Turkey Says Its Troops Captured 18 “Alleged” Syrian Soldiers

Turkish troops have captured 18 “alleged” soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), while they were conducting operations in the northeastern part of the war-torn country, the Turkish Ministry of National Defence announced on October 29.

“18 people who were claimed to be the Regime elements were captured alive in the southeast of Ras al-Ayn during the search/detection/reconnaissance/security activities,” a press release by the ministry reads.

The ministry added that the issue is being “examined and coordinated” with the authorities of the Russian Federation.

Syrian pro-government activists confirmed that the captives are indeed service members of the SAA, questioning the doubts casted by the Turkish side.

The Syrian soldiers were captured in the morning of October 29, when Syrian militants backed by Turkish battle tanks attacked their position near Ras al-Ayn. Videos released by Turkish-backed militants themselves show that they executed a 19th soldier after capturing him alive.

Earlier this month, Russia and Turkey reached an agreement facilitating the deployment of Syrian troops and Russian forces along Turkey’s border with northeast Syria in exchange for the withdrawal of Kurdish fighters.

The Turkish-backed militants attack was a major violation of the agreement. These militants, that belong to the so-called Syrian National Army (SNA), have been accused of numerus war crimes since the beginning of Operation Peace Spring in northeast Syria.

ty Zionist pig Putin……..Agreement Idlib 2.0 says hello

Mike

Fuck off Israeli pig.

Friend of Russia

Ridiculous. Turkey captured Syrian soldiers for operating inside Syrian territory. Had there been a reliable force anywhere inside Syria, the reverse of this situation would have happened

S Melanson

A good point. As for reliable, another good point. Where are Syria’s allies?

Tudor Miron

Just that you know. This above creature calling himself friend of Russia is not a friend but a troll from their pathetic Russia bashing detachment.

S Melanson

Yes I know. I lectured him on questioning Russian bravery in another post. I happen to agree with him on this. I support what Russia is trying to do through diplomacy but how they are going about it is a concern. I see consequences of this having potential to seriously undermine Russian diplomatic efforts. Maybe I am seeing this wrong if you can help explain.

Tudor Miron

I suggest that we simply wait and see how it unfolds.

S Melanson

Agreed

Friend of Russia

Friend of Russia doesn’t imply that I will support all the foolishness committed by the Russian leader.

Mikronos

The Iranians? No longer in Syria – a deal made for Benny the Jew and the west oriental gentlemen in Jiddah.

©igare☘☘e?Sm⚽️k?ng?Man️?

Syria should declare war on Turkey after an ultimatum of a couple of days.
‘Leave Syria or it is war’. With the Kurds fully on Assad’s side.

Mikronos

That time will come. Syria has some other needs to be done first. There’s still Idlib and some resident evil in Draraa. Al Tanb needs cleared and the east bank liberated. Then Erdogan will get his push.

gustavo

Oh WOW, of course, Russia continue pleasing Trukey…follow the money ($$$).

Mikronos

Turkey and Israel are useful at present. Both have records that need reciprocating. In time.

©igare☘☘e?Sm⚽️k?ng?Man️?

I R A N is equally guilty for allowing Turkey to commit genocide against the Kurds.
Perhaps Turkey’s genocide against the Kurds suits Iran just fine…

Mike

Fuck the kurds, they are useless scum.

©igare☘☘e?Sm⚽️k?ng?Man️?

No, You Are !

Xoli Xoli

Mike stop lying the heading says Turkey soldiers capture Syrian soldiers not Kurds.Russian news Sputnik also confirmed this.You ars God chosen Israeli stop be having 8like a chameleon.

S Melanson

Now they have executed a soldier of the SAA. Turkey cannot deny direct involvement given tank support. The agreements tell us one thing, actions tell us something else.

The deconfliction agreement between Russia and Israel comes to mind as to how the Astana Process is working in practice, but in this case, Syria is getting the short end of the stick and Iran no where to be seen.

What kind of diplomacy is this?

Redadmiral

“What kind of diplomacy is this”? Unfortunately, the kind that gets 19 year old SAA soldier murdered by Jihadi Turk demonstrating his cowardly fucktard instincts. Hate to think the vid I watched yesterday was the preface to a fine young soldier’s death. Maybe you saw the same vid., 2 SAA soldiers captured by Turktards, the younger of the 2 being kicked and punched.

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

why did they let themselves be captured???

Bill Wilson

They probably found themselves trapped by superior mobile forces so thought they could avoid capture by changing into civilian clothing.

Tudor Miron

I would assume that there are lots of Turkish officers bribed by US/UK that are order now to do their utmost to undermine Russia/Turkey agreement. Let’s see how it unfolds.

Ceasar Polar

This ErdoCunt is being exposed, he is using his terrorists force as first line, backed by regular turkish army. For this facts, Erdogan should be trailed in International court for his crimes against the Syrian people.

Ceasar Polar

Shame on the Turks, and shame on erdoCunt. Using terrorists as front force and backing those terrorists with his regular army. It’s like he thinks he can do what the US have failed to accomplish.
Get ready for war, it’s coming to Turkey, and say thanks to your freemasonic-devil-handsign-flashing ErdoCunt.

Xoli Xoli

I wonder what the best friend Putin respond.As he broker peace agreement between him and Erdogan in Sichi.There is also De-escalation agreements between Russia and Putin in Idlip.

Xoli Xoli

Where is all truth and reality denials.

Mikronos

These birds deserve some targeted attention from the Iraqi Air Force.

World Wisdom

The Turkish PIGS shall go to their criminal and terrorist country!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TURKISH PIGS, FAQU! TURKISH REGIME IS THE MOST CRIMINAL ONE IN EUROPE – EVERY YEAR THOUSANDS OF TURKISH CITIZENS HAVE BEEN MURDERED BY THE REGIME! TURKEY SHALL COLLAPSE!

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

SAA should capture 36 torki rats and burn them alive

PZIVJ

Syrian regime soldiers taken prisoner by Turkish-allied Syrian National Army would “have their status settled on Wednesday” and be released soon, Russia’s RT Arabic-language service reported on Tuesday.
