"We were prisoners": Kansas teen forced into ISIS speaks

She's just 15 years old, and says she was brought to Syria by her father, a strong ISIS supporter, against her will. "Shut up, sit down you're in the house, you have nothing to say", she said.

The young girl said that the father of her unborn child is dead.

She also misses the comforts of home: "There's a restaurant called Texas Roadhouse, they have steak there", she said. There's a head cut off from the shrapnel. He died in an airstrike.

"I still have hope, hope to go to school, hope to be a normal person, hope to be a mother to my child", she says.

USA forces along with Syrian militias are days away from liberating Raqqa, the self-proclaimed capital of ISIS and the terror group's last stronghold in the country.

"We are looking at approximately 4,000 civilians who remain in Raqqa, and a matter of 300-400 remaining [Daesh] fighters", coalition spokesman U.S. Colonel Ryan S. Dillon told a news conference in Baghdad.

"We have seen a trend of [Daesh] surrendering over these last months, about four to five per week. including emirs and leaders", said Dillon, adding that others were captured trying to blend in with departing civilians.

ISIS took over the city in 2014 as it seized swathes of Syria and Iraq.

Near Raqqa, Williams encountered a group of women who recently escaped ISIS territory.
