Turkey sent Syrian fighters to Libya for war with PMC Wagner


Ankara turned from words to action and began to transfer to Libya militia groups formed both from members of the so-called Syrian opposition and from among refugees, millions of whom are now in Turkey.


The transfer followed the statement by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that about two thousand Russian mercenaries from the Wagner PMC were fighting in Libya on the side of Haftar.

According to a number of Middle Eastern publications, about 250 people have already arrived in Libya to help PNS units fighting the forces of Haftar.

It is also reported that Turkish intelligence officers are actively negotiating with the field commanders of the Syrian National Army (SNA) on the formation of units of militants who want to fight in Libya.

According to unverified data, the payment of the Syrian "volunteers" who want to fight with the PMC "Wagner" in Libya is two thousand dollars a month.

A video appeared on the network with Syrian fighters, which was allegedly shot in the Tekbali camp freed from Haftar’s forces near Tripoli.
Actually, Turkey’s actions to transfer Syrian militants to Libya are quite logical.


Thus, on the one hand, Ankara is getting rid of active militants, who have become too many during the years of the war in Syria, and on the other, protecting their interests in North Africa with their hands.

      The UN supports the Government of National Unity in Libya, Russia officially supports the Haftar faction, the opposite. Therefore, PMCs are fighting on this side.

          They are mercenaries, fighting for money. If the Haftar faction is not recognized as a territorial organization in Russia, then you can fight on its side. Pity them, in case of their death, it is possible, but not much - because they knew what they were doing.

            Nobody is going to pity them, this is understandable. Just read the Criminal Code, you are writing a gag something ..

              That's right, the Criminal Code of Russia prohibits -

              The recruitment, training, financing or other material support of a mercenary, as well as its use in armed conflict or military operations.

              But the Haftar side “asked Russia to help with advisers” and Russia sent “retired military men” there, who, being in the rear, “help the Haftar army read maps of the theater of operations and plan logistics - when and at what time to deliver field kitchens to fighters, clean linen and garbage can of personnel.

                cmonman This is understandable, I never doubted it. Our retirees are kind, humane, they take Libyan old people across the street, carry little girls out of the fire in their arms, feed the hungry kids with buckwheat porridge, cover them with warm overcoats ....

    It is necessary to declare PMCs a Russian special unit. And then we'll see what Erdogan will do when he meets the regular part of the Russian Army.

    The UN supports the Government of National Unity in Libya, Russia supports the opposite faction.
    From the point of view of Turkey, it is on the side of the UN, and no one can stop or condemn it. And if PMC “Wagner” begins to incur losses, PMC knows / understands what it fights for and dies, they are professionals.

    To whom? If you, then there’s no place for conversation at all. On the forehead, and send away. Tell the other ATTENTIVELY that democracy is not only for penguins, but the same for everyone. Remind forgotten about Yugoslavia.

      Vkd dvk To the "other" democracy lover you can only tell this nonsense here. It is useless to tell this to the UN and the world community.
