Faik Uksmajli repeatedly asked the Kosovo Police to prohibit his sons, daughter-in-law and grand children from leaving the country and traveling to Syria -- his eldest wanted to fight with ISIS. The police, however, failed to stop them. So he went after them himself. Uksmajli was unable to retrieve his sons, one of whom was killed and the other badly wounded in airstrikes in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo in August 2014. The family is from a small village called Naradinja.
