The terrorist Abu Osama, arrested with his wife, is considered one of the most dangerous terrorists in ISIS ranks and as he had a role in launching the terrorist attacks that hit Paris in November 2015, and also took part in the attacks that hit Nice city in 14 July, 2016.
Adrian Kayali / Abu Osama is from French origin, was born in 1983, and converted to Islam in 2003, influenced by jihadist ideology. He was arrested in France in 2010 on charges of belonging to a terrorist organization and later he was released. Then he joined ISIS ranks and crossed to Syria on the 6th of March, 2015 through Tal Abyad border gate which was considered the official border between Turkey and ISIS.
