A German ISIS bride who let a five-year-old Yazidi slave girl die of thirst in the broiling desert sun has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Jennifer Wenisch, 30, was sentenced in a Munich court on Monday after being found guilty of “two crimes against humanity in the form of enslavement” in addition to aiding and abetting the girl’s “agonizing” death.

She was also convicted of being part of a terrorist organization.

According to the Daily Mail, Wenisch converted to Islam in 2013 and journeyed to Iraq to join the blood-thirsty death cult.

There, she and her terrorist hubby bought a Yazidi woman and her child to be their household slaves.

“After the girl fell ill and wet her mattress, the husband of the accused chained her up outside as punishment and let the child die an agonizing death of thirst in the scorching heat,” prosecutors said.

“The accused allowed her husband to do so and did nothing to save the girl.”

The newspaper said that Wenisch’s conviction is one of the first in the world related to ISIS’s brutal campaign against the Yazidi.

Judge Reinhold Baier said the child was “defenceless.” Wenisch, he reasoned, must have known from the start that the little girl was in “danger of dying.”

Her hubby, Taha al-Jumailly, is being tried separately in Frankfurt.

Wenisch said only that her failure to save the child was due to the fact she was “afraid.”

The child was only identified as Nora. Her mother testified about the horrors visited upon Nora and herself.

At the end of the trial, Wenisch moaned she was “(being) made an example of for everything that has happened under ISIS.” But she was a bit more than that.

She was a fanatic member of Islamic State’s hisbah morality police. Armed with an AK-47 assault rifle, a pistol and an explosives vest, Wenisch was an enforcer of dress codes, public behaviour and the bans on alcohol and tobacco.

Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney was part of the legal team representing the Yazidi girl’s mother. Clooney and others want what ISIS did to the Yazidis categorized as a genocide.
