BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 P.M.) – A source from the Tiger Forces told Al-Masdar News on Wednesday afternoon that the claims about infighting between their group and the 4th Division were “Turkish regime lies.”
According to the source, the Tiger Forces and 4th Division had no confrontation at any time nor did the Russian military demand that the alleged Iranian-backed forces withdraw from the northern countryside of Hama.
The source said that the Iranian-backed forces have a small presence in northern Hama, adding that the claims of Iranian bases in the area were exaggerated and untrue.
These allegations were first spread by opposition groups via social media and were later claimed by Turkish state-owned media.
Al-Masdar also reached out to sources in the government stronghold of Mhardeh, who also confirmed that these claims of infighting were false.
