On March 1, opposition activists shared two videos revealing some of the losses that Turkish-backed militants had sustained as a result of recent Syrian and Russian airstrikes on Greater Idlib.

The first video shows several militants who were killed or severely injured in airstrikes on Saraqib city in southeast Idlib. The SAA launched an attack to capture the city earlier. Heavy clashes are still ongoing there.

In the second video, the dead bodies of two militants who were killed in airstrikes on the town of Sufuhon in southern Idlib can be seen. Turkish-backed militants are now carrying out a large-scale attack on SAA positions south of the town.

Earlier today, Turkey shot down two Su-24 warplanes of Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) over southern Idlib. The attack restricted the operations of Syrian warplanes. However, Russian warplanes are still highly active.

Despite the air support provided by the SyAAF and the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS), the SAA is still struggling on several fronts in Greater Idlib. Turkey and its proxies, including al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), are making steady progress in the region.

Do the makers of the IDF diapers have to pay the Kosher scam tax?

russia will show you how this works

Ziowahhabit Turkish terrorist trash needs to be killed in huge droves. 2 or 3 or 34 doesn’t make up for the losses the SAA has been suffering in these last few days of complete Russian inaction against terrorists.

Legis Legis Juscius

well russains dont have problem beating the turkish militias on the ground, on the other hand just assited in shooting down 9 turkish drones and not directly attacking turkish force and artilery, you do know thats su-24 is a light and old bomber, its not an fighter jet, still syrians holding turks pretty well

shylockracy

Syria has suffered hundreds of losses it shouldn’t have suffered if Moscow weren’t so intent on making ISISrael and Turdks happy. At this point it should be quite clear even for the blindest Putinists that since 2015, Russia has placed more importance on keeping ISISrael, Turkey and US happy than in recovering the sovereignty, a word the the Russian leadership likes to throw around a lot, of Syria.

Getting back to the previous pace SAA was keeping up in Idlib is the least Russia could do to make up a bit for their many fuckups.

Judgement

Knowledgeable observers who’ve been following developments over the past years, have long ago come to the conclusion that the SAA (including the buffoons who call themselves ‘Tigers’) is one of the most pathetic ‘fighting’ forces to have ever taken the field. Only a liar, or someone who knows nothing about power assessments, could disagree.

shylockracy

Fuckoff back to Turkey, you’re out of Khan Sheykhoun, out of Marrat al-Numan, out of Western Aleppo, and soon out of all of Idlib. 1000s of Turk terrorist rats trapped in the besieged “observation posts”, if Turks keep up their insolence, there’s gonna be a pogrom of Turkish/ISIS/al-Qaeda filth in a few hours.

russ

Ha ha good one Fudgemint

tiger forces are elite forces, yous they proved it in allepo, ghouta, deir ezzor, on the other hand turkish army mostly conscripts

Christian S

Well TAF has elite commando units but apparently theyre operatin disquised on secret mission no body knows

Vitex

well next few days will tell everything, but its clear that turks have no chance against russains , russians also and turks dont want to engage in costly war, but do not rush to judge soon we will see

Judgement

How are those two Russian-built Syrian SU-24s working right now? You know, the ones that the Turks shot down?

I always laugh when Russians, and their allies, flap their lips about wonderful Russian weapons systems…right up until they get annihilated by western weapons systems, of course.

Its funny right

A jet for attacking ground targets was shot down by a jet made to shoot down other jets, it’s a basic rock, papers, scissors system and doesn’t prove that one scissors are better then the others, just proves a rock can smash scissors which is already known.

JIMI JAMES

Where is the actual footage?

why do you liked your own comment?:)))

Because no one else does ? :)

BECAUSE IT IS A SICK CIA FK LIKE THE REST OF THE POOFTARRS WHO LIE THIS USA SUPREMACY IN EVERYTHING UP ITS OWN ASS!

Fighter jets vs bombers, and? I’m sure when people are ‘flapping their lips’ about Russian tech, they aren’t referring to clapped out Soviet era su24s.

JIMI JAMES

back then was a dog act,this is different no evidence and there are liars on the take who fake things to recieve bonus from the cia complex,
I don’t trust anything unless for example proof like yugoslavia shooting down the wests best drones back then and hit some f117 stealth crap!
one made it back to base,missing the rear tip,the other great expo in serbias museum,plenty of drones too!

Vitex

SU24s are still flying and delivering payload while the American equivalents are in the boneyard. Can see who won that round.

