BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:25 P.M.) – Russia’s RIA Novosti quoted informed sources in the Syrian opposition that said 93 Syrian mercenaries were killed in the Karabakh clashes recently, prompting a new batch to be sent to Azerbaijan from Turkey.

One of the sources told the agency that “the bodies of 53 mercenaries were transferred to Syria on Sunday … thus, the total death toll of Syrian mercenaries reached 93.”

The source said that a third batch of Syrian mercenaries, including 430 members, left for the conflict zone in Karabakh at the end of last week.

Another source in the Syrian opposition stated that by October 1, there were 322 “well-equipped” Syrian mercenaries in Karabakh.

Earlier, French President Emmanuel Macron said that 300 Syrian militants were transported via the Turkish city of Gaziantep to Baku.

Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev demanded Macron apologize for his comments about the Syrian militants, as he once again denied their presence inside the country.

Meanwhile, the Russian Foreign Ministry had expressed Moscow’s concern about the transfer of armed men from illegal organizations to the conflict zone in Karabakh.

Erdogan, in pursuit of his lust for Power & influence, is sending thousands of unsuspecting fools, to their death and in the process causing deaths & misery in the region.

Propaganda can fool only common people not World leaders. They have their own ‘eyes & ears’ on ground and know facts from fiction.
