A young Australian man who had traveled to Syria in order to join ISIS and fight alongside the death cult extremist group has been sentenced to four years imprisonment in Sydney today, even though he claims he never participated in any actual fighting.

Mr. Mehmet Biber, 20 years old in 2013 when he left for Syria, had seen videos of the group on Youtube and thought that the images of women and children being killed in that country’ civil war were enough for him to join. Ignoring his family's pleas, he went to Syria "to do something to help" in July of that year.

Known terrorist recruiter Hamdi Alqudsi, who traveled to Syria via Turkey to fight with insurgents Ahrar al-Sham, got him all the necessary documents and introduced him to ISIS in Syria.

But according to Mr. Biber, nothing actually took place and he never participated in any actual fighting. In February 2014, he was arrested in Turkey with an expired visa, claiming that he had left ISIS.

Mr. Biber's father Gaven then contacted Turkish authorities on four separate occasions via the Australian embassy over there and in the end traveled himself Turkey to bring his son home. According to Mr. Gaven Biber, that decision saved the life of his own son.

"Any parent would have done the same thing that I did. We did everything in our power to stop him. Unfortunately, the authorities gave us no help whatsoever. We had to travel to Turkey and persuade him to come back, which we achieved that goal.

"We're very proud of ourselves."
