PanARMENIAN.Net - One more Azeri mercenary has been killed in Syria, according to Azerbaijan Press Agency reports.

Mujahid aka Abdurrahman, who was a member of al Qaeda-linked Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), was killed by Free Syrian Army. He was reportedly from Sumgayit town and was a boxer.

The mujahid’s family is also in Syria, with his brother Suleyman fighting on the side of the Islamist rebels, APA says.

A group of Azerbaijani citizens went to Syria and fought among the radical groups. Nearly 100 Azerbaijanis have been killed in these fights. Photos of most of them have been posted on the social networks.
