The militants attempted to advance towards Maaret-en-Nuuman after the Turkish strike on the SAA


From Ankara there are reports that Turkey has begun consultations with NATO in connection with the ongoing events in Idlib. Erdogan is going to enlist the support of the North Atlantic Alliance and implement the previously announced plan for a direct combat clash with the Syrian army. The only thing that prevents Erdogan from starting a war against Syria is Russia's position.


Against this background, the Turkish army attacked territories in northern Syria, which are controlled by Kurdish armed forces supported by the United States. Turkish ammunition exploded in the settlements of Tel Rifat, Ziar and Deir Jamal south of Aaaz, occupied by Turkish troops.

In addition, it became known that Turkish artillery, located at one of the so-called observation posts, dealt a blow to the positions of the Syrian troops in the vicinity of the villages of Khan ash-Saybul and Marat-Dibsakh. These settlements are located on the M5 highway in the Serakib - Maaret en Nuuman section. After this shelling, the militants attempted to advance along the highway. At the moment, the militants stopped the counter-attack by the SAA. But they are trying to regroup and continue the offensive.



Meanwhile, the militants who occupied Serakib the day before were under heavy fire. The leading terrorist groups supported by Turkey received air strikes at the moment when they tried to gain a foothold on the eastern outskirts of the city - in the vicinity of the village of Al-Haj-Khalil. The militants suffered losses and the survivors hastened (traditionally) to snuggle up to the Turkish "observation post".

The governor of the Turkish province of Hatay announced the data on Turkish losses in Syrian Idlib: 33 soldiers were killed, 32 were injured. The wounded were evacuated to Turkish territory.

During consultations with NATO countries, not all members come forward with the indispensable support of Turkey in its actions in Syria. US Erdogan supported.

    It would be time for the Kurds living there to stop running between the smart and beautiful, and to decide on their future toughly. Either a colony on handouts from the United States, which it and the Turks will forever spread rot, or autonomy within Syria, with the rights and capabilities of normal Syrian citizens. And if so, then let them go to drive turchin with fighters from Syrian land.

        I don’t give a damn - we just need Syria and Libya, and then Palestine with the ultimate sacred “assemblage point” - Jerusalem.

        What is this stream of consciousness? Specify who specifically needs a "sacred assembly" with Jerusalem ...

          Well, what are you entitled to such trifles. Well, it’s like, “God have mercy,” in Orthodoxy, or in Soviet times, it is imperative to remember Marx, Lenin, and the current Secretary General during a report or political information. Maybe this is such a plan - cunning. Nowhere without tricks. wink
          But the text itself is very much in the subject.
          Or on the site and in some environments it became indecent to talk and think about your state?
          About his - state interests?
          And for a "decent man" it is proper only to whine and spit on him?
          Don't you find that this is simply the absence of your own, informed opinion?
          Are you catching hype?
          I am sure that you do not think so.
          But it looks that way.
          Yes, and is in fact.
          Do not take offense, now with many so. It's easier .
          They clicked a button somewhere - all of “Hurray Crimea is ours!”.
          They pressed another - "Putin stole the pension."
          But exactly, is Putin? What did he say about this and tried to do? In what conditions was this muck dragged? What threats and blackmail were used?
          Hand wave.
          Like everyone - let's go for the smart one.
          "Conspiracy Theory" yelling.
          Flood with legs, slam handles.
          And what is it on our arms and legs?
          What are these strings?
          Who pulls the strings there?

          By the way, this is not for you, Aleksey, it is probably less than many concerns you. Also a stream of thought.
          If about the notorious “Jerusalem”, then ... Israel, it’s like ... a bust of Lenin in the “Leninist room” (it used to be) - it’s big, it hinders everyone but in the most visible and honorable place is a ritual.
          And the rest is a sound analysis.

    If a slaughter begins in Syria, then the SAA will be defeated stopudovo.
    If our VKS support, then it will be a little later.
    If the Turks begin to shoot down our planes, then we will have to tight. Hmeimim can’t do it.
    Without strikes on the territory of Turkey from Russia and the Black Sea, our group is powerless.
    As a result, if we decided together with Syria to butt with the Turks at their border, then we and Syria will lose. It will be the sunset of our glory and the beginning of the end.
    Conclusion: do not be afraid to show your teeth. Soak everything to smithereens. If the Turks begin to use aviation, air defense, artillery from their territory - to hit the territory of Turkey (airfields, bases, arsenals). Yes, this is a full-fledged war, but in another way we will get Churchill's famous words ...

          Gritsa, I put a plus in both posts. The people simply did not understand yet that our group and the commander-in-chief approached the Rubicon. And then either defeat or victory. Moreover, in both cases it will be necessary to use all Russian power to the fullest.
          If the contingent is clamped down and the straits are blocked, it will be necessary to supply and strengthen somehow ... and even just stamping on the spot is a loss. In the event of large-scale clashes, or rather the war with Turkey, it will not be possible to get out with little blood. against the whole west in the person of Turkey.
          Well, there is simply no strength to defeat the above on the spot. We have already begun to butt with the Turks. Next only forward or backward. Trampling on the spot is a defeat.
          And how can they drive out and defeat the Turks without defeating them? And with a little blood it’s a tactical nuclear charge, for example ... yes, there will be a lot of stench and screaming, but not a single scum will be greyhound anymore.
          Strelkov was right 5 years ago.

