Germany continue to pay welfare for a year to ISIS jihadi fighting in Syria

Since Eduard A. and his wife left Wolfsburg for Syria in the autumn of 2014 they cashed in nearly 20,000 euros worth of benefits – unemployment money, child support and care allowances.

Ethnic Russians Eduard A., 29, and his wife, 34, departed with their twin children for the front lines of the savage Islamic State war despite being on a watch list by authorities who suspected them of plotting a domestic act of terror.
