Turkish Drone Strikes Inflict Catastrophic Losses On Syrian Army (Videos)

Donate

On February 28, the Turkish Ministry of National Defense released a 14-minute video of dozens of drone strikes on Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops and equipment.

While the beginning of the video shows strikes which were carried out over the last few days, the last part includes footage of dozens of strikes which were conducted within the last 24 hours.

The Turkish strikes destroyed dozens of battle tanks, infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs), rocket launchers, howitzers, pickup-mounted machine guns and trucks.

One of the Turkish strikes also destroyed what appears to be a Pantsir-S1 air-defense system of the Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces (SyAADF). Ankara had claimed that a system of this type was destroyed along with a BUK medium-range air-defense system.

According to the Turkish Ministry of National Defense, 8 battle tanks, 4 IFVs, 5 howitzers and 2 rocket launchers of the SAA were destroyed in the last 24 hours.

The strikes were most likely carried out by Turkish-made ANKA-S and Bayraktar TB2 unmanned aerial combat vehicles (UCAVs).

The intense Turkish strikes begin after a series of Syrian airstrikes on southern Idlib which claimed the lives of 33 Turkish service members and injured dozens others.

The SAA’s catastrophic losses will likely allow Turkish-backed militants, including al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), to conduct more offensive operations in Greater Idlib.

    Only fool will wait and do nothing, while the enemy destroying country and military, including hardware. SAA over the 8 years war has learn very little about military tactics. Most f the SAA is garbage, except Tiger force and maybe the Palestine and Hezbollah group.

    destroyed and captured equipment:

    30 – Tanks

    20 – SPGs

    15 – BMPs

    7 – BM-21s

    TOTAL: 72 pieces of heavy equipment

    • Ishyrion Av

      You forgot about 1500 nuclear submarines, 223 spaceships and 27 carriers. Turks are messing the SAA very hard!

      • Ayman

        Noticed the Laser Beam on first video at 07:38 on vehicle?
        Just UAVs…..
        in a full war with Turkish Jets your numbers can be come true.
        But for incompetent SAA, armed UAVs seem sufficient enough.

        • Lavrenty Beria

          Its a worn out bungling SAA that through 8 years of chaotic resistance has managed to destroy Erdogans Muslim brotherhood dream. The Erdogan dream has now drawn him into two failed wars and destroyed his own economy. These primitive UAVs destroying 1970 era Syrian vehicles, whilst backing al Qaeda, is all that’s left of his grand plan.

        • Arch Bungle

          The thing about drones is that two can play at that game. The SAA are going to rely more on drone fleets start taking out Turkish (terrorist) forces now.

  • Ishyrion Av

    Hmm, I wouldn’t be surprised if the movies would be computer generated… I mean, I think I could come up myself with such movies, if I would waste several days (sorry, is not my field of work).

    • Ayman

      Watch 07:27

      It is shifting from Thermal to normal vision.
      Looks quite real for me!
      On 07:38 you can see the laser beam from UAVs FLIR on the vehicle.

      • Ishyrion Av

        Have you ever played H.A.W.X.? I did. Their movies are much more realistic and definitely top class quality!

        • Ayman

            just watch then russian drone attacks from 2017, amazinggly detailed video, ualmost can see turkish jihadis faces

            Russian special forces started hunting turkish troops

    • FlorianGeyer

      IF these attacks are true , its high time that the SAA troops dispersed more tactically in rear areas, tried to conceal and protect vehicles by using picks and shovels if necessary. Troops should also dig individual trenches with overhead cover if possible and munitions should be dispersed in pits if the ground is dry. That way a blast will direct the energy mostly upwards. Fuel also needs to be stored away from the vehicles and men in several dumps.

      Having neat rows is a military thing, but in combat its ridiculous.

      • yep

        Agree
        Thea also must hide and protect better their tanks and other weaponry.
        Turkey has NATO satellite surveillance support.

        SAA is in real war now against another army and not some rag tag terrorists.

        • Ayman

          You cant hide it better:

            You cant hide it better that you Turds and yours terrorist rats are losing the ground in Idlb.
            You have plenty of video and other MSM propaganda though.

        • FlorianGeyer

          To see infantry walking up farm tracks in a gaggle is also daft in a rear combat area, especially when drones etc are looking for targets.

          NCO and junior officer training seems to be lacking. Staying alive is hard work.

          • yep

            This is becoming a real war.
            So they better pull their shit together soon before it is too late.

      • Ishyrion Av

        I don’t think these movies are for real, but definitely SAA has loses. It’s a war, after all.
        If it would be for me, I would target all the Turkish columns which come and supply the invasion.
        But for real, not just warnings.

        • Rhodium 10

          if it were real…SAF would have destroyed all Turkish post!…many of them are from Afrin, others from Iraq kurdish areas and attacks near Turkish border in Hasaka vs SDF/SAA others have recorder with small drones and are artillery hits during Nayrab and Saraqib offensive…Erdogan need to save his face!

          • Ricky Miller

            Most of it is real. Turkish drones are roaming all over the area, including well behind the contact line. So far, no one is really doing anything about it. Russia had more than a year to plan this op and what, failed to anticipate that if the airspace was closed to Turkish primary aviation that they would resort to drone warfare? It’s crazy, and almost seems like the Russian government doesn’t really want to win this fight, or has some divergent definition of winning than most of us here at SF, and different from the Syrian government too. And Syrian Mig-29’s, where are they? Syria has 25-30 Mig-29’s, including 20 newer and revamped airframes gifted by Russia over the past four years. They would be ideal for flying over the region and spotting these drones on strong radar pulses, and shooting them down. Are the pilots busy, playing cards or something back at base? An entire group of SAA officers were killed and maimed yesterday at a conclave more than 10k behind the contact line. There was not a single Mig-29 available for air cover? It’s military malpractice and is getting entire groups of SAA soldiers killed.

          • Legis Legis Juscius

            dont worry tomoorow will be diferent, russia allowed non combat drones to survey deesclation zone, instead turkey sent armed drones and this attacks were unenspected, attacks are over russia implying no fly zone now

          • Jens Holm

            I dont believe Assads has 25 to 30 jets. They have had them but´several of them are used as spareparts.

            And Assads could have beenn prepared. To me its like 2 tired boxers pretending they are the biggest and best. They dont use backup like that and missiles are fine. It seemes they did shoot at least something down from the Turkish sky.

            Yopu expect too much.

            I might agree some. People debating here mainly say that Turks are weak and denied they are number 11 in the world and a big corner of their soldiers are first class and well equipped.

            People here even talk down their many F16s as they were and are second class wrecks. They are not.

            Assads never has met the Turkish armed forces for real not even in “SDFs”.

          • Ricky Miller

            Russia just gave them 20 newer model Mig-29’s in 2017. Russian aircraft are holding the Turks at bay so Mig-29’s could engage drones with minimal risk. Maybe Syria feels the need to save them for a rainy day.

          • Rhodium 10

            Man…most of that images were recorder during past Afrin and norther Syria campaing!…Turkish armed drones cannot fly over Syria…other thing is small cuadracopters….Turkey asked for permision to fly Helicopters over Idlib to pick up dead and wounded soldiers!

      • Jens Holm

        That shoul be routine every day. Take cover and keep.

        But we dont know whats next. Fx we dont know if ´Turks are “something for something” or they will reagin terrain or make a big delay in the Russia/Assad offensive.

