"birds of the same feather flock together"
North Koreans in Syria? North Koreans?
Aid and assistance to the regime of Assad by the North Korean we are familiar with. NOW the north is accused of aiding and abetting ISIL too? Thanks to intelNews.org.
"South Korean lawmakers accuse North of helping Islamic State"
"A powerful South Korean parliamentary committee has accused the North Korean government of ties to the Islamic State, an allegation that is vehemently denied by Pyongyang."
. . . .
". . . the North Korean regime is believed to be a strong international ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad . . . It is believed that North Korean technicians aided in the construction of Syria’s al-Kibar nuclear facility, . . . Today, North Korea is among a small number of countries that maintain fully staffed embassies in Syrian capital Damascus. In September of this year, the government of Syria dedicated a park in the capital to Kim Il Sung, North Korea’s late leader."
That Kim is Kim the First. That communist ruler of North Korea immediately subsequent to the end of the Second World War [WW2].
NO MENTION HOWEVER OF NORTH KOREAN BODYGUARDS OR SPECIAL OPERATIONS TYPE COMBAT CONTINGENTS FIGHTING ON THE SIDE OF ASSAD..
