Ankara transfers Syrian, Turkish mercenaries to Yemen

SANAA, March 14 (YPA) – Turkey began on Sunday the transfer of fighters from its terrorist groups in Syria, to participate in the fighting within Saudi-led coalition forces in Yemen, sources told Yemen Press Agency.

The sources said that Turkish planes transported mercenaries of the terrorist “Al Qaeda and ISIS” organizations from the Syrian territories to the Qatari capital, Doha, in preparation for their transfer to the Yemeni city of Marib across the Empty Quarter desert.

Many mercenaries loyal to Ankara would be transported in the Syrian territories through Turkish and Saudi airports, the sources added.

This comes days after several local and regional media circulated news of a Turkish-Saudi understanding about Turkey’s participation in the war on Yemen.

In the same context, leaders of the extremist organizations in Syria published videos announcing that they receive mercenary recruits to fight in Yemen in exchange for 4,000 dollars.
