COMING ATTRACTIONS? Top ISIS Security Chief Masquerading as an Asylum-Seeker Arrested in the Netherlands; Dutch Police Arrest Alleged IS Security Chief for War Crimes

Top ISIS Security Chief Masquerading As An Asylum-Seeker Arrested In The Netherlands:
The Syrian national, who has not been identified, faces allegations he led the terror group’s security services before fleeing to Europe to claim refuge..
A Syrian asylum seeker was arrested in the Netherlands on Tuesday on suspicion of acting as one of the Islamic State’s top security chiefs during the terror cell’s infamous rise to power in the Middle East.
The 37-year-old man was arrested in the village of Arkel, approximately 40 kilometers east of Rotterdam, where he had resided since entering the Netherlands and claiming asylum back in 2019.
The suspect is believed to have been in a senior position in the security services of both the Islamic State and, prior to this, Jabhat al-Nusra, another proscribed Salafist jihadist terror group, according to the Dutch Public Prosecution Service (OM).
“It is suspected that from his position at IS, he also contributed to war crimes that the organization committed in Syria,” the Dutch public prosecutor said in a statement.

“Before that, he supposedly held the same position for two years at another terrorist organization: Jabhat al-Nusra. He is said to have held both positions in and around the Yarmouk refugee camp in the south of the Syrian capital Damascus,” OM added.
