The Syrian Free Army’s (FSA) Police announced that its special forces unit had received armored vehicles from Turkey.

Turkey formed “Police and Public Security Forces” after capturing of Al-Bab city in Aleppo province. The main task of these police forces is to secure the Euphrates Shield-held areas in the northern Aleppo countryside, according to the Turkish authorities.

Official photos show that the Police and Public Security Forces have received 14 M1117 Armored Security Vehicles. 12 of which are with turrets armed with 40 mm Mk 19 grenade launcher, and 50 caliber M2HB machinegun. Two othes are modified for “Riot Control” tasks.

The Turkish Army does not have M1117 armored vehicles, which means that Turkey may have obtained these armored vehicles directly from the United States to arm the FSA Police. The Police and Public Security Forces also received a number of motorcycles.

Since its formation, the Police and Public Security Forces have not been able to impose order and law in the Euphrates Shield area. The region is witnessing terrorist attacks, assassinations, and ongoing clashes among different FSA groups, gangs and tribes. Turkey is believed to be working to improve the capabilities of the FSA Police to meet these challenges.

    If you need armoured cars to police an area, that means you do not control it at all.

    Turkey needs to get the hell out of Syria. Shitty as Syria is nowadays, they do not need Turkey to make it even worse.

      Northern Ireland police (gardia) use armoured vehicles to police, and they use them to great effect. I think it is more of a case of who they are using in personnel to police such areas.

        Northern Ireland Police had been called RUC (Royal Ulster Constabulary) and yes they used this kind of mini tanks a for decades.
        But a lot of them had been destroyed with very simple weapons like petrol bombs, small ap-mines or massiv armalite fire.
        if you can´t police some region by nonmilitary presence, you´ll never succeed with his “nice” little “tanks”.

      They need them if there are IEDs being used in places as these are light patrol vehicles and should withstand a blast.

        Withstands blasts from the side. Not so much underbelly.

    the FSA in north Aleppo might be trying to fight through the PKK so they can consolidate with the FSA in Idlibstan which will create a whole new front for the SAA which then Aleppo is at a risk of falling to the hands of the Jihadists again

      Dont worry, this fucking islamist faschists will just die. With mini tanks, with turkish support, or without, they will just die. ;-)
