A Japanese national was arrested by the Turkish border guards on Tuesday after he was caught attempting to enter Syria via the Jarabulus border-crossing.

According to the Hurriyet Daily, the suspect was arrested in the Nizip District of the Gaziantep Province – he was identified as “M.M.”

“The suspect confessed during an interrogation that he had come to the district to cross the border and join ISIL, saying he met a Syrian person on the phone and was convinced to join the jihadist group.”

The Japanese national will be deported by the Turkish authorities after his identification is confirmed.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
