Syrian Warplanes Pound Turkish Post In Southern Idlib. Casualties Reported (Video)

Support SouthFront

Warplanes of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) have carried out a series of airstrikes on the outskirt of a Turkish “observation post” in the southern Idlib countryside, the Step News Agency reported on February 20.

According to the pro-opposition news agency, the targeted post is located near Qaminas. The town is only 3 km to the northwest of al-Nayrab, which is now being attacked by Turkish-backed forces.

“Initial reports indicate that personnel of the Turkish military were injured,” the agency said in a short press release.

Oppositions sources shared a video showing one of the Syrian airstrikes which targeted the Turkish “observation post” near Qaminas.

The airstrikes were most likely a response to the ongoing Turkish-backed attack. Militants of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and the National Front for Liberation (NFL) are leading the ground offensive, while the Turkish artillery is providing fire support.

Heavy clashes are still taking place around al-Nayrab. Pro-government sources are claiming that most of the attackers have been neutralized by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA). However, this is yet to be confirmed.

Turks are conducting direct aggression against the SAA so the Syrian Army should hit turkoid invaders hard, kill as many of the rabid dogs as possible. Erdoganian soldiers are same as ISIS and Al Qaeda whom they are supporting.

Islamic Power

Alawites are oppressing the Muslims, especially the weak

Justin

Liar!
70% Sunni population in Syria! U are funded by Saudi, Qatar, UAE etc!
We all know what happened BEFORE Assad’s father came to power! This was the VERY REASON why France gave the MINORITY (the Alawites) Leadership! So they could PROTECT THEMSELVES from the Sunni’s!

What is ISIS? SUNNI!
What is Al-Nusra? SUNNI!
What are Kurds? SUNNI!
What is Erdogan? SUNNI!
WHO DOES ISRAEL SUPPORT? SUNNI!

SHUT YOUR FUCKING MOUTH BEFORE WHITE PEOPLE COME AND KILL U ALL!
DONT MAKE US WHITE PEOPLE COME GET U!
U’LL BE SORRY!

Islamic Power

Alawite thugs shouldn’t be running the country, they are British puppet used as a tool to create war and violence.

JIMI JAMES

Exactly no one is ammune for this grave mistake but Assad back then had to try to keep peace,because if say he refused,back then usa + allies maybe do more harm than todays,but Assad did atleast repent to god of such shame,why he returned all treasures france + british hailed him as the future of syria,still better late than never,point being the only sins unforgiven are that of the unrepented so yes he is stronger than each and every coward from uk/france etc,so your point is valid,and yes much wiser to be truthfull because it does pack a helluva punch!
all lessons must be earn’t not only in heart but al;so spirit,brussels is the enemy!

Islamic Power

All I know is that the future holds great things for Syria and it’s surroundings

Justin

Here is the good news:
Syria is safe under Russia! It will be whole again! Assad will be a hero along with many of the Generals!

Bad news: Iran will have a revolution! So now Syria will be 100% dependent on Russia!

Justin

Wrong!
France puppet!
This is why u have no idea what u are talking about! U dont even know who their master is!
Who was ISIS the puppet of?
SAY the NAMES!!!

Islamic Power

Isis fought America in Iraq, but I don’t believe it was any longer on Islamic interest as an organisation in Syria

Justin

so u are dumb after all!
lol your ignorance amuses me!

JIMI JAMES

Use your head,discern!

AleK

Syrians should annihilate all turkish ‘observation posts’ now, just hit them with everything you have. Turkey openly sided with terrorists, they don’t even hide their aggression any more. So, there is no reason to tolerate enemy positions, they are legitimate (and logical) targets.

Peter Jennings

It may become inevitable. What’s to stop the Turkish forces breaking out en masse from these observation posts, rendezvousing with the newly arrived artillery and attacking the SAA whilst terrorists simultaneously mount another wave of suicide bombers?
It could be enough to break some SAA lines.

FlorianGeyer

Its possible that breakouts may be attempted.
It would take a standard of competence and planning though that has not been exhibited by the Turkish forces in all of its questionable operations in Syria thus far.

