BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 A.M.) – The Turkish-backed National Liberation Front (NLF) released a video on Wednesday that showed a newly formed special forces unit training in northern Syria.

The new NLF special forces unit was reportedly trained in urban warfare and hit-an-run scenarios.

This new rebel unit will be immediately deployed to the front-lines against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies in the Idlib and Hama provinces, opposition activists claimed.

Below is the video that was released by the National Liberation Front this week:

Erdogan managed to delay the initial SAA offensive for this very purpose. The turks have regrouped, rearmed, retrained and rebranded the terrorists to cause maximum hurt for the Syrians and prolong the slaughter.

@Byzantium, it looks like it.

And the Sultan trains ghazi to achieve Northern Cyprus 2.0 in Syria.

@ Stern; Yes balkanisation of the Syrian region is the name of the game now, as it probably always was. US and Turkey are tag team partners and instrumental to this carve up for various reasons. Cui bono, apart from the obvious who really benefits ?

@rebbe, yes like in Serbia the old WW I Entente turns on their creations. The US and Turkey are no partners but have their own goals. US is into balkanisation but the Sultanate is into irredentism.

The later contradicts the US intentions and may lead to the balkanisation of East Anatolia in favor of a new democratic state that owes its creation and protection to the US.

Cui bono? Those that achieve the economic goal to supply the EU with fossil fuels via Syria. The EU is 2nd biggest market and economy. Nr. 3 and 6 are interested parties in this war. All other big Gulf fossil fuel producers were in this war too.

It was NOT Turkey that ” regrouped, rearmed, retrained and rebranded the terrorists ” .
The trick was invented by those countries who created terrorists : UK/Israel.
Syria captured hundreds of French/US/Israeli officers.— https://www.veteranstoday.com/2018/05/29/suppressed-strange-syria-holds-hundreds-of-french-american-and-israeli-military-intel-pow/

These losers will soon run towards Turki and it will definitely become a serious problem to Turki in the long run. SAA will eventually defeat these guys as SAA has air support from SAF & RuAF.

As soon as SAA starts their attack in large scale all these roaches will vanish to Turki. This is the real reason why Turki doesnt want them to come into Turki and wants them to keep fighting ON inside Idlib and is arming & training them. These dumb d**k heads think Turki is helping them in the name of Islamic Jihad.

@haha, Atatürk’s spirit has died in the army. SAA has SS 300 and will rule the skies all the way from Ankara to Istanbul.

The Sultan will have to ask for NATO protection like he did when he killed the Russian pilot. The joke is on the Türk Silahlı Kuvvetleri.

Are you joking? lol when Turkey shot down the Russian jet, mate Turkey made fun out of Russia, and all that Russia did was ban stupid tomatoes, oh wow. so strong russia 😀 same stuff happened in afrin when Hezbollah and NDF/SAA militias came, all shot down by airstrikes 🙂

@haha.., the joke is on the TSK. The Sultan sent his Visier of Defense whining to the NATO in Brussels asking for protection. Yet the Czar decided not to punish the Sultan militarily for the pilot’s murder but sanctioned him into submission by blocking tourism and bilateral commerce.

Syria did not have SS 300 when the TSK used their handful of trained pilots in Afrin. The Sultan’s conceited ghazi and TSK’s regular Janissaries took three months to end the resistance of a few YPG militia. Hezbollah and NDF/SAA did not fully commit because the Kurds declined a political union.

Los servicios de inteligencia Sirio (espias), lejos de mostrar videos, deberían dar coordenadas exactas para que los campos de entrenamiento sean el blanco perfecto de un misil, mucho mejor en momento preciso de entrenamiento para hacer desaparece todo ese conjunto de lacras y descabezar a su comandante.

The Sultan’s minions plan and train for guerrilla action – eternal war in Syria. And the Sultan plans for a Norther Cyprus solution of areas inside Syria.

If possible he wants to take the oil rich areas held by YPG now.

Correct. Basically Erdogan was getting cheap stolen Syrian oil from ISIS until the Russians intervened and took out all those fuel convoys.
The Turks and the FSA are raising the ante in Afrin and Aleppo. The Kurds in the meantime, being dependent on the US military, are being shepherded by the Americans to Eastern Deir Ezzor miles away to fight a diminished ISIS. I sometimes wonder about the IQ of the average Kurd.

, The Kurds play another game. IMHO.

They want no fast victory again IS but continuing action so the US keep funneling the arms and ammo they need for their Northern Front against the Ottoman Sultan’s aspirations. All the time they stockpile and train with live ammo against IS only a few hours drive from the Northern border. They move redundant troops from Raqqa to the IS fronts thus closer to the North.

The US presence also serves to keep the SAA out.

@Sweet, large air force my foot – others have SS 300. SAA and YPG united will wipe the floor with the Sultan’s minions.

The Sultan will cry for a real army to come to his aid.
And NATO will answer again: No You were not attacked.
