Turkmen and Arab tribes will support the Turkey-backed Free Syrian Army's (FSA) fight to liberate the Daish-held towns of Dabiq and al-Bab. According to a report published in the Habertürk daily, FSA commanders reached out to Turkmen and Arab tribes to receive their backing in the upcoming battles with Daish in Dabiq and al-Bab. The report claims that the talks between the tribes and the FSA commanders were positive. An FSA commander said that the tribes would take action once the Turkey-backed FSA starts an offensive.
Previously, the PKK's Syrian affiliate the Democratic Union Party (PYD) abducted the sons of tribe leaders to prevent them from lending support to the FSA.
