BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:10 P.M.) – A new video released by Libya Review showed a group of Turkish-backed Syrian mercenaries walking through the capital city of Tripoli.

In the video, the Syrian mercenaries from the so-called “Syrian National Army” (SNA) walk through a neighborhood in Tripoli, with one of the militants saying “Libya welcomes you.”

One of the militants in the video above appears to be a teenager that is now fighting in Libya.

Last month, Bloomberg News revealed that Turkey was sending several Syrian militants to Libya to assist the Government of National Accord (GNA) forces after they suffered a series of losses at the hands of the Libyan National Army (LNA).

That’s a big mistake for them. Their chance of survival against Field Marshal Hafter is much lower than hiding in Syria behind civilians.

But worst of all : ErDOG is not managing to cover their smuggling up more than Iran has been able to cover up the shoot down of the Ukrainian airliner…
And Haftar is backed by UAE, Egypt, Russia, USA and France added to all countries around Libya who don’t want GNA jihadists to end in control f the country on the behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Hope they’ve done enough fighting to avoid getting themselves shot. But I’d doubt that.
