Translated: Disturbing news from Al-Arabiya online newspaper.
A source tells the online newspaper that thousands of Syrian mercenaries, who were trained by Turkey in their time and later sent to Libya, may be heading back to Europe.
Turkey had made a promise that mercenaries could return to Turkey, but the Turks prefer to go to northern Syria, occupied by Turkey and other Syrian mercenaries.
Al-Arabiya writes that according to sources from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (based in London) that the broken promise has triggered great anger among mercenaries because they live under very poor conditions in Libya. Turkey had also promised a monthly salary of $ 5.000, but it has not been paid.
There are about 6.630 of these mercenaries in Libya, who are the remains of IS, Al-Qaeda, Al-Nusra, the ‘so-called’ Syrian Liberation Army and other terrorist organizations. These mercenaries are financed and governed by Turkey. They all participated in the occupation of Kurdish cities and villages in northern Syria, terrorizing the defenseless civilians, robbing them of their houses and carrying out daily terrorist operations, kidnapping people, arbitrary executions, rape of women; all this with Turkey’s blessing.
Turkey has had a leading role in the civil war in Libya for the past few years, and they supported a rebellion against the elected government, which came to after Gaddafi’s fall in 2011.
