Militants Shell Army Positions In Lattakia And Aleppo Despite New Deconfliction Agreement Reached By Turkey And Russia

On September 21, the Russian Centre for the Reconciliation of Opposing Sides in Syria announced that unknown militants shelled several positions of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the northern Lattakia countryside and the northwestern part of the city of Aleppo during the last 24 hours.

“Eight Syrian servicemen were wounded as a result of attack against Qalaat Marza, Lattakia province,” the Russian reconciliation center revealed in a statement.

Furthermore, the SAA shoot down an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), which was flying over its positions in the northern Lattakia countryside. The UAV was either armed or carrying out an observation mission.

These attacks came only five days after the announcement of the Russian-Turkish deconfliction agreement on the governorate of Idlib. Under the deal, a 15-20km demilitarized zone will be established around the northwestern governorate.

The attacks in northern Lattakia and western and southwest Aleppo were likely aimed at sabotaging the Russian-Turkish agreement because these regions will be a part of the demilitarized zone.

    Small scale fighting like this will continue indefinitely. Russia and the SAA could adopt the IDF’s approach and hold HTS responsible for any attack across the border no matter who it’s from.

    Only a fool or Pangloss can believe that the 12-20km demilitarized zone will be implemented, when the al Qaeda in Syria already said that they refuse it. Who is going to force them to get out of there, the Turks? They are going to attack, with their proxies, the Nusra Front? And aren’n the takfiris of Nusra also their proxies?

    As long as the US, the UK, Israel, or Saudi Arabia keeps supplying and paying the militants they will keep trying to escalate the war. On thing is certain and that is any promise by any of those nations or their mercs will never be kept. Syria and Russia will just have to press on in order to the liberate the nation from the axis terrorists insurgents before there will be any real peace.

    • Joe Dickson

      All of the US money goes to the YPG. It is Turkey and Qatar that are paying and supplying those rebels.

  • Icarus Tanović

    SAA should fire back, and bomb them well.

    Turks get to ‘blood’ their special forces with a little help from their friends. PPK/YPG, take note.

  • leon mc pilibin

    They are looking for an excuse to release their Hellwood fake chemical attack videos,so they want retaliation from the SAA to achieve this aim,,ZIONIST ;SATANIC SCUMBAGS:

  • Carol Davidek-Waller

    Now why isn’t that a surprise. Because the invading terrorist army has violated every cease fire and deconfliction zone since this conflict began?

    • Brad Isherwood

      But deconfliction zone agreements are sound geostrategic plays.
      Grinning Lavrov says so…
      Russian leaders are Experten Chess players.
      Turks get Pipeline,…S 400 and agricultural trade with Russia.
      Maybe Putin will get …Terrorist Free* …labels on Turkish agriculture.

      deconfliction agreement = You get to keep what you steal.
      It does…..Just ask Israel and US.
