Two teenage girls who were used to an easy life, seemed to be regretting their actions of joining ISIS.

Security services sources in Austria, said that the two teenage girls have been able to contact their families to say that they had enough and wanted to come home.

However, the girls know that there’s almost no chance that they will be able to leave their new lives after their photos were shared throughout the world.

The Oesterreich newspaper, which revealed that the girls want to come home, is known to have close connections to those investigating the disappearance of the two girls and are in close contact with their families.

The parents had been trying to find a way to contact their daughters and some form of communication is believed to have been established.

Samra Kesinovic, 17, and her friend, Sabina Selimovic, 15, who grew up in the Austrian capital Vienna, became the poster girls for jihad in Syria.

In April, they left a note telling their parents: “Do not look for us. We will serve Allah – and we will die for him.”

Once they arrived, it is believed that they were married to local fighters, and the two girls are believed to be pregnant.

The police in Austria, believe that the social networking accounts of the girls were taken over by jihadists and manipulated to encourage other girls to come to Syria.

People took to Facebook, to express their opinion on the girls.
