Chechen and Caucasian extremists have been dispatched to Syria to fight alongside with al-Qaeda elements in Syria’s foreign-hatched civil war, a report says.

Over hundreds of Chechen and Caucasian armed groups have entered Syria via Turkey in order to kill Syrian government forces and civilians, Debkafile revealed.

According to the report, Russian-speaking al-Qaeda militants from Chechnya and the Caucasian seized the northern Syrian air base of Mennigh, 10 kilometers south of Aleppo, from the Syrian army on August 5.

The report also said, the Chechen extremists, who help armed terrorists in Syria, are affiliated to the outlawed group of Caucasus Emirate.

Russian daily of Kommersant has quoted a source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, saying that some military bases in Chechnya train militants to dispatch them to Syria and Chechen ringleader Moein Abu Musab supervises them in fighting against Syria.

The Chechen extremists have been dispatched to Syria to fight government armed forces and slaughter Syrian Kurds, the newspaper wrote.

Syria’s Kurds have inflicted heavy losses on terrorist groups affiliated to al-Qaeda network.

Meanwhile, Western media have revealed that several European extremists entered Syria and the war-stricken country has turned into the most important scene of extremist clashes in the world.

The war in Syria started in March 2011, when pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following 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.
