Turkey Deployed 27,000 Syrian Militants, Jihadists In Libya: Monitoring Group

Illustrative image.

Turkey has been deploying Syrian militants and jihadists of different nationalities in Libya to support the Government of National Accord (GNA), the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) revealed in a report on August 1.

According to the London-based monitoring group, a new batch of Syrian militants and jihadist arrived in Libya in the last few days.

The SOHR estimates that Turkey has deployed more than 17,000 Syrian militants, including 350 children, in Libya so far. At least 6,000 of them returned to Syria in the recent few months after receiving the full payment.

“Turkey continues to bring more factions’ fighters, mercenaries, to its camps and train them,” the SOHR’s report reads.

Besides deploying its Syrian proxies, Turkey also transported around 10,000 Jihadists of different nationalities to fight for the GNA in Libya. At least 2,500 of them are Tunisian.

Turkey began sending Syrian militants and jihadists to Libya last year. This step boosted the offensive capabilities of the GNA and allowed its forces to repel the Libyan National Army attack on the capital, Tripoli.

These achievements came at a high cost for Syrian militants. According to the SOHR, 481 Syrians were killed in Libya. 34 of them were under the age of 18.

Turkey appears to be determined to increase its military presence in Libya. Recent reports revealed that Ankara is planning to establish permanent bases for its forces in the Arab country.

    I think they are trying to get rid of them throwing them into the meatgrinder.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Yes, I wondered about that.
      Is there a Quid Pro Quo somewhere?

      • Lone Ranger

        Maybe the SAA and Russia will let Turkey keep north idlib so they can keep the PKK in check.
        In return Turkey is sending the wahabinazis into the grinder.
        Just an idea…

        • Jens Holm

          Finally I agree some. It makes sense Turks has taken that much and by negosiations fx keep half.

        • FlorianGeyer

          Yes, that was my 1st possibility.
          If that is the plan it would be for a smaller area though I think.
          Perhaps the access to an Ottoman memorial on the border with Afrin and about 7 miles from the current Turkish/Idlib border ,I think.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Israel and ISIS militaries combined have failed to successfully
        confront or even put a dent in the Axis of Resistance shield and
        military advancement, so it now falls on Turkey’s army and its Muslim
        Brotherhood global proxies to take on this role. Here America would be
        strategically foolish itself to take on the Axis of Resistance on the
        battlefield, as it will find itself in a quagmire deeper than Vietnam
        when it is needing to withdraw from the region to address the rapid rise
        of Chinese power.

        So Turkey’s pick makes perfect geostrategic sense to Pax Americana.

        Moreover, regarding Israel’s security, Turkey could come in through
        the north of Lebanon to rescue Israel if need be, thus sandwiching the
        Lebanon and Hezbollah tight between the Israeli military in the south
        and the unleashed post-Ottoman army in the north. This is very
        desirable for the Israeli military architects.

          1) ” So Turkey’s pick makes perfect geostrategic sense to Pax Americana.”
          2) ” the north of Lebanon to rescue Israel if need be, ”
          Ιn short, you are telling us that Turkey does all this with the full support of the US and Israel ?? Absolutely logical … I always said that Turkey has strong backs

          • Zionism = EVIL

            You are quick study and pick up geo-strategic trends fast. As I posted many times before Turkey is a third world Islamist dictatorship and there is no way it can act on several fronts from Azerbaijan to Libya without its Americunt and Zionist masters support. The Americunts are offering it full financial, political, military and intelligence support. Unless Egypt form quick alliance with Iran, Syria, Algeria and Iraq it is the next target of Zionists.

            It is obvious that this is not a city but a state company with an initial area of 26,500 square kilometers and with absolute self-determination. The word Tabuk is directly related to the Biblical “Earth (s) Madiam” in popular parlance as a result of the Biblical catastrophe that once occurred there. The name NEOM is definitely a linguistic hybrid and as they say it comes from the Greek word Neo and M which they say is the word Mousa ta Kaballa, meaning “Meeting Moses”. And when we say these, we mean the Jews who will be the official managers of the multinational company NOEM.Yes iam a quick study boy xa xa xa

      • Zionism = EVIL

        He is a Americunt and Zionist agent. This is all part of their strategy to divide the region as the divide cancer proved too small and too weak. Turkey is now their mercenary army.

        Also, importantly, the US bringing Turkey closer into its fold gives
        the Pentagon unfettered marine access to neighboring Russia: Turkey here
        being a mere marine hop away from Russian waters and its mainland.
        It certainly appears to make geopolitical and military sense for the
        US to choose Turkey as policeman and police dog at this time, but, who
        guards the dog?

