Kosovo police have arrested an ethnic Albanian suspected of trying to recruit fighters to go to Syria and Iraq and promoting “terrorist” activities in media social sites.




A statement on Tuesday said police searched the man’s house in a village in Hani i Elezit, 65 kilometers (40 miles) south of capital Pristina, where they found a pistol, a rifle and some electronic devices.


Police called on the people not to pay attention to such calls and deceit on involvement in terrorist activities.


A few hundred Kosovo-born volunteers have joined ISIS group in Syria and Iraq. They often appear on their propaganda videos warning of imminent attacks.


The operation, code-named Van Damme, was part of a wider one initiated from the Brescia court in nearby Italy.
