"TEL ABYAD, Syria - Clashes broke out on Sunday between Turkish-back extremist Islamist groups Ahrar al-Sharqiya and Jabhat al-Shamiyah at the Tel Abyad border crossing with Turkey. Both groups are a part of the Syrian National Army (SNA), a collection of militias, including several espousing Islamist ideologies, formed and funded by Turkey."
Caption: White-field flag (with black lettering) of the "Ahrar al-Sharqiya" militia (part of the rebel "Syrian National Army") fighting in Syria c. Dec. 2018. This rebel militia is opposed to the Syrian government of Pres. Assad, and is allegedly financed by Turkey. The main logo image reads: "Ahrar al-Sharqiya" with a barely discernable flag at the top showing the basic Islamic "Shahada" profession-of-faith.
