A young Danish woman who gave up her studies to fight ISIS has claimed she has a $1million bounty on her head but said she is being treated as “a terrorist” back home.

Joanna Palani, 22, claims to have killed 100 militants during battles in Iraq and Syria.

She also says she freed a group of women and children being held as sex slaves by ISIS and then taught them how to become soldiers.

Palani is of Iranian-Kurdish ancestry and her father and grandfather were both Peshmerga fighters.

She was born in a UN refugee camp before moving to Copenhagen as a toddler and learned to fire a gun at nine-years-old.

But she says life has been a struggle since she returned home from her heroics.

She said: “I was willing to give up my life and my freedom to stop ISIS advancing, so that everyone in Europe can be safe.

“This was my choice.

“But I am seen as a terrorist by my own country.”

Joanna added: “I live in one of the best countries in the world but I am hungry and homeless and freezing cold in bed at night, even though I am working full time. I don’t trust anyone.”

Speaking about her battles with ISIS, the former student had boasted of her success.

“ISIS fighters are very easy to kill,” she previously told Vice.

“ISIS fighters are very good at sacrificing their own lives, but Assad’s soldiers are very well-trained and they are specialist killing machines.”
