Some 3,000 Syrian fighters (so far) have arrived in Libya. They have come from the Soqour al-Sham, Failaq al-Sham, al-Sultan Murad and other factions. The majority do not have identification papers. They were sent by Ankara from Gaziantep in southern Turkey to Istanbul and then directly to Libya to fight there in return for a monthly salary after they were used by Turkey in its war against the Kurds in northern Syria.
