Syria, April 11: US relocates military equipment to Iraq from Iraq

16

The militants of radical organizations operating in Idlib continue to attack government forces and try to disrupt joint Russian-Turkish patrols. Against this background, the US army is transferring military equipment from Iraq to Syria.


The situation with the M4 highway in Idlib province was even forced to stop in her speech by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova. As you know, the militants of the Khayyat Tahrir ash-Sham organization banned in Russia do not stop provocative actions aimed at disrupting joint patrols of the highway and the surrounding areas. In addition, the HTS continues to attack the positions of the Syrian government forces.

In response to the militant sorties, the artillery divisions of the Syrian Arab army were forced to fire at the positions of radical groups in the area of ​​the villages of Kansafra and Al-Fatir in the province of Idlib. Provocations of militants took place during the day and in the province of Aleppo. Here, militants fired on positions of government troops in the area of ​​Al-Akib, Al-Malikiya, Biena, Deir Jamal, Ziyara and Shavarigat al-Arz settlements. As a result of the actions of pro-Turkish groups, a civilian was injured.

While illegal armed groups are shelling government forces, Turkey continues to build up its military presence in Idlib. Two Turkish convoys with engineering equipment and building materials again passed through the Kafr Lusin checkpoint in the northern part of Idlib province. Concrete blocks are intended for the construction of regular observation posts of the Turkish army in Idlib.

The number of these points is growing almost every day, which indicates Turkey’s unwillingness to withdraw its armed forces from the territory of Northern Syria in the foreseeable future. At present, 58 Turkish observation and checkpoints have already been built in Idlib, and there is no reason to believe that the process of building new Turkish posts will end.

As Turkey builds up a military presence in Idlib, the United States behaves similarly in Hasaka province. Despite repeated statements by US President Donald Trump that Washington wants to withdraw its troops from Syria, the Americans are not going to free the military base in Hasak. This is evidenced, for example, by the entry of the next American convoy in Hasaku. A convoy of US military equipment proceeded from neighboring Iraq, passing through the Syrian-Iraqi border to Hasaka province, in the direction of the US military base in Al-Shaddadi.

The purpose of the transfer of American troops to Hasaka province is not reported. But Syrian sources have certain speculations: it is possible that American forces are being transferred to the province in order to ensure the production of Syrian oil. As you know, the United States is not just illegally present in the territory of sovereign Syria, but also is exploiting natural resources, illegally extracting and exporting Syrian oil from the country. At the same time, US appetites are growing and Americans are only going to increase oil production in Syria.

In turn, the Turkish news agency Anadolu reports that Russia is building up its military presence in northeastern Syria. According to Turkish media, a convoy of Russian military equipment entered the province of Raqqa and went to the village of Kamyshly. Turkish analysts attribute the transfer of Russian troops to the buildup of an American military presence in Hasaka province.

In the province of Deir ez-Zor, the Syrian Arab army is successfully fighting the main evil - terrorist groups. So, in the desert of Badiya al-Sham, patrols were carried out in order to identify "sleeping" cells of the Islamic State organization banned in Russia. It is this group that is particularly active in Deir ez-Zor. For example, IS bombers detonated a bomb along the route of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) patrol, which are based on the formation of Kurdish militias.

In the province of Rakka, the main opponents of the Kurdish militia are Turkish-supported groups that attacked Kurdish positions south of Tel Rifat. In addition, the Turkish military reported the destruction of several activists of the Kurdistan Workers Party in Raqqa. Recall that this Kurdish party is recognized in Turkey as a terrorist organization.

Meanwhile, Nikolai Patrushev, Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, in his next speech spoke about the continuing high risks of the transfer of terrorists from Syria and Iraq to Russia. According to the Secretary of the Security Council, the defeats suffered by radical groups on Syrian soil force many militants to seek new countries to carry out their criminal activities.

    Why be surprised? The country of grabbers, arrogant and cheerful DB.
    At the same time, they are actively imposing their idea of ​​their nation as the saviors of mankind and of people in general, which is confirmed by half of the militants. At the same time they manage to blame someone else ...

    The Yankees will support the Kurds, in whose ranks some of the IGilovites have joined. In general, I will dirty (in my style) Syria with the Russian Federation, Turkey and Iraq.

      Isilovites joined the ranks of the Kurds? Do you even understand what you said? laughing
      They shoot each other at once, and without hesitation.
      Kurds are atheists, Marxists-Leninists, and igilovs are scumbags from Islam.

        In some places I agree with you. Kurds are a strong and independent people. But there were a lot of changes, and they lost faith in "" "USSR" "" "
        Fighters, by the way, are still those in hand-to-hand combat.

    As Turkey builds up a military presence in Idlib, the United States behaves similarly in Hasaka.

    Who will believe that this is an accident. Looks like undercover insults ended,
    The USA and Turkey are again in the same team against Syria. And most importantly, against the strengthening of Russia in BV. So early we relaxed, feeling like we were the full winners there, like - just a little pressure left in Idlib.
    Such warriors have a beginning, but no quick end. Today there are 4 points at once:
    Afghanistan, Syria, Donbass and Libya. Next in line is Venezuela.
    And to attack the DPRK and Iran - "and want, and pricks", not to mention Russia and China.

      hi
      What grudges are there? The wolf and the wolverine have the same goals - to stake out territory and gobble up everything that moves. So far, the US and Turkey "devour" different things - the Americans are oil, the Turks are Kurds with an eye to oil. If the US plans to rob and "make legs", then Turkey's "Wishlist" is longer - to gnaw off the northern territories of Syria.

      This idyll is spoiled by one question - the Kurdish one. Turks blow against Kurds, and mattresses blow for Kurds, incl. they are unlikely to be in the same team. By the way, the Kurds no longer really like the fact that the Americans do not even try to hide the fact that they are using them exclusively for one purpose - using oil in their own interests and have not "stimulated" their dream of an independent Kurdistan for a long time. At the same time, the Kurds understand that the Turks are not only their enemies, but also the enemies of Damascus, and in the event of intensified hostilities against the Kurds, mattresses for them, against Ankara, will not be harnessed, which makes the Kurds think about the value of this "asset" as ally. If the Turks hack to death with the Kurds, then it is quite possible that the Kurds will join forces with the CAA and begin to create problems for the Americans, not only in Syria, but also in Iraq, where the Sha'abists, supported by Iran, can actively join such a good cause.

      Hardly relaxed, but probably in vain went to meet Erdogan and agreed to stop the advance of the SAA and a truce.

    The invaders are impudent before our eyes.
    True, I have a question: why are all these "extremist groups" called that? Wouldn't it be better to go back to honest style. Occupant - Occupant, "extremist" - a bandit, "extremist organization" what-where-why "is a gang of bandits. And chop bandits into mince

    You can blame me for death, but it seems to me that Putin is not pulling the war in Syria anymore and is slowly draining it into a Turkish hysteria.
