(AA) – Factions from the Syrian regime destroyed all the banknotes in the central bank’s branch in Idlib before withdrawing from the city, opposition fighters have claimed.

Opposition sources told The Anadolu Agency that the regime believed destroying the money was preferable to transferring it out of the bank, which could have led to robberies being committed.

 “We found millions of banknotes after we broke into the central bank in Idlib, however the banknotes are not usable because each one had four holes,” Abu Mohammad, a fighter with the Ahrar al-Sham opposition group, told The Anadolu Agency.

Syrian opposition factions, under a single military group named Jeysh al-Fatah, seized full control of Idlib in northern Syria two weeks ago.
