Intensified shelling: Turkish artillery launched a series of attacks on the territories of northern Syria

In northern Syria, fighting is intensifying between pro-Turkish and Kurdish militias. In recent hours, news has been received that the Turkish army has again intervened, inflicting several strikes on Kurdish positions in different parts of the country.


In particular, Turkish artillery struck the suburbs of Ain Issa. Recall that in this city in the north of the Syrian province of Raqqa, a post of the Russian military police was previously located. This deployment took place at the request of the Kurdish administration. Representatives of this administration noted that the presence of the Russian military would lead to the fact that Turkish troops and pro-Turkish armed formations would stop shelling the city and its environs.

After the deployment of a Russian observation post, Turkish troops are not shelling Ain Issa itself, but at the same time they are striking the northern and eastern suburbs of this city with a predominantly Kurdish population.

In connection with the shelling of the M4 highway by the Turks, the Russian military blocked the traffic for civilian vehicles for security reasons. A few hours ago, traffic on the road connecting the east of the SAR with Aleppo was restored. However, then reports began to arrive about the resumption of Turkish military activity.

Against this background, it is reported about the use of Turkish artillery in the area of ​​the city of Manbij (Aleppo province). Within half an hour, Turkish troops fired at least 35 ammunition in the vicinity of Manbij, where Kurdish armed groups are located. The Turks also fired on another city in northern Syria - Tal Rifat, which is currently under Kurdish control.

    The Turks' hands are itching to build some kind of provocation against our military police, but when in the end they get snot, they'll drown us, and then we are for sho. I think that the answer will be - for the cause.

      It's not about provocations, it's just how they beat the Kurds, and they continue. The enemy, he is the enemy.

        Erdi doesn't really care about the Russian presence. Well, we sat down at the post in the city, because the city can be bypassed.
        Erdi is not too afraid of a response from Russia. As long as the country in its policy takes into account, first of all, the interests of the oligarchy, you can shoot its ambassadors and shoot down planes - they will endure everything, as long as gas rushes through the pipe.

          Well, the Russian economy will not pull military action against another NATO member state, since the flow of funds from the sale of oil and gas will be immediately blocked.

            Naturally, but there are other methods of influence. By the way, NATO will intervene only if a large-scale aggression is undertaken against Turkey, as a state - it is quite possible to spread rot Turks outside Turkey and other NATO member countries, but this will not happen either, because South Stream ...
            Well, at least they dared to press down Turkish and Ay-Zer tomatoes again in December, and again under plausible pretexts of allegedly detecting mold and pests. Here is the superpower's strategic response! lol

              Do you think the Turks cannot do without our gas? Russia will not be able to do this if revenues from the sale of oil and gas cease to flow. And there are quite a few people willing to replace Russia as an importer.

            The oligarch is with everything, because it rules. Oligarchy is the power of a "group of comrades", that is, the oligy. And under the oligarchy, FIRST OF ALL OTHERS, the interests of the members of this "group of comrades" and those close to them are taken into account. One of the two main owners of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline is Gazprom. After that, is it any wonder that the Turks can do almost anything, constantly having such a trump card in their hands as the transit of gas through this pipeline through their territory?

              It is not necessary to pull by the ears what is not even close. Of course, I understand that oligarchs and tomatoes are your favorite topic, but I have never heard from anyone that, according to the agreement reached with the Kurds, we undertake to destroy Turkish firing points from which Kurdish positions are fired, and since we are not obliged to do this , then there is nothing to show a stupid initiative and risk the lives of our military.

                  It's one thing when the military helps in the fight against terrorists, but this seems to you not enough and you still want to harness them into civil strife, where our interests do not exist at all. We are NOT OBLIGED to suppress the Turkish positions from which the Kurds are being fired. Why do you want our military to be attached to this case? And you pretend that you feel sorry for our military ...

That's when, in your opinion, and after what events, the Turks will still get snot: for our pilot, for our ambassador, for our other guys, including those killed by extremists supported by Turks, for chopped off from our allied (de facto) Syria territory, for the loss of our geopolitical positions in the Caucasus, Libya, etc., etc.? When? And what else needs to happen for this to finally happen?

      I repeat - there are no Kurds. There are clans.

      When the Afri people were finally decided, the Kurds in Hassek and Kamyshly communicated normally with the Turks and even conducted trade. And no one provided any real help to the Afrians.

      When the Tel Abyatskys were killed, others said how it was possible, but they did not send help. Now, if the Vanka don't hurt, then the Ainiskis will also be allowed into the minced meat, and other Kurds will condemn the maximum.

And now it has suddenly become profitable for us. Analytics, straight, for all the first four letters of this word.

    It is completely unclear where and what the Kurds from Turkey are doing ??? Or have they all already moved to northern Syria? Where is their recently widely known Kurdish Workers' Party for its struggle inside Turkey? Did Erdogan clean them up so thoroughly?
