Turkish-Backed Militants Target Syrian Army With Guided Missiles And Grad Rockets (Videos)

Donate

The Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation (NFL) supported a failed attack of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) in northern Hama on June 27 by targeting vehicles and positions of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) with guided missiles and Grad rockets.

The group released two videos showing its fighters destroying a van carrying several Syrian soldiers and a truck armed with a 57mm gun near the town of Tell Huwash in northern Hama with anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs).

In a third attack, NFL fighters launched a barrage of Grad rockets at several positions of the SAA in the northwestern part of Hama.

These attacks are an example of the NFL strong cooperation with HTS, which was the main branch of al-Qaeda in Syria up until 2017. Despite this, Turkey is still supporting the group, according to local sources.

    Why doesn’t Russia use TOS to toss them?

    • klove and light

      Partners dont shoot at each other

      • occupybacon

        But they shot the Russian pilots

        • Xoli Xoli

          Yes because Putin suppress Russian forces preamtive attack on enemy to please Erdogan, Satanyahu, Bolton Pompeo and foolish Trump.

    • Daniel Miller

      Cuz Russia dosent have any heavy armored division or NBC unite deployed to Syria.

      • occupybacon

        But why?

        • Daniel Miller

          ……ok are you acting naive or are you really naive?
          Russia’s role in Syria is air support and some spec ops support thats it they have no actual heavy unites or standard motorized rifle divisions deployed in Syria for that matter they only have naval infantry (Marines) deployed to protect the naval base and air base that is it.

          • occupybacon

            They could have the nice TOS systems for protecting Latakia bases, Idlib is pretty close to that.

          • Daniel Miller

            Tell me in what world wold a TOS-1A with a max range of 6km and a desinghed offensive/sige role be of use to a defensive detachment of Russian marines? You do realise that the TOS is operated by NBC troops not the marines right?

          • occupybacon

            Russia gave Syria few of those and they fired over the area where the Russian plane was shot down and pilots killed.

          • Daniel Miller

            Pilot* If you are refering to any of the 2 incedenc one of the SU24 and the other of the SU25.
            Also no they did not Russia used Cruise missile strikes vs the FSA
            And the Syrian govt did not have the TOS-1A in 2015 and in 2018 feb they did not even come close to be in range of the TOS-1A.
            But Russia is not stupid their is a reason they have airdefenses in their bases (Tartus and Khmemim) they do not trust incompetant arab morons to watch over them.

        • Xoli Xoli

          Because after partitioning of Syria by Trump,Erdogan, Satanyahu,and puppets.Erdogan promises shares from Turkey stream pipeline through Syria to Qatar and Turkey to Moscow. Putin is a sell out.

  • Taz T

    Because of the Russian Turkey has occupied part of Syria.

  • Rhodium 10

    As usual unprofesional movements of SAA..deploying 2 vehicles in the middle of the road!..conscripts are not guilty as they are ignorant…guilty are the bad officers and commanders of SAA…

  • gustavo

    This is happening due to the stupid Russia-Turkey agreement and the stupids ceasefire declared by SAA, and sooner or later the Russia airbasis will be effectively target by terrorists, supported by Turley (NATO member).

  • Xoli Xoli

    Did Erdogan said anything or Putin about the attack on SAA by terrorists.

  • molambo .

    Syrian army turned easy target-guinea pig!

  • RichardD

    If the Turkish observation posts are getting hit by the SAA. And Turkey is indeed providing material military support to the terrorists. Rather than being a neutral peace keeping force providing humanitarian assistance only. As I’m assuming the that DMZ agreement required. Then they need to stop providing military support to the terrorists.

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    these stupid fucking ceasefires and deals with turkey is messing everything up, STOP THE SHIT AND KILL THE RATS NOW!!!!

    These attacks are an example of the NFL strong cooperation with Turkey.
