BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – A captured Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) terrorist from Germany sat down for an interview with the German language news site Welt Spiegel recently to discuss his participation in the Syrian conflict.
During the interview, the ISIS fighter, Farid Saal, acknowledges that he starred in a mass execution video of Syrian soldiers in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate in July 2014.
The captured ISIS fighter said that he posed with the executed Syrian Army soldiers because it would help his smuggling business that he was running inside the country.
He said his main job in Syria was to smuggle foreign fighters from Turkey to the Islamic State-held areas across the country.
Furthermore, he says that life in Raqqa city was pleasant, as he was able to relax by playing games, browsing the internet, and chatting with different fighters.
At the end of the interview, the Islamic State terrorist tells the reporter that he wants to go back to Germany, even if it means he will be imprisoned.
He concludes that he does not want to be imprisoned in Syria, but Germany has not agreed to any extradition terms, especially with non-state entities like the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
