Perth-born ‘Dr Jihad’calls for attacks in the West and goads Trump in IS video

The Perth-born paediatrician who defected to Syria in 2015 has appeared in a new Islamic State propaganda video, carrying a machine gun in a dark tunnel under Raqqa and urging lone wolves to strike in Australia and the West.

Blue-eyed Tareq Kamleh, branded “Dr Jihad” by some Australian media, has not been seen for more than two years.

In an official IS video released only hours ago, Kamleh’s face is noticeably gaunt and he sports a long beard.
