An Indian national was reportedly killed in the Al-Raqqa Governorate this past week while fighting for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), as reported by Al-Masdar News.
The Islamic State terrorist was identified as Iman Na’im Tandil (Abu ‘Umar Al-Hindi), an Indian national that recently joined the Islamic State in Syria to combat the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) near Al-Raqqa.
During his brief “jihad” in Syria, Tandil participated in several clashes with the Syrian Democratic Forces west of Al-Raqqa City, Al-Masdar News said.
Tandil was eventually killed when the Syrian Democratic Forces attacked the Islamic State’s positions west of the Tabaqa Dam in the Al-Raqqa Governorate.
The ISIS official media wing paid tribute to Tandil in a Telegram statement, confirming his death during clashes with the Syrian Democratic Forces.
