Turkey Officially Announced Operation Spring Shield In Syria's Idlib

Click to see the full-size image

On March 1, Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar officially announced Operation Spring Shield in Syria’s province of Idlib.

“Operation Spring Shield, which was launched following the heinous attack [on Turkish troops] on Feb. 27 is successfully being carried out,” Akar claimed adding that he was commanding the military effort from Turkey’s southern Hatay province, bordering Syria.

The comments by Akar demonstrate that Ankara will try to paint its military agression against Syria as a self-defense measure. The defense minister forgot to mention that Turkish troops killed in Idlib were illegally in Syria and were supporting al-Qaeda terrorists there.

Earlier, Turkish Sultan-in-Chief Recep Tayyip Erdogan claimed that Turkish forces had entered Syria under the request of the ‘Syrian people’ and will leave Syria only if the ‘Syrian people’ request this. Taking into account that these ‘people’ mentioned by Erdogan are al-Qaeda members defeated by the Syrian Army and surviving only thanks to the Turkish support, it’s unlikely that such a request will come. So, the Turkish side is not even hiding its attempt to annex northwestern Syria.

On March 1, Defense Minister Akar also provided some details on the Turkish version of the Syrian Army casualties in the region. According to him, since the start of operation Turkish forces have destroyed a drone, 8 helicopters, 103 tanks, 19 armored personnel carriers, 72 cannons/howitzers/multiple rocket launchers, three air-defense systems, 15 anti-tank weapns and mortars, 56 armored vehicles, nine ammunition depots, and neutralized 2,200 Syrian soldiers.

After the Akar claims, the Turkish Defense Ministry announced that its forces had downed 2 Syrian warplanes and destroyed 3 air defense systems.

Akar noted that Ankara expects Russia to facilitate its power to end ‘Assad regime aggression’ and the withdrawal of Syrian forces to the borders outlined in the Sochi deal.

According to the Turkish side, its forces are aiming to push the Syrian Army back from all the areas that it had liberated from terrorists since October 2018, when the so-called Sochi agreement was reached. Under this agreement, Ankara and Moscow agreed to set up a terrorists and weapon-free buffer zone in Greater Idlib. However, the agreement was sabotaged by Turkish-backed al-Qaeda-linked groups. So, the military option was employed by Damascus to put an end to the terrorist threat.

Another, and more likely, goal declared  by Ankara is to create a 30km-deep ‘security zone’ in Idlib. It’s expected that the Turkish and Russian leaders will meet to discuss the situation in Idlib on March 5. Turkey is likely aiming to achieve as much as possible before this meeting.

Its looking like Idlib will end being another Northern Cyprus or the Golan

Together wit Afrin, El Bab, Tal Abyad and the rest….

200trillion soldiers, 34,000jets, 50,000 tanks destroyed…
Officiall Tel Aviv news…:_)

Ricky Miller

That was the goal all along. With Russia engaged in operation sit on our hands and watch Syria get assaulted and ripped off there is little the SAA can do. They are outmatched in fighting both HTS and regular Turkish forces.

Christian S

Erdos numbers triple day by day, they propably include hits in libya aswell in this summarize. Erdo and his muslimbrotherhood affiliates promised al qaida idlib as new home many years ago, the promised land for salafist dummies. Its not an option to loose idlib for the sultan as terrorist will ignite problems in turkey far worse then refugees ever will hence his new 30km corridor, u cant keep al qaida on a leash forever. As assad stated , those who play terrorist card will get stunged by it in the end.

HAFTAR MADE A DEAL WITH SYRIA,THEY HAVE MOST ARABS ON THEIR SIDE IN LIBYA!
There are plenty of soros shills here most of them obviously kweers but hey they reveal only the nature of their curse either way their fallacys will be shamed one way or another haftar stocks up

Assad Army:
Syrian Airspace is now closed. Any enemy aircrafts will be shot down immediately.
5 minutes later:
Turkey shoots down two regime Sukhoi 24s, destroys 3 Assad air defense units.
This is Grade-A humiliation.

