Over 3,000 more Turkish-backed militants have entered northern Syria from the Turkish territory in order to take part in the Turkish-led military operation in the country. Reports say the group of militants entered Syria through the Turkish town of Qaqamshi.

Now, the number of Turkish-backed militants involved in the Operation Euphrates Shield are about 5,000.

Earlier today the Turkish-led forces have reached the the Sajur River, capturing a number of villages from the predominantly Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and are continuing to advance southwest of Jarabulus.

    From where the hell do they draw their manpower from?It looks endless.
    If they took men from Idlib and nearby regions, it should weaken their positions a bit(maybe even a lot), considering that 3k men isn’t no small amount

      Muslims have a lot of kids. They don’t worry about feeding them. Allah takes care of it.

    Who are these ‘Turkish backed militants’? From where are they from and what’s their ideology? Are they jihadis? Turks? Mercenaries?

      They’re the ISIS guys that ran away from the SDF and Manbij a couple of weeks ago. They get a free shave, a fresh Turkish army uniform, an al Nusra/al Zinki ID card and a U.S. paycheck. Then it’s right back to killing Kurds (or recruiting more of their ‘brothers’ in the next town). The others are Turkmen head-choppers looking for a free house/farm in the Turkish Corridor. Erdogan promised them, “If you liberate it, you own it”

          Source is your mama, cunt.

    • The FSA from what I read.
      Ideology?Islamism, “Democracy”, and so on, basically the ideology FSA had before, I don’t think it changed.

      Jihadists?Yeah
      Turks?Backed by them with planes and tanks, and probably men, but I don’t know if there are Turks themselves in FSA itself, but it’s a possibility.
      Mercenaries?Possibly.

    Well Richard the Slav. If this news is true at all – I have to guesses.

    1) ISIS or Nusra recruits are refugees couldnt get a job in Turkey and now they have on or 2) Turks has only closed jarablus temporary and are now letting the waiting list in.
