PanARMENIAN – Armenia‘s National Security Service (NSS) on Wednesday, April 27 refuted the Combating Terrorism Center’s report on an Armenian citizen who had allegedly joined the Islamic State group during 2013 and 2014.
“According to some 2013-2015 media publications in Arabian news outlets and social media networks, a IS fighter namedYeghishe Karapetyan was killed during military operation in the suburbs of Aleppo,” the NSS told PanARMENIAN.Net
“Inspections revealed, however, that the information is a mere provocation and is completely false.”
1 Armenian citizen was among the estimated 15,000 new recruits who joined the Islamic State during 2013 and 2014, a report from the Combating Terrorism Center (CTC) said earlier.
