French ISIS Terrorist Likely Involved in Kassig Beheading
The French Interior Ministry on Monday admitted there is a “very strong probability” that one of the ISIS terrorists who committed the beheading of US aid worker Peter Kassig and at least 18 Syrian soldiers is a French citizen.
“There is a very strong probability that a French citizen was directly involved in these despicable crimes,” French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said.
He noted that after analyzing video of the beheadings that was released this weekend, French intelligence services identified the ISIS terrorist as 22-year-old Maxime Hauchard of Normandy in northwestern France, reports AFP.
Hauchard “left for Syria in August 2013 after a short stay in Mauritania in 2012,” Cazeneuve added. Over 1,000 French citizens have reportedly left to join ISIS.
An intelligence source told the French news agency that agents are now working to verify whether a second French citizen also took part in the beheadings.
