Syria, March 9: Turkey continues to transfer forces to Idlib


Despite the agreement reached on a ceasefire in Idlib, the situation in this Syrian province remains tense. Militants violate the de-escalation regime, some groups generally refused to abide by it.


The leader of the Huras ad-Din group, Abu Hummam al-Shami, issued a statement saying that his organization would not recognize the ceasefire and would continue fighting against Syrian government forces. Moreover, al-Shami called for more active use of suicide bombers for attacks on positions and convoys of government troops.

Recall that the existence of the Huras ad-Din group, the Guardians of Religion, became known in February 2018. This structure is actually the official branch of Al-Qaeda (banned in Russia) in Syria and is staffed mainly by foreign fighters, although it also includes Syrians. Idlib province is home to the organization’s headquarters. “Huras ad-Din” is distinguished by its strict anti-Russian orientation, has repeatedly proclaimed the liquidation of the Khmeimim base as one of its main goals.

However, many detachments of militants, including those not related to the Huras ad-Din, did not even think of observing a truce. Events develop as expected: militants continue to shell government positions. So, in the Al-Gassania region there were shootings between militants and military personnel of government forces.


In the area of ​​Serakib during the patrol and inspection of the liberated territory, the Syrian Arab army discovered a chemical storage weapons, which may indicate an attempt to prepare a provocation in Serakib. It remains to establish where the militants got their chemical weapons. Given that the weapons and ammunition found in similar caches were made in the United States, Turkey or Western Europe, certain assumptions can be made.

By the way, Turkey, which agreed on a ceasefire, continues to transfer forces and equipment (military equipment) to Idlib. That is, it is likely that Ankara will simply take advantage of a kind of respite to build up its military presence in the region and supply arms, ammunition and military equipment to militant-controlled formations. In just one day, at least three military convoys of the Turkish army were seen when moving to Idlib province.

Turkish unmanned aerial vehicles also continue to fly over Syrian territory. True, they have not yet attacked the positions of the Syrian troops, but are present only with reconnaissance purposes. Turkish President Recep Erdogan himself shortly after meeting in Moscow with Vladimir Putin said that Ankara would reserve the possibility of unilateral action and would also respond to Syrian government forces in the event of shelling on their part in Idlib.

In fact, these words can be understood as a willingness to stop the ceasefire at any time. In addition, provocations against the Syrian Arab army are not ruled out. For example, Turkey may use militants dressed in uniform of the regular Turkish army to shell Syrian positions, after which it will declare that it is taking measures in response to aggression by troops loyal to Bashar al-Assad.

Not calm in other parts of Syria. So, in the province of Hasek, the Syrians stoned a military column of the American army. In the southern regions of the province of Raqqa, Syrian troops launched a military operation to identify the remnants of the IS formations (prohibited in Russia). In the province of Aleppo, the Syrian military continues to mine cleared areas.

        Yes, it’s not rotation, but the saturation of the troops of the part of Idlib, populated by the Turkoman, which, after March 5, by agreement, most likely left to Turkey. Most likely the Turks will not hand over the gangs controlled by themselves, and then they will hold a referendum so that the SAA does not take any action now goes there one turkish column after another.

      It’s premature to speak about the trap, but the Turks play into the Pentagon’s hands, diverting the attention of the SAA from the Kurdish territories. And they suffer losses everywhere, the same suicide tactics used by the barmalei are used against the Turks.

      1. There it seems that from two sides they decided to chop down the nusra and uncontrolled militants.
        But what will happen after that is an interesting question.

On the contrary, the United States and Turkey are doing their best to delay the final defeat of the militants.

            No, there are options, given the desire of Saudi Arabia to withstand the influence of Turkey and Iran. After all, they blew up the pro-Turkish jihadists.
            Saudi Arabia has agreed to the United States to participate in the creation of a new Arab militia in northeastern Syria. This was reported by the publication Arabi21 with reference to Syrian sources. Corresponding negotiations between the Americans and the Saudis took place the day before in the city of Hasek, which is the center of the province of the same name. The Saudi ruling house, as noted, wants to prevent the spread of Iranian influence and keep Turkey from further offensive operations.

            Riyadh's commitment will include training and funding for Arab fighters. These ethnic-based formations will be part of the Syrian Democratic Forces (DSS), an international alliance collaborating with the United States, whose backbone is made up of Kurdish people's self-defense units.

