Erdogan Says He Asked Trump To Support Idlib Operation With Munitions

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan revealed on March 4 that he had asked U.S. President Donald Trump to aid Turkey’s military operation in the Syrian region of Greater Idlib by supplying Turkish forces there with munitions.

Speaking to reporters, Erdogan said he hopes that the upcoming Moscow summit will result in an “immediate ceasefire” in Greater Idlib.

The Turkish military and its Syrian proxies, including several al-Qaeda-affiliated factions, are now carrying out a large-scale military operation in Greater Idlib against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies. So far, Turkish forces have failed to make any significant gains.

A day earlier, U.S. special representative for Syria James Jeffrey said that his country is willing to give Turkish forces ammunition as well as humanitarian assistance in Greater Idlib.

While Erdogan is apparently trying to take advantage of Joffrey’s offer, a source in the State Department denied that the U.S. will provide Ankara with such a support. The source told the Monitor that the U.S. is still considering a Turkish request for assistance.

Turkey is apparently trying to drag the U.S. into the Greater Idlib crisis to step up pressure on Russia. Moscow is actively supporting the SAA in the region.

Considering that Turkish UAVs dont use American weapons, Turkey seems to prepare for big stocks for F-16 munitions….

Go on SAA and allies: crash the jihadis and their donator who is begging itself for munitions: https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/syrian-army-retakes-initiative-in-southern-idlib-launches-new-attack/ turk turds are street thiefs – nothing else.


No. You asked for Patriot air defence, air coverage and no fly zone for Russian-Syrian planes and begged for NATO involvment. All you received was a promise for ammunition from this Jeffry guy.

And ammunition for what? I thought all they use was Turkish made.

Great work!

The Wahhabi Erdo already have Patriots, but we all know how much these helps. At least in Yemen, when Yemenis counter attack to SA.

God, this is so damn embarrassing for Erdogan. Asking for aid from a guy like this?


Tudor Miron

Funny Erdo :) He asked for air support and air defence but was offered munition only. Now he boasts that this is exactly what he asked for.

So we are doing the same thing we accused Soleimani of doing, supplying munitions to kill foreign troops but it’s okay because they are Syrian and Iranian soldiers.

Dragging global powers into direct conflict with each other is only a few steps away. History shows nations pay little attention to reality even when defeat is the most likely prospect. In denial they choose war. https://www.ghostsofhistory.wordpress.com/

The Russian Federation is a rogue state, trying to recover some of its ancient “superpower” luster.

Erdogan asked for Trump help against Russia and Syria and he is again going to Moscow with double tongue and double face to pretend as good guy.Just to be settled in Syria with demarcation zone while his Jets attack Syrian jets and forces from Hatay province.Putin should avoid the meeting or just attend it with the delegation whom Erdogan disregarded.While their attend under authoritarian command.

Erdogan is really stupid. How can he refuses the advised of his commanders and expects them to help with F35 jets.

Chris Chuba

If we are supplying him w/ammo then we are also giving him surveillance support w/AWACs and other EW assets. The Russians would have to be really naive to think otherwise but …

Fuckturkius Sraloukranius

Fighters for democracy and human right must attack turkey from inside and sink it in blood. Turks must feel the pain they cause to the Syrian people.


Supplying ammunition and humanitarian aid. Humanitarian aid includes: satellite coordinates of Syrian forces, AWACS targeting systems up in the air, satellite intel, electronic intel, money, mobile hospital units, diggers and excavators.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

If Erdogan can’t get everything he wants from Putin today he’s going to go straight to Trump and give him everything he wants, and then when he’s done that Trump’s going to give Erdogan everything he wants. Patriots, weapons, vehicles and equipment, intel, financial aid, diplomatic support, reduction of sanctions, possibly even a no fly zone, whatever he wants, anything to pull Erdogan away from Putin God help Syria.
