Teen taken to Syria by his mum to join ISIS calls on British Muslims to wage jihad on UK
A TEENAGER who was taken from Britain to Syria by his mother has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State and urged fellow Britons to wage jihad in the UK.

Ibrahim Iqbal, 15, also posted pictures of himself holding an AK47 assault rifle along with ammunition and grenades.
Iqbal was just 14 when his mother took him and 11 other family members to ISIS-held territory from their Bradford home last year.
His mother, 35-year old Sugra Dawood, took Iqbal and her four other children last year.
She left Britain without her husband Akhtar Iqbal to join up with her jihadi brother Ahmed.
Sugra was joined by her sisters Zohra Dawood, 33, and Khadija Dawood, 31, and their four children, making them the largest British family to join the death cult.
Last year, her husband made an emotional plea to his eldest son Junaid to come back home.

Mr Iqbal said: "If you watch this video, please ring me, please contact me. I love you, all of you. Please, please come back home so we can live a normal life."
But his plea appears to have been ignored by his family, after pictures were posted on Facebook of Iqbal and Jinaid holding AK47 rifles with ammunition and other weapons.
On Friday, Iqbal wrote: "First of all I say Alhamdulillah (praise be to God) Allah has brought me to the khilafah (caliphate) and saved me from the oppression of the Kuffar (unbeliever).
"Secondly, I say to all the Muslims that there is no land where you will be honoured except in the land of the khilafah and it is obligatory for every Muslim to come to the khilafah and pledge your allegiance to Amir al Mumineen (commander of the faithful) Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi and who ever does not then he dies the death of jaahiliyah (non-Muslims).
"Last of all, if the government closes the door of migrating to the khilafah then you open the door of jihad in their land."
On Saturday, he took to Facebook again, writing: "Nobody has an excuse to be not fighting in the path of Allah. Physically fighting not in your mind as some stupid people say."
There is confusion over how the sisters made it to Syria, after they were placed under police surveillance following the disappearance of their brother.
The family was thought to have gone on a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia.

However while in the Sunni kingdom, they boarded flights to Istanbul instead of returning home to Bradford.
They are then believed to have sneaked over into the Syrian border from Turkey.
A spokesman for the North East Counter Terrorism Unit, which is leading the investigation into the family’s disappearance, said: 'We are aware of posts made on social media. These are currently being reviewed to establish if any offences have been committed.'
