Syrian army repulsed a massive attack by pro-Turkish groups

Pro-Turkish groups launched a massive attack on government positions in Idlib province. SAR units were attacked in the area of ​​the village of Neyrab west of Sarakib. It is reported by the radio station Sham FM.


According to the report, the positions of the Syrian government army were subjected to an artillery attack, then the forces of the groups on the side of Turkey went on the attack. During fierce battles, CAA forces supported by aviation managed to maintain position by destroying several units of armored vehicles and militants.

There are fierce battles, accompanied by artillery and airstrikes on militant positions

- said in a statement.

According to recent media reports, the Syrian government army managed to maintain its position and not surrender a single settlement. At present, the attack of the militants is repelled, the opponents remained in their previous positions.

Recall that the Syrian government forces continue to attack the positions of militants in the Idlib de-escalation zone, trying to free the province from the remnants of the armed opposition, as well as militants of terrorist groups. In turn, Ankara, which has views of the province, is sharply opposed by the offensive of the Syrian Arab army, saying that "the civilian population is suffering from this." In turn, Turkey threatens a military strike against Syrian troops.

Previously, the Pentagon announced the high probability of a military conflict between Turkey and Russia in the Syrian province of Idlib.

    From the beginning, the Turks have been fighting in Syria by the forces of pro-Turkish militants. Shot down our plane. Tense relationship. Then for some reason the world. S-400 sale. And the Turks again begin to crap us. Question. I alone think that with such “friends” there is no need for enemies !? And we didn’t need such a “peace” from the very beginning, and is this a mistake of our politicians, and in particular the darkest one? I hope people when you will minus, justify wink

        Statement by the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria:


        On February 20, 2020, terrorist gangs carried out several massive attacks using a large number of armored vehicles against units of the Syrian Arab Army in the direction of Kminas-Nairab.

        The actions of the militants were supported by artillery fire of the Turkish armed forces, which allowed terrorists to break through the defenses of the Syrian army.

        To prevent the gangs from moving deeper into Syrian territory, at the request of the Syrian command of the SU-24 aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces, a blow was struck against the bursting armed formations of terrorists. This allowed the Syrian troops to successfully repel all attacks. They destroyed 1 tank, 6 infantry fighting vehicles and 5 pickups with large-caliber weapons of militants.

        Through the line of deconflicting, the Turkish side was informed that Russian means of objective control revealed the fact of artillery fire from Turkish positions on the units of the Syrian army. As a result, 4 Syrian troops were injured. After bringing this information to the Turkish side, their artillery fire was ceased.

        We draw attention to the fact that this is not the first case of support for militants from the Turkish armed forces.

        We urge the Turkish side to stop incidents to stop supporting the actions of terrorists and transferring weapons to them.

          Russian means of objective control revealed the fact of artillery fire from Turkish positions on the units of the Syrian army.

          The Turks openly launched a war against Assad. This is fraught with an open clash between the RF Armed Forces and Turkey, but what consequences will there be? Again Russia will not buy Turkish tomatoes and herbs?

            It directly follows from the news that after the RF Armed Forces were connected to repel the attack, the attack was repelled.
            The Syrians, faced with the Turkish-Shahid offensive, did not run, but fought back.
            After the Russian remark about the uselessness of the shelling, the shelling ceased.
            What else is needed to calmly meet old age? hi
            Or does someone here seriously think that Erdogan is dreaming of a string of 200s in Turkey?
            And the fact that he will not quarrel with Russia over Ildib, he did not hear only the deaf. hi

      And who is easy right now? bully
      Yankers why allies kick in the tail and mane?
      For the simple reason that surfaced in the Iraqi company:
      the American army in development has come off so much that the allies have become useless.
      Allies cannot integrate into the American battle order. They lag behind in equipment.
      Therefore, our "allies", of the same backward quality, are needed only for the deployment of bases. Kyrgyz, Tajiks, Armenians. Because nothing else can really help. Even if they want to. They are not to blame. But it happened lately.
      Therefore, the Old Man is not interesting with his songs, that he is covering something for us there.
      As for the Turks, our leadership managed to spoil the main US ally in the region.
      And he continues the line. He is not our friend. He is our spoiled ally of America. And behaves accordingly. And we continue to spoil it, because Erdogan has something to lose with us.
      That's all the relationship. hi

      Turks have never been friends with us. They have always been our enemies. I don’t know why our foreign policy is so weak that Turkey is impudent and, moreover, has spat on our face for the umpteenth time. But let's see, maybe not everything is lost and we will find a way out of this situation. It’s not always that we wipe ourselves off from spitting .. Although ...

      I won’t say anything about the heat, but our correspondents from Syria report the activation of Turkish artillery and the support of the MLRS of militants. Perhaps the beginning of the Turkish offensive. According to our data, at the moment in Idlib there are concentrated about 4 thousand Turkish troops ready for the offensive. Now on Rossiya24 channel it was reported that militants, with the support of the Turks, broke through the defenses of the Syrian army, and only the attack of the Russian Su-24s on the attackers prevented a further attack. hi

      To prevent the gangs from moving deeper into Syrian territory, at the request of the Syrian command of the SU-24 aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces, a blow was struck against the bursting terrorist armed groups. This allowed the Syrian troops to successfully repel all attacks. They destroyed 1 tank, 6 infantry fighting vehicles and 5 pickups with large-caliber weapons of militants.

