2 syrian airforce fighter jets were shotdown in idlib …both pilots are safe one with minor injuries both were taken to hospital…meantime russkies are no were to be seen.

Ayman

Confirmed by SANA:

Two SU-24 shot down.

Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

Su-24 is not fighter jets and each plane have two pilots (Technically one pilot and one bomber/navigator).

So the type of plane does not match and the number of aircrews doesn either.

Alex Cabrera

IF RUSSIAN DO NOT PROVIDE AIR COVER
I THINK SYRIA SHOULD PROVIDE IT ON THEIR FOOT SOLDIERS

BEFORE ITS TOO LATE

POLITICS IS INVOLVE NOW

Ayman

Why?
Is it not anymore easy for you like throwing
Barrel Bombs from Helicopter to civil areas???

World_Eye

There is no innocent civilians in Idlib only whores of Jihadists.

Alex Cabrera

ITS TIME FOR THE BARREL BOMBS AGAIN

Samuel Vanguard

the Deadline is past over SAA should prepare for TAF full throttle assault

Free man

That probably won’t happen until Putin and Erdogan’s meeting.

Free man

Apparently, it was a grave mistake to kill the 30 Turkish soldiers.
Erdogan will demand from Putin that the SAA withdraw from Idlib. Assad will have to consent if not the war in all parts of Syria will start all over again.

François

Russia is currently sending war ships to Syria armed with Kaliber Missiles. These are guided missiles with 300 to 2600 km range depending on version… Very serious threat for Turkish backed forces on the ground.
Russia will keep puting pressure on Erdogan, and don’t forget turkish public opinion is going more and more upset with Erdogan Syrian war… Wait and see…

Free man

The Turks are very nationalistic.
Until the 30 soldiers were killed, Erdogan was humiliated every day in Syria. As soon as he started striking the SAA his popularity in Turkey rose.

Pork

Wait a couple weeks…lol

Who cares

All of Turkey is behind the army and President Erdogan now. A war has always united Turkish people. Also ships sink when they get hit. Keep thinking that Russia can use those ships and get away with it.

gryzor84

1 – at best, only hardcore, die-hard Erdogan supporters are behind his overt efforts at overturning the Idlib campaign in favor of Sunni Islamists linked with Al-Qaeda, which now means less than half the Turkish population, if the latest elections are of any indication.

2 – you thinking that Turkey can win a conventional war against a fully-deployed Russian military amassed there, which is all the funnier.

Who cares

Without doubt Turkey will win a ground and air war against russia in Syria.
How do you expect russia to deploy all the troops they need so far from their own border? Access to the black sea will be closed in case of a war.
Turkey can send reinforcements all day long.

gryzor84

“Without doubt” are you serious, armchair general ? how about the day after they take on so harshly against Russia’s deployment in Syria ? you think the Kremlin will just stay idle after such a catastrophic and decisive affront perpetrated against their core Syrian interests ? who’s going to “block access” to the black sea when the Russian navy’s submarine and surface fleet start basically wiping out every single Turkish vessel and ports they encounter in the area ? what happens when the strategic supersonic squadrons take to the air from their Engels base and start pounding every single relevant Turkish assets on the ground while Sukhois and Migs and start deploying back en masse in Kheimeim in parallel in a matter of mere hours ? Putin already warned about that years ago when drawing down its forces after the bulk of the anti-Assad Islamists were defeated. What happens when the hundreds of K-55,Khinzals and dozens of Iksanders deployed in significant numbers in Syria itself start flying to their targets and wiping anything of importance on the border with Idlib ? what is the Turkish ariforce going to do against the full measure of the Russian air-defense apparatus at sea and ground once it’s activated with a fire-at-will rules of engagement ? it will be quite different from taking pot shots against isolated Syrian Pantsyrs here and there, rest assured it will be another beast altogether and the Turkish brass knows where to stop. I would LOVE to see the Turks dare and try to blockade anything Russian after they’ve done what’s needed to unleash Moscow in full force against themselves. You are beyond delusional my gosh it’s unbelievable. The Turks blockading the black sea and the Russians just taking it. Earth to “who cares”, wake the heck up, this is reality , not your cardboard wargame.

Who cares

Nice rant, oil is at $50 and dropping.

gryzor84

Nice useless post. A good trolling to you and goodbye.

François

This would be typical Turkish presumptuous “invincibility” fantasy.
Unfortunately Erdogan is facing much opposition from inside and remains verys isoltated diplomatically. Without Putin, he would have been dethroned in last coup intempt…

World_Eye

So stupid Russia backed off, let the Turkish drones to swarm over Idlb and bombard the Syrian Army, and everything that SAA took in the last 2 weeks is lost again. What a bullshit.

Ayman

What should Russia do? Start a war with Turkey?

From Russian Journalist Maxim Suchkov:
https://www.al-monitor.com/

Ret. Col. Mikhail Khodarenok:
Turkey has enough military might to overrun the Syrian army within days.
“Should Moscow choose not to intervene it will be a political-military fiasco. The Kremlin as a geopolitical player in the Middle East will be done,”….
Yet he equally cautioned against open Russian military engagement with Turkey, warning,
“Turkey will have an overwhelming superiority in personnel and military hardware.
Russia is too far from the theater of operations and won’t have the time or logistical capabilities” to bring in the personnel or equipment needed and “In order to win this war, Russia would need to transfer a phenomenal amount of aircrafts, fuel and ammunition.”

Game Over

It looks like they are going to allow them to regain some of the territory back so the situation can come down.

