Number Of Turkish-Backed Syrian Fighters In Libya Passes 2,400 – Report

Meet the former US-supported FSA, now Turkish-backed FSA, who are committing the same war crimes in Syria they’ve been for years.

The number of Syrian fighters deployed by Turkey in Libya to support the Government of National Accord (GNA) has risen to 2,400, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on January 19.

The London-based monitoring group revealed that 1,700 other Syrian fighters, who are now receiving military training in Turkey, will be deployed in Libya soon.

Fighters of the so-called Syrian National Army (SNA) are being transported by civilian planes from Turkey’s Gaziantep, to Istanbul and from there to Libya. These flights are not being registered, according to the SOHR.

“The planes are moving as fake domestic flights … so no evidence of arrivals can be found if the International Court wanted to open an investigation on the matter,” the SOHR’s report reads.

A day earlier, Syrian activists shared a video on social media showing dozens of Syria fighters aboard an airliner of the Afriqiyah Airways, allegedly heading to the Libyan capital, Tripoli.

During the last two months, Turkey stepped up its support for the GNA, which is facing a large-scale attack by the Libyan National Army (LNA). Army troops are now a few kilometers away from Tripoli’s city center, advancing slowly but surely.

    Haftar and his Libyan troops will drive these mercenaries back into the sea.
    Libya will be on its feet again.

      As if Haftars troops are professional soldiers…Do you know how long it took LNA to take Benghazi and Dara?
      These FSA Mercenaries are probably better trained and are better experienced from Syrian war then any ordinary LNA Militia and Soldiers (excluding Russian mercenaries which were pulled back by Russia).
      These troops were the main troops conquering El Bab, Afrin, Tal Abyad and Ras al Ayn, they were trained by Turkish Special Forces and are experienced in Urban Warfare and Battle Hardened.
      This will not be a easy Ride for LNA…

        TURKISH SPECIAL FORCES ARE PUSSIES…………..AHAHAAAAAA,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

        • Ayman

          Ok, so no need to worry Turkey sending more in…

      • Ronald

        While I’m sure what you say is correct, there is no easy ride in war.

        Still the difference is the LNA are fighting for their country, and the FSA are just mercenaries.

      It is a shame that Turkey is destroying the Sunni youth in the Arab world for its own insidious agenda. I was reading a education report for the region and now over 100 million children and college age youth are uneducated and have no hope. These brainwashed Salafist idiots are willing to sell their pathetic lives for $2000 a month in Libya and $600 in Syria. It is is quite disgusting.
