Russian-Turkish Patrol In Idlib Hit By Another Attack

Click to see full-size image

On August 17th, a Turkish armored vehicle was hit by an explosive while the Turkish Armed Forces and the Russian Armed Forces were carrying out their patrol along the M4 highway in Idlib.

According to reports it was an IED, but it could have potentially been an RPG shot, since it is unclear from the footage.

The incident took place near Ariha, where almost exactly a month earlier a previous patrol was hit by a car bomb.

Activities to discover and disable IEDs are on-going in Greater Idlib and around Aleppo, there were reports that a significant number were dismantled in the days leading up to August 17th.

These attacks are an expected outcome of Turkey’s apparent refusal to undertake effective actions to combat terrorism in the area of Idlib.

As long as Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and others remain in the area, and are the de facto authority in the area, these attacks will continue taking place.

No political solution is possible until the area has been cleansed.

Furthermore, Ankara really has no choice but to, at least partially, support terrorists, since the myth of a “moderate opposition” has all but died.

At the same time, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan needs a buffer that would allow Turkey to annex further territories of Syria, such as Hatay Province which used to be under Damascus control in the past.

Made me laugh, you should pursue a career as comedian .. crush em mehmed


Syria is the country of Assad … not the Turks. What do the Turks want there ?? You are in a foreign country.

Servet Köseoğlu

its not foreign anymore..be realistic…check the facts… thank you…


By the same logic then we can say that whoever.. militarily occupied an area of Turkey, then he is not a foreigner there. This is like trying to tell me ..

Servet Köseoğlu

world lost its logic long years ago…the fact that you possess a sense of morality and we do not gives us an evolutionary advantageAnd if history has proven anything,it is that evolution always wins.


Yes, but when the door of the insane asylum is opened, morality leaves from the window , and then there is no evolution..

Checked facts, he is right you are delusional. New offensive to capture M4 is underway, Kurdish SDF control ( or joint control with Assad ) of half Syria has become reality and Turkish opposition can’t wait to disengage from the Syrian mess while gradually restoring relations with Assad.
