The Special Criminal Court is looking into the case of five female alleged terrorists (four Saudis and one Yemeni) who formed a  group and tried to recruit and lure a number of women.

One of them was preparing to send her sons to participate in the fighting in Afghanistan.

She also sent her 12-year-old daughter, a minor, to get married to one of the Al-Qaeda terrorists there.

These female terrorists allegedly used to get support and guidance from the commanders and members of the terrorist organization in Yemen and Afghanistan.

When the security authorities countered the plans and activities of these terrorist women, Al-Qaeda in Yemen committed a serious crime by kidnapping the Saudi Deputy Consul General in Aden, Abdullah Muhammad Al-Khalidi, in 2012.

Several days after the abduction, the Kingdom’s embassy in Sana’a received a telephone call from Mishal Muhammad Rasheed Al-Shadoukhi, one of the wanted terrorists, who demanded the release of the five women.

During his telephone call to the Saudi ambassador, the terrorist Al-Shadoukhi gave the names of these women and sought their custody.
