Turks blocked a section of the freed highway M-5 Damascus - Aleppo

Turks blocked a section of the freed highway M-5 Damascus - Aleppo

Despite the fact that the Syrian government forces managed during the counterattack for the first time since 2012 to take complete control of the important M-5 Damascus-Aleppo highway, traffic is still blocked in some sections. The blame is on Turkish observation posts.


Turkey does not intend to leave its observation posts located in the province of Idlib, including those already located in the territory controlled by government forces. Two Turkish posts located on the M-5 Damascus-Aleppo highway, which was beaten off by militants, block passage through it, passing only Russian military police equipment.

According to local media, after the liberation of the cities of Khan-Sheikhun, Maaret-En-Nuuman, Serakib, the M-5 highway, crossing Syria from north to south, became free. However, in one place, after Khan Sheikhun, transport moving along the highway has to make a detour of several kilometers, since a section of the kilometer-long road is blocked by Turkish forces. The Turks themselves explain the blocking of the route with "security measures."

These posts were put up a year ago, when this territory was controlled by militants. Despite the fact that the availability of these posts on the highway is no longer necessary, the Turks are not going to remove them, while threatening to retaliate in the event of an attack by government forces. It is no secret that these points of the Turkish army are protection for the militants of the pro-Turkish groups who have taken refuge there, who, being protected, deliver strikes against government forces.

                    That's exactly what is Turkish. And most of the data on the losses of the Turks and Syrians also comes from Turkey. Moscow’s reaction is more than restrained. As if everything is under control. The reaction of the United States is generally slurred - as if they do not understand what is happening. Assad continues to advance, despite the fact that it loses shelling of "hundreds" of fighters, although earlier the loss of a couple of dozen fighters led to almost a breakthrough of the front line. And after the start of the Syrian offensive, the Turks continued to take the militants to Libya, threatening Assad with terrible punishments and setting ultimatums.

                        Yeah, those who intend to go on holiday to Turkey at such a time risk getting to their homeland in a roundabout way through third countries, walking through the mountains, in rags and with memories of how cruelly they raped them.

            There is a loss of time. But there is no loss of supply. Here it is necessary to act differently. To begin with, invite the Turks to get out (politely, without mats). those, of course, will proudly refuse. Then outline their perspective. Namely - to completely block their block post from land and from the air. Do not allow either military or civilian vehicles from Turkey and from militants. In general, do not miss anyone. If there are any communications - electricity, water - cut everything off. Under the threat of the immediate opening of fire, prohibit exiting within a radius of more than 0,5 km. To warn that they are on the fly and in case of firing from the side of the post unit, an artillery strike will be dealt to them. After a week to ask again - have they changed their minds about moving home? And everything is extremely polite and diplomatic. And in that case, so that the Turks would not be very greyhound, seek the support of Russia in this matter. for example, to establish our posts around the perimeter of their post. Under the same stupid and far-fetched pretext as the Turks - to study the situation and monitor, block the passage of terrorists.

        Turkish troops occupied all military bases in the Idlib zone. Namely, now the SAA has taken the base of the 45th regiment in Uram al-Sugreh with the Turks inside it (!)
        Turks contribute to the squeezing of "barmaley" from specially fortified areas with the subsequent entry of the Syrian army there.

      There is an aggravation. The essence of what is happening is that under the civilians who are being bombed, Erdogan means the Turkish military, introduced into the ranks of terrorists, to keep Idlib under Turkish rule. When the SAA operation began, they began to be killed.
      Turkey is trying by any means to tear away at least part of the territory of Syria, in particular, the same Idlib province in which terrorists have entrenched themselves. Formally, Ankara promised to maintain a ceasefire in Idlib, but nothing like this happens - militants use Idlib as a base for constant attacks on Syrian government forces and the Russian air base Khmeimim.

      As a result, the Syrian army went on the offensive and began stripping Idlib. Turkish soldiers, introduced into the ranks of terrorists, began to die. Ankara responded by introducing a large military contingent with armored vehicles into Idlib.

      Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Russia and Syria of attacks on civilians in Idlib, but, of course, did not provide any evidence.

          He cannot not sing it. Thanks to this song, he came to power. More precisely, they came.
          The song was put on by geldings through Gulen (he was simply tied to the CIA), they also blocked the way for the Turks to the EU from the Turks. The Turks were terribly offended, and then a song about Ottoman greatness turned up very on time. The song was put on by geldings (knowing that deep down in every Turk she’s napping), they slipped them a soloist (he don’t know anything that Atatürk notes, he will sing without thinking about the consequences. He sings in delight to the people offended by the EU ... and to the joy of the geldings.

        By the way, nothing is heard about the confrontation of the Turks by the proud mountain people of the Kurds. And how they cried out that they would meet the Turk with a bayonet and a bullet, how they would begin to create partisan detachments and arrange sabotage. How they will kill a Turkish soldier around every corner. Aw, where are you, brave Kurds? It seems that the Turks, as they entered Afrin, so the Kurds fell off such Lyuli that they forgot about their threats, got into a gap and are afraid to show their nose.

          Erdogan is becoming more and more boring every day. They will not bring his actions to good.

          I hope that peace will come in Syria. Civilians are sorry, innocently suffering from terrorists, now from the action of the coalition, now from Israel, now from the Turks ...

          For the same post, minusanuli me, you did not touch laughing
          There are 2 "friends" on their heels walking on all branches and minus everything laughing

          I personally plus you. hi I, too, am of the opinion that drones are "dabbling" with the knowledge and possibly help of Turkey.

      Under the "legend" now does not work - the State Department your comment will result as a "proof" smile

    The Syrian army took full control of the M-5 highway and is leading an offensive west of Aleppo

    According to local media, after the liberation of the cities of Khan-Sheikhun, Maaret-En-Nuuman, Serakib, the M-5 highway, crossing Syria from north to south, became free. However, in one place, after Khan Sheikhun, vehicles moving along the highway have to make a detour of several kilometers
    This hour I watched a couple of videos on the network about Turkish posts and how food was brought to them accompanied by our military police. I was struck by the almost perfect condition of the track itself, and this after so many years of war and armored vehicles rolling back and forth.

    Well, let them sit at their roadblocks))) in short, our skaters mean there is no aggravation, every day the military militias of Turkey and Russia hold joint meetings, so there is something to talk about

    The Turks insolently violate the Idlib agreement and it is understandable why they do this - they are on the side of the bandits who are helped in every possible way, including by blocking the route for the Syrian troops. While this is not critical for CAA operations, they are not closely involved. In the future, they will simply be squeezed out from there in one way or another, including under pressure from Moscow, as well as an elementary siege, up to the military operations against them by the SAA. A lot of strength is not required for this. Slowly in the Idlib gadyushnik the role of Turkey will be reduced, practically, to zero. And Erdogan’s reluctance to leave Syria will lead to his “resignation”, so his American “friends” will try to find him a person more convenient for them (there are enough candidates)

    Yes, it seems that Assad "play in the dark" for his own good.

    Everything can be, but his role in all of this is the same, he did not go to the conditions of the Kurds, although he was "very asked" to treat them with understanding

    and the most popular version on VO was that it was a “contract”.

    You know, the Turkish press is often quoted on foreign media now, as you read it, there’s a complete feeling that “the war with Turkey is not like tomorrow, but today after lunch,” they have so much anger against Putin and the Russians


    When reading INOSmi, it is necessary to take into account that the site belongs to RIA Novosti and it is he who decides what to publish and what not. He stopped taking it seriously when he noticed the manipulation of the news to create a certain opinion after the Sushka was shot down by the Turks, first in one direction, then in the other. although there are interesting articles on history and weapons .. Erdogan is not all Turks support far, do not forget how he was nearly thrown off recently ..

    And to hell with them, they themselves soon get tired of garbage. Are they going round? They are going around, the Turks will sit and see what block is useless, and they will go to hell. At the same time, they should cut off the food supply to quickly realize the futility of their presence.
