Erdogan threatens to “fight back” Damascus in Idlib province

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan accused official Damascus of "intensifying aggression" in the Syrian province of Idlib and threatened with "retaliatory measures." This is written by the Turkish media.


According to Erdogan, the Syrian government’s army “intensified aggression” in Idlib. In response, Turkey "will fight back", but at the same time remain committed to the agreements reached in early March this year with Russia to resolve the situation in the province and ceasefire.

The regime intensified aggression in Idlib. If the regime continues to do so, it will pay for it with very serious losses.

- said the Turkish leader, adding that he "does not intend to tolerate the actions of dubious organizations" committing provocations and violating the ceasefire.

In turn, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad accused Erdogan of assaulting Syrian sovereignty. According to him, Turkey occupied the northern regions of Syria and increased the number of observation posts there, which are actually military bases.

Against this background, the Syrian media reported that government forces inflicted a blow on the positions of terrorists from the Jebhat al-Nusra group, banned in Russia. According to reports, the positions of terrorists in the vicinity of the city of Afis in the province of Idlib were subjected to rocket and artillery attack. In addition, Syrian artillery attacked militant bases from the Turkestan Islamic Party, which mainly includes Uyghur mercenaries.

        he didn’t get lightning war.

        Well, this is how to look. The Turks staked out there and now it will be very difficult to drive them out.
        They are very sick with the Ottoman Empire.
        And saw off the Syrian territory for the first time.
        After the First World War, new states arose on the ruins of the Ottoman Empire. Including Turkey - sort of like the heiress of the Brilliant Port, but not quite. Independent Syria was formed south of it. Not entirely, however, independent - before World War II, it was under the mandate of France.
        18 years after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, Turkey decided to regain at least part of the lost land. She filed a complaint to the League of Nations (then the UN counterpart) that, in fact, the so-called Syrian Sanjak Alexandretta should belong to her - for historical reasons, well, because many Turks live there.
        The complaint was composed correctly - Atatürk, the head of Turkey even came up with a new name for this territory. In his opinion, the Alexandretta Sanjak should have been called the Hatay Republic. Various organizations immediately appeared in the sanjak with the slogans “Freedom to Khatai”, etc.
        The League of Nations made a Solomon decision - let this your Hatay gain autonomy within Syria. The operation was completed very quickly. Representatives of Turkey, France, Great Britain, as well as Belgium and the Netherlands wrote a constitution for the new republic.

        And two years later, the autonomous republic of Hatay decided to secede from Syria. September 2, 1938 she proclaimed independence and began to rapidly Turkize. Six months later, a separate decree of the authorities of the self-proclaimed republic announced that Turkish laws were in force on the territory of the state. A month later, the Turkish lira becomes the state currency. Three months later, Turkey annexed Hatay to her.

        Doesn’t resemble anything? Almost a hundred years have passed, and the schemes are almost the same.

          There is a risk, and a big one, but Russia in Syria has not temporarily and permanently strengthened. And most importantly, legally! The population does not throw stones at us, as in Turks and other arrogant Saxons ..
          One must hope that we will squeeze them out sooner or later and peace will be established in the BV!

            Right now, I’ll say the seditious thing - Russia is absolutely zero on the territory of Syria, for Russia the main thing is that there are no barmales there who could be exported to us through NATO, as it was in Chechnya, but this requires order on an accountable territory and, in principle, not it is important who specifically will provide it.
            Obviously, the Turks cannot provide it, and the Americans generally need the opposite in the whole of Syria, the Kurds still have a booty there - control is also needed over them.
            If Erdogan Barmaleev removed in his area of ​​responsibility, then he would have consolidated himself there without any special efforts, because Syria can not oppose him, and Russia is already so normal.
            However, the Sultan, on the contrary, relies on bearded swooning and therefore he is not a good person.

                  Yes, I remember in the direction of Turkey, solid oil caravans marched on and from there the militants rested and armed .. And then the columns began to bomb our VKS, etc. But you know the sequence. Until Erdogan was almost soaked and then calmed down, now he began to greyhound again. The East is a delicate matter!

              And here I agree with you, the integrity of Syria is conditional, the Turkish and Kurdish parts can return to Damascus’s control only with a very strong central authority, which is not expected in the near future. Therefore, they will be controlled by other players; Turkey, the USA, and possibly gradually Russia, squeezing the first two.
              Initially, it looked like Turks in the northwest in Idlib, the United States in Kurdistan, the Russian Federation in the center of Syria .. and everyone is happy ... but ... did not grow together

        Erdogan is not limited to Syria, he has few Iraqi territories - he transferred his aviation to Libya, from 16 to 18 F-16. This is after the Hawtor arranged the drone fall of Turkish drones with the help of the "Shell-S1E", up to 28 downed drones, including drums.
        The phantom pains of the Ottoman Empire torment ... He will play this out until the creation of a regional anti-Turkish coalition with Syria, Libya and Egypt at the head.

    Judging by the Turkish preparations, they want to conduct a very large-scale combined-arms operation. I think Erdoогan decided everything with amers. The agreed goal is to defeat the combat-ready units of the SAA, which will make it possible to start all over again within the framework of the next "peaceful revolution" for the Syrian people. Well, the second, more interesting amer, is our defeat in a humiliating form. And all this against the background of the fact that the Turks will not climb into Syrian airspace, but will be massed from their territory until the complete destruction of the SAR Air Force and its air defense. And no one will answer them until they cross the air border. Otherwise - the Bosphorus will shut ... Not our trump cards there.

    Apparently the Turks completed the transfer of reserves and the preparation of the operation.
    It is interesting - did the Turks solve the logical impasse with a drone and firing from observation posts attacking the ATS? Or they will - send drones under the prepared air defense system and send forward a "salad" and their special forces, and carry out the art themselves. support?

    threatened with "retaliatory measures"
    So Erdogan is constantly throwing threats and at the same time is on foreign territory. Maybe it’s better to at least quench your ambition and stop helping militants, whom he affectionately calls “moderate opposition”? Silent grabbed part of Syrian territory and now in the style of trump ("he will pay for it with very serious losses") is threatening.

    Imagine only that in my territory a neighbor will begin to give me “pointers” to give out what and how to do. And if I do it not according to him, I will threaten with “retaliatory measures”!

      This year, the coronavirus has made irrelevant issues with tourists, and with tomatoes (due to the depreciation of the ruble), it may also have reset.
      Well, in general, everything that happens (cataclysm) in the world economy is a very suitable background for starting a whole series of wars, and what can I say about Idlib.
      At all times, overcoming large economic crises took place through wars. Some states weakened, and more powerful ones solved their problems at their expense.
      The presence of WMD makes a direct clash of powers possessing such weapons unlikely, but it is precisely this fact that is pushing for the clarification of relations on the territory of other states and, if possible, at the hands of their satellites.
      So, aggravation of conflicts around the world can be expected. hi

    Syrian artillery attacked militant bases from the Turkestan Islamic Party, which mainly includes Uyghur mercenaries.

    Maybe help from the Chinese in this charitable deed was worth asking for help formally, otherwise the Syrians are engaged in a purely Chinese affair - they are disposing of the Uyghurs.
