According to an official, a court in Iraq sentenced three French residents to death after they were found guilty of joining the Daesh* terrorist group.

Kevin Gonot, Leonard Lopez and Salim Machou were captured in Syria by a US-backed group fighting the terrorists.

They are the first French Daesh members to receive death sentences in Iraq, where they were transported to for the court trial.

In 2014, vast swathes of Iraq were seized by Daesh. At the end of 2017, then-Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi declared an end to the country’s fight against the terror group as Iraqi troops re-established complete control over the country’s border with Syria.

These 3 were sentenced on Sunday, so was a 4th, Mustapha Merzoughi, on Monday. I just hope some idiots at our MFA won’t lobby to have these back to France : these have pledged allegiance to the Islamic State which is an enemy of France, they shall assume the consequences of their acts, there is no reason to provide any assistance to traitors, whic, any way, are pro-death penalty (and even torture) since they joined ISIS which has/had such practises.
