Iraq launches airstrikes on IS positions inside Syria

Iraqi court sentences 4 foreign women to death for joining IS

The strike, carried out with intelligence support from the coalition, "demonstrates Iraq s commitment to destroy Daesh (IS) remnants who continue to threaten their citizens", said Brigadier General Robert B. Sofge, deputy commander of coalition operations.

On Dec. 9, 2017, Abadi officially declared full liberation of Iraq from IS militants after Iraqi forces recaptured all the areas once seized by the extremist group.

The Iraqi Central Criminal Court issued verdicts of death penalty for "three Azerbaijani women and a Kyrgyz woman for being members of IS group", the Supreme Judicial Council said in a statement.

As many as 103 foreigners have been sentenced to death in Baghdad since January, while 185 have been given life sentences. However, there are no official figures on how numerous convicted received the death penalty or how many executions have already taken place.

Tuesday verdicts came a day after the Iraqi Ministry of Justice said it had executed 13 Iraqi prisoners, 11 of them over charges of terrorism, despite worldwide calls to end the death penalty.

Iraqi warplanes carried out airstrikes against ISIS forces on the Syrian side of the border on Thursday, according to officials.
