“52 shelters and a warehouse, 250 kg of explosives”: Turkish Defense Ministry reports on “neutralizing terrorists” and their arsenal in Syria

19

The Turkish Ministry of Defense presented a report on the results of operations in the Syrian Arab Republic in March of this year. Representing the press service of the Turkish military, Colonel Alkay Denizer, head of the public relations department, said that a total of 80 terrorists were killed last month. Moreover, Ankara in this case refers to terrorists as PKK / YPG armed men from the Kurdistan Workers Party.


Drunk Denizer:

The main phase of the operation was carried out by our commandos in the Tel Rifat area, where terrorists tried to invade the territory of the military mission by Turkish troops.

According to him, Turkish troops destroyed 52 shelters, a warehouse and a crypt.

From the report of the Ministry of Defense of Turkey:

More than 250 kg of ammonium nitrate, 2,5 kilograms of C-4 explosive, 92 detonators, and other components of explosive devices were seized.

The same Denizer said that the fight against terrorism is conducted on the territory of Turkey itself. He noted that organized confrontation with the “FETÖ forces” continues. These are the forces of Fethullah Gulen, whom Ankara accuses of sponsoring the coup attempt. Gulen himself lives, recall, in the United States. The Turkish Ministry of Defense said that at the moment, trials in the country are conducted against more than 5 "Gulenists", including former military personnel.

Denizer:

Since July 20, 2016, 19 people involved in the coup attempt were dismissed from the Turkish Armed Forces.


It must be recalled that in 2016, an attempted coup in Turkey failed. Ankara then thanked Russia for providing data on the mood and plans of the opponents of Recep Erdogan, whose fate hung, as they say, in the balance.

      The Turks say that, but it doesn’t seem very true.

        The compact residence of Turkish, Syrian, Iraqi Kurds. Turkey is afraid of the idea of ​​creating a single Kurdistan, and therefore it is climbing.

          It is interesting to read the report on the punitive struggle against terrorists.

    And how many real terrorists were killed in Idlib, which is in Turkey's zone of responsibility? Or are they not terrorists, but a "moderate opposition" that needs help? In the liberated territories, the Syrian army finds warehouses with American, European, Turkish weapons and b / n. And this is not 52 stash, as in the Turkish "victory" reports.

    In translation "from Turkish": all who are "non-Turk" are all "terrorists". ... With the exception of the "internationalists" from NATO. laughing

    In such cases, the person must be obliged to the savior all his life.
    But here, obviously not the case. Smiles flatteringly, but the stone from his bosom does not take out. Such are much more dangerous than an open enemy.

      "Turks" and "obliged" are things from parallel universes. You can be sure that the Turk will fulfill his obligations only in one case - if you presented a pistol to his temple. In all other respects, the signed documents are not worth the paper spent. I'm talking primarily about politics.

    Ammonium nitrate is not so much explosive as a common fertilization. It turns out that the Turks captured a rural warehouse. I wonder what kind of convenience and equipment were there, such as mowers and tractors?

      Nitrate nitrate, of course, is fertilizer, but it is widely used as an explosive, since its supplies are not subject to sanctions - under the guise of fertilizer, it is delivered anywhere. That is, it is not hexogen with octagen, but it also explodes.

        In my opinion, Breivik used the same scheme.

          On July 22, 2011, a double terrorist attack was committed in Norway. First, an explosion occurred at a complex of government buildings in the center of the Norwegian capital Oslo, where the Prime Minister’s office is located. The power of the explosive device, according to experts, ranged from 400 to 700 kilograms of TNT. The explosives were planted in a Volkswagen Crafter, parked a few meters from the entrance to the Prime Minister’s office.

          As for the type of explosives used by Breivik, it is unclear. Judging by the evaluation of TNT equivalent (at least 400 kg), it was not ammonium nitrate. However, maybe nitrate, its TNT equivalent of 0,8, as Vika writes.

            I will not argue about the type of fertilizer, but I remember exactly that I read how he registered a farm to buy hundreds of kilograms of fertilizer without suspicion.

              Probably it is. Nitrate is very close to TNT in its explosive properties.

              Ammonium ammonium per liter is a rather weak explosive, but if you add aluminum powder to it, you get ammonal, an already stronger explosive, with an explosion that also develops high temperature.

    Turks, as always, resolve their issues. For them, the Kurds are terrorists, and the barmalei from the Idlib gadyushnik are brothers. And it is not surprising, because Erdogan's party - AKP - is the political Turkish wing of the Muslim Brotherhood (banned in Russia). And he himself, as an imam-khatib, is well versed in religious issues.
