brahim Halane made the 2,000-mile dash after talented schoolgirls Salma and Zahra headed to the war zone controlled by Islamic terror group Isis
The father of twin 16-year-old girls who ran away from Britain to Syria to become “Jihadi brides” has flown to the Turkish border to find them, reports the Sunday People.
Ibrahim Halane made the 2,000-mile dash after talented schoolgirls Salma and Zahra headed to the war zone controlled by Islamic terror group Isis.
The distraught dad is pleading with local police and officials in his desperate bid to find the pair and bring them back to Manchester.
He fears their air tickets were paid for by Jihad terrorists who want them as wives.
Mr Halane’s son Ahmed, 21, joined Isis – who massacred hundreds of unarmed prisoners in Iraq last month – about a year ago.
Meanwhile Mr Halane’s wife and other children have flown to Dubai for what was originally booked as a family holiday, including the twins, but is now a crisis meeting.
A family friend told the Sunday People: “The twins’ dad has gone to the Turkish border to look for them. Their mum went to Dubai on Thursday with the others.”
Eldest daughter Hafsa, 25, who is studying medicine in Denmark, has gone with the family to Dubai.
Hafsa enrolled at Copenhagen university after a degree from Manchester university.
She volunteered for the Danish Muslim charity Walking Future which helps people shattered by war in Afghanistan,
A friend said: “Hafsa is totally opposed to Isis and just wants peace. She won’t be able to believe her sisters have been so silly.
“Rather than helping, they have just put more lives at risk.”
