Rob Bertholee: Hundreds of foreigners to fight in the “Holy War” in Syria

The chief of General Dutch intelligence Rob Bertholee warned that dozens of Dutch citizens are fighting with the “rebels” in Syria, saying that they might return to their country loaded with extremist thoughts.

AP German agency quoted Bertholee in saying yesterday that, “the number of Dutch persons who are coming to Syria is raising, which makes us worry from them, returning to their country after fighting with Radical Islamist terrorists in Syria”.

Bertholee added that hundreds of people from Europe and dozens from Netherlands are traveling to Syria to participate with the rebels for what they consider a “Holly War or Jihad” against the Syrian leadership”.

Bertholee pointed out that the media is adding an emotional side to the current events in Syria to receive the largest number of foreigner watchers.
