Erdogan threatens Damascus with an immediate military response


Turkey demanded an immediate cessation of the offensive by the Syrian government forces in the Idlib de-escalation zone and the withdrawal of SAA units from Turkish observation posts. This was stated by Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, speaking in Istanbul.


The Turkish leader once again threatened to respond with a blow to the Syrian army if it did not immediately leave the territories liberated during the offensive and did not return to the positions it held in 2018 when the Sochi agreement was signed. At the same time, he emphasized that he would not wait for the end of the month, as promised earlier, but would strike immediately.

Until the regime’s forces go beyond the borders (de-escalation zones in Idlib) defined in the Sochi agreement, the problem will not be solved. If they do not leave, then we will do this work without waiting for the end of February

- he said.

Recall that in Syria, according to the agreements of Russia, Iran and Turkey, four de-escalation zones have been created, three of which are controlled by Damascus. The fourth zone, which includes the province of Idlib and part of the provinces of Latakia, Hama and Aleppo, is controlled by militants. Earlier, Ankara promised to put things in order in this de-escalation zone by placing its observation posts there, but failed to achieve anything, the militants continued shelling of peaceful territories.

Currently, several Turkish observation posts are located on the territory recaptured by militants by government forces, thereby losing their original meaning. Despite this, the Turks are not going to retreat to their border, but, on the contrary, demand from Damascus that he withdraw his forces from the liberated territories.

As some media previously reported, Erdogan had great views of the province of Idlib, where he wanted to create a quasi-state, completely under the control of Ankara.

    Erdogan had great views of Idlib province, where he wanted to create some kind of quasi-state, completely under the control of Ankara.


    Nothing will come of it. Turkey at this historical stage is not a country that can create states. Even quasi.

      Do not underestimate Turkey. It is clear that Erdogan has gone too far. But so far it is not visible that someone was trying to stop him.
      From the thought of his own greatness and impunity, Erdogan can do various things that will come across all the countries of the region.

          Well, actually it’s very interesting. The Turkish troops began to enter as early as a week, I was expecting a sharp escalation already, but they are still making statements, moreover, on the internal platforms .... Is it really "blown away"? But in fact, yes.
          Their military capabilities there are very wide.

        An attack on Damascus could be the beginning of the end for Turkey. NATO will not send soldiers to fight for its interests.

          NATO with great pleasure frolic in Syria .. And the French, and the British, and even the hell knows who .. Turkey is a NATO member .. UN about the actual occupation of Syria by Turkish troops is silent in a rag .. Not a single moan about the death of civilians from volleys of Turkish MLRS .. White helmets turned green and disappeared into the mass ... The French drove their aircraft carrier to Syria, too, just like that, right? NATO is just waiting for Russia to grapple with Turkey seriously .. (God forbid). - and right there they will start to beat on Assad’s troops ..

            Well, NATO is different. In 1974, two NATO countries fought in Cyprus - Greeks and Turks. The Turks depressed Northern Cyprus (an absolutely depressed region that is not recognized in the world by anyone other than the Turks themselves). And NATO stood quietly on the sidelines. So options are possible.

            NATO, first of all, is the United States and only then, countries controlled by it that are not eager ... The treaty itself is just a formality with the legitimization of the transfer of its sovereignty to the Americans.
            For me, this is how European countries argue like this: it’s risky to climb ahead of the USA, otherwise the Americans can simply set you up, and they can sit aside. So it turns out that if the war starts, then only with a full-scale attack by the United States, which is just used to "show its power" to the small ...

          and on what basis will Nato send his troops, as far as I know, a collective agreement comes into force only when attacking a NATO member on its territory. That is, with the invasion of the same territory of Turkey. But in fact, Turkey climbed into Syria and Syria has all legal aspects to expel any occupier

    Being in a foreign sovereign country without an invitation requires. Does it take too much on itself? With its threats against Assad and the Syrian army, it began to resemble Ukrainian "strategists" threatening to reach Moscow. NATO was modestly silent about providing assistance to the Turks, although the Americans promised help with intelligence and weapons, but only promised. Obviously, you will have to come to terms in the end.

        Theoretically, on paper, she surpasses the CAA army, like an elephant to a turtle. But in practice, the picture looks different. The idea of ​​strengthening expeditionary forces with armored vehicles is mechanistic, but not very good. Given the profile of the terrain, mainly mountainous, which greatly reduces the advantages of armor and increases the capabilities of light infantry with anti-tank systems. hi

        It’s just that someone with his frenzied Cheers imagined the allied relations between Turkey and the Russian Federation, they weren’t there when. Turkey is a NATO member and opposes the Russian Federation, and the construction of the pipeline and the sale of the S-400 will not change this.

