Turkey Provides Support for Deployment of Hundreds of Foreign Terrorists in Northwestern Syria
The Arabic-language website of Sputnik reported that the Turkish army has provided support for 5,000 Chinese Uygur terrorists from al-Turkistani Islamic Party to deploy in the village of al-Zanbaqi near the town of Darkoush in Jisr al-Shughour region in Western Idlib near the border with Turkey.
It said that the terrorists have turned Western Idlib into their main command center after they forced civilians and villagers to leave their home in 2015, adding that the occupied region includes several small towns, bases and logistical buildings overlooking a large flank from Northeastern Lattakia to Southern Idlib and Northern Hama.
It went on to say that the largest population of Turkistani, Chinese and Uygur terrorists is in Idlib, adding that their total number along with their family members stands at over 18,000.
It said that foreign terrorists in Idlib province are fully supported by Ankara, adding that the Turkish troops have increased movements between the terrorist-held village and military training camps of al-Turkistani after Turkish soldiers set up their truce- monitoring points in Idlib province, specially in Jisr al-Shughour region.
The report said that the Turkish army’s watch towers are only 200 meters away from the militant-held villages.
Media sources reported earlier this month that the Turkish army sent several trucks carrying chlorine to the Ankara-backed terrorists’ stronghold in Idlib, adding that a number of commanders of militant groups left the region.
The Arabic-language website of Sputnik news agency quoted local sources in Idlib province as saying that a Turkish military convoy, consisting of tens of trucks, and accompanied by Tahrir al-Sham terrorists, entered Syria through Kafr Lousin passageway in Northern Idlib and were transferred to the region under the supervision of Turkey in Jisr al-Shughour in Western Idlib and Northwestern Hama.
They added that 8 trucks carrying plastic barrels containing fluid Chlorine were unloaded in one of the bases of Turkistani terrorist group in the village of Halouz in Western Jisr al-Shughour.
Also, 18 other trucks, carrying prefabricated residential boxes, cement walls and other technical equipment, communication systems and electronic sniper guns, were transferred to Jabal Ishtabraq region.
The sources also said that 3 trucks moved towards Turkey at night under heavy security measures of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at, raising the speculations that they had transferred the foreign terrorist commanders of Tahrir al-Sham to Turkey.
Meantime, the Turkish forces stopped activities of al-Barqoum checkpoint which was the biggest Tahrir al-Sham checkpoint in Aleppo-Damascus highway.
