Report: French Jewish girl joined ISIS


(JTA) — A Jewish girl was among the some 100 girls and young women who have left France in recent weeks to join ISIS in Syria, according to a French security official.

The French security official, who spoke anonymously to the Daily Mail, did not provide any other details on the Jewish girl, such as her age and how she made her way to Syria.

The girls’ decision to join ISIS and their actual departure came after months of recruitment, mostly online, targeting adolescents, the British newspaper reported. They are serving as wives, babysitters and housekeepers for jihadists.

Between 20 and 50 young girls have also come to Syria to join ISIS from Britain, according to the newspaper.
