Spain Dismantles al-Qaeda linked terrorist network responsible for sending fighters to Syria 

Jun 21, 2013

Spanish security forces on Friday broke up an Al-Qaeda-linked network in north Africa suspected of sending fighters to Syria, arresting eight people in early morning raids.

In a statement to Agence France Presse, Spanish Interior Ministry said : " We have broken up a network responsible for sending combatants to Al-Qaeda-linked terrorist groups operating in Syria,"

The network, operating in Ceuta and the neighbouring Moroccan town of Fnideq, sent dozens of combatants , some minors, to Syria, the ministry said.

It added that the dismantled Spanish-Moroccan network was, according to police investigations, responsible for sending jihadists to groups affiliated with Al Qaeda in Syria,"

"Some of them would have carried out suicide attacks while others would have been incorporated into training camps prior to carrying out armed action," the ministry said.

Security forces confirmed that several "jihadists" were waiting to travel from Spain to Syria, it added.

The Spanish official statement didn't describe the terrorist groups in Syria as an opposition since it includes foreign mercenaries linked to al-Qaeda.

It refuted the alleged mottos of such groups to carry out commands and dictates of the West for targeting Syria. Dismantling this network also coincides with the continued controversy about the Anglo-French unbridled desire to send more Weapons to the armed terrorist groups in Syria after the European Union's decision to end the embargo on arms supplies to the so-called opposition.

European Union governments are showing growing alarm over the potential security threat posed by the hundreds of young Europeans believed to be fighting alongside rebels in Syria.
