An Iraqi housewife and militia commander named Wahida Mohamed alias Um Hanadi, has attained notoriety for her acts of violence against Islamic State (IS) members, and has received personal death threats from its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Her crime? She has been fighting ISIS in its various forms since 2004, and employs gruesome methods of executing her victims.
According to reports, Um Hanadi kills ISIS terrorists, beheads them and cooks their heads. She also publishes pictures of herself hoisting the heads of decapitated extremists in the air.
Um Hanadi told CNN, “I fought them. I beheaded them. I cooked their heads, I burned their bodies.”
Hanadi’s lust for revenge reportedly comes from the fact that Al Qaeda and ISIS have together murdered two of her husbands, her father and three brothers since 2003.
ISIS and Al Qaeda have tried to kill Hanadi six times between 2006 and 2014, but failed. Most have been car bomb plots. She has suffered several wounds to her arms and head as a result of the attacks.
Leading a brigade of 70 militia, she has driven ISIS from her Iraqi village armed with only Kalashnikovs, said the reports.
Um Hanadi reportedly claims that she is even higher on ISIS’ hit list than the Iraqi prime minister. Despite her head, arms and legs being littered with shrapnel wounds, she refuses to stop fighting, said the reports.
