Erdogan announced the start of an operation in northern Syria: tanks cross the border

136
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan crossed the very “red line” that was recently announced in Washington. Recall that in the US administration, the “red line” meant the beginning of the Turkish military operation in northern Syria - in areas of compact Kurdish residence. And today, Erdogan officially announced the start of such an operation.





According to the latest information, the Turkish armed forces in northern Syria joined with the armed groups of the so-called SSA (Free Syrian Army) and began fighting against Kurdish units. Turkish Tanks enter Syrian territory, crossing the border.

Turkey’s opponent in this situation is Kurdish groups from the Syrian Democratic Union (SDS) and representatives of the armed wing of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which were added to the list of terrorists in Ankara.

Erdogan stated that the operation is carried out not only against the PKK, but also against ISIS terrorists (* prohibited in the Russian Federation). According to him, "the Turkish army will create a corridor near the southern Turkish borders, which will be free from terrorists." At the same time, the Western media reminded Erdogan that there were no ISIS * militants in the north of the SAR for a long time, adding that the Turkish president wants to legitimize the military operation against the Kurds with a reminder of this group.

According to unofficial data, the Turkish troops in the past few days, being ready, did not start a ground operation, waiting for the American contingent to leave the areas east of the Euphrates in the north of the SAR.

Recall that Trump previously promised to “destroy the Turkish economy” if the troops of this country “do something wrong.”

    The Americans again threw the Kurds.
    Erdogan drives green to yellow.
    The yellow ones will return to Assad.
    Erdogan will take the greens.
    The victor in this situation is the side that did not take a single shot, but returned the territory to its ally.

          The Americans withdrew their military, and Trump, in his usual manner, warned Erdogan not to let the Turkish warriors hurt the Americans. Stoltenberg (NATO) called on Erdogan to be more restrained (?!) On the offensive. Putin, in a telephone conversation, also called on Erdogan to be more restrained (?!) In the offensive. This is directly a collective conspiracy against some kind of Kurds. In this situation, not the Turks, but the Kurds are likely to wash themselves.

        With them, except for the striped ones, no one wanted to talk - in the region, their interests contradict everyone else. And even when the striped ones called them into "allies", everyone was amazed - supposedly, the US and Turkey are doing things together, how can the US talk to the Kurds? And the striped ones were simply not going to abide by their part of the agreements. And now, following their plan, the striped ones simply give the Kurds to be torn apart by the Turks. So you shouldn't be fooled by Trump's shouts in the press - this is just an attempt by the fraudster to preserve the appearance of decency.

        They agreed to broad autonomy, as far as I understand. If Russia wanted to convince Assad of any concessions to the Kurds, taking into account the existing ties of this people with our country, I think that the Kurds would not go to fight for the United States, but would stand on the side of Russia and Assad. Someone simply failed in the relevant work in this direction, or did not work at all - the Turkish stream may have interfered with it.

          Yes, sir, please refer to the defects. It's just that the Kurds decided to sit with one fifth point on three stools and "throw" Turkey, Syria, Russia, Iraq and Iran, believing that "America is with them", now this fifth point will deservedly burst at the seams, while the Kurds are on their heads. the stools won't split. Their only salvation is to throw themselves at the feet of Assad and merge their armed formations into the SAA, simultaneously returning the territories they hold under the control of Damascus, which will stop the advance of the Turks. The creation of Kurdistan was in the interests of only one US country, and therefore all of the above countries are interested in the complete closure of the Kurdish project. It's just that the Turks have more opportunities and resources for this, as well as a reasonable motivation to prevent an attempt to include part of Turkey's territory into Kurdistan. Prevention, it is so ... to extinguish in the bud.

              This "ha-ha" was discussed a year and a half ago, when the Kurdish chiefs, under pressure from the Turks, were already almost agreeing to unite their armed formations of almost 50 thousand bayonets with the SAA, but the Americans tried and the Kurds left this topic , although the agreement was almost reached. Now the Americans are leaving, and the Kurds will be taught. So in this situation it is "ha ha" their only salvation. Let's take a look. hi

          Whose eyes? The Turks are fighting the Kurds, who, in turn, in Turkey behave approximately like the Basayevs with the Khattabs in Russia. Assad (dad) and the Syrians fought with the Kurds for many years. The Kurds sold themselves to the Americans, and that's the answer. Mustafa Barzani - the father of the current head of Iraqi Kurdistan, Masoud Barzani, at one time transferred the Kurds to the USSR, but he did not like that he was not allowed to live, as in the Middle Ages, and he took the Kurds back. Sorry for the Kurds. This is the only multi-million people without statehood. But its leaders have earned a reputation of "low social responsibility" as they periodically rush from one "owner" to another.

