Leaders of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) have decided to move its command center from Turkey to Syria, the head of the Military Council conveyed. According to him, the decision was made in order to bring together all rebel groups in Syria. The command center was moved “to the liberated territory” last week. We do not know exactly where it is based,” he said.
Earlier, the command of the FSA has been criticized that it acts from outside Syria, in Turkey.