      Gone. Militants and Turks storm Neurab. Allegedly already taken. Destroyed and captured a dozen units of armored vehicles and, allegedly, already on the M-4 rod to Sarakib. There is a video of Turkish special forces, M-60 columns and artillery work.
      The Syrians say they stopped the attack, destroying at least 3 tanks and the 1st BMP. Also works art and OTRK "Point" according to Sarmin.
      Of aviation, only the Su-35 and Su-24, which strike at clusters of militants and, according to some sources, Turkish artillery in Kmenas, are over the scene.
      The Russian Center for Reconciliation recognized that air strikes against the armed formations of terrorists were destroyed, 1 tank, 6 infantry fighting vehicles and 5 pickups were destroyed. The Turks were warned about the inadmissibility of supporting terrorists. The Turks have stopped. The offensive is repelled.
      It seems to me that the Sultan is trying weakly on Russia. If we do not flinch, he himself will put up. And then, at Bryansk customs, 250 trucks with Turkish tomatoes are not allowed. Probably a joke. Though...

        whoever actively puts cons there, I’ll say it’s not my fault that your aspirations did not come true, maybe they will take Nairab in half an hour, an hour, and tomorrow they can capture all of Syria and Russia in addition. but for now this is not, humble yourself. soldier

    This is already to a large extent characterizes the maturity of the CAA and the wisdom of its leadership. Than the ability to attack.
    To organize defense quickly, so as to crush the enemy’s counterattacking forces, is similar to our operations of the 45th year (taking into account, of course, a completely different scale).
    I hope that the work of our advisers + strengthening discipline in the Assad army gives such results.
    But whose was the artillery strike? Turks? Turkoman? What's the difference? But these mysterious artillerymen must be destroyed right after (or during the strike) and then they don’t complain empty - who is not hiding, we are not to blame.

    From the live news, there are not so much militants as the Turkish army began the active phase with shelling from multiple launch rocket systems. Under the cover of this fire, in addition to the army of the Turks, militants also massively went. Kneading there is serious, but so far the Syrians, with the support of aviation, are able to maintain their positions.

          Even as stated. Erdogan himself said that because of Idlib, Russia will not quarrel. bully

            Why quarrel with Russia? If there is a “whipping boy” in the form of Syria ?!

              The Syrians did not run. This is the main thing.
              SAA attack repelled? Beat off. VKS helped? Helped.
              Loss of SAA in 4 wounded - you understand it yourself is ridiculous.
              What should the Turks do now? I do not envy them. hi

                Did not run. VKS helped. And it saved the situation. What will happen next, we will take a look. Well, we don’t know the real losses. What the Syrians and Turks say is a big difference. True, somewhere in the middle.

    They write that the Turks recognized their participation in these actions and that Russian aviation bombed them there.

    The militants broke through the defense, then, at the request of the Syrians, the Su-24 with Khmeimim were connected, the breakthrough was localized. This is our Center for Reconciliation reported.

      Rudolph Turks, after the intervention of our aircraft, ceased fire from artillery, but the attacks of the militants are in waves! There they showed a video of how our Grach burned several Turkish units of military equipment.

    According to RIA Novosti, citing the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria, the Russian Su-24 destroyed one tank, six infantry fighting vehicles, as well as five pickups with large-caliber weapons of militants.

    It is noted that on February 20 gangs carried out several massive attacks on Syrian army units in the direction of Kminas - Nairab.

    "The actions of the militants were supported by artillery fire of the Turkish armed forces, which allowed terrorists to break through the defenses of the Syrian army," the report said.

    It is noted that the Syrian troops, with the support of Russian aviation, successfully repelled all attacks and destroyed militant equipment.

    It is reported that Russia calls on the Turkish side to stop incidents to stop supporting militants and transferring weapons to them.

    Already even on the radio they say that Turkey supported with a mess, and also that our VKS came to the aid of the SAA and burned a lot of armored vehicles of Turkish origin.
    The Sultan swept over again, he already asked for help from the States.
    Has it really begun?
    Erdogan thought it was prudent enough not to get involved in a full-blown conflict with Syria and Russia. ((

    The Syrian people and the army are sincerely sorry, have suffered over the years of the exhausting war, have suffered deprivation!
    But the Turks, then from a well-fed life, decided to play war games?
    But will it be “small and victorious” for them?

    All the same, we need more active independence for Texas, Alaska, Chicago, more gingerbread, fairy tales, cartoons to speak out for them to know about our concern for their freedom, blacks in general need African-American free states for their state.

    Oh guys, 75 years we will celebrate the Victory over the Nazis. That is Europe rotten, and all other evil spirits and did not learn to fight. We can’t destroy any gangs, even armed with tanks and artillery. The same fascists in a few days would iron these shortcomings with their backlash without losing a single soldier. These gangs must be continuously bombarded by changing squadrons after squadrons, rather than several aircraft.
