    I know turkey seems to exaggerate numbers. But dam did they just massacre 70 soldiers.

    • Ronald

      Let us hope not, but have read they got 4 Russians 58 SAA, and flew an F16 in Syrian airspace to do it. There will be hell to pay if it’s true.
      Likely just for Turkish consumption, although Erdogan is in Ukraine slagging “the Russian annexation of Crimea”.

  • James Kira

    Turkey is in a tough spot balancing its Islam and Diplomacy and treaties with the kufar.

    But at least Turkey has not sold out on its Creator(swt) as iran has.

    Rebel lack of aerial power has made civilians vulnerable to attacks by kufar.

    But only Belief is important to Rebels, and iran will never be able to recover from irans apostacy.

    • Issam

      But the mujaheddin are meeting with the kuffar to give them money and weapons in order to kill they brothers in islam… that means they waging jihad for the kuffar not allah 😥, they are now are burning with abu lahab and fir’awn.

      • James Kira

        Theres a Hadith that says when one claims so and so is burning, that Allah(swt) will rescue that so and so and put that accuser in its place, ahaha.

        • Issam

          no acutally the hadith says if you say that another person is an apostate or a kafir it’s make you the kaffir xD

          • James Kira

            It says that if you accuse wrongly.

          • Issam

            “iran will never be able to recover from irans apostacy”

          • James Kira

            Yes, it happened 3 times.

          • Issam

            ok you convinced me

          • Issam
          • James Kira

            This is a kufars gif, someone living with, behaving like, and allied with christians jews and kufar.

          • Issam

            what do you think is my punishment should be for sharing this GIF ?

          • James Kira

            Imam Ali(as) says if you laugh you are stupid.

            And Allah(swt) says that sarcasm is from shaytan(la).

            And Prophet Muhammad(saw) says that even the smallest thing can have the largest consequences.

            And this is my point about iranians and their allies, that they overlook many things about Fiqh.

          • Issam

            Allah(swt) says that sarcasm is from shaytan, show me a verse that says that.

          • James Kira

            There are many, starting with the first Surah, first aya, first word, first letter.

          • Issam

            ???????????????????
            I said show me a verse that says “Allah(swt) says that sarcasm is from shaytan”, and how the prophets explained that verse if it exist.
            :)

          • James Kira

            I just showed you the entire AlQuran.

          • Issam

            hah ! got you troll

          • James Kira

            Plus theres the Hadith that talks about kufar always asking for proof from AlQuran (because they dont Believe).

          • Issam

            hahaha you got busted you zionist troll, your words make no sense.

          • James Kira

            My not making sense to you doesnt mean Im a troll or kike, but it means that you dont know much about Shia AHadith.

            Debating kikes is similar they neither believe care to understand nor know anything Abrahmic(as). (because theyre all kufar).

          • James Kira

            Plus Ive accused you of apostacy 3x and will take it to my grave, InShahAllah(swt), so I owe you nothing.

          • Issam

            Imam Ali(as) says if you laugh you are stupid, that’s straight out of the saudi propaganda book

          • James Kira

            I know Shia AHadith because thats what I Believe in and have Studied.

          • Issam

            Prooof !

          • James Kira

            Reference first Surah, first Aya, first word, first letter, first dot.

          • James Kira

            And you disagreeing with Imam Ali(as). My sources are from Ansarian.

          • James Kira

            Maybe you cant see who is AlYamani Zaman, but Imam Ali(as) says if you think about it a thousand times you can have certainty, and that you forgive a Friend a thousand times, and Wallahi I did that.

            I no longer have iranian friends, because iranians are apostates.

          • Issam

            i highly doubt you have any friends xD

          • James Kira

            I have many, mostly those I have never met or even seen. And I have few of whi I have met and seen, including you and your apostate and kufar allies.

    • jhon malakiat

      i strongly believe you have a smell long beard and two spot black in your forehead.

      my suggestion is its better for you to go back to your cave.

  • Friend of Russia

    Nice to see the SAA coming out of the traps laid by Russian traitors and dealing severe blows to the invading Turkish terrorists

    • Issam

      why does an Indian named Friend of Russia smearing Russia ? hmmm

  • Z.P.

    I hope (once anti-terrorist actions in Idlib finished ) that Russia will stop completely to support actively Assad.
    Since Russian promise for help was linked only with fight against terrorism and since Syria was never official Russian allay they have no obligation to Syria whatsoever.
    All that Russia gets in return is backstabbing anyways.
    Not worth it at all.
    Turkey is entirely Assad’s problem.
    US and Kurds also, IsraHell also.
    Not single Russian life should be wasted ever again in Syria.

