Austria: Two Syrian “Refugee” Brothers Arrested – Fought For Rival Jihadi Groups

Two young Syrian brothers have been arrested in a refugee camp in southern Austria on suspicion of belonging to rival terrorist groups, prosecutors said Wednesday.

While the younger brother is accused of belonging to the Islamic State (ISIS) group, his older sibling is thought to have fought for the Ahrar al-Sham militia, the office added.

The pair allegedly fought on opposite sides during the Syrian civil war, which has so far claimed more 250,000 lives and forced millions to flee their homes since it broke out in March 2011.
