"The authorities were investigating those of us closest to her. I had police come to my house wanting to speak to me," the friend said.

"None of us had any idea but she's obviously been contemplating this for a while," said her friend.

Family and friends failed to contact her when she did not return for her children.

Family members became aware of Assma's location when they got a message via Facebook that she had travelled to the Middle East.

"She never came back [but] we received a message on a Monday saying she was in Syria," a source said.

"She's not a terrorist. I don't believe she's gone over there to fight," said a friend of her.