        There are many other possibilities like hostages and retreat as well as Assads and Purin are planning for revenge.

        I also see Turks might not like coffins comming home making a retreat or support for AKP for intensice warfare. Turks are well equipped and fx coukd knock out all Russian and Assad aircrafts – but the revenge will come from Russia.

      • Arch Bungle

        The SAA seems to have doubted the Turks would get involved as directly as they currently are.
        The reality is sinking in that they cannot avoid confronting the Turks directly on Syrian land.

        • Legis Legis Juscius

          and 3 most expensive turkish drones over idlib, russian are preparing no fly zone, since turkish were allowed to thos point have drones over idlib, but unarmed ones, but as ve see they sent armed ones,btw, russian oficials said, not in public btw, putin never forget or forgive su-24 or ambasador, and high ranking russian diplomat said, if turkey try invade syria in full force, they will be anahilated, bad news for turks, experts from UK telling that turks have no chance against russain military machine, erdogan cornered himself, thats why he asking other for help and now will go to moscow quickly, because he knows that his conscript army will be devastated by russian military, tens of thousands turkish will be back in body bags, and populiation will overthrow erdogan, + kurdish insurgents should start operating soon…Imagine russians needed just one hit to kill 33 turks and wound another 40, thats amazing…JUST ONE AIRSTRIKE

      • Hishamsbr

        Isn’t that the alleged Pantsir that Isreal claimed to have hit in Syria some time ago ?

        The Turks are overextended big time. They will bleed out fighting the Libyan ,Syrian militaries and peoples.

        If NATO gets involved then it would be world war, drawing in Iran , her global allies , bringing in the full weight of Russia , China etc

        • Christian S

    • Hishamsbr

      Turkey is increasingly losing drones , troops and armor in both Syria and Libya. Turkey is walking into a monumental trap set up by Russia,Iran and Hezbollah.

      These videos are fake. The Turks wouldn’t bomb SAA troops, especially given the fact that Russian Special Force troops are embedded with the SAA. Same goes for Iranian Special forces . Even Hezbollah and various Shia militia’s from Iraq and Afghanistan. Essentially , soon we will see Turkey bleed very badly. And if the forces of NATO are supposed to interfere on Turkey ‘s behalf , NATO doesn’t have the stomach for a big war.

        Sure?..they die fighting in Aleppo many days ago vs HTS…but if a mosque die surely have been as a result of Turkish airstrike….by the way LNA in Libya has told that 4 Turkish drone have been shot down today and posted Photos!

        • Shia man

          Ya that report doesn’t make sense how they die in Aleppo when nothing is happening their

      • Arch Bungle

        In the meantime Erdogan is losing soldiers in Libya as the LNA bombs the crap out of them there. The Turks are going to get smashed on 2 fronts. Defeat is inevitable.

        At some point Turkey will go into tail spin trying to figure out which field to give up first. That will lead to a series of stupid mistakes, the result of which will be Erdogan bowing to Putin again.

    • Rhodium 10

      We have seen that Tukish drones (through Erdogan sources) are more powerful that the entire israeli air force!..but meanwhile LNA in Libya have shot down 4 Turkish drones today!

  • Rhodium 10

    Fake images!..Erdogan need to save his face after 53 soldiers dead, the lose of Aleppo and the south of Idlib…only have benn able to retake Saraqib..but for few days…

    • Al Balog

      Saraqib in 2020 is just like Battle of the Bulge in 1945. Hitler’s Nazis hid their losses and misreported them as well. Even in 1945, Hitler tried his hardest to make Germany look “strong” and “powerful” to the German public, when in fact it was losing to the Red Army in the East and the Allies in the West. Erdogan’s doing the exact same tactic of saving face and fooling people.

      • Rhodium 10

        we have seen in Libia how easy is to shot down turkish drones…only one enter and was shot down last day!…small drones and F-16 airstrikes have recorder many images of Turkish attacks in Afrin, and Kurdish areas ( also in Irak)…beside artillery and ATGM attacks vs Syrian army in terrorist offensive!…Russia have allowed that Erdogan save his face posted fake drones attacks…but in few days Saraqib and Ariha will be under hands of SAA!

            USA did anything to avoid being in WW1 and was firced to. USA did the same before WW2 and was at the Chamberlein line. In 1938 they had 400.000 soldiers and the majority was the national guard not allowed to leave the country.

            The rest was bad educated unless for looking good and show records for the olypics. They had no internal transportation mainly using busses and trains, and not even weapons for all apart from some few from WW1. They had no tanks, they have no mines, they hardly had artillery.

            USA has no vessels for troops transportation as well as for equipment and food. They hardly had any modern airplanes and even had to take in the civile Catalina in to look for subs in the atalantic ocean.

            So they added soldiers up to one million soldiers, but those were educated for Japanese fightings. Marines also today fight almost as the Japanese did.

            USA was not enemy to the Nazis. Many actually admired them for creating jobs and dicipline.

            USA before the Pearl Harbour there was no Empire at all. They had twice chosen not to be. They traded with the Nazis but also sold Britts for 27 billion dollars of equipment as well as the sold for 11 billion dollars to Russia.

            The chjange came when they were attacked in Pearl Harbour and Nazis sank even passaangerships with a lot of Americans.

            Here they took over the roles by Britts and French as well as they attcked the Italians and Japanese ones.

            So where are Your empires in that. USA was a replacement for that. Here You of course has forgotten, that USA gave USSR fornillion of dollars of help for free. They never asked a single airplaine, jeep, truck with fuel, food, clothe, nikkel and even some tanks back.

            NOT A SINGLE ONE OF THEM.

            They even would give Russis Marshall help as they did with western Europe, South Korea and Taiwan.

            So where do I see that Empire. I see it as a kind of replacer. But I see Tzars as Empire at WW1 as well as USSR all the way west of Berlin WW2. They even had to seperate Europe by a wall, so Easter Europe still could have inhabitants to plundre.

            Thats how my version is. They became the police of most of the world, but they did not choose that.

            I also remeber Stalin blaming USSR not to help USSR. Here Russsia already had the biggest armed and modern force in the whole world since 1930. Thats where the Empire was.

            We saw Stalin hoimself almost destroy millions of lives and best troops for hardly nothing. If they were kept intact USA might only need to defeat the Japanese.
            ……………………………

          • Ricky Miller

            The USA before Pearl Harbor was no Empire at all? That’s just idiotic. You do know that Pearl Harbor is in Hawaii, which was ruled by a Polynesian Queen until the 1890’s when the U.S. overthrew her, locked her up and stole her territory? The Spanish American War led the U.S. to smash Spain and establish U.S. colonies in the Philippines and Cuba. You do know about the U.S. waging war on Mexico in the mid nineteenth century and stealing by way of warfare Texas, New Mexico, California and Arizona? Did you know that when Gold was discovered in the Navajo country the U.S. Army, led by Kit Carson, rounded up all the Navajo and marched them into a concentration camp called Basque Redondo for several years, leaving dead Indian babies and mothers in their wake? Your understanding of my country’s actual history is sorely lacking, which explains why you seemingly have no understanding as to why this current era of U.S. neo-imperialism is so evil on a global scale.

          • igybundy

            Yea pretty bad for everyone to white wash their own history and narrative. Our excuse should be we did not do it and we want to make amends and not do the same evil deeds ourselves. Other wise we are no better than the evil that was done.

          • Jens Holm

            Ok, thats not completly wrong.

