The transfer of a batch of militants from Idlib to Ukraine.
A new batch of extremist militants has left in Idlib towards Ukraine to fight against the Russian forces, under the direct supervision of the “Al-Nusra”.
The sources reported that 87 militants left the Syrian territories last Saturday towards Turkey, to set off towards Ukraine, with the aim of participating in the battles against the Russian forces participating in the special operation in the Donbass area.
The source added that most of the militants who belong to the Iraqi, Tunisian, French and Chechen nationalities, and are affiliated with the “Guardians of Religion”, “Ansar al-Tawhid” and “Al-Nusra” organizations, and they also have experience in guerrilla warfare.
The source confirmed that “Al-Nusra”, in coordination with Turkish intelligence, took charge of the transfer of the militants, as they arrived in “Sarmada” on Thursday and Friday, and entered Turkey on Saturday, heading towards Ukraine.
According to the source, the leader of “Al-Nusra”, “Abu Muhammad al-Julani”, held a series of meetings over the past week with leaders of the extremist factions, in which he called for what he called “jihad” in Ukraine, but indicated the necessity of inviting non-Syrian foreign militants to fight there, and refused to send local militants.
The source indicated that “Al-Julani” tried to point out the necessity of sending the militants, whom he considers “sedition igniters” for not obeying the orders of his organization, in order to get rid of them after convincing them that he will take care of their families in Idlib until they return.
The sources revealed that on March 8 that 450 militants belonging to the “ISIS” organization arrived in Ukraine after “Al-Nusra” tempted them with high salaries and guarantees for their families, and Turkey facilitated the transfer of them.
