Middle Eastern press announced the intensification of the withdrawal of Turkish troops from the north of Syria and the encirclement of 8 Turkish posts

38

There are reports from Syria that several military columns of the Turkish army have left the north of the Syrian Arab Republic in the past few days. At the same time, it is noted that we are not talking about the rotational replacement of the contingent, since no one arrives to replace the departing military personnel for at least 5 days.


In particular, it is pointed to the evacuation of the personnel of the so-called observation post near the city of Ain Issa. This attracts special attention due to the fact that a couple of weeks ago there was information about the appeal of representatives of the Kurdish administration to the Russian military with a request to create a Russian checkpoint in the Ain Issa area. Before that, for quite a long time, the Kurds accused the pro-Turkish groups of shelling the city and its environs.

According to Middle Eastern media reports, the Russian military offered the Kurds to hold talks with official Damascus. The specific results of these negotiations were not reported, but here are the testimonies of local residents that the Turkish military left the observation post near Ain Issa, as well as that the SAA (troops of the 93rd brigade) was located just a couple of kilometers from the city, they say about much.

The Al-Arab news service, meanwhile, reports that a total of 8 out of 12 Turkish posts in the north of the SAR are now "surrounded by the Syrian government army, pro-Iranian or Kurdish militias."

Just a few minutes ago, information came from the Ain Issa area about the outbreak of fighting between the Turkish forces and the armed wing of the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF - Kurdish formations).


The battle takes place in the area of ​​the village of Musharif, east of Ain Issa. The number of dead and wounded on both sides has not yet been reported.

Ahval Information Service:

Turkey is stepping up the withdrawal of troops from the north of Syria, as in connection with the Kurdish attacks, the situation of the Turkish contingent is becoming more difficult, and in some areas it is generally unacceptable.

On this background come news that on the eve of the US military base in the north of the province of Deir ez-Zor was subjected to a missile strike. This base is located in the area of ​​the oil fields of El-Omar. Four rockets fired from a rocket launcher exploded on the territory of a military facility. After that, the US military began a military operation in the area of ​​the military base. The operation is positioned as "stripping measures in dangerous areas."

    I like Pashinyan more and more! Until then, Russia and Turkey made a hike, an exchange of political victories. Russia and the Armenians made progress in Syria as well. The Turks have a small victorious war.

      And what did you decide to build in Turan in another place?

            and immediately take up Iran.
            Not immediately, far from immediately. But the pieces on the board are lining up, all sorts of castling are going on, in Syria they were pushed half a leg. This is exactly how I see that the next attempt is Iran, what else can the Turks do in Azerbaijan? Poor Armenia is completely unnecessary for them.

              Here they sniffed with the British, it was not for nothing that the head of MI6 often visited the Turks. At the victory parade in Baku, Erdogan read an excerpt from the poem that the land of the Azerbaijanis lies south of the Araks, and those Azerbaijanis now have support (Turkey).
              Iran was enraged by this. And this is the East, here and for much less they are torn to shreds ... and now we see a retaliatory move in Syria - pro-Iranian formations and the SAA are carrying out the elimination of the Turkish presence in northern Syria.
              And apparently this is just the beginning.
              It looks like we are really waiting for the series of the Iranian-Turanian war.

            Iran is a very national country. Azeiborjanians live in the north. This is what South Azeyborjan is called. The question is different - does Iran need Great Turan?

          Well, this is such a tricky way that I somehow can't believe in it at all. For all its "independence" Turkey is a member of NATO, which has no common interests with the Russian Federation.

            I don’t know what about the "wiser" one, but the result of all this movement was that the Russian Federation introduced its contingent of up to 2500 people for a period of 5 years, apparently with the subsequent prolongation of the agreement. I'm not saying that this became possible as a result of behind-the-scenes agreements, but the activity of the Turks in this conflict unwittingly contributed to this, despite the fact that Turkey did not get what it wanted in full measure. The introduction of the peacekeeping contingent changed the scenario of the post-war organization and control over this territory and now it is necessary to negotiate. I do not assert, but I assume that the movement of the Turks in Syria is somehow connected with these agreements and is aimed at helping to legitimize Turkish interests in the Azerbaijani-Karabakh affairs.

            This is controversial. At least both Ankara and the Kremlin have a common interest in reducing US influence in the region. Turkey's NATO membership did not prevent mattresses from flirting with the Kurds and supplying them with weapons, which for Ankara is the sickle that looms in the immediate vicinity of the Faberge, incl. here Ankara is closer to Moscow than to Washington.

    Turkey steps up the withdrawal of troops from northern Syria
    It started to get hot and some agreements were obviously reached with the Russian side. It was not in vain that the Kurds turned to our military for help and, at their request, held talks with the Syrians. The fact that the Turks are leaving is certainly good, but they certainly will not leave Syria completely. It is also encouraging that the Americans began to periodically harass them with shelling. And then they climbed into the territory of a foreign state, and even took control of the oil-bearing regions. In general, these people need to be squeezed out of Syria by all available methods.
