SAA bypassed the position of Turkish special forces south of Sarmin, approaching Idlib


SAA fighters wiped boots with the flag of anti-government forces


The Syrian army continued its assault on militant positions, despite threatening rhetoric from Ankara. Recall that the President of Turkey has repeatedly stated that the army will strike at the "forces of the regime" if at least one Turkish soldier suffers in Syria. On the eve of Recep Erdogan announced that the start of the Turkish operation in Idlib is only a matter of time. True, he did not say a specific date.

Against this background, the Syrian government forces carried out advancement in several directions at once. The greatest success of the CAA was achieved south of Sarmin. In this settlement, located in the province of Idlib, there is one of the so-called "observation posts" of the Turkish army. Moreover, the Turks formed this post in the past few weeks - after the transfer of special forces and armored vehicles to this area.

Syrian troops advanced about 4-3 km along the M4 highway. At the same time, the advanced CAA forces are located only 200-300 m from the southern outskirts of Sarmin. Bypassing the forces of Turkish special forces from the south, Syrian troops advanced in the direction of the village of Kaminas, which is southeast of the city of Idlib. Idlib itself is about 12 km away. The advance of the ground forces was supported by the SAR Air Force, which attacked the positions of the militants in the area of ​​the mentioned Kaminas.


At the same time, several SAA assault detachments were able to occupy a section of the M4 highway west of Nairab. This section allows you to strike at militants from the rear, and can also make it possible to take Sarmin in a half ring.

The air force was hit by militant positions in the area of ​​the city of Ad-Dana, located a few kilometers from the Turkish border. The attacks were carried out at the moment when the militants tried to regroup and advance eastward - towards Arkhab and the western suburbs of Aleppo. This promotion was frustrated.

    Continue to pick the collapsed front!
    It is necessary to poke in different places.
    But at this stage, the Turks very decisively began to act.
    As if the Turks and us would not have pushed our foreheads together.

        If Erdogan cherishes the life of his military, then he just needs to give them the order to leave Syria. And nothing more.

            For example, Kurds pose such a danger. Turkish Kurds are extremely dangerous for Turkey. Especially if you organize their training and supply them with a sufficient amount of weapons.

        I agree. It is necessary to build defensive lines while there is time. Does the Syrian army have large mines? Mining tank hazardous directions and burrowing into the ground. If it is clear over the Idlib sky or at least parity ??? ATS will have a good chance.

              it’s good to throw hats already. since everything is so wonderful, well, they didn’t release the whole territory of Syria, that they wouldn’t turn up in Zaevfratie? but because amerikosy can answer quite a bit and nothing can be done about it, there are no levers on them.
              Well, yes, with the Turks, you can wrestle, they also have enough problems, there are levers, how to unravel the tangle of contradictions, it also depends on diplomacy.

            Do not trample. This is fraught with the death of thousands of Turkish soldiers, which will undermine the not very strong position of Erdogan in Turkey. Plus, the Turkish army is weakened by repression against the military after an unsuccessful coup attempt.

    It is indicative in the article "Air Force strikes."
    It is the Syrian Air Force that operates.
    If they neutralize a certain number of any interventionists, this is for the better.
    And Russian and Turkish patrols continue observational actions in order to maintain order.

        I judge by the information in the article.
        Yes, and the most logical act of the Syrian Air Force in order to prevent provocative accusations.
        A VKS can operate in terms of electronic warfare, air defense and high-altitude interception of all identified and unidentified flying.
        And the defense against the loss of the Syrian air force may be bombing from altitudes of more than 4000 meters beyond the reach of man-portable air defense systems.

          But do they have sighting equipment for bombing from such a height? And anyway, what do they have from aviation left? As can be understood from fragmentary information, there are a lot of planes in the joke for malfunctions.

    Against this background, the Americans changed their tone and have already expressed their support for Turkey, which is an ally and partner in NATO and blah blah.
    The Turks went against the interests of the United States negotiating with us, but here the opposite situation, they could not agree with us, coordinated actions and secured support in Washington. Americans calmly bomb ANY objects in Syria besides our bases, that is, they can support the Turks from the air, moreover, they will kill several birds with one stone and Assad’s legs will be in the air, we will have silk on our nose and Iran’s arms shortened, and most importantly there’s a candidate for the role of cannon fodder and ground operations.

