Syrian Man Who Posed With Severed Head Faces War Crimes Charges in Germany

A court in Germany’s city of Koblenz has charged a 33-year-old Syrian man with committing war crimes, Deutsche Welle reports, citing a statement by prosecutors. Authorities say there is solid evidence that the man fought with the Daesh* terrorist group for two years.

“The accused is suspected of joining armed resistance against the Syrian government in 2012 in the southern city of Dara’a.
