Syria, March 26: Turkish military begins construction of a fortified site near Al-Kafra

22

In the province of Idlib and several other regions of Syria, armed attacks by militants of terrorist groups continue. Turkey also continues to build up its military presence in the country.


In the area of ​​the villages of Khan-Tutin and Benin in the south of Idlib province, fighters from anti-tank missile launchers fired at the positions of the Syrian government troops. As a result of the attack, the Shilka anti-aircraft installation of the Syrian Arab army received damage. According to Damascus, the attack was organized by the Khayyat Tahrir al-Sham group banned in Russia.

Several armed attacks occurred in the province of Dara. So, in the village of Al-Balad, a civilian was shot dead by militants, and in the village of Al-Alan, militants fired at a checkpoint of government troops.

In the province of Deir ez-Zor, the militants were attacked by the fortified post of the Kurdish Democratic forces of Syria in the city of Al-Harmushiya. In the province of Raqqah, a mine abandoned by Kurdish fighters blew up and killed a child.

Meanwhile, Turkey introduced another military convoy to Syria. The Turkish army’s equipment, including armored cars and special construction vehicles, passed through the Kafr-Lusin border crossing and went deeper into Idlib province, towards the Turkish fortified observation posts.

Apparently, the construction equipment can be used by the Turkish side to erect new observation posts, as well as when clearing barriers on highways that are exposed by militants operating in Idlib groups.

In the west of Idlib, near the village of Al-Kafra, the Turkish military began to build a fortified point. In the area of ​​the city of Al-Mastum, a Turkish column was also seen, which included construction equipment, armored personnel carriers and Tanks.

Thus, Turkey is deploying more and more observation posts on Syrian territory every day and increasing the presence of its military equipment and soldiers. This is similar to the occupation of a neighboring state, and not like an operation to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe, as they like to call the intervention in Ankara.

According to many experts and war correspondents directly working in the conflict zone, in the end, Turkey will have no choice but to influence the radical groups, forcing them to clear the M4 highway.

True, it is not very clear how Ankara will act. Most likely, it will be about persuading with the help of such leverage as the threat of stopping the supply of ammunition and weapons. Indeed, the groups operating in Idlib in this regard are completely dependent on Turkey.

Meanwhile, the Syrian government has another “headache” - the coronavirus is spreading in Syria, which is why increased epidemiological safety measures have been introduced in a number of cities in the country. Thus, curfews were introduced in large cities of the country: citizens are forbidden to move after a certain time, police and military patrols are detaining violators.

It is known that curfew operates in Damascus, Latakia, Aleppo, Tartus, Hama, Homs. In this case, security measures contribute not only to the fight against the epidemic, but also to the overall stabilization of the situation on the streets of large Syrian cities.

    Why should they disarm such valuable personnel? Most likely they will be thrown into neighboring areas of Syria controlled by Assad. And they themselves will move even deeper from their border in order to support their "militants" and consolidate their joint success by creating new so-called. "NP".

        Yes, definitely crowded.

        In the presence of a Turkish-terrorist alliance on the one hand, and the allied troops of the SAR and the Russian Federation, on the other, "friction" will inevitably arise. And from him, and the flame can flare up.

        Turkey’s prudence does not work. Does not work No. .

                I do not agree.
                The "coronavirus problem", problems in the economy, in no way prevented earlier and does not interfere at the moment, from strengthening in Idlib.

                Full-full box, look and climb out.

          hi
          Mandatory. The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation has already indicated the existence of a plan for stripping the M4 highway and the south of Idlib province.

    So I feel that soon the Turks will be cramped in Idlib. It's time for them to go home. On such a small heel there are three fighting armies, the fourth "... comes in and out." Very explosive, very.

    This is the occupation of the Syrian lands!
    Oil, under the pretext of helping the kudras, is stealing the United States, and the sultash seems to have begun the reconstruction of the Ottoman Empire.

    All these strongholds from a military point of view are about nothing at all. In a serious mess they will be gouged with artillery in half an hour. IMHO, such strongholds are more for a "peaceful, semi-peaceful" development of events ...

    Rather, to preserve the barmaley detachments outside the fence of these supposedly NP. There is such a child's play - "I'm in the house, don't touch me!" In general, these are ridiculous agreements between the Russian Federation and Turkey - everyone understands everything, but they pretend that everything is decent. And Syria, raped by Western democracy, suffers.

    This has long been understood. And for the implementation of the intervention they create between several countries (union, agreement, agreement) to intervene in the affairs of another country. There will be a conflict, there will be no stripping. Cleaning Idlib is now not possible, as a neighbor listened to a friend, and let the goat into his garden. Everything was done voluntarily ..

    Why flirt with the Turks? Delaying a solution to the situation is not the best option. This is the same if G.K. Zhukov waited for the arrival of marching battalions and would give the Japanese a dig on Khalkhin Gol.

      The most interesting thing about everything is that Turkey (the president of TR) never (I don’t remember this) said that it would withdraw troops from Syria ..

    coronavirus is spreading in Syria, which is why increased epidemiological safety measures have been introduced in a number of cities in the country.
    Poor people! The trouble alone does not go - the barmalei, the Americans, now the coronavirus has pulled itself up! May God (Allah) grant patience, strength and health to the Syrians and their allies!
