SOHR: Number of Syrian Fighters in Libya Increasing


The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) announced on Saturday that the number of Syrian fighters in Libya has reached approximately 10,000. About 223 of them had been killed during clashes with the Libyan National Army (LNA).

On Friday, the SOHR had said that Ankara has invested heavily in the Libyan conflict by providing weapons, fighters and drones to forces aligned with the Tripoli based Government of National Accord (GNA).

This comes despite Turkey’s agreement to the outcomes of the Berlin Conference that was held in January, where foreign powers involved in the conflict agreed to uphold the UN arms embargo on Libya.
