Bloody end for jihad girl

- Chris Perez, Wires

One of the two teens who fled Austria last year to become a “poster girl” for ISIS has been beaten to death after trying to escape the group’s Syrian stronghold of Raqqa.

A Tunisian woman who had been living with Samra Kesinovic, 18, says the teen was killed by Islamic State extremists after she tried to flee recently, according to The Local Austria.

The women were married to ISIS militants once they arrived.

Kesinovic (above and, reportedly, inset) and friend Sabina Selimovic, 15, made headlines in April 2014 when they ran away from their homes in Vienna and took up jihad with radical militants in Syria.

The pals had traveled to the wartorn nation with the hopes of becoming “jihadi brides” — and they later married two of the ISIS savages upon their arrival.

Photos posted to social media in the following months showed the two wearing black burkas and wielding AK47s.

Officials said earlier this year they believed Selimovic had been killed during a skirmish in Syria.

The girls were just two in a long list of young female Austrian nationals who have joined the bloodthirs­ty terror group in recent years.

The European country is a wellknown target for ISIS recruitmen­t, and the ringleader behind this month’s Paris terror attacks was even busted at a checkpoint in northern Austria in September. He claimed to be on vacation.
