The Wasit criminal court issued the ruling “after the pair admitted belonging to Islamic State,” Abdul-Sattar al-Birqdar, the spokesman for the Supreme Judicial Council, told Alghad Press on May 21.
“One of the terrorists was behind a car bomb blast in Wasit governorate in August 2011 that left scores of innocent civilians dead, while the other was involved in several terrorist attacks in Taj al-Din area in the governorate,” the spokesman noted.
Al-Birqdar added that another terrorist was sentenced to life in jail over collaborating with the Free Syrian Army.
