The military situation in Syria: the Turks are, Russian out?

7
A meeting of the Turkish military command with representatives of the Ministry of Defense was held in Moscow. From the Turkish side, the head of the General Staff of the Armed Forces and the Director of National Intelligence took part in the negotiations on Syria. The Russian side was represented by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, Chief of Staff Valery Gerasimov and others.


What was the outcome of the negotiations - not reported, but from the Syria itself comes conflicting information. A number of Middle Eastern media сообщили on the withdrawal of the Russian contingent of troops from the Syrian city of Afrin in order to prevent a military clash with the Turkish army, which is preparing a large-scale military campaign in the area.

How it became is known later, the Turkish military transferred to the territory of Syria their modern EW Koral complexes, which, according to a number of expert assessments, are ways to counteract the Russian C-400 air defense system deployed in the Arab Republic.

    The Russian military contingent (there are 170 people there) is not leaving anywhere in Afrin. This is complete nonsense. This was announced yesterday by Lavrov.

      The Russian military has been redeployed from the Syrian Afrin region, where the Turkish army is conducting an operation against Kurdish forces, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

    We chose to be friends with the Turks, and not with the Kurds. Reasonable. The USA supports the Kurds, Turkey wants to destroy them. Interestingly, one NATO member is against another. Or is it just the whole game?

    Yes, everything is so confusing that you can shoot a series.

    .... EW Koral, which, according to a number of expert assessments, are ways to counteract Russian S-400 air defense systems)))
    And how could experts write such a thing if no one in the case had experienced them against each other ????
