Kosovo Albanians connected to the terrorist Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) are reportedly fighting alongside the Syrian rebels against the regime of President Assad.
The advent of Kosovo Albanians fighting in Syria follows Syrian rebels being trained at terror camps in Kosovo. The KLA were described by Robert Gelbard, President Bill Clinton's special envoy to the Balkans, as "without any questions, a terrorist group."
In 1998 the U.S. State Department listed the KLA as a terrorist organization, funded by Islamic countries. Al Qaeda members were known to have trained in Kosovo terror camps.
NSNBC reported the Albanian mafia, involved in drug and arms smuggling, and the sale of body parts, worked alongside Islamic terrorists. Thus the connections are in place for Kosovo Albanians to connect with Islamic terrorists that place the assassination of Assad on their agenda.
Proto Thema reported at least two groups of Albanian fighters are now active in Syria. According to Storm Front the killing of Syrian civilians, blamed on the Assad regime, replicate tactics used by the Kosovo Albanians in Serbia. Tactics include sending the opposition to kill uniformed forces then take their uniforms, commit a civilian massacre, leaving witnesses alive to testify to western media that the security forces committed the barbaric slaughter.
Reports of Albanian terrorists fighting alongside the Syrian opposition, are corroborated by the report of the death of Albanian Naman Demoli, former member of the KLA, in Syria. Demoli was a leading Kosovan activist advocating that Pristina build a large Wahhabi mosque.
The inclusion of KLA fighters in Syria raises further questions about western support for the Syrian opposition and the potential arming of international terrorists.
