Turkey Claims Even More Syrian Soldiers Were Killed By Idlib Militants, As Well As By Israel

ILLUSTRATIVE

On February 14th, the Turkish Ministry of Defense advertised some more of the supposed successes of Turkish-backed militants in Idlib.

“According to the latest information received from various sources in Idlib region, 63 Assad regime elements have been neutralized”, the ministry said.

This is, yet again, only a rumor, since Turkey fails to present any evidence that actually any Syrian Arab Army troops had been killed.

So far, close to 300 hundred Syrian Arab Army have been allegedly killed by statements released by the Turkish Defense Ministry. There’s been no evidence provided, and there is no confirmation of such casualties on the side of Damascus.

On top of that, Anadolu Agency is also advertising what the Israeli air force is achieving against Damascus, and its Iranian allies.

Israeli bombing of the Syrian capital Damascus overnight on February 14th reportedly led to the killing of seven people, including four Iranian officers.

Citing a military source, Syrian state outlet SANA added that “at 23.45 p.m. [2145GMT] on Thursday, the army observed hostile missiles coming from over the occupied Syrian Golan Heights, and immediately the army air defenses intercepted and downed a number of them before they reach their targets.”

“The hostile missiles came from over the occupied Syrian Golan,” it added, referring to the Israeli warplanes.

The Daily Sabah is also carrying out its own anti-Russia and anti-Damascus propaganda.

The Russian Embassy in Turkey, shared on Twitter a set of pictures showing the U.S. past engagement with the YPG/PKK group in Syria.

According to the Daily Sabah, this was allegedly an attempt by Russia to worsen relations between US and Turkey, since they’ve been improving after the US voiced its approval of Turkey’s endeavors in Idlib against the Syrian Arab Army.

“We leave you the verdict,” the tweet by the Russian Embassy in Ankara said. It contained two conflicting screenshots that showed the contradiction in the U.S. stance on the terrorist YPG, the Syrian wing of the PKK.

In one of the screenshots, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is seen with a caption saying “We support our NATO ally Turkey, whose soldiers have died after the attack” about the recent assaults by the Syrian Arab Army that killed 13 Turkish soldiers.

In the other screenshot, there was an infographic by Anadolu Agency (AA) which documented the Pentagon’s request for $200 million in support for YPG.

The Russian Embassy post also shows the hypocrisy of the US, as well as Turkey, who support terrorists, simply by denying they are such.