            The colonies already was established, when USA took them from the Spanish Empire.

            And yes, yes yes. Things were different at that time. Fx Americans of today were not even born as well as their Grandparents.

            And I do know how USA grew and before that it was divided an, so blame britts, dutch, french, spaniens and even danes. Russia also sold Alaska to USA.

            I can see it for me. Some Navajos on the moon being farmers with bow, arrow and golden teaths.

            I have a very high level of knowledge about USA.

            And dont forget to blame fx Turks for winning 1918 to 19 as well as Bolsjevick making many non revolusion fighters in USA.

            I see it here almost every day. Turks are mongols and should go home. Yesterday Erdogan is a converted greek. Kurds go back to Iran. Arabs all should live in Yemen.

            I think You should focus on today and the future and make some realistic modifications for the past.

          • igybundy

            Didnt the US christianise the heathen catholics of the philippines? killing almost a million of them in the conversion process??

          • Jens Holm

            Not really. You might study geografy about it.

            When USA demanded for indepensy after several uprises, which they had done against the Spaniols too, the facts were something like this.

            In 1/3 of the country lived about 1/2 of the population. Those were the demanders of independency and USA agreed and prepared for it. Independence year would be 1948.

            In the next third part americans and the catholic from Manilla could come and go as they wished and even have mining. But they should not even try to decide anything. Here there were some “half catholics but Gentiles”

            In the last part Philipines and americans was met with all kinds of weapons. Here people mainly was gentiles, but there also was a strong muslim minority of the very vilont way agains Christians( and even today indonesians wont have them).

            Thats the picture I was given and has been reading about. You had to integrate half of the population in culture as well as religion to be a nation.

            I only know the sekular part well. Americans prepared the Phillipines for all kinds of afministration and educated soldiers, which actually was more like well armed police. USA had 20.000 to 30.000 administratives and soldiers.

            They had a military base ´for soldiers as well as good places for the navuý as well as airplanes. It was old airplanes. Only the the hellcats were good ones in a bomber and a torpedo version. I remeber those, because they were inspiration for the german Stuka.

            And thats it for me. USA has free religion. You can get anyone You preafre and even make one Yourself. And You pay for Yourself. Religion is a private matter according tó the american constitution.

            So if many were killed and forced, as You write, it must be by private churches.

            According to wikipedia 72 million of 327 million americans are catholics. Hard to believe any would try to make those in the philipines away from that religon.

            Fx President kenedy was a carholic.

            So it must be about the rest being no Christians or something like that. Some link would be nice.

          • Jens Holm

            And the Neoliberalisme. As a Scandinavian with our systems I never has agreed in that way of doing things. Many parts of the world here partly follow parts of it.

            But many parts of the world also see its very big limitations as well as harm. Its not out. Cormers makes sense.

            But I do see Sanders as a representative for vital repairs and replacements of the its darkest corners. I do have hope for ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

            I also hope the Trump opportunisme being neoliberal and protective might be reduced and replaced.

            You hopes for Our collapse is highly overrated(I am Denmark and EU). Youi seemes to ignore we are in a high level and therefor are able to decline a lot before we reach the level of the rest of the world.

            I dont see China taking over as well. I see they make the cake to share bigger. I like that having seen devatstaing times of Chaiman Mao and before that the Chinese Empire.

            I also wellcome India making the cake bigger.

            So I am not worried as much as You try to tell me, we should be. Danes invented big windturbines, which partly solve electricity production making no pollution and almost for free.

            So far Denmark in Denmark is almost twice as much pr capita in dollars then Russia. We export advanced things and are not mainly exporters in corn and fuel. Russia do not produce a middle class for making the cake bigger or even better and are hardly dependent of the prices for a few main products.

            I cant se Syria as any economy at all. UN and others are feeding millions. They hardly produce anything. Thay cant pay for their weapons and they fight insisting to keep control insteadof trust in the dirty and corrupt Assad part. The alternative are Johadists:) .

            And none like the Kurds even they are the only ones having a kind of plan for the future. Hahaha – thats no collapse ? What is collapse???

          • Luke Hemmming

            Too true!

          • Jens Holm

            Hijack might be correct but in a sober way.

            Most of Yours are lies and as narrowminded as our smallest railroads in the mines in deep dark.

            So Yes: Is it hijjacking talking for peace. Yes it is. So if I prefare You prefaring war kill Yourself and all others prefaring that solution, that hijacking too.
            The mainproblem is You hijacking and systematicly making any other solution possible.

            And is it hijacking telling You aganda history books told by Your masters are systematic false creations made after WW1 as they wish and full of agressive lies only making enemies.

            Did You really wish that kind od freedom having many small Osmans in stead of one. Well, You defend it hard.

            Looking at Your history books comparing Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Israel and Turkey are not at the same copuntry.

            Syria= Sout America, Turkey is Greenland, Iraq is Siberia, Israel is zimbabve a.s.o..

            Is it hijaking reading facts in printing for schoolbooks and try to tell all that cant be possible at the same time. Is it.

            Shame is no word in Your vocabulary. Lies are as the Choran says You has to all the time. And the winner is the biggest liar. By that You all loose a lot.

            So dont blame me for that.

          • Ricky Miller

            Holy Fuck, that was a nightmare Jens. Please don’t tell us more about Danish small railroads in the mines of deep dark.

          • Jens Holm

            Im honered having 4 minusses for that. Thank You very much. Its a a sign for, I do something right.

            You are much like people not taking their shoes off, even in own homes.

            Don’t you consider a probability that it is the sign that you are autist? Maybe 1-2%, don’t you?

          • Jens Holm

            Not at all. I know I am a normal western which unfortunantly dont have the memory as much autistics has.

            I give You my language, spelling, knowledge level, culture and tell about what You dont understand about that.

            Right here thats very visible many are no learners. I even has told many times, that if You should defeat an enemy one of the best ways are to know the enemy.

            Not even that makes sense for Your friends. Even that makes me to spam, troll, infidel, zionist whatever.

            So I write for those which might understand why we are as we are and with no stupid filters. You make stupid filters and worse then going blindfolded a hole life.

            I dont understand. It was SO SO HARD not to understand. But my children are a great succes. They are clever exact the same way and in the tration girls of course are kept even more stupid then boys.

            To keep them low, I also feed them after the boys and men. And I am proud to say many of the die, when they get their first child.

            But many are not like You. They say hardly any can be as stuoid as him.
            But that world hardly exist in Your mind.

            You are in internal closed mens circles. You hardly see anything even You shave Your behinds.

            And what do we se and smell from those behinds – You.

          • Harry Smith

            Jens, mon ami, what language you’re giving us? Nobody understands you even those who’s first language is English. I have strong suspicions that your “knowledge level and culture” are similar to your language.

            I dont support Israel like them. They are a fact.

            And correct: I dont support things as they are and therefore try to show You other solutions.

            You are like in Islam where ts told, that If Muhammed cant go to the Mountain, the Mountain has to go to him.

            As You do none of that will never happen.

            So correct. Ido propose several other solutions and tell how they works. I ask for You at least should try to implement our good parts. And You names it as spam even it is gold for free.

            As a German i must object.. Jens is a Danish citizen.
            Though your assement holds up for Germany, at least for 30% of our people.
            Those rich people living in their confined high level suburbs, who want no borders no nation, hate the remaining 70%, and have the power in media and politics.
            But dont confuse them with us 70%. Merkels days are now soon to end, and her importing of Jihadi loving Muslims too.

