A Swedish court on Wednesday found a 35-year-old woman guilty of war crimes for posting photos of herself with her severed head that were displayed in a Syrian city in 2014.
Fatosh Ibrahim, who pleaded not guilty, was sentenced to three months in prison.
The Gothenburg district court said Fatosh Ibrahim “on two occasions published photographs of severed heads impaled on the fence” of a Raqqa roundabout, placed there by militants of the Islamic State group.
Ibrahim used her cell phone to take pictures of herself in Raqqa’s Naim Square – which means “Paradise” – where militants of the Islamic State group had displayed hanged bodies or heads.

The court said in its ruling that Ibrahim posted on Facebook “disparaging comments about the people in the photos and expressed that they deserved what they were subjected to.”
“The woman had clearly expressed her sympathy for the actions of the Islamic State group, and her actions were seen to be in connection with the armed conflict that was ongoing in the area at the time.”
Ibrahim told the court she traveled to Syria in December 2012 and was forced to stay, claiming she did not travel to Syria to join the Islamic State group. She returned to Sweden in 2017, according to the verdict.
Ibrahim was also convicted of threatening and defaming social workers in Sweden.