Peter Jennings

I’m not sure whether i can agree with you Florian. Turkey is a nato member and will by now know everything that nato knows. They will also process more-or-less the same equipment. The US has already offered help and if Erdogan goes down that route, Turkish forces won’t be in control for long.

FlorianGeyer

Would Erdo accept being second fiddle though?

Arch Bungle

SAA may want to ensure that any forces leaving these posts go straight back to Turkey via a predefined road.
But in any case, I predict Turkey will have to vacate the posts now that they realise they’re just providing leverage to the SAA.

Vitex

No air support

Tudor Miron

AleK, you’re trying to run ahead of a train. It’s not wise to loose all those Turkish “observed” posts in one go. They are very useful targets that should be waisted in particular order. Above is an example.

Dawn

My thinking exactly.. why to spent all your cards in one go..

Arch Bungle

Quite right. Hit. Negotiate. Hit. Negotiate.

JIMI JAMES

Very important because to stabilise needs more men,this retracting process will take time lots of time,also turkish posts are the least of syrians worries,no point upsetting balance!

Raptar Driver

Don’t stop until they all drop!

cactus

im gonna lose my sh*t if we lose nayrab to them they have no air support the saa should smash their armored vehicles and tanks with kornet wtf is this sh*t also the obsrvation posts should be used as leverage to stop this crazy histeria

Joe Doe

SAA should prepare counter offensive and push and liberate Sarmin and Qaminas and push along M4. The same time SAA should push and liberate Al Atariband take Batabu, which is part of Aleppo province and the same time this will cut Turkey supply road.

Wolfgang Wolf

bring the Houthis in… they will finish off the Turkish carpet riders

Xoli Xoli

Attack all Turkey bases.

Xoli Xoli

Let the manpads units keep on attacking armor vehicles while airforce clear Erdogan bases.

Fair treatment

Turkey support terrorists
Turkey will never be allowed to enter in Europe
And Europe wont defend Turkey

IMHO

It’s turkey season and their is no bag limit. So go get em.

John

I have to say, President Erdogan is making it look good. I am sticking with my opinion that he is dumping the jihadists but, when dealing with people this dangerous, it has to look perfect.

FlorianGeyer

Time will tell, and IF you are correct, Erdo is willing to see his own soldiers die and maimed for his personal gain.

Tudor Miron

I see it as a little more complicated than the way John see it. Yes, Erdogan has to get rid of those armed gangs because he can’t fully control them – if he stops arming/financing them there’s still a long line of those who will. There’s also internal situation in Turkey – ottoman dreamers demand Turkey carving out parts of Syria, Libia etc. At the same time large part of population is questioning why Turkish soldiers are dying for terrorists. Erdo got himself into a swamp – the more he jerks the more he sinks. I would say that it’s not too long before this clown is gone from Turkish political stage.

FlorianGeyer

I think you are correct ,Tudor.

Erdo is now blatantly and openly fighting side by side with Al Nusra that is a UN designated Terrorist Organisation and even the dumbest in the West will recall that Al Nusra were blamed for the 9/11 event that triggered the US 30 year War on Terror :)

For reasons that only Erdo will know, he has now committed to invade the UN recognised sovereign country of Syria in order to forestall the liberation of Idlib from Al Nusra terror gangs that NATO and others have been covertly supporting for nine or more years in Syria.

Russia has always strived to play by the legal Rules of the Game . This can be infuriating for some, and I quite understand that. However Russia realises the domination of the Anglo Press throughout the world, and as a result Russia has been patiently exposing the absurdities of the US/UK fairytales in the UN when the NATO lies are ready to harvest.

The idiocy of the US and UK spokesmen and women at the UN and elsewhere is obvious to all with half a brain in the world, even the fair weather friends of the US.

Will Erdo double down and compound his poor thinking ?

I have no idea. he is in the same situation as the US really, flaying out in the desperate home that he can intimidate his adversaries.

The US and the Turks should really study history. Had they done so , they would see the 26 million Russian WW2 deaths, some historians say up to 40 million deaths. The Russians keep fighting and fighting even in adversity.

