ALEPPO, Syria – The Syrian Opposition Interim Government announced today the formation of the “Syrian National Army” (SNA).

The SNA are organized from factions that comprised of the Turkish-backed Euphrates Shield and operate in northern Aleppo countryside. The SNA is organized into three legions.

The Euphrates Shield was a coalition of the Turkish military and Turkish-backed forces including the Free Syrian Army but mostly jihadist groups like Ahrar al-Sham.

The Euphrates Shield expelled ISIS from the Turkish border and prevented Kurdish forces from Hasakeh and Raqqa to reach the Kurdish-held Afrin Canton in northwest Aleppo countryside.

The SNA are yet to announce any operations it will conduct, but it is expected they will be used to fight Kurdish forces and expel them from the western side of the Euphrates river.