Wayne Nicholson

You’re bragging about shooting down 1970’s vintage bombers ….. so old that the air to air missiles they carry for self defence aren’t made any more ….. using 21st century air defences? You should be ashamed you were only able to hit 2 of them. I’m not sure Syria even has any working fighters to defend them with, it should be shooting fish in a barrel.

JIMI JAMES

No proof to date anyone? I read two pilots as the su 24 fits,meaning if only one hit not two,anyone with a valid take video,anything?
You know us complex hires liars to help scam their way to the limelight!

JIMI JAMES

You wanker don’t know sht about avionics,let alone change a spark plug on a diesel,obviously there is no factual evidence anywhere at worse maybe one ,two pilots safely ejecting if any such,but I believe its the shame how both avoided us sht stuff,so as per fkn usual assigned gimps fake storys to avenge embarrasment as I researched in hundreds of false usa kills,like the h]fake moon landing,fake democracy,fake x and the rest of ye kweer bostering stash but one trhings a certain gimp,usa copys or buys soviet innovations,that truth is the bottom line,I suggest you prove your crap,fakeo!

The SU-24s are an old Russian equivalent of an old A-10 Warthog ground attack planes. Neither of them is designed or used for air to air combat. Additional fighter jets supposed to protect them. It’s not a great feat to down these planes without fighter cover. Terrorists not supposed to have Air Force but the ultra criminal Zio West act as ISIS/Al Qaida/… Air Force! Shame on those Western pilots who are willing to sink that low to provide cover for the head choppers!!!

John Brown

Russia can stop the Turkish advance any time they want to by pulling the plug on the Turkish economy as Russia is Turkey’s number 1 trading partner with China an at number 2. Turkey gets their oil to fuel their military vehicles from Iran and Russia.

The only part of the USSA military that is any good is the the submarine fleet the rest are obsolete garbage built to subsidize corrupt zio corporations. Even then the USSA can’t sustain any war against China for more then a couple of months as most of the parts for the USSA weapons systems come from China dummy and I don’t think China will give them any more parts if they are at war with the USSA. The F35 is a military disaster but a super successful zio fraud against the American people to extract their wealth. Even Iran has superior missile technology shown by the recent strategic defeat they inflicted on the USA in Iraq killing hundreds of USSA slaves destroying many USA planes and drones etc. and putting the base out of operation for a month.

Iran even gave them 2 hours notice and still the USSA could not intercept even one Iranian missile.

In any war between the USSA (the racist supremacist global Jewish Satanic slave empire dictatorship) and Iran, Iran will win. By this I mean the government of Iran will still exist when the war is over and the racist supremacist global Jewish Satanic slave empire dictatorship and its USSA slave government will not. The USSA goyim will likely overthrow their racist supremacist Jewish slave masters in a blood bath when their economy is totally destroyed (hyper inflation, 80% plus unemployment, mass starvation etc.) by such a war. Maybe you can hide in your bunker in New Zealand when this happens if you are lucky.

Doesn’t seem like enough. Turkish terrorists need to be wiped out of Syria. The Ziojew terrorists of the Rothschild neocolony in Palestine need the same treatment now that their constant violation of Syria airspace has reactivated ISIS/al-Qaeda activity in south Syria. Russia must get serious in its support for Syria, the SAA has been sustaining heavy losses for days while Moscow tries its level best to keep Turks and ISISraelis happy

By Anna news
Message from our war correspondents from the south of Idlib
Just returned from under Serakib. I will tell you honestly that now it resembles Russian roulette. Roads are still shot from the air, but to a much lesser extent. The Syrians perked up significantly. While driving to Serakib near the city of Mardih, Syrian air defense worked out. It was hard to determine what it was. But fiery debris fell from the sky. It may be an anti-aircraft missile, but most likely it was a Turkish drone.In favor of the version of the downed drone, we say that before that we heard in the walkie-talkie about strikes against the Syrians, and after that for half an hour we did not record a single case.We will wait for the statement of the Syrian authorities.

Neurasth

Russian Roulette? What does he mean? I dont understand his english.

