A split in the ranks of the pro-Turkish armed opposition in Syria: not everyone wants to attack the positions of the SAA

13

From Syria, there are reports of a split in the ranks of the pro-Turkish armed opposition. The subject of the dispute was the question of the offensive in the territories occupied by the Syrian government army. But not everyone wants to attack ...


Relatively moderate forces of pro-Turkish militants believe that the offensive should be postponed or abandoned altogether, but more radical field commanders are pushing for a consolidated military operation against the SAA in the near future.

At the same time, it became known exactly where the militants are going to strike a possible blow on the positions of Assad's troops.

It is indicated that the chosen direction is the north of Syria: El-Bab - Tadif. Today, El-Bab is controlled by the formations of the so-called "Syrian Free Army" and Turkish troops, while Tadif is under the control of the Syrian government forces. The strategically important M4 road passes between these settlements, which connects the eastern regions of the Syrian Arab Republic with the city of Aleppo.



The militants are hatching plans to push back the SAA troops up to the Rasm Abud airfield, located east of Aleppo.

Middle Eastern observer Khalid al-Khatib writes that in order to legitimize a possible resumption of hostilities against the SAA, the militants said that the offensive was being prepared by government troops "with the support of the Russian army." This statement was made by one of the leaders of the so-called political bureau of the "Syrian Free Army" Mustafa Sejari.

Moreover, this Sejari called on the international community "to take measures to provide military assistance to prevent aggression against El-Bab." His call was received by other detachments of armed "oppositionists". But many of them, realizing how all this could end for them, said that it was better to refuse the operation for now. Sejari accused the "refuseniks" of treason.

    Considering that the Russian Aerospace Forces began to regularly throw not candy in that direction ... the reason for the "split" is understandable. We need to continue, bomb the pro-Turkish opposition - until complete destruction or withdrawal from Syria.

      Sure. But I now have the feeling that the war in Syria is taking on a positional character and both sides are unable to deliver a crushing blow to their enemy in order to either reach the Syrian-Turkish border or force the Syrian troops to retreat from their current positions.
      Of course, the Russian Aerospace Forces can continue ironing the holes of the bandits, but without a ground operation, success cannot be achieved, and here, as you can see, the Syrian army has problems.

    If they decide to launch an offensive, it will end predictably: the Syrians will retreat from Tadef to the south by 5 kilometers, the Aerospace Forces will arrive and grind the advancing ones, then the Syrians return to Tadef and quickly go to wring out Al-Bab and the surrounding villages under the cover of the Aerospace Forces, while friend Recep is dial up to Moscow.

    First, unknown planes bombed a fuel and lubricants warehouse, then an unknown special forces bombed with 10 babays. It is slowly becoming clear why not all the Babay detachments want to fight for American promises of justice.

    The barmaley became tight with ammunition. Someone has to attack, and someone "hold out until dark."

    there are reports of a split in the ranks of the pro-Turkish armed opposition
    The larger the split, the more confusion and uncoordinated action there will be. And this only plays into the hands of the Syrian army. The militant empowered "Politburo" calls on the international community for military assistance, downright surrealism. Lacking Turkish Aid? Is it a shame that the Americans are helping other militants? T.N. the international community, represented by the "friends of Syria", is left to blame Russia and Assad for the umpteenth time (which they will decide for themselves) and to chip in to help the terrorists. It is not the first and unfortunately not the last time that "true democrats" and fighters for "human rights" have been feeding the militants.
