Turkey 'Condemns' Syrian Strike On Its Convoy In Greater Idlib, Claims 3 Civilians Were Killed

On August 19, the Turkish Defense Ministry officially condemned a Syrian warning airstrike on its military convoy heading towards the Syrian town of Khan Shaykhun, which is under control of terrorist groups in southern Idlib.

“We strongly condemn this attack that violates existing agreements, cooperation and dialogue with Russia,” the defense ministry said.

Furthermore, the Turkish side claimed that 3 civilians were killed and 12 others were injured in the strike.

A video of civilians targeted by the Syrian strike. The brutality of the bloody Assad regime has no bounds:

According to the Turkish military, a military convoy was initiated to ensure the safety of Observation Point No. 9, to keep supply routes open and prevent civilian casualties in the region.

The convoy was accidentially consisting of over 20 military vehicles, including battle tanks, and moving towards the region where al-Qaeda-linked militants democratic rebels have suffered large casualties in clashes with the Syrian Army. Most likely, Turkish forces were aiming to rescue them Khan Shaykhun by serving as human shields against the Syrian Army advance. Unfortunately for the democracy, the Assad regime prevented this humanitarian operation, at least by now.

    Syria should release a statement to Turkey. ‘Do not fuck with us’

      They have already made it, by three different ways.

    • David Parker

      They just did.
      This time Assad and the SAA used language Erdogan could understand.

    Turks should know it is dangerous to drive into a war zone ! DUHH
    SO STAY AWAY :)

    • Rob

      It is illegal, blunder, trespassing, provocation to inject military conveys into a sovereign state.

      Turkey should know that Green can nicely burn with dry terrorists.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        It is an illegal occupation and invasion and the Turkeys and their terrorists will be cooked and must cooked, X-mas and Thanksgiving not withstanding.

          Stuffed.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            According to Iranian, Russian and Iraqi intelligence sources, the US and Zionist sponsored so-called Islamic State from its last shard of territory in Syria’s eastern Euphrates, the terror group is gathering new strength, conducting guerilla attacks across Iraq and Syria, retooling its financial networks and even targeting a vast new pool of recruits at an allied-run tent camp, Iranian and Iraqi military and intelligence
            officers said.The main recruitment conduit is Turkey and its MIT (military intelligence) with its Americunt CIA masters which are revamping Jihadi terrorism as a counter to SAA and Kurdish forces.

            Where u hear this?

          • Icarus Tanović

            It may happen, but nevertheless they’ve lost their major strengths. Now they are running away from Al Lataminah, and other towns around? Haven’t heard of that before, bet.
            That is, mega karma is coming to get them. They spread terrorism and fear and phobias, now it turned against them, so pigs just tun. I wish I see them surrounded.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      It is more than that, the Turkey losers are invaders in Syria and even under the Zionist UN charter, Syria is obligated to expel all invaders. The Turkey arseholes are liars as no civilians were killed in this warning airstrike which cooked 3 Turkeys, destroyed 2 APC and one Toyota pick-up. The Turkeys were trying to reinforce their headchoppers and SAA and Russians were not about to let that happen, so the lead column was hit and Turkeys fled, plain and simple. Now the SAA has total control over M5 and moving North and East.

  • World_Eye

    Yeah and what the fuck are you doing with Al-Qaeda in Khan-Shukan a, deliver more goods. Nasty ottoman evils, generally Turks are good Nation tho, but these governmental mixing with Terror groups is nasty business.Understand Turks and your NFL proxies, you cannot protect HTS inside Syria.

      Turkey sent a couple of F-16s into Syria to retaliate and/or guard the convoy. RuAF responds by sending a couple of Su-35S to chase them away. Seems the Turk AF is plenty brave in sneak attacks on unsuspecting RuAF aircraft, but the Turk AF is a little cowardly when it comes to confronting superior RuAF air superiority fighters sent to kill them. Who would have thought?

          Not really.. Just Putin pushing back after Turkey warming up with US again.

          But it does not change Russia geostrategy (Of seeing Erdogan as one of the most valueable partner in MENA besides Israel and Iran) and neither Erdogans (as sitting between NATO and Russia and benefiting from both)

          But i agree it would be nice if this would indeed be true. :)

        Yeah, who would have thought?
        I say finally though.
        Seems the cards have fallen. Turkey will now suck up even more to US, and after loosing Idlib Erdogan will be forced to find a place for the 10000s of Jihadists that will be pushed to Afrin and Al Bab.
        Thinks look finally good again for Syria!

      • Hasbara Hunter

        I did…

    Machine translation from Baldi News:

    A Turkish military convoy of dozens of vehicles, including tanks and armored vehicles, entered the Turkish checkpoints in the southern countryside of Idlib on Monday, amid intensive flight of Turkish reconnaissance aircraft.

    According to Baladi News correspondent in Idlib countryside, a Turkish military convoy of 28 vehicles, including 7 tanks, 6 loaders, vehicles and trucks carrying ammunition, entered Monday morning from Turkish territory and headed towards Turkish observation points in the southern countryside of Idlib, in conjunction with the flight of Turkish reconnaissance aircraft in the air Southern Idlib countryside.

