Over the weekend, various Syrian websites reported Tarik Taketloune’s death. He is reported to have been killed in heavy fighting near to the town Al-Qusayr.
Al-Qusayr was re-taken by Syrian government force after last week’s fighting. The Belgian Foreign Ministry said on Sunday that it could not confirm the reports of Tarik Taketloune’s death.
Nevertheless, he was remembering during Friday prayers at his local mosque in Vilvoorde.
