BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:50 P.M.) – The Iraqi judicial courts have sentenced over 3,000 Islamic State (ISIS) to death, the Associated Press (AP) reported on Wednesday.
According to the statistical analysis conducted by the Associated Press, Iraq has detained or imprisoned 19,000 people for terror-related offenses.
The AP conducted this analysis after they were provided a spreadsheet from unnamed Iraqi official; the data on the spreadsheet allegedly had information about those detained and imprisoned for terror-related offenses.
“The AP determined that 8,861 of the prisoners listed in the spreadsheet were convicted of terrorism-related charges since the beginning of 2013 — arrests overwhelmingly likely to be linked to the Islamic State group, according to an intelligence figure in Baghdad,” the AP report claimed.
The Iraqi government has yet to issue a statement regarding these latest claims from the AP.
