BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 A.M.) – The Free Syrian Army (FSA) met with Turkish officials and the Syrian opposition’s interim government in the northeastern countryside of Aleppo, Tuesday, to discuss several topics.

Among the topics discussed between the parties were the handing over of all border-crossings to the interim government and the formation of a national army.

The parties all agreed to hand over the border-crossings to the interim government and to form the national army from the existing groups in the Euphrates Shield forces.

The national army will consist of two large rebel factions: the Sultan Murad Legion and Levant Legion.

Both groups will first hand over their weapons and vehicles to the Syrian interim government.

“..interim government and the formation of a national army ”
It’s good and healthy to dream.
But taking into account the situation of the Syrian army and allies, stronger than ever, and analyzing the performance of the FSA without even the slightest talent for combat, with its multiple previous failures to achieve anything,
I doubt that it is more than a dream, these strange plans for the future of the FSA.
And the bad thing about dreaming is to wake up and realize that it was only a dream and a very stupid one, i fear.

Post-ISIS, it’s an excuse for the Turks to continue their presence in Syria and on the part of the FSA just plain survival. Note they didn’t include the SDF as part of a “national” government.
In any case, not legitimate both at a national level and with the UN. It’ll be interesting to see the Russian take on this.

These stupid FSA doesnt realize that they are just becoming a pawn in the hands of Turkey. Turkey is more worried out the Kurds and with the support from USA it is possible that Turkey fears Kurds will become… Read more »

Hey! Is it OK if I come over and set up the Jim Graham Interim Syrian Government? A few miles along the Euphrates will do. I like fishing. No chance.
