Ankara warned in the language of "Point" and "Gradov"

52



While extremely alarming signals continue to come from the southern regions of the provinces of Homs and Deir ez-Zor about the strengthening of the American and British military contingents with heavy armored vehicles and army aviation to conduct large-scale offensive operations against Syrian government forces in the direction of the Euphrates riverbed, an equally difficult operational and tactical situation persists in the provinces of Hama, Idlib and Aleppo, where the Turkish leadership completely lost its sense of proportion and remembered the times of the Ottoman Empire and was trying to indicate its worthless presence on possible larger area of ​​the north-west of the Syrian Arab Republic. Why is it worthless?

Yes, because the strategic success of the pro-Turkish militants from the Free Syrian Army was achieved exclusively within the southwestern, central and northern regions of the Afrin canton, where all the defense was laid on the shoulders of the Kurdish YPG / YPJ people's self-defense detachments except for anti-tank complexes of the first and second generations, including “Baby”, “Fagot” and “Konkurs-M”. They regularly prevented the introduction of units of the 5 of the regular Syrian army assault corps into Afrin, for which they paid with the loss of territories.

Both the obstinacy characteristic of the mentality of Kurdish field commanders in Afrin and the dependence of Bashar al-Assad together with the command of the Syrian Arab army on the agreements reached within the framework of the regional geopolitical ligament Russia-Turkey-de-escalation Idlib and Aleppo provinces. As a result, the Syrian leadership is left with an extremely narrow window of opportunity to influence the situation in Afrin. It was reduced only to the creation of the Nubl corridor, allowing the deployment of armed Syrian militias belonging to the FNL (National Defense Forces or NDF, National Defense Forces), as well as Hezbollah units to Afrin. Without heavy armor and artillery, all these volunteer formations, unfortunately, could not defend the northern and central lands of Afrin, although they demonstrated high endurance and morale before the many times superior FSA and regular Turkish army forces. After all, it took almost 2 a month to create an Afrin boiler at times technologically equipped with pro-Turkish forces!

As a result, the Turkish Armed Forces and the pro-Turkish FSA militants managed to form a powerful enough Northern Front (which also includes Al-Nusra militants) capable of radically influencing the strategic picture in the provinces of Hama, Idlib, Aleppo, and also in the northern part of Latakia. As we predicted in our previous work, the Turkish operation “Olive Branch” was focused exclusively on the occupation of the northern regions of Syria, which Ankara still considers as appendages of its southern silt Hatay, Gaziantep and Kilis. There can be no peaceful return of Afrin and Idlib to Syrian sovereignty, as confirmed by Al-Jazeera news agency 16 in March 2018, and then the main adviser to Turkish President Ibrahim Kalyn.

Even during the final stage of the Olive Branch operation, Erdogan and his entourage announced in advance that it would continue on the territory of the Manbija region, as well as on the eastern bank of the Euphrates, which was recorded in the more global operations of the Euphrates Shield at the end of 2016. As a result, it turned out that this is pure bluff. The Turkish Armed Forces and the FSA formations under their control were neither morally nor technologically completely unprepared for the collision with the Manbij forces of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which on a regular basis will receive military-technical assistance from the United States and other Western coalition states. In addition, Turkey began to back down even at the official level. So, according to the information agency RIA News"Referring to informed sources in Free Syrian Army, the NE of Turkey and the opposition militarized pro-Turkish forces do not plan an offensive against the city of Manbij, unless they are abandoned by US forces and the SDF. Naturally, no one plans to retreat from the city.

In this case, the Turks have developed a "plan B", consisting in the storming of the Kurdish city of Sinjar, located in the north-western part of Iraq, which is controlled by the fighters of the Kurdistan Workers' Party. In this cunning maneuver, Ankara relies on the humble silence of the Iraqi leadership, to whom the destruction of all the existing PKK units by the Turkish Air Force and MTR is extremely advantageous. But this is only part of the problems created during the implementation of Erdogan’s imperial ways.

