For the first time in Germany, an ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) member has been sentenced to life imprisonment for the genocide of the Yezidis. Yazidi journalist Dusen Tekkal, who initially followed the case, said: “This court proves that a person who committed genocide cannot be in a freedom”. 

The Frankfurt Supreme Court has sentenced ISIS member Al-Jumaili to life imprisonment for “genocide” and “crimes against humanity.”

 Iraqi citizen Taha al-Jumaili is the first ISIS member to be convicted in Germany on acusation of genocide against the Yezidis. 

We recall on the fact that on August 3, 2014, the ISIS, which attacked Shengal, destroyed thousands of Yezidis, thousands of abducted, sold Yezidi women and children in slave markets. The fate of about 3,000 abducted Yezidis is still unknown. The genocide against the Yezidis has not yet been recognized by the UN Security Council or the International Court of Justice.