            You cant. Free speacjh is not like that. I will comment any lie You come with. I will comment things with alternatives which work. Thats how things are.

            I dont read for You even I comment You. I write so people can see there are second, their, forth oppinions for solutions an not only kill and black and white.

            And how did it start: My first real job was in a very international hotel and was learned that all nations has good, bad and people in the middle as inhabitants whatever country they were comming from.

            I also was learned rich and poor mainly has exact the same worries accoeding to their family with children and like that.

            I do respect that start from I was 18 years old very much. Its confirmed here. I see the bad guys well. Most of You start with my nationality, because all danes of course are only allowed to be like me.

            And when I tell You how we do here and even prove we mainly are doing well, then You assume as a facts its because I only are promoting my own carrot below.

            Thats not my point. My point is, You dont know how we are that powerfull and even say we steal from You. The I say: Steal from You. Thats nothing. And we do pay for the oil.

            But who takes the opilmoney. Well Your corrupt regimes supported by You take the mainparts. Not even the Shiits in Iraq get theur share …

            Here Denmark is number one in NO CORRUPTION. We do have some, but we are able to keep it low. And You: Thats a lie, You are spam, You are an infidel haram western jewish zionist and probatly related to Putin being a deep state khazar himself.

            So I see no reasons to ignore You. I cannot change fanatics like You, but I hope some body else are for needed progress by vital changes in stead of Your way of treating Muhammed and Mount Arafat whatever…

        AMN News (11:10 A.M.) – “The Turkish Air Force targeted a meeting between Syrian military officers and Hezbollah personnel in the Aleppo countryside on Friday morning.
        According to a Syrian Army source, the meeting was held between the Syrian Republican Guard and Hezbollah personnel inside the town of Zerbeh, which was captured by the SAA earlier this month.
        The source said several Syrian officers were killed at the meeting, along with some Hezbollah personnel.
        No further details were released regarding the strike.
        On Thursday evening and Friday morning, the Turkish military carried out dozens of attacks against the Syrian Armed Forces, targeting their positions from western Aleppo to eastern Idlib” https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/turkish-airstrike-hits-syrian-military-hezbollah-positions-in-aleppo/?utm_medium=ppc&utm_source=push&utm_campaign=push%notificationss&utm_content=varie

      That’s what I’m saying Russia is letting turkey operate their drones over Syria.

      • Tim Williams

        Russia can’t take out the drone bases … they are in Turkey … drones are coming from the far east part of Syria … then flying at tree top level until 15 or 20 miles from Saraqib … extremely hard to pick up until they get above 1500 feet

        • rulla

          Then only the jamming seems to be effective.

            possible … all I know is Syria has brought in short range air defenses and they have engaged 2 targets in the last 90 minutes .. what engaged them … I do not know

        • FlorianGeyer

          IF the Yanks were being attacked by drones from a neighbouring country, they would bomb the airbases. It would be legal as well.

        I just can’t understand what’s Russia is planning next, let’s say for the next two to three days… immediate Russian political or at least strong military indirect intervention is urgently needed

  • Angry Guy

    I have been observing this war for years now and I cannot remain
    silent any more. The anger inside me is boiling when I see what is
    happening in these last days in Syria. What I see is a final and crystal
    clear picture of what kind of a man Putin really is. As I am writing
    this Turkey is attacking Syrian soldiers en masse without any reaction
    from the Russian side, because Putin wont allow it! They are using
    combat drones in closed?!! syrian airspace freely – no air defense is
    firing, no russian fighters are intercepting, the poor soldiers are
    getting slaughtered, long range missiles are coming from Turkey and
    S300/400 is
    silent!!!! Where is the ballistic defense, where is air cover what the fuck is happening?

    This
    open turkish aggression is happening for more than 2 weeks now and no
    fucking response from the weak and pathetic Putin Zio pig! I am sorry,
    even if he helped save Syria from destruction before this permissive
    behavior toward Turkey terrorist regime now and no military response
    speaks volumes of his
    cowardliness and disgusting backstabbing to the ally in dire need!!!

    AT LEAST ATTACK THE TURKISH ARTY FIRING INSIDE SYRIA AT SYRIAN POSITIONS
    ALREADY
    AND SHOT DOWN THE FUCKING DRONES YOU PEACE OF SHIT!!!! DEFEND YOUR ALLY
    OR GET THE FUCK OUT – AT LEAST THE SYRIAN ARMY CAN THEN RESPOND BACK
    AND
    DESTROY TURKISH OPs FOR STARTERS UNLIKE NOW WHERE THEY ARE FORBIDDEN BECAUSE
    PUTIN TIES THEIR HANDS!

    Imagine
    the morale of Syrian troops where they are openly attacked by Turkeybut
    there is no response from Russia, not even a close air support (bombing
    from 8kms with dumb bombs is not CAS but just plain dumb and
    inefficient and with no regards to civilian life)

    Where are the
    ka-50/52 helicopters with antitank missiles and cannons which would have
    a field day with attacking terrorists? Where are the Su-25 CAS
    missions? (dont give me a MANPADS excuse) What has happened with ATGM
    missile jammers which we have been seeing on some Syrian tanks years
    back and were advertised to defeat incoming missiles? No tanks are
    equipped with it anymore?

    How many more syrians have to die
    because of Putin soft policy toward Turkey? When will Russia start
    bringing fighters, SAMs and other equipment to confront the turkish
    terrorist aggressor?! Because now they are hopelessly outnumbered. I am
    getting sick of this shit. Such cowardice, such low regard to human life
    for an ally is something that is deeply disturbing, he is willingly
    letting them die! If that is the case Russia should get the fuck out and
    let Erdogan have Idlib and his terrorist budies since Syria cannot
    defend themself. Be honest and tell them you wont defend them, not
    letting them into a meat
    grinder!

    Putin is morally bankrupt and
    is destroying reputation of the russian army. I once had Putin in high
    regard but now I see what he really is – a weak, pathetic, disgusting
    thug who just so happens to be good friend with Netanyahu and saudi King
    and wants to be a friend of Erdogan too, the guy who wassupporting ISIS
    before.

    LOOK AT THIS AND TELL ME IF THIS IS NORMAL WHEN ERDOGAN IS KILLING SYRIAN
    TROOPS EN MASSE!

    https://tass.com/politics/1

    I
    am sickened by this traitorous bastard which supposed to be an ally of
    Syria but he is cosying up to the war criminal Erdogan. Russian army
    under Putin is like a Lion from The Chronicles of Narnia. Bound and
    neutralized. I hope they remove him and put in place some true Russian
    nationalist.

      God, how many times do I have to repeat it to people? My comments made about it are everywhere here on SouthFront. LiveUaMap is a Western propaganda site. They’ve BADLY mishandled reports of the Donbass war, and keep saying that Syria is “bombing civilians”. They make the Ukrop Nazis look like the “good guys”, when in fact they are committing genocide against the Donbass people. Just like how the Western media portrays Kosovo in 1998-1999.

    All this while the terrorists are back to posting propaganda vids of them abusing recent SAA captives:

    https://twitter.com/NotWoofers/status/1233478232147664896

    So while I agree that we shouldnt get carried away by Turkish drone strike compilation propaganda vids, it seems to me clear beyond reasonable doubt that while Turkey is escalalting the conflict substantially, a shift in ROE has occurred to the massive detriment of SAA+allies, for which I have not found a reasonable explanation.

