Turkey does not intend to withdraw troops from Idlib province

Turkey intends to maintain a military presence in the Syrian province of Idlib, the issue of the withdrawal of Turkish troops from Idlib is not considered. This was stated by Turkish Minister of Defense Hulusi Akar.


According to the head of the Turkish military department, Ankara is not considering withdrawing its military contingent from the territory of Syrian Idlib, where it has 12 observation posts.

Our presence in Idlib with all our elements continues. The withdrawal of (troops) is out of the question, all our troops remain in place

- Turkish media quoted Akar as saying.

As previously reported, as part of the Spring Shield operation, Turkey introduced personnel and armored vehicles equal to the size of one division into the territory of Idlib province. In addition, numerous armed groups supported by Turkey are located in Idlib.

At the same time, it is reported that Turkish troops began to withdraw heavy equipment from observation posts, placing it closer to the Syrian-Turkish border.

The day before, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened Syria with an “even more powerful blow” in case the Syrian government army violates the ceasefire introduced from 00:01 on March 6 according to the agreements between Russia and Turkey.

        I didn’t even doubt and do not doubt that the Volunteer Erdogan Turkish troops from Idlib, and indeed from the SAR, did not even withdraw, was not going to and would not be going to!

          Time and atmosphere will force. Although it must be admitted that the Americans will die with bones so that this does not happen, because they will have to clean next (for now, every day their thefts in the oil fields of Syria bring duty-free $ 1,0 million). For today ...:

      Not for that, the Erdogan family acquired a tanker fleet to leave Syria. Attempts to squeeze Russia out of Syria will not stop. I would not advise Russian tourists to plan a vacation in Turkey. The coronavirus is not so terrible as potential threats to return from rest in a coffin.

          So far, the media has said that during the period of hostilities in Syria, 87 servicemen of the Russian Federation died, and over the same period more than a hundred Russian tourists returned from Turkey to the grave. I am familiar with the results of emergency and emergency care in Turkey in my work, not enthusiastic. We are still better organized. And it’s more attentive to foreigners than to their own.
          So the Erdogan tanker fleet will not stand idle and the Erdoganisch will not leave Syria, not so much blood has been shed, so much money spent. And by the way, how many Turkish military personnel have already died?

      Maybe. But there really was a Turkish community in Cyprus, and in Idlib it will be necessary to recognize “open” terrorists, too, which, against the background of its struggle against the Kurds, will be beyond sanity. We will look at the borzometer.

          Yesterday, the entire page of VO was strewn with fortune-telling “lead-not-lead” Erdogan from Syria. Here is the answer - DO NOT DISPLAY. He will cling to Idlib to the last, blackmailing Assad, Russia, Europe with NATO, the United States with Arab neighbors, and Israel’s eternal enemy, since surrendering Idlib to him personally is a sentence to the noose.

        In Idlib, on the border with Turkey, Turkomans live. Northern Idlib for Turkey as Donbass for Russia. And at one time there was a referendum in Hatay on joining Turkey. So Hatay is a kind of Turkish Crimea. Most of the population there were Turks, hence the result.

    It is understandable, now if Erdogan announces the withdrawal of troops, then this will clearly be interpreted as a defeat for Turkish (Erdogan) diplomacy. Now huddle, but eventually they will leave anyway (Under the influence of force majeure wink ) In the meantime, let's fix on the M-5 and patrol the M-4. laughing

      Personally, I will not go to vote for amendments to the constitution until the Turks from Idlib are removed.

      And what is the logical connection?
      Personally, I’ll go to vote for the New Constitution, where finally the laws of the country are placed above the international dictates of the capitalist swindlers and all sorts of OSCE, IMF and other American minions. And you probably are satisfied with the old semi-colonial Constitution?

By the way, I heard oh long ... what story about "investment protection" means what ... what about the "invisible market organ"? yak zhezh competition and "do not ubispalsi at the market" ??? Let the red-headed genius be asked, he knows! Well, 20-30 million unsuccessful investors will leave the market, then out the window, well, to hell with them ... What other guarantees to private capital at the expense of the people ??? I remember we have three times understaffed the working capital of private banks at the state expense, and several times more than their authorized and total capital, but the banks are equally "private" laughing They take care of their own, overpowered, three imported jackets. Am I interested in this patience or not understanding? belay

    the withdrawal of Turkish troops from Idlib is not considered
    So in the near future no one considered it. Erdogan climbed into it with clearly defined goals and now he can be squeezed out of there (?) Only by a large number of losses and in connection with this the mass protest of the Turkish people. But the fact that Erdogan still have to slurp over his actions is beyond doubt.

      you confuse Turkey with some other country. the fact is that a large number of losses will cause a mass protest of the people, but in a completely different direction - not to withdraw troops, but to take revenge and kill all enemies.

    Turkey did not quarrel with the United States and went into confrontation with Russia in order to surrender and withdraw troops to the joy of the Syrians and Kurds. And one does not have to be a visionary in order not to understand that the events of late February and early March will be repeated again. And most likely a new offensive of militants will begin with the support of Turkey in the areas occupied by the Syrians

    Strange thing, the Syrians banned flights, but forgot to tighten their air defense
