For months, the Kremlin has sounded warnings that Russian-speaking Islamists were joining rebels in Syria. Now it seems to be confronted with defections from the families of some of its own officials.

The top immigration official in the predominantly Muslim southern Russian republic of Chechnya was fired after it was disclosed that his daughter had joined Syrian rebels trying to overthrow Syria’s Bashar al-Assad, officials confirmed Friday.

Kremlin-backed Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov announced the firing on his Instagram account Thursday night, saying, “It’s no longer possible to trust” Asu Dudarkayev as the head of Chechnya’s regional migration service.

Mr. Dudarkayev was unavailable for comment Friday.

The Kremlin fears that Islamist rebels from Russia are gaining battle experience and jihadist contacts in Syria, and that they will one day return to Russia and stir up trouble. A number of Chechen rebels have already emerged as leaders among Syrian rebels because of their experience in fighting a standing army in Russia.

Mr. Kadyrov, an ethnic Chechen whose loyalty with President Vladimir Putin has helped the Kremlin crush rebels in Chechnya, said he had received reports that migration service employees were rude and were using bureaucratic hurdles to extract bribes from citizens.

But Mr. Kadyrov also noted that Mr. Dudurkayev’s daughter was “among Wahabbis and bandits who are spilling the blood of peaceful citizens and blowing up Islamic shrines in Syria.”

Mr. Kadyrov said the Chechen government had offered to help him retrieve his daughter, but that he had said he would resolve the issue on his own.

“[Mr. Dudarkayev's] daughter is still with the bandits,” Mr. Kadyrov wrote on his Instagram page.

Moscow has for years fought a simmering Islamist insurgency in its rugged North Caucasus region, and has lately stepped up pressure on rebel groups, fearing they may launch an attack on the Winter Olympic Games in the southern coastal city of Sochi next year.

Some of the pressure has been applied to family members of insurgents as well: In the southern province of Dagestan, security forces have taken to blowing up the homes of relatives of suspected rebels, and President Vladimir Putin earlier this month signed a law making families of terrorists financially accountable for damage of their attacks.

New York, Human Rights Watch (HRW) confirmed that armed groups in Syria committed violations that amount to war crimes in their attack against Sadad town in Homs in late October, 2013.

The HRW said in extracts of a report published on its website that the gunmen committed violations that included execution of civilians, indiscriminate shelling, sniper attacks, use of residents as human shields and targeting and vandalizing churches.

The report included testimonies of eyewitnesses who confirmed that the gunmen refused to allow the villagers to leave their homes in areas with active fighting, which caused casualties among the civilians.

Others said that the gunmen used civilians as human shields.

The eyewitnesses also confirmed that the gunmen stole the possessions of residents and looted and intentionally vandalized civilian sites and holy places.
