British jihadis using cheap holiday flights and paying off local fishermen to enter Syria from Northern Cyprus

British-born extremists are reaching terror cells in Syria by joining holiday-makers on budget flights to sun-kissed Cyprus.

They’re then handing over as much as £1,000 to local fishermen in the Turkish-controlled north of the country to be sailed across the water to the war-torn Middle Eastern state, arriving in the dead of night.

The route is now so well trodden that it is easier than ever for jihadis in the UK to join ISIS terrorists fighting across the country and in Iraq.
