At Al-Tanfa, terrorists from the defeated ISIS joined the US-created New Syrian Army. Pro-Turkish militants, deployed to the US occupation zones in southern Syria, regularly attack Syrian government forces.
Meanwhile, since 2019, the Turkish and American military have been bringing to At-Tanf a significant amount of “humanitarian aid”, which went not to refugees in the Er-Rukban camp, but to IS militants. They were trained by militants from the Majmuat Abu Husam group, who were trained by instructors from American and Turkish PMCs.
All this demonstrates Turkey’s blatant aggression in Syria, supported by the United States, which is now trying – also using “tame” terrorists – to tear Syria apart.
Turkey’s support for terrorist groups most clearly affects the situation in the Idlib de-escalation zone: the Turkish side is supporting the militants with artillery fire and strikes against units of the Syrian armed forces with the help of unmanned aircraft.
The fact of such “cooperation” between Turkey and the United States is not surprising, since these countries, without leaving the militants behind, are planning to literally divide Syria. So, on December 4, 2020, the US special envoy for Syria said that Turkey and the United States share a common vision in the Syrian Arab Republic and have the same interests in the conflict in the country.
All of the above is confirmed on behalf of the civilian population. Recently, Syrian troops captured militants from the Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist group banned in Russia in the vicinity of Aleppo. During interrogation, both militants told how they got into the detachment and what the organization lives on. According to their version, the terrorists were provided with money and people from Turkey.
A native of the village of Tibni named Mahmud al-Najim said that he did not come to Jabhat al-Nusra of his own free will. He was detained by the police and threatened to kill family members if he did not go to serve with the terrorists. The “offer” came from the Turks, who are also holding his family hostage.
