More than 6,000 foreign militants have been killed in Syria, among them at least 630 from the terrorist Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization (MKO), a new report shows.
According to the Lebanese Al Manar TV, citing reliable reports from European research centers, more than 40,000 of foreign militants are fighting in a massive insurgency in Syria which has torn the country apart in more than two years.
As the report shows, it can be said for sure that at least 6113 militants have been killed so far, while the actual amount is said to be much more.
Among those killed, 640 militants have been identified to be linked to the terrorist Mojahedin-e-Khalq organization.
The MKO is listed as a terrorist organization by much of the international community and has committed numerous terrorist acts against Iranians and Iraqis.
In early April, the MKO opened an office near the White House in Washington for the first time in 11 years.
The MKO’s office, located a block from the White House, officially opened on April 11 only months after the United States formally removed the anti-Iranian group from the US list of terrorist organizations in September 2012.
Results of the available data shows, 729 militants from Saudi Arabia, 640 from MKO, 489 from Egypt, 439 from Lebanon, 439 from Caucasus, 301 from Afghanistan, 263 from Libya, 261 from Pakistan, 208 from Iraq, 188 from Russia, 167 from Turkey, 129 from Jordan, 117 from Somalia, 109 from Kuwait, 90 from France, 67 from Germany, 66 from Britain, 50 from Tunisia, 55 from Indonesia, 53 from Algeria, 52 from Yemen, 19 from Qatar, 45 from Belgium, 40 from Uzbekistan, 35 from United States, 31 from Kosovo, 21 from Azerbaijan, 31 from Malta, 7 from Mauritania, 6 from Sierra Leone and 6 from Suriname have been killed in the violence.
Infiltration of foreign militants to Syria, by the help of their western and regional supporters is turning to be a grave concern for regional countries.
The bloodshed has already caused security problems in Lebanon and in Iraq, while Turkey, one of the main supports of the war, is also facing unrest which is seen to be partly due to its controversial policies to back the violence against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
