Syria, March 13: Turkish convoy with fuel trucks and bulldozers entered Idlib

Today's events in Syria do not give reason to argue for a decrease in aggression in this country. Armed clashes occurred in several provinces. It seems that the war of all against all continues.


A few minutes ago it became known that another Turkish convoy entered the territory of Idlib province through the Qasr al-Banat checkpoint. It is noteworthy that in its composition, in addition to army equipment, several fuel trucks, as well as heavy bulldozers.

Presumably, the fuel trucks will be sent to the so-called observation points of the Turkish Armed Forces in Idlib, and bulldozers will be involved in clearing the territories after the recently completed battles.



In the north of Idlib province, local residents entered into armed conflict with the militants of the Khayyat Tahrir al-Sham terrorist group (formerly Jebhat al-Nusra, banned in the Russian Federation). The Iranian information portal Step News Agency reported that a local resident was beaten by militants at a checkpoint at the entrance to the city of Sarmada. After that, armed people arrived at the checkpoint and entered the battle with jihadists. There are dead on both sides.

To the north-east of the city of Hama, unknown fighters made a sortie into the territory controlled by the SAA. Presumably they came from Idlib.

In the east of Raqqah province, representatives from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) fired on a motorcade where civilians were stationed. Several people were injured.

It is also known that 92 locals who have already completed the “young fighter course” have joined the SDF. The population of the province is dissatisfied with the fact that Kurdish armed formations are recruiting recruits most often by force.

An East Syrian organization, Sada Al-Sharqieh, covering events in this part of the country, reports of an air raid on Iranian militia bases near Abu Kemal in the province of Deir ez-Zor. It's probably about a raid committed by an American aviation after the Taji military base in Iraq was attacked.

      Turks are going to gain a foothold. And only further increase tension in the region. Erdogan is cunning that he does not want to pinch anything off the "integrity of Syria." In fact, he introduces an occupation corps into Idlib, which will become the basis for the annexation of part of Syrian territory. negative

    There is nothing to clatter with them.

    It is necessary to prepare to clean out Idlib. Build air defense around Idlib in order to remove Turkish UAVs from the sky before they can attack Syrian forces, give Syria new MiG-29s with R-77 missiles, Buki, build up ground forces, artillery reconnaissance systems to instantly suppress Turkish artillery and clear this province needs terrorists, in spite of all attempts by Turkey to prevent this.

    Turkey is insolent in the region, already offers Russia to extract oil together in Syria, they are threatening that then they will do it together with the USA.

    Turkey needs to be severely taught a lesson, everything that they are capable of we have seen, it is necessary to prepare forces, strike and knock them out of Syrian land.

      The sense of these MiG-29s ..., they will also be copied by the Turkish AWAC, and the F-16s will be landed by AMRAAMs from the "out of reach" zone. They have S-300 BUKI Armor, let them customize and provide "no flight zone"

        and the F-16 will land AMRAAMs from the “out of reach” zone

        The last time the Turks couldn’t shoot down the Su-22 with AMRAAM. That’s what it means to take precautions in advance. The loss of two Su-24s and the training aircraft is largely due to the effect of surprise. The Turkish F-16 was also warned in advance about the attack of the SAM -200 and left the rocket.

    What you can completely agree with is that
    the war of all against all continues
    Moreover, the war bleeds all who participate in it. If the Americans and their allies did not actively support the militants, then the point would have already been set. Of course, a minor guerrilla war would have continued, but this is compared to what is happening today a trifle.

    Turkey is a regional power (like Pakistan, Brazil, etc.), and it’s impossible to simply fulfill the calls of couch strategists. “Show mother Kuzkin, pull, break” - this is not for Turkey. It is only possible to set up barriers and to limit its ambitions by alternating the use of force and negotiations.
    Assad in Syria is by no means the leader of the majority and hit a bunch of stocks at one time, but there is no one to replace him, and Russia is also a hostage to the situation there. We have to negotiate with regional players - Turkey, Israel, Iran, Kurds. What our people do, where it is necessary to use bombers, where diplomacy and economic buns. It should be emphasized that, in a purely military sense, squeezing Turkey out of Syria is quite possible, but non-military costs in the region will far outweigh the advantages of this. Politics, her mother ... and there is no smell of morality and justice.

      Yes, to give you the weight of Turkey. What did Ankara demonstrate that could confirm that it is impossible to show the mother of the Turks to Kuzkin? Attack and drones? Yes, effective. But it is necessary to take into account the fact that the Syrians did not concentrate enough air defense equipment in this direction, since the Barmalei do not have UAVs and aviation and Ankara used the surprise factor. What's in the finale? They squeezed out half of Idlib, leaving 11 Turkish observation posts in the rear of the SAA in isolation. For a couple of weeks of active support for the Barmalei, the Turks lost fifty troops and a certain number of armored vehicles + 7 drones, despite the fact that the SAA did not conduct targeted combat operations against the Turkish contingent and they fell under distribution either in the battle formations of terrorists, or the terrorists were huddled under their cover. What are the successes? As a result, Turkey rejecting the requirement to return the CAA to the positions stipulated in the Sochi agreements, adopted a new line of demarcation on the fact of finding the positions of the CAA.

      If Assad had been so bad, then the army would hardly have supported him for 9 years. Moreover, note that the forces supporting Assad are not represented by Alavites alone.

