Turkey Supplies Its Proxies in Northern Aleppo with MANPADs (Photo, Map)

The recently appeared photo shows two fighters of the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA) with the Chinese-made FN-6 man portable air defence system (MANPAD) in the northern part of Syrian province of Aleppo.

FSA units, operating under the banner of the Operation Euphrates Shield, receive supplies and are embeded with the Turkish army and Special Forces. So, they have been hardly able to obtain this modern surface-to-air missile without order from their mastermind in Ankara.

If supplies of MANPADs to the FSA in northern Syria are confirmed, it will be an important signal that Turkey is considering the plan of military confrontation with the Syrian military after the seizure of key town of al-Bab from ISIS.

    I said from the beginning that, that dog in Ankara can’t be trusted, I think it is high time for someone to teach that wannabe sultan a good lesson in international law, the hard way.

    Whoever thought the Turks were anything but scheming and duplicitous?

    Seems like SAA/Kurd Al Bab path died as soon as SDF Raqqa invasion started… Kurds are still being played and they kinda like it.

    I looks like the russina gas passing by Turk territory has freezed out any Russian declaration against Turky. Turky can do whatever it likes on Syria ¿ doesn’t it ? I wander whether or not Russia is willing to push away Turky from Syria land.
