It is not known if Zammar was in Syria fighting for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

 

 

The one of commander with the SDF said that Zammar was in custody and was being interrogated. The Pentagon also spoke on the matter and said that it was working closely with SDF and was trying to obtain some more details.

 

 

An international online web media quoted Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon as saying, “We can confirm that Mohammad Haydar Zammar, a Syrian-born German national, was captured more than a month ago by SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces) partners as part of their ongoing operations to defeat ISIS inside Syria.”

He also said that Zammar’s arrest was “a strong reminder of the threat posed by ISIS and its network of foreign terrorist fighters.”

 

 

Now know little bit about who is Mohammed Haydar Zammar?

The apps are available on the Apple App Store as Beetle VPN, Buckler VPN, and Hat VPN Pro, Avast said.

These three apps have been downloaded over 420K, 271K, and 96K times, respectively, between April 2019 and May 2020, according to data from Sensor Tower, a mobile apps marketing intelligence and insights company.

“Fleeceware apps fall into a gray area, because they are not malicious per se, they simply charge users absurd amounts of money for weekly, monthly or yearly subscriptions for features that should be offered at much lower costs,” Nikolaos Chrysaidos, Head of Mobile Threats & Security at Avast, said in a statement.

The apps” all have high ratings, ranging from 4.6 to 4.8, and include enthusiastic reviews, all similarly written, which Avast considers may potentially be fake.
