Turkey Suspends Support To One its Syrian Proxy Groups For Refusing To Send Fighters To Libya

Turkey has suspended support to Faylaq al-Rahman, one of its proxy groups in Syria, for refusing to send militants to Libya, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on April 24.

According to the UK-based monitoring group, the so-called Syrian National Army (SNA), an umbrella group for Turkish proxies, ordered Faylaq al-Rahman to prepare lists of militants willing to go fight for the Government of National Accord (GNA) in Libya more than two months ago.

However, Faylaq al-Rahman’s commanders didn’t fulfill the order. The SNA quickly responded by halting all support for the group.

“The SNA’s response was to halt salaries for Faylaq al-Raman [fighters] two months ago, food and ammunition shares were also reduced,” the SOHR’s report reads.

The SOHR noted that few militants of Faylaq al-Rahman went to fight for the GNA in Libya, despite the rejection of their commanders.

Faylaq al-Rahman was one of the largest groups operating around the capital, Damascus. The group, which received support from the U.S, is infamous for its radical views. Up until its defeat by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in 2018, the group was allied with al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS).

Turkey began deploying Syrian militants in Libya last year to support GNA forces, which are facing a large-scale attack by the Libyan National Army (LNA). So far, a total of 199 Syrian militants have been killed in Libya.

Assads dont do it. Why should somebody else not be allowed to try:(

I agree with those Jihadists. Turks should be in the fronline in Libya themselves. Its undertstandable those morons only will do local fightings.


Those are just Russia’s friends. Let them continue with their cease fire agreement which brings only benefits to Turkey and its terrorists.

Suddenly being a terrorists isn’t so enjoyable. Did the group honestly think that they were valued by the Turkish admin?

Soon these people will have nowhere to go other than Allah’s virgin depot. At least they won’t starve, as they always have the locals to steal from. :)


I predict a sudden attempt at rapprochement with the SAA

Very soon the only remaining jihadists in Syria will be the 2,800 turdish-ottoman retard troops.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
