BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 A.M.) Iraq has sentenced four Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) terrorists that were recently repatriated from Syria to death for their crimes, the AFP News Agency reported on Monday.

This is the first known sentence for hundreds of Iraqi jihadists that were repatriated from Syria over the last few months.

In early April, Iraq’s specialized terrorism courts began preparing cases against nearly 900 Iraqis accused of joining IS.

They had been caught in Syria by the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of Kurdish and Arab fighters, and transferred to Iraqi authorities.

On Sunday, the judiciary said it had tried four Iraqis “accused of belonging to Daesh (IS) and carrying out crimes against innocent civilians in order to destabilize Iraq and Syria.”

They were sentenced to “death by hanging” in accordance with Iraq’s 2005 counterterror law, the statement said.

The sentence was the first one of its kind for accused jihadis from Iraq who were caught in Syria.

More captured Iraqi nationals that are members of the Islamic State are expected to be repatriated from Syria in the coming weeks, the AFP Agency added.

Iraq was one of the first countries to step up to repatriate these Islamic State fighters; they have worked with both the SDF and Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to bring back their citizens for trials.

Might be a good idea to send all the Western ISIS members to Iraq as well instead of allowing the bleeding hearts back home to demand they be returned to a soft option.

Actually, the West is not so hot at letting these back to judge them : some vowed to do so but considering the public opinion reactions, it smells the political suicide to anyone who will dare. Hey, someone in jail here costs €50k a year and jails are already overpopulated. Moreover, these creeps will do their “dawa” onto convict, so they must be kept in isolation which is even more expensive… Nobody wand to pay their jail fees, many even consider that DGSE shouldn’t have brought Carlos the Jackal to justice but simply offered him a pair of concrete shoes… Read more »

I fully agree with you . When does a leopard change its spots . Someone like that in prison would be a draward too a certain group of undesirables that would like to learn.I am sure Carlos would have preferred the shoes or a copper jacket to what he has now which is worse .
