Assad Forces Give Turkish Army Whipping In Eastern Idlib

On February 20, the 2nd Army of NATO and its proxy forces once again failed to capture the village of Nayrab, eastern Idlib, from the Syrian Army. The Turkish attack involved 2 dozens of military equipment pieces, including battle tanks and artillery, over 200 Turkish soldiers and approximately 300 members of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and other Turkish-backed groups.

The Turkish attack started at approximately 13:00 local time under jeers of mainstream media regarding the nearing collapse of the Syrian defense and the Assad government under powerful strikes of the Turkish Army. By 14:00 local time, some Turkish supporters in twitter already concurred Aleppo city and were preparing to advance on Damascus.

However, by 17:00 it appeared that the attack died out despite the massive rocket and artillery strikes and the participation of Turkish troops united their efforts against the Syrians with al-Qaeda. Turkish-led forces, supposedly Turkish troops, even launched a MANPAD at a Russian Su-24 warplane that came to provide a close-air-support to Syrian troops. After this, the Turkish Defense Ministry reported that 2 Turkish soldiers were killed and 5 others were injured in an airstrike.

In keeping with the best traditions, the Turkish Defense Ministry a victorious statement claiming that 50 ‘Assad troops’ were killed, 2 Syrian battle tanks, 2 armoured vehicles, 2 armed pickups and a howitzer were destroyed. However, all what the Turkish side was able to demonstrate to confirm these claims were a few Hayat Tahrir al-Sham selfies from the vicinity of Nayrab. Turkish state media immediately declared that Turkish forces did not want to capture the village and just sent a message to the oppressive Assad regime.

After this, the mighty Turkish Army requested Patriots systems from the United States in order to deter the Assad aggression in Idlib. There are two explanations:

  • Ankara apparently missed news that Patriots deployed at in Saudi Arabia had repeatedly failed to protect its military infrastructure from missile and drone strikes by the Yemeni Houthis.
  • The Erdogan government would like to see troops of the United States in Idlib alongside their Turkish and al-Qaeda counterparts.

The Russian side officially confirmed that its warplanes supported the Syrian Army striking targets in Idlib. According  to it, a battle tank, 6 armoured vehicles and 5 armed pickups were destroyed. Moscow says that Turkish artillery strikes injured 4 Syrian soldiers.

February is coming to its end and the Turkish ultimatum demanding the Syrians to withdraw from the liberated areas is expiring. The inability of Turkish forces to recapture even a single village from the Syrian Army already became a powerful blow to the public image of the Erdogan government. Therefore, it’s likely that the Turkish Army will continue their attacks in Idlib paying with own blood for neo-ottoman dreams of Erdogan and its inner circle.

            P.S. Why don’t you call yourself “Ron”? Ronald is such a sissy name.

          • Ronald

            I’ve never forgotten any of my women, warrior or Goddesses,
            There was no need to call me ‘boy’ or a ‘sissy’, I only answered because I thought Xoli Xoli was trying to give you the gears, sorry you took offence. Above was the Tibetan Buddhist prayer to Kali, who is Shiva’s Love, here is a Hindu version.
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hl4dW30K1zU
            Thanks for your link

          • Karen Bartlett

            I apologize if I was wrong about you, and I’m sorry to have called the name Ronald a sissy name. I was trying to make you feel bad. “Boy” is a Southern term. It can be good or bad, depending on context. I meant it as bad, so I’m sorry for that, too.

            I thought you were putting down women with the Kali post, so I decided to hit back. In fact I thought you were expressing the opinion in a roundabout way that women shouldn’t be on this site, saying anything about or being interested in military stuff or war. Like in “Kinder, Kersch, Kitchen”, or some such expression.

            I don’t know what you mean by “give you the gears”, I’ve never heard that expression. I figure you’re probably a Brit, though, and it means something. (I don’t need to know what. It’s probably gross) Xoli Xoli just knows I read a lot and like to research stuff on YouTube videos I stumble across. The last video I posted is excellent, so I’m glad you enjoyed it.

            I know little about and don’t believe in Kali, so the import of the Kali post entirely escapes me. Theotokos is real, though. She’s Mary, the Mother of God. And she’s no “little woman”. :)

          • Ronald

            Karen, apologies accepted, thank you.
            Was trying elevate women to Supreme Goddess, not a put down.
            Many men of the Abrahamic (Jewish-Christian-Islamic) religions have ‘control’ issues and can’t handle real equality, not Hinduism.
            Kali is not only the lover of Shiva, but is God .
            The one book you might read explaining Hinduism is the “Bhagava Gita”, explaining ego, or false attachment verses the Reality, you are God
            The story unfolds on a battlefield, as Krishna explains why the king do his duty and follow through on an impending war even though he would rather not.
            You’ll love it.

