SOHR reveals | Turkish security companies transfer Syrian mercenaries to Azerbaijan, total number of fighters now in Azerbaijan increases to 850, and death toll jumps to three
Very reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that a new batch of 530 Syrian mercenaries has been transferred to Azerbaijan by private Turkish security companies, bringing the number of Syrian fighters in Azerbaijan to 850, while preparations for the transfer of more mercenaries in the coming hours and days are underway.
On the other hand, SOHR has documented further fatalities among the mercenaries of Ankara-backed factions in Azerbaijan. The death toll of the Syrian fighters of the “National Army” factions has risen to three.
SOHR was the first to break the news that Turkish-backed Syrian mercenaries were sent to join the battles in Azerbaijan, while their sole mission was supposed to be “protecting the oil fields”.
Yesterday, very reliable SOHR sources confirmed that reports circulated by media outlets considering Turkey’s transfer of nearly 4,000 fighters of Turkish-backed Syrian factions to Azerbaijan in order to join the war against Armenia were completely false.
The sources have confirmed that the number of Turkish-backed Syrian mercenaries in Azerbaijan approximates 320, and they have been transported by Turkish security companies. It is worth noting that these fighters have not participated in any battles so far.
“Most of the Syrian fighters sent to Azerbaijan are of Turkmen descent, and they went to Azerbaijan under the pretext of ‘defending the national cause’, while the Turkish-backed Arab factions refused to send their fighters to Azerbaijan,” SOHR sources added.
On the other hand, reliable sources have informed SOHR that Armenian-born Syrian fighters were transported to Armenia to join the war there on the side of Armenia against Azerbaijan.
