Basse painted a haunting image of ISIS separating her from her 6-year-old daughter.

“They took her hands out of my hands, and put her into the hands of the enemy ... every day and night I imagine what Daesh are doing to her. One day she may come back, but I know that she won’t recognize me as her mother.”
Basse has not seen her daughter for six years, her parents or seven brothers.
