ISIS offers fridges, cookers and carpets to recruits: Reports
Potential ISIS militants in Britain are being offered accommodation fitted with domestic appliances, to lure them to Syria
Potential ISIS militants in Britain are being offered accommodation fitted with domestic appliances, to lure them to Syria, British newspaper the Daily Mail has reported.
Washing machines, fridges, cookers, beds and carpets have all been listed in a bid to coax Brits to join the militants in Syria. They are also being offered extra pay for every child they take with them, the report claimed.
Former supermarket security guard Omar Hussain, 27, who apparently now acts as an ISIS propagandist in western Syria is quoted by the newspaper as saying that potential fighters will be given receive rent, as well as monthly supplies of basic foods such as bread, rice and pasta.
He adds: “They [ISIS] also pay you additional money to support your wife, and if you have children, then this monthly wage increases per every child.
“If this isn’t enough, then Dawlah (ISIS) also provides your family with the basic household items, such as a washing machine, fridge, cooker, carpets, mattresses and some other kitchen items.”
Hussain is said to have previously lived with his mother in the southeastern town of High Wycombe near London, until he left last year to join ISIS.
It is thought ISIS pays its fighters a monthly wage of approximately $500.
