The ISIS member Martin Lemke from Germany was detained by Kurdish forces after he fled the last pocket controlled by terrorists.
His third wife, who gave her name as Leonora, told that Lemke, his second wife and herself fled the fighting together. “We gave up together,” the 19-year-old woman said.
Leonora claims Lemke had a health problem which meant he could not fight and claimed he had worked mostly as a technician for ISIS. According to a number of investigations published by German newspapers, Lemke was an influential figure among foreign jihadists in Syria.
The reports say the German jihadist arrived in Raqqa in November 2014 and joined the Hisbah (Islamic police). Then he became a member of the ISIS intelligence service “Amniyat”.
Lemke’s second wife, another German national who said her name is Sabina and aged 34, was less willing to speak but confirmed that she fled the last IS pocket with her husband.
