As the Syrian mercenaries’ return from Libya still suspended | Fighters continue falsifying medical reports and paying bribes, as they try to return

The return of Syrian mercenaries from Libya is still suspended, whether Turkish-backed “mercenaries”, or those who were recruited by the Russian “Wagner” company and sent to Libya.

SOHR sources say that only a small number of mercenaries have returned to Syria, after they provided medical reports and falsified some of them by bribing the leaders of Turkish-backed factions, amid widespread discontent among the Turkish-backed “mercenaries” in Libya, as their return to Syria still suspended since March 25, about five weeks ago since the return of last batch of fighters, after a complete suspension of the return of these mercenaries since mid-November.

Reliable SOHR sources say that fighters of Turkish-backed factions, who are in Libya, are paying bribes to doctors in order to falsify medical reports enabling them to return to Syria, as their return still suspended. Some fighters used this trick, which has already been used where a full batch of fighters managed to return by this way before.

Now, however, only few fighters have returned using this trick and in individually.

Meanwhile, the return of mercenaries is still suspended despite agreements, appeals and calls.
