Turkey Claimed It Struck 115 Syrian Arab Army Targets, Killing 101 Soldiers in Idlib

Click to see full-size image

On February 10th, the Turkish Ministry of Defense claimed that Turkish troops had struck 115 Syrian Arab Army targets and that 101 Syrian soldiers had died.

This was in response to the death of 5 Turkish soldiers and the injury of 5 more by shelling from the Syrian Arab Army.

The statement in its entirety is the following:

“Our soldiers, which were sent as reinforcements to the Idlib region, immediately responded within the framework of the rules of engagement and legitimate defense after the recent attacks by the [Syrian] Regime.

We have learned that the 115 regime targets identified in the region have been fired upon immediately, according to the initial information obtained from various sources, 101 Regime elements [soldiers] have been neutralized, 3 tanks and 2 artillery/mortar locations were destroyed, and 1 helicopter has been hit.

Shots continue within the scope of legitimate defense against the specified targets.

The blood of our martyred and injured soldiers has not been left on the ground; it will not be left.

Those who carried out this abusive attack will be asked to account for it and our right to legitimate defense against similar attacks will be used in the harshest way possible. The developments are being closely monitored and necessary measures are being undertaken.

We extend our condolences, patience to the troubled families, Turkish Armed Forces and our noble nation, and we will immediately transport the injured to their troubled families, to our cherished martyrs who lost their lives in this incident that overwhelmed us with deep pain and sadness.”

Turkey is not attempting to hide the fact that troops are being sent to actively support and assist the Al-Qaeda affiliated militants in the region.

    I call bullshit.

  • Rafik Chauhan

    if its true then SAA should have retaliated now. but this is just a propaganda to boost thier terriost child morale.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      These are absolute lies, the Turkey arseholes have been cooked in Syria and they are taking a leaf out of their Jew masters book by telling total garbage fabrications. Who ever launched this airstrike did an excellent job as the number of roasted Turkey armor clearly shows. The Turkey peasants are as incompetent as their Saudi arsehole masters, moving armor in hilly area without recon or air cover is suicidal. Wait till the SAA and Hezbollah ATGM come into play soon. The Russian Kornet and its Iranian cousin the Dehalveih have a laser riding fire and forget range of over 8 kms and ideal for taking out targets in hilly terrain from higher ground.

      • Maximus Decimus Meridius

        Last week, 14 Russian soldiers died, 4 of them in the category of senior officers. Also, those who carried out this attack are Russian air force. Do not try to glorify yourself by insulting the Turks. There are 4 million refugees coming to Turkey in Idlib and all.

  • Selbstdenker

    Just by getting hit and killed does not make a martyr.

  • josh

    Mangholistan shooting more accurate than Le Bron James shooting for 1p 😄😄✌✌

  • AJ

    Sounds like fake news for the home audience.

  • You can call me Al

    This better be some cunning plan by the Russians because I am not amused. Blow the Turk fuckers out of Syria Russia.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Well said, Al.

  • @Inc2Get

    People calm your tits. This is fake news by Turkey. Not a single video, nor photo has even been published by either jihadi media or pro government media outlets.

    • Tudor Miron

      Exactly, 110 destroyed targets would be hard to hide if that was anything more than a bluff.

  • Kolarov

    No it struck 10000 targets and killed 8 quadrillion SAA soldiers, and in 6 minutes they will be in Damascus with a victory parade.

  • Sephiroth

    I thought turkey was in charge of the idlib zoo, but now I see it’s the jihadists who are actively playing turkey. They are dragging the turks in a war that they don’t wanna fight.

  • kraaiiii

    if the SAA soldiers hurt it’s toe it’s on every media in 5 sec, this is total bs cuz nothing for hours no vid no pics no nothing.

  • Sephiroth

    When you are so picky about the numbers, then there is something wrong.

  • Wegan

    These guys go lost in the way to Idlib. Unlikely to be true.
    There is a possibility that the SAA and Russians say that’s true for the face saving event, they are looking for.

  • Tudor Miron

    Yeah, and I’m Maya Plisetskaya… “Victorious” announcements is what Turkey has really mastered to perfection.

  • Fausto Fausto

    Keep calm. The Erdogan pigs just shot 115 bullets into the air.

  • Jaime

    It is pathetic on the part of Turkey to be hiding their failure behind fake news. He should be grateful to Syria for going along with the lie.

  • EveryoneIsBiased

    To those that say this is all propaganda: It surely is for the most part. But that Turkish troops dont strike the SAA back, is not believeable.
    The casualty figures are likely 1:10 to the truth, just like it was with the attack on Kurdish troops.
    But to doubt completely that the Turks strike back is pretty inconcieveable in this situation.
    And the statement by SAA on al masdar (and last times) always was carefully worded, so it could be understood both ways: That the casualtiy figures are wrong, or that no attack has happend.
    While the turks surely lie with those high figures, SAA like any military, US or Iran or any other, will avoid also to admit such attacks.
    We are in info war. From all sides. Sadly.

