Turkey moves armored vehicles to the border with Iraq

Turkish media have reported that Turkish armed forces convoys are moving towards the borders of Iraq. Turkish NTV channel comes out with a report saying that several dozen tanks, armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles are being transported to the Shirnak province bordering Iraq. Transport on highways is carried out using automotive platforms.

Turkey moves armored vehicles to the border with Iraq

Against this background, the news agency "Anadolu»Publishes materials in which it narrates what kind of" success "Ankara has achieved in the fight against the" Islamic State "(prohibited in Russia). The article states that from 17 December 2015 of the year to 16 of October 2016 of the year in the area of ​​Mosul, Turkish troops attacked 6820 at ISIS facilities. During this time, Turkish aircraft eliminated 690 igilovtsev, 555 shelters and firing positions, 106 vehicles. At least, this is how Ankara reports. The Turkish media does not routinely inform the media about how many civilians died in the process.

The same material claims that the Turkish forces “liberated” the territory with a total area of ​​1350 square kilometers during the operation called “The Euphrates Shield”. It is noteworthy that by “liberation” Turkey understands the actual occupation of a part of the northern provinces of both Iraq and Syria, against which official Baghdad and Damascus openly protest.

The article describes the "ruthless struggle against LIH" and in the territory of Turkey itself. Anadolu cites the following statistics: 306 ISIS supporters detained, 45 arrested. This is against the background of the fact that the so-called “Gulenists” in Turkey are already being detained by tens of thousands.

      Only details are subject to change. To advance deep into the territory of neighboring countries, gain a foothold with the help of the armed forces, talk about legitimate reasons to demand the occupied territories. At the same time, if the official government of the occupied countries is destroyed during the civil war, then there will be no one to put forward any demands, and will only have to make excuses to the UN, and in fact only to one country that now runs the organization.
      But this will not be a problem, because how long has the occupation lasted, and the UN is doing absolutely nothing.

    The Turks will now create a new training center there, for training the Ishilovites to continue the war. And, again, fuel trucks with stolen oil will flow.

    The main thing here is to skillfully maneuver and calculate the moves ahead. And so far, that does it. You need to find out about upcoming provocations in time or stop them. And this is intelligence, etc.

    The Turks are transferring their armored vehicles to the border with Iraq, and they are not asking anyone.
    So why, when transferring armored vehicles for exercises, also across our territory, should report to our "potential partners" ..

    All partners report hundreds of liquidated Igilovites. 600, 100, 300. Where do you get so many from? They have very great success in recruiting. They probably know some secrets.
