For not getting paid | Syrian mercenaries call to organize demonstrations inside Al-Yarmouk camp in Libya

SOHR activists have reported that Turkey has stopped paying the Syrian mercenaries in Al-Yarmouk camp inside Libya for the 5th consecutive month, amid calls to organize demonstrations against the Turkish state for not being paid.

According to reliable SOHR sources, fear has spread among members of the “National Army” inside Al-Yarmouk camp in Libya in areas held by the Libyan Government of National Accord, regarding the events that took place in “Euphrates Shield” areas held by Turkish forces.

SOHR sources confirmed that the Syrian mercenaries are aiming to organize demonstrations against the latest actions of Turkey, especially regarding reconciliation with the Syrian regime, and failing to pay Syrian mercenaries.

On July 2, reliable sources informed SOHR that the Yarmouk camp which houses Syrian mercenaries of Turkish-backed “national army” in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, is witnessing an escalation of disagreements between National Army members as they are prevented from taking vacations to Syria and mercenaries’ back-and-forth operation are halted.

It is worth noting that many Syrian mercenaries had been in Libyan camps for about two years without being returned under back operations to Syrian territory.

Syrian Observatory sources confirmed escalating differences between “Al-Sultan Murad” and “Souqur Al-Shamal” members as their leaders continue to steal their salaries and also being not offered food allowances.

Two National Army members fled the camp, in coordination with smugglers, and entered Algeria illegally in order to reach Europe, but Turkish intelligence arrested the brother of a fugitive to pressure the fugitive to return to Libya.
