More Syrian Militants Arrive In Libya Despite Mounting Losses

Illustrative image

At least eleven Turkish-backed Syrian militants, including a minor, were recently killed while fighting for the Government of National Accord (GNA) in Libya, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on May 17.

According to the monitoring group, the militants were killed in clashes with the Libyan National Army (LNA) around the capital, Tripoli, and near the city of Misrata. The killed militants were fighting in the ranks of the al-Mu’tasim Brigade, the al-Sultan Murad Brigade, the Northern Hawks Brigade, the al-Hamza Division and the Suleyman Shah Brigade.

The SOHR also dismissed recent reports claiming that Russia is sending Syrian private military contractors to support the LNA.

“There is no truth to what is being promoted through social media about Russia transporting fighters from Deir Ezzor to fight in Libya,” the UK-based group said in its report.

With the recent death of eleven militants, the number of Syrians killed fighting in Libya grew to 289. The SOHR said at least 17 of the casualties were minors.

In spite of the mounting losses, Turkey is deploying more militants in Libya. The current number of Syrians fighting there is 8,950, according to the SOHR. At least 150 of the militants there are aged between 16 and 18.

A recent report by the SOHR revealed that Turkey is recruiting child soldiers to fight in Libya through its proxies, mainly the so-called al-Sultan Murad Brigade.

Syrian militants have failed to make any significant military achievements in Libya so far. Most of them are deployed on hot frontlines around Tripoli, where they sustain serious losses on a regular basis.

      Lets be fair, the US recruits children as early as grade school ( ROTC ), and sends them off to full fledged war at 18 . How is that different ?

        How is recruiting different than stealing ?
        How is proper training different than giving a child a gun and sending it to the front?
        How is being in a regular army with proper training and equipment different than being in a rogue army ?
        Is that what you are asking ?

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Indeed, the disgusting Turkeys are committing child abuse as they are forcibly coercing refugee children from Syria to go die in Libya for oil theft aimed at enriching Turkeys, Italy and NATO cowards. There are confirmed human rights watch reports that the perverted criminal Turkeys also hold the children’s parents hostage and stop food rations if they don’t obey to go to their deaths in Libya.

    Sad., in every war the young are keen to prove their ‘manhood’. Many of these kids were told they would be guarding oil infrastructure at 1500/month, but instead found themselves on the front line.
    War is Hell, the Crime of Crimes.
    Erdogan will pay for his crime of crossing Syria’s border and prolonging the Libyan civil war, sadly
    many Turkish, Syrian and Libyans will also pay.
