Iraqi court sentences IS convict to life in jail for making bombs in Mosul

Baghdad’s central criminal court.

Baghdad ( – An Iraqi court has sentenced an Islamic State militant to life in jail over his involvement in making bombs in Mosul, once a stronghold of the terrorist group.

The militant was found guilty of “running a workshop for the manufacture of explosive charges in Ba’ashiqah district in Mosul,” Baghdad Today quoted the Supreme Judicial Council as saying in a statement on Monday.

“The convict was arrested in Samarra city after fleeing from Mosul city,” the statement read.

Iraqi courts have sentenced many of Islamic State members, including a big number of female members, to death over joining the militant group.

The exact number of detained militants is still unknown, however, it’s estimated to be at thousands. It’s also unclear how many members are likely to face death sentences.