    Hey SF, why post Turkish BS with all these fake videos of supposed Turkish drones striking Syrian positions when Russia has a no fly zone over Idlib, that’s very capable of enforcing it?
    A lot of people seem to have itchy ears for Erdo’s lying propaganda.

    • Red Pilled ThoughtCrimes

      the drones could have been in Turkish airspace

    • Al Balog

      I’ve noticed that too. Too many people take SouthFront’s word as if it were Gospel. This indirectly leads people into believing Türkışh Pröpağanda.

    • Ricky Miller

      I hate it, but the probable reason that SF is covering it is because it’s true. Our ire should be directed at the Russian government. Pantsirs are being destroyed in Syria because they were not in place properly before the Turkish push back began, and not in place in density enough to provide acceptable coverage margins from multiple attack angles. These systems are not area defense weapons, they are designed to protect a specific location and/or equipment. Because of Syria’s situation and attrition the Pantsir systems have been drafted into area wide air defense. It’s not going to work. They’ll claim some drones and shoot down some missiles but without a better integrated air defense and more TEL’s and especially multiple spread out radar vehicles they’ll continue to be destroyed. Air supremacy was Russia’s job in this fight and although mainline Turkish aviation is kept out the failure to prepare for widespread drone assaults has been costly for the SAA. What was needed, clearly, was better radar coverage and TorM2’s. Failing that, a proper aircraft umbrella.
      BTW, It’s not just SF. It’s multiple sources reporting just devastating SAA losses. Most of these losses are from drone and guided artillery strikes. There are multiple images from Saraqib and the surrounding towns of jihadi street gangs celebrating inside the city(s) near recognizable buildings, and even a sequence of them laughing while stomping on the Russian flag.

      • Jesus

        My question was how do drones fly in a no fly zone? Have Russian integrated air defenses not seen them?
        The Pantsir has its own radar to track targets, a slow moving drone should give it plenty of time to lock the target. Integrated air defenses uses Pantsir in conjunction with other weapons.

  • Red Pilled ThoughtCrimes

    amazing how people are blaming Russia because russia really does not need a war with NATO. SAA will be victorious, there was always going to be a lot of losses in liberating idlib. the terrorist cunts have held it for yrs, all terrorists got shipped there.

    People are asking why Russia doesnt shoot down turkish drones?

    because with NATO, you attack one you attack them all

    • Angry Guy

      You are stupid.

    • Shia man

      That’s not true nato gave Erdogan the finger they said they won’t join him Putin is letting him have his strikes to save face the SAA is not allowed to strike the drones

      • Red Pilled ThoughtCrimes

        SAA took down a drone the other day. they need more SAM’s in the area.

    • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

      nah…not exactly like that.
      NATO gets involved only when a member is attacked on its own ground.
      Turkish aggression and occupation of another country, NATO only talks. It does not act. It will Not act.

      • Al Balog

        Agreed. But still, a direct war between Russia and Turkey would be very bad, and the Western powers would use it as a phony excuse against Russia. This could make things even more complicated to an already-complicated situation. Just like with Crimea.

        • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

          The west can NOT face Russia and they know it. And they don’t want to face Russia.
          The west wants to do business with Russia. Especially the E.U.

      • Red Pilled ThoughtCrimes

        NATO still wants regime change in Syria. They will back Turkey.

        • Tim Williams

          • Red Pilled ThoughtCrimes

            USA has 50k terrorist fighters under the SDF brand within syrian territory still. NATO will happily give the green light to them to attack syria. countries will not go to war, their proxies will.

      So Syrians should just surrender because…Turkey can match all the way to Damascus tomorrow and there is nothing SAA and Russia can do because “IF MOSCOW LAYS ONE FINGER ON ANKARA…NATO GONNA WRECK THIS MOFO” 9 Years of SAA wasted for nothing. They should have just let ISIS roll over all the gains because Russia is a pussy(Excuse my French)

    FUCK YOU PUTIN LOVERS u BUNCH of Zionist COCK SUCKERS:

    iam pissed at you Putin cock suckers HERE.. I wish you would be tortured by them FRIENDS OF PUTIN.

    IT WAS PUTIN that gave the green light for Turkey to invade and occupy AFRIN.
    iT WAS Putin who gaver the green light for Turkey to invade and occupy Idlib.
    It was PUTIN that mad the Agreement with Turkey to invade and occupy North east syria latest.

    its funny how nobody is considering that Russia just might not be ready to counter every little thing the turks throws at the Syrians instantaneously.
    its not a game this, this is real war.

    • Shia man

      Why let them operate their drones in Syrian sky’s

      • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

        Maybe they don’t ”let them” , maybe they can’t shoot them down.

        • Shia man

          they can’t or they aren’t allowed

          • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

            There could be a whole lot of reasons pal.
            Maybe the Russians want the west to see that the Turks are killing innocent people too, that the Turks are not that helpless as Erdogan is trying to present them in NATO and in Europe…
            And how about maybe the Russians want to see what the Turks are capable of and what they aren’t and then a counter attack accordingly is coming…

          • Shia man

            That’s cute story why is Russia patrolling with the turks in north Syria its a game putin doesn’t want to lose turkey

          • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

            Are they still patrolling together ? I don’t think so.

          • Shia man

            Are you sure about that Russia and Turkey carry out joint patrols in Syria’s Hasakah province this report was yesterday

          • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

            You know that Russia is NOT at war with Turkey right ?
            Not yet anyway.
            Russia is helping Syria with airstrikes. And with whatever else they can do. Or want to do if you prefer.
            If Turkey (not turkish proxies) makes another tragic mistake and hits Russian assets and / or people and Putin does nothing then I ll agree with you.

          • Shia man

            Did Putin do anything when turkey shot down the Russian jet did he do anything when Israel used a Russian plane for coverage which ending up killing all on board of the Russia plane by Syria air defense he promised to sell Syria the S-300 but master Israel said no

          • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

            Let me answer with this little video.

            In this episode Stewie (The baby) pisses off Brian (the dog) and then he is afraid of Brian’s revenge, so keeps on asking Brian to hit him back with like a slap on the face and he even punches him self in the face…but Brian doesn’t respond …he lets Stewie almost forget about it…and then right at the end of the episode this happens :

            https://youtu.be/5iaPrUAdveY?t=4

          • Al Balog

            That was a few days ago (about 4 or 5), before this massive Turkish shit happened.

          • Vitex

            Keep your friends close and your enemies closer

          • Al Balog

            That’s exactly what Putin did with the Norman Format in December 2019. He didn’t make an offense on Ukraine to show that Zelensky and his posse don’t live up to their part of the deal in ending the Donbass War. The Kosovo-style war crimes by Ukrop Nazis continued, and no ceasefire or withdrawal occurred. Ever since, Germany and France have been gradually moving away from (and getting annoyed by) Ukraine. Ukraine has never been weaker without such support from Germany and France. The country is really on the verge of collapsing like the USSR, and it’s economy is doing far worse than North Sudan.

    • Al Balog

      Agreed. People try to treat war as it is some sort of online argument. And your idea about the West wanting to do business with Russia is also accurate. The automotive business between the EU and Russia has been strengthening strongly in recent years, even with all the “sanctions” drama:

      It looks like it’s real but have heart Russia has deployed two warships off the coast so expect some heavy weapons to start flying into idlib

    • Christian S

      In vid u can clearly see artillery units of tigers bein hit, somethn needs to be done to take down or jamm those drones and control the no fly zone. Russia has to act. They have been investing a lot it is not an option to loose any tiger force unit this way as their fightin experience makes the difference on the battlefield. No fly zone should be implemented hard way for erdogans forces or else SAA will be wiped out in idlib from the air

    Fear of retaliation does not justify betrayal nor suicide at the hands of your supposed enemy, the Turks.

