ISIS Executes German Kickboxing Champ After He Tries to Flee Caliphate
Two-time world Thai kickboxing champion Valdet Gashi was reportedly executed by ISIS after trying to flee the Caliphate.
The IBTimes reported:
Two-time world champion in Thai kickboxing, Valdet Gashi, who had left his family in Germany to join the Islamic State was killed by Isis for attempting to run away from Syria.
Reports of Gashi’s death had emerged a few weeks ago, after his family told a Swiss TV channel that he had died in Syria, though the reason of his death was not clear.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a monitoring group that highlights Isis activities in Syria, has said that Valdet Gashi was arrested while trying to flee from Aleppo in Syria with ‘another group’.
The Thai kickboxing champion was then jailed in the city of Manbej in Syria and later killed by Isis, the monitoring group said, citing ‘reliable sources’.
