Irish court finds ex-soldier Lisa Smith guilty of joining Daesh

  • Judge Tony Hunt said that the prosecution had established beyond reasonable doubt that Lisa Smith had traveled to Syria ‘with her eyes open’ and pledged allegiance to Daesh
  • As Daesh lost ground to a US-led coalition on the battlefield and towns and cities under its sway fell, Smith was forced to flee Raqqa and then Baghouz, before returning to Ireland
