Nearly 145 Jihadist Mercenaries Killed in Azerbaijan, Several fighters Return to Syria Fleeing Violent Battles
According to SOHR source, the raging battles in Nagorno-Karabakh are so violent, with Syrian mercenaries directing the military operations on the frontlines, placing extreme pressure and stress on them. In this context, reliable sources have informed SOHR that several fighters have given up, foregone their payments, and returned to Syria, fleeing the ongoing fierce clashes.
SOHR activists have documented further fatalities among Syrian mercenaries involved in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The death toll among the Turkish-backed factions has risen, since the Turkish government sent them to the frontlines, to at least 143 dead, including 92 fighters whose bodies were brought to Syria while the rest of bodies remained in Azerbaijan.
Reliable SOHR sources had confirmed that the Turkish government and its intelligence service continued recruiting Syrian mercenaries to throw them into the military operations in Nagorno-Karabakh region alongside Azerbaijani forces in their conflict with the Armenians. “The recruitment operations are being conducted in complete secrecy to avoid any potential reactions by the international community regarding the ‘recruitment of mercenaries’ law” said the sources.
