Three Muslims arrested in Germany for links to Syrian terror group

Three German men of Syrian descent were arrested in Germany on Tuesday on suspicion of supporting a Syrian jihadist faction fighting to overthrow Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad.

The German public prosecutor in Karlsruhe, the federal court responsible for dealing with terror-related cases, said the three men were detained for providing financial, technical and logistical support to the hardline Islamist faction Ahrar al-Sham.

One of the men faces seven counts of providing the group with several thousand euros worth of binoculars, radio scanners, long-range telescopes, routers and antennas.

Another is accused of organizing pickup trucks and ambulance services for Ahrar al-Sham, as well as driving a pickup truck all the way to Syria himself.