The rest of the headache still falls on the shoulders of the Syrian military leadership and the Russian military contingent in Syria. In particular, the capture of the city of Afrin by the Turkish army was not enough. The fighting gradually shifted from the central part of the canton towards the Tell Rifat salient and began to cover the Nubl corridor. It was here that the first surprise was presented to the Turks. Without waiting for the pro-Turkish opposition units to approach the dense areas of Az-Zahra and Nubl, units of the Syrian Arab Army advanced in advance to strategically important settlements in the southern part of the Afrin canton - Burj el-Ques, Ekuibah, Dair el-Jamal, El-Alaksah and Tell Rifat, where strongholds were erected, covered by armored vehicles. The YPG, which retreated from the central part of Afrin, also formed their own defensive orders. The introduction of heavy armored vehicles of government troops into Afrin became known thanks to a report on March 19 on the Twitter news page of the Aleppo24 edition. As a consequence, even using tank units of the Turkish army from the side of the Afrin River did not allow the FSA formations to approach the territory controlled by the SAA at a distance that allows them to conduct aimed fire from small arms. The Turks managed to capture only the villages of Barad and Kimar; further progress stopped.

An even more significant event in the increasingly overwhelming Syrian-Turkish conflict is the beginning of the use by the Syrian army of large-caliber barreled and rocket artillery. In particular, 19 March 2018, the Syrian was forced to apply the MLRS BM-21 "Grad" in the region of the mountain Jabal Anak, located north of the city of Anadan (northeast "Idlibskogo gadyushnik"). The fact is that the Turkish army sent to the area a powerful military convoy of more than 100 units (BM, bridge-laying, tanker, bulldozer, MXT OBN Sabra, etc.). In accordance with the official data of Ankara, this technique is designed exclusively for the construction of the 60-th observation post north of Anadan within the framework of the notorious so-called “northern de-escalation zone”, covering the provinces of Idlib and Aleppo. But for what purpose are the bridge laying vehicles in the convoy ?! To do this, you need to look at the map of Aleppo Province near Aleppo.

We see that both the central city and its surroundings are covered by a rather narrow river Kueike, the channel width of which in some areas barely exceeds fifteen meters, which may be quite enough for the effective use of bridge layers (assault bridges). The only conclusion that remains is that the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Turkey is counting on an offensive operation in the eastern direction, the aim of which could be to capture the city of Aleppo and expel the government troops of the Syrian Arab Republic. Naturally, for the implementation of such an ambitious plan, it will be necessary to involve the FSA and al-Nusra formations from the “Idlib gadyushnik”, which will have to force the Kueike near the village of Wadi Durus (south of Aleppo). The units of the Free Syrian Army from the city of El-Bab, who will have to shut the "boiler" southeast of Aleppo, can advance to these formations. Guided by just such a strategy, the Turks are sending bridge laying machines to Anadan. Everything is very serious! We let them in Afrin, gave up the slack - we are preparing for tougher trials, and at the same time we are looking at the US Armed Forces and learning how to support our allies with the example of covering the Kurds in Manbidzh and Deir ez-Zor.

The Grads went into action, and this is already commendable: a full package of 40 unguided rockets from a position near the city of Khandarat was released on the Turkish convoy and the observation point under construction. It is noteworthy that even after such a warning, Ankara did not settle down and continued provocations in the north of Aleppo. Late in the evening of March 21, the T-155 Turkish Firtina self-propelled guns began shelling the Noubl area, and then the more strategically important Tell-Jibin, controlled by the Syrian Arab Army. The shortest highway for the transportation of reinforcements to the unoccupied part of Afrin “Aleppo - Tell-Rifat” passes through this city. Obviously, the Turkish gunners wanted to temporarily arrest the arrival of heavy CAA armor and new NDF troops in the canton in order for the SSA to get at least a couple of hours to capture the villages of Esh-Shayuh and Ein Daknakh. But these plans were not destined to be accomplished, since an impressive defensive "barrier" was created in advance in the Tell-Rifata area. All of the above events relate exclusively to the Eastern Front of the “Idlib Gadyushnik”, where the Syrian government forces will have to take part in many more grandiose clashes with the Turkish army to preserve Syrian sovereignty over the city of Aleppo and the southern part of the canton of Afrin. But there is also the Western Front, reports from which come several times less often than from Aleppo. And this area is no less problematic.

