Another Turkish-led Attack On Saraqib Ends With Disaster

Donate

On March 4, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies repelled another Turkish-led attack on Saraqib city in eastern Idlib.

The attack was launched in the early morning hours by al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and the National Front for Liberation (NFL). As usual, the Turkish military supported militants with artillery and rocket strikes.

Despite the Turkish support, militants failed to reach Saraqib city. The SAA’s 25th Special Forces Division and Lebanon’s Hezbollah repelled the attack in the outskirt of the city. The Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) and the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) provided the city’s defenders with a close air support.

Turkish combat drones were not able to support the attack. However, the Turkish Air Force (TAF) made a failed attempt to shoot down a Syrian warplane near the city.

Initial reports indicate that Turkish-backed militants sustained catastrophic losses in the attack. Some pro-government sources claimed that up to 150 militants were neutralized around Saraqib.

A day earlier, a group of Turkish-backed militants attempted to stage a chemical provocation around Saraqib. However, they ended up poisoning themselves.

The repeated Turkish-led attacks on Saraqib are aimed at blocking the strategic Damascus-Aleppo highway, known as the M5. The highway runs through the city’s center. The SAA and its allies will not apparently allow this to happen.

    This is the only kind of news that need to come out of the battlefield against the terrorist invaders in Syria. Hopefully the weekend fuckup in Saraqib won’t ever be repeated, it cost too many SAA lives, much more than the Turkish/ISIS/al-Qaeda filth should be able to brag about. Hopefully SAA can liberate Nairab again before Erdogoon goes to Moscow.

  • Hyper19

    The SAA claims alot but no proof whatsoever

    • Saquib raza

      Give a single day time drone attack video. Have you find any? Well didn’t turkey attack with drones during daytime????

      • Hyper19

        the videos dont lie and what makes you think that?

        • Saquib raza

          Give a day attack video . I told you give a single day time attack of drones on saa . I will admit. It is true otherwise false video. Do it like America do when they attack during day time. No need to infrared. Because it is day . U.see clearly.

        • yep

        yes, some articles are near “fictional” but not all of them

      • shylockracy

        The nuclear sharing program of NATO terrorists allows Turkroaches to use nukes on Turkish planes if the US approves-

      • yep

        USA nukes are stocked in Incirlik in Turkey so you got your reading wrong (unless of course USA took them back from you because they can’t trust Erdofart )

      LOL. Now seriously, why don’t agree to build a war around the border as the yids have ?.

  • The Saint

    The Turk ‘air force’ is reduced to firing stand-off missiles from Turk airspace. They can’t fly their planes over Syria and they’re too scared to risk what’s left of their drones (less than half a dozen) so they all hide in Turk airspace.

    The missiles fired from the F16 can easily be shot down with Tor or Pantsir. Turk artillery is being directly targetted as soon as it is fired resulting in daily Turk casualties.

    Erdo has no good cards to play and he has no friends left in the international community. The US is egging Erdo on from the sideline, not because they support him or Turkey but rather they want to stir up trouble with Russia. If you could have written a worst case scenario for Turkey and Erdo then this would be just about it

    • Tim Williams

      ERDO is holding the JOKER cards

    • Tim Williams

      Russia considers SYRIA as training for their forces … they get to test out all their weapons … what works well … what doesn’t …

      He got beaten on libya and syria. Erdogan are to stupid to see he is getting pound al over the place. Either he will burn all his army and country or turks will go bankrupt first.

    Sultan Erdoganders army will conquer Syria soon, but first they are practicing a hasty ‘Run-for-You-lives!!’-exercise in order to build up cardio! When they run back to Turkey, they have successfully completed Operation Misery Spring and Smelly Branch by taking their foul smelling arses back home! Complete Success!!
