On February 11th, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called a security council in order to discuss further steps in Idlib, in response to the attack that killed 5 Turkish troops and injured 5 more.

In the meeting, it was decided that the attack would be responded to as many times as possible.

The meeting was attended by Vice President Fuat Oktay, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, Defense Minister Hulusi Akar, Chief of General Staff Gen. Yasar Guler, Head of National Intelligence Hakan Fidan, Communications Director Fahrettin Altun and President of Defense Industries Ismail Demir.

It was emphasized that no kind of attack can deter Turkey from its commitments in Idlib, including preventing any kind of conflict, providing border security and preventing a new wave of migration and human tragedy.

There are also images purportedly showing that Turkey is deploying even more hardware and equipment to Idlib in order to assist the “moderate opposition” in the fight against the Syrian Arab Army and the Russian troops, supporting it.

The Turkish Ministry of Defense also announces the gains by the al-Qaeda affiliated militants in Idlib, saying that the Syrian Arab Army is withdrawing from al-Nayrab, and that a helicopter had been downed.

The claims that al-Nayrab had been captured are yet to be substantiated by any evidence whatsoever.

A Syrian Arab Army Mil Mi-17 helicopter was downed over Idlib, by either militants or the Turkish troops in the region.

The Turkish defense ministry said that the Syrian Arab Army had left the northwestern town of al-Nayrab, after the helicopter was downed.

The town is located approximately 14 kilometers southeast of the city of Idlib.

In addition to the helicopter, Turkish state outlet Anadolu Agency reported that 2 SAA battle tanks were destroyed in al-Nayrab, and 1 battle tank and 1 23mm anti-aircraft gun were destroyed in the village of Afis.

Reportedly another helicopter came under fire, but was able to safely land.