              Most likely, in exchange for silence during the stripping of the SAA and VKS Idlib and parts of Latakia. Now it is more important for Assad and Russia. And then what will happen, will be later. Moreover, Erdogan, at least for now, is not going to capture all of Rojava. Up to 40 km along the border. And here it turns out an interesting movie. Kurds are in complete isolation: the Turkish army, the SAA, the pro-Iranian Hashd-Shaabi. Maybe they will allow them to sell oil a little cheaply so that they do not die of hunger, but, most likely, they will persistently persuade them to accept Assad’s terms. So, Russia can confidently look into the eyes of the Syrians.

              So then it is, but not quite. Do you understand what this is? The fact is that the Kurds at the moment, with the support of the United States, have created their own state on the eastern bank of the Euphrates. And well, if only in the territories of compact residence of the Kurds. But they went south and captured the main oil-bearing regions of Syria in the province of Deir Ez-Zor, where the main population is Arabs. And this already directly affects the economic situation of Syria itself. Russia's task is to help Assad in taking control of these areas. The Turks, having launched an offensive against the Kurds in the north, will force them to again recognize Assad’s power over them. Otherwise, after Turkey’s seizure of the northern territories of Syrian Kurdistan, Damascus will begin its operation to seize the rest of their territories.

              Our ally did not control this territory. The current events, in my opinion, will just push the Kurds to negotiate with Assad. We had proposed to them to come to an agreement with Damascus, but they were seduced by the American promises, and now they are raking them off.

      Kurdistan with access to the Mediterranean is needed only by the United States and the Kurds. Assad and the Turks don't need it. Assad himself is not able to drive the Kurds into the stall, so most likely there will be nothing beyond the "notes of protest". Ours don't give a damn, as long as the Turks do not interfere (rather, on the contrary). Therefore, ours will either keep silent, or say "Ay-yay-yay, it's not good." But no more.

      We will not say anything. Everything is agreed there. Did you not pay attention to the fact that the official Damascus somehow sluggishly reacts to the beginning of the movement and makes more "routine phrases" rather than "declares decisive protests and ultimatums"? Everything rested only on the depth of the security zone the Turks would provide. The Americans wanted 5 km, Russia, Syria and Iran agreed on 15 km, Turkey initially announced 40 km, but in the process, converged on 30 km.

      Then they left, only how many weapons they had already transferred to the Kurds - "The United States continued to supply weapons to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF): about 200 military pickups loaded with weapons were sent to the settlement of Tel Bide, which is under the control of the Kurds."
      "Nothing is new under the moon: What is, what was" - Let's remind that earlier the Kurdish security forces refused to come into contact with the Syrian government forces, preferring to seek support from the United States. Now, when the Turkish army is conducting a large-scale military operation against the YPG in the north of Aleppo province, the Kurdish field commanders suddenly remembered the possibility of joint actions with the SAA and that the Syrian army is "responsible for Syrian territory." https://topwar.ru/135911-kurdskie-komandiry-saa-dolzhna-pomoch-nam-protivostoyat-tureckoy-armii.html

    "Turkish tanks enter Syrian territory, crossing the border" poor Syria: once a prosperous country with a well-trained and armed army, but now the country is in chaos: besides the legitimate President Assad, will there be five more small-town "presidents" or what do they call themselves? Instead of a unified army, there are: SAA, SSA (why is it free?) Kurdish militias, local self-defense forces. Naturally, in such conditions there are many who want to "fish in troubled waters"

      Don’t you think that the Kurds got everyone there? Russia followed them from the age of 15-17 persuaded to agree with Assad, they decided that the Americans were more profitable and squeezed out part of the oil industry from the Arabs under their roof and drove them out of their lands, plus the ongoing spilli-villi in southeast Turkey, with the active help of the PKK from Syria, again under the Amer’s roof. Well, what to do with these? They cannot agree normally, they cannot calm down. They didn’t live with amers there, but Turks and Syrians, and it was necessary to negotiate with them when offered.

It is beneficial for him ... he plans to settle Syrian refugees in the buffer territory, as he recently urged the interested parties to chip in this matter. The refugees in Turkey were well received and loyal to Erdogan, so the partisans would not work with the Kurds there, moreover, the Kurds turned on themselves the whole local population there and 30 km of the buffer does not seem to end laughing And in the end - the Syrians in Syria, Erdogan love and construction contracts and oil calculation and Assad is grateful to him ... in general, some buns for 50 years at least ...

            Turkish army attacks Syrian army in response to shelling in Idlib

            The Turkish military attacked the positions of the Syrian army after the Turkish observation post in the Idlib de-escalation zone was shelled. This was reported by Anadolu agency with reference to a statement by the Turkish Ministry of Defense.

            The statement said that Turkish artillery and armored vehicles inflicted an “effective blow” on the positions of supporters of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

            The military attache of Russia in Ankara was informed about the incident. The agency informed Moscow that Turkey was ready to give the “toughest answer” to the shelling of observers in Idlib, the agency said

And what are the tasks of the FSA in Syria and with whom it is fighting, and then write that Turkey is not fighting against Syria. The war has been going on for a long time, but it is hybrid - Turkey trains and supplies the militants, and they, in turn, are already fighting against the SA.
