The 21-year-old, who came to ISIL as a child, is being held in a detention center in Syria after her British citizenship was revoked in 2019.

The UK Supreme Court ruled Friday that Shamima Begum, a schoolgirl who was stripped of her citizenship after fleeing to Syria to join ISIL (also known as ISIS), will not be allowed to return to the country, pending the ruling dispute because it is a security risk.

Begum left London in 2015 at the age of 15 and went with two friends to Syria via Turkey.

In Syria she married an ISIL fighter and lived in Raqqa, the capital of the self-declared caliphate, where she stayed for four years until she was discovered in an internment camp.

She has had three children since leaving the UK, but all of the infants have since died.

The 21-year-old is currently in a detention center in Syria after her British citizenship was revoked in 2019.

The UK Court of Appeals had previously agreed that only if she was allowed to return to the UK she could only file a fair appeal against this decision.
