A court in Iraq has sentenced 4 Daesh militants to death for taking part in attacks against army and security forces in Fallujah and Ramadi in western Iraq.
The Supreme Judicial Council in Iraq said in a statement that the verdicts were issued under provisions of Iraq’s anti-terrorism law. Which were passed to address the growing threat posed by Islamic State since 2014 when they embarked on a campaign to topple the government and establish an Islamic Caliphate.
Last week, the Mosul Criminal Court sentenced 212 people to death and 150 others to life in prison for links to the Daesh terrorist group.
Late 2017, officials in Baghdad declared that Daesh’s military presence in Iraq had been all but eliminated. However, it appears the notorious terrorist group still maintains “sleeper cells” in several parts of the country, including oil-rich Kirkuk province.
