The Syrian refugee who was tripped by a Hungarian camerawoman was a member of the Qaeda-linked terror group of al-Nusra Front and had fought Kurds in Syria, the Democratic Union Party (PYD) has claimed.
Recently, footage went viral showing Osama Abdul Mohsen kicked and tripped over by a Hungarian journalist while running across the border from Hungary to Serbia along with his eight-year-old son.
The incident received international outrage and came all out in support of Mohsen. The journalist has been fired, while Mohsen has been invited to live in Spain by a football academy where he has also been offered a job.
However, Mohsen, who was a football coach back in Syria, was also a member of the radical al-Nusra front and he also fought the Kurds, the PYD alleged.
In an official statement, the PYD alleged that Mohsen was also involved in a violent suppression during a riot in Qamishlo, following a match, in which more than 50 Kurds were killed in 2004.
PYD, which released an official statement on the issue, alleged that Mohsen was also involved in a violent suppression during a riot in Qamishlo, following a football match, in which more than 50 Kurds were killed, in 2004.
He, who was the coatch of al-Fatwa club in Der Ez Zor from 2004 to 2010, instigated the violence after the football match between al-Fatwa and Qamishlo’s Jihad club, Rudaw reported citing PYD.
PYD says it has photos of Mohsen taken from his Facebook that prove his affiliation with Nusra. It also says that Muhsen had fought Kurds near Amudeh, Sekeraniye, and Afrin.
