[Comment: Found by Josie Ensor in Mosul. The Tariq bin Ziyad Battalion was known for having many foreign fighters in its ranks (i.e. people from outside Iraq and Syria) and the ID number beginning 1,200,0…is found for a number of the battalion’s personnel. See here for comparison as well as West Point CTC’s study on Islamic State databases discussing the ID number system. However, it should be noted that the name ‘al-Jarjari suggests this fighter was originally from the Mosul area/Ninawa. Note that ‘Eastern Region’ refers to the Iraqi theatre of operation for the Islamic State.].
