Military Review

Ankara will transfer additional troops to Syria

18
The Turkish Ministry of Defense reports an increase in the number and volume of technical equipment of the group of troops involved in operations in Syria. We are talking about the operation, which Ankara gave the loud name "Euphrates Shield". In the course of the “Shield”, the Turkish army supports the so-called “Syrian free army” operating in the north of the SAR. A few days ago, the SSA, after a long break, entered into a clash with the Syrian government army in the area of ​​Al-Bab.

According to the military command, which leads the news agency Anadolu, to the border with Syria arrived regular composition with military equipment. These are military vehicles and armored personnel carriers. It became known that the border with Syria in the near future will cross the 22 BTR and up to several companies of Turkish soldiers.



Recall that during the operation "The Euphrates Shield" Turkish troops are fighting not only against ISIL militants (* prohibited in the Russian Federation), but also against armed Kurdish troops.

Just a few days ago, one of the American generals stated that they had conducted additional exploration of the situation in northern Syria, as well as in the province of Rakka, and concluded that it was necessary to additionally arm the Kurds, for example, with anti-tank missile systems. These statements by the American commander caused criticism from the official authorities of Turkey, for whom, it seems, the IG (*) is still far from the main goal in the UAR.

      For Russia, any agreements on the division of Syria are included, because this contradicts the policy it has pursued in relation to this country, which consists in the fact that the Syrians themselves will decide their future, and Russia is fighting ISIS there. Moreover, such agreements are inappropriate with Erdogan, who essentially invaded Syria.

          Everything is simple, there is what you can and what you want at the moment.
          Erdogan wants and can increase his rates by March 9 and he raises them. As our moment will change the Turkish format in Syria, ours will change, the USA can intervene in the same way. We have the advantage that we firmly and consistently advocate for a political, intra-Syrian dialogue and format.

            written in different words, does not negate the fact that it is one and the same. everyone leads his own game - here not only doesn’t allow barmaleys to come to us, but also finances (why do we need a competitor in oil, it’s better to take control of it), and geopolitics (to gain a foothold in BV) hi

              Erdogan has a lot of Wishlist, but he can break his “mouth”, trying to bite off a bigger piece.

        In words, there is much that is excluded; in words, the Russian Federation really fights with black bearded men. But in reality, everything is not so, and they mainly fight with blacks on TV according to the principle - where the bomb fell there and the bearded men, even though they were not there in nature.

    I wonder where they will move when they were recently locked up from the south by Syrian troops. From the west and east of the Kurds

    A good "gift" for the Turkish armored vehicles. I once wrote that you can’t figure it out now who with whom and against whom. The way it is. Turkey is a member of NATO and an ally of the United States, and the Americans help with weapons the eternal enemy of the Turks.

        On the contrary. Americans are always only for themselves.

    Like in "Red Alert": "We will bury them!"
    Of course it will be harder for the Syrians, but the slogan "Victory or death!"
    After all, if the barmalei win and others take off, then the existence of Syria, as a rule of law, can be forgotten. So it remains only to win, the third is not given. request sad

    Americans make it clear to the Turks that the United States punishes the Turks for independent politics. I think they’ll get burned.

    It seems that the "battle" for the "love" for the Kurds among NATO members is in full swing. America decided to deliver mortars and anti-tank systems to them, and Turkey, in response, had more "friends in camouflage." And why should Erdogan not play muscles in front of the Americans - Uncle Vova is nearby, somewhere on the side

    The nearest units and divisions of the Turkish Turkish Army to the Syrian theater (which are either already involved or may be involved) are 7AK and 6AK of the 2nd PA, as well as 8AK of the 3rd PA (the most combat-ready in the Turkish SV, the main direction is the former ZakVO).
    The 3rd PA and the Aegean PA (B and BT) - Turkey anticipated to disband the antiques, I don’t know how things are now, most likely they will suspend, but the Turks can use the resources (stocks of property) of this army and 11AK (island of Cyprus).

    So, as part of the reform (reduction), Turkey will not spare neither В nor ВТ for fulfilling its tasks in the SAR.
    A weak army aircraft could become a problem for Turkey, and without it it would be difficult to land tactical assault forces in the rear of the Kurds and maintain fire on their units.
    So the Russian Federation has a chance to win a tender for the supply of helicopters in Turkey (Turkey quarreled with all NATO countries, and the former Soviet republics, they all drank everything for a long time) ....

    The Turks are making their game, I think they won’t get against the SAA, it is fraught with a conflict with the Russian Federation, but in the future the alignment may change and then another opponent for the SAA and the conflict of interests of Russia and Turkey will be added. Now the Turks will wet the Kurds and may move around the CAA. Unless of course this information is fake.
