Six-year-old Christina, who was kidnapped by Daesh nearly three years ago, has been reunited with her family once again, reported the New York Post.

Christina was just three years old when she was kidnapped by Daesh in August 2014 when the terror group took the town of Qaraqosh, 10 miles southeast of Mosul. Her mother Aida Nuh said she was taken just as she was about to board a bus.

The girl was rescued by Iraqi Special Forces in an operation in the neighbourhood of Hay Al-Tanak in Mosul.

“The best day of my life is the day when Christina came back,” Nuh told Reuters.

Nuh continued: “She stayed three years with the terrorists. Of course she forgot who her mother is, who her father is, that we are her family, but she will learn again.”