    Someone should tell Erdy that ‘killing Syrians’ on twitter doesn’t count.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Lol

  • Jackson Brown

    Does anyone know if this is fact or just Turkish propaganda? I am following several Syrian sources non of them has so far confirmed this information.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Erdogan propaganda it is his bullshit. Putin need to take him to rehabilitation camp.Merkel,Boris,Macroni and Trump have already run away from crazy fuck Erdogan. Syrian bloodshed is crying up into the throne of God and driving the gaot fucker crazy.

    • Kananda

      Putin will do noéthing. every bloody kopeyka for russian gas needs he and the oligarchs. They nedd money for buying and supporting of western football clubs.

  • “101 soldiers” I guess more “believable” than exactly 100… little details for big lies.

    ErDogan’s stories from 1001 nights…

  • Wolfgang Wolf

    Errorgan kebab propaganda bullshit…..

  • Kananda

    Here can we see, how weak is Putin and his Russia.

    • Ricky Miller

      Yes, Western countries should quickly begin reductions in military spending and use that money to improve the lives of their own people. With Russia clearly not a threat there is no longer any reason to delay. The rhetoric can return to reality based content as well, as there is no boogeyman out there beyond the Polish and Baltic frontiers. Thanks.

      • goingbrokes

        Great riposte! Send K’s comment to NATO and attach your reply!

        • Kananda

          BS

      • Kananda

        The western rhetoric is in accordance what i wrote. :)

    • Josiah Gaxx Isaboke
  • GordyMan Lopez

    Turkey its just desperately looking for a victory somewhere and are doing so with propaganda they need to justify all that equipment going into syria and really doing nothing with it. The turks want to look strong in the region and they’re failing at every front.they need to pack it up and stop the shyt show its hurting them more then anything. Russia will be weary of them and eu and usa dont like them and the whole region its starting to hate them. Erdogan its playing turkey as an empire in an empireless age just starting to look like a moron flexing stupidity.

  • John Wallace

    I love how Erdogan claims right of self defence when he has illegally invaded the country. Anyway it is more likely for internal consumption rather than fact but risk of this situation escalating to uncontrolable levels is increasing by the day.
    On another note I see the injured as almost doubled again in that Iranian attack that did litlle damage and hurt not one hair on anyones head.

    I watch daily saa tanks getting blown up, at least 2 or 3 a day.

    There are so many videos it gets boring.

    But it does feel good tbh.

    #Martyrdom4Rebels

    #Death2assheadists

  • James Kira

    Does anyone know how many saa get killed daily?

  • Ricky Miller

    I’m sure Turkish forces opened fire but they were doing that already. A SAA helicopter did do a controlled crash landing near Aleppo after suffering some damage during an alleged bombing run so that might be the helicopter Turkey is blowing a horn about. So far, observers in and around the conflict are not reporting anything like such a massive death toll or impacts on SAA operations. If Turkey feels the need to media engineer it’s ferocity that is a good sign that she is, in fact, casualty averse. I think that this operation, and there is almost sure to be one without Russia warning in public what the consequences will be, is on shaky ground with the Turkish electorate. The ruling party is probably on steadily eroding footing too.

    • Ricky Miller

      SANA has recently updated saying that the SAA continues to liberate villages around the M5. They are showing a photo album of SAA at a picturesque Syrian town called Al-Barqouz. On Google Maps it’s spelled Al-Barfouz. Surrounding villages to the North also seem to be in hand now too. That means something near to 10km to Aleppo and the M5 is completely free, except for some Turkish Armed forces posts sitting on or near the highway farther South.

    • Ricky Miller

      Right down to the last exact digit. Umn, you do know that HRW is a Western Intelligence Agency NGO, right? They are a propaganda war machine and there is no way to get the number of losses down to that specifity. That means to treat any claim they make, even reality based assumptions about casualty ranges with a high degree of skepticism. But since you are a troll, here to celebrate the deaths of people in a war that the Western powers started by hijacking a protest movement and shipping in tens of thousands of jihadi gang members and giving them weapons and new toyota trucks, I do understand you’re not here to discuss facts or be constructive. So, downvote. Then ignore.

  • James Kira

    Ahaha, someone not liking the statistics.

    Proof that americunts and assheadists are murderers (and deserve to die).

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c406041b712f6047d30b199a47fe1340eaaea6714e314fe84211d920908826f5.jpg

    • Lol what “statistics” you braindead jihadi shiteater?

