6000 Terrorists Left Lebanon towards Syria over Past Five Years

The Lebanese security agencies unveiled that around 1300 terrorists out of 6000 ones who left Lebanon for joining ISIS and al-Nusra Front [Jabhat al-Nusra] in Syria had been killed over the past five years. 

These numbers, counted by the Lebanese security agencies for terrorists who joined ISIS and al-Nusra Front in Syria and Iraq, shocked concerned parties, the Lebanese al-Akhbar newspaper reported in an article written by Radwan Mortada.

The writer clarified that those terrorists used three routes: either via Beirut Airport to Turkey and then to Raqqa province in Syria, or via illegal border crossings, or via sea.

 "Hundreds of young persons under the age of 30 left Lebanon towards Syria and Iraq," Mortada said.

At the beginning of this year, the Lebanese General Security Directorate arrested 4 Lebanese persons for forming terrorist cell where one of them admitted his support for a terrorist organization, recruiting youths and publishing the organization's thoughts through social media in order to attract youths.

Since 2011, a foreign-backed terror war has been waged on Syria targeting its army, people, civilization and infrastructures in accordance with US-Zionist plot that aims to fragment the region and to have hegemony over its wealth.
