03 April 2018 :
Iraq sentenced six Turkish women to death and a seventh to life in prison after being convicted on charges of terrorism, including providing support to ISIL operations.
Iraqi courts have been trying hundreds of detained women who lived with the insurgents during their three-year rule.
The women, accompanied by their young children, told the court that they had entered Iraq to join their ISIL husbands. They surrendered to Kurdish Peshmerga fighters after fleeing Tal Afar, one of the last ISIL bastions to fall to Iraqi security forces last year.
The women were found guilty under Article 4 of Iraq’s anti-terrorism law: "any person who commits, incites, plans, finances or assists in acts of terrorism".
