Family of Nizar Shams el-Din Fadl al-Mawla on Monday has set up a mourning tent to receive condolences at their house in Khartoum’s eastern suburb of Arkawit.

A family member told Sudan Tribune that the parents of the young Jihadist have learnt news of his death from an anonymous caller, saying they have not received any details about how he was killed.

He pointed that the young Jihadist, who is a ninth grade student, was deceived by some and travelled to Libya for Da’wah (preaching of Islam) but found himself among ISIS fighters.

Social media have circulated photo of the young Jihadist with some Tweets saying that he joined ISIS since he was 15-years old while others said he was likely killed by ISIS because he decided to return to Sudan and abandon the extremist group.

Last month, an expert on Islamic Jihadist groups told Sudan Tribune that despite the increase in the number of Sudanese Jihadists joining ISIS-Libya; the group has lost over 20 Sudanese Jihadist, whom were killed in several places in Libya from June 2015 to June 2016.

The expert further stressed that several Sudanese Jihadists were killed in Sirte including al-Nur Musa nicknamed Abu- Maz al-Muthana who blow himself in the middle of (Libya Dawn) forces in Darna district.

Also, earlier this month Qusai al-Jaili , who is believed to be the mastermind behind the escape of killers of a U.S. diplomat in Khartoum, died in mysterious circumstances in Libya amid conflicting reports on whether he was killed in military clashes or passed a way of natural causes.
