Iraqi journalists and media professionals have been surprised when they discovered that Adel al-Saegh, a journalist media reports said three years ago that he was executed by ISIS, is still alive.
In a Facebook post Saegh wrote on Tuesday night: "There is no deity except You; exalted are You. Indeed, I have been of the wrongdoers."
"Allah so determined and did as He willed", he added.
Saegh, who worked as a reporter for Saladin TV, received congratulations from Facebook users for being safe and sound.
The Iraqi journalist's last post on the social networking website was on December 22 2014. This was before it was reported that he was executed by ISIS terrorists in Mosul city.
Saegh did not explain the circumstances of his disappearance and comeback.
