JARABLUS – The Islamic State (ISIS) radical group arrested on Thursday two of its own jihadis in Syria’s northern Jarablus city before they cross into Turkey.
A Tunisian man and his Chechen wife, who had joined the ISIS ranks in Syria last year, were captured on the Turkish border while trying to desert the group and flee Syria.
Speaking to ARA News in Jarablus, media activist Nassir Taljbini said that the ISIS-led Islamic Police have been observing the movements of the jihadi couple, before arresting them on the Syria-Turkey border on Thursday.
“They were detained while trying to cross into Turkey in a bid to desert the group,” Taljbini reported, quoting an Islamic Police officer.
“The Tunisian jihadi has reportedly married the Chechen woman a few months ago after they met in Raqqa. They were transferred to Jarablus last month in order to serve as guards for an ISIS Emir (prince). There have been suspicions about their movements, but they were eventually arrested before leaving Syria,” the informed source told ARA News.
The jihadi couple has been referred to the Sharia Court for interrogations subsequent to their arrest on Thursday midnight.
The ISIS-led Sharia Court usually orders the beheading of any dissidents on charges of ‘high treason’.
