Over 200 Militants Eliminated During Failed Turkish-led Attack On Al-Nayrab: Syrian TV

Illustrative image

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) eliminated more than 250 militants while repelling the Turkish-led attack on the town of al-Nayrab in Greater Idlib, the Syrian TV revealed.

According to the state-run channel, the army also destroyed many battle tanks, armored vehicles, howitzers and rocket launchers which were supplied by Turkey.

Al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and the National Front for Liberation (NFL) carried out the attack in the morning of February 20. The Turkish military provided the militants with direct fire support.

The Turkish military had acknowledged that two of its service members were killed in a town near al-Nayrab during the attack.

The support of the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) allowed the SAA to repel the large-scale attack within a few hours. Su-24 warplanes destroyed twelve vehicles of the attackers, despite being targeted from the ground.

The failure of the attack was for sure a major blow to the militants and Turkey. Ankara, however, may soon launch yet another attack in order to improve its position in any future negotiations with Moscow.

        Erdogan is not getting any Patriot, rather he would receive real coup attempt or he would be suicided ;) Might get heart attack, believe that his Washington “friends” are not too happy with him as of late. I’ll be surprised if he live to see 2021 in power. He was checked and out of options.

          The majority are ardent followers of the deceiver high priests who offer them the comfort of ideology stability.

          There is always a time when the deceivers are defrocked, but this can take generations. It is my opinion that current events suggest a generational change is imminent and overdue.

    • Karen Bartlett

      You’re right, hideous! (You Brits sure have a way with English. Heh, heh.) Maybe the US soldiers getting rocks thrown at them and running Russian vehicles off roads can get a job with Erdogan and his HTS henchmen. Oh, wait…

      In stark contrast the MSM in Greece
      Is outright saying Turkeys are supporting terrorists in idlib.
      At least some TV channels are.

      Pathetic,what world must these ignorant western MSM reporters live in to think HTS/NFL etc are mere ‘rebels’. They’re genocidal terrorists of the worst kind.

  • Dick Von Dast’Ard

    Not having too much sympathy for a country that allows Israel to carry out airstrikes against it, (without response) and the U.S. to occupy it without any resistance.

    Damascus has set a precedent where it allows one aggressor, but not another.

          • Carlo s

            Wohl, 21, and his former business partner Matthew Johnson were charged in California for the illicit sale of securities in a Riverside Superior Court, according to a criminal complaint filed last month. In 2016, Wohl and Johnson allegedly “represented themselves as members of a company called Montgomery Assets,” according to the complaint. Between July 27 and August 27, 2016, the two accused “offered for sale unqualified securities in violation of California Corporations Code 25110.”

            The warrants for Wohl and Johnson were issued on August 19, however Wohl has yet to be arrested, the Riverside County District Attorney’s office said.

      Isn’t there an astray somewhere that you and your friends should be sitting in?

  • IMHO

    Spank that butt!

  • Allowing Idlib militants, even in conjunction to attack Syria lines is an effective way to thin out enemy resistance. This failed attack is just proof of an effective Syrian strategy taking valuable real estate from the jihadists, causing the jihadists to attack Syria positions, and then pressing the counterattack for actual gains. The most effective thing the jihadist could is attrition.

    As it stands Turkey does not have enough will, commitment, skin in the game, to force Assad out of Idlib. However, situation tends to change. It is unclear how long the status quo will persist. Other large parties like the United States could shift the balance by deploying US troops in Idlib, or supplying Turks with antiaircraft capabilities to threaten Syrian and Russian jets.

    Another effective tactic could be an attack from al Bab to Eastern Aleppo, or from efferent south towards Northern alleppo.

    also the Turkish Air Force could start launching attacks on the Syrian army from Turkish airspace in the northern section of the country with impunity.

    • BlueOctopusBoy

      Launching attacks on Syria from Turkey doesn’t make them immune..it is a retaliatable offence under int. Law

  • BlueOctopusBoy

    250 seems a high estimate but state tv does exaggerate enemy loses.. I think what Turkey is doing is getting rid of spent terrorists by sending waves upon waves of them to a well fortified line like Nayrab with no air cover… 🌊

    • Carlo s

      terrorists made a stupid mistake by posting pics with turkish spec.forces near nayrab a day before so SAA knew exactly when and where to prepare a welcoming committee. very ambitious operation but it failed miserably, turks stopped providing artillery support after russian airplanes bombed them and terrorists were just annihilated en masse.

  • Paciullo #Gilet vert sarde

    They now make sex with the goats and takes the big bamboo from Satan :D

  • Albert Pike

    Looks like Turkey closed their airspace to Russia, and reinforcements are coming over the Caspian Sea and Iran/Irak, so there isn’t much hope for Russian Turkey peace:
