Revealed: Chilling ISIS recruitment video features 20-year-old medical student from Cardiff as his family say they are heartbroken that he and 17-year-old brother have gone to fight in Syria
A young British jihadist who featured in a chilling recruitment video urging Muslims to join them in Iraq and Syria have been revealed to be a 20-year-old medical student from Cardiff.
Nasser Muthana can be seen in the footage wearing a white turban and is labelled in the video as ’Brother Abu Muthanna Yemeni from Britain’.
His heartbroken family from the Cardiff area told ITV News that his 17-year-old brother Aseel Muthana is with him too and that the pair went to Syria because ’they feel guilty’ about the country.
ITV News has also been told that police visited the family two weeks ago and that is when they found out the brothers had gone.
The video - which is titled ’There is No Life Without Jihad’ - appears to have been professionally edited, and was published on YouTube by ISIS’ Al Hayat Media Center.
Among those speaking on the video are men identifying themselves as Abu Muthana Al Yemeni, and Abu Bara’ Al Hindi - both of whom claim to have travelled to the Middle East from Britain.
Another man, Abu Dujana Al Hindi, also says he is from Britain - with all three speaking in clear English accents.
The footage is intersected with sections of music and religious chanting, as the men instruct viewers to leave their lives in the West behind and join ISIS’ brutal campaign in Iraq and Syria.
The men appear to be sat in a lush grove while they speak - the greenery juxtaposing the terror, death and brutality the militant group has brought to parts of Syria and Iraq in recent weeks.
