BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:55 P.M.) – A Swedish member of the so-called Islamic State of the Levant (ISIL) drove a vehicle filled with explosives into the Syrian Democratic Forces’ (SDF) defenses this week, the terrorist group’s official media wing claimed on July 26th.

Abu Farouq Al-Sweidi, a Swedish national, carried out the suicide attack against the SDF fighters south of Raqqa City, allegedly killing 11 military personnel in the process.

While the death toll is unknown, the Islamic State has confirmed via their official media wing that the man driving the vehicle into the SDF’s positions was in fact Abu Farouq Al-Sweidi.

Well, this doesn’t seem to be a picture of the attack. Because it mentions some Abu Ibrahim al-Halabi.

Also, I’d like to see a picture of this Abu Farouq to see how Swedish he really is.

Well done – Abu Farouq Al-Sweidi – hope all JIhadi die blowing themselves up.
