Qamishli (Syria) (AFP) - Kurdish fighters in northern Syria detained an alleged Italian member of the Islamic State group as he was trying to flee across the border to Turkey, they said Thursday.
The People's Protection Units (YPG) have captured several foreign IS fighters since the jihadists' so-called caliphate collapsed nearly a year ago.
"On August 27, a mercenary called Semir Bogana was captured as a result of a special operation conducted by our Anti-Terror Units, when he was trying to flee to Turkey," said the YPG.
It said Bogana -- an Italian citizen known also as Abu Hureyre al-Muhajir or Abu Abdullah al-Muhajir -- was responsible for weapons shipments to IS.
The YPG makes up the bulk of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a US-backed alliance of Kurds and Arabs that spearheaded the fight against IS.
The detained Italian was currently being interrogated and "his fate will be determined at the end of the investigation," an SDF source told AFP.

Note: Exposing the truth about Turkey's involvement with ISIS and al Qaeda Terrorists has caused a reaction. A letter to the Editor at the NYT by Mevlut Cavusoglu, Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs, was published as an Opinion. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/13/opinion/letters/turkey-syria.html And a similar letter was written by Erdogan himself and published in the WSJ. Deep State again protects the forces of evil.
” Abu Hureyre al-Muhajir”
Yeah that sounds like a real Italian name to me.
Abu Hureyre al-Muhajir
Thatsa one spicy meata ball.
That is not a typical Italian name.
“his fate will be determined at the end of the investigation,”
Hanging or firing squad?
I wish they’d do us all a favor and just kill these bastards.
The EU is going let them come back and give them a pension.
Trump is taking heat from the EU POLs and Press. They don’t want him to send them to GITMO.
One or the other. In Iraq they have done a lot of hanging. I suspect the Iranian influence is shown there.
A lot of ISIS women have been executed in Iraq. Again, think it is the influence of Iran.
The origin of the name may be India.
Not sure. Not common.
No indication he is native to Italy.
I don’t want Pres. Trump to send people like this to Gitmo, either. They need to be shot, or, better yet, boiled in bacon grease.
It is possible they have intelligence value. I’m not making that call blindly, but understand your feelings.
