‘I fought them. I beheaded them. I cooked their head,’ says ISIS-fighting granny

An AK-47-toting grandmother who beheads and cooks ISIS terrorists proudly sits atop the jihadists’ most wanted list.
Wahida Mohamed Al-Jumaily -- who lost her husband, father and three brothers to the death cult -- told Al Sabah she has killed 18 terrorists so far.
“I fought them. I beheaded them. I cooked their heads, I burned their bodies,” the 39-year-old Iraqi recently told CNN, adding she has survived six assassination attempts.
“I received threats from the top leadership of ISIS, including from (ISIS leader) Abu Bakr (al-Baghdadi) himself. I’m at the top of their most wanted list, even more than the prime minister (of Iraq, Haider al-Abadi).”
The long road from housewife to freedom fighter was one covered in blood, she told Al Sabah.
Her awakening was triggered when her son-in-law was mercilessly tortured by ISIS monsters, who cut off his hands and feet before executing him in 2014. Her second husband was also a victim of ISIS.
Now, she leads a group of more than 70 fighters who are the instrument of her revenge.
In Facebook photos, she proudly holds the heads of dead ISIS killers while a pot with two more heads boils. Her two daughters are ready to join her in battle but right now they’re busy raising their children.
And yet, for the terror she instils in ISIS, she still insists she’s a simple housewife. The threats and violence will not deter her -- even though she has been wounded and has a price on her head.
“All that has not stopped me from fighting,” she said.
