Reda Hame is a computer technician who travelled to Syria to join the Islamic State and trained to fight under the ringleader of the 2015 Paris attacks.
Hame was convicted of taking part in a criminal conspiracy aimed at harming people, received weapons training and a mission from Abdelhamid Abaaoud during his eight-day stay in Syria in the summer of 2015.
Abaaoud taught him how to fire an Kalashnikov assault rifle and handle a grenade. Also, Hame got injured with a stun grenade. He then dropped him off at the Turkish border with orders to return home and carry out an attack on behalf of the Islamic State.
Hame told investigators that Abaaoud, who was killed in a shootout with French police after the Paris attacks, asked him if he would be prepared to shoot into a crowd, such as at a rock concert.
Hame described himself as an Islamic State deserter, told the court he only pretended to accept his mission to escape the horrors of the Syrian war and regretted enlisting with the extremist group.
In sentencing Hame to 12 years in jail, the court “showed clemency,” said his lawyer, Archibald Celeyron. The Prosecutors sought a 20-year term for Hame.
