151 Turkish-backed Syrian mercenaries killed in Libya battles
Syrian Observatory activists ahs documented a spike in death toll of Turkish-backed Syrian proxies in battles with Libyan National Army in several Libyan areas. Eight fighters were killed in the past few days, some of whom have been shipped to Syria and buried in controlled areas of “Euphrates Shield” factions in Aleppo countryside.
On the other hand, Haftar’s forces captured a Syrian mercenary of those who were sent to Libya by Turkey.
Accordingly, the number of Syrian mercenaries who joined the military operations in Libya and killed there rose to 151. The fatalities are of the factions “al-Mu’tasim Division, Sultan Murad, Suqur Al-Shamal Brigade, Al-Hamzat and Suleiman Shah”.
According to very reliable SOHR sources, the fatalities were killed in clashes on frontlines of Salah Al-Din in the south of Tripoli, Al-Ramlah near Tripoli Airport, Al-Hadabah Project area, Misrata and other areas in Libya.
A few days ago, SOHR sources reported that that Turkey lowered the salaries of Syrian fighters who volunteered to engage the war in Libya, as their number exceeded 6,000, the number that Turkey requested.
Over the recent period, SOHR sources reported that the number of recruits who arrived in Tripoli up to date rose to nearly 4,750, while nearly 1,900 others arrived in Turkey to undergo training courses.
