Suspected 9/11 recruiter for Al Qaeda captured in Syria

Mohammed Haydar Zammar

"He was captured more than a month ago by SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces) partners as part of their ongoing operations to defeat ISIS inside Syria", the Kurdish Peoples' Protection Units (YPG) commander, requesting anonymity confirmed on Thursday.

The jihadist is known for allegedly helping plan the September 11, 2001, attacks within the USA, including recruiting a few of the hijackers to the terror group.

A senior Kurdish commander told AFP the previous day that Zammar had been detained "and is now being interrogated".

The report also noted that Zammar was "a well-known figure in the Muslim community (and to German and USA intelligence agencies by the late 1990s)" and noted that he "fought in Afghanistan and relished any opportunity to extol the virtues of violent jihad".

According to the report, Zammar took credit for influencing people linked to the attacks including Mohammed Atta, who hijacked an American Airlines plane and flew it into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

He was later handed to Syrian authorities who, in 2007, sentenced him to 12 years in prison for being a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, according to German state broadcaster Deutsche Welle.

Al-Qaeda operated a branch in Syria known as Al-Nusra Front, but the affiliate has since claimed to have broken off ties.

The SDF, a coalition of Arab and Kurdish fighters, has caught several foreign members of IS in Syria in recent months, particularly since it captured the northern city of Raqa from the jihadists.

The BBC reported that a commander of the USA -backed Syrian Democratic Forces alliance did not say whether Zammar was suspected of fighting for the Islamic State. Zammar, among many others, is believed to have joined the Islamic State group.
