Turkish aviation bombs Syrian Jerablus

59
Materials appeared in the Turkish media stating that the Turkish Air Force is launching an operation "to liberate the Syrian city of Jerablus from IS militants (prohibited in the Russian Federation)." The Turkish military claims that the operation is aimed at supporting the local Kurdish militia and aims to prevent new migration flows from Syria.

Information Agency Anadolu reports that turkish aviation acts in conjunction with the forces of the so-called American coalition.





From the message of the representative of the headquarters operations:

The operation launched by the Turkish Armed Forces aims to free the border regions from terrorists and strengthen border security, as well as to contribute to the maintenance and support of the territorial integrity of Syria. The operations of the Turkish Armed Forces, which are actively fighting the IS, are a significant contribution to the activities of the coalition forces directed against this organization.


For reference: Djerablus is a city in the Syrian province of Aleppo (Aleppo). In 2012, militant groups seized him, calling themselves "the Syrian opposition." In the 2013 year, the “oppositionists” were knocked out by the militants of the so-called “Islamic State”. It was through this settlement that the oil flows from the territory of Syria, controlled by the militants, to the Turkish ports.

      As Bagdasarov says, whoever owns Jarablus and Azaz controls all supply flows from the militants, which means he controls the entire war. And I want to "please" you gentlemen, this is not done by our VKS with the "allies", but by the AMERICAN coalition! Quite frankly, our indecision has shaken our positions greatly. If you do not help the Kurds, thereby not becoming their main curator, the chances of winning in Syria tends to zero! Erdogan let dust in his eyes, and went to chop off further pieces from Syria, under an all-justifiable pretext, of the fight against ISIS.

        For some reason, this situation reminds me of LDNR-GDP said in an interview about the return of Crimea: we did not help Donbass just because the local population did not express at least 80-90% support at that time. So with Syria, there is no unequivocal support for Assad, even in the pro-government areas. Therefore, now the task is set to remove the IG, and not to save Assad’s power.

        BAGDASAROV - a rare talker and Kurdofil. So it’s hardly worth believing everything he says. In Syria there are 5 forces fighting for power in the country or its part. Now 3 of them have seized on a section of the Syrian-Turkish border. As the Israelis say constantly in the comments - good luck to all parties. The entry of militants and Turkish special forces into Jerablus is clearly agreed with Assad - representatives of Turkish intelligence from Damascus did not seem to have flown out of the negotiations. After talking with Putin in St. Petersburg, Erdogan sent emissaries to Syria to negotiate with Assad. Since then, Turkish actions have begun, and the Syrians are not very indignant - that means the parties have agreed on a temporary alliance against the Kurds and ISIS. This does not mean a full union, but a temporary truce is unequivocal. The Kurds themselves made an alliance against themselves by attacking the loyalists in Hasak - now they will begin to put them in place. The more Turks throw Jaish al Fatah fighters to the border, the fewer they will remain in Idlib and in Aleppo itself. Thu successful disposal. hi

        Well, in Aozhir, negotiations were held between Assad's and Erdogan's, again, they stirred up us in Hasak, when they gave the go-ahead to the Kurds to liquidate Assad's authorities by force. The unification of all Kurdish enclaves with the subsequent access of the Kurds to the sea and already de facto creation of a federation of cantons with ALREADY organized government bodies and armed forces is not in the interests of either the Turks, or Syria, or Iran. Russia is purple, even the USSR supported the Kurds only as an instrument of pressure on Turkey. In this way, namely, the aggravation in Hasak, we achieved what they demanded from the Turks several years ago - an occupation zone for "refugees" and by involving at least the 2nd field army in a full-scale war. This means that the flywheel of the war will turn over the Turks with The next move of us is predictable, but actually voiced by the director of the CIA - in the "fight against terrorism" must be taken as allies ... Alkaida, she is now renamed Nusra, which they perfectly armed and trained. Remember how they grumbled over the remaining 5 trained for half a billion dollars, if not more, well, so they are now torn from Idlib on tanks to Aleppo. So Russia is fussing in this tangle of bosom friends tearing each other's Adam's apple, no need, fuss will end with the fact that we will have to harness to the fullest on one of the sides, we will wait and spread in the corners, but for now we will bomb in support of Assad and his weapons to the "falcons" and "tigers". Let's see how the Kurds will multiply us by zero on the Turks. But this is THEIR choice.

      I think it’s not only the border that matters. The Turks want to prevent the geographic connection of the Kurdish regions of Syria, Turkey and Iraq into the long gut to the Mediterranean Sea.There are risks that such a gut will make it possible, with a certain pressure on Iraq, to ​​lay a gas pipeline from Qatar to Europe through Kurdish territories.And the Turks see themselves as the transit of Russian gas to the south of Europe. Having divided the Kurdish regions, Turkey complicates the Qatari project.

      No, the IS will most likely be knocked out. He is no longer needed there.

      In the morning we made passages for armored vehicles and either the light forces of the Turkish Special Forces and the 4000 of the pro-Turkish SSA entered, or already with BTG tanks.

      Plus they bomb the city, shell it from the T-155.

      Most likely they will knock out the IG and put the pro-Turkish SSA groups there to lead.

          Aleppo city and areas between Aleppo and the border
          economically and historically closely related to Turkey.
          Aleppo has always traded more with Turkey than with Damascus.
          The population there sympathizes with the Turks.
          If Putin before the start of the operation pondered quietly with Erdogan
          about spheres of influence and sections of military responsibility, then many
          mistakes (conflict with ethnic Turks - Turkoman, plane, etc.)
          could you escape.
          And it is clear that the "battle for Aleppo", started by the stubborn Assad, is doomed.
          Damascus has neither influence nor superiority in power. And reinforcements and supplies
          across the Turkish border ("Turkish Express") will always be blocked by the "Syrian Express"
          to Latakia and Damascus.

            The battle for Aleppo is developing perfectly, no reasons for defeat are foreseen. A temporary alliance against the Kurds in the interests of both Turks and Syrians. In my opinion, everything that happens is in Assad’s favor. If Jaish al Fath splits into the pro-Turkish and pro-Saudi parts, then only for. If Saa takes Aleppo in the coming months, then the rural areas of Idlib are not of interest to the Turks, because they may well merge this piece of territory by transferring loyal militants against the Kurds. In general, good luck to all parties in the north of Aleppo in mutual extermination.

      Barzanists, for example, with Erdogan, strategic allies, friends, two Turkish bases were placed at their place. In general, Barzani is betting on Erdogan in his future secession from Iraq.

      Rozhava and Ko - on their own, there are clans who are for Barzani, there are their own, there are generally Pro-Baha’s.

    Either Yildrim says we will not allow the creation of a Kurdish state in Syria. So they help the Kurds? Obviously with the permission of the Russian Federation, the Turks are bombing, or they were cautious about bombing in Syria, but here it is? Ishil is a very good tool and an excuse to implement their plans for many in the region. IS can provide weapons to the "moderates" for the United States. Do not make excuses why they are arming some kind of people against the legitimate power. In this game, all white fluffies all over the world staged a fight against IS, at the same time supplying pressure to the Kurds on Turkey, Turkey on the Kurds, moderate on Assad , Russia and Assad on the moderates in order to make them more complaisant. Sometimes I ask myself the question is the USA on the thrill just to see chaos? Why all these games in which the devil himself breaks his leg.
