Exploiting ongoing transfer of Syrian mercenaries | Abu Amsha smuggles north-west African-born European jihadists to Libya

Reliable sources have told the Syrian Observatory that Turkish-backed factions have smuggled north-west African-born European fighters to Libya by transporting them among batches of Syrian mercenaries heading there, as these fighters have planned to return to their countries in Europe.

 

According to SOHR sources, the leader of the Turkish-backed faction of Sultan Suleiman Shah “Abu Amsha” has transported five European fighters of African descent to Libya, exploiting the back-and-forth transfer operations of Syrian mercenaries from and to Libya. It is worth noting that there are nine other jihadists being prepared to be transported to Libya with the next batches of Syrian mercenaries.

 

The Syrian Observatory had pointed out to the fact that nearly 10,000 jihadists, mostly Tunisians, were transported from Syria to Libya in 2020.
