Assessment of the situation in Syrian Idlib from Turkish media


The fighting in Idlib has long been one of the main topics in the Turkish media. The Turkish press very negatively assesses the role of Russia and the help of our country Damascus.


Yeni Akit February 20, 2020 reports on the deaths of civilians as a result of "another raid of Russian military aircraft and the Syrian aviation on Idlib. "According to a Turkish source, Russian aircraft attacked the city of Termanin near Idlib. In other publications, Bashar al-Assad’s publications are called a murderer, constantly emphasizing that the Syrian government is responsible for the deaths of civilians in Idlib province.

Another Turkish publication, Anadolu, writes that Bashar al-Assad’s troops continue to attack the city of Daret-Izze in the western province of Aleppo, also located in the Idlib de-escalation zone. Russian aviation, according to Anadolu, also strikes at Daret-Izze. All this testifies, according to Turkish journalists, about Assad’s desire to turn this settlement into another “ghost town”. Civilians join the ranks of refugees, their homes are destroyed during airstrikes. The publication cites the opinion of the Syrians themselves, who allegedly accuse Assad, Putin and the Gulf countries of everything that is happening.

The main emphasis in the publications of Turkish publications is on the humanitarian catastrophe in northern Syria, which allegedly followed as a result of the actions of the Syrian government forces and the Russian aviation supporting them. So, Anadolu quotes Turkish Minister of Defense Hulusi Akar:

Bombed schools, hospitals, residential areas. No matter how they deny, the fact of crimes is obvious. There are photos and video evidence.

From the White Helmets? ..

Sabah writes about the many refugees who now every day arrive at the border with Turkey. In a day their number increases by about 10 thousand people. In the camps, according to the publication, there are up to 700 thousand refugees from Idlib. Al-Atarib, in which more than 60 thousand people lived, as a result of the war turned into a “ghost town”, and the surviving civilians became refugees, Sabah writes.

At the same time, the Turkish press prefers not to mention once again who the Syrian troops are fighting with in Idlib. Obviously, the main task is to set up public opinion against Damascus and partly Moscow, making them the main culprits of the deaths, injuries, suffering and wanderings of the unfortunate Syrians.


Naturally, which of all this information can an ordinary Turkish citizen conclude? Such that if chaos is happening in the north of Syria, a real humanitarian catastrophe sets in, it is better for these territories to be under the control of the Turkish armed forces. But where there is a Turkish military presence, there is both political and economic influence of Turkey. And the neo-Ottoman project of Erdogan, thus, receives a certain legitimation, at least in that part, with regard to plans to control the northern Syrian territories.

TRT broadcasted an interview with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, who again came down with accusations against Bashar al-Assad and emphasized that it was Damascus that was responsible for the fact that the militants concentrated in the Idlib region.

However, despite constant accusations against Russian aviation, which, according to Turkish media reports, takes part in delivering attacks on settlements in Idlib, almost all publications see a common line: Turkey is not inclined to conflict with Russia and hopes that Moscow will change its policy on the situation in Idlib. In fact, the media are repeating the course of Turkish President Recep Erdogan, who has repeatedly said that he does not want to quarrel with Russia over Idlib.

    Turkey is not inclined to conflict with Russia and hopes that Moscow will change its policy on the situation in Idlib ...

    How many times have they said that any concessions are perceived by “friends” as weakness.

    Erdogad said a lot of things, and promised even more. His words are water! Empty promises flowed away, lies and threats remained - a typical "ration" of a hypocrite and a liar.

    If they don’t want a conflict, there’s no problem, let them be swept out of someone else’s territory and nobody will touch them with their finger. And then the situation is absurd - it’s all the same as if in the 41st Aloisevich was indignant at the barbaric attacks of the Soviet troops on German peacefully entering the USSR .. There are still some limits to every hutspe.

      I have not encountered data on the activity of Turkish aviation, and ours are working with the Syrians.
      Based on these data, we can say that the sky is under control.

    The main emphasis in the publications of Turkish publications is on the humanitarian catastrophe in northern Syria
    Maybe the Turks don’t cry but come and see life and order in the restored Syrian cities and, moreover, strategically, for them it’s better to have a stable state in their neighbors and not a “war country,” but to whom it seems, many forces in Turkey were interested in the predatory war in Syria, it’s the same when a neighbor has a fire in your house and you have time to steal carpets and valuables and make fires in corners laughing .

    They can support.
    But for a long time there will not be enough freaks.
    On their own, the Turks will not go on the attack.
    They will beat out the greens and the Turks will dry up.
    Is that a small town dug in.

    From Boris Rozhin: - "The militants in Idlib stated that they began to attack Nairab together with the Turkish army.
    They claim that the village is partially occupied, along with 3 tanks, 1 infantry fighting vehicle and 2 Russian UAVs.
    The Syrians say the village is being held, and the Turks lost 3 tanks and 1 BMP.
    Turks used MLRS to support the attack, and M-60 tanks supported the attack on SNA fighters.
    The Russian aerospace forces continue to bombard militant positions, including in the immediate vicinity of Turkish troops. Syrians say Russia doesn’t allow Turkish planes into Syrian airspace. "

    The Turkish press very negatively assesses the role of Russia and the help of our country Damascus.

    By the way, it is worth considering those who plan to go on vacation to Turkey in the coming season. Indeed, there are already losses among the Turkish military. So someone’s family got the zinc. The people are hot. They can arrange revenge.

    There is a way out. Difficult, but quite feasible. Erdogan temporarily (2 months) moves Turkoman and moderate opposition to Turkey. There are no more than 500 thousand of them left. Assad cleans the territory of irreconcilable militants. After that, ALL refugees come back. The issue has been resolved. Everyone is happy (except for the CIA and barmaley).

    The question is, what is our interest in this confrontation? I don’t think that we should fight for the Syrian land, and the Turks just want to chop off a piece. In my opinion, this is the business of Erdogan and Assad. Unless, of course, Putin promised to fit into Syria until complete control within the former borders. Because behind the scenes, he fulfills his obligations. That is why everyone wants to come to an agreement with him. And so, by and large, Russia does not care whose Idlib will be, if only the terra would not breed there. But Turkey has problems with this item. Now, if the Turks could really control the Terras, some at a cost, others in prisons, and third to Libya, for example. So that the shellings would not go, drones would not fly to our base, equip a peaceful life. It would be much more difficult for ours to support CAA. But these are my assumptions. It is not known how things really are.
