Jihadi: I won't go home until fight is over.

Byline: KAREN ROCKETT

THE last surviving brother in a trio of jihadis who left Britain to fight in Syria said he will not return to his family until all Muslim lands are "liberated".

Amer Deghayes, 20, has lost his two brothers Jaffar, 17, and Abdullah, 18, in the fight to oust Syrian dictator Bashar Assad's regime.

But asked if he would return home, the former finance student of Saltdean, East Sussex, said: "Nope. Jihad nowadays isn't for tasters. It's a commitment.

"When all Muslim lands are liberated from infidels ruling and is ruled by Islam, then I can think about it."

On Friday David Cameron outlined powers to stop British jihadists who go to fight overseas from returning to the UK under new Temporary Exclusion Orders. But Amer insisted: "If I want to come back, I will - and no one can stop me except for Allah."
