Giuliano Delnevo, a 25-years-old Italian from Genova, died during the clashes between the Syrian rebels whom he was affiliated to and the troops of Bashar al-Assad.

According to the Italian media, this young man who was being investigated by the Italian justice due to his possible links to terrorist groups, died after having been severely wounded in the Syrian city of Quseir after a clash with forces loyal to the regime.

Delnevo, who had adopted the name of Ibrahim after having converted to Islam, had entered Syria via Turkey in 2012 in the company of Chechen fighters.

His body was identified thanks to the passport he was carrying in his pocket.

The president of the Arab community in Italy, Foad Aodi, declared that between 45 and 50 Italians have gone to Syria in order to fight in the side of the rebels, according to what Syrian sources told him.

Apart from this data, which was also reported by the Italian media, Aodi explained that there are three women who are helping “in various tasks”. One of them is Italian, another one is of Spanish origin, and the third is a Chechen. 

Foad also pointed out that some 600 people from all over Europe have gone to Syria in order to fight against the regime of Bashar al-Assad, among them a high number of Belgians.
