As Daesh militants routed in Iraq, their families fear reprisalsTheir husbands, sons and brothers are dead, but the women and children Daesh (ISIS) militants left behind will live to pay the price for their actions. As Daesh's days of ruling over vast swaths of Iraq come to an end, questions are emerging about what to do with their families.Leaflets threatening militants' families have appeared in areas retaken from Daesh, and vigilantes have thrown grenades at their homes.Local authorities in Mosul recently issued a decree to exile Daesh families to camps so they can be rehabilitated ideologically.Umm Hamoudi's daughter was only 14 years old when her father married her off to a Daesh militant.None of Umm Youssef's close male relatives joined Daesh, she said.
