Nimet from Berlin is 16 years old when she receives a WhatsApp message from Saed, a young man from Turkey. They are in constant contact and soon he calls her “his wife”. She gets entirely involved with him, thus destroying all her other friendships. What Nimet doesn’t know, however: Saed is a Jihadist. When she loses contact with him, a stranger calls and says she has to come to his rescue as soon as possible. Nimet hurries to get to the Turkish-Syrian border …

In her impressive report, Güner Yasemin Balci narrates the story of how Nimet is recruited as a Jihad bride and only realizes in the “Caliphate” that she was being used. Her story shows why and how so many young women became part of IS.
