LONDON: British media outlet claimed that ISIS WARPED Islamic State targeting popular dating sites to lure jihadi brides to Syria and Iraq.
According to the Express UK, the jihadi group has been built a propaganda network across social media platforms including Telegram, Twitter and Facebook.
ISIS recruiters now are taking to an Arabic-language dating site to encourage Muslim women to marry fighters.
British site further claimed that the site, which has not been identified, is believed to be used by devout Muslims across the Middle East to find love.
An intelligence official said: “We were approached by a family whose daughter was speaking to dangerous people online.”
He added: “I told them to close her Twitter and Telegram [accounts] but they said, ‘No, it’s the dating site she is on’.”
The daughter is said to have been messaged by a man who wanted to lure her to Raqqa, ISIS’ de-facto capital.
The Jordan-based insider went on: “He told her about the big house she would have and the servants.
“[He said] her husband would be a handsome fighter – he even sent her photos of the beautiful jewellery he would buy her.
“Her case just shows you that even on dating sites ISIS is recruiting.”
In 2014 it was reported a British teenager who travelled to Syria was groomed on a Twitter account called Jihad Matchmaker.
Friends of Yusra Hussien, from Bristol, said she may have been “brainwashed” by her online contacts with ISIS militants.
Jihad Matchmaker, which has since been closed, encouraged followers to find a partner to help “prevent you from sins”.
