The situation in Syria: Turkish armored vehicles are being transferred to Idlib, ISIS is attacking again

32

The ceasefire in Syria, which was not very carefully observed, which was based not so much on the Russian-Turkish agreements as the spread of coronavirus, which significantly reduced the activity of Ankara’s military contingents deployed in this country, is increasingly beginning to resemble the final phase of preparations for a new, an even more brutal round of confrontation. This is all the more obvious because in Syria the old and seemingly defeated enemy again declared himself.


We are talking about the recent attack by the militants of the Islamic State (banned in the Russian Federation) on the city of Es Sukhne in the province of Homs. The information that appeared about the seizure of this settlement turned out to be ultimately either an attempt to pass off wishful thinking, or simply by deliberate lie with American roots. Nevertheless, ISIS’s attempt to reassert itself is not worth discounting, especially in view of the fact that its fragments began to show activity in different frequent countries - for example, in the province of Deir ez-Zor, an explosion recently occurred at the entrance to the city of Al Qasra. The igilovites are justifiably suspected of committing a terrorist attack.

On the other hand, there are enough problems now without them. Established in the province of Idlib, albeit fragile, but peace, each side uses its own way. The Syrian army, for example, is engaged in mine clearance: the other day, its command reported that 1,7 hectares were cleared of explosive objects. The militants enthusiastically continue to both provoke the forces of the SAA and destroy each other. According to reports, in the region of Ras al Ain, a conflict between members of various pro-Turkish gangs that arose during looting and dividing the occupied houses of local residents turned into street battles that reached such intensity that the “allies” were forced to separate and calm down those who arrived urgently Turkish military.

However, the Turks are engaged in more serious affairs. There is information about the arrival in recent days to the territory of Idlib province of their new military convoys, which included armored vehicles, including Tanks. It also became known that the Turkish army was equipping new roadblocks in the province, in particular, in the area of ​​the M-4 highway near the village of Jannat Al-Kura. Apparently, Ankara will not abandon plans to further continue its expansion in this direction.

It should be noted that our army also does not sit idly by, responding adequately to the aggravating situation. After a recent IS outing and due to the clearly unhealthy activity of the Turkish military, the forces of the Russian military police in the north of Al-Hasaka province create 4 new strong points - in Al-Abush, Umm-Kaif, Abu Rasin and Zrkan.

Photos of the large landing ship "Saratov" of the Black Sea have been published on the Internet fleet Russia passing the Bosphorus. The appearance of this ship gave the Lebanese edition of Al-Masdar News an opportunity to put forward a version that it was deploying “150 tanks and armored personnel carriers intended for the Syrian army,” which, most likely, will be used for a new offensive in Idlib. I would like to correct my esteemed Lebanese colleagues: the Tapir class BDKs, to which the Saratov refers, do not have the carrying capacity sufficient to transport such an amount of armored vehicles. And it’s not at all clear on what basis the publication makes an assumption about tanks and armored personnel carriers on board the ship.

    Yes, the problem of logistics is in full growth. They are convoys, we are BDK. And build up is problematic. But the spoon is good for dinner, so even such help from the CAA is worth a lot.

      It would be interesting to find out where the militants of the forbidden state come from if, according to the statement of the President of the Russian Federation, we have defeated them 5 or 6 times and won or defeated and defeated them. Or is it not accurate?

        They change their names there like gloves .... Today ISIS, tomorrow ISIS, it all depends on the approaching whistle of bullets and shells overhead. I noticed that they change there several times a day .... In the morning, civilians, Turkish formations at lunch, and ISIS or other muck at night.

        It would be interesting if we knew that there was no question of victory over all the militants, it was a question of defeating ISIS as an organized entity that took over the functions of the state. But the remnants of the gangs previously included in ISIS, now destroy the troops of the SAA.

          I really apologize, but is it really me, colleague? hi
          If all the "peaceful" dehkans watched Russian TV around the clock, they would know that they were destroyed, and who did not destroy, they were banned. After all, the trouble of the geyrops and the states is that they do not watch the nightingale and Kiselyov, as well as the Slivosimonyan tank, otherwise they would be aware that they are already 20 years old when the kapets arrived.
          After all, these common truths are known to any krepysh from the city of Little Mnogoterperpetevsk.

