BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 A.M.) – Four rebel groups have disbanded to join one of the largest Turkish-backed factions in northern Syria, opposition activists reported on Tuesday.

According to the reports, the four rebel groups that makeup Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki have joined the Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) Al-Sham Regiment in the Afrin region of northwest Aleppo.

This move comes just a few weeks after the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham seized the entire western countryside of the Aleppo Governorate and most of the Idlib province.

Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki was one of the major rebel groups that fought the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies in Aleppo before they lost their positions in the city and the province’s countryside.

With Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki joining Faylaq Al-Sham, the aforementioned rebel group is now one of the most powerful rebel factions in northern Syria.

The children+handicapped people beheaders now dissolve in order to not end facing what they deserve, meeting their Doom. Thus, seems that Qatar is no more aligned with Turkey… Or maybe both of ’em don’t manage to control their ghazis anymore?
This is the big point with extremists : they aren’t reliable at all…

@Daeshbags-Sux, isn’t the Sultan the ally of Qatar?

They merely formalized their new contract.
Create Norther Cyprus 2.0 in Syria.

p.s. Middle East Eye claims that the KSA, UAE, Egypt and Israel have formed a alliance that will support the Kurds against Turkey. They consider the Sultanate of Turkey not the Mullahnate of Iran the biggest challenge for their common strategic economic and military interests.

@ Stern Daler, Turkey is definitely trying to get an upper hand no doubt about that. KSA was earlier more worried about Iran and tried to bring Iran to heel through the unrest in Syria & Yemen and it didn’t succeed. KSA also tried to bring to heel Qatar and it didn’t work out too. Iran & Russia recently had a meeting with Turki. Situation is Northern Syria is very fluid & dynamic, scenarios keeps changing.

Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki (decapitador de niños) es bienvenido por Erdogan…
La pregunta es para Putín ¿Por qué no se da cuenta que Erdogan es reponsable del terrorismo ?
