An Iraqi court sentenced a six-year jail sentence against a young German girl. The 17-year-old boy was convicted of being a member of the radical group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
An Iraqi judicial source told AFP on Tuesday (20/2/2018) that the German teenager was sentenced to five years in prison for being a member of ISIS and sentenced to one year in prison for illegally entering Iraqi territory . The teen's identity was not released to the public.
On January 21, a German woman of Moroccan descent was sentenced to death by an Iraqi court. The woman was found guilty of indictment of providing 'logistical support and assisting terrorist groups to commit crimes'.
The two Germans were among the hundreds of alleged ISIS foreigners detained by Iraqi authorities. In December 2017, Iraqi authorities declared victory over ISIS after three years of fighting.
German media reports identified the dead German woman as Lamia K. He reportedly left Mannheim in August 2014 and captured Iraqi military forces in Mosul in the final stages in July 2017.
In addition to the two men who have been convicted, there are still two other German women detained in Iraq. One of them is a teenager named Linda W who disappeared from his home in Saxony in 2016. When meeting with German journalists in Baghdad last year, Lindi claimed to regret his actions and wanted to go home to his family.
In a separate case, an alleged French militant who has been convicted seven months in prison for illegally entering Iraq, ordered to be released and deported.
Later on Sunday (18/2) local time, a Turkish woman was sentenced to death for joining ISIS. The other 11 foreign women, who are the widows of the dead militants, were sentenced to life imprisonment on the same indictment.
