Muslim who used Britain as a base to recruit new jihadis, raise cash and tip off military commanders is jailed for six years

An ISIS secret agent has been jailed for six years after using Britain as a base to tip off military commanders, raise money and recruit new fighters.

Awat Hamasalih, 35, was jailed for six years after he was found guilty of the unusual charge of membership of a terrorist organisation.

Hamasalih, from Kingstanding in the West Midlands, had claimed to be ‘an enthusiast who is proud to be British’ and denied he supported the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
