The Syrian army brought down "Hail" on the heads of the Turks

24
The Turkish operation in northwestern Syria has passed the equator. According to Turkish President Recep Erdogan, by the end of next month the Kurds will be knocked out of the canton. The operation itself takes place with varying success, but the initiative is still in the hands of the Turks.


Be that as it may, the Turkish units have not yet managed to get through to the strategically important road that connects Afrin with the rest of Syria. It is for her that the Kurds receive reinforcements as weapons, and manpower. When this artery is cut, the Kurds will be counted for days.

In the meantime, the Turkish Air Force attacked a government checkpoint, killing 7 fighters. In response, Syrian rocket artillery attacked the positions of the Turks. It is reported that Grad-type systems were used for this. This incident suggests that Ankara does not intend to limit itself to the north-west of Syria, and plans to take control of all border areas.

    And what is the result of this “collapse”? Assadists simply fled, leaving the Kurds with their ..... ohm. This morning the Turks took 2 more villages around Afrin. Now only 500 meters separates the position of the SSA and the Turks from the city.

    “The operation itself takes place with varying success” - well, of course, forward movement with minimal losses - now we call it “variable success”
    "Be that as it may, the Turkish units have so far failed to make their way to the strategically important road that links Afrin to the rest of Syria." - but the author doesn’t have the idea that the only way was left by the Turks for the exit of the peaceful people and those fighters who do not want to fight)

    Please note that there is no explanatory information from the Foreign Ministry and the military, for which they allowed the Turks to enter Syria. What will happen next? What arrangements? Even at the rumor level, there's really nothing! Turkey could not be allowed into Syria! The USA and Turkey, how will they be kicked out? And while they are there - there will be no peace!

      He also drew attention to why the Turks are so easily moving to (on) the territory of the SSA ... request
      Maybe the Turks are being pulled into a more serious cauldron, or a lot of independent groups have already gathered at the borders of the Turks, who, according to the agenda, will rush to Turkey as they had to Syria. Therefore, the Turks stop the problem immediately, but the problem is not as simple as it might seem, and even this problem may not be solved .... recourse

        a legally elected heir whose father Hafez al-Assad came to power as a result of a military coup. Poroshenko, whom the people brought to power, the Imperials call the coup, and Assad, who received the throne by inheritance, is the legitimate president)

          A “new friend” appeared on the site. Russians for him are Imperials, and Poroshenko is a matchmaker or brother.
          The daughter of an officer or another hater of Russia?

          Please draw a parallel between Assad (father and son) and between Aliyevs (father and son) and show what the difference is. Or remind you how G. Aliyev came to power on the "bayonets" of S. Huseynov, and then the power passed to his son I. Aliyev.

          Putin became the second president after Yeltsin, who became president after the 91/93 coups. Putin illegally elected?

          After gaining independence from the USSR, Azerbaijan experienced several coups and a string of heads of state. Aliyevs (Heydar, Ilham) gained power by legally elected, but after these coups. Ilham Aliyev illegally elected?

      Fuck Analyst! Why did you all run into Assad ?! Saddam was upset that the world in Iraq, Gaddafi was torn apart, the world in Libya, Yugoslavia was "torn apart" - whoever, "shrugs" the nationalist rabble-in Ukraine, in the Baltic States - all the "defenders" of all possible, and not so, " of values ​​"- stuffed an obscene object in your mouth, who needs it ?! The answer is one: to the one who, like shit in the water, seeks to emerge in this boiling cauldron and “steer the process”, that is, “exceptional”. By and large: who cares, how these or other peoples live, what your dog's business, hegemons are bad! The time will come, they will figure out what and where ... They have scummed all over the world, and Russia is now raking. And one cannot help but rake, otherwise it will come to us. That, by the way, was the calculation-strategy, so to speak.

      I will support your fair anger about the ignorance of the author, and commentators too.
      First, they would have mastered the elementary school, and then they would have gathered in strategists.
      And I’ll add from myself: it seems to me that all these compassionate defenders, that Syria, that Donbass, are in fact the enemies of both the above and Russia.
      After all, they have MLRS widely used in the world by almost all of these are HEADLINES TYPE. It is clear that maybe not GRAD, but LAROM or MLRS, but the sediment remained.

    It’s bad to deal with the Turks. Tricky guys. Either the plane will be shot down, then they will hit Syria. This can’t be left this way. I think that many will agree with me. Vova, what should we do ???

    A month has passed and we can conclude that there is no war between Assad and Turkey. And will not be. Small incidents on the demarcation line were, are and will be, and the fate of Syria is still decided by Moscow, Tehran and Istanbul. And as if some ut did not dream, Turkey is in Syria precisely with the consent of the Syrians themselves. Solves the common Kurdish issue. If the Kurdyuks were at least a little smarter, if they google how the United States is doing with its allies, they would simply fall under Damascus (subject to certain conditions, of course). But they preferred American guarantees. And then Erdogan came. And he will be in Syria until Damascus is strong enough to take Kurdish regions under tight control. And so that the Turks would not be tempted to stay in the occupied areas forever, Russians and Persians look after them. Normal coalition war. Everyone has their own interests, but everyone follows everyone.

    The Turks must be crushed. They are as corrupt as the Ukrainians, and they are also in NATO.
