Tehran’s Public Prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi announced several females have been jailed and sentenced to prison terms for joining the ISIL terrorist group in Syria.

“We have jailed 16 women and ordered them to turn over more than three billion rials (about $72,000), which they had received from Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group,” Jafari Dolatabadi said.

Tehran’s prosecutor general said that the women had gone to Syria to join and support the ISIL and had received training to carry out terrorist acts, adding, “They also conducted some operations there.”

This is not the first time that Iran’s security forces arrest members of the Takfiri terrorist outfit.

A division of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said in January that it had arrested a number of ISIL terrorists in the west of the country.

Following intelligence activities, the IRGC Ground Forces’ Najaf Base engaged in clashes with 21 members of the ISIL terrorist group, who had entered the country through its western borders.

In relevant remarks earlier, Commander of the IRGC Ground Forces Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour said that 16 Daesh terrorists were arrested during the operation while a number of them were killed.

In June 2017, Iranian security forces also arrested a number of terrorists linked to the ISIL before they could carry out any act of terror in the country’s religious cities.

According to a statement by Iran’s Intelligence Ministry, Iranian security forces managed to identify and arrest the Daesh-linked terrorists, who were planning to carry out terrorist acts in provinces deep in the country as well as religious cities.
