Veritas Vincit

There are reports that indicate Turkey is preparing to employ electronic warfare systems against Syrian and Russian anti-aircraft systems [1] and to more broadly establish an allied no-fly zone over Syrian territories [2-3] to facilitate freedom of operations in Syria by Turkish aviation. The potential neutralisation of Syrian and Russian anti-aircraft systems ‘through proxies’ is also reported [4-5].

In response, it is reasonable to assume Russian military analysts would also be preparing to neutralise Turkish anti-aircraft systems (including Russian supplied systems) and MLRS assets that pose a threat in the event of a significant escalation. The mobilisation of MLRS assets by both sides further indicates preparations for associated operations [4-6].

Already the targeting of military forces by parties involved is evident [5,7,8]. Syria has recently authorised the downing of foreign military aircraft violating its airspace [9].

While negotiations continue, actions are replacing words. Turkey (backed by the US and key NATO powers) is intent on pursuing its illegal actions in Syria (aggression under International Law) through military mechanisms. This would necessitate reciprocal responses.

Syria does not want its nation to be continuously destabilised (the anti-Assad coalition maintaining support of militants affiliated with groups listed as terrorist organisations with Western bloc MSM continuing to act as the propaganda arm of these terrorist affiliated militants) or partitioned (as Turkey, the US, Saudi Arabia, Israel, etc. seek).

De-confliction agreements, while seeking to prevent direct kinetic conflicts with illegally involved foreign powers, will unfortunately largely remain counter-productive, merely serving to allow the reinforcement of militants by their foreign backers. Russia similarly cannot allow these militants to continue launching foreign assisted attacks against its military facilities.

The liberation of Syrian territories is a priority for the Syrian government and the Russian Federation. As negotiations are proving to be counter-productive and Turkey is intensifying its offensive proxy warfare operations, responsive military solutions will likely be required. This is an outcome the Russian Federations was clearly seeking to avoid however if hostile actions are taken, there is little option but to fight back. While efforts at diplomacy to minimise escalation will remain a priority, certain hostile actions will logically necessitate adequate responses (as inadequate responses only serves to embolden adversaries).

Note: The Russian Federation and Syria are in compliance with International Law. The Western bloc and its allies that claim to champion a ‘rules-based order’ continue to violate International Law and in the process clarify their claims (and propaganda) are founded in hypocrisy. Indeed, recognising the successive wars of aggression against strategic opponents, assassinations, bribery and extortion, corrupt relations with installed political assets, theft of resources, etc., by the US-NATO-Israel-allied bloc, it is clear this bloc has embraced behaviour associated with organised crime.

1. Turkey tried to attack Russian S-400s at Khmeimim airbase with Koral

“The Turkish military tried to attack Russian air defense systems at the Khmeimim airbase. Avia.pro had a photograph at its disposal depicting the deployment of Turkish electronic warfare systems in the Syrian province of Idlib, with the aim of attacking Russian air defense systems located at the Khmeimim airbase. We are talking about powerful Koral systems, with the help of which the Turkish military intends to interfere with Russian air defense in order to use its aircraft to strike at SAA positions in Aleppo and Idlib…… Ankara does not officially comment on the transfer of its electronic warfare funds to Syrian territory, however, Russia may well perceive such attacks on its air defense as aggression and destroy the Turkish electronic warfare system with a targeted strike.”

2. Fighting mounts as Washington backs Turkish attack on Syria, Russia
By Alex Lantier, 21 February 2020

“According to the Independent’s Turkish edition, Ankara has informed NATO of its plans to invade Syria and has requested that NATO enforce a no-fly zone in targeted areas ahead of the offensive. Since Russian warplanes are offering close air support to Syrian troops across the region, this means asking NATO to shoot down Russian planes to ensure that they do not threaten Turkish troops. According to a Bloomberg News report, Turkey has asked Washington for Patriot missile batteries to shoot down Russian warplanes.”

3. Turkish Defense Ministry: S-400 will be used against Syria and Russia

4. Turkey handed militants long-range MLRS capable of hitting the Khmeimim air base and S-300 and S-400 positional areas

5. Turkish missiles launched on Russian military in Syria

“A little more than a day ago, the Russian military air base “Khmeimim”, located in Syria, was subjected to rocket fire from the so-called de-escalation zones. According to sources, at least 7 missiles were fired at the Russian military, while the attack was carried out by the city of Jisr al-Shugu, where militants were spotted several hours before. Given the distance to the front line in this direction, experts note that only Turkish T-122 Sakarya MLRS, which use long-range missiles, could attack the Russian military airbase, and the attack on the Russian military airbase was made after a statement of readiness was made break all existing agreements on Syria with Russia.”