    It seems the Turks go there seriously and for a long time.
    Oh and it will be difficult to throw them out of there

    The army, if it is introduced into the territory where the fighting is taking place, must fight, otherwise problems with discipline and a decrease in combat readiness will begin ... The Turks, it seems to me, are now just “rolling” back and forth with equipment, but this is not just being done - it’s still “training "in a combat situation on the transfer of troops, testing routes and ensuring security on the march. The purpose of these “exercises” is to introduce, at the right time, quickly and without loss the main “shock fist” if the Turks need to act more decisively.

      Or quickly and without loss take him away, if decisiveness is still not enough or it will be unacceptable.
      It’s interesting how they all didn’t guess to conduct their military exercises in neighboring countries, without their consent. Although what I mean, the teachings of Yugoslavia, Libya, Iraq

        Dear Alex. Take a close look - I put the word TEACHING in quotation marks ... Teaching in foreign countries is a widespread practice - joint NATO exercises, joint Chinese exercises ... Yes, and Russia does not stand aside ... And about Turkey, if you believe mass media wassat then the entire army of Turkey has already been entered into Syria. The media write only about the entry and rarely about the withdrawal of Turkish troops from Syria, but about the US army, on the contrary, it leaves everywhere - according to the media, but for some reason the number of American soldiers in the same Syria is not getting smaller what

          Dear Vitaliy, mind you, after the phrase “exercises in neighboring countries”, I indicated without consent from (countries). Therefore, the actions of Turkey can be called exclusively occupation, without any quotation marks. And he considered that the “teachings,” even in quotation marks, somewhat distort the essence of what is happening. Sorry if I misinterpreted your message

            Dear Alex. Exercises in the frontline both during the capture of Izmail by Suvorov and during the Second World War before strategic offensive operations are a natural necessity in order to reduce losses during military operations. But the Turks, Americans and K occupiers - I completely agree with you. True, they themselves for some reason do not consider themselves occupiers ??? Here we are in Afghanistan, although we entered there at the request of a legitimate government, but in our country many people believe that we were invaders there ...

    We do not need Syria. There is nothing to do there. Due to the failure of Putin’s entire oil and gas strategy, and the breakthrough of American LNG into Europe, Syria, as a potential transit corridor of Qatari gas, has lost its significance.
    If you need a frontier in the Mediterranean basin, then you just need to keep and defend your naval base in Tartus. Because otherwise Syria will turn into Vietnam. We will not be able to wage an imperial war over 3000km. Russia is weak, but there are no allies.
    It’s not too late to run. But Putin is likely not to back down. Americans and Turks too. Therefore, all this will last indefinitely, draining and bleeding Russia.

      Dear Vladislav, I agree with you on some points, but the fact that Russia is weak today is perceived as a personal insult. Russia is strong in the spirit and training of its soldiers, and in terms of weapons it is far from in the last rows. Here ask yourself the question: who is stronger - a muscular bodybuilder, but an impotent or a simple man, but a father of three children?

        Dear Vitaliy! Thanks for the comment. But you confuse concepts. Russia is weak primarily economically. War, dear thing. Energy prices, a pandemic, and mediocre leadership have all brought down our economies. We have nothing to fight. The authorities will select money from poor people. And for what? In order to satisfy Putin’s ambitions? Why do we need this war? For what purposes do we conduct it? Just do not need about the barmaley, the distant frontiers of the fight against international terrorism and other Peskovskaya crap. These words are a screen to cover true goals.

    Well, the fact that a handful of American Jews is pushing the Turks to war with Syria is not news, in fact, Israel is mainly fighting there as the main customer of Assad’s head; Turkey, as the main six Jews, and Saudi Arabia, the “prince state,” which, however, got stuck with the Husites, conducts this whole brotherhood of the United States; and there are some Isil of Anusr and other Mujahideen and Albanians and Alawites, and there were none — the Pashtuns in Afghanistan were also recruited in Pakistan, and the backbone was from Amer British officers who were paid out of Jewish pocket; unfortunately, we are still poorly engaged in "coups d'etat" and all sorts of "civil wars", but it would be necessary in central America and in Texas and California