          Actually quite capable of changing. The development of economic relations brings together and makes war noticeably less likely, but one must understand that there are also reasons for a conflict of interest - in Syria, almost a direct conflict of interests occurs. And in general, it will be very difficult to collide with Erdogan’s ambitions (and if this is not his personal ambition, remove Erdogan - his double brother will appear)

        To be honest, I think so too. The United States wanted to replace Erdogan, because he did not go against the Russian Federation, did not subscribe to something. And here they publicly leave him alone on the battlefield, and wait until the TR and the Russian Federation completely disagree irrevocably, wait and push both sides, the Russian Federation with the TR for a direct clash. Then they will immediately remember "the collective security of NATO." And believe me, if this happens, and even if Erdogan begs the United States that they would not get involved in this, we’ll sort it out ourselves. Believe me, Erdogan will be the last one the United States "just listen to." NATO does not have the image that would be so, just aside to watch and observe, let Turkey (NATO ally), Erdogan himself figure it out. The United States asserts all its allies about the importance of NATO, and protection against aggression of the Russian Federation, and more and more they want influence in the world, and allies in NATO. And then leave, and what others will think. They will hit in Syria and they will respond in Syria.

        Direct participation is unlikely. Assad should talk with Iran on the topic of full-scale military assistance, along with the Jews will be pleased.
        Iran, the stump is clear, will not get into a freebie and will have to be interested in it somehow and Russia can help it in this, with a dozen nuclear warheads, for example, or the creation of Iranian military bases on Syrian soil.

    Will Russia help Assad resist the Turkish army?

    Have to help Assad.
    If the Turks defeat the Syrian army, Russia's very participation in this war will be worthless.
    Baboons perked up and again climb out of all the cracks, spit on the ceasefire they signed. And in Idlib and in Hama and in Deraa ...
    All our and Syrian losses over the years - will depreciate.
    The front in the north will fall apart, a threat will be created to the Russian bases of Khmeimim and Tartus.
    Evacuation required. Shameful evacuation through the triumphant Bosphorus ...
    Do we need a ending?
    Is it worth the gas in the pipe, our construction loans ours nuclear plant and the sale of the latest Russian missile defense to the Ottomans?
    In my opinion - not worth it.
    Once you lose face, it will be very difficult to restore a reputation. Especially in the East.

      It must be made clear to the Sultan that this is extremely unprofitable for him. But if you lock, you have to intervene.

    The Russian Federation and Turkey have fundamentally different positions on the Syrian issue, the latter looks at Syrian territory like a cat on sour cream, while Russia seeks to unite Syria while maintaining geopolitical influence in the eastern Mediterranean, so Turkish forces from Idlib will not stop shelling the positions of the Syrian army and will not abandon attempts to attack our air base in Latakia, it is like a bone across the throat to the Turks.

      The last regularly from the territory of Syria, especially after the attacks of the SAA, crowds of Syrian refugees come - there is nowhere to place them, there is an account for millions. Here Erdogan needs a buffer zone near the border. This is much more important and understandable than the abstract "geopolitical influence in the eastern Mediterranean" - where did you catch these words wassat

    In fact, we do not have as many options as we can influence Ankara. Erdogan may well strike the Syrian army, including from the air. Our planes will not shoot down him, if the Syrians bring down, they will blame us. Israeli and American planes that bombard the SAA, we do not shoot down and do not interfere with them. The Turkish stream has already been built and has already been paid for the contracts, ours will not be blocked, too much money has been invested, a lot of agreements with other countries. A nuclear power plant is also under construction, its commissioning is planned only in 2023. S-400 systems are already on credit. We can stop supporting the Turks in the issue of Kurds, but the Kurds under the hood of the Americans, they are not our allies. We can throw weapons to the Syrians and Kurds, but this will not stop the offensive in Idlib. We can support Haftar, but this also will not save Idlib, only create difficulties for the Turk in the future. You can introduce sanctions, this will create problems in the Turkish economy, but even the sanctions of the Americans and the collapse of the lira did not stop Erdogan. The Syrians, too, will not leave so simply, for them it is a betrayal. Most likely, everything will be decided this month, or we will negotiate for Erdogan special conditions for which he will abandon Idlib, or he will knock the Syrians out of Idlib, even with losses. He had already knocked out Kurds from the north, and even the Americans could not stop him, and disgraced the troops. I do not believe that ours will begin to bomb the Turks on all fronts. Here is such an analytics.

      That's for sure. I even think that Turkey is a more valuable partner for Russia than Syria. Many joint profitable projects, plus friendship with Turkey - automatically destroys NATO slowly. Well, plus the end of the war in Syria, the Russian Federation is not necessary. This is an excellent landfill for the disposal of militants, terrorists, radicals and other elements. Plus testing and testing of weapons and equipment, plus training for personnel. The news is not particularly ringing, but more than 300 specimens have already been tested. So there is no particularly powerful support for CAA. On the 17th, enhanced bidding was announced in Moscow, and in fact the division of Syria. It seems to me that Idlib will be left for Erdogan so far, he certainly will not give him up without a fight. And in the future, he should get 30-40-50 km along the border of the security zone for a while. But let's see. It’s very unfortunate that the Syrians die in battles with a more equipped enemy even in conditions when the Turks cover the militants.

