Turkey starts airlifting terrorists from Syria to Yemen

Turkey has on Sunday begun with the transfer of fighters from terrorist groups in Syria, in order to participate in the fighting against Yemen, Yemen Press Agency reported, citing sources familiar with the issue.

The sources said that Turkish planes transported mercenaries of the terrorist organisations al-Qaeda and ISIS from the occupied Syrian territories to the Qatari capital of Doha, in preparation for their transfer to the Yemeni city of Ma’rib across the Empty Quarter desert.

Many mercenaries loyal to Ankara would be transported in the Syrian territories through Turkish and Saudi airports, the sources added.

This comes days after several local and regional media circulated news of a Turkish-Saudi understanding about Turkey’s participation in the war on Yemen.

In the same context, leaders of takfiri organisations in Syria have published videos announcing that they are sending mercenary recruits to fight in Yemen in exchange for 4,000 dollars per fighter.