John Wallace

” even the dumbest in the West will recall that ” They will Florian but if they are not being told that Al Qaeda is now Al Nusra and not being told that Syria and Russia are attacking them in Idlid the vast majority will remain blissfuly ignorant. We get very little on our news about Syria and recently all that has been shown is that the US is telling Russia and Syria to stop their attacks in Idlib and the last few days videos of civilians trying to escape from the fighting but absolutely nothing about who these freedom / moderate rebels are so the picture is painted that it is Syria and Russia illegally attacking civilians and hospitals. By ommision of facts , to avoid not telling the truth , the vast majority have no idea of the truth . By saying this rubble “was reported ” as being a hospital avoids telling a lie but creates the idea that it was a hospital and throw in a picture of someone in a white helmet scrambling over the rubble ads strength to their reporting nasty Russian / Syrian attackers to the vast majority . It is only the few that have bothered to look for the truth understand what is being shown is a clever manipulation of the truth avoiding illegaly telling lies or blatent untruths. Our media is very strickly controlled in telling the truth so people accept without question what they say. What they don’t understand is the manipulation to tell approved propaganda .

FlorianGeyer

Yes, you are sadly correct. There will be a tipping point though IF Idlib can be liberated , I think. The stories of the locals who have been abused by the NATO proxy gangs are gaining traction on the periphery’s of Anglo news channels.

Even during WW2 the Blitz Spirit was not what the propaganda said it was and Churchill was disliked by many troops. This dislike spread and as we know, Churchill lost the post war election.

I get the feeling that more people are puzzled about the events of the Middle East and there is certainly a growing groundswell of dislike for Israel these days.
The uninformed are not all stupid :)

“Vanessa Beeley Interview – Turkey & US Openly Protect Extremists In Idlib As Lies Begin To Crumble” Well worth a look.

http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/?p=202687

John Wallace

I hope Syria does fully regain control of Idlib and that an understanding for peace with those groups that were bussed there under agreement. I think the vast majoruty have no idea nor are interested and pleased not to be close to the madness of the ME. The uninformed are not stupid , just uninformed . Whether they have an interest in being informed is another question. Certainly a little growing dislike for what Israel is doing or the ruling group and their followers as of course not all Israeli’s or Jews agree with that course. Just like not all Americans agree with what their government is doing but it is so easy to lump all in as one.
I haven’t seen anything of Vanessa lately so I will go straight to that as soon as I click Post. Thanks Florian , always good to have a mature chat on issues agreed with or not instead of that mindless moronic horseshit that at times transpires. Try to ignore it but doesn’t always work.

John Wallace

Ah The Last American , I quite often watch him on youtube as well as Ryan Dawson who both talk a lot of sense but to a very small audience.

FlorianGeyer

An unintended consequence of the NATO interference in the Middle East is that Syria and Iran have soldiers with real battle experience that will last a generation and that the Russian military at all levels have had real combat training against a brutal enemy. This experience will also last a generation. The Russian weapons systems have also been honed to perfection in a brutal operating environment.

NATO has only buggered around in Afghanistan really.
Oh, I nearly forgot the UK cyber keyboard warriors who have, or certainly had, a budget of 440,000 pounds per month from “at least 2012” in order to create misleading information for the world media from Syria. Various private companies were employed to do this and many were owned by retired British Officers.

The US does what it does best. Levels complete cities and walks away.

John Wallace

That’s right. There is no substitute for the real thing and no one knows how they will react or what they are capable of , or not , until they are faced with that. That plus as you say the honing of weapons and tactics . Not forgetting Hezbollah who will take that knowledge home .
Interesting video with Vanesssa. Pity TV channels weren’t forced to show this as punishment for their b/s.

FlorianGeyer

I was horrified to see a BBC report this morning about the flooding in a rural area.

Horror of horrors, the BBC reporter and a emergency service official were recklessly sitting on loose straw bales in an open farm vehicle cargo trailer with NO seatbelts, NO safety approved ladder access ,whilst being driven down a road that resembled a fast flowing river. The reckless actions of the BBC were compounded by NO Reporter Hi-Viz and NO life belts in the deep water. The camera crew angle suggested that they were standing up.

I must report this flagrant lack of Health and Safety awareness in a place of work immediately. Vulnerable young children and MP’s were obviously watching this national disgrace as well.