      Someone will start shouting: it was not necessary to supply the S-400, it was not necessary to build the South Stream, but firstly: first, who then knew that the Sultan would make the goat’s face?
      Secondly, he moved far away, for a long time or not the question is different, then the USA, and this is already +

        Alleged offensive. This is what Erdogan is facing, which will drive the Syrians to the borders of Sochi Idlib. I tried to outline the situation in advance when the Turks began to realize their threats. If they do not decide, then God forbid. But Erdogan’s reputation says that he can take such a step.

Did Sultan Erdogan miscalculate everything, threatening the EU with refugees, the United States with 400, and the indirlik. Has the Sultan cornered himself? Is it time to remember all our losses and deliver a decisive blow. To bomb the militants together with the Turkoman. And how the army of the SAA was pumped, the Turks will burn well without air support. Good old 72s will also give panthers a light

        I do not think that the S-300 and S-400 are easier to manufacture than the RD-180.

          They can do it, they have a full set of design documentation for the RD-180. Just do it yourself is more expensive than buying from us. It is more efficient to develop a new engine, the BE-4 for replacement is already ready for delivery to ULA, it all depends on how quickly they make their Vulcan launch vehicle under it.

                  There, in the original report, for example, there are doubts that in the future Falcon Heavy will receive military certification, only now he received it more than a year ago. After which the whole report goes into the furnace, since the Pentagon already has full coverage of all its current and promising loads

          Americans know how it works and how to make an RD-180. It’s just cheaper for them to buy from the Russian Federation than to make at home. For the entire expense of the finished "RD-180" in the United States, they probably buy 2-3 from the Russian Federation. That's why they buy from the Russian Federation.

            Incorrect is precisely for this reason that the USA declared the impossibility of replacing the Russian RD-180 for another 10 years.

    The Turks failed to achieve anything from the militants, because they did not want to! This is the same old song, the theft of oil from Syria by the hands of armed Turkish gangs. The Turkish roadblocks need to be tightly blocked so that after some time the Turks themselves leave them and withdraw them without arms to Turkey. Also, you must immediately connect those Kurds who live in the area to the war against the Turks. Put them before a choice, or help clean up the land from gangs and military Turks, which is the same at the moment, or go through the forest with autonomy within Syria. Also, "promise" to the sultashka, if he does not cease to argue that Kurdistan, in Turkey, is a matter of time, the very near future. Only such a turn of events will force him to tighten his tail, and changing his rhetoric, leave his gangs from Syria.

    It’s not long to wait, I don’t think that Erdogan will pull. All threats emanating from the Turks are executed. They don’t really need a stream. C400 I think too. For the war with the Russian Federation they will be quickly forgiven and understood. In GDP, the time of multi-step ends.

    The Ottoman dog broke.
    Most likely the Turks will inflict any blow.
    However, large-scale actions will not go.
    There is no good reason for the Turks to count on quick success without heavy losses.
    Such a conflict will weaken Turkey and may lead to the displacement of the Sultan.

    the Turkish army will remove the identification marks and, under the guise of a militant, will strike at its vehicles, and when their soldier is killed they will start screaming that they are so white and fluffy that they didn’t touch anyone but attacked them.

    Turkey will not pay compensation for the downed Su-24 Russian Air Force aircraft. This was reported by Reuters referring to Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım.

    "The payment of compensation to Russia is not discussed. We only expressed our regret," he said.

    There are very few objective comments. Doesn’t it seem to anyone that Erdogad has outplayed GDP? He has much more options than Russia. Bargained for buns, and dumps. VKS does not fit against Turkey. No, no way. We already have no temporary allies in the BV. And the paths diverge with Iran, and Syria, in which case with Assad, immediately turns away. And without the Turks and the IRGC, it’s not enough for us to shine. What is fifty aircraft and two air defense divisions. So much is swollen in Syria, but everything can break loose overnight. Let’s leave as we left Egypt or Somalia.

        Let's get away from Assad

        Something tells me that Assad has a minority in the country. He will not be there, Shiites will come to power, and we will become on bird’s rights. Tartus and Hmeimim rent agreement will be torn, Iranians will be officially called. And yes, do not forget that the supply of the aerospace forces comes through Turkey. You can’t train much Ruslans. Under any pretext, the Bosphorus will be closed for Russia and all. And all these international laws are silent. The Americans will rise again, and the Turks will not refuse free oil. They already have refugees, according to the press of 6-7 million, it is vital for them to create a security corridor, the thicker the better.
        PS: With Egypt it was the same, “asked” and left. And it was the USSR, incomparably more powerful, which could restrain Israel. And which were friends in the BV. So the situation is far from interesting.