        We don’t need to fight by ourselves, but to help the Syrian Armed Forces in terms of creating air defense in the Idlib region, so that the Turkish Air Force does not even think of striking at the Syrian army, this is necessary. It is also necessary to increase the supply of Syrian weapons (of various equipment, from machine guns to MLRS), so that the Syrians themselves could suppress the Turkish artillery and, in the event of the Turks coming, could provide a worthy response. But this is my personal opinion IMHO of course .... but when trying to bring down our VKS, we already need to answer for ourselves and it does not matter who it is, if such actions lead to war it will not be our choice, but watch with impunity they’re trying to bring down our planes, and how Turkish militants attack Khmeimim with drones and missiles, is impossible.

        Russia is the first to use nuclear weapons - the blue dream of all NATO and Anglo-Saxon propaganda in particular. For a long time, they would have already shunned them somewhere to blame Russia, but the trouble is that the decay product now, like a fingerprint, will immediately show the manufacturer. Therefore - only a "beginner", "BUK" and others.

        We have an advantage over Turkey in the army and armaments, but the alliance will support them, and in the event of a close victory, threatening to enter the war, they will force us to stop. But what will be the losses ... And many people will want to participate in this bourgeois war?

        I do not agree with you. If NATO does not shake up, then we will certainly defeat Turkey. It’s enough just to at least compare the forces.
        The land component can not be taken into account - we do not have a Turkish border. Although, no one excludes the clash with our forces in Armenia. This is how Armenia and Georgia will behave.
        The fleet in the region is approximately equal in strength. And taking into account the fresh revenues at the Black Sea Fleet, it is even more powerful with us. Plus armed with Caliber. Which, however, is not enough on ships. But in contrast to the Turks, we have a powerful coastal defense (Balls, Bastions, Coast, Cliff). So get to us they have a zero chance.
        Aviation. The Turks have a lot of it. But it all practically consists of F-16 fighters. They, in contrast to the south, will be additionally deployed our fighter, plus front-line, plus bomber, plus sea. I am sure that the Tu-22 and Tu-160 will fly over the Black Sea like a scheduled fast train.
        And of course OTRK. Iskander steers. All bases within its reach are simply potential ruins.
        About air defense, I do not even want to compare.
        It turns out that if necessary, on the ground with the Turks, the MP and the Airborne Forces can be involved. When the whole sky will be clear. I hope that no one will have any objections to their combat capabilities.

      We are strong "backward mind." Throughout the entire stay of the Russian army in Syria, it was necessary to train and equip the SAA with modern weapons, to the point where the SAA could withstand the army of the "Sultan." It was necessary to defeat the "opponents of Assad" so quickly that the "Sultan" would not have time to intervene ... All of the above should be "put into practice" about 5 years ago. Now it’s possible only to “help” the Kurds, so that the “Sultan” is in another place and “leaves” Idlib himself.

      They only stopped reputational losses after the downing of the Ukrainian Boeing.
      Iran will remain in alliance with Russia

    Ankara reports that Turkey has begun consultations with NATO

    NATO Charter. Article 5 “Contracting Parties agree that armed attack on one or more of them in Europe or North America will be considered as an attack on them as a whole, and, therefore, agree that if such an armed attack takes place, each of them, in exercise of the right to individual or collective self-defense, recognized by Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations Nations will assist the Contracting Party affected, or Contracting Parties subjected to such an attack, by immediately carrying out such an individual or joint action as it considers appropriate by direct, including the use of armed force, to restore and maintain the security of the North Atlantic area. "

    Who attacked Turkey? It was she who began military operations on the territory of a third country, in addition not located on the territory of Europe or North America. "So NATO will not officially render any assistance to the Turks.

      Turkey without suffocation will suffocate in just a hundred or two hundred years, hence the irreversible desire to return the Ottoman colonies. You can only stop by shortening the handles step by step. Who does, no matter. It is important to limit aggression.

      Well, tell us why Turkey suffocates.

        The role of the center of the Turkish world passes to Kazakhstan. And so, think whatever you want.

          The role of the center of the European world is moving to Thailand. Analytics is about this level. Can you bring some facts and logical chains?

            No less important is the fact that Turkey has lost the role of a strong leader of the Turkic countries. (And, as you know, effective integration takes place around a strong center). The currency has settled down (at thirty percent since the beginning of the year) and the economy. Today, for example, Kazakhstan feels more confident.

            He has higher GDP per capita, more gold reserves. Astana, following the example of Moscow, is increasing its reserves of physical gold and has already bypassed Britain by this indicator, having come close to Saudi Arabia and is well ahead of Turkey.

    During consultations with NATO countries, not all members come forward with the indispensable support of Turkey in its actions in Syria.
    And what kind of nonsense will NATO be for the Turks, who are not fighting in their own territory ?!

    Yes, this is a full-fledged war, but in another way we will get Churchill's famous words ...

    But what about the gas pipeline, nuclear power plant and Russian Natasha in the resorts of Turkey !!! You didn’t think about them.

    And they are only connected with the personality of Erdogan so far ... Well, it will be there ... not Erdogan, the same gas pipeline, nuclear power plant, but Natasha is still in quarantine, like all other lovers of foreign vacations.

    I completely agree, our bourgeois leadership is drawing us into a war with Turkey, and you can throw me Turkish tomatoes, without using nuclear weapons we will lose this war, this will be the beginning of the end of the current bourgeois regime as in 1905 after the defeat in the war with Japan

    We have an advantage over Turkey in the army and armaments, but the alliance will support them, and in the event of a close victory, threatening to enter the war, they will force us to stop. But what will be the losses ... And many people will want to participate in this bourgeois war?

    The Alliance will not support, no one will want to meet for the Turks because they know that this is fraught with getting a good fried spit. they were already made clear to them.
