Turkish artillery attacked Syrian army units in northwestern Syria

54

Syrian information service NPA publishes data on an incident in northern Syria. The material reports that the Turkish artillery attacked the positions of the Syrian government forces (SAA) west of the city of Aleppo - in northwestern Syria.


The report says that Turkish troops opened fire after several SAA units attempted to enter positions in the Zaviya mountain range. These territories are now under the control of the Turkish military, who, in the course of several operations in the north of the Syrian Arab Republic, have created an extensive buffer zone.

Artillery fire reportedly "covered" the SAA units in Aleppo and Idlib provinces. This shelling stopped the advance of government forces. According to the latest information, the SAA units suffered significant losses. Moreover, specific figures of losses were not named.

At the same time, it is reported about the strengthening of the Turkish positions in the south of the province of Idlib. According to the latest information, the number of the Turkish contingent in this province of the SAR alone has reached 12 thousand troops. In the same province, the Turks transferred up to 9 thousand units of various military equipment, including infantry fighting vehicles and army trucks. Moreover, this technique is also used by the armed formations controlled by Turkey.

Earlier it was reported that pro-Turkish militants tried to take control of a section of the M4 highway in the north of the country. However, "unknown detachments" struck at the positions of the Turkish military and the formations under their control in the area of ​​the city of Azaz in the Aleppo province.

    Let me explain the tactical features of warfare by the Turks. They do not apply the ingrained idea among Russians about a total infantry offensive with the capture of fortifications and territory. On the contrary, the infantry is generally not used to capture territory. With the help of reconnaissance (satellite / aero), the location of combat communications is determined, which fire with artillery and aviation and, after the defenders flee, occupy the infantry under the cover of technology and make a strong point. Aviation and artillery iron the next area and the infantry moves again, and so on.

      But in this particular case, there is no question of using and advancing infantry to capture and hold territory.
      The blow, on the contrary, was inflicted by the Turks in order to prevent the emerging advance of the SAA forces.

          But this is an interesting logic: one can bomb on someone else's territory from one's own territory, while others can be answered in the same way in no case!
          In fact, the habitual "law of power" is at work here - there is power, you can answer in such a way that any desire to encroach on someone else's will disappear, if not forever, then for a very long time. No power - all that remains is to “express concern”. Alas.

    The Sultan decided that this Syrian territory is no longer Syrian, but Turkish, judging by his actions! Syria will not be able to butt the Turks for their lands for a long time. One of the most fertile lands in Syria, by the way!

          The fact is that the issue of squeezing out the Turkish forces is extremely extended in time. At the moment, a consolidated effort is planned to deplete Turkey's own ability to continue active hostilities. Of course, a direct onslaught using all possible means cannot solve this issue at once, since it will lead to various negative consequences, including for Russia. At the same time, with multidirectional influences from the Kurdish militia, in the north of Syria, the Khavtar army, in Libya, the SAA along the front, as well as some other forces, in other areas, including political and economic, there is a gradual "shaking" of the prevailing circumstances ... The most optimistic forecast for the withdrawal of Turkish forces from the above regions is in the period 2023-2025.

Firstly, their ground contingent is clearly larger, and secondly, the Yankees can intervene - not in the sense against us or for the Turks, but purely, like, a war with terrorists - air and missile strikes on Syrian territory in front of us.

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan issued an ultimatum demanded that Damascus withdraw its troops in Idlib province from Turkish observation posts. If the Syrian soldiers do not do this, the Turkish army will expel them itself, Erdogan said.

    08.02.2020
    Ankara has transferred 30 units of military equipment to Idlib province, where the Syrian army is advancing on the rebels.

    10.02.2020.
    The Turkish Armed Forces struck 115 targets of the Syrian government army, killing at least 101 soldiers. This was reported by the Turkish Ministry of National Defense.

    According to him, the incident was a response to the shelling by the Syrian government forces in the province of Idlib, which killed five Turkish soldiers and injured five more.

    The Turkish army also destroyed three tanks, two artillery mounts, and shot down one Syrian Air Force helicopter. The Turkish Defense Ministry argues that it is about the exercise of the "right to self-defense." "The blood of our fallen fighters will not remain unrevenged," the statement said.


    There was no reaction to direct attacks by Turkey on Assad's army 10 months ago, and there will not be now.
    No direct confrontation is expected from the Russian Federation. Perhaps because of the danger of the pro-Iranian component joining the hostilities. It will be very difficult to separate them later. Most likely, some kind of overt and secret diplomatic steps will be taken to prevent a further escalation of the military conflict. hi

    I would very much like such a scenario, but today there are so many means of observation that it will not be possible to deliver any powerful blow uncontrollably, unfortunately!

    it is possible and open. Ours don't know how to work with media, and this is a big minus. Now it would be necessary to raise a cry that Russian soldiers were injured during the shelling with artillery. Show fake documents such as a major or colonel, a lieutenant, former military advisers and so on died. and to make a serious warning to begin with, like when Gerasimov warned the striped that if Russian soldiers were injured, a blow would be struck. And you can burn without warning when the media base has been created to prove the opposite to the Turks would have been impossible. In the media space, you have to lie if that lie allows you to achieve a favorable position. Far-fetched reasons and all that. The striped ones do it all the time, shake the test tubes with detergent at the camera and then hit them and IT WORKS! and for some reason in our media space it is customary only to make excuses and express regrets and concerns
