Turkey, on the border with Syria, is deploying US HIMARS operational-tactical systems

American portal DefenseNews announces plans for official Ankara to deploy and conduct a trial phase of the operation of the air defense system on the border with Syria. This information is published by the American media with reference to the Turkish security service. It is noted that one of the sections of the Turkish-Syrian border will patrol mini-airships.

Turkey, on the border with Syria, is deploying US HIMARS operational-tactical systems

In addition, the Turkish security forces will place the Serhat installation at the borders, which allows you to set the location of the mortar calculations. Among other things, readiness to deploy US-made HIMARS operational-tactical systems is reported. Attention is drawn to the fact that previously there were no official publications of the Turkish Ministry of Defense on the availability of HIMARS systems in service with the Turkish army. In this case, it can be stated that a process is underway that, a few days earlier, the head of the Pentagon, Ashton Carter, called "Turkey’s help in blocking the Turkish-Syrian border." Here it is necessary to make one important addition. The same Carter said that the United States will help Turkey "in the fight against international terrorism, as well as in the face of Russian aggression."

Given the fact that the militants of various terrorist groups in Turkey feel at home, American assistance is certainly not aimed at countering ISIL and may be one of the elements of another provocation in northern Syria, where the Turkish border infrastructure is actively moving. According to the testimony of local residents from among the Kurds, the Turkish army actually carried out the transfer of the border line several hundred meters into the Syrian territory at once in several sectors, carrying out a real seizure of the lands of a foreign state.

    Erdogan’s ambitions were Napoleonic, but in view of the break-in, at least grab the pieces under the hood. Vskray insolent figure.

      He is exactly as impudent as the overseas owners allow him. It seems that the Americans are now intensifying their pressure on Assad. Then the appearance of the OTRK and the strengthening of anti-aircraft defense on the Turkish-Syrian border and the unexpected counter-offensive of the IS in Raqqa (practically leading to the defeat of the Syrian forces there) are the links of one chain. Probably, in the near future, there will be another offensive by anti-Assad forces, but already in the north of the SAR. Naturally supported by the Turks.

        It seems that in the first place, the Americans themselves need this air defense, and the Turks in this situation are extras for eyes aversion.
        But in case of boiling, extras will still be extras)))

    Edren-loaf, border guards there with the support of the Airborne Forces, close the north in Syria and that's it, the issue is resolved, but losses are inevitable. Shaitans only Jordan will remain. Assad kick back. If you think more broadly - the defeat of Russia in Syria is the collapse of our state. Think Vladimir Vladimirovich.

      We’ve already thought about it! We must follow the news. Patrushev in the Kaliningrad region made a statement on NATO’s advance to the East and Gerasimov’s statement on Syria is very serious.

      There, in Racca, the gut collapsed, now they are counting the losses. For a day and a half, the strike force with the Syrians, Lebanese, Iranians and advisers ran 30 km.

      You offer to go to Idlib - now all the supplies for transitions in the 90km Idlib window. The estate of the NUSR. In fact, half the province, including Idlib itself, will have to be captured in order to reliably close the border. Cities level Idlib Syrians have not yet taken. Plus, there JAF will be able to expose 30-40 of thousands of bayonets with local militias, Turkomans and others. Plus, it is possible that in case of a cut, Turkish tourists will trample through the corridors with equipment, as it was in Azaz, when black came up to him.

      That is, do you propose to get involved in a full-scale ground operation? They’re waiting for this to bungle us a new Afghan. Moreover, even if our border guards and paratroopers make their way there and gain a foothold there, they will be surrounded by constant supply and support, in which case. The situation is very bad, the Yankees seem to have decided to test the possibility of a direct clash between the Turks and Assad to drag us into the makhalovo, there’s nowhere to go if they trample, and in Russia to inflate an anti-war campaign.

    With this move, the states finally unmasked their plans to support the terrorists, and no matter what they say, the World hears as it is, and not as they need it.

    The same Carter said that the United States will help Turkey "in the fight against international terrorism, as well as in the face of Russian aggression"

    Amazing hypocrisy. Units of the RF Armed Forces are on the territory of Syria in accordance with the norms of international law, all the rest are not, and therefore are aggressors (the UN is silent in a rag). And the "international terrorists" will most likely not be ISIS and Co., but the Kurds, whom the Americans once again betrayed by agreeing to recognize them as "shaitans."

    For any reason, Turks and Americans play with the same goal, but their goals are different. Russian services need to focus on working with the Kurds and turn off the Turks, namely with the Kurds living in Turkey.

      - range - up to 80 kilometers;

      The base in Latakia is somewhere in 50 kilometers from the Turkish border, which means that it is within the reach of the MLRS, not to mention tactical ATAMACS missiles in which the range reaches 300 kilometers.
