Going boom: Ukrainian soldier turned jihadi blows himself up during IED planting

In the Syrian province of Aleppo, a militant of the Hayat Tahrir ash-Sham terrorist group  with the call sign Al-Takbir withdrew himself during the installation of an explosive device.

This is reported by local sources.

As it turned out, about a year ago a fighter, whose real name was Daniil Lyashuk, arrived in Syria from Ukraine, where he participated in a punitive operation against the civilian population of Donbass as part of the Tornado battalion. Then, in 2014-2015, the gunman noted the atrocities, and he continued them in the Middle East, becoming known for his ruthless attitude to the prisoners.

As previously reported by News Front, Ukraine has repeatedly become the place of recruitment of militants into the ranks of terrorist groups operating in Syria. Only in June, militants from the nationalist battalion “Crimea”, which are already in gangs in the SAR, were spotted in the city of Dnepr , where they negotiated with “colleagues” from the punitive regiment “Dnepr-1”.
