Turkey Strikes Syrian Army In Response To New Attack On Observation Post In Northern Hama

Image: aa.com.tr

Turkey said on Sunday that its military stuck positions of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in response to a new attack on one of its observation posts around Syria’s Idlib.

In an official statement, Ankara’s Ministry of National Defense said that the Syrian military shelled one of its posts in the northern Hama countryside near the town of Murak. The ministry said that the attack was “deliberate.” However, it resulted in material damage only.

Ankara said that its military retaliated by striking positions of the SAA in an unspecified location after “taking the necessary initiatives with Moscow.”

Syrian pro-government sources confirmed that positions of the SAA near the towns of Tell Bazzam and al-Kabariyah were shelled by the Turkish artillery. The sources claimed that the Turkish observation post near Murak was the source of the fire.

Two days earlier, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan vowed that his country will respond to any attack on Idlib’s observation posts. The Turkish military deployed additional reinforcements following that threat, mainly in Murak’s post.

Moscow and Damascus have not commented on Turkey’s claims, so far. The Ministry of Defense of Russia may reveal new information on the incident in the upcoming few hours, as it had been done before.

    It is apparent from this Turkish attack that their overt support of terrorism within Idlib has been forced by their proxies weaknesses.

    We have all witnessed years of similar overt support by the US Coalition of Terror in Syria and such attacks are invariably when their terror proxies do not have the combat abilities to do so themselves.

    The interventions by the US Coalition of terror, including Turkey, are all prefaced by allegations of ‘Threats to our Coalition Forces’.

    Turkey ,who supported isis ,must be driven out of occupied Syria,along with its zionist lackeys.

    • Mustafa Mehmet

      But how ? 🤔

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Actually, the Turkeys are playing from their Zionist masters playbook and so far they know that Russia is too weak to support the SAA reclaim its land. The Turkeys want to annex the best lands of Syria and create a puppet state like their Zionist masters have done with Mahmoud Abbas in Palestine or Hadi in Yemen. The SAA is too spread out and lacks concentrated manpower to fight on multiple fronts as it is facing entire NATO. Russia, so far has played along with its Americunt and Zionist “partners”. The Saudis, Americunts, Turkeys and Zionist just met in Istanbul to accelerate the terror campaign in Syria and for the first time terrorism is now getting close to Damascus. Russia and Iran needs to get their act together or Syria will be Balkanized for ever and then the same template will be applied to both Iran and Russia. The Americunts and their evil Brit arseholes are trying a color coded approach in Honk Kong too and if that fails, China will be subjected to terrorism and military pressure.The inability of Russia, China and Iran to forge a military alliance is only emboledning the Americunt, Zionist and NATO warmongers.

      • Willing Conscience (The Truths

        The Zionist hate Erdogan and want him dead, they’re spending money to help remove him politically, but they still have good relations with lots of Turkish opposition groups.
        The US has crippling sanctions imposed on Turkey but only because the want Erdogan out of office too, not because the US has anything against Turkey or the Turkish people, because they’re still maintaining good relations with all the other Turkish opposition parties [for after Erdogan’s gone].
        And the Saudi’s and the Arab league [minus Qatar] have one main priority atm, get rid of Erdogan and the Muslim brotherhood, but first they want all Turkish forces out of Iraq and Syria, and they’re also in Turkey right now spending up big on all the Turkish opposition parties, all anti MB parties, and any anti Erdogan news outlets brave enough to accept their cash.
        I don’t think Erdogan will get a thing from any of these 3 parties, he has nothing to offer any of them that they really want, the only thing all 3 of them really want his Erdogan out of office, Putin’s the only one who sees a future with Erdogan, God only knows why.
        I think there’s more chance they’ll be trying to help Assad and hinder Erdogan, not the other way around, the enemy of my enemy is my friend, and Erdogan’s become public enemy number one for the US, Israel and the Saudis, Assad’s taken second place now in the eyes of the Israelis, third in the eyes of the US, and become a potential friend to the Arab league, but Erdogan is nothing but adversarial to all of them, and openly hostile.

