Former al-Qaeda leader Tareq al-Fadhli said that Ansar al-Sharia militants affiliated to al-Qaeda organization have withdrawn recently from Zinjubar and Ja’ar cities of Abyan province as a matter of partaking in the war against the Syrian regime, local media reported.
“The sudden withdrawal of al-Qaeda militants from the two cities of Zinjubar and Ja’ar in Abyan province is connected to a conclusive deal recently made to have groups of armed men relocated to Syria to partake in the war against the Syrian regime, al-Fadhli told the Adenalghd local news site.
Al-Fadhli also said that there must have been a regional deal that was possibly made to move al-Qaeda militants in Yemen to Turkey in order to cross to Syria and participate in the war.