      So-called “Syrian Observatory for Human Rights” is run by MI6 and funded by british government. Its founder, Rami Abdul Rahman lives in Coventry, he fled Syria 15 years ago, he’s a convicted criminal and terrorist loving degenerate (just like you)

    • Ricky Miller

      It’s called warfare. Since HTS frequently stashes military equipment and personnel in civilian locations there is bound to be spillover damages and casualties. There would be fewer if the jihadi street gangs allowed civilians to leave the conflict zones by way of the corridors that the Syrians and Russians open up, but the civilians are threatened not to escape in those directions. The jihadi gangs have continued this war, executed prisoners, enforced sharia rule in occupied areas, and destroyed vast parts of Syria. People like you think fighting back is wrong and that Syria should fight some gentleman war against savages. That would be a recipe for defeat. Sometimes, people gotta do what they gotta do. None of this would be necessary if the UN Charter had been adhered to in the first place. War is what you get when you invade someone else’s territory. Even if that invasion starts out as a proxy war. Really, war pig scum just stop. Your side can whine or make war. Try not to humiliate yourself by doing both.

      • James Kira

        4 million civilians recently ran to the Turkish border and not to asshead.

        But yes, based on these statistics we will get pissed and come at you harder, now that Turkey can provide air support. Youre f7cked and your casualties will double or triple and we will take back Aleppo Hama Dara and Damascus, InShahAllah(swt).

        Theres no better morale booster than better statistics than the losers (assheadists).

        • Ricky Miller

          Whatever, it sounds like nonsense to me. So far there has been no Turkish air support at all. Helicopters evacuated Turkey’s wounded but not a single combat sortie in the sky. If Turkey tries air support without Russia’s consent they will suffer extreme casualties. Russian surface to air missiles are deadly and Russia’s Su-35’s have air to air missiles that far outrange anything that Turkish fighters carry. It’ll be a Turkey shoot. Literally.
          Four million refugees from this offensive? No way. But yes, they are running for the Turkish border. They will be fired upon by jihadists if they run to government lines, or have you not been paying attention? Nearly twenty million Syrian citizens are behind the SAA. I care only a little for those siding with jihadi street gangs or who have fled to the West to live off welfare or whatever. They should have stayed, fought off jihadi and foreign invaders, then proceeded down the reform path previously negotiated with the government. Taking up weapons and engaging in armed struggle against your own, especially on behalf of outsiders, is a recipe for suffering and disaster. Proof, in front of our own eyes.

          • James Kira

            Dont worry they are just gearing up, you will know what I mean soon.

  • James Kira

    americunt killed 14,000 in syria, 4000 were civilians and 200 were saa.

    russia killed 20,000, and 10,000 were civilians.

  • James Kira

    Rebels kill 10x more assheadists per civilian.

    Thats why it feels good to have an assheadist die (because assheadists are all murderers and deserve to die)

    assheadists have a worse civillian kill rate than russia and amerikike combined.

  • James Kira

    Everyday 10 assheadists get killed, 10 Rebels are martyred, and 10 civillians, where 9 out of 10 are murdered by assheadists.

    Rebels kill less than 1 out of 10 civillians.

    assheadists are poor losers and southfront is bs lying.

  • Assad must stay

    maybe erdodog was playing a video game and thought it was real life hahahaha

  • James Kira

    I love for d7ath of iranians and russians even begore americunts because irsnisns deserve it the most

  • MeMad Max

    Who cares, kill all invaders in syria….

  • James Kira

    southfont is only at 10% of budget in encouraging russias murder.

    Most people are slow to anger, so just watch in 3 years what happens to iran asshead and russia the three stooge armies.

    People will want to kill assheads.

    • Ricky Miller

      Liar. A majority of Syria’s people support the government and the Army. You know how I know? They are still there. Go away.

  • James Kira

    southfront is just as responsible for murder.

    • Ricky Miller

      The murder began around those parts when the USA illegally invaded Iraq on a lie and killed a million people. After that the U.S. created ISIS to try and have an excuse to stay in the region and went about arming jihadi sunni’s, giving them thousands of new toyota trucks and giving them weapons and money too. That’s how this mess got started. You can blame those who fought back all you want but I reject your argument and your accusations. You are an Imperial collaborator. Go away.

  • Black Waters

    It looks like Turks learn well from the Zionists… i mean, making it up numbers.

  • occupybacon

    and 6 million terrorists were neutralized in Afrin

  • Lazy Gamer

    Syria now has the reason to give the observation posts that are surrounded, a few hours to leave. The forces surrounding the posts become fixed and easy targets and holds back some manpower.

  • ColinNZ

    Turkish claims are 100% false, and we know this because the SAA would have instantly incinerated all the Turkish observation posts they surround, turning all Turkish forces therein to charcoal.

  • Ivanus59

    Hahah. turk-turk lies are sooo childish (as usual).

    Propaganda. And it’s not going to be less for a few days yet.

    Goody goody, my enemies are increasingly killing each other. And, damn, from the sound of their bug infested coach generals around here, they want to go to all out war on each other. YEH!!! Pass the popcorn…
