Report: More Palestinians Leaving Gaza Strip to Join Syrian Rebels

Report: More Palestinians Leaving Gaza Strip to Join Syrian Rebels

Reports indicate an increasing number of Palestinians are traveling from the Gaza Strip to Syria to fight in support of the “anti-Assad rebel forces.”

The sources reporting this increased participation claim that most of the Palestinians “who have joined the rebels in Syria were members of radical Salafi and Jihadi groups in the Gaza Strip.”

A leader of one of the Salafi groups in the Gaza Strip confirmed that “many of his supporters had joined the Syrian rebels.” He specifically mentioned that Palestinians were joining the al-Nusra Front, “which is fighting against the criminal regime in Syria.”

The U.S. designated the al-Nusra Front a “foreign terrorist organization” in Dec. 2012.