    • Barba_Papa

      Syria was most definitely a Russian ally, and it has been so since Soviet times. Russia uses the port of Latakia for its navy and the Khmeimin air base for its air force. Russia went into this war to protect its allies and its bases, rightly fearing that if Syria had come under new Western backed management it would have lost its bases, just like it would have had Ukraine not lost control of the Crimea. And as the Crimea has shown, Russia will not just relinquish its bases. And Turkey is also Russia’s problem as it does walk a tightrope between supporting Syria to get its territory back from Turkish backed terrorists and occupation, and trying to woo Turkey away from NATO.

      Also, think of the street credit that Russia has gained with its war in Syria. The US regularly throws its allies under the bus if it no longer needs them, or thinks it can extort a better deal. The Kurds now know all about that. Russia on the other hand has stood by Syria and even expended its own blood. That makes Russia a hell of a lot more interesting and attractive then the US as a potential ally. Sure, the US can offer a better deal because it has shitloads of money and troops to offer, but you just never know with the Americans. They’re like the banks. Offer you a loan when times are good and foreclose it when times are bad.

      • Z.P.

        With all due respect and I am sincerely sorry for my (adequate) language.
        You are not telling truth at all (just like majority of the people on this forum) and you claim something that is not truth at all.
        You have no proof of any formal alliance between Russia and Syria yet you claim that they are allays !
        Provide the proof that Putin and Assad have signed document that makes military alliance between Russia and Syria and I will apologies to you.
        If you can not provide the proof than delete your anti-Russian propaganda claim that they are true formal “allays”.
        Those 2 military bases are regulated with the CONTRACT !.
        They do not give Russia obligation to liberate Syria whatsoever.

        F*** “the street credit” and f*** all beck stubbing “friends of Russia”!
        It is not worthy of single Russian life!

        Russia has wasted too many Russian lives for worthless Syria since they have NO written obligation. This should stop immediatly after Idlib !

        • javier

          russian and syrian alliance goes back decades , there is a reason they are there that most people understand

          • Z.P.

            russian and syrian alliance goes back decades” simply because you confuse USSR and Hafez al-Assad alliance with the Russia and Bashar al-Assad without alliance
            I challenge you to find when and where was signed agreement of “alliance” between Russia and Syria !
            I categorically deny existence of such document !
            Prove me wrong if you can.

          • Issam

            The fact that Russia and Syria are fighting in the same side make them allies by definition

          • Z.P.

            By subjective definition (depending on personal preferences).
            That “definition” doesn’t make any legal obligation to Russia to lose military and other resources without possibility to have any concrete advantage out of it.
            No serious self respecting country would invest so much for so little in return.
            And just based on some imaginary altruism.
            Russian Federation must respect needs and desires of their own citizens and have only their interests as absolute imperative.
            If Assad can’t liberate his country he will be just another country in history that can’t do that.
            Palestinians can’t liberate their country either…
            So who cares?
            Majority of the people doesn’t care. They don’t even see that as problem any longer.

          • Issam

            it’s not a subjective definition, it’s according to the definition of the word ally.

          • Z.P.

            Keep the word for souvenir than.
            On the level of international contracts signed by Presidents of the countries and ratified by their respective parliaments on one hand opposed to your “definition of the word” is meaningless compassion.
            Because “definition of the word” is totally invalid as legal argument.

          • jhon malakiat

            if two people fight together then that’s its an alliance or a friend. whether you have a contract or not.

            if you make a noise about legality then go fuct to yourself, moron.

          • Z.P.

            Legality is not “noise ” but only valid international parameter.
            There is no such thing as “alliance” and even less “friendship” between 2 countries without adequate documents.
            Legally it is totally non existent and non obligatory.
            Russia can hardly justify all dead Russians in Syria as it is..
            Once terrorists in Idlib are all eliminated Russian promise will be fulfilled.
            So Russia can immediately stop that adventure that is harmful for her economy.
            And send many of their forces back.
            Russia must concentrate how to help Russians in Ukraine , not Arabs in Syria.

          • Issam

            i didn’t understand the meaning of your response, why are you even arguing about this, how is the definitions of the words are invalid,plus have ever you ever seen a legal document released by the Russian-Syrian-Iranian alliance ? does that mean it doesn’t exist ?

          • Z.P.

            “i didn’t understand the meaning of your response, why are you even arguing about this”
            So which one is it?
            You must decide first : either that you did not ” understand” my words or you are asking me a question about something you pretend not to understand ?
            My argument is that Russia has NO legal obligations towards Syria beyond promised help to exterminate terrorists. Even that “promised help” was only promise and not written document of any kind.
            Once fulfilled Russia will have no other reason to actively help Syria
            Above all Russia has moral obligation to help (before anybody else ) their own population in Donbass.

