A Syrian refugee was sentenced to 25 years in prison for killing the former commander of Deir Ezzor Military Council, Brigadier General Ismail Mulla Omair last year in Istanbul.

According to Turkish media, the Supreme Criminal Court recently convicted Abdul Qadir Khalil Mulla of killing his uncle on December 31, 2019. Turkish newspaper Sozcu reported that the sentence was reduced from life imprisonment in consideration of some mitigating circumstances.

According to the newspaper, the public prosecutor at the hearing held recently at the Supreme Criminal Court, said that although the defendant was charged with premeditated murder and torture, the incident occurring because of a family dispute and there was no solid proof of torture.

The 26-year-old defendant slaughtered his uncle in front of his 5-year-old son, but the court dismissed a life sentence on the basis that the accused lived in the victim’s house and thus it is more likely to be the result of a family dispute.

The murder of the dissident Brigadier General Ismail Mulla Omair received a lot of media attention at the end of 2019 due to accusations of the involvement of QASD and claims that the killer was recruited in its ranks during his stay in Qamishli before moving to Turkey.
