An Albanian sniper group has joined jihadists fighting in Idlib, Syria.
The news was published by French media “France Soir”, which writes that Albanians have also published a long video, showing about their activity.
“France Soir” refers to a video recording distributed on August 4, 2018 by media Xhemati Alban. It is called “Albanian snipers on Sham’s land” lasting 33 minutes and 15 seconds.
According to the French media, the media of Alban Albans appears to be a media for Albanians recruited to Syria within the jihadist group Hayat Tahrir al-Cham (HTC). According to sources, this has brought together a hundred Albanians, led by Hattabi Albani.
Abu Qatada Albani, the leader of the Albanians, was very close to the leader of the jihadist group that ruled in Idlib.
Another Albanian, a Macedonian citizen, Sheikh Abu Qatada al-Albani, whose real name is Abdul Jashari, was al-Nusra’s military leader. In 2016, he was introduced to the blacklist of the US Treasury Department.
The sniper video is part of a media campaign to increase the presence of the contingent. It is in Albanian and is titled in English.
Albanian snipers seem to use sniper rifles produced by them, as well as SVDs Dragunov, AK-74Ms with binoculars and silencers.