    Ankara sent to Syria up to 2225 vehicles loaded with ammunition and ammunition and more than 600 pieces of armored vehicles, tanks, armored personnel carriers, self-propelled artillery receiver systems, MLRS and missile systems. About 7000 Turkish soldiers have already been transferred to Syrian territory, and this is already pulling in a compartment with artillery, armored vehicles and reconnaissance to an enhanced motorized division. In addition, the front-line and army aircraft of the Turkish Air Force are involved in the current military operation. The Turkish General Staff has not used this level of force and means since the time of the Cyprus War.

      Jews are silent, but bite strongly. Turks bark loudly, but everything barks and leaves. the sultan is also afraid, most likely these rattles with weapons to prevent a further offensive by the Syrian army. and the rhetoric is also different, they threaten war and patrol the border on the same day.
      Turkish Foreign Minister: - “It cannot be said that the agreements in Sochi and Astana have terminated, but they have suffered. It is difficult to continue the Sochi and Astana agreements while the government continues its attacks. We will intensify our discussions with the Russians regarding the situation in Idlib.”
      there was information that the Turks recently tried to separate the terrorists, send the Nusrovites from Idlib to Afrin so that later in the negotiations we would say well, we fulfill our obligations, but the Nusrovians sent the Turks. so the sultan is no longer needed for explicit terrorists. I think by mutual agreements with the Russians there they will be disposed of.

        there is a small problem, all the "moderate" a year ago, killed the finished women (nusravets). there were skirmishes between factions which ended in a complete victory for the radicals. it’s understandable; they brought in scumbags from all over Syria. Now the Turks cannot separate the moderate and immoderate simply by the fact that there is no one there except immoderate. wink

    The terrorist organizations in Idlib are Turks ’PMCs and everyone knows it, but Turkey gives a splurge to everyone that it can’t agree with them, and when they were pinched, it was the Turks who openly started holding them, giving them armored vehicles, holding them with art, but the Turks say that this is not true, so I think we will beat the Turks hard but say that they are Syrians, or simple miners volunteers from Donetsk learned to take the regular army to the boilers, but you understood the hint

    And the question is, what army group in Idlib is the Syrian concentration now, its number, armored vehicles, etc. I think about two or three times more than the Turks have thrown + the Turks will have to attack, and I think the Syrians have enough birds, and that the Turks have a lot of experience in taking cities? I think the Syrians have more experience and motivation, so the Turks will advance, but the picture will be like an LDR, they will burn tanks, mow down infantry, the sky is closed so what kind of fast operation Erdogan doesn’t work out, losses will go and then the rhetoric will change and there will be a new agreement

    Before the start of their operation in Idlib (if they don’t agree with us), the Turks will try to get the maximum international support.
    they have already taken it to the UN, UN functionaries noted a humanitarian crisis in idlib - a million refugees who have nowhere to run because there are no more safe places in idlib. with such a number of refugees it is impossible to provide them with tents, food, etc., so the mass facts of people dying from hypothermia have already gone.
    the culprits of all this disgrace are called the Assad regime and Russia.
    in the UN Security Council, France proposed to establish a ceasefire in idlib, we, of course, are against.
    an information background is being created for the power support of the Turkish operation. so the probability of coordinated air and missile attacks by NATO allies, I think, is high.
    for all our bravado, we will not dare to shoot down NATO aircraft.
    if the NATO withdraw the Syrian air force and air defense from the game, we will have to close all the holes ourselves, or look at it from the side.
    not the fact that the Turks will be limited to one idlib, it is very geographically convenient for them to direct their efforts to Latakia. But there was no war there, if something begins, the masses of the Alawite population will start to flee and the safest place there will be our bases, hardly adapted to receive refugees.

    Whatever it was - Turkey is still a danger to Russia and Syria. There is no need for hatred and "dizziness from success"

    The Turkish Armed Forces are still not a Muslim rabble, but a regular European Army.

    And in order to provoke Turkey into a bloody conflict with Russia, the Islamists just need to carry out a massive mortar shelling of the very Turkish checkpoint in Seraks. Turks will be only happy.
    So far, only Erdogan is in a difficult position of choice. And there will be those who died at the checkpoint - he will choose a war non-alternatively. And Putin will be in a difficult choice - to connect the videoconferencing or not.

      According to the logic, it is unprofitable for the Turks to go all-in, there are too many losses in various fields. But, as the Greeks say, they have long been characterized by greed (in peacetime) and anger (in war). It easily blows down and they act recklessly, contrary to logic. This does not add mastery to the war, but poses a danger to the other side, like a wounded boar in a field against a hunter.