JUST IN: Another insightful report from Elijah J. Magnier, which gives more details and reliable info than any other source about what happend in the last days:
As usual, the very best connected journalist on the side of Syria:

https://ejmagnier.com/2020/03/01/erdogan-idlib-is-mine/

EveryoneIsBiased

EVERYTHING MAKES SENSE NOW:

A significant development took place in Syria on Friday. A Russian attack on a Turkish convoy in Idlib in north-west Syria killed 36 Turkish soldiers and officers. In retaliation, Turkey launched an unprecedented armed drone attack that lasted several hours and resulted in the killing and wounding of over 150 Syrian officers and soldiers and their allies of Hezbollah and the Fatimiy’oun. The Turkish drones destroyed dozens of tanks and rocket launchers deployed by the Syrian Army along the front line. Russia ceased air support for Syria and its allies demanded from Russia an explanation for the lack of coordination of its unilateral stoppage of air support, allowing the Turkish drones to kill so many Syrian Army and allied forces. What happened, why, and what will be the consequences?

In October 2018, Turkey and Russia signed an agreement in Astana to establish a de-confliction zone along the Damascus-Aleppo (M5) and Aleppo-Latakia (M4) highways. It was agreed that all belligerents would withdraw and render the roads accessible to civilian traffic. Moreover, it was decided to end the presence of all jihadists, including the Tajik, Turkistan, Uighur and all other foreign fighters present in Idlib alongside Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (former ISIS, former al-Qaeda in Syria), Hurras al-Din (al-Qaeda in Syria), and Ahrar al-Sham with their foreign fighters and all “non-moderate” rebels. Last year, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham took full control of Idlib and its rural area under the watchful eyes of Turkey.

Over a year later, the Turkish commitment to end the presence of jihadists and to open the M5 and M4 had not been respected. The Syrian Army and its allies, along with Russia, agreed to impose the Astana agreement by force. In a few weeks, the jihadists defence line crumbled under heavy Russian bombing. According to field commanders, the jihadists left fewer than 100 men in every village, who withdrew under the heavy bombing and preferred to leave rather than be surrounded by the Syrian Army and their fast advance.

Turkey, according to the military commanders in Syria, saw the withdrawal of jihadists and decided to move thousands of troops into Syria to lead a counter-attack against the Syrian Army and its allies. This action made it impossible for Russia to distinguish between jihadists and the Turkish Army. Moreover, Turkey refrained from informing Russia – as it had agreed to according to the deconfliction agreement between Russia and Turkey – about the position of its regular forces. This was when Russia bombed a convoy killing 36 Turkish officers along with 17 jihadists who were present together with the Turkish Army.

According to decision-maker sources in Syria, the Russian Air Force was not aware of the presence of the Turkish convoy when it was almost decimated in Idlib. The Turkish command has supplied Turkish vehicles and deployed thousands of Turkish soldiers with the jihadists. “It almost appears that Turkish President Recep Tayyeb Erdogan wanted this high number of Turkish casualties to stop the successful and rapid attack of the Syria army on Idlib front, and to curtail the fast withdrawal of jihadists.”

According to the sources, Russia was surprised by the number of Turkish soldiers killed and declared a unilateral ceasefire to calm down the front and de-escalate. Moscow ordered its military operational room in Syria to stop the military push and halt the attack on rural Idlib. Engaging in a war against Turkey is not part of President Putin’s plans in Syria. Russia thought it the right time to quieten the front and allow Erdogan to lick his wounds.

This Russian wishful thinking did not correspond to Turkish intentions and plans in Syria. Turkey moved its military command and control base on the borders with Syria to direct attacks against the Syrian Army and its allies. Turkish armed drones mounted an unprecedented organised drone attack lasting several hours, destroying the entire Syrian defence line on the M5 and M4 and undermining the effectiveness of the Syrian Army, equipped and trained by Russia. Furthermore, Iran had informed Turkey of the presence of its forces and allied forces along the Syrian Army, and asked Turkey to stop the attack to avoid casualties. Turkey, which maintains over 2000 officers and soldiers in 14 observation locations that are today under Syrian Army control, ignored the Iranian request and bombed Iranian HQ and that of its allies, including a military field hospital killing 30 (9 Hezbollah and 21 Fatimiyoun) and tens of the Syrian army officers. The Turkish attack wounded more than 150 soldiers of the Syrian Army and their allies.
Turkish backed jihadists and foreign fighters preparing an attack against the Syrian Army position around Idlib.

