Up to 300 elite Turkish commandos will enter Syria to fight ISIS terrorists and the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) whilst supporting the Free Syrian Army and Islamist militants, according to Anadolu News.

The commandos will come from the 11th Command Brigade.

A source told Anadolu News that the 11th Command Brigade have already been airlifed to Syria from the Cardak Military Airport in Western Turkey.

Turkish forces crossed into Syria on August 24 under the pretext of expelling ISIS from the border region but have cleared some 1,800 square kilometers (694 square miles) from not only ISIS, but also the Kurdish-led SDF.

Green berets have been backed up. I suppose these commandos are supposed to replace these CIA-commandos, moreover, some former GBs publicly stated they voluntarily sabotaged the mercenaries/”rebels” training and well, just compare how FSA’n’Co and YPG/SDF fight in videos then you clearly see, at least when you know how serious militaries fight, that the takfiris are really poorly trained while YPG/SDF are really potent.

Chinese will never step in this war or any other. Chinese policy historically is to help other countries as soon as never.

Well, they had direct implication during Korea and Vietnam wars, although it was made unofficially but better not count on it, they clearly prefer to be in the shadows and selling weapons to both parties 😉
