Libya’s Al-Yarmouk camp | Leaders of Turkish-backed factions loot half of merce*naries’ salaries
Reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that the command of several Turkish-backed factions, mainly “Sultan Murad” faction, looted the half of salaries supposed to be provided to Turkish-backed mercenaries in Al-Yarmouk camp in Libya.
According to SOHR sources, “Sultan Murad” faction delivered the salaries of six months to the faction’s militiamen in the camp, where every militiaman received 355 TL for each month. Also, militiamen of “Liwaa Al-Majd” faction received the salaries of the past six months, where every militiaman was given 7,500 TL. While “Mohamed Al-Fateh” faction gave every militiamen of the faction a salary of 5,300 TL for the past six months.
SOHR sources have confirmed that the factions’ leaders asked subordinated militiamen to give up the salaries of other six months in return for allowing them to return to Syria, where those militiamen are planned to return to Syria soon. It is worth noting that a militiaman had a stroke, as he could not endure oppression practiced by the factions’ leaders.
In the same context, the leadership of “Sultan Murad” Division arrested over 20 militiamen of the faction in Yarmouk camp, after having refused to receive the half of their payments.
On August 19, SOHR activists reported that Turkey 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.
