    Claire Khacer moved to Syria in 2015 in order to marry a jihadist she met on Facebook, also bringing along her three children, ages 2,8 and 16 to the war-torn country, the BFMTV channel reported.

    According to BFMTV, Khacer was sentenced to seven years in prison on Friday by a Paris court.

    The woman married and divorced the Daesh officer Raqa Oumar Diaw in Syria. She was later arrested by Turkish authorities and subsequently deported back to France. The woman, who converted to Islam at age 17, stated she had considered Diaw to be a low-rank commander, adding that she never had a "political commitment," and always "condemned the jihadist attacks targeting France."
