"This is a signal for the Russians": Middle Eastern media write that the Turkish army struck the territory adjacent to the observation post of the Russian Armed Forces in northern Syria

66

Middle Eastern media publish materials that say that the Turkish Armed Forces launched an artillery strike on the territory adjacent to the observation post of the Russian Armed Forces in northern Syria. It is stated that the artillery was used against detachments of the Kurdish militia in the area of ​​the settlement of Ash-Shahba and as a "signal for the Russians." Some sources even write that the blow was inflicted directly on the "Russian military facility".


It is alleged that "this was a response to the bombing of the positions of the pro-Turkish armed groups in Idlib, as well as in the north of the country - in the Al-Bab region and to the east." Earlier it was reported that when striking militants in the Syrian province of Idlib and near El-Bab, “Russian military aviation».

One of the reports from Syrian sources:

On the eve, Russian aviation also struck the territory where the sale of illegally extracted oil and products of its processing was carried out. These are areas controlled by Turkish troops and pro-Turkish formations southeast of Jerablus in the Aleppo (Aleppo) province. The air strike destroyed several diesel and oil tankers. At the same time, a missile strike was launched from the positions of the Assad forces on the territory on which the Turks carried out their operation "Shield of the Euphrates".

For reference: Ankara is actually turning the territory on which this operation was carried out from Syrian into Turkish. The Turkish infrastructure is being actively built there, the concentration of the Turkish military has been increased.

The Russian military department has not yet commented on the information about air strikes on the indicated areas and oil tankers, as well as about the shelling of the Ash-Shahba area by Turkish troops.

    The Kurds, especially the Turkish ones, need to be actively supported, the kamikaze Lancet drones should be tested on the pro-Turkish militants; for a good cause, you do not need to yellow weapons.

            If we proceed from the expediency of the presence of the Russian Aerospace Forces in the SAR as to solve the problem of protecting the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the SAR, then The operation of the Russian Aerospace Forces was carried out in the STRATEGIC and TACTICAL terms absolutely correctly!
            Both the Turks and the pro-American Kurds in the oil-bearing regions of Syria have nothing to do.

            Have they bombed the stolen Syrian oil from the Turks and Kurds? Don't steal! They are themselves to blame.

            Turkey in the SAR is an aggressor. And the Kurds are also invaders and radical nationalists in the SAR.

              They have oil for themselves and some for sale. OPEC with such a volume will not even take an observer.

              Peak production in 2010 was 386 thousand barrels per day.
              The absolute record was 610 barrels, but then the fields became impoverished and production fell by 000%. And then again and again.

              For example, Kuwait pumps 3,5-4 million barrels. Saudis 7,5 with restrictions, and as much as you want.

              For OPEC, Syria with its reserves (scanty in comparison with OPEC members) is not at all interesting. And there will be practically no oil regions left in Syria. We can say that the territory has already been divided - it remains to fix new boundaries over time. All the oil behind Deir Ez-Zor remained with the Kurds. The same as in the Haseke area. Plus, under the control of the Pindo Stanis. It is not clear to whom it will belong. Since nobody will give Kurdistan to appear, nobody needs it, except Israel. The north of Syria is practically Turkey. now it is their cow, which they are actively milking. Syria has little left of oil.

          Now they are discussing the draft of the new Constitution of Syria. The working group seems to represent representatives of all the warring parties - Assad, Kurds, opposition. Along the way, everything will depend on who will gnaw out how many buns for himself, so that by signing a document to pacify the civil war, however, the problem of the territories under the Turks and mattresses will hang for a long time.

              And how much will Russia receive for the police function?
              The functions of Russia by the Federation Council are defined by two tasks - 1) the fight against terrorism, 2) -Preservation of the statehood of Syria. The timing of these two tasks is determined by the Federation Council not "until complete victory", but as temporary, which allows the withdrawal of the Russian contingent at any time that Russia deems necessary, and without image losses, since took part not on her own initiative and without prior arrangement, but at the invitation of the official authorities. If Damascus considers that the amount of aid provided is sufficient and then it can cope on its own, then Russia's presence will be limited to maintaining its bases in Tartus and Khmeimim, with the withdrawal of an excess part of the contingent. As for the "payment", this issue will be resolved in the post-war period through a system of contracts for the restoration of oil and gas facilities, railway and destroyed infrastructure in Syria.

                  It will not be possible to cleanse the Kurds, tk. this will be equated with genocide since they are the same citizens of Syria who have lived on its territory for centuries, who, alas, are now more friends with mattresses than with Damascus. If in the new Constitution they are satisfied with the status of autonomy, then they may go over to the side of the CAA.

