The head of Federal intelligence service of Germany, Gerhard Schindler said "the Syrian rebels" making war with the government of Syria, increasingly come under the influence of terrorists from al-Qaeda.

"Terrorist structures close to al-Qaeda have successfully operated in Syria. Particularly, it comes to thousands of fighters from Jabhat al-Nusra whose role in the armed confrontation is becoming more and more important," said Gerhard Schindler in an interview to Bild.

Meanwhile, according to intelligence reports, the extremists are a minority in the ranks of Bashar al-Assad's opponents. According to the head of the German intelligence service, "the rebel movements are extremely heterogeneous and small in size."