    Our correspondent said that the warplanes of the regime’s air force targeted the Turkish convoy’s route, while passing on the road “Damascus – Aleppo” near the city of Maarat al-Numan, which resulted in obstruction of the convoy and stopped by the raids.

    [Maarat al-Numan is 22 km north of Khan Shaykhun – SAA/Rus didn’t even want the convoy to leave that head-chopper stronghold on the M5 to KS]

    He pointed out that the warplanes raids on the highway “Damascus – Aleppo” resulted in the death of a member of the faction “Legion of the Levant” of the National Liberation Front and wounded 6 others.

    [I thought this was ‘a TSK convoy’. Maybe they just picked up head-chopper hitchhikers?]

    Observers of the north of Syria broadcast a leaked audio recording from the regime’s leaders, according to which orders were given to their forces to target the convoy near Maaret al-Nu’man in the southern countryside of Idlib.

    [Because air force commanders usually like to order airstrike tasking by broadcasting in the open so everyone can hear]

    The entry of the military convoy supported by tanks and heavy machinery comes as regime forces continue to advance along the axis of Khan Sheikhoun city to completely isolate the northern countryside of Hama from Idlib countryside, where there is a Turkish observation point in the area of ​​Mork.

    [Morek, I guess…]

    Commandos
    The Anatolia news agency said that units of the “commandos” arrived in the region of Kırık Khan of the Turkish state of Hatay, opposite the province of Idlib, on Sunday.
    The reinforcements come in an effort to distribute them to military units based in the border region with Syria, the agency said.
    The agency said that the units went to the border with Syria, amid tight security measures.
    The reinforcements come in conjunction with the military operation of the regime forces backed by the militias of Iran and Russia in the province of Idlib, where Ankara has 12 observation posts.

    [Commandos for border guards? Heh… I guess Smeagol IS really worried about 50,000 headchoppers and their families streaming across the border to ‘safe’ Turkey! I have to hand it to him though: at least Turkey protects its borders from illegal immigrants, unlike… well, you know who…]

    • Pave Way IV

      Other news outlets reporting that the convoy was intended to establish two new Turkish checkpoints on the M5 north of Khan Shaykhun to keep the route open for head-chopper supply. While I have little doubt Turkey regularly resupplies the head-choppers and probably has stuff for them in this convoy, I have to say the convoy itself looks like it has the same kind of armor and other junk that it used to establish the previous Turkish checkpoints. I doubt Turkish claims that this convoy was meant to reinforce the Morek checkpoint – they have to know that Morek is a lost cause. I’m inclined to think that they DID want to establish Turkish Army ‘human shield’ checkpoints on the M5 to keep it open. The bombed convoy was also reported to be one of three sent from Turkey, but nobody said where the other two are now.

      • jorge

        Perhaps the “one of three” is the three ensembled in one.

    and secondly make clear to Zionist pig Putin…. all your bullshit treacherous Agreements with Turkey are null and void!!!

  • Kire Stojanovski

    What kind of bomb was that!?!!!! It made a 10 meters deep hole in the road!!!! It’s so mind blowing!!! I can’t believe my eyes!

    • Rob

      The bomb went down in the ground 10 meters deep and then exploded which cover hundred meters area. It was KAB. Very perfect message to Turkey.

    • You can call me Al

      It was a “fuckyou Turkey” bomb, also know in Nato as “not again 3972”.

      • PZIVJ

        Dam, that must been an FUT-500 at least ! ( official Russian designation )

    • Pave Way IV

      First, the video is NOT from the convoy strike – the M5 (Damascus/Aleppo Hwy) is a divided highway from Maarat al Numan to Khan Shaykhun, and no part of it has any water bodies on either side (like the video shows).

      The first hole only looks 3m deep (to the water inside) to me. Either unexploded HE (failed fuse) or penetrator that exploded tens of meters under the highway (unlikely). The other two craters (w/Toyota and w/tire) seem like ones you would expect from 250 or 500-class air-dropped bombs on a paved surface. Toyota truck looks like it was near an explosion, then ran into the hole. Since we don’t know where/when the video was taken, the damage shown may not even be from an airstrike, but who knows?

      Maybe this was from the Turkish intel-related head-chopper that got smoked yesterday. I would expect a targeted RuAF airstrike like that would have at least one fuel-air bomb in the mix ‘…just to be sure’. The first pickup and motorcycle seem pretty toasted.

    So long as the Turks keep suplying the jihadi’s in Syria’s Idlib province they remain an enemy occupier allied to terrorists in Syria and as such make themselves legitimate targets.

  • AJ

    Its a bit rich the Turks complaining that Syria has violated existing agreements when the jihadists have failed to remove their heavy weapons from the demilitarised zone and have continued to attack government held areas even when the ceasefires were in effect

    • You can call me Al

      Those trucks were carrying weapons to their terrorist scum. Syria did exactly the correct thing, hopefully will repeat it as well.

