Baku: The Azerbaijani killed in Syria has been identified.

Thorough investigations revealed that the Azerbaijani allegedly killed near Aleppo in Syria is Sumgayit resident Elmeddin Guliyev, law enforcement bodies told APA. He graduated from Azerbaijan State University of Economics.

When the situation in Syria turned tense, he went to this country, joining the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant to fight against the government forces.

According to APA information acquired from Azerbaijanis fighting in Syria, Guliyev had previously fought against coalition troops in Afghanistan, and has gone to Syria after the situation aggravated in this country. He has long been the emir of the fighters in Homs. He is even reported to have shot down a fighter aircraft of the government forces during the battles around Homs. That is the reason government forces put a price on his head.

Elmeddin Guliyev is said to be fluent at the German and English.
