Turkey continues the process of transporting mercenaries from Syria to Libya to participate in military operations alongside Al-Wefaq militias against the Libyan National Army.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported today, Tuesday, that Turkey sent a new batch of mercenaries to Libya that included hundreds of armed men from the loyal Syrian factions.

 Thus, the number of conscripts who have reached Libyan territory so far is about 9,600 "mercenaries", including a non-Syrian group, while the number of conscripts who arrived in the Turkish camps to receive training amounted to about 3,300.

It is noteworthy that among the total number of recruits, there are about 180 children between the ages of 16 and 18 who have been recruited through a process of material temptation, in full exploitation of the difficult living situation and poverty situations.

While the observatory documented more deaths among the mercenaries of Turkey as a result of the battles taking place on several axes inside Libyan territory, where the death toll rose to 304 mercenaries, including 17 children, in addition to the leaders of groups.

The dead are from the factions (Al-Mu'tasim Brigade, Sultan Murad Brigade, Northern Falcons Brigade, Al-Hamzat, and Suleiman Shah).

They were killed during the clashes on the axes of Salah Al-Din neighborhood south of Tripoli, the Ramla axis near Tripoli airport and the axis of the Hadaba project, in addition to the battles of Misrata and other areas in Libya.
