Former spy of the Islamic State reveals workings of the terrorist group

Under the pseudonym Abu Khaled, the former intelligence agent tells it all to The Daily Beast, and admits having trained two Frenchmen, who participated in the Paris attacks. The most powerful in ISIS are «old Saddam spies», and Khaled accuses Turkey of complicity.

«When you join ISIS, during classes, they ask who is going to be a martyr?” Those who raise their hands «go to another group.” Journalist Michael Weiss interviews this former commander of ISIS, who recounts the contrast between » the state of well-being » and public tortures like «the square’s cage of fear.» Abu Khaled has returned to Aleppo to fight against Assad and ISIS, with an ally battalion of the Islamists of Ahrar al- Sham.
