Iraq's Central Criminal Court issued the sentence after "it was proven they belong to ISIS terrorist group", Judge Abdul Sattar al-Beeraqdar, the High Judicial Council's spokesman, said in a statement.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed Monday that it was working on the release of Turkish citizens who are now being detained by Iraqi authorities.
The Iraqi Criminal Court yesterday sentenced 15 Turkish women to death for belonging to Daesh.
This sentencing follows after Iraq claimed victory over ISIS in Iraq and after several hundreds of women have been tried by the Iraqi court.
Thousands of foreigners have fought and died for IS in Iraq and Syria.
Human Rights Watch has argued that the sentences are "unfair", with some activists arguing that numerous women were tricked or coerced into joining the terrorist groups. Many of them were women who came, or were brought, from other countries to join the war.
Benitez rues missed chances as Newcastle lose two-goal lead
Bournemouth have not beaten Newcastle at home in the league since 1989, back in the old Division Two. Steve Cook scored a 92nd-minute victor in Bournemouth's 1-0 win at Newcastle in November.
"This also applies to foreign women (of Islamic State families) who committed such actions inside the Iraqi territories".
Last week, a Turkish woman was sentenced to death for membership in the terrorist organization.
On Thursday, the Iraqi authorities handed over four women and 27 children from IS families to Russian Federation, after being cleared of charges of involvement in terrorist operations against civilians or security forces, Iraqi Foreign Ministry said. One woman told the judge that she had actively taken part in the fighting.
Several rights groups have condemned Iraq's treatment of suspected militants, pointing to inhumane prison conditions and a judicial process which does adhere to worldwide standards.
Under Iraq's anti-terror laws, anyone found guilty of joining Isis, including non-combatants, can be given the death penalty.
Iraq declared victory in December over Daesh, which had seized control of almost a third of the country in 2014.
