A court in Baghdad has sentenced a German woman to death after she confirms she had travelled from Germany to Iraqi for the sole purpose of joining ISIS with her two daughters.

The court said the unnamed German woman was "providing logistical support and assistance to the terrorist group to commit crimes" after she joined ISIS, and her two daughters reportedly married ISIS militants. The woman of Moroccan descent was believed to be living in the Manheim region before she travelled, and believed to be part of the women that were captured by the Iraqi forces after the forces regained Mosul from the Daesh group.

ISIS Preacher, Abu Kazem al-Maqdisi then call on its members to attack Hamas houses and courthouses in the Gaza strip.

                      

Hamas is also accused by the ISIS propaganda video of working with Western countries and only fighting Jews in Israel. The accused, Musa Abu Zamat, was later shot point blank in the head.

Hamas has called for a new uprising against Israel after Trump's announcement.The uprising against Israel starts massive revolts, but Israel were able to face it using live ammunition, rubber bullets and tear gas to end the recent massive unrest.

Hamas spokesperson, Salah Bardawil responded to the ISIS Of ISIS and said its "a Zionist production in which Arab tools participate to distort the resistance."

ISIS might be on the way out of the terrorism list as the group continues to suffers a series of defeats in Iraq. ISIS fighters now for fear of being killed surrendered themselves to the Iraqi security forces, and they are all awaiting interrogations.

More than 1000 ISIS fighters who had pledged to die a martyr, are not forfeiting the dream of the 71 virgins and are currently having their hands behind their back while facing the wall in Northern Iraq. The group has recently suffered a series of humiliating defeats in Syria and Iraq, and more than 1000 ISIS fighters have surrendered in the DIbis centre for iinterrogation.

                         

                                                      ISIS fighters surrenders to Kurdish security operatives

While the fight to take back Mosul took soldiers 9 months,and only a few fighters surrendered, Tal-Afar was just 11 days, and more than 500 fighters surrendered. The extremist were ousted from Hawija in just 15 days, and the ISIS fighters did not put in any fight at all, they only planted bombs and booby traps, and after heavy fighting, the group members took their family members and ran.

Many fighters are claiming to be just cooks and clerks for the group, while some claimed to have just joined the group in the past 2 months. Many of the fighters claimed never to have seen a beheading or anything close to it.

In a monitored interview, one of the fighters ,Maytham Muhammed Mohemin said that he had joined the group because he believed their cause, and because his brother had joined. He also said he was getting paid a $100, which is better than nothing at the time.

Maytham had been fighting with the group for 2 years. He had arrived Dibis at Tuesday afternoon with eight other people, after they had gone to Hawija to drop their weapons. Two weeks before that, Maytham had been hiding in holes to escape the never ending American bombs and shelling of the Iraqi forces, and while hiding in holes, the group had no food or sanitary facilities, hence, they stink.

As ISIS continues to lose the battle with US backed led army, the morale of the terrorist organisation is terribly dropping, and the leader of the faction, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who was reportedly dead before is alive and preparing a wave of attacks against countries like the United Kingdom to boost its members' morale.

                 

The head of Kurdish intelligence Lahur Talabany while speaking to Telegraph said;

We are going to see a lot more attacks on the West that are designed to boost the morale of the fighters who have suffered heavy losses. They are trying to do attacks that will get them publicity.The more sophisticated attacks are being organised by the leadership around the al-Baghdadi camp.

France is still on high alert against terrorist activities in the country after a string of attacks in the country since the Paris attack in 2015, and also UK is also on high alert following the Westminster, Manchester and London Bridge attacks. 

The terrorist group in recent Western backed fight has lost 90% of its territory in Iraq and 85% of its territory in Syria.

Speaking on the recent development, British diplomat Julian King said;

We need to continue our efforts to try and stop that but there will be some funding that gets out. And we have to be conscious of that. That there could be a risk of new sources of funding for terrorism and we have to prepare for that and see what we need to do to strengthen measures to combat it.

Countries that had been hit with attacks from the Daesh group includes Spain, France,Britain, Belgium and Germany.

Abu Qutaiba, one of ISIS’ Friday prayer leaders will not be meeting his 72 virgins after the group burnt him alive for slightly confirming the death of the ISIS group leader, Al-Baghdadi. He was burnt July 2 in Tal Afar.

Abu was unfortunate during his Friday sermons, and burst into tears after mentioning the ISIS leader name, hinting that the man himself is dead.

                  

According to a local who spoke to Alsumaria News TV confirmed the news that Abu was later arrested after his sermon, and he was executed. He went on to recite verse from the Quran that is said for the deceased during his speech, raising a lot of questions from the group members.

Sources close to ISIS and the terrorist group are yet to say anything about Al-Baghdadi's death after Russia claimed to have killed him in an airstrike.

Donald Trump leaked a classified Intel about ISIS to the Russians when Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyakvisited visited the White House. According to New York times, Donald Trump told the Russians some classified information that was obtained by Israel after it hacked into a ISIS cell of bombmakers based in Syria.

                 

According to a U.S official, the Intel that was gathered allowed the U.S to learn that ISIS was working on explosives that could fool airport security by passing as a laptop battery. The information prompted a ban of laptops from all Muslim countries coming to the United States and Britain.

The information was classified, and was shared by Israel to the United States, and was not supposed to be shared around, but Donald Trump leaked this information when the Russian diplomats came to the White House, which could then be leaked to Iran.

There has been close working relationship between the U.S and Israeli intelligence agencies, allowing for sharing of information, including the disclosure of sources and methods. The cooperation had yielded great result including the disruption of Iran nuclear program.

The American officials under former President Obama warned the Israeli intelligence to be careful of the information they shared with Donald Trump.

The Scottish Football Association will also set up barricade to the stadium that will allow only people with tickets to go inside the stadium. Also the police will be looking to search more than 50,000 people, but it is not sure yet if Bollards will be installed around the arena to stop potentially dangerous vehicles from plowing into the crowds.

Speaking on the safety of the fans in the clash, British transport police chief John McBridge said that there will be "zero tolerance" approach towards any anti-social or criminal behaviour.

The Hampden Park safety officer Brian Muir while speaking to Sky News also said;
