The group, including senior commanders, arrived from Afghanistan via Damascus and Iran, Ha’aretz reported. According to the paper, evidence gathered by intelligence services shows that prior to the Sept. 11 attacks, Syria served as a transit point for Al-Qaida, which also had an infrastructure there.
