Injured ISIS Fighter Returns to Sweden for Free Health Care to Keep Fighting in Syria
Islamic State terrorist gets Swedish medical treatment before returning to Syria to fight
A terrorist, who was injured while fighting for ISIS in Syria, returned to Sweden - where he previously lived as an asylum seeker - to receive free medical care for his injuries, before returning to fight for the Islamic State once he had recovered.
The liberal Swedish government allowed ISIS fighter Khaled Shahadeh to return to the country to receive taxpayer-funded medical treatment for an injury he received while fighting for the terror group in Syria.
Authorities then allowed him to reconvene with the Islamic terrorist organization to continue fighting in Syria.
Self-confessed terrorist Shahadeh, a former resident of Gothenburg, has reportedly boasted about receiving state-funded health care from Sweden after he was badly wounded in 2014 during a clash with the Syrian military.
Shahadeh says ISIS's medical care "failed" and the cost to treat his injuries in Turkey would have been $8000.
To save money, terrorist leader Omar al-Shishani sent Khaled Shahadeh back to Sweden to get the treatment for free.
Speaking from inside a prison in Kurdish-held territory, 29-year-old Shahadeh told a crew from the Kurdish media outfit ReProduction, “They fixed the nerves.
"I recovered. Got married and returned here with my wife."
During the interview, Shahadeh describes how when he returned “home,” he was greeted at the airport by the Swedish Security Police SÄPO, Expressen reports.
“They were a little worried about why I returned to Sweden,” Shahadeh continued
“They immediately started asking questions about why I returned and what I would do in Sweden.
"They made it clear from the start that I had not done anything that violated the law,” Sahadeh claimed.
"They said there was no law that says I should not join al-Dawla or do jihad."
Shahadeh returned to the Islamic State in Syria in 2015.
He admits to witnessing mass executions of prisoners.
“Some prisoners were executed, others had their heads cut off,” he said.
"It’s the worst thing I’ve ever seen with my own eyes."
Shahadeh continued fighting alongside Islamic State terrorists until the final battle in Baghouz during the spring of 2019.
When he fled, Shahadeh ended up in the hands of the Kurds.
Once again, he’s expecting of the liberal Swedish state to allow him back into the country.
“I want to ask for all the people forgiveness, not just my family,” Shahadeh said.
"If Sweden wants to help us, let them help do it. We are grateful if Sweden helps us out of here,” he concluded.
Sweden has the highest percentage of jihadists per capita in Europe who’ve traveled to the Middle East to join terrorist organizations.
