A frightening set of pictures has stoked fears that the Islamic State is planning another Tunisia-style attack, this time in Turkey.
Photos of Islamic State (ISIS) jihadist Pasaliasi Isde surfaced on Facebook on Friday, showing the terrorist sunbathing and walking around conspicuously in Amasra, Turkey.
He is pictured clean-shaven and dressed in shorts, looking like any other vacationer, but those images are in stark contrast to other photos of Pasaliasi that show a much darker, more evil side.
His ISIS propaganda photos show the jihadist posing with an Islamic State flag in the back of a truck armed with a machine gun, while others show him in military fatigues and holding military-style firearms.
In his most disturbing pictures, Pasaliasi is shown next to the severed heads and corpses of ISIS victims.
The terrorist’s Facebook page, where the pictures were posted, was discovered by British national Macer Gifford, who gave up his career to join Kurdish forces in their battle against ISIS, according to the Daily Mail, with which Gifford spoke Friday.
‘This is every family’s worst nightmare,” Gifford told the Mail. “After the events in Tunisia, people need to be aware of the global nature of the ISIS threat.
“Its chilling to see someone that has fought alongside ISIS in Syria, smiling and relaxing next holidaymakers.”
Gifford thinks Turkish authorities may be complicit in allowing the terrorist group to operate within the country.
“These images will at best be humiliating for the Turkish authorities,” Gifford said. “At worst it confirms allegations Turkey is allowing ISIS fighters to operate within its borders.
“Let’s be absolutely clear, Turkey is a wealthy country with a very effective security apparatus. How is it that I can track these people down online from the UK and Turkey can’t?” he asked rhetorically.
The terrorist attack on a Tunisian beach by ISIS jihadist Seifeddine Rezgui in June claimed the lives of 38 people.