It was now clear that Russia, Iran and its allies had misunderstood President Erdogan: Turkey is in the battle of Idlib to defend what Erdogan considers Turkish territory (Idlib). That is the meaning of the Turkish message, based on the behaviour and deployment of the Turkish Army along with the jihadists. Damascus and its allies consider that Russia made a mistake in not preventing the Turkish drones from attacking Syrian-controlled territory in Idlib. Moreover, Russia made another grave mistake in not warning its allies that the political leadership in Moscow had declared a one-sided ceasefire, exposing partners in the battlefield and denying them air cover.

This is not the first time Russia has stopped a battle in the middle of its course in Syria. It happened before at al-Ghouta, east Aleppo, el-Eiss, al-Badiya and Deir-ezzour. It was Russia who asked the Syrian Army and its allies to prepare for the M5 and M4 battle. Militarily speaking, such an attack cannot be halted unless a ceasefire is agreed to on all fronts by all parties. The unilateral ceasefire was a severe mistake because Russia neither anticipated the Turkish reaction nor did it allow the Syrian Army and its allies to equip themselves with air defence systems. Moreover, while Turkey was bombing the Syrian Army and its allies for several hours, it took many hours for Russian commanders to convince Moscow to intervene and ask Turkey to stop the bombing.

The military command of Syria and its allies believe that Turkey could now feel encouraged to repeat such an attack by Russian hesitation to stand against it. Thus Syria, Iran and allies have decided to secure air coverage for their forces spread over Idlib and to make sure they have independent protection even if Russia were to promise – according to the source – to lead a future attack and recover total air control.

It is understandable that Russia is not in Syria to trigger a war against NATO member Turkey. However, NATO is not in a position to support Turkey because Turkey is occupying Syrian soil. Nevertheless, the war in Syria has shown how little the rule of law is respected by the West. A possible US intervention is not excluded with the goal of spoiling Russia, Iran and Syria’s victory and their plans to liberate the Levant from jihadists and to unite the country. Possible US intervention is a source of concern to Russia and Iran, particularly when President Erdogan keeps asking for US direct intervention, a 30 km no-fly-zone, a buffer zone along the borders with Syria, US Patriot interception missiles to confront the Russian air force, and a protection for internally displaced Syrian refugees (at the same time as he organises their departure to Europe).

Moscow maintains good commercial and energy ties with Turkey, and President Putin is not in Syria to start a new war with Syria’s enemies Turkey, the US and Israel, notwithstanding the importance of the Levant for Russia’s air force (Hmeymeem airbase) and navy (Tartous naval base).

The options are limited: either Russia agrees to support the preparation of the inevitable Syrian counter-attack in the coming days and before a Putin-Erdogan summit, or the situation in Idlib will hibernate and remain static until jihadists attack Aleppo again in the next 6-7 months.

StafJustice

I told ya all that it was the Russian air force that wiped the Turk soldiers…which is good!
Russia feared the consequence and unilaterally withdrew air support for the SAA in the mids of a war…
This is very bad….exposed the SAA and allies to Turkish drones..
Now the allies have regrouped and well prepared with or without Putin..

nyomarek

Magnier seems candid. He should have included that Chief Roaches in the CIA pulled their mid-range submarines closer to Syria and really want to unleash a tactical nuke on SAA positions. If Idlib is liberated, Mossad CIA will be foaming at the mouth and there will be bloody retaliations. They just cannot let the Syrian people celebrate happily.

EveryoneIsBiased

Magnier is candid, much more than usual. His sources in the SAA and in Damascus, Beirut are PISSED. That is why. And very understandable.

It is an article from the best connected and experinced reporter on the side of Syira. It explains everything that happend in last days.
If you only have 5 minutes time, you can not spend it better if you want to understand this mess.

Thanks for the link.

@Inc2Get

Saraqib liberated. 80% of it secured and 20% last is evacuated but will be secured today. The SAA also launched counter offensive in southern Idlib to retake the recent gains of HTS whereas the SAA liberated just days ago. Situation will return to normal. Turkey has decreased its activities in Syria after the no fly zone over Idlib imposed by Syria. Many Turkish UAVS have been downed. Putin and Erdogan will meet 5-6 march and has decided to deescalate before the meeting.

Lol, this is too funny ?. Did you make this or something? If someone made a game called Turkey 2020 (based on Hong Kong ’97 for the SNES), they should certainly use this as a background. And instead of Deng Xiaoping’s head, use Erdogan’s head. And the main character should be Assad, not Jackie Chan.

i think saa should pull out other troops on quiet front like DARAA and transfer them to idlib

i troop surge is needed

also obliterate those observation forces if turkey does not stop attacking
