The source explained that Um Hafsa has Russian roots, but her exact name is not known. Details of her links to Iraqi intelligence also remain unknown.
“She was married to a Daesh militant in Mosul. They lived in the Seth area, when she suddenly disappeared, along with three other women from Daesh,” the source said.
According to him, the militants in Mosul arrested dozens of people, who somehow could be associated with her or are in contact with her.
The terrorists realized that she was an undercover spy after she left her apartment an hour before an air strike by the coalition struck her house.
When militants carried out interrogations of the surviving civilians it turned out that Um Hafsa warned residents about the air strike before leaving and asked all the residents to leave their houses immediately. She warned everyone except the militants.
In addition to this, Um Hafsa was the organizer of setting young Yezidi girls free by allowing them to escape sexual slavery from Daesh. The girls were taken as slaves following an attack on the town of Sinjar in 2014.
According to local residents, the Seth area and its surroundings are filled with Daesh militant patrols that are searching and interrogating local residents in order to find any evidence regarding whereabouts of the escaped spy.
