Iraq air strikes inflicted on ISIS in Syria

Iraqi court sentences 4 foreign women to death for joining IS

Last summer, Iraqi forces liberated Mosul from Daesh - which overran much of Iraq in mid-2014 - after a grueling nine-month military campaign. Iraq has a number of fixed-wing combat aircraft including F-16IQs, T-50s, Su-25s, and armed Cessna Caravans, as well an array of helicopter gunships that could have prosecuted targets in Syria. Others were tried in a court in Baghdad, which mainly deals with foreigners and women.

The raids were ordered by the premier "because of the danger they [terrorists] pose to Iraqi territory", the statement said.

It was not immediately clear how many, if any, of the death sentences had been already carried out.

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 global calls to end the death penalty.
