Turkey did not explain why Idlib throws long-range artillery to observation posts

Images appeared on the network showing the transfer of military equipment from the Turkish armed forces in Idlib province. We are talking about the actions of the Turkish military contingent to equip two more “observation posts”.


The Turks create one of these posts in the area of ​​the city of Jizr al-Shugur, which is controlled by militants opposing the Syrian government forces (SAA). The object is being created on the important M4 highway, for which stubborn battles took place several weeks ago.

The Turkish army also arranges another observation post on the M4 highway, but somewhat east. It is located between Jizzr al-Shugur and Serakib - in the area of ​​the settlement of Ariha.

If the question is, as the Turkish side claims, about the establishment of ceasefire observation points, then for what purpose are self-propelled howitzers and towed long-range artillery towed to these objects?



The Syrian media write that this is not an arrangement of observation posts, but a real attribute of Turkey’s military occupation of the country. It is noted that the Turkish army can use artillery, for example, to support militants if they suddenly try again to seize Serakib or advance in the south of Idlib province.



Turkey itself did not explain why heavy military equipment, including long-range artillery, was being transferred to observation points.

          He was helped (by the Russian Federation) to avoid the fate of Gaddafi or Hussein, in the best case, a prison, as a result of a failed coup d'etat. And now he does not trust the "West" and he has acquired problems with the Russian Federation.

        hi

        This is of course chaos, and not only in Syria, with the Kurds and in Iraq, with the Armenians, Greeks. At the forums, the Turks are jumping: forward forward, we are rebuilding the empire, they don’t understand how they gave Serakib after such victories, it doesn’t even occur that they are in a foreign country. So in their minds this is a thirst for revenge. Militants are also unlikely to lay down their arms. Ours gave them time until the end of March. So a relapse is inevitable, everyone is getting ready.

            Syria, this is Russian Vietnam for Russia. A distant, unnecessary country. To fight in which we can not afford. No gauges and other Kremlin miracles will help. We’ll leave or run away anyway.

          It is precisely on such patriotic surges that Erdogan wants to rise. I must admit that while this is given to him and the crowd is now behind him. Without even creating a new empire, but only declaring his desire to do this, showing how he brings his troops into the territory of the once existing empire, he already wins and gains points inside the country.

    Ours agree with someone, but for some reason only our side observes the agreement. Or so they agree that the language is vague — the habit is good when promising your electorate, but it doesn’t work with others.

    Artillery is good if there is no active counteraction to it. It is very risky to place artillery near some objects and become attached to them. They will cover both at once ... If such a decision is made.

        Almost half of the Syrian population (4 million refugees in Turkey and about 4 million along the border with Turkey) see them as saviors. These facts can be ignored, but this is a reality that will not give Turkey any other option. They are forced to do something and it doesn’t it’s not connected with ambitions ... Therefore, they will not leave until everything settles down in Syria, returning refugees will be held elections. After making sure that Syria is united and they did not divide the country between the Alawites and Kurds, they will leave, because their goal is United Syria, which borders with Turkey. They said it every step of the way. yut.Tak understand that a long process, but a necessary one.

          In the province of Idlib, only 1.5 million. It was before the war. Where did you find 4 million Syrians there? And why, when Erdogan sends refugees to Greece, out of tens of thousands of refugees there are only a couple of Syrians ... So what about Erdogan for refugees? And where are they from? Therefore, stop lying about the "savior" ... Also me, "Doctor Aibolit" ...

            During the fighting throughout Syria, many people from other provinces fled to Idlib province, since the opposition headquarters were at the very beginning of Idlib’s boom, because there were many people who were against Assad from the very beginning. areas of Afrin and El-Bab. Erdogan sends to Europe mainly accumulated transit countries in Turkey from Afghanistan, Iran and other Asian countries (their number is estimated at 500 thousand people). Partially, Syrians have been traveling, who have been living in Turkey for 8-9 years and waiting for the moment to to get into the EU. Turkey kept them within the framework of agreements with the EU, like, you will keep them, and we will help you with finances. For 9 years, the EU has fulfilled its promises partially, at least the level of promises. Therefore, the Turks opened the border, offering the EU that now you contain, if you do this to us. I tell you the real situation, there is no intention to add or reduce, as I consider it pointless.
