Have your say

TWITTER has suspended the account of a man from Portsmouth who is fighting in Syria after reports he posted terror messages.

The 19-year-old, Muhammad Hassan, used the network to threaten violence against the west, according to the Sunday Times.

The newspaper reported that Hassan posted: ‘America wants to drone Dawlah [ISIS]? Inshallah [God willing], you will receive many more 9/11s.’

Hassan travelled to Syria with other men from Portsmouth last October.

The Sunday Times also said that one member of the Portsmouth group who uses the online alias Abu Abdallah declared he would go on a killing spree if he returned to Britain.

He was quoted as saying: ‘Yeah mate, go back to Britain. You got to be joking.

‘I’ll probably end up going on a killing spree with all the kuffar [non-Muslims] around me.’
