Turkey Deploys More Syrian Militants In Libya As Many Return In Coffins

Turkey has deployed dozens more Syrian militants in Libya, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) revealed on April 23.

“Turkey continues to transfer mercenaries to Libya to fight alongside the National Accord Government (GNA) in its battles with the Libyan National Army (LNA) … The Syrian Observatory has monitored the arrival of a new batch of dozens of fighters from pro-Ankara factions to Libya,” the monitoring group said in a report.

According to the UK-based monitoring group, the total number of Syrian militants deployed in Libya has risen to 5,300. Around 2,100 others are currently receiving training in Turkey ahead of deployment.

Meanwhile, more and more Syrian militants return from Libya in coffins. In the last few days only, at least nine were killed while they were fighting on the side of the Turkish-backed GNA.

The SOHR revealed that a total of 199 Turkish-backed Syrian militants have been killed in Libya, so far. The number is expected to grow in the coming weeks as the Syrian militants are playing a growing role in GNA forces’ operations.

The deployment of Syrian militants, which began in late 2019, allowed GNA forces to hold onto their positions around the Libyan capital, Tripoli. Now, GNA forces are carrying offensive operations with support from the Syrian militants.

‘Syrian militants’ = non-Syrians that Turkey encouraged to go to Syria for some head-chopping and land theft, but are no longer needed there because they keep losing their stolen territory in Idlib. Turkey doesn’t want them coming back to Turkey and chopping any Turkish heads there, so it sends them off to Libya to chop Libyans’ heads off to steal their land. Once the GNA falls, the surviving head-choppers will be working their way back to Ankara to look for Erdogan and demand their back pay – in USD, not Turkish lira.

Clever girl ?

So you think it’s really in Turkish citizen’s best interests to steal land/resources by supporting head-choppers? When the criminal Erdogan clan is done ass-raping Turkey for all the money possible and they flee to some ‘safe’ foreign country to live out their life in wealth and luxury when the Turkish economy collapses, are you still going to think it was a good idea? Turks are not stupid – they know what’s happening. They just can’t do anything about it.


Erdogan needs to tried and convicted for exploiting poor and destitute Syrians and other Salafist desperadoes and fanning regional conflict and terrorism.

fayez chergui

how can they be militant if they are in Libya?

Furkan Sahin

because they is terrorist

John Wallace

Sorry they should have been referred too as pacifists instead. They have gone there too pacify one group of militants attacking another group .
A militant can’t exist in Libya because militants favour confrontational or violent methods in support of a political or social cause and none of that exists in Libya .


Turkish terrorists is the apt description.

Zionism = EVIL

These stupid dumbass morons should be killing the bastard Turkeys in Syria for destroying their country and preying on human misery by exploiting these illiterate Wahhabi arseholes to go die in Libya, a land they have no knowledge or even any interest. The goat fucker Erdogan is sending this cannon fodder to die in Libya while the MIT cunts who hire these morons hide in 5 star hotels in Tripoli.

Assad must stay

would be hilarious if the militants find out where they are staying and smash thier doors in hahahaha

Daily Beatings

Roaches check in, but they do check out… permanently I guess.