        1. "What matters is not intentions, but potential." Although NATO is not the same, it’s the second most powerful army. And if you take into account that the Syrians are very exhausted, the economy is in the pen, and only a small part has the training, then after the departure of the Russian Federation, Turkey would have rolled it out, even without the help of the barmalei.
        2. Assad's mistakes are primarily geopolitical. Being in such an environment - Turkey, Israel, restless Kurdistan, Iraq - it was necessary to reduce arrogance and negotiate. Of course, with the beginning of the database this is no longer relevant. See also the history of Assad's conflict with the Sultan.
        3. And this is so, but obligations also arise under contracts.
        4. Non-war is a complication of the transit of goods through straits, pipelines, destabilization of Transcaucasia, curtailment of economic cooperation, and as a result, a decrease in the influence of the Russian Federation in the region. I hope no one argues that thin trade is better than good war?

          Generally true. But we must admit that the Turkish army, in contrast to the SAA, does not have enough combat experience and its main “combat potential” is just the barmalei who have been fighting for 9 years and have been working at the forefront of the military contact with the Syrians, receiving art support Turks from the depths of defense. In the case of the involvement of Turkish aviation at full capacity, the Syrians would have to be tight, definitely. But somehow it is thought that even in a tattered state, the SAA is capable of inflicting considerable losses on the Turks.

          The mistake of Assad and the Syrian people lies not in geopolitics, but in the geographical position and the presence of oil fields. If they didn’t have oil, then there would be no mattresses and an anti-Assad coalition from 60 countries. As for relations with the Sultan, at one time the Assad and Erdogan families were friends and even periodically stopped by each other for a cup of tea, and then Edik wanted some oil and sacrificed normal relations in favor of his ambitions.

          Turkey cannot close the straits for any country unless it is at war with it. The gas pipeline is a double-edged sword, blocking the transit through which Ankara itself deprives itself of stable energy supplies and financial support, which in the current conditions is sensitive for the Turkish economy. The destabilization of Transcaucasia, in principle, was and is the strategy of the Turks for the long term, but after the events in Chechnya, it somewhat decreased its activity. In case of accelerating events in this direction, it can get a serious aggravation in the Kurdish direction, despite the fact that now we do not support the Kurds openly, but we are talking to them, not only from the Turkish PKK, but also in the Syrian direction, where CAA and Kurds can join forces to counter Ankara, which is a common enemy for them.

            Assad managed to offend the wife of the Sultan, there is not forgotten. Territory and oil only later on the jackal principle.
            And even if the sultan was so hungry for gratuitous oil, he would have hit the Kurds along the Mosul-Erbil-Kirkuk line with the help of his barmales. There is an order of magnitude more oil. I would blow up a couple of shopping centers at my place, put them under anti-terror against the PKK as an otvetku, would agree with the Yankees (ordering another F-35, etc.). The Russian Federation is not there, Iran is also not interested- (there is no Israel nearby) and the point is in the hat.
            "The mistake of Assad and the Syrian people lies not in geopolitics, but in the geographical position and the presence of oil fields." And how much oil was in Serbia / Kosovo? And whom did the Yankees control from there? No, this is pure geopolitics, not burdened with morality and even momentary financial gain.

        For some reason, many people on the site believe that war is something like a computer game, who shoots someone, while war is the achievement of certain political goals by extreme direct influence, and military operations are not a contest of technical means, but the right strategy and tactics of using one’s own forces and funds in the given conditions.
        Therefore, the rest of Idlib will be squeezed out when the political preconditions are formed for this and appropriate forces and means are prepared
        In the meantime, the Turks can go to their posts even on bulldozers, even on excavators,
        This is their right under existing agreements.

          Moreover, our military police provide convoys for their food and medical supplies. How much they will still stick around there is not known, but it seems that Ankara will remove them quietly since they currently do not play any role and can change their status for prisoners of war at any time.

      Shoals jambs strife. If Assad was not in Syria, but somewhere, like in Lithuania or Kyrgyzstan, then no one would have "bothered" him. But because Syria is the center of BV and has hydrocarbons, the approach to Assad is different. They do not care about everyday problems of the population. They need exactly Syria. Composed paper for the UN,
      under the name "Coalition from 63 countries", and climbed brazenly into the country with a cry - "Assad must leave." And for 9 years now they have been tormenting the country. Is this, for the population, better than the “Asad regime” ?! Now they are also climbing to Venezuela, because it is not Lithuania or Kyrgyzstan. There are also large hydrocarbon reserves and, moreover, is an underbelly for the United States. So the "majority leaders" are media myths. Gaddafi was a favorite of his people. Where is he ?! hi

        They do not need Syria on its own. Oil there for several million dollars a day, which they can print, they won’t even notice. Here, to screw a bolt with the left-hand thread of Turkey (supporting the Kurds), do nice to Israel, click on the nose of Iran, do the dirty tricks of the Russian Federation (with military bases, another gray territory near Transcaucasia), organize your bases in the region (outside of capricious Turkey and Iraq) - of course Assad must leave. Moreover, with relatively low cost.
        Gaddafi was not at all and not so, otherwise the protesters would be torn apart with their bare hands even before the bombing. In the East, people are hot, you know. With what result in Grozny or Makhachkala would have passed (without even starting) a rally piled together with a gay parade, what do you think? I will tell you more, even in one of the southern cities of the Krasnodar Territory, such a focus was suppressed in the bud, and by no means by power structures.
