Iraq Sentences 15 Turkish Women To Death for Joining IS

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.

Sixteen Turkish women have been sentenced to death by hanging after having been found guilty of joining ISIS, Iraqi judiciary officials announced Sunday.

Judge Abdul-Sattar al-Birqdar said the court issued the sentences "after it was proven they belong to the [IS] terrorist group and after they confessed to marrying [IS] elements or providing members of the group with logistical aid or helping them carry out terrorist attacks". Iraq has claimed victory over the group and is now put IS members and its supporters on trial.

Nonetheless, the trials and harsh sentences have aroused deep concern among many global human rights groups.

Another Turkish female also was handed a death sentence last week for her ISIS participation, while 10 other foreigners were given life behind bars.

A German woman was sentenced to death last month for belonging to the group and a Russian fighter was also sentenced to death in Iraq past year for joining the hardline group.

Aged between 20 and 50, the women said they had entered Iraq illegally to join their husbands who were heading to fight for the self-proclaimed "caliphate" straddling vast areas of Iraq and Syria, the official added. At that time he estimated that half of all Saudi jihadists come to Iraq as suicide bombers, who in the past six months have been responsible for killing and maiming at least 4000 Iraqis.

Saad al-Hadithi, spokesman of Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi's media office, confirmed that all "foreign nationals who committed crimes and violations against the people of Iraq, whether directly or by supporting the terrorist IS militants, will be subject to the Iraqi law". Melina Bougedir, 27, was detained last summer as Iraqi troops took over the northern city of Mosul from extremists.
