Several Chechen Mujahideen who fought on the rebel side had been killed during the fightings on the outskirts of the Syrian city of Homs, reported by Russian news agency RIA News with reference to the Assad regime's news agency SANA.
In this regard, the Russian media outlets recall that earlier, at a gathering of intelligence chiefs in Moscow, the FSB chief Bortnikov also said that the natives of the Caucasus Emirate were fighting in the units of the Syrian Mujahideen, as well as allegedly in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
"The FSB pays special attention to the fact that residents of North Caucasus republics participate in activities of anti-government groups in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Syria, where they are sent for training by the Caucasus Emirate terrorist network", said Bortnikov.
Russian media outlets pointed out that the ringleader of Chechen minions Kadyrov had previously denied this information, calling it an "absolute lie". "The Chechens are not fighting in Syria", claimed Kadyrov.
Meanwhile, the KC correspondent in Syria has corrected reports about the martyrdom of Chechen Mujahideen in Syria. KC correspondent Islam Sayathan referring to the command of the Syrian Mujahideen reported that three days ago, at least two Chechen Mujahideen had martyred, Insha'Allah, but not in Holms but in the battles near the Syrian city of Idlib.
