A German court sentenced a Syrian national to life in prison on Monday after he was found to have committed war crimes in his native country.

According to the official website of the Dusseldorf Court, the judge sentenced the Syrian  national, Ibrahim A. (AKA “Abu Dhib”), 43, to life in prison for the war crimes he committed during his stint as a militia commander in northern Syria.

“As a commander he used lawlessness resulting from chaos of the civil war and his de facto control of parts of Aleppo for criminal gains, plundering and kidnapping people whom he tortured or allowed to be tortured by his militiamen,” the statement read.

The Syrian national was accused of being a commander of a Free Syrian Army (FSA) group that wrecked havoc inside of the Aleppo province during the first years of the war.

Sputnik News reported that the convict amassed a fortune by claiming ransom, investigators found. He was arrested in Germany after a survivor recognized him.

The Syrian national insists that he is innocent and vows to fight the court’s latest decision.

This is the first of many FSA thugs who will be bought to account for their crimes I hope.

The White Helmets also should be arrested and tried for aiding international terrorism AND also for being appalling ‘actors’ 🙂