    • Rob

      If Turkish weapons and forces are there in Syria across Syrian border then Syria and Russia please don’t wait for another event just make them BBQ to protect Syrian border. This is justice with idiots just for pease, stability and prosperity in the region. Syrian nation also have own right to survive and develop.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Unless Russia acts, and it simply can not do that on its own as it has not enough boots on the ground, the Turkeys will keep on testing Russian limits. Putin will regret the kow towing to the Turkeys even after they shot down the SU-24 and various other violations of Syrian sovereignty. Russia needs to arm Iran and build a lasting military alliance or it is a target itself. If the Americunts, Zionists and NATO thugs succeed in Syria, then both Russia and Iran can kiss their collective arses good bye.

        • Rob

          Russia has own limitations, I cannot explain that here. In this war Iran, Hezbollah and Palestinian forces are playing very important role. Just these potential forces should be trained to extreme level for survival, health and safety and for effective invasions.

          Sending a soldier without training is lose of war. America have trained Afghani Taliban to extreme level. Therefore, they have defeated US, NATO and Israeli forces.

          • Pavel Pavlovich

            What good what that do? If Syrians are not even ready to fight for their turf.
            A stalemate would be enough, until such time – and such time must assuredly come soon – as the Russian people have woken up and shaken off the yoke of US colonialism. Then, and only then, the end of this unholy monopolar world will be quick to follow.

        • Mustafa Mehmet

          So Russia should send army to Syria? you mad? remember what happened in Afghanistan? Russia spent fortune already in Syria all this bombing plus helping assad

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Not really, Russia has barley 30 planes in Syria and has cut some of the most suicidal and idiotic deals with the Turkeys and the headchoppers and now the chickens are literally coming home to roost as the Americunts, Saudis, Zionists and NATO arsehole up the ante in Syria. Pretty soon the Russians and Iranians will have to decide either to work in unison or accept defeat. The Saudis and Emiratis are pouring in billions to arm the headchoppers in Syria. It is much larger than the “Bear Trap” they sprung against the USSR in Afghanistan circa 1980’s. The Iranians will stand by Syria and have the manoower, if they had proper weaponry and airpower, but Russian subservience to their Zionist “partners” is preventing that. The Americunts have smelled Russo-Persian divergence in Syria and are exploiting it. In reality Syria is now under complete NATO attack and occupation.

      • Rhodium 10

        NATO support both the terrorist nest of Idlib balcked by Turks..and also support the Kurdistan areas under US occupation!

      • IanSeed

        It is depressing but there is truth in that last statement.

        Deir Ezzor and Al Tanf are pretty much no go areas for the SAA because there are so many US bases and there is only limited clearing of Idlib.

        And then there is the Golan. it’s sad. Assad says he wants to liberate every inch but it looks a long way off.

      • Astrid Watanabe

        “Russia has…….cut some of the most suicidal and idiotic deals with the turkeys and the headchoppers and now the chickens are literally coming home to roost…….”

        I kept on trying to understand exactly what the agreement with Russia and Turkey was and blamed myself for not getting it. It did not occur to me that the deal actually WAS idiotic, or as Ma-Laoshi says ‘ambiguous and muddled’. So much for the hero Putin. Back to reality.

    But where is the courage Putin ones showed now he is facing the new Hitler/Erdogan, down his pants? Or how a zealot clown with a stolen university degree and the pretence of cock on a dung heap, representing one half of what became ones-more a third world country, is capable of taking hostage two of the most powerfull countries in the world and 50% of his own people

    • Zionism = EVIL

      I have never been a “fan” of Putin, he was just a low ranking and corrupt KGB hack with no real knowledge or the world. His only overseas posting was in friendly GDR and even then he failed to see the Berlin Wall fall and end of Soviet block. Russia went along with all illegal US wars since 911 false flag and supported all rogue Americunt sanctions and embargoes on Iran and DPRK.

