Turkish military activity in Syria intensifies: new post in Idlib and shelling of suburbs of Ain Issa

From Syria, there are reports of new shelling of the eastern suburbs of Ain Issa. The shelling is reportedly carried out by Turkish forces and the militias under their control. This information attracts special attention due to the fact that some time ago there were published data on the transfer of the Russian military to Ain Issa and the creation of a Russian observation post there.


Reportedly, Ain Issu itself, where a Russian observation post, according to some sources, has been formed, is not fired by Turks and militants of the so-called "Free Syrian Army", but strikes are being made on Mushairif, an eastern suburb adjacent to the M4 highway. There, the Turkish contingent will be opposed by the armed detachments of the Kurds.

Against this background, data on an increase in the level of activity of the Turkish military in Idlib province are confirmed. According to the latest information, the Turkish military contingent decided to create a post in close proximity to the positions of the Syrian government army (SAA) in the eastern part of the province. A report from Syria says that a post with armored vehicles is being set up by the Turkish military in the village of Kadura, north of the city of Maaret al-Nuuman.


The new post of the Turkish army will be located a couple of kilometers from the strategically important M5 highway. It goes from Seraqib to the south of the country - to Damascus.

This marks the tactics of the Turkish troops in Syria. They are trying to strengthen their presence in those areas that are strategically important. If in Idlib the M5 highway and the "junction" city of Serakib are important, then in the north the Turks and pro-Turkish armed formations are trying to gain control over the equally important road - M4. It connects the east of Syria from the border with Iraq with the largest city in the SAR - Aleppo.

    It looks like the Kurds will be pushed to the idea that it is time to decide ... proud, independent, and probably dead or an option with different perspectives.

      In retrospect, the entire M5 highway was blocked by Turkish "proxies" ... And the material is presented as if the Turks were advancing ... not at all. they crawl away, clinging to bumps and villages. Snapping and nibbling ...

      There are no Kurds, there are chieftains. When the Afriskys were slaughtered - in Kobani, Tel Abyad, Ain Issa, Kamyshly, Hasak, everyone sat and did nothing. Well, some of them also sold petroleum, agricultural and other goods to the north.

      When they came for Tel Abyad. In Kobani, Kamyshly, Menbidzhe they tensed, but of course they did not fight for the brothers.

      Now, if the Russis do not touch the Ain-Issky farm, they will eat it too. Other Kurds will definitely not fight for him. Only Ivans.

      But he, in general, has no choice: only permanent expansion allows him to explain to the people why there are a lot of problems in the economy and at the same time Erdi is growing more and more firmly in the chair of the head of state.

    Nearly 10000 residents have fled the northern Syrian city of Ain Issa, fearing an attack by militants from the Turkish-backed Syrian People's Army. The settlement, controlled by Kurdish self-defense units, has been under artillery fire for several days.

    The fighters of the Syrian Democratic Forces played a key role in the liberation of northern Syria from the "Islamic State". Official Ankara considers the SDF an offshoot of the Kurdistan Workers' Party, which is recognized as a terrorist group by Turkey, the United States and the European Union.

    The SDS press service notes that clashes flared up in the area from time to time, but they have intensified noticeably since December 18. According to the Kurdish side, the Turks are trying to cut the strategic M4 highway.



    The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights notes that the situation remains unclear. She does not exclude that the Kurdish militias will leave the settlement and hand it over to pro-Turkish formations in order to save the population.

    It will be shitty for the Kurds until they figure out what they need. Until they understand that they are another tool
