KUWAIT CITY, Nov 26: The Court of Cassation has sentenced five individuals, who are accused of financing the banned organization “ISIS” and buying weapons with the money donated to help the Syrian people, to imprisonment of various terms, reports Al-Qabas daily. The court sentenced a Lebanese defendant to 15 years in prison, and two other expatriates and a Kuwaiti citizen to ten-year imprisonment after convicting them of supplying missiles and weapons to ISIS.