              Of course there is. This is what makes Americans more and more fueling the conflict in Syria, while staying on the sidelines and, if necessary, correcting the failure of their wards, with missile attacks on Syria or militia commanders with authority. According to Syrian intelligence, one of the senior officials arrived in Idlib American military commanders, to coordinate actions with Turkey, and jihadists about the Turkish orientation, and assess the operational situation.

      Turkish gambit. When they give up a pawn (part of Idlib to Turkey) in order to gain an advantage. By tying Turkey to itself in this way and preserving the Russia-Turkey-Iran axis. The Arab world will be against it. The opposition will be finished or it will have to unite with the Kurds on the lands they control, but it will do little to it. Against the Kurds there will be Turkey, Iran, Iraq ,Syria.

I hope the same in military air defense. I hope that the Tochka-U launchers are already ready and are holding on to the sight of accumulations of equipment and observation points of the Turks. I hope that cooperation with our group has been established and the Syrians are receiving intelligence data from space, from the air, from the radar

    Well, it’s obvious that Turkey’s main goal is to squeeze out this territory completely, and a truce is a necessary measure for regrouping, respite and saturating its pocket militants with weapons and equipment, in addition to this, the introduction of additional Turkish armed forces. The Turks simply met the Russian resistance and took a break, for more thorough drafting and elaboration of the plan. When all these actions are completed, there will certainly be a provocation against the forces of the Syrian government army. And then the Turks will bring down the full strike power to the region, blaming Assad for everything, including the breakdown of agreements between Russia. I think along the way, Russia will be blamed.

      Greetings Victor hi Most likely they will try to share the hash like Cinderella. Turkoman is always the opposition, just a little - we are Turks, but the owner obeys, but the militants brought in all sorts of trends and directions have already bent the campaign of the Turkoman, that is, they forced them to cooperate by force, there is such infa. And how to divide, if not directly by troops, into one barmaley a couple of soldiers? And Erdogan in Turkey with its economy, after our tomatoes and even the American dirty tricks with the lyre, also lacked saboteurs along with parasites, and he got a lot of dissatisfied there, though he cleaned up the clearing, but eventually will appear again. In its place, it’s really better not to touch this viper, they’ll live well and to hell with them, and because they beat on our base, because on the east they are our problems, on Turks they don’t beat ... In general, there’s a huge problem if you really try to divide, everyone and ours and the Syrians and Turks got ...

        The rest of the problems are also because this trickster is ready to “cut them” at anyone’s expense, but not at his own expense!
        An ordinary eastern ruler ... however, where is it wrong?
        So it’s hard to say what will be better, since we are very far away and far from know everything! soldier

      it wasn’t like that when Kofi Annan was, 25 years ago, a UN contingent general in Rwanda informed the upcoming genocide, Kofi didn’t do anything when the genocide began, and he also ordered to reduce the UN mission.
      Something like this. Several million Tutsi were then massacred. Then the UN imposed sanctions against the Hutus, which essentially made it worse by dropping the fallen economy.

      there are existing structures. BUT they will act if ALL AGREE and are ready to fulfill

      And what's the point of complaining there? Permanent members of the Security Council with the right of veto rule there, against which no one can do anything. The UN was originally a fig leaf for united gangs of states. Non-aligned states, the Islamic Conference, African cooperation, and other groups at the United Nations laughed at common sense as they promoted their resolutions. And in general .. the construction of the UN with the principle: one country - one vote, wrong.

    And the Americans did not please him, and the Turks and the representatives of international terrorist groups banned from us.

      So let them take it, then the question will be able to return or not. Turkey will be able to control the territory or not.
      Rather, a matter of time and perseverance. And how general this country is, how the country took place.

      All the same, they are strange:
      * The Jews have squeezed the gallans from them,
      * Turkey invaded too,
      * The US invaded is also not particularly moving.
      but .... this is their country, but in the army + -50 thousand people, out of 18 million people.


      ps Total, they are still tribal, do not understand what a country is.
      Here is your tribe / village, for them it is clear.
      pss And the victory of the Syrians is obvious, they squeezed out 30-40% of the territory, and control of the two main routes connecting the country. In one full control, in another joint, Turkey / Russia.

    The situation in Syria is the calm before the storm, a new clash with the Turks is inevitable, and I think everyone perfectly understands this. Russia is not up to Syria now, we have a lot of problems ourselves and the Turks know this, therefore they are building up their military forces in Syria.
