Former Nusra Member Sentenced to 3 Years in Prison in Germany

A trial of a Syrian refugee accused of membership in Al-Nusra terrorist group in Syria ended yesterday in Germany, the Associated Press reports.

A higher regional court in Stuttgart sentenced the 25-year-old man, whose name was not released, to three years in prison. The man is said to have been fighting for the extremist group in 2013-2014. In 2015, he arrived in Germany.

The refugee’s defense stated that he fought for Al-Nusra against ISIS but the court said that battling another terrorist group cannot be regarded as a justification.
