Turkey giving weapons, gear and military garbs to Jihadists


Despite the recent U.S. support for Turkey’s policies in northern Syria, Turkey is giving American anti-aircraft weapons to the al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra).

In addition, Turkey is supplying these jihadis with Turkish military uniforms to avoid detection.

A Russian military discretionary source said that Turkey is effectively assembling fighters, weapons and military gear in Idlib, northern Syria, and is giving over an unmistakable piece of the weapons to the activists of the Headquarters for the Liberation of Al-Sham.

Also, Russian news offices cited the source as saying on Saturday that Turkey has brought into Idlib in excess of 70 tanks, around 200 defensively covered vehicles and 80 guns, showing that an enormous piece of the gear is being conveyed to the fear based oppressor “Tahrir al-Sham” local army.

He called attention to that the activists had acquired from Turkey a US-made enemy of airplane against airplane, including that the instances of the aggressors ‘utilization of these compact air resistance frameworks are the greatest concern today, realizing that two Syrian armed force helicopters were shot down in the northern locale this week.

Recently, Turkey has delivered a high number of various weapons and equipment to so-called “moderate rebels” in the Syrian province of Idlib. It seems that a part of these “moderate rebels” was members of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda). The photo above shows the Turkish-provided M113 armoured personnel carrier with a flag of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham.

The source affirmed that shooters having a place with the “Central command for the Liberation of Al-Sham” and different gatherings are taking part in the battle against the Syrian powers under the cover of Turkish armed force components. He included that inside seven days, the Syrian powers annihilated in excess of 20 tanks and troop transporters that were conveyed to Turkey by aggressors in Idlib.
