Khadizhad Magomedova shared in detail how her 3-year-old nephew Ali Magomedov ended up in territory under the control of self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIL/ISIS) in Iraq, speaking to RT in an exclusive interview filmed in Khasavyurt, Thursday.

SOT, Khadizhad Magomedova, Ali Magomedov’s Aunt (Russian): “I ask anyone who sees this to help us get this child back home to his family and also help find the others that are still missing.” *JUMPCUT AT SOURCE*

SOT, Khadizhad Magomedova, Ali Magomedov’s Aunt (Russian): “He’s called Khuzaifa and this is Ali, the one in the video. All three of them could be there together. Maybe they [the people looking for them] don’t know they’re brothers from the same family. So they have a photo and they could use it to recognise them.”

SOT, Khadizhad Magomedova, Ali Magomedov’s Aunt (Russian): “She left and didn’t say anything to us [about joining ISIS]. She told us that she and her husband were going to Moscow for work, that they would relocate there. [She said] that they had offered her husband a good job with a good salary and they left. After some time they told us that they were in Istanbul with the children, that they were going to live there. When they left what could we do? No one knew, not my parents nor his parents, no one knew about this. They arranged their documents secretly. We have relatives in Istanbul we thought they were going to live there. Then they disappeared altogether for three or four months without any communication and we understood that they had joined ISIS. We couldn’t do anything, they had stopped communicating altogether.”

SOT, Khadizhad Magomedova, Ali Magomedov’s Aunt (Russian): “I uploaded photos to all the groups, to Instagram, saying that I was looking for them. Someone from one of the groups sent me this video and said that it looks like your nephew, I sent them a photo [of him], I instantly recognised my nephew in that video, the first time I watched it.”

SOT, Khadizhad Magomedova, Ali Magomedov’s Aunt (Russian): “We heard from her again and she said that her husband had already been killed and she was alone with three children and doesn’t know what to do. We asked her if she could somehow make it across the border and we thought that we could go and get her out of there and bring her home. She said she had no documents for herself or for her children and can’t come back. That she gave birth to her third boy there. He’s called Yusuf and these are the last photos she sent. She didn’t even send them herself. She said that she cannot write to us because she is in a place that has no network signal. They [ISIS terrorists] give her a tablet computer for 15-20 minutes, she records her voice messages, takes some photos and sends them to her relatives so that they don’t worry because everything is ok. She can’t call or communicate herself. Someone takes the tablet to somewhere that has a network connection and sends them [voice messages and photos] to us.” *JUMPCUT AT SOURCE*

SOT, Khadizhad Magomedova, Ali Magomedov’s Aunt (Russian): “This is my sister with the boy in the video. These are the three children, this is the one in the video and these two aren’t there.” *JUMPCUT AT SOURCE*

SOT, Khadizhad Magomedova, Ali Magomedov’s Aunt (Russian): “Of course I want to look for her too. Find out what situation she’s got herself into, maybe she’s ended up somewhere she can’t escape from. At least do something to bring her and her children back.” *JUMPCUT AT SOURCE*

SOT, Khadizhad Magomedova, Ali Magomedov’s Aunt (Russian): “This is my sister. Their mother Patimat Nazhmudinovna Magomedova. A copy of her passport.”

SOT, Khadizhad Magomedova, Ali Magomedov’s Aunt (Russian): “I want to bring all my relatives back to their homeland.”

SOT, Khadizhad Magomedova, Ali Magomedov’s Aunt (Russian): “I’m very grateful to everyone who has looked after the children that have lost their mothers and fathers. I’m grateful from the bottom of my heart, may Allah protect you and may you never experience any of these troubles.”
