BRUSSELS, (SANA) – Head of Eurojust (European Union Judicial Cooperation Unit), Michele Coninsx, acknowledged on Sunday that hundreds of Europeans are joining the armed terrorist groups in Syria.
Coninsx remarks came amidst reports by Belgian newspapers on Belgians who are increasingly joining the armed terrorist groups in Syria.
Russia Today website cited Belgian media outlets as saying that the Belgian Interior Ministry tasked a specialized workgroup with setting procedures to prevent Belgian young men from joining mercenaries in Syria.
Media reports indicate that the number of Belgian armed men in Syria is 50 to 80 people. They arrived in Syria with the help of a banned movement in Belgium that calls itself "Sharia for Belgium."