        Turkey holds a Key Position…and always played a pretty Treacherous Role, just like a Member of the Masonic Muslimbrotherhood should… Better for the Turks to Listen to the Russian rules of playing this Game…. because the AngloZioNazis & ZIONATO are History…and besides that Europe will never ever accept Turkey as a Full member…. Turkey should focus on a new Middle East….and become a good Neighbour of Syria they want to control them Kurds…

  • gustavo

    Turkeys (NATO member) are terrorists helping terrorists and must be sent back home for good. Russia must bomb Turkey convoys.

  • hvaiallverden

    Yup, the shitheads in Ankara took an Joohoho, and of course this uh…. human aid uh…. convoy was just there to help the people, their happy head chopping friends and the moderate happy head chopping friends of Tumpstein & Co, in Ibdil, right Turkies, and inside, uh….. Syria, and they, of course as all bitches, learns to deliver drviel as their master have been doing for decades.
    Punding an liitle enclave with the state of the art weapons, and whines when somebody is to evil and have the bloody nerves to fight back, against the Joohohos, of course, that as the scums whine about is pure self defence, right Turkies, we didint do nuffin wrong.

    But, credit goes to those that finaly awakened to the actions of this f…. the RUF did the right thing, never ever trust an Montain monkey, aka the Turkies, the only language they understands is getting an foot in their faces, and keep it there, since montain monkeys have an problem with learning, and getting the bloody facts into an proper track, and like worms, tries to wigle them selfs out of their own created problems by blaming others.
    It took some time, didnt it Russia, but I hope that this isnt the end, bomb the bimbos back to their own shithole Turky, let them run.
    The next time, make shure nothing is left, just eraze them completely.

    peace

  • David Parker

    Erdogan orders his minions to invade Syria and then cries when his invading Turks coming to aid his head-chopper demons, get hit by the very SAA they mean to kill!
    By this logic, Assad would be justified to send terrorists to shell Ankara and torture Turkish civilians to death and Erdogan should allow Assad to resupply the terrorists.
    The effrontery of Erdogan rivals that of Netanyahu.

  • ColinNZ

    They hit the first vehicle in the convoy (guide ‘FSA’ vehicle), and the leader of Faylq al-Sham (hardly a civilian) was killed along with other ‘FSA’ occupants, but no Turkish military were killed or injured. Erdogan was told the rest of the convoy would be hit if they do not go back, thus the weapons intended for terrorists in Khan Sheikun will not be delivered. Erdogan has been well & truly humiliated, hence his whining.

  • StevenRobert

    Not sure what is actually going on, and that’s intentional by Turkey who wants to claim a humanitarian mission, like Putin was doing in Eastern Ukraine when sending a supply column of a hundred white canvas trucks. He had occupied Crimea with “little green men” so we’re probably going to see these shadow wars in which countries try to maintain plausible deniability about what or who is involved, or say it’s people on furlough. Often they’re contractors, rather than official government forces, so probably no insignia.

    US and Russia now are employing contractors for many military operations since politically, they can’t send national forces. Contractors are essentially mercenary forces. That doesn’t mean they aren’t formidable, in fact they may be more experienced and better trained than many national forces.

    This is going to result in forces shooting first and asking questions afterward, or else you sudden find you’re surrounded by an infantry brigade supported by tanks with artillery support.

    It looks like that’s what Syria is doing her. Turkey is trying to get rid of Kurdish forces on it’s borders in Syria and wants to destroy them, considering them to be terrorists.

    The Kurds have been allies of the US with US support and have essentially carved out a bastion in Northern Iraq and Syria, a defacto Kurdistan, through taking on ISIS and defeating them and defending themselves against all comers and have some degree of autonomy. I’m not sure if Turkey was trying to take on the Kurds, ISIS or democratic forces from the Syrian civil war against the Assad regime. Russia has held the Syrian regime together with supplies and air support, and air support, both by Russia and the US has enabled movement on the battlefields which would otherwise probably have turned into trench warfare like WWI.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    Civilians my backside, it’s more likely rebels or regular Turkish troops were killed.
    The Turks tried and failed, the SAA has retaken all the contested areas around Murak and the Turks are totally surrounded. This is a total turn around for the SAA because just moments ago I was really worried
    that Erdogan had totally outmaneuvered Assad, but no he hasn’t, Assad actually outmaneuvered him, once again, LOL LOL LOL.

  • Philip

    Unmarked trucks with weapons clearly shown. The truth is in the last paragraph of the article.

  • Johan

    God thing invader Turkey and tyran Erdogan are exposed in their cheating terrorist acts.

  • goingbrokes

    I don’t think the primary mission of this Turkish convoy was to rescue the headchoppers cause. It is much more likely that someone paid the Turks a lot of money to go and try to rescue WESTERN SPECIAL FORCES members from the N Hama area, and protect them from both SAA and the jihadists.
    But Syria won’t let them go any more. Battlefield justice.
