Syria, March 20: Turkish bulldozers and militants clear M4 highway in Idlib

Turkey seems to have heeded the Russian and Syrian demand for the release of the M4 highway in Idlib province. The militants of the pro-Turkish formations began dismantling the obstacles and barriers that they themselves created.


Bulldozers owned by pro-Turkish armed groups have begun clearing sections of the M4 highway. According to available information, the Turkish military command issued an order to clear the road. However, according to other information, the militants clear the way only for passing Turkish patrols, and they do not intend to let the Russian military police through.

In turn, Syrian government forces are busy clearing the M5 Hama Aleppo highway from Khan Sheikhun to Maardabs, which is close to the recently liberated SAA Serakib. The work involved specialists from the Syrian transport department and the military. They cut off the shafts with bulldozers and removed the barriers established by the militants of the pro-Turkish formations at a time when the latter still controlled this region.

A little earlier, information appeared about the entry into the territory of Idlib province of the next Turkish military convoys of 90 cars. The Turkish column passed the Kafr-Lyasin checkpoint. However, then an unidentified explosive device exploded on the route of vehicles.

After the explosions in the area of ​​the village of Mukhambal, unknown militants attacked the Turkish military. To repulse the attack, additional forces of Turkish troops and pro-Turkish formations were deployed in the area, and unmanned aerial vehicles of the Turkish armed forces appeared in the sky above the attack area.

They suspect that the attack on the Turkish column is not the government forces of Syria or the Shiites, but the militants of Khurras Ad-Din, the Syrian branch of Al-Qaeda banned in Russia.

Interesting news came from the province of Deir ez-Zor. In the southeast of the province, unknown planes inflicted aviation attacks on the positions of pro-Iranian Shiite armed groups. The area of ​​Abu Kemal was attacked by air.

It is clear that the air forces of countries participating in the Western coalition led by the United States are suspected of carrying out the attack. After all, it was precisely American aviation that bombed the area on March 12 of this year. Then, as a result of the air raid, 26 Shiite fighters were killed.

In the province of Aleppo, in the vicinity of the settlements of Akiba, Kafr-Antun, Deir Jamal and Soganaka, pro-Turkish militants opened fire on the positions of Kurdish forces. The militants are supported by the regular armed forces of Turkey.

Thus, during the day of March 20, the situation in Syria remains quite usual for this long-suffering country: skirmishes, attacks on convoys, air strikes. Tension is felt not only in Idlib, but also in other Syrian provinces. As you can see, the Air Force of the pro-American coalition, which continues to attack the Shiite militia from the air, does not calm down at all.

The only really good news is the clearing of the M4 and M5 roads in Idlib. This indicates that Turkey nevertheless decided not to impede, at least externally, the implementation of the agreements in Moscow.

        The ruffles do not ruffle, but you have to negotiate with him. Whether someone likes it or not, but without taking into account its “approvers” or “not approving”, there is not one conflicting side who fully spuds each other.

          Putin can’t do anything. He is powerless. His time has passed.

              Thank you for such a high rating. I also really liked how the role and importance of Putin is changing. From some kind of positive value, for a short historical time to fly into a stable minus, this must be able to.

      Not the fact that the Turks with their counterparts will not come up with some kind of disguised dirty trick in response. In general, you need to be careful and strain the agents, if it has a place to be.

    And this still does not mean anything. The Turks began to dig in seriously. And they need this track more than for patrolling. And you noticed that for 20 years we have never been shown how Putin personally signed at least one agreement. Therefore, now I do not believe that the agreements will be respected.

      hi
      It is possible, but the RF Ministry of Defense presented an ultimatum to Turkey - to fulfill the obligations by the end of March.
    2. It turns out that you believe only in what they show you?

    According to available information, the order to clear the road was given by the Turkish military command.


    Naturally, they clean themselves for themselves ...

      Kurds, like some substance in the hole, stick to the shore from which more promises are made to recognize their independence, to give them territories, and, of course, where they pay more from. Those still just ... fallen women.

    You can argue for a long time. Who signs what and who points whom. The fact remains.
    Erdogan flies to Moscow, not Putin to Ankara.

      reminds of himself and his interests, agrees with partners what he wants and what he can get. In a snap, they did not manage to squeeze out the territory, now they want to leave their influence in the north and a piece as big and fat as possible, and preferably with oil.

      It is important not who to whom and where it flies, but what they sign and how the agreements are implemented.

    Apparently they didn’t have enough UAVs that were previously shot down, it is necessary that they still fall.

    Offended to see, but obviously suspect, too, for some reason.

    But the Turks, as I wrote earlier, want the north of Syria in part, they got it, their chain dogs like listening to them and therefore they will observe their interests, and are unlikely to let the Asad troops into their territories. It remains only with the Kurds to settle the issues and they will get under their control the north of Syria.
