Turkish Proxy Fighters Continue To Suffer Casualties In Libya

Illustrative image

Dead bodies of three Syrian militants killed while fighting in Libya have arrived to the Turkish-occupied part of northern Syria, the Step News Agency reported on January 10.

The three slain militants were a part of a large proxy force deployed by Turkey in Libya to support the Government of National Accord (GNA), which is facing a large attack by the Libyan National Army (LNA).

“One of these three dead was from the Mu’tasim Division and was buried in Marea in the northern countryside of Aleppo, and the other two are from the Sultan Murad Division and were buried in the city of al-Bab,” the Step News Agency’s reporter said.

A military source familiar with the matter told the pro-opposition news agency that dozens of other Syrian militants and Turkish service members were injured during clashes with the LNA. According to the source, the wounded personnel are receiving medical treatment in the Libyan capital, Tripoli.

The UK-based Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) revealed a day earlier that more than 1,250 Syrian militants have been deployed in Libya, so far.

Turkey, which began sending its Syrian proxies to Libya last month, is intensified its support for the GNA. However, the situation on the ground appears to be only getting worse for GNA forces, with the LNA advancing on several fronts.

Still, not to worry eh?

Throwing these mercenaries under a LNA bus will mean less of them will end up in Turkey as Turkish citizens. Seems like a win win.


Not really. Those are loyal mercenaires of Erdogans, just like his Ottoman precedecors had their hordes of mercs.
They are valuable for Erdogan in his plan to rebuild an empire on the bones of his neigbours countries. And also valuable in internal Turkish politics to strengthen his power.

Every one lost is a loyal merc lost. And this does not affect the millions of pro-“Opposition”/Jihadi/Erdogan “Refugees” in Turkey. And Erdogan can always and will send them to EU and Germany anyway as soon as Merkel stops paying ransom to Erdogan.
So, every dead is a loss to Erdogan, and therefore is a gain for anyone opposing Jihadi+Muslim Brother influence.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

SANA had a report on just how loyal Erdogan’s proxies going to Syria are, they’re avoiding conscription in Al Hasakah for fear of being sent to Libya, not lining up to go there, they’re not loyal troops at all according to SANA.
As bad as Syria’s been for atrocious behaviour Libya is far worse, that place is a true hell on earth and all the terrorists being sent there know it.
I’m afraid the Russians have let the Muslim Brotherhood in now, their capitulation to Erdogan has made removing them impossible, without Russian backing the US and Turkey will intensify their efforts big time, which is a real kick in the guts from Putin.

US is not supporting GNA.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

The US and UN have both officially recognized the GNA, the US currently aides the Libyan government with both monetary aid and diplomatic support, but it doesn’t do that for the rival government.
Trumps been trying to avoid any military contribution [air support/no fly zone] or any further financial commitments for the Libyan government [Trump has no love for the Muslim Brotherhood], but he has recently requested that the leader of the LNA [who’s a US citizen], make peace with the GNA and come to terms with the officially recognized government, and now Putin’s just done exactly the same thing too.
The US is supporting the GNA, because if they recognize the GNA over it’s rival, and they have diplomatic relations with the government, and also offer them monetary aid, what other term would you suggest I use to describe the relationship between the US and the GNA.

Assad must stay


good american

One would think the Syrians would continue their advance in Idlib if the Turks are dividing their proxy forces and sending to Libya.

Mustafa Mehmet

Rest in peace hero freedom fighter


Time to go to Libya urself

Mustafa Mehmet

I did apply for it but they said no no need.. waiting for call

Willing Conscience (The Truths

You won’t be waiting long, because between desertions and high casualties rates, the turnover rate will be lightning fast.
Just don’t get captured whatever you do, I hear the LNA are really making the Turks proxies scream like babies when they torture and dismember them, far better to avoid that.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

Rest in pieces don’t you mean.

Mustafa Mehmet


Willing Conscience (The Truths

Sorry Mustafa,
I think you’re on the wrong side of the war but my response to you commiseration was stupid, I’m sorry I said it, I was trying to be funny and forgot to be respectful when I should’ve been, so sorry again.

Xoli Xoli

This quick ceasefire is to facilitate newly trained Turkey terrorists airlifting to Libya and to allow terrorists to bury killed terrorists in Syria. If both LNA and SAA continue to suppress this illegal ceasefires then Erdogan interference in Syria and Libya will be destroyed.Time to rearm and safe airlifting and land of terrorists both Syria and Libya will be will fail and totally coil.Never allow Erdogan to prolong wars in both countries.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

And he’s in Iraq too remember, so he’s fighting wars in 3 different countries now.


Good plan, Erdogan: send the animals out to support the brotherhood of islam. Always a win; Erdogan can export his bloody tyranny further in the mediterranean see and blackmail the civilised world , if they win there will be at least one other brotherhood country in the world all the others are elliminated, if they lose Erdogan must not give thoes jihad animals the promised Turkish nationality.
