The Chechen Boys!!
Finally s seen at the latest edition of the DEBKAfile news letter:
Chechen mercenaries as beholden to Moscow and loyal to same now deployed to Syria. Fighting ON THE SIDE OF ASSAD!
YET MORE proxies enter the Syrian fray!
"Russia flies Chechen commandos to Syria"
"The troops come from elite units of the Chechen military with extensive field experience in urban warfare . . . Some of the units fought in eastern Ukraine in the past two years and, before that, in Chechnya for suppressing radical Islamic terror organizations linked to Al Qaeda and the Salafi movement."
"In the initial stage, the deployment will consist of three divisions totaling about 1,000 soldiers. Moscow has never before dispatched a substantial number of ground troops to the Syrian battlefield."
"The deployment of the Chechen proxies has three goals"
1. "To free the forces of the coalition supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad, including Russia, of responsibility for holding and defending territory they captured in Syrian cities, especially Aleppo".
2. "To reinforce the Russian, Iranian, Syrian and Hizballah troops with highly-trained commandos capable of spearheading the next challenging battles in places like the Idlib region in the north and Darra in the south".
3. "To save Russian President Vladimir Putin and Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu from having to send Russian ground troops to finish the Syrian war."
CHECHEN ARE SUNNI, ASSAD AND HIS ALLIES ARE SHIA!! HOW WELL WILL THE TWO MIX? I GUESS AS LONG AS THE PAY IS GOOD!
