LONDON—The Syrian refugee who was tripped by a Hungarian camerawoman earlier this month was a member of the radical al-Nusra Front and fought the Kurds on many fronts in Syria, the Democratic Union Party (PYD) said Saturday.

The video footage of Osama Abdul Mohsen being kicked by a camerawoman on the Hungary-Serbia border went viral and prompted uproar around the world.

Abdul Mohsen later landed in Spain where he was offered a job and welcomed by Real Madrid football club including famous footballer Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, the Kurdish group PYD alleged in its official media that Abdul Mohsen had fought alongside the Nusra Front before leaving Syria with his family in the spring of 2015.

Furthermore, the PYD claimed that Abdul Mohsen was involved in the violent suppression of Kurdish riots in the city of Qamishlo in 2004 following a football match were more than 50 Kurds were killed by the Syrian security forces.

Abdul Mohsen was the coach of al-Fatwa club in Deir Ez Zor from 2004-2010.

The PYD said that he was an instigator behind the violence after the football match between al-Fatwa and Qamishlo’s Jihad club.

The PYD published a picture of Abdul Mohsen from his Facebook page before closing it down earlier this year where he identifies himself as a member of the Nusra Front, adding that he had fought the Kurds near Amudeh, Serekaniye and Afrin.

It is very good job by the YDP people for to identifying this criminal, who is criminal Muslim terrorist, enemy of the Kurds as well as western civilization. Kurds should never forget and forgive the ones who are hurting or hurted the Kurds and their children's and should hunt those Salafi Muslim dogs with the rabies until they brought to justice.

PKK-Kurds are all over twitter using the images of dead palestinian and syrian children and claiming it to be Cizre. PKK-Kurdish credibility in the eyes of informed observers is exactly at ZERO!! Wild claims (with zero proof) like this one are NOT helping you! It only looks like Kurds being sore for not being in the spotlight, thats all!!!
