On September 13, the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) launched a series of air strikes on the militants’ infrastructure in south of Syria’s Idlib governorate.

This time, the air strikes of Russian warplanes targeted facilities in the vicinity of the town of al-Bara that is located in the al-Zawiya Mountain area.

One the Turkish monitoring post is located there. One of the Russian bombs reportedly fell near the Turkish checkpoint. No casualties were reported.

This is not for the first time that Russian warplanes take risk and hit militant facilities located near Turkish positions.

At the same time, Russian Mi-8 and Ka-52 helicopters were spotted for the first time in the sky over the city of Jarablus that is located on the Turkish border in the north of Syria’s Aleppo province.

The village is located in the zone of the Operation Euphrates Shield, where Turkey fully controls the airspace.

Meanwhile, artillery of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) targeted the villages of az-Ziyar, al-Ankawi and Haribat-Nakus in the north-west of Hama governorate.

Russian warplanes and the SAA continue to hit the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib where several terrorist groups are known to be present and active.

On September 12, the VKS carried out a series of air strikes on the towns of Darat Izza and Sheikh Salman in the western Aleppo countryside and the town of Kansafra in the southern countryside of Idlib.

HTS and Turkish-backed fractions in Syria’s Greater Idlib have been suffering from almost daily air strikes for more than three weeks now.

Amid the ongoing artillery and air strikes, reports about the SAA’s preparations to launch a new large-scaled ground operation have been circulating in media, citing Syrian military officials. According to a spokesman for the reconciliation committee in Syria, the operation would be aimed to secure the M4 highway.

Ka-52 is such a sleek and aggressive looking machine, it’s all business.

The Objective

You’ll know what the response will be if one Turkish soldier is killed in these air strikes. Russia mostly hits targets above ground and for all the bombing, fewer than 10 people have been killed, including civilians.

Pakistan, Azerbaijan, and Turkey just started a massive military drill in Baku that will last for days. It’s called “The Three Brothers”. Pakistan’s nuclear umbrella extends to Turkey “unofficially”.
Another news is that Ukraine just ordered 24 more Bayraktar TB2 drones from Turkey with four more to follow, totaling 28 new drones. This brings the total to 40 Bayraktar TB2 drones with Ukraine.

Russia has been bombing Idlib for weeks but what can it show for it? Not an inch of territory was captured. These strikes are less effective than Israeli strikes on Iranian targets, which usually does a great deal of damage visible from satellites. Russia mostly hits targets above ground.

Russia taking more risks by hitting closer and closer to Turkish forces? Putin’s provocations has encouraged Turkey to sell Ukraine more drones. The more provocations, the more Turkish military gear Ukraine will receive. You’ll know the real consequences when these careless risks result in the death of Turkish soldiers. Putin is dragging Russia down a slippery slope. Allowing Russia to do as it pleases in Syria will embolden it to continue misbehaving in Muslim lands. A firm costly response is what will make them rethink their ambition to dominate Muslim areas vacated by America.

Zarko Ciric

Corrupt shithole of Ukropisstan

Condolences to the fallen wahabimossad and CIAisis operators.
May they rest in pieces…


Turkey has been doing the same in north syria specifically east of Euphrates and Kurdish areas but Turkey won’t exit North Syria at all. It will not accept Refugees if anything this escalation could lead to Assad losing more territories and Turkey getting pissed off and advancing towards Damascus


Turky is a legetimate target for supporting terrorists. Turky is an occupier in Syria and must be bombed 24/24. So all the bases from yankees, uk, nato on Syrian and Irak territory. must be exterminated. Whitout support, the terrorists will be uproted in 24 h.


I will like to see that happen in fact I prefer I pissed of Turkey to launch the fifth incursion into Syria they are unpredictable Turkey is armed to the teeth and can easily rollover this

hans raus

turkey is armed to teeth only against 3rd world countries like syria where soldiers wearing sport boots.Turks are poorly trained and you cant compare them with russian.Its day and night.

The Objective

They blew up hundreds of your Soviet Junk in N-K, Syria, and Libya.
If they aren’t strong, why the hell did you back down from your attempted invasion of Idlib?


If they won’t leave Syria they will be buried there.


There are more chances of Turkey going inside Damascus than the other way around


Go for it you deluded asshole.

The Objective

We won’t until forced to do so. And I think you know what to do in order to force Turkey’s hands.

The Objective

Not until all the Russian crusaders are buried first.


How they know that VKS will target this or that place where the terrorists set out camera before they bomb. Is Russia inform Turks before hit the target. Strange…
