Turkish Defense Minister Claims '309 Regime Troops' Were Neutralized In Response To Idlib Strikes

Turkish Defense Minister Sule Akar

On February 28, Turkish Defense Minister Sule Akar claimed claimed that Turkish artillery and unmanned combat aerial vehicles had hit over 200 ‘regime targets’ in the Syrian province of Idlib.

According to Akar, the strikes neutralized 309 ‘regime troops’, destroyed 5 helicopters, 23 battle tanks, 23 guns and howitzers, a BUK-M1 air defense system and a Pantsir-S1 air defense system. The defense minister said that the strikes were conducted in response to ‘agression’ by the Syrian regime in Idlib province. Last night, at least 33 Turkish troops were killed in Syrian (and supposedly Russian) strikes on positions of al-Qaeda-linked groups in eastern Idlib.

He also claimed that Russia knew in advance about the location of Turkish troops killed in Idlib. Earlier, the Russian side said that Turkish forces were shelled because they were alongside “terrorists” (Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and other al-Qaeda-linked groups). Russia also said that Turkey had provided no data about location of their troops in the area.

So, Turkey invaded Syria, deployed its own troops alongside al-Qaeda members and is now complaining that its troops were shelled. Something in this version looks wrong.

    ok ok yeah you cool you killed 170001 syrian soldiers and destroyed 801.25 armored vehicles we believe you … now calm the fu*ck down

  • Binguc

    How in the hell can they count the number of dead? They very good at it, that’s for sure, because they always provide an exact number in minutes. Stuff is blown to pieces even people who are there have a hard time finding out who is dead and who is alive, but these guys know it even if they talk about 200 locations. Wow

    • yep

      It is easy really.
      (33) dead Turk soldiers multiply by 10 always

      33 X 10 = 330 – 21 (date of Ergogan’s birthday) = 309 dead SAA

        Hahhahahahhahahahhhahahahah!!!

      • JIMI JAMES

        Wests ww2 restructured deaths = 27 million soviets.
        Just released from us (top secret archives) cccp governments officially 7 million soviets.
        Logic?since when does the more formidable victors lose more peoples than the losers?
        Did it occur in the greatest land,how many were displaced,moved or exiled?I thought not.

        • yep

          Those are not Russian – “Soviet archives” but American?!
          Since when they have “Soviet archives”?
          I would definitely take those “top secret Soviet” documents with the grain of salt.
          USA never had interest in showing importance of USSR in destruction of the 3rd Reich (and I am not communist).
          Since they claim to be one and only country who really brought Japs and Hitler down.
          “27 million” is estimate that exist for decades never contested by anyone, ever…
          20 million “exaggeration” without solid proof is bit too much for one day.
          Specially on USA gov word, the most dishonest administration on the planet.
          I don’t see point in continuing this conversation without more solid proves than American – Soviet “archives”.

          Why?
          Endless falsehood.

          Landing on the moon, 9/11, killing of JFK, RFK, MLK, Gulf of Tonkin incident, triggering attack on Pearl Harbor, Al Qaeda, ISIS, testing of radiation on their own soldiers and their black population, testing syphilis on Central-American population, Weapons of Mass Destruction – Iraq, etc, etc, etc.
          The list of those liars and world terrorists is endless !
          Of course I do not think that every US citizen is like that. Just their government and many who support them.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Its easy, they asked the White Helmets :)

  • SnowCatzor

    Do they ever tell the truth in Turkey? If anywhere near that many casualties had been inflicted, then the SAA wouldn’t be able to continue advancing – and yet it has.

    This kind of lazy propaganda is meant purely as a face-saving measure at home. No one except ignorant Turkish ultra-nationalists would believe it.

    • Ayman

      Dozen tanks and troops attacked on video:

      • Magnus Dracus

        clearly

        • SnowCatzor

          There’s nowhere 300 casualties, I’d say two dozen at most.

