Interpol is searching for two Austrian teenaged girls who they believe have been tricked into going to Syria to fight on the side of Islamic rebels.

The teenagers vanished last week. The first their parents knew was when they started getting messages posted on social media networks saying that they had gone to fight the "holy war."

But the parents say that they don't believe the messages are being written by the girls.  Authorities suspect they have been tricked into leaving the country.

Samra Kesinovic is just 16, and her friend Sabina Selimovic, 15. They come from Bosnian refugee families who settled in Austria after the ethnic wars of the 1990's and were born in the country.

New photos on their Facebook pages show them  brandishing Kalashnikov rifles – and in some cases surrounded by armed men.

In the latest posting they announced plans to marry so that they could become "holy warriors" and in the messages - which their familes doubt originated from them - they say: "Death is our goal". Austrian officials believe that the pair judging by the scenes around them are in a training camp and are not only already married, but also
already living in the homes of their new husbands.

In Vienna the family admitted that the two had recently started going to a local mosque run by a radical Imam.

The two girls fathers are reportedly already abroad looking for their daughters who have not contacted their parents, to have been sending messages to their friends over the Internet talking about their new lives and adding: "nobody will ever find us here."

Austrian media said the two attractive young teenagers had become the public face for the call to jihad in Syria, and alleged that they had been tricked into going to the country in order to publicise the call to arms.

Interpol has got involved in the search for two Austrian-born teenage girls who police believe may have been tricked into going to Syria where they are being used to promote the campaign for holy war.

The teenagers vanished last week and the first their parents knew of the fact that they had left the country was when they started getting messages posted on social media networks saying that they had gone to fight the holy war.

But the parents say that they don't believe the messages are written by the girls, and police believe the two young women who are both from families originally from Bosnia had been tricked into leaving the country when they vanished on 10th of April.

Samra Kesinovic is just 16, and her friend Sabina Selimovic, 15. The girls Facebook pages show to perfectly happy looking girls the could have been seen in any Western city, but in the new images posted since they left the country and fled to Turkey where they then apparently crossed into Syria the images show the girls brandishing Kalashnikovs – and in some cases surrounded by armed men.

In the latest posting they announced that they planned to marry so that they could become "holy warriors" and in the messages which their family doubt was originated from the girls they say: "death is our goal".

In Vienna the family admitted that the two had started going much more heavily to a local mosque with a reportedly came under the spell of hate preacher Ebu Tejma who converted them to his radical way of thinking.

Austrian officials believe that the pair judging by the scenes around them are in a training camp and are not only already married, but also already living in the homes of their new husbands.

The two girls fathers are reportedly already abroad looking for their daughters who have not contacted their parents, to have been sending messages to their friends over the Internet talking about their new lives and adding: "nobody will ever find us here."

Austrian media said the two attractive young teenagers had become the public face for the call to jihad in Syria, and alleged that they had been tricked into going to the country in order to publicise the call to arms.

Who could have ever seen this coming?

A teenage Austrian girl who fled to Syria along with her friend is believed to have been beaten to death after being caught trying to flee the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa.

Samra Kesinovic, 17, and her friend Sabina Selimovic became ‘poster girls’ for ISIS after they arrived in Syria in April 2014.

A number of Austrian newspapers have reported that Samra has been beaten to death for attempting to leave Raqqa, although official government sources are refusing to comment on individual cases.

According to The Local, one newspaper quotes a Tunisian woman who lived with Samra and Sabina in Raqqa.

The Tunisian woman, who was not named in the report, said she was able to escape from ISIS.

Earlier this year, a United Nations official says one of the two Austrian girls who fled their middle class homes in Vienna earlier this year to fight in Syria has definitely died in the conflict.

They first went to the Turkish capital Ankara by plane, and then on into the southern Turkish region of Adana. After that, their tracks were lost.

But they appeared on social networking sites branding Kalashnikov rifles and surrounded by armed men – photos which Austrian police said acted as recruitment posters for young girls.

David Scharia, a senior Israeli expert of the United Nations Security Council’s Counter-Terrorism Committee (CTED) said: ‘We received information just recently about two 15-year-old girls, of Bosnian origin, who left Austria, where they had been living in recent years; and everyone, the families and the intelligence services of the two countries, is looking for them.

He added: ‘Both were recruited by Islamic State. One was killed in the fighting in Syria, the other has disappeared.’

His confirmation comes three months after the Austrian government said it had informed both sets of parents of the girls that one of them might have been killed.

Remember though, this is a peaceful religion that has been hijacked by a few bad apples or something.
