Rebels kill former resident in Germany who returned back to fight with Assad

Former resident in Germany has been killed by rebels in northern Idlib province, sources told Zaman al-Wasl Tuesday.

Abdul Rahaman Jallad, 22, was killed along with 20 militants when rebels launched a surprise attack on Tel Msaitef in eastern Idlib region, sources said.

 Mother of the slain militant has blamed the German immigration law, saying it lacks fairness.

Jallad failed to bring his wife to Germany due to restrictions imposed on 'family reunifications.' Because of that he returned to Syria, the mother told Zaman al-Wasl.

The former resident in Germany had obtained a subsidiary protection status (two years). Usually, Germany granted the Status Syrians who fled the civil war but they couldn't prove that they were personally persecuted.

Jallad’s subsidiary protection status issued on July 16, 2017 and expired on June 18, 2019.

 Jallad was operating in Liwa al-Quds, pro-Assad Palestinian militia, one of Russia’s favourite militia groups inside Syria where its fighters get direct aid and military training by Moscow.

Most of Idlib province and parts of Aleppo province are still controlled by factions opposed to the regime of Bashar al-Assad. 
The regime attack comes despite a ceasefire announced by Russia earlier this month that never really took hold.

Idlib province alone is home to at least three million people, many of whom are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance.

According to the UN humanitarian coordination agency OCHA, almost 350,000 people have fled their homes since December 1, mainly heading northwards from southern Idlib, which has borne the brunt of the air strikes, according to AFP.

The International Rescue Committee has warned that an additional 650,000 people, the majority of them children and women, could be forced from their homes if the violence continues
