The Public Relations Department of Ministry of Interior has denied rumors being spread on the social media about the arrest of a Bedoun man in Jahra over suspicions of him being a member of DAESH group. According to the rumors, securitymen found a video clip with the suspect in which he is seen participating in the beheading of victims, reports Arab Times.
The department affirmed that the rumors are baseless and false, urging ‘Twitter’ users to verify information before posting them on their accounts. It added that the ministry officials are available to answer queries regarding such controversial issues and provide proper clarification.
Earlier, Al-Watan Arabic daily has reported as saying securitymen from the Criminal Investigations Department have arrested a Syrian citizen who fought for the Islamic State militants in Syria where he was involved in beheadings.
A security source added security authorities were notified about the presence of a DAESH member who resided in Jahra and traveled back and forth to Syria frequently. He is said to have invited young people to support the ideas of the terrorist organization and advocated that beheading is the only means of establishing an Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, and thereafter expanding to some Gulf countries.
Meanwhile, Canadian media has said the Canadian fighter jets scheduled to participate in the strikes against the Islamic state organization (DAESH) have taken their positions in Kuwait to launch the operation within days, the daily added. Canadian sources revealed the air strikes against DAESH will only be in Iraq, without including targets in Syria, pointing out that the troops will be stationed at Camp “Arifjan” and another camp which is undecided until now.
Meanwhile, the United Nations said in a report published by the British newspaper the Guardian that about 15 thousand foreigners from 80 countries went to Syria and Iraq over the past years to fight in the ranks of organizations such as ISIS. He attributed the high number to the declining activities of al- Qaeda.
The United Nations in its report also said “the number of foreign jihadists in Syria and Iraq has increased since 2010 compared to the number of foreign fighters counted from 1990 until 2010, indicating the foreign terrorist fighters came from France, Russia, Britain and many other countries—80 in number”.
