Jordan court sentences man to 15 years over terror plot

Jordan's Court of Cassation has upheld a July State Security Court ruling sentencing a man to 15 years in prison after convicting him of attempting to join terror groups and plotting attacks against security officers in 2017, The Jordan Times reported Wednesday (September 11th).

The court declared the defendant, who is an "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria" (ISIS) supporter, guilty of threatening to conduct terror attacks against security officers and manufacturing explosives, and handed him the maximum sentence.

Court papers said the defendant had been a follower of ISIS since 2014.
