Turkey Suffers Casualties From Attacks Of Its Own Proxies. 3 Soldiers Injured

Support SouthFront

Late on January 16, three Turkish service members deployed in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib were hit by sniper fire.

A jihadi group calling itself “Saryat Ansar Abu Baker As-Siddiq” claimed responsibility for the attack. In a statement, the group said its fighters targeted the three service members, who were manning a post in the town of Batabo in northern Idlib, with sniper rifles equipped with thermal sights.

A source in the National Front for Liberation, Turkey’s main proxy in Greater Idlib, told the Enab Baladi news outlet that one of the injured Turkish service members is now in a critical condition. The Turkish Ministry of National Defense has not commented on the incident, yet.

Turkey Suffers Casualties From Attacks Of Its Own Proxies. 3 Soldiers Injured

Saryat Ansar Abu Baker As-Siddiq official statement.

Very little is known about Saryat Ansar Abu Baker As-Siddiq, which may be to be linked to al-Qaeda. On November 27 of 2020, the group carried out its first attack on Turkish forces in Greater Idlib. The group’s cells attacked a Turkish post in the town of Marj al-Zuhur in western Idlib with a booby-trapped motorcycle. No losses were reported back then.

The second attack took place on December 6. A Turkish service member was killed and another was injured after being shot by the group’s fighters near the town of Maataram in southern Idlib.

Some Syrian activists believe that the jihadi group is linked to al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, which is ruling over Greater Idlib with a direct support from Turkey. This is yet to be confirmed.

The Turkish military maintains more than 60 posts, camps and bases throughout Greater Idlib. Most of these positions are located in areas controlled by terrorist groups. Ankara has been doing very little at all to address the threat posed by these groups. Instead, Turkey prefers to call them a ‘moderate opposition’ and provides them with a direct support.

Karma. Play with fire, you get burned.

Great news,this is what happens when you try and feed a Rabid Dog.comment image

FlorianGeyer

I suspect that the rabid jihadi dog has been infected by the US :)

Oh my God. Nancy Pelosi likes cabbage.

johnny rotten

In asylums the patients keep them sedated and in straitjackets, and in some cases they lock them up in padded cells, while in Idlib they let them walk free and even give them weapons, who is the madman here?

FlorianGeyer

Exactly, and the madmen are being used by the West because NATO infantry as a fighting force against a foe who has real courage and the acceptance of death are a shadow of their forefathers who slugged it out with valour until the ‘enlightened’ 80’s.

NATO countries then cry when some of their paid and trained madmen indulge in terrorism within NATO countries.

This is what irrational madmen do :)

The best news is the scums in fighting

Good to know … which posters aren’t Muslims or turkeys

Thanks for the feedback … lol

Don’t forget us Christian boys Twat.

No one likes a Twat.

tzatz

F/k off hoy

rightiswrong rightiswrong

You all upset Twat, lol.

Can’t you curse, in your own gibberish?
You using white Christian swearwords just shows how dependent you are on us.

tzatz

Dependent? Yopt fayu matya

rightiswrong rightiswrong

Gibberish, Yiddish, Gayish.

The Peoples Front of Judea hail you, Bigus Dicus, lol.

John Wallace

What about the Judean Peoples Front or the Front for the People of Judea.

rightiswrong rightiswrong

A film about his “homeland”, and he couldn’t get it.

Twat is a very naughty boy. His father was a European soldier. Probably a travelling German, lol.

John Wallace

He would have to have a normal sense of humor to get it. Anyway as he has stated he is here only to wind up people , not offer anything of value.
Twat where I come from is a very desirable female part. Such as that old US airline TWA joke , The hostess asks if the passenger would like some TWA coffee to which he replies no thanks I would like some TWA tea.

rightiswrong rightiswrong

Can’t call him a wuss y though, or words to that effect, lol.

John Wallace

How about a soft prick unable to raise himself to any level so therefore totally useless.

rightiswrong rightiswrong

John, that’s a great description of him. Howard Wolowitz comes to mind when I imagine him, I wonder does his Mom give out the brisket with each service, lol.

John Wallace

I was thinking more of Portnoy’s Complaint where the boy uses a steak out of the fridge to wank then that night his mom cooks the steak for dinner. As he is eating the steak he can’t help feeling that this is the second time he has had this steak.. I don’t watch the big bang so unaware of who does what.

rightiswrong rightiswrong

I’ve never heard of Portnoy’s Compliant, but it does sound more like Twat than Wolowitz. lol

John Wallace

Portnoy’s Complaint tells the humorous monologue of a lust-ridden young Jewish bachelor who confesses to his psychoanalyst his most intimate, shameful secrets. It caused a storm of controversy over its explicit and candid treatment of sexuality, including detailed depictions of masturbation using various props, including excrement. Yep , sounds like twat.

rightiswrong rightiswrong

I’d never heard of it until you mentioned it earlier. Seems to be a common problem among that community, lol.

John Wallace

Yes I read it about 1970/71 .What time zone are you. If you were watching cricket would you be watching Central Districts or India at the moment

rightiswrong rightiswrong

GMT, the cricket is on Sky now. I was watching the Bucks win earlier, went to bed, and had the weirdest dream that I was being chased by people calling me a covidiot, swear to God, lol.

John Wallace

Rain stopped play..On Sky. I haven’t bothered with Am footy but waiting to see if the Warriors can win more than two games this year not that I follow them too much..

rightiswrong rightiswrong

I haven’t watched cricket since the 90s, not really my game. Warriors? Are they Indian Super League?

John Wallace

No , they are a rugby league team from NZ playing in the Aussie comp. I thought as we seem to be on the same time we might be a little closer to each other..

rightiswrong rightiswrong

I was going to say British Rugby League. It’s 07.00hrs here, as I said, a dream woke me, the wife left for work a while ago, so I just checked the mail, haven’t been sleeping well lately.

John Wallace

I know where you are . We are normally 12 hrs apart but we have daylight saving. The just woke up and Sky suggested where you are. We have Sky too which was part of yours but now seperate.This site is locking up so I give pfor now.

John Wallace

Having trouble typing on here but OK elsewhere.

rightiswrong rightiswrong

Munster are my team, the mighty Munster.

John Wallace

The AB’s lost to Munster 1978 . We haven’t fforgiven them yet.

rightiswrong rightiswrong

We haven’t forgotten it neither. That’s why we have a superiority complex over the rest of our island, lol.
A good team at the moment, but Leinster are always getting the best from IRFU HQ. They need it of course.

rightiswrong rightiswrong

Don’t forget the 6-6 in 73, and the 27-14 over the Maori ABs in 2016.
A great tribute was given by them to Anthony Foley, we don’t forget those things neither.

John Wallace

The island but I did live and work in WA for some years..Having problems typing so will leave it for now. I watch your league when I can..

rightiswrong rightiswrong

Great stuff, talk later.

rightiswrong rightiswrong

I’m in the land of saints and scholars, you must be in the land of the Southern Star. Is it the island or the continent. My wife’s brother is in Perth.

rightiswrong rightiswrong

Just googled that, and yes, Twat does seem like the character of Portnoy’s Compliant, lol.

Funnily enough, Howard Wolowitz is also like that, but made for prime time TV. No wonder Freud was always banging on about Mommy issues, runs through their culture.

That’s why Turkey is making so many UAVs … Because their soldiers are so low experience, morale and training , they are very easy targets.
