Less than 20 km from CAA to key checkpoint on Turkish border


The Syrian army over the past day pushed the front from the country's largest city (Aleppo) for another 5-6 km. Under the control of the Syrian troops passed a whole group of settlements to the west and north of Aleppo: Zuk al-Kabir, Kirbat al-Atra, Anadan, Zahra.


According to recent reports, in two weeks the Syrian army was able to increase control territories in the provinces of Idlib and Aleppo by about a quarter.

Having stopped moving “in a straight line” to the administrative center of Idlib province, the Syrian government army continues to advance south-east of the city, as well as west of the M5 highway.

Less than 20 km remain on the Dzhutar-Al-Baitarun route from CAA to the Turkish border in the Chilvegözu region. The Chilvegözu border checkpoint is the key checkpoint through which Ankara has been deploying forces and assets to the Syrian Arab Republic for the most recent time.


If the Syrian troops reach the border with Turkey in this direction and take the checkpoint on the Syrian side under full control, it will be possible to continue the attack on Sarmin and Idlib.


In addition, the Syrian army has a chance to develop an offensive in the north of the country and come close to Aazaz, which today is actually controlled by Turkish troops. But between the current positions of the SAA and Aazaz there are also Kurdish armed groups. In this regard, the question arises as to what the Kurdish formations will do. If the Kurds have a “desire” to fight on two fronts at once, then for them it is unlikely to end in success.

    That is, the border can already be "controlled" by artillery ...

        Something seems to me that the Kurds have already "worked, the right people" and they will show prudence. Very quickly, those territories receded under the control of the CAA

          Sergey, and good day to you hi , only the Kurds there are different, some still adore the United States! Such tribes are dangerous for the Assad army, although they are also dangerous for the Turks. The reason is simple - Kurdistan! All Kurds want to create their own veil-morgan on the lands where they now live!

              Kurds are the autochthonous people of the Middle East, whose territories fell under Arab, Persian, and Turkish occupation. They laid their own state.

              The question is, how will this state exist? In fact, it will be an isolated enclave, sandwiched within the borders of three states - Iraq, Turkey and Syria, not having its own access to the sea. Not a single caravan of Kurdish oil can leave the territory of this Kurdish state. Even if oil is transported by air, it will have to be done through the airspace of neighboring states. This sir will not be a state, this is a reservation. The ideal option for them is autonomy, but as long as they get out and “make friends” with the mattresses, they will miss this option as well.

                If there is oil, there will be patronage of the Americans. With their patronage, and the interest of petroleum promises, there will be a very well-guarded pipeline and money for transit to neighboring states and a Merikats share for the roof, etc. etc. But. To do this, the Kurds must sort themselves out, organize themselves, and decide by joint efforts to build states, forgetting about clan interests. At the moment, they are very diverse motto audience.

                  This is debatable. The Kurds' confidence in the patronage of the United States was greatly crushed by the mattresses after having left the Turkish troops after dropping the Turkish troops and leaving their checkpoints in Iraq, and then decided to return, leaving behind only the "protection" of the oil fields. Now their friendship rests on the money with which the mattresses bribed local leaders. In the long run, the US presence in Iraq is also a big question. At least, after the assassination of Suleimani and the recent shelling of American bases in Iraq, as well as the decision of the Iraqi parliament to withdraw the mattress contingent, the Americans did not particularly advertise the withdrawal of their contingent from 15 bases, deciding to maintain their presence in two (one of which was shelling). This process takes place against the backdrop of the fact that so far no one has tried to nightmare mattresses in full, limited to only demonstration attacks. And the pipe itself, the “Kurdish” oil pipeline laid in any direction from the fields, will not be able to bypass the territory of one of the border countries that do not share the idea of ​​creating an independent Kurdistan, which makes its protection extremely problematic. hi

                    It all depends on three factors:
                    1) location and volume of hydrocarbon reserves of the Kurdish state
                    2) the political decision of the mericatos
                    3) Kurdish Resolutions
                    Each of the factors described above has many sub-items, such as who lobbies for support in the United States, whom the Kurds immediately take into account, how they solve internal disagreements, who will be included in the share in neighboring states (if Makhlufov is in Syria - everything will be clear - oligarchs are relatives Assad’s mother), etc. Iran itself understands that the pushing of Americans out of Iraq will take place in Ur only before the US elections, then they, defeating Trump, will not be left alone. There is also that viper - but if the Kurds calculate everything correctly, they will create their own completely viable country.

                    Is it not easier for the Kurds to focus on gaining autonomy and secure their right to a share of the oil field? In fact, autonomy is no longer a bad result of armed resistance, compared with the fact that yesterday they had no status at all, because this already allows us to solve the problems of identity, self-government, language, education, faith and culture. Autonomy is the first step towards gaining statehood. Iraqi and Syrian Kurds, in principle, one step away from their own autonomies within Iraq and Syria, would have been a desire. Turkey will never go to the loss of territories in favor of Kurdistan, and therefore, in our century, Kurdistan will certainly not take place. Ankara has territorial integrity in the state priority.
                    P / S - perhaps in modern history there is only one example when the State strives to become a bunch of autonomies, this is Ukraine. Well, it’s with anyone, and the Ukrainians will definitely succeed.

It is becoming more and more complicated with Kurds, they are different in beliefs, in their view, the territory of Kurdistan occupies a large territory, now occupied by three states

                The three-letter word on the fence is also quite readable. But this does not mean that it is true.

    So you need to wait for a direct clash of the Syrians and the Turkish army. Erdogad will not give up territory for thanks, this is both his prestige and the ability to control his lured militants. And when the Syrian army enters the border, the option of flight, or rather, the invasion of these gangs in Turkey by Vilik.

      Erdogad will not give the territory for thanks, this is its prestige,
      But is it better to give up this territory with battles (read: against the will of the Sultan and with huge losses)?
      So at least it can explain that by the kindness of the Sultan he gave. Then you can shout that the Sultan is kindness and strength.
      And if they give it back with fights, then everyone will say that the Sultan is aggressive and weak. bully

    Everything would be fine, but only on this narrow strip of tens of kilometers there are about 7 thousand Turkish fighters with hundreds of tanks, with hundreds of armored vehicles and artillery. so easy not to get around them. And I do not think that Idlib refused to take on some tactical tricks. Most likely, the Turks dug in there seriously and simply did not allow the SAA to advance. Will they move on? I doubt that the Turks will allow the SAA to fight at border crossings near their border. So I don’t have much optimism, no matter how much I would like.

              Thanks, I thought the ensign. Only it is not clear how one rank can correspond to two. Then already ml. lt is not needed at all, especially since there is no position for him, as well as for a lieutenant. In the RF Armed Forces, platoon commander - Art. lt In general, in my opinion, lieutenant is translated from German as a substitute position.
              1. This happens. For example, both Standartenfuhrer and Oberfuhrer in SS and SA equally corresponded to the colonel.
                And the ensign according to our correspondence table is the equivalent of warrent.

    1. And any evidence from independent sources about these "23 destroyed Turkish tanks" are there ?? By the way - this is not a "colossal loss." This is not even a battalion. The general grouping of forces involved in the Barış Pınarı Harekâtı is enough to sweep away both the cardboard panels and the SAA group and the ground group of the RF Armed Forces in the area of ​​operation. Whether Erdogan will do this is a question (and a big one). But TSK has quite enough forces and means for this.