Lone Ranger

You hasbarats are hopeless ;)

World_Eye

Yes true Turkey is 80 million people NATO state, with a lot of equipment and new stuff, drones, heavy self-propelled howitzers F-16s I know that they have enough if they want to literally get to Assad in Damascus I know that, they had a lot of weapons, but low morale to fight tho, look Syrian poor soldiers, they have no helmets, no bullet prof vests, no uniforms, no descent weapons, of course the fact is that, we cannot compare these 2 states at military level. Everything that Syria has its from Russia. But in order for all this Turkish assault to be countered Russia had literally to enter in open conflict with Turkey, so shoot ballistic missiles, to shoot cruise missiles, what is worst Russia gave these Turks very good air defense the S-400 so if Russian Jet or missiles were entering Turkish space would have been destroyed by the very S-400 that Russia sold them. I mean in long term war or conflict Russia can overhaul Turkey very fast with min 3 months preparation from Russian side, Russia is very close to Turkey tho, just the black sea some 200km. Russia is one of the strongest military in the world.

ivan cohen

S-400 probably can be crushed very easily from russians, because they build that weapons and they have all the countermeasures to enable that technology (if not stupid!!)

World_Eye

Yes maybe true, but for the Russians to attack deep in Turkish territory that must be declared war am I right or?

ivan cohen

NO, i DON’T MEAN THAT. I want explain how russians can stop every attempt of turks of using s-400 . Then I think turks aren’t able yet to use effectively the system because they lack completely crews able to use s-400 effectively. They need much more time to be effective while uses the system.
Russia don’t wants to attack deep turks, not in turk territories. Eventually turks must be very aware in sovereign territories of Syria, which they occupies breaking every rules of international laws. So Russia because invited by Syria can make whatever necessary to send home a rogue army (and their mercenary which are terrorists) and their dogs that are also making ethnic cleansing in that territories.
The crazy idea of creating a new ottoman empire, or the “greater IsraHELL” which mean the same of lebensraum are igniting a worse scenario of ever in Middle East, then we are seeing ammerrecans occupying Syrian sovereign territories with absolutely any excuses and the acting of Saudis, EAU and others (in this case very criminal regimes which wants to crush Iranians getting the exact opposite results) which are armed by western rogue nations (UK, France, US and many others), are determining a very dangerous result, all of them wants to decide of future of sovereign nations and their populations. In Yemen we are assisting at the attempt of putting a president in charge despite people wants another thing……..
It’s time that every people in the world must determine his own future even have external interferences (this is an euphemism), we know very well what interferences nation as Usa has made for centuries all over the world.
Probably also Russia wants to impose his interests, but in Syria they are the only invited to stay by a sovereign government regularly elected by his people (along Iran), the others must go home, soon!

World_Eye

I believe, this is my personal opinion, that since this Trump guy came to office in the US since then, the world went like crazy and all down into shit. I dunno but that’s how I feel, they US became very rogue nation with Trump, that’s it, Period. All this is happening because of that Yellow brain Trump, who thinks that he runs the Trump towers instead of a fucking country. LOL.

Game Over

Wait a few days until the portable AA systems come from Iran and the drones will start dropping like flies

Kananda

will come… how? iraq does not allow. the airspace over syria is controlled by yanks.

Lone Ranger

Airspace over Syria is controlled by Russia.

ivan cohen

COMPLETELY!! and ussa can’t try to do nothing if wants to come home . . . . .
let see what happens in Afghanistan, they maken a deal with taliban officials and announced their coming to their comfortable houses.
In Syria, ammerrecans are in a very bad position and Iraq is closing every route for them, so support of Syrian bases will finish soon. Then their position will became very difficult in future, in spite of that, they must take down their heads and stay very calm, they can’t have space to act in every way

YIANNIS INTER

Yes last 2 days this you write is truth
BUT
Russians wait ships to cover air in base and Syria
Now ships with calibr is there and will return to previous SAA status
Turks if not cose bosporus have no future with Russia ………….

Kananda

johnny and what will you write, when after arrive of ships nothing will happen?

YIANNIS INTER

I write with view in map
Look how near sea is Russian base
If 40 F-16 HITTED BASE ?OR BOMBED FROM TURKISH SOIL?
Look how near is Turkey and how far is Russia ……..

Kananda

in this case russia would use nuclear weapons. this is clearly in doctrine. 1 missile on Mersine. turkey would immediately leave syria

and nato would not do anything.

closing of bosphorus = also war.

turkey has giant economical problems. ankara can not enter in expensive or prolonged war.

my opinion is, europe should take back constantinopol, north cyprus and izmir from turkey. and create kurdisan on turkish soil,

YIANNIS INTER

My poor opinion :
If Turkey close Vosporus will win in Syria If not war will take years …….

cactus

turkey doesn’t have full military control on the ground over the pkk kurdish regions they only have air control and the only way to enter and access turkish military facilites and bases there is by helicopters and by air … the syrian arab army and allies need to arm the pkk terrorists with manpads and air deffence systems, almost half of turkish eastern kurdish region will get out of turkish control …turkey is breaking red lines in idlib and the saa needs to break them elsewhere …turkey weakest link are the kurds in the east

Jim Bim

Russians retreat makes military no sense……unless its a betrayal.

Ayman

What should Russia do? Start a war with Turkey?

Jim Bim

Today another huge Turkish convoy crossed the border……without being stopped.

ivan cohen

do you really believe Syria is so scarce? you not remember there are also Iranian soldiers? and Do you think really Iraq remain calm doing nothing?
Turks must stay at home and come home, they can’t do much to Syrian sovereign army, and their heroic people, which crushed mercenaries backed by americans, turks, Eau & saudi criminals.
Turks is an army of paper