The actual humiliation here is fighting a 10 year war backing Sunni Islamist terrorists, to have what territory you are controlling restricted to roughly 50 square miles at the end of it.

Ayman

If it is enough for saving civilians against getting killed by Assads
Barrel Bombs it is good.

Dick Von Dast'Ard

Well as we all know, it is the Turkish backed proxies that have prevented Syrian civilians from leaving the war ravaged regions.

shayan-karim

??? bro 70 percent of Syrian people are living in government area?? how many people live in Idlib as hostage? and how they live under the rule of you alqaeda head choper brothers?? you talking about civilians? do you let even refugees to back to Syria if you are so afraid of refugees that your invasion and intervention in Syria maked them?

Rafik Chauhan

SAA has lost everything what they achieve . now Turks will even attack hama city and Aleppo. even in dara what is happening is just bcuz of Turks supporting this militant in idlib. so this dara militant got our age to attack SAA. bcuz SAA has become weak. thanks to Russia and Iran who abandon SAA and Syria now Turks can kill this and of civilian once this al-Qaida get hold of hama and Aleppo city. Assad should better hand over to Maullem the presidency

Dick Von Dast'Ard

Turkey will be split up into two states within the next decade.

Zionism has decreed it.

Tim Williams

OK… Must I reiterate here that Idlib is in SYRIA and therefore the Turkish operations in that region are a full blown INVASION of a foreign nation aka Syria!

Why is this not a declaration of war against Syria itself? The Turks are now definitely at full blown war against the Damascus government…

And thus the Syrian forces have every right to fully target every single Turk that is right now in Idlib illegally.

Ayman

Because the Mission is to Push SAA back to Sochi agreement lines.
Declaring war officially means war to the end till conquering also Damascus and the rest.

Possible for TAF we have the men Power and the Equipment, as seen SAA is no match against us, even our armed UAV would be enough,
But of course that would be to costly….

(Copy-paste of my reply from bitchute.)

I agree that virtually all of the American Founding Fathers were Freemasons; in the range of 98% I think. The majority of them were also aligned with Britain and sough to reenact the same immoral politics and an economy of usury benefiting the elite. Needless to say, they succeeded. I would however argue that the minority of them, the likes of Benjamin Franklin and Alexander Hamilton, were good men who wanted to break free from Britain’s grip to form a nation following the principles of Gottfried Leibniz’s political economy. A free society based on agricultural/industrial and scientific progress with central bank(s) serving the people. The American Revolution was fought and won to enable such vision. On a side but related note, the French Revolution was intrinsically linked – and reactionary – to the American one. Contrary to popular belief, promulgated by a distorted and imposed narration of history in the hands of the “victors”, namely the Brits, the “French” Revolution was anything but indigenous or French. It was a British terrorist coup to preserve British hegemony on the continent and beyond following their defeat in the American Revolution. Britain had imposed decades of devastating economic policies (“Free” Trade) upon France that literately destroyed it and reduced its population to abysmal misery and poverty. De Lafayette sought to emulate the result of the American Revolution to free France and later the rest of the continent from Britain’s grip. Britain’s pro-British French network in France (Les Illuminés (the Enlightenment was a Neo-Venetian British machination aimed) and the likes of the Duke Duke of Orléans (who, after the Revolution became the Grand-Master of the Grand Orient Freemasonic Order of France), George Danton, Jacques Necker, et al.)) orchestrated and facilitated the necessary events (e.g. Affair of the Diamond Necklace, etc) that led to the so-called “French” Revolution.

Your assessment of the US today is on point. The hijacking of the US’ financial system (creation of the privately owned/ran “Federal” Reserve, decoupling of the gold standard, the implementation of the personal income tax (said, for what it’s worth, to be unconstitutional, etc)) combined with the decade-long de-industrialization morphed the US into a zombified state with two extremes – the rich/wealth and poor with little to no middle class.

There are definitely resemblances between ancient Rome (Greece, Egypt) and Washington. It was however and mostly, Masonic. When George Washington laid the first stone of the capital, he did so in a Masonic ritual. The Declaration of Independence was signed on an important astronomical timing (July 4th, 1776 at noon).

