Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s Wife Sentenced to Death for IS Crimes

ERBIL — The Karkh Criminal Court in Baghdad has issued a death sentence for Asmaa Mohammed, the wife of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the founder and self-proclaimed caliph of the Islamic State (IS).

Asmaa Mohammed was convicted on Wednesday for her role in the torture and imprisonment of Yezidi girls and women at her residence. 

The court cited provisions from Counter-Terrorism Law No. 13 of 2005 and Yezidi Survivors Law No. 8 of 2021 in its decision.

In a previous interview, al-Baghdadi’s first wife, Asmaa Mohammed, disclosed that he and other IS leaders had a disturbing fixation on women. 

She revealed that she was married to al-Baghdadi in 1999 and witnessed his ownership of more than 10 Yazidi women as “slaves,” noting that he had also married a 13-year-old girl at one point.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in October 2019 during a US military operation in northwestern Syria. 

His death came approximately five years after he declared an Islamic “caliphate,” which subjected much of Iraq and Syria to brutal rule by IS fighters. 

Despite territorial losses in 2017 (Iraq) and 2019 (Syria), remnants of the group persist in launching attacks on civilians and security forces in both nations.
