Iraqi Grandmother 'Cooked The Heads Of ISIS Fighters'

A 39-year-old Iraqi grandmother who said she decapitated and cooked the heads of ISIS fighters to avenge her family now reportedly tops the terrorist group's list of most wanted in the country.

Wahida Mohamed Al-Jumaily, 39, said she killed ISIS fighters to get revenge for her husband, father and brothers, who were all killed by the group, the Daily Mail reports. She has reportedly survived six attempts on her life, and commands a militia group of 70 which helped drive ISIS militants away from the town of Shirqat.

"I began fighting the terrorists in 2004, working with Iraqi security forces and the coalition," said Jumaily.

In graphic Facebook photos, Jumaily, who is also known as Um Hanadi, is seen in photos holding decapitated heads as well as machetes and guns. One photo shows her cooking what appear to be two severed heads in a pot.

The terror group killed Jumaily's second husband in 2016, and killed her husband and three brothers earlier, according to the Independent. She told CNN she attacked ISIS fighters to get vengeance for her family.

"I fought them, I beheaded them, I cooked their heads, I burned their bodies," Jumaily said.

Jumaily said she has received threats on her life from top ISIS leaders. "I'm at the top of their most wanted list, even more than the prime minister," she said.

"Six times they tried to assassinate me," she claims. "I have shrapnel in my head and legs, my ribs were broken, but all that didn't stop me from fighting."

The grandmother, who describes herself as a "housewife," said that her two daughters, 22 and 20, are trained to fight, but are currently focusing on raising their own children.
