According to Arab sources, these fighters infiltrated Syrian territory from Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan and the Kurdish and Sunni regions of Iraq.

These fighters entered Syria carrying with them large quantities of small and medium arms including Russian SAM-7 anti-aircraft missiles and anti tank rockets. These fighters are ready “to start the Winter War” against the forces loyal to the regime of Bashar al-Assad. This fight will be in cooperation with defectors from the Syrian army, called “the free Syrian army” led by Colonel Riyadh al-Assad, who began the implementation of the plan from inside the Turkish border.
