Confession of ex British police cadet who was ISIS fighter for five years
London, April 1, 2019 (AltAfrica)-Fifty British nationals who were senior ISIS fighters have been captured after the fall of the terror caliphate
They were among the last remaining jihadists who battled to the last and refused to surrender even when it was apparently clear that the terror group faces complete defeat
The end of the Islamic State group’s so-called caliphate was announced less than a week ago – and now, the first British fighters who stayed until the very end are resurfacing.
The BBC’s Quentin Sommerville spoke to a former police cadet from west London, Hamza Parvez, who spent five years with the extremists.
He once marched for the Queen, and is now in Kurdish custody in Syria.
He’s one of a growing number of men who have emerged after joining IS – most have been stripped of their British citizenship.
