Deir ez-Zor, Syria, May. 1, 2018. An official in the Deir ez-Zor military council of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said that they have not been contacted by any international body to extradite those responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States in 2001. Abu al-Islam, head of the intelligence office in the Council, said that after the office had arrested the Syrian-German, Mohammed Haider Zammar (nicknamed Abu Adel al-Halabi) over a month ago during the battle of Storm Island against the Islamic State in the villages of al-Tiyana, Darnaj, and al-Shanan in Deir ez-Zor, they handed him over to the General Security in the SDF. However, they did not receive any news from Western countries calling for his extradition. Abu al-Islam added that they arrested Zammar over six months ago, when they besieged his house and reasoned with him to surrender. Abu al-Islam stressed on the point during his investigation when he admitted that he was from the group that planned to carry out the attacks of Sept, 11. Zammar is from Aleppo, Syria, and migrated to Germany in his childhood, where he later obtained citizenship and began work for Mercedes. According to media reports, Zammar began his career with al-Qaeda in Hamburg and traveled to the al-Qaeda camp in Jalalabad, Afghanistan, for weapons and explosives training. Then he met with Osama bin Laden and returned to Hamburg to continue liaison with people such as Mohammed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi, Ramzi bin al-Shaiba, Munir al-Motassadeq and Said Bahji; all of whom participated in the attacks. Zammar was arrested in Morocco in 2001 through a joint operation between the Moroccan security and the Central Intelligence Agency, and was handed over to the Syrian government, and only released after the beginning of the Syrian revolution. The official in the SDF, Abu al-Islam, noted that Zammar was responsible for the popular additives used in the Islamic State. He also indicated that the Islamic State marginalized his role as a former leader in the base. The US Defense Department spokesman, Eric Bahon, stated two weeks ago that, “We can confirm that our partners in the SDF had arrested Mohammed Haidar Zammar, the German citizen who was born in Syria, as part of their ongoing campaign to roll back a fugitive in Syria. We are working for other details.
