Britain removes citizenship from two more IS brides

Mohammed T Akunjee, who represented the family of the 19-year-old, had posted on his Twitter account: "We have strong but as yet unconfirmed reports that Shamima Begums son has died".

Jarrah died of pneumonia on Thursday, according to a medical certificate.

Ms Begum, who fled east London to join the cult aged 15, had pleaded to return to Britain with her boy after already losing two children, but Home Secretary Sajid Javid revoked her passport.

Speaking to Matt Frei, the former Met chief superintendent Dal Babu said that Shamima Begum's child was "innocent" amid a row over whether the Isis bride should be allowed to return to the UK.

The minister has not provided any comment since the boy's death, he said prior to this news that he felt "nothing but sympathy" for "perfectly innocent" children born in the war zone.

Following news of the boy's death, Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott criticised Javid's decision. There she married a Dutch ISIS fighter, but following the death of two children, the now 19-year-old requested to return to the United Kingdom with her third baby.

Quoting a paramedic working for the Kurdish Red Crescent, the BBC reported that the infant was taken to a camp clinic Thursday morning after the child began having trouble breathing.

"The Government will continue to do whatever we can to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and travelling to unsafe conflict zones".

Begum is now being held in a refugee camp in Syria, and her child had been with her. "He was a British Citizen".

Begum's family said the boy appeared to be in good health when he was born on February 17.

"It is possible the death of this baby boy and others could have been avoided", she said.

Two more jihadi brides being held with their children in Syrian refugee camps have been stripped of their British citizenship, it has been reported.

"If the British Government has stripped her of her nationality, then another country should adopt her, any Muslim country".

Begum's sister, Renu, wrote to Javid last month asking that for his help in bringing Shamima's newborn son to the UK. "This is callous and inhumane".

She said: "Before the lives of more children are put at risk, these women should be brought back to Britain, face investigation for any crimes they have committed in Syria, and their children should be given the care and support they need".

The letter asked Begum's family to make her aware of the decision and of her right to appeal.

"It's a two-way thing, really", she told the BBC, adding that the suicide bomber that killed 22 civilians at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester was a "kind of retaliation" for bombardments of ISIS-held enclaves, adding, "So I thought, ok, that is a fair justification".
