A jihadi bride dubbed the ISIS Matchmaker was told her two children would be killed if she tried to flee the terrorist group, her family have said.

Tooba Gondal, who called Britain filthy and posed for a picture with an assault rifle shortly after reaching Syria, got her nickname for luring other British girls to marry ISIS militants.

The Home Office have barred her from the UK, but her family are pleading for her safe return, claiming she was brainwashed and felt trapped over threats her children would be murdered if she left.

According to her 20-year-old sister Maryam, Gondal tried to leave ISIS a few times over the past three years and only managed to escape when her two-year-old son Ibrahim and one-year-old daughter Asiya were close to starvation in the town Baghuz – ISIS last stronghold which has been decimated by US-backed forces.

The 25-year-old and her malnourished children were caught trying to cross the border into Turkey and now are being held in the Ain Issa refugee camp in Syria.

Maryam says her mum longs to see her grandchildren in person and kisses a photo of them on her phone every day, reports The Times.

In an interview with the Rojava Information Centre, the former Goldsmiths University English student said she feels British.

She added: I know the British public are scared of us. They dont want to deal with us, but they must.

She says ISIS brides like herself and Shamima Begum just want a normal life again and are not a threat to British society, adding that she would lose her sanity if she had to spend years stuck in a refugee camp in poor conditions.

Her father, Mohammed, 59, says she was served with a Home Office exclusion in November, banning her from the UK.

He says the mother from Walthamstow, east London, had 28 days to appeal but couldnt because the letter was dated October 2017.

It is not clear what nationality the children are as they were fathered by two different husbands who both died in battle.

Gondal was born in France but has permanent British residency rights, having moved to the UK as a toddler.
