Daesh ex-emir hiding among migrants en route to Europe arrested in Turkey

Turkish authorities have announced that they have arrested Kasir al-Haddawi, a relative of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and an ex-emir of ISIS in Deir ez-Zor, according to the Sunday Times. He reportedly tried to merge with Syrian refugees to reach Greece.

Kasir al-Haddawi, a former “emir” of Daesh in the province of Deir ez-Zor, now controlled by Syrian authorities , was captured on 27 April by security forces in the city of Izmir, according to Turkish authorities quoted by the British newspaper The Sunday Times .

He was reportedly arrested while hiding among a group of Syrian refugees who planned to embark on a boat to reach Greece. Three other members of ISIS have been arrested with him, according to Turkish media.

The Turkish authorities say that Kasir al-Haddawi is close to the head of the Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, whose death has been announced several times without being confirmed . The Turkish news agency Anadolu claims that Kasir al-Haddawi is responsible for the massacre of 700 civilians in Deir ez-Zor when he was acting as “emir” of the jihadist group.

The question of the exploitation of migrant flows to Europe by jihadist organizations has been a problem for European leaders for several years. As early as July 2016, German Chancellor Angela Merkel – who had decided in 2015 to host about a million migrants in her country – had said that the waves of migration were being exploited by terrorist groups to bring in some of their men. In fact, several attacks in Europe in recent years have been committed by individuals who have applied for asylum in countries where they have acted. This is the case of the perpetrators of the Berlin or Hamburg attacks , committed in December 2016 and July 2017 respectively. Another example: in June 2017, the Italian police arrested an Iraqi asylum seeker who was planning an attack.
