American soldier joins Mujahideen in Syria

Publication time: 14 March 2013, 01:27

A former US soldier, 30-year-old Eric Harroun, a reservist of the U.S. army, became a Mujahideen fighter of Jabhat an-Nusrah - one of the largest group of Syrian Mujahideen who are fighting for the establishment of a Sharia state, reports Fox News.

 

Harroun, a native of Phoenix, Arizona, said he converted to Islam and now has become a Sunni Muslim. He considers "Israel" and Iran as enemies, and fully supports the fight of Syrian Muslims against the Russian-backed Alawite regime.

 

The American citizen also said that on arrival to Syria he had first fought in the ranks of an opposition l battalion sticking to secular beliefs, but in one of the battles, when almost all of his colleagues were killed, he joined the Jabhat an-Nusrah fighters who gave him the nickname "Amriki", or "The American".

 

Harroun said that during the clashes in Syria, he had personally killed several Assad's soldiers and Shabiha militants and an Iranian. 

 

In an interview to the TV channel, the American shrugged off a question about "fighting alongside Al Qaeda terrorists" stating that in this war, "the American government plays on both sides". However, he specified that he would never have caused harm to American soldiers, but did not say the same about the Jewish soldier thugs from so-called "Israel".

 

Harroun's father told that the US Army sent his son to the reserve after a serious injury in a car accident that occurred in 2003.

 

After the accident, he spent a long time in a hospital, where a part of his skull was replaced with a steel plate. The father added that he did not really understand what happened to his son, but remembered that after his discharge from the army, he was very depressed and he could not start a new life.

 

On the latest photos, posted on his personal page on Facebook, Harroun, however, does not look depressed, but instead, he always smiles and looks pleased with life. The same picture can be seen on a video, posted on YouTube.
