Gaza-based terrorists are training to fight alongside Islamists against the Assad regime, the BBC reported Sunday, quoting recent Internet videos showing fighters training to storm buildings with Islamic music in the background.
One terrorist said on a video that he is going to fight a “holy war” in Syria because “there is no fighting with Israel right now.”
One man said that his son, a Salafist, convinced authorities to let him leave Gaza because he wanted to go to Mecca but in truth, “He chose martyrdom.”
