Syrian Army Shelled Turkish Post, Destroyed Militants Missile Launcher In Greater Idlib (Video)

Illustrative image.

On July 7, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) shelled the vicinity of a Turkish military post near the town of Qoqfin in the southern part of Syria’s Greater Idlib.

The shelling, which didn’t result in any losses, was likely a response to recent ceasefire violations by al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the de-facto ruler of Greater Idlib, and its allies. These factions continue to receive military support from Turkey.

A day earlier, the SAA responded to attacks by HTS and its allies by destroying a Kornet anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) launcher situated near the town of Hizareen in the southern part of Greater Idlib with a Konkurs ATGM. The launcher’s operators were all killed.

The ceasefire agreement in Greater Idlib was brokered by Russia and Turkey on March 5, 2020. Under the agreement, Ankara committed to reopen the militant-held part of the Lattakia-Aleppo highway, known as the M4, as well as to contain the region’s militants. None of these commitments have been fulfilled, yet.

Today, Turkey shows unconditional support for militants in Greater Idlib. Ankara has been working only to solidify its military presence in the region.

Despite Ankara’s negative behavior, the ceasefire in Greater Idlib is still holding up. However, this situation may change in the near future.

What does Russia has to say about Turkey’s duplicity concerning march 5th agreement?


the first thing rouhani administration did to get the acceptance of the west is try to sabotage the relations with hezbollah and syria but he failed to sabotage it still he totally minimized irans support and until now we saw basically how much the supposedly great russia was doing for syria the last decade almost by now which is basically spill syrian blood and bomb syria from the skies but soon things will change and assad will have his hands filled enough to make some real changes specially when it comes to the occupation of entire syrian lands

“Ankara has been working only to solidify its military presence in the region.”

They are not the only ones. When the attack arrives from the SAA and their allies the entire region will be cleaned out. hts scum will be history.

Another bullshit headline.” Syrian Army shell Turkish Post” only to find they shelled in the VICINITY of the Post. They didn’t shell the post at all. Now it would be interesting if they DID shell a Turkish Post. What would Turkey do if they did. Yes I know the posts are illegal but so is everything that goes on in Syria. Would Turkey respond by attacking the SAA. That would be interesting.

Mr Putin very big error to let the Turk enter Syria…

Cosmo Kramer

inshallah the error can be reversed


But but but but when ?. That is the question inshallah mashallah one day


Imbecilic collection of degenerate trolls. The Russian President does not own Syria you fool. They are operating on Syrian soil under the invitation of President Bashar al-Assad.


Putin has to let the Syrian army do there job, and that is exterminating terrorists (ISIS, Nato, Yankees, Zionists). Putin is hindering the SAA to shoot down the terrorists airforce. The Iranian air defences can shoot them down, Putin open the door to zionist parasites and let them kill Syrians and destroy the Iranian airdefences.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