Perhaps Vanesser’s interview will be broadcast in the future, John.
It would be an edited version of course. :)

John Wallace

Gone are the days when the BBC was held as a shinning pillar in the world and the most trusted source of truth. The fall from grace is only realised by those who know they are now lying..

FlorianGeyer

Ther is an underlying unease of pro BBC viewers and listeners with the constant virtue signalling for ‘alternative lifestyles’ and ‘pressure groups in all of the BBC and corporate media outlets.
Identity politics anywhere has historically always been a murderous route to take. It is therefore likely that history will repeat itself.

Vitex

One of the few journalists who tells the truth at all costs. CNN? “Now from our Syrian reporter based in Abu Dhabi…..”

FlorianGeyer

A vetted reporter in a 5 star hotel with US intelligence in an adjoining room :)

Tudor Miron

Erdo thinks that if US can support terrorists than he can do it as well. First, he doesn’t realise that he doesn’t control world press. 2nd he doesn’t understand that he could do it only if he would be fully subordinate to US and not trying to be a smart a$$ playing his little Ottoman games. He’s in for a rude awakening.

FlorianGeyer

He is indeed. At the moment the BBC and press are half supporting Turkey and omitting that Erdo is in bed with Al Nusra.
The media still refers to ‘rebels’ and do not emphasise that IDLIB is in Syria.

Tudor Miron

That’s as expected – they still hope to get the Turks to fight Russia on their behalf as was happening so many times in history. But later on – they will definately use it against him when/if he’s not loyal enough.

Arch Bungle

… which means all of this may simply be an extended kabuki theater with Erdogan being the lead performer.

goingbrokes

It could still all be propaganda. With uniforms being dished out who can tell who is a Turkish soldier and who is not.

John

They are absolutely expendible.

FlorianGeyer

Thats very true.

Turkey requests US Patriot missile system to stop Russia in Idlib: report

BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:50 P.M.) – Turkey has reportedly asked the United States, a NATO ally, to deploy two Patriot missile systems along its southern border with Syria, Bloomberg News reported on Thursday.
Citing a Turkish official in Ankara, Bloomberg said the purpose of the Patriot missile systems would be to deter the Russian military’s strikes inside the Idlib Governorate, where as many as a dozen Turkish soldiers were killed in the past two weeks.

According to Bloomberg, the request was made by Turkey to the U.S. envoy to Syria, James Jeffrey, last week; however, they have yet to receive an answer from Washington.
If the Patriot system was deployed in the Hatay Province, Turkey could deploys its fighter jets to Syria in order to deter the Syrian and Russian air forces, the Bloomberg report said.
On Thursday, the Turkish-backed militants, with support from the Turkish military, launched a counter-offensive to retake the town of Nayrab in eastern Idlib.
As of now, intense clashes are still ongoing at the western outskirts of Nayrab, with early reports claiming that the militants have been repelled by the Syrian Arab Army.

They can deploy but if the US takes down any Russian jets, there will be a no fly zone for the US all over Syria.. Then we can see how transparent the F22 turkeys are..

told u Boys About how Evil them Zionist bastards are… for years…. dont look at the small Picture–look at the bigger Picture…..told you Folks for years……….

Just a madman who has lost all his senses or a treacherous Zionist pig could come up with the idea and to the conclusion, that a Turkish Invasion and occupation of parts of the syrian arab republic could Benefit the legitimate Government of Baschar al-Assad.

Putin you treacherous Zionist pig.

-that would be the “bigger” Picture in syria playing out….through Putins Agreements in regards to the turkish Invasion and occupation of syria and hence the finally bringing in of Nato into the syrian conflict.That can only be described as “worst” case Scenario for the syrian arab republic.

On a world scale this satanic Zionist Agenda is playing out as well.Were by Russia and USA are two sides of the same coin.Both controlled by satanic zionism.
the Satanic Zionist World Agenda.

A one world Government, with Jerusalem as it´s capital under satanic jewish Leadership.
ALL NATIONS that RECOGNIZE the illegal Evil satanic Entity named Israel are part of the Agenda.
This includes, USA,Russia,Uk,China,EU etc…