We are all well aware that such cities as “Idlib Gadushnik”, such as Jisr al-Shugur, Al-Tufahyah and Kalaat al-Madik, are a real breeding ground for those pro-Turkish oppositional terrorist groups FSA and Tahrir al-Sham, who thanks to Turkish specialists mastered the basics of using unmanned tactical aircraft as an air component of strikes against military facilities of the Russian Aerospace Forces at Khmeimim airbase and in its vicinity. Moreover, it is here that the training base is located, where training of militants moving to the provinces of Hama and Lattakia for sabotage, reconnaissance and subversive missions against the Syrian army and the Russian military contingent is carried out. The fruits of this activity were the mortar strike on the Khmeimim airbase on the eve of the New Year, as well as the “star raid” of improvised drones carrying homemade mines with contact fuses on the suspensions to strike at the aircraft on the runways and the runway. As we have noted in our previous works, such a high probability of repeating such attacks is related to Hmeimim’s proximity to the western border of the “Idlib Gadyushnik” and the above cities (from 35 to 50 km), which allows unmanned percussion tools to get to Xmeimim of all 20 - 30 mines .

So, 19 March 2018 of the year, according to “Twitter” - the eyewitness “@WaelRussi”, became aware of the inclusion of an air-raid siren at the Khmeimim airbase, which could be connected with the refining of a possible massive rocket attack on Syrian military targets from the Navy and the coalition air force, and with the already familiar threat of a massive strike by the combat drones that flew in from Idlib; All the more so since the day before the information had come about the interception of an unknown air object near Hmeimim. A positive point is that all the incidents with the hand-crafted enemy attack drones end with their destruction by means of the Pantsir-C1 anti-aircraft missile and artillery systems defending Russian objects. The negative detail is that these incidents tend to become more frequent. This suggests the following and most appropriate conclusions.

Firstly, Khmeimim’s airbase is tested on the possibility of an “anti-missile umbrella” to repel an MRAU with the help of unmanned aircraft from idlib militants Tahrir ash-Sham. And not only from the side of the “Idlib Gadyushnik”, but also from the Mediterranean air direction, where American AUGs operate, as well as the concealed submarine carriers of the UGM-109E “Tomahawk Block IV” (TMMM) strategic cruise missiles in the Oharo submarines modified by PLARK (SSGN). So, the last unknown means of air attack, which was reported by eyewitnesses 18 March, was approaching the airbase from the sea. It is likely that in terms of “probing” Hmeimim into the gaps in the “air defense umbrella”, Ankara and Washington are working together, in favor of the North Atlantic alliance, hiding behind ostentatious “palace quarrels” and diverging positions on Syrian Kurdistan. Do not look at Erdogan’s loud statements regarding the White House, and the Pentagon’s discontent with the plans to buy the Russian Triumph C-400 air defense system; all this is pure circus performance. And when it comes to such strategically important objects as Avb Hmeimim or the PTEC Tartus, you need to remember Turkey’s membership in the NATO bloc. After all, it is not by chance that Turkey quickly retreated on the issue of an attack on the Kurdish Manbij. This is not only the weakness shown to the United States, but also one of the indicators of the presence of certain agreements, which are unlikely to be announced in the media. And these tests, our "umbrella" is held at a decent level!

