Situation in Syria

30
Thanks to the support of the Russian Aerospace Forces, the Syrian army repulsed a terrorist attack in Deir ez-Zor. The Turkish Air Force launched regular strikes against Kurdish positions in Aleppo and Rakka. Reports about it FAN with reference to Syrian sources.




In the morning, it became known about the beginning of the counter-offensive of the Syrian Democratic Army (SDF) in the northern part of the canton of Afrin. Kurdish units clashed with Syrian Free Army (SSA) fighters, supported by Turkish troops, in the Barsaya mountain range and near the hamam village. As a result, these territories again came under the control of the SDF and YPG. Turkish for a day aviation did not stop bombing the territories controlled by the Kurds. The constant combat sorties of the Turkish Air Force have caused the death of at least 32 civilians. The Turkish military command, in turn, did not confirm this information, claiming that only 303 Kurdish fighters were killed during the operation. Armed skirmishes between the SDF and the SSA were also recorded in the Tel Rifat area. It is also reported that as a result of fierce skirmishes, Turkey lost three tanks.

In the area of ​​the city of Abu Kemal (Deir-ez-Zor province) and nearby settlements during the day the confrontation did not stop between ATS military personnel and IS groups (banned in the Russian Federation) who had moved from the eastern coast of the Euphrates, controlled by the "democratic army". The terrorists attacked the positions of the government army near the villages of Al-Kashma and Gharib. Nevertheless, the attack was successfully repelled thanks to the help of the Russian aviation. At least 25 terrorists have been destroyed, in turn, the CAA has lost two tanks.

In the afternoon, the news agency Al Masdar News, citing opposition Internet portals, announced the upcoming large-scale offensive of "Dzhebhat al-Nusra" (banned in the Russian Federation) against the army of Bashar al-Assad and its allies in northern Syria. Meanwhile, the VKS of the Russian Federation and the Syrian Air Force, relying on their own intelligence data, launched preemptive strikes against targets of the Islamist group in the vicinity of the settlements of Khuvein and Abu Mecca (Idlib Province).

In the northern part of the province of Rakka, the Turkish Air Force began to conduct combat missions. Tel Abyad and Saluk settlements were bombed. No injuries were reported among the civilian population.

    When our VKS operation began in Syria, I said that the majahideen will have to build a lot of grades in the desert, where they will be wetted. Apparently, Putin’s phrase will be immortal.

      The first conclusions about the Afrin offensive can be done in a couple of weeks. So far the parties have not even warmed up. Yes, and not all participants yet. "came to war"

        I can tell you now the result ... they will wash the Turks, and they will burn their armored vehicles inadvertently, which they pulled up for "prosecution". Why will they be washed? The Kurds held back the Ishilovites for 4 years, and very successfully. These guys are trained and hardened. For 5 years of the war, there is military experience that the Turks do not have.

          I would not mind if the Kurds wash the Turks near Afrin, but this is unlikely. Turks Afrin will take. And in the near future .... You're right, the Kurds are good fighters .... better than the Turkish merchants, but still not everything is decided by personal training and courage. The Turks have a serious superiority in military technology - tanks and planes ..... And given that the Turks are cruel by nature, they will not stop before the carpet bombing of settlements. So the Kurds have little chance.
          The only thing they can bet on is a guerrilla warfare along the entire border and in the "Kurdish" areas of Turkey. This is their chance of success. But for this, the Kurds must unite. While they are divided.

              Under Afrin, the chances are NULL. And as for “a simple short fight, this will not end”, I agree .... but only if the Kurds move to small group tactics (guerrilla warfare)

                From the Turks, warriors, like from a dildo space shuttle. And believe me, our VKS will smoke on the sidelines and thoughtfully contemplate this performance. And Erdogan will very soon ask for help from the Kremlin in resolving the Kurdish issue, or rather military support. Yes, only a Russian vegetable to him, and not support will be.

                  I don’t know whether they were made with a crooked or crooked body, but they have NO means of fighting Turkish aircraft at medium and high altitudes. Plus, the Turks are free to use armored vehicles, which was extremely difficult for Amers to do in the conditions of the jungle .... well, as for the allies, we will wait and see ... neither Iran, nor Syria, nor Iraq are eager to help them for obvious reasons. Well, USA ... as they say, it is better to have smart enemies than cunning friends ... they will use and sell to the same Turks.

                      And I don’t deny it ... but here we were talking about the situation under Afrin. wink.... I already wrote in some thread that under the Afrians the Turks will have tactical success, but strategically - they will lose ..... and you are right, they will whine ....

            Options for resistance, guerrilla warfare is the path to self-destruction. There is an option to agree to remain within Syria as an autonomy. The fact that they rejected, having heard from the Americans that the United States would help to assemble a single Kurdistan.

          In a direct clash, the Turks of the Kurds will be rolled out with the help of aviation, but the Turks can actually wash themselves against the partisans.

          However, one cannot speak of monolithic unity among the Kurds. If the YPG leadership does not even want to talk about cooperation with the "regime", the Afrin administration officially called on Assad to deploy troops on the borders of the canton and thereby protect the integrity of Syria (ha ha!).

              Maybe. Moreover, the Syrian authorities pass Kurdish columns with various assistance from Manbij to Afrin.

          hi , Andrew.
          These "guys" certainly know how to fight, but everyone wants to live. The Turks gave them, the Americans threw them and the "guys" asked for peace from Assad (which had to be done half a year ago). Now to do this when guns and tanks are booming and planes bombing is very problematic.

          if the Kurds have unity, I agree with Cherny that the situation may end badly for the Turks. I suspect something from the very beginning that the Turks do not have much of a task to crush the Kurds, but this is the US game to capture the Athens enclave with the introduction of the US "peacekeeping contingent" .. The Kurds here probably tried to play on the contradictions of the USA and the Russian Federation and Turkey, too, ..

    Killed 303 Kurdish fighters. As a result of air raids. They have something there, dudes with calculators running after planes, or am I stupid? Finger, they seem to sky, before calculating the losses of the enemy. But the Turks there are hammering sickly, apparently.

    Sorry for the Kurds, of course crying They believed the Americans, they promised that they would have their own state and would help them, but they themselves threw them. In short, they need to go to Assad with confession, then everything will end. And the Americans, when it gets hot, they throw all their "allies", since they consider them their vassals. request

    The Turks exchanged Afrin for a gas pipe, so this ethnic branch of the Kurds can now rely almost on themselves. We are waiting for reports of sabotage in Turkey, the repetition of the feats for the destruction of buses with pilots.

    You can guess for a long time who will destroy each other and how. But no one will give the Kurds the oil region. If they go to bow to Assad, then something will decide ... and Russia will not stand aside.
