On June 6, the Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP) news agency, known as Islam Awazi, released photos showing the terrorist group’s fighters shelling positions of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the northern Hama countryside with a Turkish-made mortar cannon.

The mortar was identified as HY-12, a licensed copy of the French MO-120-RT [Mortier de 120mm Rayé Tracté Modèle F1]. These mortars are manufactured by Turkey’s MKEK. The 120mm mortar has a range of more than 8km and can fire 6-10 rounds per minute.

The TIP is one of the biggest al-Qaeda branches in Syria with more than 3,000 Uyghurs fighters. These terrorists are occupying many settlements in northern Lattakia and northwestern Idlib, including the strategic city of Jisr al-Shughur.

This was not the first time when Turkish-made HY-12 mortars were spotted with militants in northern Hama. Last month, fighters of the National Front for Liberation (NFL) were seen with this type of mortar. Turkey is believed to be the supplier.

Both the TIP and the NFL are supporting the ongoing large-scale military operation of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) in northern Hama.

    Do you read this Putin ? Turkish made mortar !!! I hope Russia stops pleasing Turkey for good and to give strong air support to ground troops and the offensive on Idlib. No mercy to terrorists.

    • HardHawk

      not a chance of that Russia need turks more than turks need Russia.

      • gustavo

        I does not matter who needs who. Russia must stop pleasing Turkey and initiates full support for ground troops offensive at Idlib (without any ceasefire agreement).

  • Edvin R

    One month and 100 000 airstrikes later the elite forces of the SAA have managed to contest few villages from a second grade militia in the middle of nowhere that go back and forth on daily basis…What a glorious army…

    • mhtsaropinigitakis

      you do realize that those 2nd grade militias you talk about are top notch equipped by turkey and others and have militants from all over the world…also they had a typical protection from russia not to be attacked. meanwhile Syrian army is getting bomber by Israel all the time ..by NATO warships and suffering ISIS infiltrator attacks non stop…still manages to win the war and claim all Syria…so better remove that kebab from you anus little Turks cause it is already hurting i can see.

    • DaBoiiiii

      Cuz at least they are winning, not getting whipped like Americans whipped during occupation of Iraq and Israeli occupation and invasion of Lebanon between 1982-2000 and then 2006. Saudi and Emirati get whipped in Yemen. Ukraine gets whipped by Eastern forces, and Britain can’t even BREXIT. Western allied states getting whipped left and right. Israel has to call a ceasefire with a completely blockaded Gaza.

      No amount of talking shit will save you lot. The momentum is on our side. War in Syria is drawing to a close, and you guys are happy about some consolation victories. War will then pick up in Yemen even more than now to destroy the Saudis.

  • d’Artagnan

    Well, this should hardly come as a surprise, as Turkey has been the main sponsor and conduit of terrorism in Syria. The headchoppers report directly to Erdogan and the Turkish military, which recruits, trains, feeds and arms them. It was not that long ago that Erdogan’s son, son in law and family were directly selling the looted oil from Syria and buying weapons for these vile terrorists. Now as SAA, Russia and Iran squeeze the Turkish proxies, the Turks are becoming more desperate and brazen in the support for terrorism.

    • Xoli Xoli

      True always Turkey rearms but never attack terrorists. Know were are the weapons going to.Obviously to HTS=ISIS =FSA=NFL.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Great opportunity open full scale war on HTS.Expel Erdogan from de-escalation zones and Astana agreements.Russia let go Iran and Hizbollah to join Tiger forces on ground to turn the tide.10000 bomb 24 hours on targets and still HTS come out strongly with armour cars.Unless we say terrorists are hiding in Turkey observation post then I will agree.Keep on attacking HTS and FSA =ISIS.

  • HardHawk

    guess this article here is an answer to A SLOW MOTION, who ask me if I have prove that terrorists are armed with turkish weapons. Soon he also have an answer that the so called terrorist are regular turkish soldiers lead by the grey wolves ertoklans private army and MIT.

    • Edvin R

      I posted a picture few days ago from an earlier attack where some of the soldiers seem to have turkish specialforce equipment…trolls here went balistic.

      • Mike

        Troll that is your role jihadi and turkish poster.

    • Brother Ma

      Why is that hard to believe?

      • HardHawk

        Believe is for religions that are based on blind faith. I know what I am saying based on fact nothing to do with believe but some here is where they base their conclusions not fact but what they believe.

  • Barba_Papa

    I suspect that Russia and Turkey have made a deal of sorts about Idlib. The two countries will continue to work on whatever else they were working on, in exchange Russia will turn a blind eye to Turkey still giving the Jihadis weapons and support, and Turkey in return will not intervene directly in Idlib.

    • Brother Ma

      I agree. Shht deal for Syria.

    • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

      i dont understand why russia keeps trying to make deals with turkey. what does turkey have that russia needs or wants? and whats the guarantee turkey wont get directly involved in idlib? i dont trust them at all

      • goingbrokes

        It’s not about trust. Syria must avoid a shooting war with Turkey at the moment, so that they have something in common when it comes to dealing with the Kurds. So while you don’t have a shooting war, you might as well talk to them and see how that goes. It is about limiting Turkish support for some of the jihadist groups. It’ll never be 100% result but anything is better than nothing. If a hundred jihadists leave Syria it is worth talking. But it is NATO that is not allowing them to leave and is putting up the money for support, and Turkey is enmeshed with all that up to their necks, and can’t get out easily.
        Russia don’t want Turkey hostile because it complicates things, and the Black Sea area peace is vital for Russia.

      • Barba_Papa

        Driving a giant wedge between a NATO country and the rest of NATO is a HUGE feat for Russia, a major diplomatic coup. Not to mention that Turkey occupies major strategic real estate, if only be controlling access to the Black Sea, a major important area to the Russians? Also the more influence Russia has on Turkey, the bigger the chance the war in Syria comes to a conclusion more favorable to Russia? I see only pluspoints for Russia to have Turkey on its side.

        As for not trusting Turkey, that’s 100% logical. I don’t trust Erdogan one bit. To say Erdogan is an untrustworthy charlatan is an insult to charlatans. I hate that fucker with a fiery passion. But I understand that Putin has to play nice to that piece of shit (no insult to shit intended). As for Turkey getting directly involved in Syria, doubtful. If Erdogan did that, cursed be his name, he would burn every bridge that he has with Putin. And I don’t think he wants to do that. Play Russia against the US, yes, but you can’t do if there’s nothing left to play any more. I reckon that Turkish troops might become more active, as in position themselves between the SAA and the Jihadi’s, to passively protect them. But to actively fight the SAA, that I don’t think so. And of course, as we’ve seen a couple of times already, they make for excellent targets of convenience to send a message to that dog Erdogan (no insult to dogs intended) by ‘accidentally’ shelling them.

    Solution: SAA needs to Tochka every single torki observation post
    SOLVED :)

  • Mike

    Yet when these jihadis offensives run out of steam and SAA take the initiative and start retaking territory back to its lawful government, you have the sudden disaperance of turkish and jihadi social media keyboard warriors like edwina r.
