Syrian mercenaries complain | Practices of Turkish factions leaders and proxies in Libya and Azerbaijan varied from looting salaries to trading drugs

SOHR activists have reported that the majority of Syrian mercenaries still have been asking their leaders to pay their monthly salaries which have been cut after their return from fighting in Libya and the “Nagoni Karabakh” region.

It is worth noting that the leaders of Turkish-backed factions have cut hundreds of thousands of dollars by deducting the last installments that are is estimated at 800 to 1500 US dollars, despite the mercenaries repeating demands to receive the remained payments.

SOHR sources have confirmed that the last batch of salaries for over 10,000 mercenaries have been deducted. Meanwhile, the full monthly salaries of dozens of mercenaries who had been deported to Syria have been cut due to violating military orders and instructions.

Additionally, hundreds of dollars were deducted from each mercenary who has been fighting with Turkey and at least 500 dollars from the mercenaries who came from Libya whose number stood at tens of thousands.

SOHR sources added that Syrian mercenaries have looted shops of jewelry, gold, mobiles, perfumes and many other commodities that are not heavy but more expensive, while faction’s leaders publicly have been trading drugs that are transferred from Turkey as a kind of entertainment for the mercenaries.