    • Astrid Watanabe

      “But were is the courage Putin once showed…….”
      Good question………

      • gustavo

        Putin did not applied principles, courage, or justice. He just applied national and personal interest $$$$.

  • Johan

    Erdogan thinks by his balls, typical Turkish, not by his brains if he has them anyway. only afterwards then he get on his knees, remember the killing and shoting down of the Russian fighter jet. Poutin take that, know beter – think not, by his balls and bomb those retards to history. Take all the teritory he invaded and annexed and he will kiss your ass again.

    • Pavel Pavlovich

      It was the NATO HQ that shot down the plane, not Erdogan – his was not that cursed decision.

      • Johan

        History rewriting: – Turkey shot down the fighter – otherwise there would have been no reason why Erdogan did make his excuses to Russia – nor to pay for the lost . That Erdogan afterwards blames the world is just the nature of the scorpion .

      • gustavo

        Turkey is a NATO member, an yes it was a NATO resolution to shot down the Russia plane which was carried out by Erdogan, of course (Turkey must obey NATO resolutions as a member it is). To excuse Erdogan of this crime is just senseless.

  • Dick Von Dast’Ard

    Question now is, is it in Russia’s interest to prop up Syria, when it might be more prudent to be the Pan troglodytes, whilst three, four or five alley cats fight it out?

    • straw walker

      Russia has to decide what their end game is… They have their Mediterranean port and their airbase.
      Now what.
      Do they continue to support Assad who will soon end up at the Hague World court, on crimes against humanity
      Or do they change sides, and support Turkey with an settlement on the future .

      • Dick Von Dast’Ard

        Personally, I’d let the Turks have their Ottoman Empire v2.0 and sit back and watch the entertainment as Israel has a whole lot more trouble to contend with.

        • Mike

          Bullshit, turks are nothing but a bunch of zionist bootlickers and slaves, you turks will do what your masters will tell you.

            Well at one point in time the Ottoman Empire included the Levant and Judea.
            From a Russian perspective, why not allow the Turks expansion south?

          • Mike

            Ottoman empire is dead and buried, so no it doesn’t need a revival of an old corrupt and decrepit empire run, by the morons that had it become rotten corpse by WW1. Turkey get the hell out Syria.

      They have no “rights”
      Correction. They have the right to leave.
      If they stay I hope the SAA obliterate them all.
      That is all.

    • Jaime Alberto GALARZA CASTANED

      By your answer, you are accepting that Turkey is there illegally. You know it is Syria’s land. To say that Assad leads a band of cutthroats is quite shameless indeed. The real cutthroats -and we have seen their exploits such as killing children and eating human organs- are ISIS and other similar scum. Erdogan supports some of that vermin.

  • straw walker

    Assad has brought the Syrian war upon himself. At the very beginning of the uprising he could of easily resolved the matter by finding some common ground with the people of Syria.. His ego would not allow for anything other than a military outcome. You reap what you sow.
    Al Salam to all those that are fighting for their families and freedom.

    • Dick Von Dast’Ard

      You mean allow the Muslim Brotherhood (Arab Spring) to take over?

      I find your sympathies direction disdainful.

      • straw walker

        No I’m referring to an negotiated settlement. This was strictly an internal issue that Assad could of easily handled… Now his country is totally collapsed into warfare, ( involving foreign nations cheery picking their wants) and with every city leveled beyond repair, hundreds of thousands dead, and millions fled to find real freedom and safety..
        Was that a solution…??

        • Dick Von Dast’Ard

          The troubles started when the MB turned violent.

          • Mike

            You turks have always been violent and stupid.

        • RichardD

          You’re a liar. You’re well aware that the Jew world order terror coalition has spent upwards of $100 billion, maybe more, and flooded Syria with tens of thousands of regime change terrorists. And that without that there wouldn’t be a war.

        • Mike

          Again get out of Syria you turkish animal.

        • Astrid Watanabe

          “This was strictly an internal issue that Assad could have easily handled……”

          Exactly. Until the US decided “Assad must go” and intervened by supporting the “opposition”, sending in the headchoppers etc. Assad alone would have handled it quite well.