      • Hatersgonnahate

        Ungrateful , go and fight in Syria.

        • Furkan Sahin

          yes i want :) but i dont know how go to syria and fight

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Unfortunately, the Turkeys are Americunts new policeman in the region and partners in the theft of natural resources.

      Being a member of NATO, it can call on NATO’s army to assist it in
      any major military challenges it may face from the Axis of Resistance
      and other regional upstarts, be they in Iraq, Syria or even in Egypt.
      After all, who better suppress the Arabs than the Arabphobic Ottomans
      with their 400 years experience in Arab oppression? The Turks certainly
      have a much larger army than Israel, and their air force is not exactly
      made of paper-mâché. The Turkish Deep State has no problem standing in
      the frontlines of battles against Arab nations (and Iran!) while a
      geopolitically weak Israel steals more Arab land for Greater Israel, so
      long as a Turkish Empire can possibly re-emerge out of this equation.
      Israelis are desperate to weaken their Arab and Iranian foes, and seeing
      that neither Wahabism nor the IDF can no longer be relied on to do
      this, so… enters the Turkish army, backed by NATO if need be, to do just
      that for them.

      2- Unlike Israel, Turkey can call upon its vast cache of local and
      global Muslim Brotherhood militias and institutions to repress and
      challenge the Axis of Resistance wherever it may be needed. Turkey has
      no problem losing Iran and Russia as allies over this as it will be
      rewarded with expanded trade deals with Europe and the US instead – and
      here the prospect of reviving a new Ottoman Empire at the cost of Arab
      losses is just impossible for Erdogan and the Turkish Deep State to
      resist.

    As a fertilizer they could also work, they would help make those lands fatter and more arable.

    • Jens Holm

      Its might bee needed. The climate change will give even less rain as well as Turks use more and more water from Eufrat, Tigris and Khabour river.

      So far there are 550.000 fertilizers.

    That must be including the local Turkish big minority there. Most of them by that are not deployed at all.

  • Icarus Tanović

    Wahhabi Erdogan is only looking for troubles, and 27.000 Syrian in Lybia is Sohr bull. It may be 6 or 7ooo, but not that much.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      And should Turkey do anything that upsets Israel while policing the
      mideast, the supremely harsh stick would be the cutting off of all
      existing trade deals with American and Europe, plus massive US sanctions
      that would quickly sink the Turkish Lira, as indeed the US had
      intentionally dabbled with last year. And, worst of all sticks would be
      the US’s public support and mass funding of Kurdish groups inside of
      Turkey: a color revolution designed to unseat Erdogan and his party, as
      well as throw the Turkish nation into a sudden tailspin of internal
      unrest and mass violence.

      Summarized, with the choice of Turkey, you will have a trio of
      Arabphobes ruling and policing the middle east: the US, Israel and
      Turkey. Turkey taking the position of the front lines, backed by the
      US, and commanded by Tel Aviv.

      To conclude, Turkey is the US and Israel’s new ISIS.

    There is a very good analysis on Plato’s Guns by Taxi on Turkey is the new Americunt attack dog in the region and every action is controlled by its Americunt masters. It is worth reading and close to what I have been posting over the years. Hopefully, SF could form a partnership with Plato’s Guns like it has done with Saker, which is also pretty much on the ball along with Pepe Escobar.
    America Chooses a New Mideast Policeman
    by Taxi

    Running out of time, and desperate to gather focus
    and forces to fast pivot east to confront a rapidly rising Chinese
    superpower, America is currently arranging for its exit from the Middle
    East in a way that militarily secures its allies and proxies there,
    especially that of Israel. Naturally, it has to pick a top dog from its
    kennel of allies to police the region in its absence, and pick one,
    indeed, it has.

    Turkey.

    Not Israel.

    This is explains the wanton and brazen geostrategic moves that Turkey
    has been making of late in Iraq, in Syria, in Lebanon, in Yemen, in
    Libya, in Algeria and even in Greece: all seemingly with America’s
    approval.

    Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the Gulf nations and Israel have all been
    side-stepped for this lauded position and the crown has been handed over
    to Turkey. Turkey: the global capital of the Muslim Brotherhood.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Turkey since the end of the Ottoman Empire has been a western cannon fodder state to destroy the Arab world and also fight Russia. Now it is trying with full Americunt and Zionist support to grab Libyan, Syria and Iraqi oil fields and extend its destabilization all the way from Yemen to Tunisia and in the Caucasus it is militarily supporting corrupt cowardly Azerbaijan pimps against Armenia, which so far has held its own.