          • Magnus Dracus

            fake too :)

      • Peter Jennings

        Regime, LOL. Syria is a democracy, didn’t you hear?
        Erdogan debars thousands of lawyers and purges the armed forces. He shuts down social media whenever his paranoia gets the better of him. He supports terrorism abroad. So Turkey is a much better fit for a regime than Syria.

      Don’t forget the BBC and CNN :)

    This goat fucker is the Ankara Arsehole aka Sule Sullied.

  • Prince Teutonic

    They forgot to mention the fact that they also sinked one SAA submarine!

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Also captured a whole Syrian space station with aliens onboard.

    • Magnus Dracus

      correction where 2

    Oh yeah, right, sure, wow!!!

      It is just FACE SAVING as in that part of the world that is the key thing and facts be damned.

      Next week……………………..in Damascus!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • John

        lol ……..

  • CHAOS

    Isn’t it time Europe picked up the Syrians on the border ? Turkey cannot claim so many Syrians. They don’t want Syrians. Syrians also covet Turkey’s honour. Old news reports that a Syrian teenager took a photo of the girls on the beach and sent them to Syria.

    • Simplekindof Man

      If they don’t want Syrians maybe they should stop invading them.simple.

      • cactus

        they should fight alnusra with saa clean all of idlib from bearded gangsters secure the border with the saa according to adana agreement. and oper the borders to syrians to get back….but in reality they don’t want syrians back to their homes why? because it’s a political card in the hand of turkey to give them right to do everything in syria and to scare the eu, and 2- they don’t want syrians to get back so that in the next elections they can have leverage and 3- more population under government control is more power and leverage to assad government …turks and western countries are first grade snakes and they claim to be humanitarian …smh

        • Simplekindof Man

          Agreed.the problem with all these comments and in general,is that there is no distinction made between government/policies and the people.So concerning Syrian refugees the poor/common turk may not want them for their own reasons,but on the political/scumbag level it’s another story.

    • Lone Ranger

      If Erdogan wouldn’t support terrorists people could go home.
      The only reason Turkey is doing this because they want the terrorists to keep Kurds in check instead of Turkey.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Also forcibly send them to Libya to plunder more Arab oil.

  • Dick Von Dast’Ard

    The Sultanate will now be expecting Nato to condemn the attacks upon Turk forces embedded with Al Qaeda in Syria. Bizarre.

  • alejandro casalegno

    The turkish claims are like the Egyptian claims in 1967………..the fanatics believe……the soldiers die!!!

  • Florin Boar

    if they do that = no more SAA advance this days. Will see…

  • klove and light

    So, Turkey invaded Syria, deployed its own troops alongside al-Qaeda members and is now complaining that its troops were shelled. Something in this version looks wrong.

    lolololololololololol

    yeah.. Putin is a treacherous Zionist pig!!! that´s what wrong….

  • Dick Von Dast’Ard

    If Turkey does not want it’s S-400 systems, (?) then the road to Damascus is being cleared to transport them to a country that does.

  • seawolf

    First we take Aleppo …….. then we take `Damascus…. and then we take Berlin !!!

  • GuyQ

    309 where? I can also say, my strikes neutralized 1000 Turks.

  • Assad must stay

    hahahaha in their dreams

  • gustavo

    This propaganda and invented numbers are needed for Turkey people to believe that everything is OK and they are the winner who has the control of the war (invasion).

  • Peter Jennings

    There seems to be little difference between the rhetoric emanating from the Turkish admin and that of the US and nato. Erdogan learned his nato lessons well.

    The Russian admin has to tread lightly else Erdogan may close off the Bosphorus to all but nato traffic.

    • FlorianGeyer

      That would be a declaration of war with Russia, and Russia would certainly respond with all necessary means.

  • Magnus Dracus

    Erdo Wan Kenobi, has super powers!!! like laser sabres and so…>:)

    wow, this guy has really got the inside track.
    where did he get this detailed info?
    sometimes you can bury yourself in your own BS.
    fast forward.

    • FlorianGeyer

      I am told that ‘Akar’ plays World of Warcraft and that he an expert in such warfare. :)