      Syria is going to be taken down and Damascus will be in rubble as the bible says. The international zionist-masonic bastards will be successful.

      “The burden of Damascus.
      Behold,
      Damascus is taken away
      from being a city,
      and it shall be
      a ruinous heap”
      (Isaiah 17:1)

      This prophecy has never yet been fulfilled.

      Putin was also called King of Jews by the Chabad Lubavitch, a title only reserved to real jews, not goys. The Syrian war is just a plan of the Zionist plan to destabilize the Middle East and create more “terrorists”. Russia was given the “good guys” part.

      Quality of life in Russia is terrible! Russia is a mafia state, its corrupted as fuck! Putin was head of the KGB, a criminal organization. His mother is Jewish. And just like the crime syndicate in the US lead by Jews, so is the one in Russia. Why would their be a Talmud on the table while Putin is having a press conference with two high up Rabbis? Nothing is by accident. It is to show the Jews are in control in Russia. They never left! They never gave up power! Russia hasn’t been ruled by a true Russian since Czar Nikolas.

      The suicide rate of men in Russia is number one in the world. life expectancy of men is as low as countries in Africa. Many Russian women end up being hookers all over the world. What about those rich evil russian-jew oligarchs with their super yachts, nobody talks to them about climate change lol while many Russians struggle to buy a loaf of bread.

      Communism has broken them mentally and spiritually.

      Putin said 33 words during his 2017 presidential inauguration underneath the eye of providence. He serves the zio-masonic cabal. Syria will go down.

      The ISIS flag says “ALL JEW 2050”

    • Ricky Miller

      Yeah, it’s terrible. I’m in distress about it. I understand why Russian military personnel are disgusted with their own government. A couple of weeks ago a unit was ordered to stand down while operating in the Kurdish areas, after a Turkish officer fired shots above the heads of Russian personnel. The Russian patrol promptly returned to base and took down the Russian flag. In the bombing incident, Russia let Syria take the blame for a deadly strike that Russia executed, and then watched from the sidelines all night while Turkish drones both guided artillery strikes and struck SAA positions themselves in retaliation. That’s this war in a nutshell, Russia saying how important this fight is but refusing to actually throw it’s weight into it like it matters.

      • Jake321

        They can’t afford a war, especially with oil prices tanking.

            Shake it off. You’re clearly on the right side of history. Some people here at SF, including many I respect greatly, view any critical comment as trollish. It’s a side effect of so many trolls coming here and throwing out crap in an effort to drive us all away; it’s a propaganda war front. It’s hard sometimes to sort out the legitimate reality based criticism from the Imperial trolls. He has you confused but I don’t.

          • Neurasth

            You’re right, but he probably suspected I was a turkish troll. To his defense there are MANY lately, its becoming hard to read the comments. So its legitimate to suspect I could have been one. No hard feelings.

          • Ricky Miller

            Yes, there sure are. Beware, many are paid to be here and I have little doubt that some have stripes on their sleeves. They are disciplined and show it by never arguing with a troll. It’s information narrative warfare, as if commentators on SF are key to deciding the fate of Kings, so to speak. The true goals are to make the boards so toxic that many of us go away and SF funding dries up. SF conspires with them to make it happen by declining to weed the comments or paywall the message board.

          • Neurasth

            I agree, but I’m not sure about SF conspiring. It would be complicated to filter out who is actually a troll or not. Plus, they would need to hire a moderator of some sort, which requires funding, and lets be honest SF is a small project, not an actual corporation.

            I’ve resorted to blocking the turks. Makes using this website way less frustrating. It will take a while since they are literally legion, but i recommend it.

        • Ricky Miller

          I know. All is not lost, not by a long shot but Turkey seems to want it more. Russia’s support is limited mostly to airstrikes and showing the flag, but Turkey is intent on turning northern Syria into a second Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. For them it’s been a land grab, plain and simple. Erdogan admitted as much a few days ago when he said that Aleppo is in Turkey’s heart and that in Idlib Turkey is the host, meaning it’s a part of Turkey’s house. Turkey’s plan to grab Aleppo has so far been thwarted but clearly the Turkish idea is that Syria will splinter and Aleppo will be there for the taking, Turkey just has to be resolute and ready. A century after 1922 and this ancient place in Turkey’s heart, which was Ottoman for four centuries will be back home.

    How to lose a war in five easy steps, even if you’re a superpower: First, deploy to a country that has a long history of relations with you in order to help them fend off regime change, mostly regime change by way of terrorism. But, don’t declare an alliance with this small country under siege, but signal broadly to every other big player that they’re free to walk all over this smallish state, even while you are deployed there. Next, try to do it on the cheap. Keep your air contingent small, don’t even deploy a single armoured company. Just provide a minimal of help for years and years, like a festering wound. I mean a single year of decisive action would have probably been less costly but if you did that other countries who conspired to destroy this smallish state might paint you into the bad guy in MSM, and you wouldn’t want your reputation tarnished. After that, be sure to try and chase two hares at once, all while catching none. Or, in Russia’s specific case related to Syria, it’s more like she’s tried to catch seven hares, all at the same time. First, Russia is trying to stop regime change. Jury’s still out. But, in stopping regime change Russia doesn’t want to offend anyone. Russia wants to support Israel and Syria, all at the same time. Also, eliminate the terrorists, especially those who are Russian Federation citizens. But, the main long term sponsor of those terrorists is willing to buy Russian products in large deals so try and woo them at the same time they work against all your other Syrian goals. That’s a lot of rabbits to chase. Step four, fail to escalate your firepower to match the level of investments being made in the terrorists ability to kill. I mean seriously, Turkey spent two weeks shipping in massive amounts of equipment and proxy soldiers yet the Russian Air wing in Syria was reinforced by…two planes. Last, refuse to admit publically who your enemy really is. Pretend like Turkey is a reasonable long term friend and client, even while they actively try to shoot down your planes and give weapons to jihadis who not only want to bash the Syrians back into submission but would love to export themselves and their weapons back home to the Volgograd subway. Awesome. But hey, give Turkey every expectation that deals regarding gas supply and transit, atomic reactors, tourism and agriculture are rock solid no matter how many jihadis they arm or how many Syrians and Russians they help kill or injure.

        I think the US DoD attitude Can be summed up in a February 25, 2020 report to the US Senate Armed Services Committee. The report can be found here:

        Turkey is discussed on page 7. Note the US military will not comment on wisdom of policy choices but between the lines it is clear Turkey is critical to counter Russia in ME in the view of the US DoD.

          In fact Germany has been and still is Turkey’s best friend in Europe (that is not turkish like Albanians Bosnians and kosovars).