Secondly, the next such "star raid of drones" can occur at the time of the rocket attack of the coalition forces on the military facilities of Syria, so that the total number of units of high-precision weapons exceeded the number of target channels of the C-400, C-300B4 and Pantyrey-C1 anti-aircraft missile divisions. The 92Н6Е and СНР 9С32М multifunction radars, as well as the C-400 and C-300B4 operators, face the need to select a much larger number of EHVs, among which you will need to select the most priority ones. Huge funds today in the West European and American special services, as well as in the Turkish ones, have been attracted to the testing of Hamim's “strength”. And however strange it may sound, “Tahrir ash-Sham” with its drones is now one of these “test links”.


Elements OTBR 9М79 "Point", which fell near the Turkish city of Yaladadzhi


Such an intensification of pro-Turkish militants on the western front of Idlib (including developers and UAV operators), generated at the suggestion of Ankara and Washington, did not go unnoticed by the command of the Syrian Arab Army and the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces. As 16 of March also became known, Syrian artillery did a bit of work on the FSA stronghold and Tahrir ash-Sham on the Western Front of the Idlib Enclave, the city of Jisr al-Shugur. Here is one of the main transshipment bases for the movement of Turkish military goods to jihadists, arranging attacks in the provinces of Hama and Lattakia. A little later, the network spread information about the "mysterious" fall of the operational-tactical ballistic missile 9М79 "Point" in the territory of Turkish Hatay silt (near the town of Yaladaci) with attached photographs of the night survey of the site of the fall. It was published by the Turkish military observer Yusuf Akbaba on his Twitter page.

Here we see minimal damage to the body of the 9М79 / -1 product. Taking into account that, with a stable combat mode, OTBR “Tochka” approaches the target at an angle of the order of 90 degrees (for more efficient optimization of the fragmentation sector, realizing high flying speed and maximally complicating the ability to be captured by the radar of the enemy anti-missile defenses) to collapse even without triggering the high-explosive fragmentation warhead 9H123F. Consequently, there was a failure in the operation of the command-gyro 9B64 / -1 device or the discrete-analog computing device 9B65, which led to a flat trajectory of the rocket with a complete loss of controllability and speed. That is what kept her body intact. The possibility of intercepting Turkish means of air defense is also not confirmed, since there are no traces from the damaging elements of high-explosive fragmentation warheads of the MIM-23K missile on the missile body. Surprised perfectly calculated coordinates of its fall - in a desert area, in 2 km from the Turkish-Syrian border: and you will not stick, and the warning is more than eloquent.

The climax in the plot of the Turkish side's warnings about the unacceptability of the actions of the FSA and "al-Nusra" formations against the government forces of the SAR and the Khmeimim airbase was yesterday's point airstrike on the positions of the pro-Turkish forces in the border city with Turkey Harim. It was not known yet, our VKS or Air Force of Syria, but one thing is known: the times of “soft, fluffy and compliant” Damascus and Moscow are coming to an end.

      Not in the subject, but I’ll post it wherever I can so that more people can read it. Because this is most likely my last comment.
      I want to speak about the "freedom" of speech on this site. Below I quote yesterday’s letter from Skomorokhov and my answer to him. Out of the blue, he threw me three warnings, simply because I dared to express my point of view on the site’s policy and on the article “THE MOST” by Roman Skomorokhov ... I have encroached on the holy Panim.

      You violated the rules of the site, admitted in the comment:
      "Trolling, provocation: Only here for such expressions of thoughts on this" free "site, we may well go to the ban ...

