Ambush for RPK sabotage group: Turkish special forces raided northern Syria

Kurdish statements that the United States and Russia should influence Turkey did not have a proper impact from the Kurdish point of view, from the Kurdish point of view. The Turkish army raided using special forces.


The report of the Ministry of Defense of the country refers to the elimination of 4 terrorists. Recall that by terrorists in Syria and Iraq, Ankara means representatives of the armed wing of the Kurdistan Workers' Party.

It is reported that the "PKK terrorists" themselves attempted to infiltrate territory controlled by Turkish troops in the north of the Syrian Arab Republic. As a result, the Turkish special forces advanced towards the sabotage group, having received intelligence. An ambush was organized, and the Kurdish detachment was eventually liquidated. The total number of sabotage groups is not given.

It must be noted that the Turkish army has recently practically reduced to zero the attacks of armed PKK groups on its own territory. The formations of the Kurdistan Workers Party are moved farther from the Turkish border - deeper into Syrian territory.

Meanwhile, Russian and Turkish servicemen conducted another joint patrol of the M4 highway, sections of which in Idlib had previously been controlled by militants. The patrol area is the road between the settlements of Serakib (under the control of the SAA) and Ariha (under the control of the Turkish military and the militants "Hayat Tahrir al-Sham" (banned in the Russian Federation).



Also, the Russian military police patrolled in the north of Syria - east of the city of Ras al-Ain. This time there were no excesses associated with a "meeting" with the US military, recently quite often blocking the way for Russian troops.

      when does godfather need it.

      Exactly ... Kurds over the past few decades have become a playing card in the hands of some countries ... all the interested forces in the region use them, and then throw them to their own devices ... Alas, the Kurdish political leaders themselves are to blame for this

        Kurds have always been a bargaining chip for pressure on Turkey. Not only recently. Like Tibet and Uighurs for China, the Caucasus for Russia, etc. Here's what interests me, an expensive military operation and only 4 action movies ... But was the game worth the candle?

          Well, given the fact that just a couple of days ago the same sabotage group blew up gasoline in the city of Afrin in a crowded place where 43 civilians were killed, I think that it cost a candle

    Помимо борьбы с курдами на севере и северо-востоке Сирии турки стремятся установить контроль над Идлибом, где плотно обосновались "бородатые", выпестованные самими турками. Но Турция не учла предупреждений России о том, что террориста нельзя приручить, его можно и нужно только уничтожить. И вот результатом турецких заигрываний стали боестолкновения турков с идлибской версией ИГИЛ. В общем турки перешли к полномасштабной войне на чужой территории.

      But Turkey did not take into account Russia's warnings that a terrorist cannot be tamed, it can and should only be destroyed. And the result of Turkish flirting was the clashes between the Turks and the Idlib version of ISIS. In general, the Turks switched to a full-scale war on foreign territory.

      I also think that Erdogan is stuck in this intrigue and tightly Leo .. hi
      And you can’t leave and it’s also scary to attack .. Losses are coming! And let the Kurds complain to their US masters .. Russia-Syria at the beginning of the operation offered cooperation and even autonomy, but they sold out and here is the result ..

    In Syrian Afrin, a serious terrorist attack ... in the thick of cars in the city blew up IEDs ... 40 dead ... who needed it ... is incomprehensible.

      Well, barmaley always where death and fear acted like this was their tactic .. Remember before Russia what they did in the BV? Almost every day, someone was cutting their heads, blew up .. It is useless to negotiate with them only to destroy, that Russia very well thinned them and even more ..

    That's boring. After all, I have deciphered the PKK as a Russian Orthodox denomination.

    На сей раз обошлось без эксцессов, связанных со "встречей" с американскими военными, в последнее время нередко преграждающими путь российским военнослужащим.
    Recently a mattress patrol snatched out in Deir Es Zora - two were missing. request
    The official version is the attack of the forbidden barmaley. request

    Turkey will be one of the pillars of the future Eurasian space, so we should not play the Kurdish card. We have great prospects for cooperation.

    Даже не знаешь, как относится не к самой новости, а к тому, что об этом мы читаем на нашем ВО! Надо отучать "партнёров" от этих встреч, только вот каким образом - непонятно!
