Syrian rebels have brought at least 2,000 reinforcements through Turkey in the past week to bolster the fight against Kurdish-led militias north of Aleppo, rebel sources said on Thursday.
...Turkish forces facilitated the transfer from one front to another over several nights
..."We have been allowed to move everything from light weapons to heavy equipment, mortars and missiles and our tanks," Abu Issa, a commander in the Levant Front, told Reuters ..."We are getting fresh supplies of everything from missiles to mortars to armoured vehicles. Almost everything is now being delivered to us," said the rebel source.

Maybe that is why the Kurds just cut the escape route from Aleppo City (the Castello Road) - the retreating jihadis were being shipped through Turkey (Reyhanli) to attack the Kurds from the North.
What Syrian Rebels.....the stopped being Syrian rebels as they ran and flooded into Europe.....these are foreign terrorist groups fighting against each other and Assad to take over Syria.....nothing to do with the rebels.
Erdogan has been setting up events to push Nato’s involvement to take out Assad for him....and he’s been using the refugees as leverage for both revenue flow and against the International community to get them to act further in Syra...
for him”. They’ve refused thus far even after he’s threatened to cut loose thousands more refugees into Europe.
2000 new fighters.
That’s a day’s death toll for the beheaders across Syria right now.
The virgin machine in Paradise is going as fast as US ammo factories.
FYI: Counter attack against the Kurds shaping up from Turkey - using up-gunned jihadis pulled from Aleppo and Idlib.
“... move everything from light weapons to heavy equipment, mortars and missiles and our tanks....”
And who is the source of these weapons??
“And who is the source of these weapons??”
The rebels captured Syrian Army equipment, like tanks.
Turkey manufactures much of the ammo, from small arms up to 155mm artillery shells.
The Saudis and Qataris bought weapons elsewhere to ship through Turkey.
The USA ran a lot of weapons from the plundered Libyan arsenals to Turkey for the Syrian rebels (which is what the Benghazi annex was coordinating).
The game-changing anti-tank TOW missiles come straight from the USA. I have not heard lately if the resupply of TOW missiles has continued, slowed or sped up, as things have changed so much.
And since 98% of these guys are jihadis, why the hell is this acceptable?
Free Syrian Army is all but a memory, they’re spent as a force. Yet the press loves to use them as poster boys regardless.
Erdogan needs a polonium cocktail before he sets the world on fire.
