Turkish-backed mercenaries | 6700 fighters return from Libya to Syria so far, after completing duration of their contracts
Reliable SOHR sources have confirmed that a new batch of Turkish-backed mercenaries have returned from Libya to Syria, after completing the duration of their contracts, as they were fighting in Libya on the side of the “Government of National Accord”.
The recently-returned batch comprised nearly 450 mercenaries, who were transported to “Mu’aytayqah” international airport in Libya’s capital, Tripoli, then they were taken to the Turkish city of Istanbul, and finally sent to areas under the control of Turkish-backed factions in Aleppo countryside.
According to SOHR statistics, the number of recruits who arrived in Libya rose to nearly 17,420 Syrian mercenaries, including 350 children under the age of 18, of whom 6,700 returned to Syria after completing the duration of their contracts and receiving their financial dues. Meanwhile, Turkey has been recruiting more mercenaries, bringing them to Turkish territory to undergo military training.
It is worth noting that the number of jihadists who were transported from Syria to Libya reached 10,000, of whom there were 2,500 Tunisians.