On a note related to YHWH/Jehovah, it should be noted that it was/is not the God of Freemasonry. Yahweh, associated with copper and a bronze serpent, existed in the Canaanite pantheon long before Judaism came to be. That Yahweh shared similarities with the Egyptian God of metallurgy, Ptah. There are no indication(s) of an evil character then.

In antiquity, south-eastern Canaan was a very important centre for copper smelting. While it is likely that there existed a patron deity of metallurgy, the identity of the Canaanite god of smelting remains unknown. Although some biblical writings suggest a south Canaanite origin of Yahweh, no details are provided concerning his worship prior to him becoming the god of Israel. This study explores whether Yahweh was formerly the Canaanite god of metallurgy. The following observations corroborate this hypothesis: (1) Yahweh was worshiped by the Edomites, and especially by the Kenites, a small tribe regarded as the Canaanite smelters; (2) the Israelite cult of Yahweh was associated with copper and with a bronze serpent, a typical symbol of metallurgy; (3) the melting of copper is considered in Exodus 4 as the specific sign of Yahweh; (4) a parallel exists between Yahweh and the god of metallurgy worshiped in Egypt (Ptah), Mesopotamia (Ea/Enki) and Elam (Napir), all of them being a mysterious lonely deity; (5) fighting the (other) gods is common to Yahwism and to ancient metallurgical traditions. These data suggest that, before becoming publicly worshipped in Israel, Yahweh was formerly the god of the Canaanite guild of metallurgists.

What did your Arab regimes as Assad killed Arab civils?

How many refugees did Saudi Arabia or UAE take?
They have money for other stuff but not to help the arab civils…

TS

True, why arent the refugees going to Saudi Arabia and other arab nations? I know why, its called the Kalergi plan.

shayan-karim

all is going on in Syria and refugees wouldn’t be if Turkey didn’t split oil on civil war fire for 9 years
You make your own problems you spent tens of billions for gulf state and US and Israel interests in Syria carried a refugee problem destroyed your economic relation with Syria lost hundreds of personels if that wasnt for your invasion and support of alqaeda even there was not a Kurdish issue in northern Syria etc
and now you achieved what in Syria?? absolutly nothing
Zionists and Persian gulf states make a full of you and were much more smarter than you in this case fulled you by using ottoman dreams as a carrot

This look like it will be very short lived. What happened when the TAF gets creamed? What will you say?

Ayman

We Turks were also Friends with Assad, Erdogan was the guy who made strategic agreements for trade and friendship with Syria.

We tried to convince him not to kill unarmed Protesters, sending several times our Ministers….

But he didnt listen and killed more and more…

We are on the side of the Syrian Civilians, which we try to protect.

Looking away, how civils getting bombed by Barrel bombs etc. despite you can do something, makes you also responsible!

Christian S

Turks look away how their al qaida allies killed thousands in aleppo , stealed aleppo industry and looted the city all endin up in turks hands. U looked away when erdorat made deals with barzani and deash stealn syrian oil and selln to israel untill ruaf lighted up the oilchain. U referrin to barrelbombs , this is old fashion propaganda only used by bought off fsa prostitues and zionist lobbie lovers, , u only protect terrorist in idlib to prevent al qaida from retreatin into turkey havn far more problems then refugees then

igybundy

I hate people who share their hasish..

John

Nope, that is not what happened.

Taz T

Turkey has faciliated the passage of foreign terrorists to Syria and arming them to teeth. They also bought oil from IS (Erdogan’s Son was involved in it) while they were slaughtering Syrian. Turkey is another occupier like Zionist regime and needs to leave Syria otherwise they will get bogged down in a foregn land.

igybundy

poutin HELP ME!!! SAVE ME!!!!

John

:P

Dibass

Turkey is clearly itching for a fight to do away with the Alawis. The only one in the way now is Russia. Turkey is hoping that Russia will reach that conclusion that the Assad regime cannot be saved.

Should the Alawites make the mistake of retaliating against Turkish forces even on Syrian soil, a full-blown war targeting the Alawi Army throughout Syria will ensue.

