A Paris court sentenced three supporters of the jihadist militia Islamic State (IS) to 25 and 30 years imprisonment on Monday after a failed terrorist attack near the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. In September 2016, the women had unsuccessfully tried to detonate a car bomb in front of several restaurants near the cathedral.

Two accomplices were sentenced to 20 years each. One of the women had stabbed a plainclothes cop. Another woman was sentenced to five years in prison.

The prosecution described the defendants at the age of 22 to 42 years as a terror commandos of young women who were fully receptive to the deadly ideology of the Islamic State. The women then followed instructions from the now-killed French IS member Rachid Kassim, who is considered the mastermind of attacks in France.

Women now sentenced to 25 and 30 years imprisonment reportedly parked a Peugeot 607 on the night of the 3rd to the 4th of September 2016 near Notre-Dame Cathedral, which was loaded with six gas cylinders. According to one of the accused, they soaked the car with diesel and threw a burning cigarette in the car. However, an explosion did not happen because diesel do not as easily ignited as gasoline.

Only the choice of the wrong fuel had failed the plan, it says in the investigator files. Otherwise, a “bloodbath” would have threatened. One of the women, Ines Madani, had already been sentenced to eight years in prison in April for recruiting Islamic State fighters and calling for attacks in France and Belgium.

The Belgian authorities announced in September that the system of registration of passengers known as PNR (Passenger Name Record), implemented in the country since the first month of 2018, the security services have helped arrest and track down 94 terrorists and suspects in various crimes.
