Canadian Jihadist in Syria Likely Killed by Kurdish Forces
Mar 21, 2015 at 7:05 pm
***A researcher studying Canadian foreign fighters believes a Windsor, Ont. man turned jihadist has been killed in Syria.
Amarnath Amarasingam said Friday that Ahmad Waseem was likely killed two or three days ago by Kurdish forces in Tal Hamis in northeast Syria.
Mr. Amarasingam, a post-doctoral fellow at Dalhousie University who is in contact with 30 to 40 foreign fighters as part of his research project, says rumours circulated recently that someone going by the name of Abu Turab had been killed.
He said Friday that he sent a photograph of Mr. Waseem, who has previously identified himself on social media using that name, to two foreign fighters who are friends of his and they confirmed he had been killed.
Mr. Amarasingam said he also examined images on the website LiveLeak that purport to show the bodies of Islamic State fighters recently killed in an ambush. One of them bears a strong resemblance to Mr. Waseem.***
