123
The Ministry of Defense of the Saudi monarchy confirmed the transfer of aircraft to Turkey to the base Incirlik to participate in the operation against the IG, reports RIA News the message of the head of the Saudi military department Ahmed Asiri.




“Saudi military aircraft were deployed at the Incirlik airbase in Turkey to participate in the air operation of the international coalition against the Islamic State,” said the Minister on the Al-Arabiya channel.

“The number of fighters involved in strikes on the territory of Syria will depend on the goals set by the coalition,” said Asiri, noting that we are not talking about land connections to Turkey.

"The deployment of aircraft in Turkey is not under some kind of bilateral agreement between Saudi Arabia, but within the framework of the actions of the anti-terrorist international coalition," he added.

Meanwhile, Saudi Foreign Minister Al-Jubeir said he did not rule out the option of overthrowing Bashar al-Assad.

“Assad will no doubt leave his post in any case, either he will resign, or he will be biased by force,” the diplomat said.

“We insist on resolving the Syrian crisis by political means, but if the situation comes to a standstill, it is only the fault of the“ obstinate ”regime of Assad and his allies. In this case, there will be no other options other than a forceful solution to the problem ",
explained the minister.

    As it comes around, it will respond. And are the Saudis not worried about the possibility of overthrowing their regime by force?

          Come on. Correctly Yakov Kedmi said (not literally): "The Arabs are supposed to do this - to loudly threaten, intimidate, wave their fists, etc. But in reality - zilch" or, as the proverb says: "Do not be afraid of that dog that barks, be afraid of that that is silent.

            Considering that perhaps the SA has designated the purpose of its presence, the situation is not very good. By assuming the death of Assad, we can safely predict that no one will collect Syria into a single state. After such an event, the fate of Libya awaits her, and from here it turns out the futility of all of ours help. I hope ours will find how to put a check in this game, the king of the CA?

                Ultimatums from them are powerless.
                When they built up "opposition" and felt themselves masters of the situation, there were no ultimatums.
                Yes, and they are not warriors, as Yemen showed, they are traders and mullahs but not warriors.
                In addition, the United States has already pulled the Turks banning the touch of the Syrian Kurds.
                And if the Turks can still give a damn about US +, the Turks have something to sensitively blackmail Europe, then the Saudis, against the will of the "white master", insolently will not climb without having another master. They pop and sit down to wipe off.
                But with the Turks, another thing - Erdogan’s life’s business is dying. His dreams of a complete political dominance in the BV were covered by older boys. It can stupidly break into a tantrum.

Destroy the officially intruders with all diligence, and in the event of an attack on Russian troops, inflict a destructive preventive strike on the military infrastructure that ensures the invasion.

                They’ll get a bad breath even if they are interested in Hezbollah, which has several divisions of fighters with strong combat experience. No wonder Israel takes Hezbola very, very seriously.
                Given the fact that the Saudis have enough Shiites in the territory, concentrated in the most oil-bearing regions, they would sit on a well-fed priest evenly and not squander too much.

            Yasha can say what he wants, because no one listens to him anymore, he gave thanks, so to speak. Here we should recall the background of the war, and it is such that it was the Saudis who publicly declared that they would pay for the war against Syria to any state. The hint was made by Turkey and the Egyptian Empire. The Egyptians sent kings to hell, and despite the great Saudi aid to Egypt in the social fields. And even did it not quite diplomatically. After that, a color revolution broke out in the ARE. The Turks lulled with all their dog gut. But to open aggression, Erdogan was not allowed civil outrage. This is what caused the riots in Turkey, and not some kind of American intervention, as many believed. For a full-fledged war, nevertheless, the consolidation of citizens was required. After that, the Turks went by the method of the Chechen war, the benefit was the experience and all the same Shishani experts. Arming and training bandits, followed by sending to Syria. And this plan would have worked like a cannon, but ruined the timbre of your own song, the radical motive has become a comprehensive leitmotif in this knot of tension, like the whole BV, jumping to all territories with weak administration. Today it’s a fire around a barrel of gasoline and a matter of time and wind when it explodes ...

There will be no UN scream, Assad and us to hammer out "allies"? Hmm, that's already a question.

        Type probed - how to react to their threats? Such rhetoric comes from the USA! They analyze how Russia, Iran, Syria will react! Most likely they are pushing the Saudis, Turks, etc. (because it is beneficial for them to bleed and destroy them if necessary), and then devour half-dead carcasses! I think they have just such plans about the SA, Turkey, and other BV allies! And oil and gas pipes are one of the main reasons!
        But Assad said: "Whoever comes with a sword will return to the coffin!"
        So, I hope that this is pure - a terrifying howl of jackals, inciting, burning, circling a bloody feast, waiting for their feast!

And Iran simply fenced us off from a rash act; otherwise, now this weapon that we would have sold to Saudi Arabia could have fired at Syrians and possibly us.

      The biggest, just huge, mistake of the Saudis is that they climbed into Yemen.
      Until that moment, the whole world was thinking, "wow, they have the most modern army - even the staff of the staff, on average, are more outdated and the saturation of the troops with equipment is lower, the dudes are really cool, on the BV definitely no one was standing nearby.
      And then Yemen.
      And it turned out that these "tough dudes" bought military equipment simply for prestige and status. Kind of like a big harem if even the abilities of just one concubine are barely enough.
      And the authority of the Saudis collapsed sharply. And without him, they will have big problems - around the scorpion nest. In BV, money is very respected. But power is respected even more.

