Large Arms Cargo Crosses Turkish Border into Northern Syria
Informed sources disclosed that a large cargo of arms and ammunition has crossed Turkey’s Southern border to the terrorist-held regions in Northern Syria.
“Several trucks, carrying arms and weapons, freely passed through territories controlled by various terrorist groups in Norther Aleppo and reached an area controlled by the ISIL militants,” the Russian center for the Syria reconciliation said.
Also in May, informed sources disclosed that the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front continued to use the Turkish borders to send fresh fighters to Syria’s Northern province of Aleppo to join their comrades in the battlefields.
“The terrorists, who enter Syria via Turkish Southern border, stay several days in al-Nusra military training camps to be trained by the experienced terrorists of the group,” the sources said, adding, “As soon as getting ready, the fresh recruits will be dispatched to the battlefields.”
“Most of the fresh recruits do not have any war experience and need more military training in order to be a real fighter,” the sources added.
Since escalation of crisis in Syria, Turkish borders have been the main sources of infiltration of terrorists into Syria.
Sources said in May that a large number of terrorists crossed the Turkish border with Syria’s Northern province of Aleppo to join al-Nusra Front.
“A 70-member-group of terrorists, trained and supplied in Turkey, have entered Anadan in the territories of Northern Aleppo in groups to join the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front,” Syria’s Peace Coordination Center in Hmeimim said, adding, “The fresh terrorists have brought with themselves three vehicles loaded with ammunition and weapons.”
