President Bashar Assad has contracted North Korean pilots to command his war planes after losing the trust in Syrian pilots, a veteran dissident has revealed.
Burhan Ghalioun, former leader of the Syrian National Council, revealed on his Facebook page that Assad has contracted with professional pilots from North Korea to wage his air offensives.
The latest revelation adds to a host of foreign military actors assisting the Syrian regime. The war-torn Syrian people are now facing Hezbollah Militia, Iranian and Iraqi Militants, Russian mercenaries and North Korean pilots.