      Well, who is to blame for you that you are a masochist? "In the article topwar.ru/138216-rossiya-vpered-v-buduschee. The future of Russia: saving on democracy You have 9 violations. Site rules

      What Roma, really pricks his eyes? Do not like it when stroking the wool? But what about freedom of speech? And now it’s called trolling, I somehow didn’t think about it. That is, any statement that you or Smirnov does not like can now be brought under the concept of trolling or flood, depending on which foot you got up today. In general, I don’t give a damn deeply, you can ban me for good, I’m tired of participating in your circus, where there are only two opinions, one of yours and the other is not right. You already turned the site into a cesspool, where frank trolls, dugouts and your sculpted friends flying the Jewish flag are happy to water Russia with slop and nothing happens to them for that. Notice the very Russia for which you allegedly so zealously care. You are intensely expelling from the site those who, albeit with different views, but really root for Russia. But by canceling the minuses, you filled the site with outright Nazis, liberoids, anti-Soviet, ukrobots and other dishonesty. Well, a flag in your hands and a drum around your neck, maybe in the State Department and your efforts will appreciate it. Just look, do not overdo it, otherwise you never know how it happens in life!
      Let me take leave, I have the honor!
      P.S. I’m waiting for the ban, and even I’m really tired of your Russophobic coven ... negative

      Again Damantsev and again everything is upside down. These horror stories- "Ankara was warned in the language of" Points "and" Gradov "" - except for the townsfolk from among the users of the site and maybe Damantsev himself is not afraid of anyone from the word absolutely! To begin with, it took the Turks 2 months not because of the “low fighting efficiency of the Turkish troops,” but solely because the Turks tried as hard as possible not to hurt civilians. It would be different, Afrin would be taken in a week. All of these "reports of the barbaric bombing of peaceful Afghans" are taken from fake Kurdish sources. And so far they have not touched Manbij, not because of the “staunchness” of the Kurds, but the unresolved issue with the Americans. Erdogan spoke with Trump yesterday on this issue. We will see the result in the near future. And scaring someone asadushka is also not the case. Assad now is nothing of itself. He can’t even resist the remnants of ISIS - yesterday the militants captured a whole block in Damascus, having wiped out the Asadites from there. 2 days ago, the Asad forces tried to set up a checkpoint on the path of the Turkish troops. By air strike, the checkpoint was destroyed along with the colonel and 7 other Syrian military.

      I’ll upset you, if everyone is bogged down, then all the players .... And further developments will depend on the development of the situation, the legitimacy of the actions.
      It seems to me that the next step after the elimination of the Idlib adder should be elections, including territories occupied by Kurds and de-escalation zones. And if there is a refusal to hold elections there, it is safe to crush these enclaves, since this is a direct attempt to secession of territory from the country.

    The author does not take into account the ships of the Russian Navy located in this water area. It is they who will be involved in striking the launch vehicle rockets. Therefore, a direct attack from the sea is unlikely. Politicians can talk and threaten as much as they like, the military will have to disentangle the mess. A fire before World War II can swell instantly. No wonder the Pentagon (and there are far from fools) insisted on limiting the powers of the chief commander. Without the direct instructions of Trump, no one will take the liberty of ordering a massive blow, and he is not a suicide. The stakes are too high and the result is not obvious. The Skripal scandal was inflated to divert attention from Syria, so that the opportunity with the least political costs would calm the situation down a bit.

    "units" again .... why can’t you translate as units? For example, "a powerful military convoy of more than 100 units of military equipment (BM, bridge spacers, tankers, bulldozers, M60T Sabra MBT, etc.)."

    [/ quote] Surprisingly well-calculated coordinates of its fall - in an uninhabited area, 2 km from the Turkish-Syrian border: it’s not easy to find fault, and the warning is more than eloquent. [quote]

    Well, if so, for the sake of intimidation it costs $ 220, then either the Syrians are not friends with the head, or they gave them an illiquid stock)))

    Again Damantsev and again everything is upside down. These horror stories- "Ankara was warned in the language of" Points "and" Gradov "" - except for the townsfolk from among the users of the site and maybe Damantsev himself is not afraid of anyone from the word absolutely! To begin with, it took the Turks 2 months not because of the “low fighting efficiency of the Turkish troops,” but solely because the Turks tried as hard as possible not to hurt civilians. It would be different, Afrin would be taken in a week. All of these "reports of the barbaric bombing of peaceful Afghans" are taken from fake Kurdish sources. And so far they have not touched Manbij, not because of the “staunchness” of the Kurds, but the unresolved issue with the Americans. Erdogan spoke with Trump yesterday on this issue. We will see the result in the near future. And scaring someone asadushka is also not the case. Assad now is nothing of itself. He can’t even resist the remnants of ISIS - yesterday the militants captured a whole block in Damascus, having wiped out the Asadites from there. 2 days ago, the Asad forces tried to set up a checkpoint on the path of the Turkish troops. By air strike, the checkpoint was destroyed along with the colonel and 7 other Syrian military.

