Israeli Arab mother of 5 sentenced to 22 months for trying to join ISIS

The Haifa District court sentenced an Israeli Arab mother of 5, from the northern town of Shfaram, to 22 months in prison for attempting to join ISIS in Syria on Tuesday.

Iman Kanjo confessed to forging links with an ISIS supporter on Facebook, and seeking to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State. She was captured in Turkey by security forces during an attempt to cross the Syrian border, and was subsequently deported to Israel.

Kanjo and state prosecutors reached a plea bargain. She has been in Israeli custody since August 2015.
