Recruiter of female suicide bombers

She is known as the “Mother of Believers” but this woman is extremely deadly in her actions. Samira Jassim was captured by the Iraqi forces and faced interrogation over her activities in recruiting female suicide bombers.

The women, after being raped, were convinced by this woman that they should blow themselves up to hide their shame. She worked with the Sunni militant group Ansar al-Sunnah in the Diyala province.

She had recruited up to 80 women to carry out their deadly task. The reason that this tactic was introduced is that it is haram for a man to conduct a body search of a woman, plus the ugly clothing that is worn makes it easy to hide a bomb underneath the garment.
