Turkey Says Syrian Army Shelled One Of Its Posts In Idlib, Injured Three Service Members

Donate

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has shelled a Turkish military observation post in southern Idlib, Turkey’s Ministry of National Defense claimed in an official statement on June 13.

“Some 35 mortars were fired from al-Shariah region, controlled by the Syrian forces in the Idlib de-escalation zone. They targeted our observation point number 10, located on mount Zawiya,” the statement reads, according to the Anadolu Agency.

Three Turkish soldiers were injured slightly in the mortar attack, which also damaged facilities, equipment and materials inside the post.

The ministry said that the Turkish government had taken “necessary initiatives” with Russia regarding the attack.

Pro-opposition activists released a video showing a massive fire at the observation post in the early hours of June 13. While the video confirms that the post came under attack, it does not assert that the SAA was behind the shelling.

The shelling coincided with a ground attack by Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies. The attack violated a ceasefire agreement that was announced a few hours earlier, only.

This was the fourth such attack on Turkish observation posts in northern Syria. The last three attacks targeted a post near the town of Sher al-Maghar in northwestern Hama. Ankara didn’t response to any of them.

    What the fuck Turkish forces doing in between terrorists in Syria? The Turkish forces for own respect should be with Syrian forces not with terrorists.

    • gustavo

      you dream, Turkey is a NATO member.

      • Rob

        Turkey is a NATO member but by this membership these Jews will sink whole Islamic world by Turkey and when Turkey left alone then they will be kicked out from NATO. These Jews should never be trusted.

        • verner

          turkey has never been more than a stop gap for the disintegrating states of A, of little if any interest but a Black Sea doorman and a place where the ever evil neo-nazi morons from washington c´dc can store the nukes, they are itching to use against russia and and

      • Xoli Xoli

        Turkey is only NATO member verbally for its bases but not in reality.

        • gustavo

          Oh yeah, Turkey is a NATO member in the imaginary part of the complex plane. Their plane basis, nuclear weapons, and missiles systems are just in the imaginary part.

          • Xoli Xoli

            Thank you thumbs up.

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    And? Do they expect help or something? Lol

    • Ayman

      No from a Regime which kills civilians/children you can expect anything.
      But would not be the first Time when Turkey answers with BORA or SOM long range Presicion Strikes against Pro Assad Forces.

      • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

        Turkey is illegally occupying syria, turkey will be the ones to receive HEAVY BOMBARDMENT!!!!!!!

        • Mustafa Mehmet

          Then you will pay the very heavy price

    • Mustafa Mehmet

      Do not forget if it is true. this means war start running towards assd to save you

  • occupybacon

    Turkey, please send some F-16’s over Idlib, Russia can’t wait to salute them

    • gustavo

      Russia is allowing Turkey to behave as it likes in Syria and pleases Turkey in many ways.

      • Ayman

        Russia has its own long time interests with Turkey and owns nothing to Syria. It has spend millions for operations, gives free weapons to SA. Without Russia Rebels probably would had already besiege Damascus.

        • gustavo

          Totally agree, but the point is that Russia claim behaves different from Occident powers, and his behavior on Idlib is exactly like any other Occident power (First my $$$ and later my ideology, it does not matter what). In additon, Russia behavior with respect to Israel does not look very different than USA (IL-20). What is the sense of given S-300 system to Syria that is not allowed to use it ? Turkey is a selected NATO member, and NATO(USA) wants to destroy Russia. If you believe Turkey has different ideology, well ….Sorry but you do not understand what being a NATO member is.

  • gustavo

    Very good news, I hope SAA continue in this way. Turkish (NATO member) must be out of Syria now.

  • Joe Dickson

    It sounds like it was bombed by Turkey’s own terrorists.

  • Johan

    Turkish fals Flag.

    • gustavo

      Fals or not Fals, we all hope Syria push back Turkey (NATO member) back its home for good, using kind or unkind methods.

  • verner

    hey turks get out of the way when the SAA is in the process of freeing the country from the occupying forces, like jhadists financed by the squatters (desperately afraid that the war (they started together with the disintegrating states of A will get to the Golan heights and so on) and the special forces the Disunited states of A has located in Syria once and for all – and once there they are coming for the squatters big big way.

  • Cheryl Brandon

    They have to lie as, they The turk defiantly occupies North Western Turkey and use WAHABHISTS as their fifth column. on SYRIAN TERRITORY?? get to F,..k out of Syria

  • Cheryl Brandon
  • Dušan Mirić

    Isn’t it usual destiny of every invader?

  • Xoli Xoli

    Turkey has no Syrian government permission to be in Syria with its army and artillery.Turkeys false flag attacks and excuses are not welcome in Syria.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Putin and Erdogan illegal agreements must be cancelled and Turkey futsek out off Syria. Syria dies not need terrorists creator Turkey.

  • gustavo

    Well done, finally..as we say in Spanish ” Hasta que te pusistes los pantalones compadre.” Terrorists and Turkish must get out of Idlib right now or else. Turkey has been able to stuck Russia in Idlib through its commercial and economical agreements. So, Syrian must not expect much help (as before) from Russia to recover IDlib area to Syria. Offensive must not stop at all for any reason by civil protection.
