An Australian man seized in Syria has been accused of interacting with a terrorist group by the Assad regime.
Free Syrian Army Australian head Zaky Mallah said he encouraged Australians to continue travelling to Syria to provide aid or battle Assad's forces, despite the violence plaguing the country.
It is unclear where Mr al-Kalkuni had lived in Australia, or when he was last settled here, but it is believed he visited as recently as last year.
he was arrested in Dar'a, where it is believed he lived and operated a business
"We need to find out where he is, what's happened to him and why Assad is free to lock up innocent people," Mr Mallah said.
Mr Mallah told Fairfax Media last week that about 250 Australians were providing aid in Syria, and acknowledged that some may be fighting with rebel forces.
