The Jordanian intelligence agency is directly involved in training the European and Asian militants to prepare them for fighting against the government of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria.

Informed sources said on Monday that over 1,000 trained Takfiri fighters were sent to Turkey from Jordan last week to be transferred to Lattakia, Western Syria, and fight in Anfal operations against the government forces and people.

According to sources, Jordan uses the Turkish borders to prevent being accused of training the terrorists and keep it a clandestine operation.

The Takfiri fighters who are from different European and Asian countries are mostly Chechnian and are sent to Lattakia to fight in Kassab battlefield.

Sources, who asked to remain anonymous, told FNA that Jordan’s intelligence agency has direct connections with the militants in Syria and increases the number of fighters to be sent to Syria on a daily basis.

They also added that these militants are sent to Syria via direct flights from Amman to the border province of Hatay in Turkey.

Turkey’s policy of keeping its border with Syria open despite the war there cost the ruling party control of the border province of Hatay in local elections last week.

Voters punished the government for a strategy they see as fuelling insecurity and hitting the economy – a striking upset amid a wave of victories for Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan’s party in the polls.

The open border has drawn accusations of allowing radical fighters to cross the border unchecked and of burdening a fragile economy with an influx of the displaced.

The conflict in Syria started in March 2011, when sporadic pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of western and regional states.

The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle-East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.

As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.

Washington has remained indifferent to warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.

According to reports, the western powers and their regional allies, specially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey, are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.
