Turkey increases the scale of the military invasion of Syria

It is becoming aware of the increasing scale of the Turkish military invasion of Syria. Recall that the first stage of the Turkish operation, declared as an operation against the militants of the IG (prohibited in Russia), began with the bombing of the city of Jerablus in the north of the province of Aleppo. At the same time, dozens of armored vehicles of the Turkish armed forces crossed the Syrian border.

Today news agency Rider publishes information that another nine Turkish have been introduced into Syria tanks. Towards the Syrian settlements, Turkish construction machinery is also moving forward, which, as previously stated by representatives of the Syrian Kurds, was already in Syria, equipping a new border line drawn by Ankara arbitrarily in the depths of Syrian territory.

From the messages of the Turkish side:
We use construction equipment to open roads. This technique we need more when moving. We are ready for the same purpose to use armored vehicles.

Turkey increases the scale of the military invasion of Syria

According to the Turkish TV channel Haberturk, at the moment there are about 25 Turkish tanks in Syria.

Visiting Ankara, US Vice President Joe Biden, in an interview with Erdogan, said that the Kurdish militia in Syria had received a message from the United States that it could lose support if it attacked Turkish soldiers in the province of Aleppo. According to Biden, this is an expression of "strategic partnership between Washington and Ankara."

    Erdogan runs very hard. I decided to take a moment. So a double edged sword. It’s time to answer.

      Erdogan, no matter how he rested, but still this is just a card in the deck, which the Americans hang out, and they are famous cheaters.

        It is no longer known who hangs out and who leads his game.

        It is strange that it is no secret to anyone that the Kurds are somehow supported by the Americans.

      I get the impression that here just ISIS terrorists are replaced by terrorists from the Turkoman brigades + Turkish personnel and the released ISIS terrorists will be thrown to Aleppo and other areas where the SAA comes.

        I think the situation is agreed with the Russian side. Syria in the future threatens to cut into individual components. Save it in its original version - will not work. Great is the degree of internal contradictions in Syria between individual groups. Russia can occupy one of the separate parts of Syria and ensure its security, some part will be taken by the Turks - this is quite real.

        Stomp Russia, today will not be. It became clear that the benefits of further cooperation with Turkey are much more important than the accumulated contradictions. It is difficult to overestimate the possibilities of the Turkish stream. The second branch of such a flow is cutting Ukraine out of this business.
        If Ukraine is cut out of this business, the economic damage will be enormous, and therefore something will have to be done - for example, try to come to an agreement with the "aggressor", because you cannot feed yourself with slogans alone that will automatically cut Ukraine out of the US.

        Grandma Clinton cannot allow this, so when she takes over at the helm of the Empire of Good, her first point will be to establish relations with Turkey, aimed at degrading Russian-Turkish relations, in order to prevent large joint gas projects.

        Erdogan also understands this, p. a sortie into Syria is most likely an agreed step with Moscow.

          And can you tell your opinion a little more extensively? About the stick in two ends.

          Erdogan has been doing nothing for a year now. So he "went too far" that he and his comrade Putin almost "Sax on the phone." They send their "deep condolences" to each other tirelessly.

          "You will have to answer with time" ... Say hello to Gorbachev if you see wink First you need to put your Judas and villains on a stake ... and only then foreign ones.

            I don’t know what about "phone sex". But there is no doubt that the appearance of a gas pipe from Russia, by analogy with Ukraine, is a factor leading to a maidanization by the Americans. Acceleration of the pro-American opposition - get a pipe, there is no dispersal of scoundrels - there is no pipe.

          Many here idealize the Kurds, they call them almost allies. And they always and everywhere played their game. Their goal is to tear pieces from Turkey, Syria, Iran, Iraq. It turned out in Iraq, there is essentially no central government. But will it work in other countries? The Turks saw that a Kurdish crescent moon was being created around them, so they decided to act before it was too late.

          The trick is that Erdogan also needs a unified Syria now, because in the event of its collapse, the Kurds will get their state on the southern borders of Turkey. And then the war in the south-east of Turkey will become permanent, as the Kurds will have a base in Rojava. Plus, the militants Erdogan throws from under Aleppo and Idlib. That is, those who fought at the front against the SAA are now thrown against the Kurds and a little against the IS.

