Human Rights Watch: Terrorists Recruiting Fighters Under US-Planned Ceasefire in Syria
“The Al-Nusra has managed to recruit and transfer thousands of fresh terrorists, including youngsters, to Syria’s Northern territories, which shows how the US-backed ceasefire has ended in opposite results,” said Rami Abdul Rahman, the president of SOHR.
“My sources in al-Nusra told me that at least 3,000 fresh recruits joined al-Nusra in March, including hundreds of the refugees who lived in Northern camps,” He further added.
Military observers of the Syrian crisis have announced that most of the advances of the al-Nusra front in the battlefields are indebted to its recent recruitment of fresh forces during the ceasefirewhich has enabled the terrorist group to think about materialization of its old projects.
On Sunday, new documents by a human rights watch disclosed that a Syrian-Saudi man was the mastermind behind the infiltration of over 6,000 terrorists from the European countries into Syria.
“Tarrad Mohammad al-Jarba, originally a Syrian who later obtained Saudi nationality, has been an ISIL commander in charge of recruitment of fresh forces from the European countries and transferring them to the battlefields in Syria,” documents by the watch said.
“Tarrad was in Saudi jails for at least four years. He further escaped the jail and went to Syria to join the ISIL,” the documents went on to say.
Al-Watan paper, meantime, has claimed that al-Jarba is not the real family name of Tarrad.
Tarrad is the relative of Hareth al-Zari, the ex-secretary general of the Iraqi Muslim Ullema, who was killed in Jordan last year.
Daily Telegraph also had previously found out that the 36-year-old al-Jarba’s real name, who used in many cases the family name of al-Haraki, was Abu Mohammad al-Shamali.
The Telegraph added that al-Shamali was responsible of transferring over 6,000 terrorists, one third of the total number of non-Syrian terrorists, into Syria in two years of 2013 until 2015.
The Telegraph went on to say that the family names of al-Jarba and al-Haraki can be seen on the top of recruitment forms of fresh forces heading to Syria battlefields.
