Syrian army repulsed yet another attack by pro-Turkish militants in Idlib


In the eastern part of Idlib province, Syrian government forces stopped another attempted offensive by opposition forces supported by Turkey. The militants tried to break through the positions of the SAA in the northwest and west of the village of Nairab.


Although the attempt to break through was unsuccessful, one should expect new attacks by militants on this settlement and other territories.

This was reported by Al-Masdar News.

According to Al-Khadas TV channel, while repelling an attempted breakthrough by the SAA and the Allied National Defense Forces, pro-Turkish militants lost about 250 people.

When the jihadists tried to advance on the Nairab-Sarakib line, the Syrian army managed to disable several dozen armored vehicles.

Al-Jazeera TV channel claims that not only militants, but also Turkish military personnel were directly involved in offensive operations in some areas. We are talking about the Turkish special forces, which operated with the support of tanks.


The Turkish Ministry of Defense claimed the losses of the SAA near Nairab, which amounted to 50 soldiers. 5 tanks, 2 armored personnel carriers, 2 pickups and one self-propelled guns. True, the Turkish military did not specify who caused such damage to the Syrian army - the militants themselves or the militants in conjunction with the Turkish troops.

    Now the Turks will take turns with their militants to probe the army’s defense in order to find that thin place where it is possible to break through the defense. So, without aviation, especially without our VKS, the Syrians will not be able to stay there for long.

        If it were that simple. Zvezda reports on the many-kilometer columns of Turkish military equipment accumulated near the borders with Syria in the Idlib region. And from Russia, several IL-76s have already flown from Sozd to Syria from Mozdok and Pyatigorsk. The defeat of the Turkish Army’s OP in the Kaminas area of ​​the Russian Aerospace Forces has just been published.

          Who "posted," Debka? And how is it known that it was the Turkish Army’s OP that was struck, and namely the Russian Aerospace Forces? From the picture with explosions on the horizon, this is not obvious, at least.

            No, the same person published these pictures. Two missiles aimed yesterday at the Russian Su-24 over Idlib were undoubtedly produced by American MANPADS. The system view can be clearly seen in the video:

                If a person is skeptical, you won’t convince him of anything. You won’t believe this picture published by the same author about the urgent transfer of the SU-24 accompanied by special forces. Board TU-154 VKS in Syria, say linden ?.

      So, without aviation, especially without our VKS, the Syrians will not be able to stay there for long.

      And also without good intelligence. It is intelligence that must determine the location of the next breakthrough, the location of equipment, the location of artillery. If this is on the level, then it is possible to transfer forces in time (of which the SAA does not have many), you can quickly and deeply dig into the ground in the right place. Prepare anti-tank positions. And also deliver a preemptive strike with artillery. In this situation, even aviation may not be needed.

        the author of the article misleads people, presents the information as today's new terrorist attack, although today there was nothing but shelling and Russian airstrikes.
        In general, the level of many articles on this resource is nowhere below.

    Idlib, as I understand it, is full of Turks and their military equipment. Probably not soon CAA will go there. The case takes a nasty turn. sad
    Although political decisions play a decisive role here, not the army.

    who caused such a loss to the Syrian army are directly militants or militants in conjunction with the Turkish troops.


    Alien or on their own, but it does Turkey, everyone knows about it.

      Morally and legally, Turkey has no reason to conflict with the armed forces of the SAR, they are neither nationalist, nor religious, nor territorial extremist, just afraid of their own radicals, as in Ukraine.

    I am an ignoramus in tactics, but nevertheless, why can’t you fight an adversary with their own methods? The storage location of the BCs is known, send there a certain number of drones with explosives, and the detonating BC will do their job.
    No BC - no offensive.

      it is a response to the recent shelling of Neyrab and Sarakib, it was from Sarmin and Kaminas that the Turks beat.

      The Ottoman expert was Kutuzov. He was their ambassador. And he fought with them. There is such an episode. Napoleon tried to persuade the Ottomans, before the attack on RI. Kutuzov just commanded the Southern Army. Yielding numerically and financially, Kutuzov was able to lock in an bag the army of the Turks, which he led .. I don’t remember exactly .. a very close relative of Pasha. He kept them in the boiler for a long time, there was not enough food, the water in the river was sent by the corpses of animals .... until Pasha made concessions and undertook not to get involved in the upcoming war ...
      Well, I don’t scare the Turks with words, but you need to beat them a little ... Cover, for example, Turkish self-propelled guns firing at SAA from Syria ....

      By some sort of arrangement, it was impossible to use bomber aircraft in Afghanistan. Bombed with Karsh Yak-28. Mig-23MLA was used as an IBA. Then pulled up the Su-17. At the end, about half a year Mig-27M

    But to understand the "psychology" of the confrontation between Turkey and Russia at the borders in Syria.
    Remember this wonderful cartoon created in the USSR in 1976.
    I will give you some quotes that surprisingly characterize not only "that political situation, but also the present."
    - The kids had a bad feature, they wanted to change the "colors".
    - And some little peanut where he sold out the slingshot and let's shoot the jellyfish.
    - I don’t touch my “little” fingers, now I want to get even with you now, let me give your “slander”.
    - And then the "dad" cried out a stranger, but it's mine. So we spanked only mine, the one that now you owe me two.

    And now that same cartoon
