Re: Levant crisis - III

the main turkic militia operating in idlib, north western aleppo and hasakah are the turkomen ethnic tribe which converted wholesale into isis, nusra, hizbut tahrir al sham. This is the definition of the word fifth column if any. After eating bread of Syria for so long they still have no loyalty.
