Begum said they were “being killed right now unjustly. It’s a two-way thing really because women and children are being killed back in the Islamic State right now and it’s kind of retaliation.
“Like, their [IS] justification was that it was retaliation so I thought ‘Okay, that is a fair justification’.” It’s kind of retaliation.”
She added: “I do feel that it’s wrong that innocent people did get killed. It’s one thing to kill a soldier that is fighting you, it’s self-defence, but to kill the people like women and children.
