Syrian militants drowned while trying to reach Europe

Adding to the seven mentioned, there are dozens of Syrian militants trying to flee Libya to Europe via sea, whether they have explicitly exploited their transfer to Libya to head to Europe in the end, with Turkey securing half the way, or those who discovered the false Turkish allegations and the fact that they were merely mercenaries pushed into the fighting first ranks in order to get rid of them, preferring to try fleeing to Europe than continue fighting for the “GNA.”
