A court in Iran has sentenced to jail sixteen women who traveled to Syria to join the Islamic State terrorist organization. The women were also ordered to pay back any money they had received from the Sunni Muslim jihadist group.
The women had gone to Syria to support Daesh, had received terrorist training and carried out some operations there, and were arrested upon their return to Iran.
This is not the first time that Iran’s security forces arrest members of the Takfiri terrorist outfit. A division of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said in January that it had arrested a number of Daesh terrorists in the west of the country.