      • Mike

        I find your presence disdainful.

    • RichardD

      Syria was invaded by Jew world order Yinon plan subversives. Many of them from Turkey. The local people had nothing to do with it. The invaders fired at the demonstrations and tried to pin their crimes on the government.

    • AJ

      What a laugh if you think HTS (Al Queda) are remotely interested in freedom lol

    • Mike

      Your idea of freedom jihadi lover is chopping non wahhabi believers heads off. Invaders out of Syria.

    • Jaime Alberto GALARZA CASTANED

      Either you ignore or you prefer not to say anything about the western as well as the support terrorists got from regional powers such a Saudi Arabia, Turkey and other Gulf countries at the beginning of the war of aggresion. Qatar has recognized its role in this, for example.

    • gustavo

      Totally stupid. This war was designed and carried out by Israel-USA-NATO with the help of Qatar, Saudis, Jordan, and Turkey. Israel wanted Syria to be destroyed through terrorists, and it was really successful on doing it. Fortunately, Russia has stopped terrorists here and has avoided to extend this idea to Iran. Yes, Iran was and still is in the eyes of these three mad organizations.

  • World_Eye

    Hmm, well Turkey has a big deal to close with Russia, the S-400 and the money are big, few billions.
    Lately Russia doesn’t warn or take any steps in favor of Syria when it comes to Turkey.
    As I read it here good, Moscow and Ankara even coordinated this attack, like Russia gave permission to the Turks to struck the Syrians. Well Russia defends Syria full 4 years now, with daily air-strikes.
    Russia gives a lot of money for the bombs and all equipment all that cost money.
    And Russia states that they give everything from their pocket. I mean Russia save Syria, Russia save Bashar Al-Assad’s government.I really don’t understand why when it comes to Turkey’s interest Russia degrades their relationship with Damascus, or it looks like that, I don’t know what happens internally but seems that Russia doesn’t want to be involved in this war for long. They want out.
    Unfortunately ISIS was the main problem the main terrorism and was wiped out, and now only the big players are seated in Syria. The US with their Kurdish friends, Turks with their Al-Qaeda friends and Russia with Syrian Army friends. I believe that Turkey wants the goal that it propose in one of the summits, to make the Al-Qaeda a political wing in Syrian parliament and government.
    Who knows what is the real agenda behind this, with the Turks that Russia don’t say nothing.

    “Ankara said that its military retaliated by striking positions of the SAA in an unspecified location after “taking the necessary initiatives with Moscow”.

    And what were the necessary initiatives I wonder, a quick warning to the Russians to evacuate the areas the Turks were about to attack, lucky Erdogan, he is quite privileged isn’t he.
    So now the Turks and the Israelis are both allowed to strike the SAA with impunity, but only if they coordinate the strike with Putin first, God help the SAA.
    Putin’s diplomatic and geopolitical maneuvering are impressing a lot of SF readers BUT NOT ME, I think he’s now making the biggest mistake he’s ever made, and I’ll scream it from the treetops, he’s being as treacherous and self serving as any US or Israeli leader has ever been, and Assad and the Syrian people definitely don’t deserve to be treated this way.
    I’ve always admired the resilience and determination of the Russian people, and during the Soviet era I also admired their loyalty to their allies, 100% loyalty, but things must have changed recently, that’s if the Syrian situation is anything to go by.
    You’re an idiot Putin, whatever you’ve been taking lately you have to stop it, it’s frying your brain and driving you insane.
    Lets see if the Russian people find Putin as popular when the Russian soldiers start complaining about his insane logic. When they start complaining about the fact that their leader is helping someone [Erdogan] who’s in turn is doing everything he can to help someone else [rebels] try to kill as many Russian soldiers as they can.
    Logic for insane people, but the Russian people aren’t insane, Lavrov for president, stick the other bloke in the Asylum where he belongs, don’t let him destroy his own [up until now] brilliant legacy.
