Abu Hamza al-Belgiki (the Belgian) who carried out attacks in Paris in November 2015 started off as a thief and was later recruited for ISIS by a Tunisian drug dealer after they met in prison in the Belgian city of Liège.
Abu Hamza, or Tarek Jadaoun, is a Belgian citizen who’s originally from Morocco. Iraqi army forces arrested him while liberating the right coast of Mosul. In his confessions exclusively on Al Arabiya, the captured ISIS militant speaks about the extremist group he joined, jihad against the infidels and the importance of immigrating to Syria and Iraq to participate in supporting the organization and religion.