          The Russian military delegation will arrive in Turkey on August 26. The group will include the chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia Valery Gerasimov. This was reported by Anadolu.
          A plane with the Russian delegation on board will land in Ankara at 11:00. According to the agency, Gerasimov will meet with his colleague Hulusi Akar.

          The situation, if agreed with someone, but not only with Russia, but with the United States.
          And Erdogan acts in support of those whom the United States supplies arms, that is,
          SSA, the opposition leading the war against Assad.
          This is another "knife in the back", this is the payback for playing with this rascal and
          more serious losses from a similar game with Turkey are yet to come.

          Is it agreed, or maybe the cunning Erdogan has outplayed and for this we now have to do a mine with a bad game. There are no official comments yet, maybe because there is nothing to say.
          The picture does not look festive so far.
          Now only the President of Syria could tell the truth, but silence on the air and the coordination of actions is a big question.

    And the owners of the Russian Federation are silent. Sami opened the way to Erdogan, now reaping the benefits. Syria is losing territory, the authority of the Russian Federation is falling. Unless something like ... uh ... how to say it ... ah! Reactions to the actions of the aggressor. But then again, close the charters to Turkey. And tomatoes are needed ... And Turkish builders will come in handy here. Here in St. Petersburg, a social room is being cut for the stadium, it was stolen a little, still necessary. In a word, it is better to remain silent. Perhaps it will pass by itself.

    nine more Turkish tanks entered Syria

    On the one hand, this will not play a big role, but as they say - "dashing trouble is the beginning." Experts in the region tend to assume that the main target of the Turks is not ISIS, but the Kurds. But this is bad. Under beautiful slogans this clever asshole solves his problems.

        You still don't get it? Erdogan is trying to play his own game. Do you think he forgot the American-backed coup attempt? He took a step towards Russia - the United States rushed to pull to its side. This is a time of great trade for Taipovich. What's left for the White House? Shouting that Recep Taipovich went to fight without their permission? How? Without their knowledge, fleas do not breed. You forgot your interview with VVP, right after the stab in the back. There Vladimirovich hinted at some agreements on very important issues for Turkey. Turkey has its own interests in Syria. And Russia has its own interests in Syria. And these interests do not overlap and do not interfere with each other. They interfere with the United States, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. This is a little kick in the ass, arrogant Persians. Everyone understands that without agreement with Russia, Erdogan would not have started any movement on the border.

And America will cover them from Russia and nothing can be done with them without the outbreak of World War III.

At this rate, if they move - like the Nazis across Europe, you see, Syria will end .. With regard to the love of Kurds and Americans - Several times on Vesti-24 I saw stories from the Kurdish "trenches" .. so there are not only states feeding .. And the UN is silent ...

    However, the position in Syria is changing dramatically, and ours are "silent".
    What is it? Erdogan’s actions agreed in St. Petersburg?
    Or is it Erdogan’s actions, as a result of a lack of agreement in St. Petersburg? (Syria protested)
    Whatever Erdogan was, but not a complete madman, to go immediately against the United States and Russia? Although, also an option - to play on the contradiction of enemies. Events in Syria take a different color. Naturally, the Ukrainian and Syrian issues are now on the same scale. We will wait.

And (IMHO) Erdogan can do it, given Turkey's geopolitical position. And this means that Russia needs to be "careful" in this matter.

    Turkey will receive a buffer zone with a Kurdish state (autonomy?) In the north of what is now Syria. The purpose of this buffer is understandable - to exclude the supply of weapons to the PKK, to make it as difficult as possible for communications between Kurdish groups. Who else will get what pieces from Syria is the question, there are more than enough of those willing. Most likely, the Alawites and other Shiites with Christians will get Latakia, Aleppo (if they are beaten off). Israel's lips rolled out on the Gollans and maybe something else. The frostbitten Sunnis do not need anything other than the jihadmobile. In general, "we'll see."