          If you think about it its Greek’s taxpayers money that Germany is been giving away to Erdogan …and what is the result ? Erdogan sends illegal immigrants to Europe anyway…

      • Ricky Miller

        But have they really? I had more confidence in that premise fifteen months ago before the cynicism of Turkey’s dealings by way of the Astana agreements was exposed. They willfully declined to meet their obligations while at the same time proceeded to declare that they had. It was like an alternate reality. They then proceeded to violate the weapons ban to Libya, violated the Law of the Sea agreement by drilling, brazenly, in Cypriot waters and then unleashed Turkish gangs in Northern Syria, even at one point dragging a Kurdish woman from her vehicle and executing her on the roadside. How cynical do you have to be to declare that you informed the officers of another country about your forces movements with terrorist formations when you really didn’t, and couldn’t name the contact you spoke to but then based a violent retaliation on the already disproven lie? That’s cynical. I don’t think Russia has any prize here, any Turkish neighbor. Not one they could trust with any confidence. Certainly not one worth failing Syria over.

        • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

          Every normal state (just like in the case of individual people in their relations) wants to have a good state of affairs with their neighbours, and Turkey IS Russia’s neighbour.
          Can’t blame them from trying to have good relations.
          And of course there are common financial interests and projects…

          And it’s not that Russia hasn’t tried to be friends with Greece either but Greece is a NATO puppet I am sad to say …maybe you know Russia tried to sell the S400 to Greece before they went to Turkey, and we know already Greece acquired the S300 that was meant to stay in Cyprus …

          So …things just might be a little bit more complicated than most of the average spectators of these events thinks …

    • S Melanson

      Unfortunately your words would apply just as well if said a month ago, three months ago, six months ago, a year ago and so on. Some of those rabbits are just an illusion being chased with faint hope of success and mostly stir up trouble that was all to predictable. Is there something we are missing here… ?

      • Ricky Miller

        I ask that every day. What am I missing here? Russia’s strategy seems to make little sense to me, but I’m not Russian. Just using my imagination though, there is no way as a leader of Russia that I deploy forces to a country on the premise that it’s important enough to risk their lives for but not nearly vital enough to do right. I just don’t understand it. I support Russia’s foreign policy, I know they mean well and seem to respect most other countries and their rights under the UN Charter but this Syria operation seems to make little sense to me. It’s almost bi-polar.

    • Lone Ranger

      Time to insert your Tampax…

  • RichardD

    If Turkish drones are carrying out these strikes without being taken down that’s obviously a problem. The next question is why? Either the Russian anti aircraft equipment doesn’t work. Or the SADF isn’t receiving adequate support for it to be used to it’s full design capability.

    At this stage the videos need to be vetted for authenticity to determine if the Turkish claims are true or not.

    • Lone Ranger

      Or maybe, Turks are lying as usual…

      • Jens Holm

      • RichardD

        Yes, they are terror supporters with a well deserved credibility deficit.

    • Jens Holm

      Most of Your kind is like that. You deny number one and in the most naive way dont know Your enemies.

      You are told, Yore so stronk. And then so many times get so surpriced.

      Turks are number 11 in military strength. They do have many godd smaller missiles. F16s are many. F16 are not junk. They have strong artillery and the best are armed Firtinas. They fo have tanks and many. The tanks are upgraded Israelien ones as well as Leopards. Some of them are not latest models, but they do have many of them.

      Turks do have good troops. Their army is 600.000 but I will estimate up to 100.000 are fit for fight. They might have heavy losses the first days. They are not veterans but relative well educated.

      And true: We do not know whats false and true accoding to medias. And we dont know what happens now and next as well.

      But You should not be surprices at all that Turks can penetrate Assads and Putins as knives through butter.

  • Arch Bungle

    The Turkey supported Jihadis threw everything they had against Saraqib where the M4 and M5 highways join. This enabled the Syrian army to take some 40 towns and cities at the southern front. The whole Ghab plain is now in liberated and the frontline has been massively shortened.
    Saraqib fell to the Jihadis but they paid a very bloody price for it as the Syrian and Russian airforce continued to intensively bomb the approaches to the city. A new defensive line has now been established around Saraqib and the Syrian army is preparing to recover it.

    • Jens Holm

      And how many hip hips do You expect …

        The loss of South Idlib is a huge loss for the Turks, they are in panic mode now, Idlib is on its last legs as is the entire Globalist project in Syria.

  • RichardD

    Other than retaking a small section of the M5, while they lost a big chunk of southern Idlib. What’s this claimed Turk air superiority accomplished? Not much.

    The same thing happened after the M20 to Dier Ezzor was cleared. A small section was closed by terrorists who were then pushed back out.

    • Neurasth

      They apparently killed several high ranking Republican Guard officers. https://twitter.com/SyriaGeneral

      I dont like it, but I believe the losses have been pretty severe.
      Lets see what happens tomorrow. Im worried Turkey might actually declare war and invade Aleppo.

      • RichardD

        I’ve seen those reports. If the Turk reports are true. And I wouldn’t jump to that conclusion without further evidence. The bottom line is does the Russian equipment work or not. Either way it looks bad for Russia. If it doesn’t work it changes the equation. If it does work and the Russians aren’t allowing it to be used to it’s full capacity. It’s a political issue that looks bad for Russia betraying an ally.

        • Neurasth

          You’re talking about the Pantsir. In my opinion it was either human error, or the Turkish Israeli drones have the technology to remain unseen by them. Which is a frightening thought if right.

          It seems like they have been firing tonight, so in more likelihood they are working

          • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

            Turkish drones fall like flies. They have been falling like flies both in Syria and in Libya alike.
            Are Israeli drones any better and were they there in that incident ?
            I don’t know, do you ?

          • Neurasth

            Apparently the turkish drones have joint technology shared by the zionists. So parts of it are actually israeli. The whole assemblage is probably different from the drones that the zios are using, however.

            If you had doubts that Turkey is in bed with the kikes, well its clear as day now.

          • Kell

            Yes a lot of the latest israeli stuff is being revealed here, the Syrians, Iranians and Russians should find it all very useful!

          • Ricky Miller

            They have a very limited range and Syria doesn’t have enough of them. They have been spread out to cover more ground and units are out there in terrain operating alone! It’s not the way they are designed or meant to be used. Pantsir systems are for defending fixed positions, like a building or a longer ranged air defense system. Syria is trying to use them for area defense and are surprised by stand alone units being destroyed by drones that are small enough to avoid detection until the last few kilometers. Russia has no problem destroying those drones, but Russia’s pantsirs are the modernized models and are operating as units with mutual fire support. They’ll destroy a fair number of drones but while doing so other drones might be targeting them and with no second or third unit, and operating in mixed terrain, they’ll continue to be vulnerable.

          • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

            Fair enough but imo Russia should do more to protect the most important Syrian weapons out there.

          • Ricky Miller

            Yes. That was the Russian role here.

          • RichardD

            The SADF has 1,000+ AAA systems of various ranges that blanket western Syria. The Russian satcom system is watching Idlib closely.

            I’m waiting for further evidence to form an opinion. Right now I’m not convinced of the story’s veracity.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Russia will have to airlift a layered AD and move them it north. They can nominally be under Syrian command but Russia has every right to defend its invited forces in Syria.

    • Ricky Miller

      I don’t think they have the right to use them, not independently. And these drones are small, at least in the aviation world. The right weapon would be a middle ground area defense system like TORm2 or s-350. But Syria is unlikely to see either of those systems so the fallback position would be to put and keep aircraft above the battle space and use active radar at random times to find and target these drones. For some reason that is not being done.

      • World_Eye

        But look Syrian Army haven’t lost so much in 2 days from the Turks with drones from the whole year.