                  Turks and mattresses are the occupying forces in Syrian territory, and therefore the solution to the issue of squeezing them out is in the competence of Damascus, but not Russia. In solving this issue, we can provide diplomatic and financial support. As for the Barmaley, yes, when the Syrians work on the ground, our Aerospace Forces will continue to provide them with air support. Something like this. hi

          Everything will stop when the oil on this territory runs out for the Erdogan family and there is nothing to fill the endorgan's tanker fleet. Continue bombing, at least prevent Erdogan and the terrorists from earning money on stolen oil. Terrorists in Syria are self-sufficient from the sale of stolen oil with the help of Erdogan.

      Lord, you are all military people .... first we look at the map and assess the situation: Syria is primarily a profitable transport corridor west-east, south-north, who sits in Syria and controls it - rules Europe, China, the Saudis with their oil , yuva, india ... and. etc. And oil is so - the consequences of a territorial showdown. The base in Tartus covers the corridor from Asia to Europe with aviation and drones, and half of the world's population lives there in these territories. And if God forbid all this bunch of peoples and countries will unite simply among themselves, and then inevitably against the USShameriki, then the United States and others like them will not seem a little. So, the one who owns Syria rules the planet until the situation changes. And it cannot change as long as hydrocarbons are the main energy source. So Russia does not need all kinds of oil and gas pipelines through the territory of Syria, which are cheap to build and easy to control in operation. If they interrupt - let the SP-2 finish building. Therefore, let the Turks rage while they rage in our favor. In favor of the Russian Federation.

        Some people have such a psychology - they throw bait at them (like a worm to a fish), and they gladly swallow it. Moreover, the freebie does not scare them, on the contrary - for some reason it seems to them that the freebie is only lucky for them, because he is so extremely lucky. The idea that this could be bait does not even occur to my head.

Only here, apparently, Russia itself does not want to quarrel with the Kurds, but is thinking of gradually luring them back into common Syria. this way, of course, the war will go on for another 10 years.

      And why do you need to bomb derricks - they are used not for oil production, but for drilling wells, while rockers are used for production.
      Replacing the rocking chair and pumping oil again is a matter of just one day.
      And one more thing: why are you going to bomb the oil fields? This is the same as bombing the Siberian taiga, where there is also a lot of oil, only it lies at a depth of one and a half kilometers and below, and you are going to burn thousands of tons of BP - what good do you expect from these bombings? ... laughing

    The article focuses on the threat of the Turks to the Russian contingent, and in the comments, as usual, 90% of the chatter about anything, from the Kurds, oil to the Americans, but not about the article itself ... And somehow it’s not interesting to read comments, opinions of people about the news. For there are no more opinions. There is chatter about outsiders. The "minus one" function of comments killed the right to express one's opinion.

    everything is solved very simply and in one day, by bombing these towers, bombing them and there is no oil or money.

    It seems like the Wagnerites were beaten in such an attempt ...
    Alas ... a lot ...

      The RF is enough for 10 minutes to expand the Bosphorus to the width of Turkey, it's a pity that there is no will for this yet, but with open attacks on the base, I think they will stop throwing pearls in front of the pigs.

    "This is a signal for the Russians" ... the blow was struck directly at the "Russian military facility."
    Some media outlets on BV wrote information that had not been verified by anyone and did it not for the first time (informational "White Helmets"), but on the site spears are already breaking and shields are cracking. Is it really incomprehensible that in the event of a strike on our military units, the answer will be in any case, regardless of who did it.

    that the Turkish Armed Forces launched an artillery strike on the territory adjacent to the observation post of the Russian Armed Forces in northern Syria
    Well, here I immediately remembered one anecdote back in that happy Soviet era: "The political officer in the military school answers the student's question, what is the difference between an act of aggression and a military conflict !?
    - When a drunken bully, your girlfriend inclines to sexual intercourse - this is an act of aggression ...;
    - And when you hit him with your muzzle on the asphalt - then this is already a military conflict! " wink laughing

    The Russian military department has not yet commented on the information about air strikes on the indicated areas and oil tankers, as well as about the shelling of the Ash-Shahba area by Turkish troops.

    The Russian military department does not have Maria Zakharova on staff, so Su34, Su-35 will be "commented" on ...

    Who will get the Syrian oil?


    They have no oil on an industrial scale.
    In good times, 30 million dollars a year were mined

    And what about the Turks there then with p-i_n_d_o-s_mi? laughing
