Turkey took the lead from the United States in the fight against jihadists in Syria?

27
On the territory of Turkey, mainly in its capital district and directly in the city of Ankara, as сообщает Turkish news agency “Haber Turk”, a massive detention of radical jihadists.


28 December 2018 of the Anterra Anti-Terrorist Department of the Ankara Police Department successfully arrested 52 from 64 suspected of having links with the extremist Islamic State group (* banned in the Russian Federation). The search and detention of the remaining 12 suspects is currently ongoing.

The question arises: if the Turkish security forces have long been aware of the existence of a sufficiently large jihadist community in the official capital of the country, then why didn’t their activity be eliminated earlier, but they only had to hold an operation to detain them when they supposedly showed their active struggle with IG before Donald Trump?



According to Turkish police officers, a certain amount of cold and firearms was confiscated from the arrested persons. weapons, cash collected as “jihad donations”, as well as documents and propaganda materials confirming their connection with international terrorists.

Apparently, the operation was directly related to the recent decision of the US President to withdraw American troops from Syria, in connection with which the Turkish President assured his overseas counterpart (who had recently waged an economic war against his country) that “the Turkish army will take over the leadership baton of to combat jihadists in Syria and quickly and successfully destroy the last remnants of the "Islamic state" in this country. "

Well, Turkey, it must be said, never suffered from modesty, and regarding the elimination of the last hotbeds of resistance of the radical caliphatists in Syria, we will see how events will develop, perhaps it would have been more if Ankara did not interfere with the decision of Damascus, Tehran and Moscow to Idlib the problem.

    Idlib’s turn will come sooner or later, now they’ll take up territories that were previously controlled by Kurds and mattresses. then it will come to idlib. I thought it was a sinful thing that I’ll deal with the idlib first and then with the Euphrates, but it turned out the other way around. donald surprised

    If the Turkish security agencies have long known about the existence of a fairly large community of jihadists in the official capital of the country, then why did they not eliminate its activities earlier, and carried out a detention operation only when it was necessary to show their allegedly active struggle with IS * in front of Donald Trump?

    And why did you decide that before Trump? smile Maybe in front of another global player? Trump leaves, you need to show your work in front of another force.

      is it really in front of China ?? fellow

      I think that nothing will work out for the Turks. Also, as it does not work for all countries directly bordering Syria. The reason is religion itself, in Islam, sad as it may be. Or rather, in the way in which Islam is interpreted officially! profess quite handshake and very rich countries of the Arabian Peninsula.

      Yes, because this opinion (or analytics) is in the News section.

      I also did not understand why the author came to the conclusion that Ankara is demonstrating its work in the fight against jihadists specifically for Trump. There is such a concept as operational necessity, which is used by all the intelligence services of the world, when, having identified several people and establishing operational surveillance for them, they go out to the entire network, after which it is neutralized. This is supported by the fact that the Turks have a list of 64 suspects. I doubt that they would go directly to the police to "register" as extremists. Recently, our special services carried out an operation to neutralize the members of "Hiz but Tahrir" at several addresses in several districts of Tatarstan, only when all the persons involved in the organization were identified. And so, if one or two suspects were immediately covered, the others would have fled. It worked right.

          So you need to intelligently measure your "Wishlist" with the possibilities. Assad offered the Kurds wide autonomy, they wanted to achieve (with the help of the Americans) full independence and territories that did not belong to them. The Americans "threw" them, like suckers, and gave them to the Turks for destruction, so they howled, and asked Assad for a "pardon", but how it will turn out further - Allah does not know. Will Assad butt the Turks for the apostate Kurds? I doubt it.

            ,, they wanted to achieve (with the help of the Americans) complete independence and territories that did not belong to them ,,
            - Well here you have to say not quite right. Kurds live in these territories before modern Syria was formed. By the way, the Turks during the Ottoman Empire arranged relocation, they expelled about 25 thousand Kurds from Anatolia to Syria, but the rest of the Kurds (of which about 3 million in Syria) lived here for at least 900 years, or even more.

    The Turks decided that they were given indulgence to seize the Syrian territories? I suppose they are VERY mistaken. And the United States made sure that Manbij instantly switched to Assad laughing and the Turkish occupation of the eastern coast of Euphrates has become very doubtful ...

      That's for sure ! In a telephone conversation, Trump said to Erdogan: - ".. I'm leaving, sort it out yourself .."
      Erdogan took it as - "you dream of re-creating the New Ottoman Empire, the flag is in your hands." There will be problems, contact the United States. The main thing is not to go for rapprochement with China and Russia. yes hi

    in this connection, the Turkish president assured his overseas counterpart (who recently waged an economic war against his country) that "the Turkish army will take over the leadership in the fight against jihadists in Syria and quickly and successfully destroy the last remnants of the Islamic State in this country ".

    These "leaders" almost sent an entire country with the entire local region "out" if not for Russia.

      Colleague, this (this one!) Eagle is a symbol of the USA. Such is the applied ornithology.

      Although - manufacturers of postcards and Junkers somehow managed to put it on a card for Victory Day, I remember request

    It seems more likely that the partners from the SGA shifted their costs to combat Assad to Turkey. Now the Syrian Kurds, abandoned by the Pentagon and did not believe Russia's guarantees at one time, should again make their choice - to fight on the 2nd front (Turkey-Syria) or become loyal to Damascus, return to Syria as autonomy and force the Turks to retire. If the Kurds are led by not completely crazy, then the choice is clear, unless of course they split into different groups. hi
