BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:05 P.M.) – The father of a Kosovar national that died in Syria is claiming his son was not killed fighting with jihadist groups, but rather, in a car accident inside the war-torn nation, Prishtina Insight reported today.
“The father denies that either of his sons were involved in fighting and that they went to Syria before the war started in 2011. He claims that the recently deceased son, Perparim, was not involved in fighting and that he moved to Syria after first moving to Germany seven years ago. According to the family, Perparim has not visited Kosovo since then,” the Kosovar daily reported.
“We received the news [of his death] from his mother-in-law who lives in Germany. According to the photos, our son has died in a traffic accident involving a motorbike,” claimed Sadri Delija, the father of the dead Kosovar national.
“I only found out later that he’s not living in Germany anymore. He wanted to live there, he was not killed in the war,” the father maintained, as quoted by Prishtina Insight.
“When he went to Syria, there was no war there, but this is the will of Allah, this was his destiny,” said Delija.
