Consequences: Iraqi Court Sentences German Woman to Death for Joining ISIS (VIDEO)
An Iraqi court sentenced a German woman to death for joining ISIS in Mosul, Iraq.
There is actual footage of the German jihadi bride being captured in Iraq after the collapse of ISIS.
An Iraqi court on Sunday sentenced to death a German woman of Moroccan origin for membership of Islamic State, a spokesman said.
The German national was captured by Iraqi forces during the battle for Mosul last year, the spokesman said, declining to identify her. She is the first foreign woman to be sentenced to death in Iraq for joining the militant group.
She can appeal the sentence, said Abdul-Sattar al-Birqdar, spokesman for Iraq’s Supreme Judicial Council in Baghdad.
“She confessed that she traveled with her two daughters from Germany to Syria and then joined Daesh in Iraq,” Birqdar said, referring to Islamic State by an Arabic acronym.
The woman was convicted of participating in attacks on Iraqi security forces and offering the militant group logistical support, said Birqdar.