        • FlorianGeyer

          Murdering defenceless people is a Turkish military skill that has been practiced for many hundreds of years.

          I fully expect the Turks to murder hundreds or even thousands if refugees in the camps on their borders with Syria, and then blame the Russian or Syrian forces.

          CNN and the BBC would of course be magically in country to film the carnage.

    • Free man

      On paper Turkey has a huge army.
      In practice, Erdogan purged the army and removed hundreds of talented officers. And Turkey suffers failure after failure in Syria.
      It seems that Erdogan should stop releasing threats and hot air and start pleading with Russia for a diplomatic solution.

    • Ricky Miller

      I think they would do better if they were defending Turkey. Any army needs to have an overwhelming belief in mission and trust in their national leadership to depart their own borders and go and beat someone else in their own territory. That fighting spirit is more important than weapons and tactics, although all three help a lot. The Turkish Armed Forces probably have limited belief in Erdogan, and certainly a limited desire to fight or die inside Syria. The Syrian forces, on the other hand, are defending home. Their allies have overwhelming control of the airspace and they spent the last fifteen months coiling material and strength for this action. It’s a far more balanced fight than would appear.

    • captainnemo2

      They will be fighting Russia.
      Without any air cover.

    • gustavo

      The problem for Turkish is that Syria will not fight alone against Turkey.

      • JIMI JAMES

        Just like turkey never fights alone in syria with their how many european allies n sht?

        • Traiano Welcome

          Show me one European ally bravely fighting alongside Turkish troops in Syria?
          Where are the mighty British Paras, fearlessly parachuting into Idlib to gun down SAA soldiers? French? Italians, Germans? NATO forces … Nowhere to be seen.

    • JIMI JAMES

      Get your hand off it,syria has twice as many tanks that dont rip apart like nato crap in hits!
      syria’s logistics fine tuned nearing 10 years,battle hardened much more agile fighters(period)
      and turkey can’t afford to waste offense because it has too many other places to defend,fkn drr!
      Jokes on you bozo!

    • Traiano Welcome

      Ahh, the old “won’t last a week” lie we hear over and over again. Even the mighty USA couldn’t take pathetic little Iraq in a week.

      The cost is too high, even if the Turkish army is materially larger, better supplied it still cannot invade Syria without risking massive internal disintegration.

      With the army bogged down in Syria, the Kurds will make merry in Istanbul.
      If the entire Turkish army invaded Syria they will remain bogged down there for decades while the security and economy of Turkey collapses around Erdogan’s ears.
      If the Syrian state falls, anti-Turkish guerrilla forces will use the resulting chaos to form insurgencies into Turkey.

      In short, Turkey is aware that they cannot commit more than a fraction to any action in Syria, without risking internal collapse.
      This is why “the entire Turkish Army” will never enter Syria, and there will be no beating of Assad’s army by the Turks.

  • Xanatos

    Can turkey commit its army to invade Syria?

    No. Not even half.

    The Greeks army massed near Istanbul stands ready as a pistol you recover hagia Sophia. So the Turks can’t reduce forces there.

    The massive Kurdish area, 20 million strong, requires martial presence to prevent an immediate uprising. There’s half the Turkish army pinned down right there.

    The Turks have miltary operations in cyprus, they can’t retreat from there either.

    The Turks have Miltary occupation in Afrin and northrrn Syria and northern iraq.

    • Karen Bartlett

          • Karen Bartlett

            I’ll look it up. But I think I’ve read about this before. Even if they were communist, they were fighting for Greece and had the support of the Greek people. Until the Brit gov’t took steps to undermine their influence.

    • Xanatos

      Even if turkey sends 100,000 troops, that will be extremely expensive for them to fight a prolonged conflict, and it will be a prolonged conflict. Because that will trigger an equal amount of forces from Iraqi and Irani militias entering Syria to stop them.

      And it remains to be seen if turkey even has 100,000 elite troops. Considering the purges on the Turkish side and the combat experience in the Syrian side, I wouldn’t be surprised if turkey relies in alqaeda to act as their elite division to spearhead their attacks. The Turkish soldier may be relegated to rear guard out of necessity.

      • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

        Forget about money since banks (jews) are happy to support any type of war, lending money to both sides of the conflict. Do not worry, if Russia takes the right decision, it can dissappear Turkey forces from Idlib in a single day.

    • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

      Lets be a bit more realistic, as much as I would like to see Konstantinopolis recovered and returned to it’s rightful owners, the people of he Hellenic Republic (AKA The Greeks), the fact remains that Greece will not invade Turkey unless it is on defence. Greece will not attack first cause Greece is not a rogue state like the Turkish regime is.
      However on other fronts such as North Cyprus where Turkey has invaded since 1974 and is an occupier with a fake state nobody recognises but the Turks, that is indeed a front where Greece along side Cyprus could take the initiative and re-unite the Greek island of Aphrodite.

      • Arch Bungle

        Greece has bigger problems on it’s hands right now. The last thing it will do is attack another NATO ‘ally’ …

        • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

          Cyprus is something achivable as things are today.
          In the AIR Greece is by far superior to the Pakistani mercenary pilots and the turks.
          NATO jet fighter exercises of the past 10 years (+) confirm that.
          The navy Greece is only just slightly behind in terms of modern frigates and in numbers the same. But the lack in number and technology is countered by the advanced skill.
          In 1996 Greece could have sunked the entire Turksih fleet at the rocks of IMIA but the USA saved the Turks.
          Those are facts.

          • Traiano Welcome

            All this may be true, but what about the current economic problems Greece is experiencing? Money powers all wars …

            retail sales growth quickened in October–November, which, coupled with consumer confidence reaching its highest in nearly two decades in Q4, point to consumer spending gaining somewhat further momentum.

            In other news, on 25 January, Fitch Ratings upgraded the country’s credit rating from BB- to BB, citing improved debt sustainability on the back of a stable political backdrop, sustained growth and fiscal prudence.
            Subsequently, 10-year government bond yields fell to all-time lows while authorities successfully launched a 15-year bond, raising EUR 2.5 billion.

            The economic recovery is set to continue this year, albeit at a very gradual pace. Private consumption is seen picking up amid sustained job market improvements while rising sentiment and tax cuts should boost investment activity.

            FocusEconomics panelists see GDP expanding 2.2% in 2020, which is up 0.1 percentage points from last month’s forecast, and 2.0% in 2021.

            ΓΕΙΑ (YA) being sort for ΥΓΕΙΑ – Hygieia (Godess of good Health) , ΜΑΣ = to us.

            But…before war there would be an ancient war dance, the Pyrihios dance. (Firy Dance).

            The Pyrrhichios or Pyrrhike dance (“Pyrrhic dance”; Ancient Greek: πυρρίχιος or πυρρίχη, but often misspelled as πυρρίχειος or πυρήχειος) was the best known war dance of the Greeks.

            It was probably of Dorian origin and practiced at first solely as a training for war.

            According to ancient sources, it was an armed dance…dance by the Spartans the Pontic Greeks the Cretens and the Cypriots and everywhere where Greeks are.

    Turkey’s ass is going to get whooped if they don’t leave Syria’s real estate with their terrorist gangsters.

    Terrorist gangster rebel factions have been running “autonomous dummy governments” generating financial gains via illegal means – extorting, looting and causing suffering living conditions against Syria’s citizens for too long of a time, and must be stopped immediately.

    …terrorist gangster rebel factions holding their “flag of thugs” can be used as target practice by the TIGERS. GO ANNIHILATE THEM SAA !!!

    Syria’s flag is a horizontal tricolour of red, white, and black; charged with two green stars at the centre. Any “autonomous dummy governments” that wave any other flag is subject to an arrest or elimination.

    Given the rather pathetic performance of the Turks and their pet Jihadists, I don’t think Syria or Russia has too much to worry about. If Erdogan is stupid enough to follow through on his ultimatum, the Turks will learn a hard lesson paid for in blood.

    Whatever the opinion of the commentators here might be: It is for sure and visible for everybody with working brain cells:
    Erdogan s Turkeys are siding with the most brutal entities alive (beheaders, rapers, landgrabbers, human rights violators…) and are not ashamed about it. And he is also not ashamed to demand Syrian troops to get out of their own area that he wants to conquer for his wonderful islamistic Turkeydom. Obviously he is sure that some mighty powers will come to assist him in case of failing of his amazing military guys. Will it be Israel? Or USA? Probably not China…or Russia :)
    Bottomline: Turkey is going to take itself out of the community of civilized and honorable nations on the planet.

    Idlib, home to all of the jiheadists given safe passage from liberated areas of Syria – to go to Idlib…unironically.
