Iraq Sentences Turkish ISIS Brides To Death By Hanging

The women confessed to marrying IS fighters or providing the group "with logistical aid or helping them carry out terrorist attacks", the judge said.

He added the convicts were Turkish citizens who had "provided logistical support to Daesh and had married militants of the organization".

Last week, the court issued a verdict of death penalty for a female Turkish citizen and issued 10 verdicts of life sentences for other women from different countries, according to an earlier statement by Biraqdar.

Since August, Iraq has detained and tried hundreds of women and children to uncover involvement with ISIS. Many women came or were brought from overseas in the territories under the control of the jihadist group.

On Thursday, the Iraqi authorities handed over four women and 27 children from IS families to Russian Federation, after being cleared of charges of involvement in terrorist operations against civilians or security forces, Iraqi Foreign Ministry said.

Hundreds of women and children have been detained in Iraq over alleged links to Isis since the Islamist group lost control of its final strongholds in the country past year.

In January a German woman captured during the 2017 battle for Mosul was sentenced to death for joining IS. It also argues that in cases where a suspect is claimed to be a Daesh member "without evidence of any other serious crime, authorities should consider alternatives to criminal prosecution".

Under Iraq's anti-terror law, anyone found guilty of joining IS can be handed the death penalty, including non-combatants.

The women told the court that they had entered Iraq illegally to be with their husbands who had left to join IS, which at the time was gaining significant ground in Iraq and Syria.
