Iraqi court sentences German woman to death over joining IS group

German woman sentenced to death in Iraq for joining Islamic State

Iraqi forces detained a number of foreign women as they drove Islamic State from the territory it once controlled in northern and central Iraq.

An Iraqi court Sunday sentenced a female German citizen to death for joining Islamic State (IS) militants group, a judicial spokesman said.

He said that the woman was accompanied with her two daughters, who also got married to members of the terrorist group.

According to the Reuters news agency, the sentenced woman was caught during the battle against Daesh in the Iraqi city of Mosul a year ago.

She was sentenced for providing 'logistical support and helping the terrorist group to carry out crimes, ' said Abdel Settar Bayraqdar, a spokesman for the court.

"She confessed that she travelled with her two daughters from Germany to Syria and then joined Daesh in Iraq", Birqdar said, referring to ISIS by an Arabic acronym.

Baghdad declared victory over IS in December, after expelling the jihadists from Mosul in a gruelling months-long offensive.

Researcher Kim Cragin of the National Defense University wrote on the Lawfare security blog in late November that 5,395 foreigners were in jail in Syria and Iraq.

Many other IS rebels and their wives are thought to have escaped capture by blending in with civilians fleeing the fighting.

In September 2017, the same court sentenced to death a Russian man captured in Mosul who was found guilty of fighting for Isis.
