Hundreds Of Turkish-Backed Militants Arrive In Western Aleppo (Videos)

Support SouthFront

On January 30, hundreds of Turkish-backed militants deployed in western Aleppo to fight the Syrian Arab Army (SAA). The step is reportedly a result of a breakthrough agreement with al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS).

The militants are members of the Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement, that was expelled from the outskirt of Aleppo city last year by HTS.

Opposition sources released several videos showing the militants heading in large convoys from the Turkish-occupied area of Afrin to western Aleppo.

Enab Baladi, a pro-opposition outlet, revealed that HTS and the Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement, now fighting under the al-Majd Corps, reached an agreement allowing al-Zenki fighters to fight the SAA in western Aleppo during a meeting late on January 29.

Tawfiq Shihab Al-Din, al-Zenki’s former leader, confirmed on Twitter that an agreement was reached with the al-Qaeda-affiliated group.

“An agreement was made between the rebels of the western countryside of Aleppo and HTS, with the mediation of the brothers in Ahrar al-Sham, on the return of the rebels to their positions and their participation in fending off the fierce attack Russian and Iranian militias,” Shihab al-Din said in a tweet.

Last week, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies kicked off a large offensive around Aleppo city. Many areas in the region have been liberated, so far.

The new agreement between al-Zenki and HTS shows how Turkish-backed militants tolerate terrorist groups and even fight on their behalf. All of this happen directly under the eyes of Ankara.

More idiots and cannon fodder.


Lest we forget.

Yes that was a White Helmet that did that. I remember watching the full version of that which showed the person in his white overalls and then when he did this in his terrorist clothes laughing and joking with his comrades. They placed the boy in the back of the truck and drove to another place where this one cut his head off. I found this the end version of rather than try and go back in my history and try and find the original which was uncensored . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kr1YTS-4Hzs&bpctr=1580434104


It was a truly disgusting event that the UK was complicit with as well. UK and US advisers had been training these monsters.

Finally, the al zenki rats come out from the turkish skirt.

Im sure many SAA have been waiting to exterminate the cia sponsored criminals.

Pepperidge farms remembers!

Childbutchers in action..


Western Aleppo will be the most costly cauldron to clean out in the entire area, perhaps Syria seizing Hatay under the “right to defend” doctrine of US & Israel might advance Syrian objectives in Idlib Province?


Just encircle western Aleppo and wait them to come out.


Where’s the artillery when you need it eh


Busy clearing the first wave of rats


Seems to be the same crowd marching around in circles as far as I can tell

Where is the airforce to destroy this devils convoy.

Several choppers would have had nice juicy targets but unfortunately no one was aware this was happening till too late . What damage will they cause before being removed.


Under the eyes of Ankara and the praise of Israel. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c75b54b70b61d144545a9e439599db6e1ec60c6a7c7c95ae54b053a945d299da.jpg


very strong news!!

The rusian must enhance the bombings, they should start using long range bombers and drones aswell. i would the new stealth drones to get some kills.

Toni Liu

Yeah they need to step up their bomb weight too, to make sure no rats left a life inside those building and cave


Oh look, more cannon fodder waiting for virtual virgins up above ! Man, you gotta thank the Islamist sects for keeping their best kept urban legends alive after so many centuries. Think about it, without that “motivational tale”, how on Earth could anyone be able to persuade and push these assholes to line up in troves non-stop, wave after wave of slaughter, persisting one defeat after the other, all of that scum high on Captagon so passionately fast-tracking their way up to their little untouched ladies ? No one but “their” personal Allah has that ability, and we should all thank them in concert. Too good they have never read a page of the Quran, though, as they would be quite surprised on what they should actually do or not do in order to build up their chances and finally grab that ticket for the high heavens ;-)

Is this what we are calling freedom fighters now? Very disrespectful to call them “militants”. If anything, the butcher soldiers are the militants.

J Ramirez

The butcher are the Jews, killing women and children

Toni Liu

Ah fake semite again, its disrespectful too to call palestinian and hizbollah as militant, they are real semite freedom fighter to free the real semite from fake semite like you

Thank god al-Zenki are sending their believers to Aleppo. I did think they were going to escape justice.

Can we now safely assume that there are no ‘moderate terrorists’? when MSM next uses the term, they should be panned for doing so. This sick bunch deserve everything that is waiting for them in Aleppo.


Russia’s surveillance aircraft and satellites provide intelligence – Russia knows where every location, down to a square yard area, each terrorist gangster faction is operating “IN CLEAR SIGHT” for extermination. It is a good thing for the Syrian Armed Forces, Russia & the other Syria allies to rid these terrorist gangster factions now; because they will continue to be a problem in the future sneaking into Syria from Turkey.

I keep pointing out that – Syria’s land mass of 185,180 sq km must be under very strict law enforcement; and Syria’s “whole border length” must have military presence securing and stopping everyone trying enter into Syria (all persons must be checked).


Willing Conscience (The Truths

The Jihadi reinforcements are being sent to western Aleppo to stop any further advances there but the 4th division are already heading south along the M5 highway, and they’re doing it just as the 25th are fighting their way north up the highway, so seems like they want to meet somewhere in the middle and secure the whole length of the highway from Aleppo. Will the newly erected Turkish OB posts be able to stop the 25th divisions advance,I think we’ll find out soon.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
