The recently released propaganda magazine of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has carried an article featuring the Sri Lankan who was reportedly killed in Syria, who was described by media as "Sri Lanka's first ISIS fighter".

The article makes a chilling revelation, claiming that 16 other Sri Lankans joined the ISIS along with him.

In a featured article which was titled as ‘Amongst the Believers Are Men: Abu Shurayh As - Silani', the magazine 'Dabiq' explains how 'Silani' died. Accordingly, there was an air strike and 'Silani' went to check out for casualties. Then the second air strike was hit and he was killed, it explains.

The immediate family did not suspect any interest in joining the combat units of the ISIS as he had a background of doing humanitarian work in Sri Lanka. He had done relief work after the December 2004 tsunami in Sri Lanka.

However, the government authorities states that there is no any threat from the ISIS.
