In Video: Russian Helicopters Make Low Pass Near Turkish-Occupied Jarabulus In Northern Syria

Support SouthFront

Early on August 27, Russian military helicopters made a low pass near the Turkish-occupied town of Jarabulus in the northern countryside of Syria’s Aleppo.

Opposition activists shared a video of the Russian helicopters, a Mi-8 and a Mi-35, passing near Jarabulus, right along the line separating the town from Kurdish-held areas to the east and the border with Turkey to the north.

The Turkish military and its Syrian proxies occupied Jarabulus and its outskirts in August, 2017 after a fierce battle with ISIS.

Earlier this month, a delegation of the Russian military visited the villages of Shukh and Buraz, which are held by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), east of Jarabulus. The delegation inspected a number of sites shelled by Turkish forces.

Attacks by Turkish forces on SDF-held areas east of Jarabulus increased following the withdrawal of U.S. forces last year.

Russia may be planning to establish a foothold in east of Jarabulus in cooperation with the SDF. Such a move would limit Turkey’s influence in the region.

The SDF are part of the problem


A huge part at that, Kurdish terrorist invaders and the SDF/US terrorists control about twice as much land as the Turks/ISIS/al-Qaeda in Idlib and the north.


They ARE just another subhuman Proxy ‘Terrorist/Mercenary’ faction sponsored groomed and armed by the AmeriCunts their NATO-Mafia + ZioNAZI/IsraHell, like AQ, ISIS + White Helmets, with the goal to destroy Syria and destabilize the Region on behest of their Pimps.


Indeed, history needs to be taken into consideration and the Ottoman empire is the former great power of the Levant but adjusting Russian policy to accomodate neo-Ottoman terrorists when they haven’t even broken NATO, ordered the US and its nukes to GTFO of Turkey, stopped supporting ISIS/al-Qaeda types or tried to join with Iran to achieve a Sunni-Shia consensus in the Muslim world against Ziocorporatist petrodollar Wahhabis serving Ziojews and Anglo-Western globalist designs just proves even further Turkish scum is not to be trusted as reliable geopolitical partners.

That’s why I found it quite good that Turks discovered major gas reserves in the Black sea, Erdogan said they’ll be net exporters soon, and the Kremlin won’t be able to use the “business and trade” bullshit to justify giving Turks so many geopolitical advantages a large swathes of Syrian land.


In modern warfare nothing is more valuable than intel A satellite recon and snooping around with the drones or choppers after that. Verifying around suspicious places, located over the satellite already.

with each passing day I realize that Russia has in fact betrayed Syria in terms of Idlib as Syrian territory

Porc Halal

from the beginning of the mongol invasion and the formation of the evil ottoman empire on the former Byzantine territories, we have a turkish problem (question) … until this problem is eliminated this region will not enjoy peace and prosperity ….
