The Syrian mercenaries were first transported to Libya from Turkey after Ankara reached an agreement with the Government of National Accord (GNA) forces to provide them military assistance through their cooperation agreement.
Since then, thousands of Syrian mercenaries have been deployed to Libya, with some sources claiming up to 17,000 transferred from Turkey to the North African nation.
