"On the plain, they could be easy targets for ATGMs" - the network comments on the entry of Turkish tanks into northern Syria

Reports come from Syria that in the north of the country, pro-Turkish armed formations have increased the intensity of shelling of the city of Ain Issa and its eastern environs. Kurdish news sources report that the attacks are being carried out with the assistance of the Turkish military.


In materials published by the Kurdish administration of the region, it is claimed that a convoy of Turkish troops with several units of armored vehicles, including Tanks and the BMP entered Syrian territory near the city of Serekaniyye (Ras al-Ain). Several months ago, Turkish troops created a kind of buffer zone in the area, after which Serekaniyye was forced to leave hundreds of members of the Kurdish population.

It is stated that the pro-Turkish armed formations are trying to take control of a section of a strategically important highway from Ain Issa to Tal Tamra in northern Syria. This road connects Aleppo with the eastern Syrian territories, right up to the border with Iraq and Turkey.



Meanwhile, it is noted that earlier Kurdish units tried to prevent Turkish military traffic in the Serekaniye area. According to some reports, the Turks defused a powerful explosive device on the road towards Tal-Tamr. In the comments to the materials on the network about the entry of Turkish tanks into the north of Syria, it is said that "on the plain, they could become easy targets for ATGM - anti-tank missiles." But, apparently, the military column on its way did not meet any resistance from the Kurdish armed groups.

    The Turks were convinced of the effectiveness of their UAVs against mediocre air defense, so why not use them as cover for columns in the absence of air defense? It will be difficult to set up ambushes on the plain in such conditions.

      Quite right, earlier with ATGM they destroyed several tanks, but they could not understand where they were shooting from.

        I always believed that:
        1. It is much more convenient to arrange ambushes on rough terrain (in the mountains or in the forest) than in an "open field";
        2. An ATGM shot unmasks the position very well.
        Although what to take from the "expert opinion" of "netizens".

      Perhaps the UAV scouts and accompany, although-

      Yes, and even against a tank column, well, they will knock a couple, and the rest of the entire district will be razed to the ground ...

    Increasingly, articles on VO are accompanied by commentators from Internet users. Moreover, almost as experts.
    Interestingly, and my comments are also "presented" anywhere?
    However, mine is unlikely. My controversial ones.
    Well, maybe at least our best commentators are quoted?)))

      I found my comments (under a different nickname, which I have not
      use) in the form of links on other sites.
      Although I am never an expert - an ordinary amateur blogger.
      It's funny. laughing And shows how the Internet works.

    It will be much more difficult for irregular units, "partisans", to fight against well-equipped, regular army units ....
    They will look for appropriate countermeasures, develop new tactics!
    I do not believe that someone will leave them without qualified, highly technological help ... because "freedom fighters", as a rule, are someone's creature from the "big uncles" !!!
    Let's see how it goes.

        The Sultan has both debts and "sworn friends" enough.
        Not all of them are very advanced, it is essential to help the "partisans", but there will be such people. However, there are enough BABOSIKI, sometimes they work wonders.

    Network commentators are not familiar with the concept of "combat support", which allows fighting hamsters to press on the keyboard. smile

    According to reports from various sides in Syria, Turkish troops are moving away from somewhere, then entering somewhere. So understand who, where and why.
    "On the plains, they could be easy targets for ATGMs."
    If only, if only. But if the Turks did not enter Syria at all, how would the pro-Turkish formations feel?
