French judges on Friday November 23rd sentenced a French mother belonging to Isis to 14 years in prison, for taking her children to Syria in 2014 to join the terrorist group, AFP reported.

The 38-year old mother, Jihane Makhzoumi was arrested in 2016 at an airport in Paris when she returned along with her three children. Her partner, Eddy Leroux, who she left France with, along with his daughter, is believed to be killed in Syria.

Makhzoumi was convicted of terrorism and child abandonment. Her lawyer said they would appeal against the "totally disproportionate" verdict.
