Relations Between Syrian “Rebels” and Turkey Decline After President Erdogan Announces Potential Reconciliation with Assad Government

Anti-government Syrian’s in “rebel-held” areas turn against longtime Turkish support after Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, announced a potential reconciliation between Turkey and Syria.

Fares Shehabi, a Syrian patriot, shared tweets and videos of the events on social media, stating “Turkey’s own Syrian “rebels” burning the Turkish flag in protest of the current negotiations between Syria and Turkey! These very same thugs burned the Syrian flag many times before! Once a traitor, always a traitor!” 

In addition, mob attacks on Syrian refugees took place in central Turkey after word spread of a Syrian refugee man who sexu*lly abused his seven-year-old relative. Turkish police have arrested over 500 people for partaking in the attacks, in which nationalist Turks burned businesses, homes, and cars of Syrians’.

Mass demonstrations were seen across Syria’s Idlib governorate – which is under the reigns of terrorist group Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), (former Al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria) – and Afrin, Azaz and Jarablus in the Aleppo countryside, controlled by the Syrian National Army (SNA); a Turkish-backed militant group made up of former so-called “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) militants.

Clashes erupted between Turkish forces and Syrian rebels, who rioted and protested against Turkish presence, leading Turkey to temporarily close the Bab al-Hawa crossing on Syria’s northern border. The Bab al-Salam, Al-Rai, and Jarablus border crossings were also sealed. 

Four people were killed in the clashes, in Syria’s Afrin and Jarablus, with over 20 injured.

Shehabi adds “Erdogan’s beloved rebels tearing down Turkish flags in northern Aleppo towns…! A clear evidence that Erdogan relied on thugs and criminals and not freedom fighters in Syria.”

Many deem such a fall out as the last chapter in the global War on Syria.
