Foreign mercenaries in Syria intimidating Alawites, Kurds


MOSCOW, August 22 (Itar-Tass) – Foreign mercenaries   fighting in Syria are trying to intimidate the Alawites and   Kurds, committing mass murders, Russian Foreign Ministry   spokesman Alexander Lukashevich stated on Thursday.

He cited the situation in Aleppo’s Karm al-Jabal   district, which was seized a few days ago by foreign   mercenaries of the Jabhat al-Nusra group that is liked to   Al-Qaeda, as an example of such actions.

“The actions of the militants were openly terrorist in   nature and were aimed at intimidating the Alawite   population. According to available data, more than 100   women were raped and murdered, the fate of more than 150   people is still unknown,” Lukashevich said.

“There is a very acute humanitarian tragedy in the   northeast Syria areas that are densely inhabited by the   Kurds. There is mass exodus of the civilian population from   there, seeking refuge in Iraqi Kurdistan from the outrages   committed by extremist groups, first of all by the   terrorists of Jabhat al-Nusra,” he added.

Previously, the Foreign Ministry reported that Tthe flow of foreign mercenaries in Syria has reached the number that Iraq had in 2005-2007.
