Turkey stopped funding Syrian rebels because it refused to go to Libya
“Turkey has stopped funding the jihadist Faylaq Al-Rahman of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) because it did not send its members to Libya to assist the forces of the National Agreement Government. (GNA) based in Tripoli, ”SOHR quoted a reliable source as saying.
According to the source, the grant has been suspended at the behest of Turkey-backed Syrian National Army (SNA) leaders.
Earlier, the SNA had asked the Faylaq Al-Rahman group to provide a list of their fighters to send to Libya to fight with the GNA at Turkey’s orders. However, the Faylaq Al-Rahman commanders did not prepare the list, and this led to Ankara deciding to stop funding the rebel group.
It is known that Faylaq Al-Rahman militants arrived in Libya after being recruited by Turkey, but according to recent sources in Libya, it seems that many Syrian mercenaries do not want to go there.
Faylaq Al-Rahman, previously fought against the Syrian armed forces in the Eastern Ghouta region of Damascus and Homs, is currently being deployed in parts of northwestern Syria.
