IS claims it killed Italian ‘crusader’ in Syria

Published on :

Baghuz (Syria), March 18 (IANS/AKI) The Islamic State jihadist group claimed on Monday it had slain an Italian “crusader” named Lorenzo Orsetti, during the battle by Kurdish forces to drive IS forces from its tiny enclave of Baghuz in eastern Syria.

IS posted photos of Orsetti’s corpse, his Italian national health service card and his credit card on a Twitter account used by the group with the words “crusader” written beneath.

Orsetti, a former chef who was in his early 30s, travelled to eastern Syria to fight for the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), who have been closing on Baghuz for several weeks as the five-year conflict against IS enters its final days.
