Saudi fighter in Syria calls it quits
A Saudi who reportedly went to fight abroad a year-and-a-half ago has surrendered himself to the Saudi Embassy in Amman, said Sami Al-Saleh, Saudi ambassador to Jordan.
Khalaf Al-Enezi from Arar had left his hometown to fight in Syria.
Al-Enezi is expected to reach the Kingdom within a few days following Jordanian-Saudi coordination.
He worked as a preacher at a local mosque in Arar. Al-Enezi’s mother was overjoyed to hear the news of his surrender.
“The embassy did not interrogate him about his stay in Syria nor who he was fighting with,” said Saleh.
The embassy bought him his return ticket home.
Al-Saleh reiterated the embassy’s keenness on taking care of the affairs of former Saudi fighters from the time they surrender until they get home.
Mohammad Al-Bluwi, the embassy’s spokesman said the embassy has no further comment on the matter.
“The citizen is in good health and will be flown to the Kingdom within a few days,” read the statement.
