Tunisia Sending Terrorists to Syria via Turkey

TEHRAN (FNA)- An organized terrorist network in Tunisia recruits and dispatches young people to Syria via Turkey after training and mobilizing them, media reports disclosed on Wednesday, adding that the Tunisian government is fully aware of the crime.

According to a report by the internet-edition of Tunisian al-Jaridah daily, the family of Omayah bin Mohammad Noureddin, one of the Tunisian terrorists, have called the newspaper and revealed the details of the crime.

."It is a phenomenon which has extensively spread across Tunisia," Noureddin's family members said

They said their son, 25, and a junior of history at college left home on December 12, sent to Syria via Turkey and has not returned yet.

The report came after three Tunisian terrorists were arrested by the Syrian army in October. The three militants belong to a group of foreign terrorists supporting the so-called Free Syrian Army, dubbed 'Jibhat Nosrat El Shem.'

It is estimated that hundreds of Tunisian terrorists are currently fighting against forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad as West-led foreign fighters who seek to destabilize the Arab country.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards being reported across the country.

In October, calm was eventually restored in the Arab state after President Assad started a reform initiative in the country, but Israel, the US and its Arab allies are seeking hard to bring the country into chaos through any possible means. Tel Aviv, Washington and some Arab capitals have been staging various plots in the hope of stirring unrests in Syria once again.

The US and its western and regional allies have long sought to topple Assad and his ruling system. Media reports said that the Syrian rebels and terrorist groups have received significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks, a crime paid for by the Persian Gulf Arab states and coordinated by the United States.

The US daily, Washington Post, reported in May that the Syrian rebels and terrorist groups battling the President Bashar al-Assad's government have received significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks, a crime paid for by the Persian Gulf Arab states and coordinated by the United States.

The newspaper, quoting opposition activists and US and foreign officials, reported that Obama administration officials emphasized the administration has expanded contacts with opposition military forces to provide the Persian Gulf nations with assessments of rebel credibility and command-and-control infrastructure.

Opposition activists who several months ago said the rebels were running out of ammunition said in May that the flow of weapons - most bought on the black market in neighboring countries or from elements of the Syrian military in the past - has significantly increased after a decision by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other Persian Gulf states to provide millions of dollars in funding each month.
