A third Norwegian ISIS woman has asked for help to get to Norway via a third party. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed the information to Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).

“On May 14, another Norwegian woman, via a third party, requested assistance to return to Norway,” Siri Svendsen at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs told NRK.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs does not wish – out of consideration for the duty of confidentiality – to state which of the four remaining Norwegian ISIS-affiliated women in Syria has now asked for help. 

It does also not want to disclose whether she has children that she wants to bring to Norway.

Several cases

In the course of several days, two new ISIS-affiliated women have asked for help to return to Norway. On Tuesday, newspaper Aftenposten wrote that 29-year-old Aisha Shezadi Kausar had asked the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) for support in returning home from Syria.

Shezadi Kausar lives with her son in the Roj refugee camp in Syria.

In total, there are two women from Bærum and a woman from Levanger in the Al-Hol camp. The two from Bærum both have children.

Recently, a 30-year-old woman who was brought home from Syria with her two children in January last year was sentenced to three and a half years in prison for her participation in ISIS. She appealed the verdict on the spot.
