The suspects are believed to have used a non-governmental organisation to finance the activities of Al-Qaeda affiliated militants, writes Europol.

The network diverted funds raised in good faith by religious associations, under the cover of using them as humanitarian aid for Syrian orphans. In addition to financing the activities of terrorist fighters, part of the funds were used to cover the costs of a school for orphaned children, which is involved in training future terrorist fighters.

The school focused on radicalising, providing combat training and encouraging orphans to continue the terrorist activities of their parents killed in combat.Europol was involved in the case since its early stages, facilitating the information exchange and providing operational analysis support. Europol’s European Counter Terrorism Centre (ECTC) will also support the analysis of the digital evidence seized during the action day.    .
