Turkish Army Conducts New Reconnaissance Mission In Southern Idlib (Video)

Donate

On April 6, a unit of the Turkish Army conducted a reconnaissance mission in the southern Idlib countryside and the northern Hama countryside, the Syrian pro-opposition news outlet Enab Baladi reported.

Enab Baladi said that the Turkish unit had visited the villages and towns of Khan Shaykhun, Murak, Lahaya, Lataminah, Kafr Zita and al-Sayyad during its mission.

Syrian opposition activists claimed that the Turkish Army is planning to establish a new observation post in one of these six villages and towns. However, these claims have not been yet.

The Turkish Army has established four observation posts since the beginning of 2018 in the towns of Andan and al-Eis in Aleppo governorate and in the towns of Tell Tuqan and Sarman in the Idlib governorate.

Russia and Turkey agreed to establish twelve observation posts in northern Syria during the Astana talks, according to Tukey’s Presidential Spokesman Ibrahim Kalin.

Turkish sources say that these observation posts are aimed at imposing and monitoring the de-escalation agreement. However, Syrian pro-government activists doubt that, as the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) has continued its attack against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) after the posts’ establishment.

    When Syria asked Turkey how much land should we give the only answer was More, More, More

    • You can call me Al

      Syria will not give an inch.

      • Roger Snellman

        Hate to ruin your day but Turkish troops are already in Syria and a taking all the land they can get their hands on. Didn’t you see the pictures of the leaders of Turkey, Iran and Russia meeting. Syria was the odd man out which proves they are carving up what is left of Syria. One village for you and one for you and two for me …

          Hate to ruin your fantasy but Turkey has to turn over 6 points to Russia as none are allowed more than 6 according to Astana agreement. People like you are so clueless as both Russia and Iran told Turkey to return the Afrin region , but the posturing by Turkey will cost it’s prominence there new players being added should surprise some. Why the announcement of the Uighurs leaving s the West is hoping this will prevent China from joining Astana Talks and then going after them also the group is known as TI Party. Things like this won’t be believed by a 6 yo child about them leaving, should be interesting. Will see Hatay revert back to Syria should be interesting as this was all a cover to steal the Golan and genocide Palestinians, their attempt has come with serious repercussions, as they say “sow what you reap and so shall you reap”!

            The Syrian Civil War is just a cover so Israel can steal the Golan and kill Palestinians? Please correct me if I am wrong but was under the impression Israel already did that long ago. I agree with the premise that as Syria is carved into pieces Israel may get a scrap or two. The big winners will Turkey and Iran who will get the Lions share of Syria. Who was buying Syria’s oil from ISIS? Who was funding ISIS? Who was supplying ISIS? .. and other anti Syrian groups. Hezbollah/Iran also want the Lions share of Syria. Who are you betting on Iran or Turkey?

            Well the UN has never given any approval of Israel’s actions as they are the worst violators of the UN resolutions for decades. Rather moot to think they can win in 2006 Syria was going the UN route to ensure the return of Syrian territory. The partition is like a wank jobs wet dream dreamed up in one of the Psychiatric institutions masquerading as think tanks. The failure of the plan was based on so much annoying convoluted nonsense it becomes very banal to even discuss the weak premise. So your assumption that I thought there was any chance of success is premature as it won’t happen in the future, but maybe the Palestinians claiming right of return as they are the only children of Israel in the region.

            Now let’s look at those groups first then we will look into the funding and backing of them,We all realize ISIS/ Al Qaeda/FSA are the same all they do is just keep name changing as per usual of the Policy Yak tanks descriptions they are different only in name.Now by any stretch of the imagination we are expected to believe they are different but that is not the case.When we get to know these answers it becomes easier to see the backers and those funding training and supporting them as it has been spelled out by those who refuse to be a sell out like you are.Everyone knows who pays attention they are funded by the GCC and supported by NATO, just facts that haven’t escaped the a lot of the public and Press who don’t sell out or politicians for that matter.

            You have that Western Media bias assumption that Iran and Hezbollah are there in great numbers when also so are the PLA and local Palestinian brigades who have been refugees in that country since 1947. The so called anti Syrian groups can you name them and please don’t name any of these terrorist groups as such Jaish al Islam are ultra conservative Wahhabi foreigners. This group had the infamous “Tawba prisons” they made claims of thousands of prisoners alive turns out only a few hundred were alive many thousands have been killed and buried in mass graves in Douma and yet these are the ones politicians in the west support. Funny how all the others did the same in East Ghouta yet we never hear about it in the western media.The false reports of chemical attacks were weak when the claim was made 150 dead then revised down to 70 , Russia negotiated a quick truce and went in and investigated the region , the West will have egg on their face after some idiot USAF General authorized that attack on the T-4 base. Seems nothing has been found to corroborate the false statements, similar to the Benghazi Sarin used in 2013.

            Iran only wants one thing and that is stability as this greatly improves their economy and regional stability which those in the west don’t want, as I have said this is the alt route of OBR, never really sure if anyone can keep up to what I say at times as this is the most viable route for it.When you have good economic times even those countries around will try to emulate the other region’s prosperity and political acumen which affects most of the surrounding countries and US/NATO economic power structure in the region.

            Turkey along with NATO were supporting the ISIS oil trade and economy and nothing ever ran smoothly unless you call beheading dissenters and soldiers running smoothly only if the blade cuts clean you could say that.The Turks are as crooked as the day is long in the summer they will be overthrown when they are no longer needed. You ask me Turkey can’t fight nor can they control those who fight for them so them of being a lasting presence is unlikely. Would never support Muslim Brotherhood fanatics such as the AKP are see that they will destroy Turkey in the long run. The problem is Erdogan and his Neo-Ottoman’s are too strongly supported by Sunni Salafis may as well call them brother to Saudi Arabia Barbarian Wahhabis, so both their demises are expected by me. We will see more antics by Bandar in Syria as they helped get those New 2017 Hill-Rom tanks for the chemical labs in East Ghouta.

            Way too many who don’t know what is going on and too much for everyone to know at once will always work in the western medias favor as they will never allow the real facts come out. Every country there would need whole new understanding to become minimally knowledgeable about what is going on.

        • You can call me Al

          and what has Erdoğan stated numerous times ?.

          Sorry Roger, sit back and watch and then give me a tick when I m proved correct.

          PS Isn’t it Kebab and sweet tea time ?.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Turkey has played both sides too long and will soon see themselves in a predicament of their own making, this land grab is weak and they know it s they can find themselves soon looking at a defeat of which they will never recover from.

  • You can call me Al

    Be careful Turkey, don’t whore yourself out again or you will be obliterated in Syria – keep to the pact although I know you have little honour left.

  • Ottoman “reconnaissance mission”. It’s like saying that Hulagu Khan conducted a reconnaissance mission to Baghdad in 1258!

  • pat bredl

    Does anyone in the world have a clue what Erdogan is up to? Does Erdogan know what he is up to?

    • Mustafa Mehmet

      Reyis erdogan knows what he up to not to worry. For you to fight now 🤦🏻‍♂️

    • Mustafa Mehmet

      Erdogan knows what’s he up to. for you to find out. what’s he up to

  • Smaug

    Indeed I believe that Afrin is turning into another Cyprus, complicated security arrangement and everything.