Taz T

Turkey has no right to be in Syria supporting Al-Qaeda terrorists, they are no different to Israeli Zioninist wh are occupying Golan Heights. Once Turkish families realise is using their children to establish an Islamic Ottoman empire which will fail they will not be happy with outcome. He does not care about them , you do not see him sending his children to invade and fight in a foreign land. https://ahvalnews.com/…/erdogans-laughter-days-after-deaths…

SAA and Hezbollah have entered in Saraqib accord Al Masdar news…

Ayman

Cant verify this from Turkish and FSA sources…
But even if true, their gathering in Seraqib would be crushed by Drones and Artillery and Missiles.

But i have read many reports, that many convoys of SAA were destroyed before the reached the city.

Ayman

Cant verify this from Turkish sources.
Many convoys were destroyed before they reached the city.
But if true, maybe it was tactical by Turkey to let them gather in the City.
They will then probably crash them with Artillery, Rockets and Drone attacks.

Rhodium 10

Turkish sources are fake!..they have been posted videos recorder of training and military drills!..SAA and Hezbollah are now inside Saraqib

Ayman

Al Masdar? ?
I cant verify this from Turkish or other sources.
All convoys were destroyed according to several sources.

Habib

If Iran can blow up US bases, fly drones and blow up protected oil refinery in Saudi Arabia. Expect all Turkey to be a target. Turkey is protecting evil, no one will support it. The world is laughing at Turkish pride.

I totally agree with you. While I would prefer for the YPG to talk with the KRG in order for the YPG to disassociate with the PKK leading to YPG negotiations with Assad in order for the YPG to lend military assistance to the SAA in Idlib, I would consider an attack on Turkish soil to be legitimate at this point..

I would lose all respect for Turkey if Turkey accepts help from Israel.

gustavo

What are you talking about ? Turkey-USA-NATO are coordinated. So, your last statement is meaningless.

Jose Martinez

Israel is not part of NATO. Turkey supposedly stands in solidarity with Palestinian rights. If Turkey were to accept military help from Israel in Syria, Turkey’s foreign policy would be as hypocritical as the US’ foreign policy if the US assists Al-Queda in Syria.

These “civilized” countries sure do seem to lack consistency on the world stage..

shayan-karim

Who dont now deep Turkey s MIT with Israel or economic relations???
all Turkey intervention in Syria since 2012 is for Israel interests
empty talk about Palestine by Erdogan is for make full of some arabs who still believe his lies
every one who wanna be famous in Muslim world talk about Palestine but only some of them really stand with Palestine

Jose Martinez

Really now… That’s quite interesting. I’m sure those Israeli ties will have political consequences for Erdogan. The AKP has already lost Istanbul in mayoral elections. I believe this military adventurism is going to prove costly for Erdogan..

Dibass

Turkey and Israel are enemies due to the Issue of Palestine. Turkey is the only Muslim country lending any credible help to the Palestinians. Please, forget Iran (the Shiite cowards). They are only strong when it comes to issuing threats, but they want the Muslim world to look upon them as some liberators against the AngloZionists.

The YPG and other grops you mentioned are Israel’s allies. Israel has always wanted a Rojava (Kurdistan). Turkey will never allow that, due to historic links between Kurds and the jews.

May I direct your attention to the fact that should Israel one day threaten Turkey as it does Iran, Turkey will acquire nukes immediately. There is already a deep defense cooperation between Turkey and Pakistan, particularly under the Erdogan administration. This has really alarmed the west who oppose it and considers it an attempt by Turkey to get nukes. Unlike Iran, Erdogan has openly expressed the desire to get nukes. He says that “why should other countries be barred from having nukes when others have them?” then he adds that “He cannot accept this”.

Turkey will maintain its ties with Russia. Russia is a great country deserving respect far better than the U.S.A. I think Putin will understand that the Alawis are not worth dying for. Putin can have all the influence he wants in the Middle East by siding with Turkey, not Alawis.

Dibass

This is not an invasion of Syria as a sovereign state. It is the invasion of Syria as a country taken hostage by a small apostate sect (Alawites) who constitute just 15% of the population.

