Turkish Defense Minister: Turkish military will remain in Idlib


Terrorist groups intensified in Idlib province, continuing attacks on government troops. Major General Yuri Borenkov, head of the Russian center for reconciliation of the parties in the SAR, informed of two attacks by terrorists on the positions of government forces in this region over the past couple of days.


The militants “Hayat Tahrir al-Sham”, better known as the Jebhat al-Nusra group banned in Russia, participated in the attacks. They were also supported by fighters of the so-called Syrian National Army. This fact is interesting because SNA units previously belonged to the Syrian Free Army, that is, they operate with Turkish support.

As for official Ankara, it does not intend to weaken its influence on this region. In particular, Turkish Minister of Defense Hulusi Akar, during a meeting with commanders of Turkish units located near the Syrian border, said that due to the aggravation of the situation in Idlib, the Turkish military will not leave its 12 observation posts in this Syrian province. About whether the Turkish Ministry of Defense is going to withdraw its contingent from the Syrian Idlib after the transition of the province to the control of the SAA, Akar did not report.

Commenting on the information about the possible sending of Turkish troops to Libya, the minister noted that the army is ready to defend the rights and interests of its country both in Turkey and abroad.

      in Idlib, the Turkish military will not leave their 12 observation posts in this Syrian province.

      Let yourself stand as a tourist attraction, they can be decorated with ribbons, guided tours.
      The main thing is that the province of Idlib would return to Syrian rule.

        The Chinese are not like the sixes which can be "attracted". They get more benefits without interfering in this mess.

          Does anyone have a map for posting these posts? Maybe they are at key points and control their inviolability of the territory favorable for the militants?

            Turkish military will remain in Idlib

            While the "Kurdish question" at its borders is painful and relevant for Turkey, it will be so

        Welcome soldier
        The Ottoman Empire was already there, and many others too .... so far it turns out that no one has been able to turn back the clock.
        We'll see.

      Well, he already throws the African corps. The advanced detachments of tame babakhs (light green) are already in the database against Haftar.

      They say that Saranj promises exclusive rights to development and production after the victory, ratification of the permanent presence of the Turkish army and navy in Libya (like Qatar), and other preferences for Turkish companies.

    An amazing thing. Tens of thousands of evil terrorists surround Turkish posts in Idlib, and the Turks have no problems ... what but no, there are problems. We have to remove another "post", which turns out to be superfluous after the liberation of the territory by the Syrian army.

    Not for that they came to leave. If (theoretically) the Turks leave, then the Yankees or French will instantly appear there. Horseradish radish is not sweeter.
