AMMAN —AlGhad— The Court of State Security exonerated a Jordanians citizen charged with “promoting terrorism and recruiting militants to fight in Syria” yesterday, Wednesday, over a text he sent via WhatsApp, which turned out to be a “joke”.

The text encouraged people to “send their wives to fight in Syria, so that they will receive martyrdom and go to heaven, while the husbands enjoy peace of mind”, the complainant said.

In the meantime, other defendants were convicted of seven charges related to terrorism, sentenced to 2-4 years in prison.