      The Saudis are trying to show how cool they are and generally want to be reckoned with. But nobody attacks them for one simple reason: allied relations with the United States. And because of this, they did not seriously fight with anyone, and if this happens, they will carry them to the full extent, because the army is not motivated.
      PS. There was no such country 100 years ago, and perhaps in 100 years they will not remember about them.

The Yemenis have fully appreciated the efficiency of the Saudis' aviation. I hope our air forces will not allow hospitals and weddings to be bombed with impunity. And so - let them fly in Turkey, burn fuel and resources. Didn't move the ground forces, you hollow? The Ottomans at least work with art, however, sluggishly, just like the National Battalions in the ATO zone, provoking a "response". Does it look like the teachers and directors are alone? And the Saudis' planes are not too dangerous. Again, no one gave them permission to fly over Syria - the "suddenly seen" Syrian air defense could "land", and airplanes cost money. A lot of.

    BREAKING - Turkey shells YPG targets for second time

    The Turkish army has shelled positions held by Kurdish-backed fighters in northern Syria for a second day, a Turkish government source told Al Jazeera.

    The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based monitoring group, also reported the shelling, saying that two fighters died in the incident.

    Turkey on Saturday demanded the Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) fighters withdraw from areas that it captured in the northern Aleppo region in recent days.

    The shelling has targeted an airbase and other positions captured by the Kurdish-backed forces in Syria.

    Briefly - The Turks beat the Kurds at Azaz for the second day and ordered to leave the region (or hit an adult).

      What for example? The Saudis alone will not climb. Bahren, Turks, the UAE, and even the devil knows who will come. The army of Assda will not really be able to oppose them.

        Well, here a lot depends on Iran, if it supports Syria, then most likely ours will provide support, mainly with weapons and equipment. Iran doesn’t have such a big choice, either to merge Syria and then it will eat the whole flock for a snack according to a similar scenario, or openly support Syria.

    It is clear that Erdogan no longer decides on an open confrontation in Syria with Russia. A hot, 30-year-old heir to the SA, who led the MO, is eager for battle. He can go on a provocation, not really thinking about the consequences.

    Which of the Turks fighters is unknown. I suspect that it’s not very - they have no experience of participating in high-intensity conflicts and it is unlikely that the army is ready for them. For this, experience is needed for staff, commanders of units and subunits, the interaction of units and clans and species has been optimized. Otherwise, a mess, stupid losses, a friendlifer, a disagreement on the lines and positions, broken support columns and other amenities of a relatively large and relatively armed but poorly managed at different levels that have no experience of interaction in the conditions of enemy army fire.
    As it turned out, even among the Yusovites, this is far from openwork, although they consider the issues of mutual engagement as basic in the preparation of officers, they are rigidly trained to do this from the "cadets' cradle" without sparing hours of theory and practice.
    But FIG knows, suddenly the Turks are geniuses and they have everything in order, even if so far they have been engaged in garrison service only occasionally with ivy from several Kurdish villages armed with a rifleman.
    But, damn it, where are the camels going?
    Their grandmother's job is to spit up and cheeks are inflated, which of them are fighters.

    A violent decision to change the state structure in the country by another state is nothing more than AGGRESSION. And a normal country will defend itself by all available means. The same thing happened when Nazi Germany attacked the Soviet Union. How it ended should be remembered by all the aggressors who want to remake the country for themselves. This was shown by both Iraq and Libya and Yugoslavia. So far, they are only in a "rudimentary" state, until they fully realized what they had done and what they had done with them. But when they realize, it will not seem enough to ALL aggressors! For us, this statement of the Saudi monarchy is the likelihood of engaging in direct military confrontation. Well at least in foreign territory. A good test for our weapons. It is a pity, of course, for the military who will die there. But this is already their choice (which they made when entering a military school). And the rulers of all snickering camps (how to put it mildly) are not very smart. And they absolutely do not give a damn about the common people of their state and the other too.

    The artillery of the Syrian Arab Army returned fire at the locations of the self-propelled guns in Turkey, which fired on government troops and militias in northern Latakia.

    The Syrian media activists were the first to report this, citing their own sources among the army team: “Urgent: it is reported that the SAA launched retaliatory shelling of the Turkish army’s positions in Turkey!”

    After, several media confirmed this information, citing data from their own correspondents.

    So, according to journalists, the gun crews of the Syrian Army fired several salvos at the aggressor.

    According to some reports, the Turkish military supported the militants retreating from the captured settlement in northern Latakia under shelling of government troops.

    The day before, the Turkish army fired at Minneh airbase in Latakia. The base is located on the highway from the Syrian border and is a strategically important facility for government troops. Five powerful shells exploded at the airport, one of the runways became unusable and needs repair.


    If so, then it's time to hit the insolent Turkish face!

    for a state that does not have its own powerful military industrial complex, with a lack of developed industry, which has enough enemies in this region, is not a member of NATO - a very rash statement ... Will Assad leave anyway? And if you break up the entire oil industry overnight in your state, how soon will you leave?

    Everyone is bluffing.
    Erdogan himself is not immune from a military coup. After all, the United States does not want to give up support for the Kurds. The overthrow of Erdogan, by the way, is likely to defuse the situation. But for now, he is still needed to put pressure on Moscow.
    Riyadh inside the camp is no better. Perhaps the Saudis want to have time to break through the corridor in eastern Syria for the oil pipeline while the SAA is busy in the Aleppo region and demonstrate at least some results in their foreign policy.
    The overthrow of Assad without the support of Moscow is an unattainable goal.
    Most likely, NATO is trying to test the strength of Moscow's position. Probably, "gingerbread" is also offered.