This is not a declaration of war against Syria. It is a declaration of war against the Alawi apostate sect who dominate Syria’s leadership and security apparatus despite being a small minority of the population.

I agree with you on one thing: The Alawi sect Army has the right to fight the invading Turkish forces because this is war.

In case you have not noticed: Erdogan has the highest positive rating of ANY Muslim leader in the Sunni Muslim World which happens to be more than 85% of the global Muslim population.

geopolitica

Who are you to say they are apostate ? You fucking islamist is hard to understand but in syria we do the difference between religion and politics and i preffer 1000x an alaouite for president than a shitty sunni like erdo the sionist

Dibass

I din’t call them apostates. The Islamic scholars did. Based on their beliefs, Alawis are certainly apostates. And they are gonna have to lose in Syria. The Sunni Muslim world should never let them continue to rule.

The fact you are advocating for separation of Islam from politics is proof that you know nothing about Islam. Leadership is a very important factor, in fact the most important fact in a Muslim community. An evil leadership (live your apostates in Syria) will lead many to hell, just like a righteous government will lead many to eternal success.

Sorry, but Turkey isn’t backing down.

For your information, a U.S carrier strike group just entered the Mediterranean on Saturday night, and headed towards Syria. It looks like shit is about to get hot

If a nation like Turkey could invade Syria and stole lands then the Russians are week. We all know article 5 will not pass in aid of Turkey,the Greek will kot support it and many other NAto members. The Russian will just let the biggest competitor to just claim lands and resource and rise just to threatening they sphere of influence.

Dibass

A lot of people keep talking of how Erdogan want to annex a part of Syria, or how he wants Syria’s oil. These people are either a victim of propaganda or are propagandists themselves. Erdogan made it clear why Turkey is in Syria. Turkey is helping the Sunni majority (80%) over the Alawite apostates (15%) who have ruled the country since the Assad dynasty mounted a military coup long ago.

Bashar Al-Asad does not want a political solution that will lead to a free-and-fair election in Syria. Why? Because he is damn sure the Sunnis will vote out any Alawi candidate after suffering for so long at their hands.

Turkey wants to make sure Syria does not return fully under Alawi control. This has nothing to do with the U.S, although the U.S has its own agenda for trying to overthrow Assad (The U.S wants to cut off Hezbollah at Israel’s behest).

The Sunni world cannot accept a continuation of the Alawi sect who claim to be Muslims. Their believe threatens to pollute the Syrian Muslim faith and beyond. For example, they believe Ali (A.S) is God incarnate. This believe alone has ejected them from the fold of Islam.

NOW DO YOU DUMB HEADS UNDERSTAND WHY TURKEY IS IN SYRIA

Lone Ranger

Mossad propaganda lies.

Dibass

You are looking at this war only from current events. I will recommend that you take the time to dig into the history of Syria. Aqeeda is the most important factor in this war. Aqeeda means BELIEFS. Study the Alawite Aqeeda and the Sunni Aqeeda and you will understand why overwhelming majority of Sunnis do not support Sunni. The Sunni world is not only in the Middle East. Follow what other Sunni governments apart from the gulf puppet Sunnis say about the Syrian war. They all oppose Assad for one thing: His aqeeda.

And where did you hear that the Sunnis of Syria support Assad? From the propaganda videos and fake elections?

This is what Assad should do to prove to the world that the Syrians love him:

Agree to a Nationwide cease-fire and the return of refugees to Syria.
A nationwide free-and-fair election after the return of refugees.

I am sure not even Israel will oppose such an arrangement, because the outcome is predictably clear: A LANDSLIDE VICTORY FOR THE SUNNIS.

Turks have the right to ‘protect’ their citizens from other faiths, economic structures, laws etc. That right ends at the border.
Syria has the same rights, if not no one does.

Turks are not protecting Turkey from Assad. They are protecting the majority Sunni population that doesn’t have a voice. Your problem is that everything you know seems to come from SouthFront. Read alternative sources with an objective mind. Only then will you know much of what is going on behind the scenes.

