Isuf Zena, the father of Arben Zena, who took his son Erion to to ISIS held territory in Syria against his mother’s knowledge in June 2014. He stayed for three months among other Albanians in Syria while Arben went to fight on the frontlines in Mosul, Iraq. His grandson Erion was returned to Kosovo by Fitim Lladrovci, featured above. “I’m happy that my grandson is in Prishtina. The things that happen in Mosul and Syria are awful. I would never want my grandson there… I have only seen him once since he has returned because his mother refuses, which breaks my heart. As for my son, I try to contact him on Skype twice a week but to no avail; last time I heard from him, he told me he was re-married to an intellectual woman in Mosul. But that was two years ago," said Isuf Zena. Image by AJ Naddaff. Kosovo, 2018.
