Expert: About 600 Saudi fighters have joined Al-Qaeda, ISIL in Syria

BlackHouse, Aug. 18 – Al Arabiya -The conversation about Islamic extremism should begin with Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states that have funded and fuelled extremist ideology.

Financial support for terrorism from Saudis remains a threat to the international community.

Faris Bin Hizam,a Saudi expert in Islamist movements said an estimated 600 Saudis have joined al-Qaeda-affiliated groups and ISIS in Syria to fight against Syrian government on the ranks of terrorist groups.

Bin Hizam noted that al-Qaeda tends to amplify the number of its Saudi members in Syria, Pakistan, Yemen and Iraq as a way to attract more more volunteers and more financial support from its donors.