So is that it, Syrian Soldiers lost almost everything that they gained from Al-Qaeda HTS, ALNUSRA, and what now, they will just go back, I mean wtf is this? I believe that Assad this time was abandoned by Putin, we all saw while Turks were making massacre on Syrian Troops with few armed drones, that Russia side did nothing, literally nothing to counter it, and what was most shocking a Turkish drone was dropping bombs on active Pantsirs, who knows maybe those Pantsir was not on Auto mode, maybe there was no one in the little cube room that you supposed to shoot missile from, or just maybe some of the Syrian Air Defense FORCES were smoking cigarettes aside, knowingly that aerial threats only come from Israhell, and maybe then their Russian partners are telling them do actually do their jobs to sit inside the pantsirs and search and track and shoot down missiles. But from Syrian side they lost a lot, lot of soldiers God Bless their souls, may they rest in peace, they lost a lot of equipment, Russia did nothing, doesn’t want to enter in War with Ottoman Turkey.
And they literally Erdo and Putin had few phone calls, and suddenly no air support from Russian and most important how the hell Turkish drones were just flying in swarms and killing so much in SOUTH IDLIB.

Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

I agree, Putin should act, the SAA is tired and wornout.
If just a hint that Russia is relaxing on their support to Assad, im affraid that thats it, Syria is lost.

I must agree that its concerning that the Turkeys dronestrike comes AFTER Erdogan and Putin had those phonecalls.
I accept that we dont and should not know everything but it aint the best signs from Russia.

But time will tell what is going to happend, lets just hope that something positive is brewing.
Syria deserves it.

Edit:
I just remember that someone told me that whatever Russia is doing, it takes a long time and should be seeing over a long period.
Lets hope…Lets hope.

World_Eye

Next now will be back on the table and making new DMZ, I guarantee you that 100%. Watch and see.

Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

We dont need DMZ´s, we need Turkey out of Syria.

StafJustice

Syria is not lost, just wait and see how the resistance will readjust to the situation now that they know, Putin and his air force will not come to the rescue against another country…

Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

Syria is still on the map thanks to RuAF.
Check out the progress, and the reason why, from october 2015.

Russia needs a free Syria, if Syria falls, no one will ever trust Russia again or let them help them.

But we dont know whats brewing in the background, so we should wait and see.
Im in no doubt though, that the next two weeks will be very interesting and tense for all the participants.

That will come at the cost of fighting NATO. Remember that Russia already as a problem with Ukraine. If the Russians get into a hot war with Turkey far from home, it will wear the Russian military down and they won’t be able to effectively defend Russia’s borders.

Right, Russia just can’t go Kung-Fu-ing everyone. There probably are many things that keep them from doing their hearts desire, but Putin is also Judo, not Karate. It is a different philosophy than most people are used to. We’ll see if Erdogan doesn’t end up flipped on his head.

We shall see if the Syrian Alawi Army defeats the Turks.
The battle is still raging. Time for Turkey to throw in some real punches.

jihady, 80% of SAA are sunnis

and old Assad made 1 big mistake instead 80 000 of you, jihadists, had to shoot 800 000. today there would be no problem.

How many soldiers did Syria have before the war? less than 400,000. What was the population of Syria before the war? 22 million
Not all the soldiers are Sunni, and the top influential positions are definitely retained for Assad’s loyalists.
Have you ever questioned why a minority population of just 15% controls 80 to 90% of a country’s security establishment? Doesn’t this look odd to you?

There are Sunnis in the Assad military, but these are mostly men who joined out of the need for employment, or Sunnis loyal to Assad.

You will find Sunnis working for Washington against their fellow Muslims. Examples include, Saudi Arabia, U.A.E, Jordan, etc.

This does not mean that they represent the views and interests of the broader Sunni population.

We all have to remember here that it is not in Russia’s interests to have Erdogan replaced by a hand-picked replacement from Langley. Another 2016 attempt.

SAA has downed 6 TURK drones so far today …

It looks like Russia-Turkey agreement was that Turkey will take posession of Idlib and SAA go back to the line. Economical and commercial interests of Russia with Turkey are much more powerful than ideology of right action in the World, like any western power.

Russian pragmatism.

Doesn’t stop Russia rearming Syria though.