            “how is the definitions of the words are invalid”
            Again…”definition of the word” have no legal value at all. It is not valid legal document. It is you who call it “alliance” maybe Putin calls it only “help”…
            Russia has arrived to Syria to help Syria to exterminate terrorist.
            That can not possibly become now obligation for Russia to liberate Syria completely, because you or some other here prefer so!
            Who cares what are you preferring?
            You are not Russians !
            Russian army is in the service of Russian nation not Syrian nation!
            If Assad cannot find enough Syrians ready to defend Syria than that is his problem not Russian problem.

            ” have ever you ever seen a legal document released that proves that there is a Russian-Syrian-Iranian alliance ? ”

            There is NO such document ! It has never existed.
            So why do you ask me about the existence of the document I never claimed to exist?
            Iran’s objectives are different and they are harmful for long lasting peace in Syria since they are turned against IsraHell.
            Russian objectives are different also because Russia is interested only in Syrian peace (if possible).
            Iran is not even candidate of “SCO” yet, so formally Russia doesn’t have any kind of alliance with Iran either.

          • James Kira

            They are intentional allies against another Sect, which makes iran a traitor.

            The language of AlQuran alone is enough to make it clear that its complete betrayal.

            the iranian regime is pure murtadeen.

          • jhon malakiat

            Hi zp

            it’s better for you to screaming and crying now because we don’t care a shit about your argument.

            go to fuck your self.

          • Z.P.

            What makes you think that ” scream and cry”?!
            I just claim that lots of people here are ordinary liars (for different reasons).
            But that will not stop the clock, since Russian help is coming to the end soon.

            I will not “go fuck my self.”
            I think that your desire and objective to have Russia forever at your disposal as yours and Assad’s personal servant can go fuck your self.
            With “friends” like you all Russia doesn’t need enemies.

          • Issam

            I’m starting to doubt you are a Russian.

          • Z.P.

            It is of no importance who I am.
            I do not understand what gives YOU and the others right to pretend that Russia must be in your service?
            That is based on what exactly?!
            On your “word” alliance and because you prefer so?
            Does any Russian has any right to have different opinion ?

            I am sure that Russians would PREFER to see Russian army helping Russian people in Donbass before anybody else.
            Why are Syrian Arabs more important than Russians in Ukraine?

          • Issam

            Don’t put words into my mouth, i didn’t say Russia must be in my service. Here’s the thing here, You were you were making positive influence here by sharing interesting news and having discussion which i was learning from, until you had an argument with Zionism=evil and with some bad comments about Putin, at that point you completely changed and started using terms like backstabbers and “allays” and some other Islamophobic words.

            To be honest, you still don’t have the full picture about the Syrian war, and if you weren’t so emotional and attack every one, you could’ve probably learned new stuff you probably never heard of, you seem like you don’t know about timeline of events that took place, and i can say that because I’ve have been following Syria from the beginning the protests.

            First of all Syria didn’t invite Russia, Iran did. Iran is the one that went to Moscow and had secret talks with the Russian leadership months before it was announced that Russia is planning to intervene in Syria, General Qasem soleimani / Saeed Jalili and Putin were present in those talks. the main points of those talks was to Unite with each other to fight the US hegemony in the middle east, fighting international terrorism was one of the ways to achieve that, starting from Syria and Iraq. the Iranian and Russian intervention didn’t come without a price, an Iranian official said that Syria have signed a portion of its oil and other natural resources to Iran, and the same goes for Russia, and continued saying that these resources would compensate all the money that is being put into helping the Syrian government fight this international terrorism and profit in the future, there his no charity here, everyone had guaranties, so liberating Syria from terrorism and the US presence is part of the agreements with the Syrian leadership, i hope you stop acting childish and go back to making positive influence here.

          • Lonesome Cowboy Burt

            Nihilist much? I see Russia as protectors of Christianity as well as for geopolitical reasons (deal with the terrorists over there rather than at home) and having military bases, ports. I don’t understand your rage. Are you a parent of someone who has died fighting in Syria in the Russian military? Lost a brother over there? Why are you taking it so personally?

          • James Kira

            And that makes asshead and iran and hezbollah traitors to Islam, and very different from Turkeys alliance with nato because Turkey only kills kurds who are allied with kikes.

        • Lonesome Cowboy Burt

          So a closet Syriaphobe? heh! Interesting.