    Damantsev’s articles can not be read, and even more so discuss them)))

    Well, Assad’s army doesn’t have the corresponding opportunity to carry out degrees of preparedness, they even treat expensive weapons like trash.

      You know, every person has the right to a small, but his own, war. Based on this, imagine who the country was when it fought last time. Who is fighting now? It’s those who have nothing more to do. They are armed, equipped with everything necessary, for shooting. They wet each other in these hot spots. Mutually eliminated. And there’s no escape from this. This is life. It’s just that thoughts about a happy future are put into our heads, and we can’t understand what they are fighting for. For what.?)

    Enlightenment has come or are we waiting for the official declaration of war? The more we verbally express concern, the earlier the war will come to us. And everyone respects power, from the West to the East.

        Unfortunately, they have whole institutions planning the future of our planet.
        And if they want to push Russia and Turkey, then this will certainly happen. Our goal should be to weaken the Turks before the fight. USA needs infantry (meat). As Nazarbayev said, we are 200 million Turks, we are united by force.
        Sorry for the frank comment. The Turk of Central Asia never considered opponents, but it all depends on the leaders of these countries.

      By the way, it should be noted that any bombing or shelling is just another attempt to somehow undermine the situation. Like snipers on the Maidan. The methods of constant confrontation have long been debugged. Let the local fight. Russia has its own economic interests in this region. And Assad is just an excuse to be there. Now that you’ve come to the end, you have to be there and minimize your own costs, but use the available .

    In addition, Turkey began to back down even at the official level. Thus, according to the RIA Novosti news agency, citing informed sources in the Free Syrian Army, Turkish Turkish forces and opposition militarist groups are not planning an offensive on the city of Manbij unless US forces and SDF units leave it

    the author should rely less on Kurdish sources and reprints from them. the Turks stated the exact opposite - that they would not storm the manbij if the sdf was dumped from there for the Euphrates to the maturity-pozdorov. the further presence there of the apricots of the Turks does not bother. This is exactly what Turkey-USA talks are going on.

    As a result, the Syrian leadership has remained an extremely narrow window of opportunity to influence the situation in Afghanistan. It came down only to the creation of the Nubl corridor, which allows the armed detachments of Syrian militias belonging to the NSO ("National Defense Forces" or NDF, National Defense Forces), as well as Hezbollah units, to be sent to Afrin.

    which the Turks immediately buried without any embarrassment, which made it clear that entering the Syrian regulars would be a big mistake. who warned whom and in what language? I would argue with the headline.

    A “star raid of drones” can also occur at the moment of a rocket attack by coalition forces on Syrian military facilities, so that the total number of precision weapons exceeds the number of target channels of the S-400, S-300B4 and “Shell-S1” anti-aircraft missile divisions. Multifunctional radars 92N6E and SNR 9S32M, as well as operators of the S-400 and S-300V4 systems, will face the need to select a significantly larger number of airborne satellites, among which the choice of the highest priority will be required.


    This, I think, reflects not only the situation in Syria, but in general the state of our armed forces. We have a lot of modern developments and even "having no analogues." But the number of military units is negligible to repulse a massive attack or participate in a protracted conflict. We all remember how the technological Tiger, which has no analogues, lost the T-34 war from a file.

    It seems that there is no longer international law and countries are free to attack each other. Why does Syria not require the UN to recognize Turkey and the US as aggressor states?
