German musician trades guitar for jihad in Syria
The Violations Documenting Center in Syria has released images of a German rapper turned Muslim convert fighting the regime of President Bashar Assad in Latakia, Syria.
Formerly known as 'Deso Dogg', this German musician now goes by the name of "German Abu Talha".
Abu Talha seems to be in high spirits as he splashes Syrian spring water around shouting "Alhumdilallah".
After securing various strategic villages in the Latakia area, which is also the homeland of Assad, the rebels were forced out of the province by Syrian troops on Monday.
