Syrian War Report – December 31, 2019: Turkish Military Shelled Syrian Army Positions

The Turkish Army has shelled Syrian Army positions near the town of Bir Issa in northern Raqqa. Local Kurdish sources claimed that several Syrian soldiers were injured and three vehicles were destroyed in the incident that took place on December 29. On the same day, sources close the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) reported that the SDF had destroyed a Turkish military vehicle and killed 3 persons abroad in the same area.

Despite these developments, the situation in the area remained relatively calm thanks to the ceasefire regime agreed by Ankara and Moscow. However, if such incidents continue to appear, northeastern Syria will once again became a hot point of the conflict.

According to the Russian side, one of the destabilizing factors is the US support to Kurdish separatism on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov addressed this issue on December 30 following talks with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif.

In southeastern Idlib, the Syrian Army secured the town of al-Halba after a series of clashes with Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and its allies. After a series of setbacks in the battle against government forces, Idlib militant groups are now regrouping and resupplying their forces. The army is also not conducting large offensive actions.

    Syria will not comment about the incident, because obviously those are Kurdish communist guerilla wearing SAA uniforms, trying to control peace corridor; the M4 highway.

    Turkey (NATO is a Russian friend. However, How friendly is Turkey ? humm,…. you see the terrorists that Turkey has supported so far in Idlib (even supporting the attacks to Russia air basis. Of course, Erdogan denies anything about this, but Russia knows it, but $$$$ comes first).

    See what has happened here. Untill now Turkey has been using those mercenaries (that will sell their own mother for cash in hand) in Syria to fight Assad and the Kurds.

    Now that those mercenaries are sent to Libya the void must be filled, hence the regular Turkish army finaly starts using their weapons (weapons of cource provided by NATO who also provided the same weapons to the mercenaries, ISIS, ALQAEDA and the rest).

    Now we will finaly see if the Syrians are ready to fight for their land against the real enemy, the only enemy, the land grabbers, women rapists and child molesters the genocide prone, the Turks.

      Using “The Syrians” is totally far out just as “Arabs”.

      Sadly it looks like we’ll be doing it without Russia’s help, or Irans.

      All the terrorists have this picture up on their walls, maybe Erdogan even autographed some of them for his followers.

    We must always keep this thought in the backs of our minds. Any Muslim country will always side with other Muslim countries when it comers to destroying Israel. That means American also.
    Islam is a religion built on conquest of the World and the defeat of Western Culture which is Christian based. Islam will not rest until all the World is under it’s control.
    Yes there are many Muslims who do not believe this. But those Muslims will not defy the majority militants. Peaceful Muslims have done nothing to stop terrorist.
    Islam is the polar opposite of Christianity based on what the Quran says and what many Muslims do. Not all Muslims are willing to die for Islam only about 25%. That is hundreds of thousands.
    Muslims are driven by their faith in their god just as Christians are driven by faith in their God.
