Egypt sends soldiers to Syria to bolster embattled President Assad

Egypt has sent around 150 soldiers to Syria to support forces of President Bashar al Assad, Anadolu news agency reports, citing military sources.

The soldiers had been sent to Aleppo countryside, Idlib area, in coordination with Iranian Revolutionary Guards via Hama Military Airport, the agency notes.

They were subsequently deployed in the Khan al-Asal area in western countryside of Aleppo and around the city of Saraqib in the southern countryside of Idlib.


The Egyptian soldiers, armed with light weapons and accompanied by Iran-backed terrorist groups, were deployed on the front lines against moderate Syrian opposition factions.

The arrival of the Egyptian soldiers coincides with increasing deployments of Iranian groups and regime forces on the frontlines against the opposition forces deployed in the de-escalation zone amid recent violations of the ongoing cease-fire in the region, the Turkish state-controlled media says.
