ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “The new Aussie battlers vying for a spot in the housing market | ABC News” – below is their description.
Four years ago, as war raged in Khaled Ali’s home country of Syria, there was a constant threat of being kidnapped or killed at any time by Islamic State militants.
“They call your family and say, ‘We need money, otherwise we’re going to kill your son or your brother,'” said Mr Ali, a member of the Ezidi religious minority sometimes called Yazidi.
“That’s happened with some of my friends from my area.”
Some of Mr Ali’s family remain in the Middle East. He was able to escape to Toowoomba in southern Queensland.ABC News (Australia) YouTube Channel
