Isis has reportedly offered a $1 million reward for the killing of a Kurdish-Danish woman, Joanna Palani, for fighting against the terror outfit.
The Arab media said the bounty has been declared by ISIS on different social media channels in several different languages.
Palani fled her homeland of Denmark in 2014 to fight ISIS on the frontline in Syria and Iraq.
She is currently behind bars and facing trial in Copenhagen for leaving the country after she violated Denmark’s ‘foreign fighter’ rule, which aims to stop Danes who fight alongside terror groups.
Ironically, if found guilty she faces up to two years in prison under the new laws designed to stem the flow of Isis fighters from Denmark to the Middle East.
The politics and philosophy student fought with the Peshgerma in Iraq and the the YPG militia in Syria. Reports suggest the girl has helped the Kurds liberate a village near Mosul during her stay of one year in the war-ravaged region.
Last year she returned home to finish her studies in Denmark, where cops confiscated her passport and handed her a travel ban. Denmark has imposed a tough law given that the country has one of the largest number of foreign fighters in Syria per capita.
Palani’s family has origins from Iranian Kurdistan and was born in a refugee camp in Ramadi in Iraq during the first Gulf War. When she was young Joanna’s family was granted asylum in Denmark. She credits her ‘European values’ as inspiration behind her fight.
On her Facebook page, she wrote that her fight is for the “human rights of all people” and “democracy and Western values.” But this has disturbed the ISIS.
Earlier this year, she revealed ISIS soldiers are ‘very easy to kill’ compared to President Assad’s ‘specialist killing machines.’
She also described the sickening moment she found a large group of children being held for sexual abuse by ISIS terrorists after liberating a village near Mosul.
