Brisbane Syria fighter 'to die in battle or face jail'
A BRISBANE man believed to be fighting against the Islamic State in Syria has been issued stern warnings by Immigration Minister Peter Dutton and a terror expert.
Mr Dutton warned Ashley Dyball would die on the battlefield or face jail on his return home.
Global Terrorism Research Centre international director Professor Greg Barton urged him to put down his gun or at the very least stop posting regular updates to Facebook, to protect both himself and his fellow fighters.
Mr Dyball has shared news and photos with friends regularly since travelling to Syria in May, including travelling through a formerly IS-controlled area for supplies and posing with other fighters holding guns.
"He's building up a dossier of his activity, which he might be able to explain but he's going to be called to explain it when he does come back," Professor Barton said.
