Tall Birak: Recruit killed by IS sharpshooters

KURDWATCH, April 13, 2015—On March 27, 2015, the Syrian Army informed the family of the recruit Usama Husayn Ismaʿil (b. 1993 in al‑Qamishli, married) of his death. He was allegedly killed by an Islamic State (IS) sharpshooter near Tall Birak. Ismaʿil was drafted by the Syrian Army about six months ago after he was deported from Iraqi-Kurdistan. According to information obtained by KurdWatch, he was refused residence there because he could not prove his identity.