        • Ricky Miller

          Turkey is pushing the envelope. She’s not willing so far to challenge Russian aircraft or air defenses with F-16’s but if Turkey uses drones to the widespread effect and carnage as demonstrated over the past 48 hours what difference will it make? The SAA will have to give ground either on the battlefield or at the table under the reality that the drone damages are nearly every bit as bad as aerial intervention by Turkish F-16’s. Make no mistake, the Saraqib losses are in large measure due to Turkish drones and Turkish artillery, being aided by drones. If Turkey repeats this moving forward expect similiar battlefield results without a paradigm shift in Russia’s thinking about the conflict.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Also Turkeys special forces if you pay attention to the videos, the terrorists are speaking Turkish, not Arabic as they are regular Turkeys military.

          • Ricky Miller

            Yep. It’s clear that Turkish regular forces and the jihadi gangs of all stripes are now enjoying unified command, and widespread distribution of uniforms, other kit, weapons and fire support. They are in effect, one army, at least for the moment.

            I never believed that Turkey would full on soil itself for all time by placing regular military personnel wearing the Turkish flag alongside jihadi thugs without loyalty to country or morality. I knew that Turkey was arming and supporting them to use as a proxy tool for their land grab but the idea of Ataturk’s Army directly operating with and giving uniforms to these types is a badge of shame that the Turkish Army will have a hard time freeing itself from, for a long time.

            No, what I’m saying is that the SAA has lost about as many men in 48 hours as she had from the start of the offensive last fall. It’s not sustainable. I’m not saying that because I want to hurt someone’s feelings or because I don’t support Syria’s actions and Russia’s support for those actions, because I side with them in this fight. I’m saying it because it’s a military fact, and if it remains unchanged it will lead to considerable battlefield reverses for the Syrian government. That’s sad, outrageous, frustrating, but nearly inevitable.

          • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

            Well as I said earlier, this is war.
            And matter a fact up till now we had a ”hide and seek” type of war, now shit got real.
            At the end of the day though Syrians support Assad 90(+) % (those still in Syria anyhow) and if soldiers die then they die for the country for the homeland for their houses for their families.
            When Turks die though …that’s a different story… they, the Turks ARE the aggressor they have no business being in Syria…and their deaths, every single new body going back to Turkey in a coffin is a nail in ERDOGAN’S coffin !

          • World_Eye

            But did you saw the drone hitting the Pantsir S-1, how in God’s name that Pantsir didn’t shoot the damn drone well there is 2 possible reasons:
            1. Pantsir S-1 was not on Automated self defense
            2. Pantsir was working but no one inside in it, to shoot down the drones, highly likely Syria air-defense persons that should seat inside of it and control what is on radar, they were not, probably outside of it smoking cigarettes etc., = low morale of Syrian Air-Defense at that time, like they don’t expect anything, usually they only countering ISRAHELLI missiles.
            The drone was literally above the very Pantsir itself maybe 1-2 km high.

    • PZIVJ
      • Zionism = EVIL

        Actually, a layered defence is the answer, it should include S-350-300-400, BUK, Tor2 and Pantsirs along with AAA like radar guided Shikla 23mm quads. The SAA infantry units should have adequate manpads.

  • World_Eye

    And after so much dead SAA, the SAA allows the Turkish post to be in their land, drops some heavy bombs on every possible Turkish Post, they are killing you, you are in war with them, what are you waiting for SAA.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The OPs should be given an hour to surrender and they don’t then flatten them.

      • George King

        Green buses to Turkey, no weapons personal or other wise. Let Erdogan bomb his own when they try to return. Best case scenario to hasten his acelleration into his delusional madness.

  • RichardD

    If the Turks have this kind of air superiority, why are they losing 10 times as much territory as they’re regaining?

    • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

      You can hardly call this air superiority though…
      Just a drone manged to escape detection…
      But you need boots on the ground that know how to fight and are fighting for a just cause.
      And that is missing from the Turkish army.
      Also half the Turkish army is in jail because they said something bad about sultan Erdogan…
      Even the ones at the front don’t want to be there…

      • Zionism = EVIL

        You know there are more Turkey officers in jail than after the Iranian revolution. Over 1300 and mostly airforce officers and staff level. I am sure there are still cells in the military who can organize a coup.

        • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

          What do you think Erdogan wants the S400 for ? To protect his house from another Turkish raid !

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Those helicopter gunship pilots should have strafed his house and corrupt family of pimps who sell stolen Syrian oil for their ISIS pals, then the shithouse parliament. The Turkeys are not that bright.

      • RichardD

        The Turkish army is very capable. But the Turks are making a pariah out of themselves with the Idlib fiasco.

  • igybundy

    Well Syria is fully within its right now to bitch smack the invaders.. Who are even touting that they are directly helping terrorists and attacking Syrian soldiers. Although we knew for long time, it was not published we know the turks killed anyone reporting their connivance in the destruction of Syria.. Syria should just issue notice that in 24 hours all turkish observation posts will be reduced to build homes for the displaced…

    • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

      Syria should just destroy them posts without no warnings. Those posts should had been destroyed at least 2-3 days ago, if not earlier.

      • Kell

        They are useful hostages.

  • RichardD

    The Turks suffer from the boy who cried wolf syndrome. They’ve made these types of claims on a regular basis. As they’ve steadily lost territory.

    If they can inflict these types of catastrophic losses. Then why are their terrorists losing so rapidly?

  • Chrkomninos

    That’s exactly what they did in Cyprus. They pretended “it was not much of an invasion” until it was too late for the Greek-Cypriots.

    Destroy them all before it’s too late. In a couple of days it will be too late. It is already very late. They will never stop, unless they will be stopped.

  • Pave Way IV

    “According to the Turkish Ministry of National Defense, 8 battle tanks, 4 IFVs, 5 howitzers and 2 rocket launchers of the SAA were destroyed in the last 24 hours.”

    Um… that’s like a slow day for the RuAF and SyAF. Let’s see if Turkey can keep this up for any length of time. Meanwhile, the SAA keeps liberating more land and airstrikes keep blowing up more head-choppers, Turks and their junky armor.

    Propaganda, Turkeys drones flying free in Idlib??

  • don

    Lets have a technical discussion on radar drone detection, radar avoidance, radar jamming and anti drone weapons. Lets also talk about what the known militarily deployed hardware that is out there and speculate on any new systems that have been developed but not declared. Specifics on Turkey of course are relevant.

    I’m also interested in communication and control between the command center/drone operator and the drone itself. What are the protocols being used? What is the encryption, if any that is being used. Are the command and control centers susceptible to DDOS attacks? Maybe the public can help source some digital blows against the Turkish terrorists.

  • Lazy Gamer

    All right, lets turn this into an opportunity. The only thing saving these observation posts is the deescalation and safe zone agreement. Syria should publicize the civilian casualties from rocket/missile attacks at Aleppo and other cities, some Russian casualties. Syria should make issue with Turkish convoys directly attacking cities. Syria and Russia has everything they need to leave the agreement. These posts should be given 24 hours to pack up and leave. But the question is, does Russia want to leave the agreement now? Also Russia better check how Turkey obtains the coordinates for the whereabouts of Syria’s officers.

    • Squeeth

      Good point but it’s the Sultana’s brinkmanship which has led to this, the Allies need to retaliate but not by so much that the 4th Reich uses it as a pretext.

    Russia never presented footage with so precise strikes, 2/3 Russian bombs land few meters near the target, but they are powerful bombs. However Turkey use high precision American missiles and look like they are better at drone games than Russia.

    I see Russian supporters on SF as being overemotional and underestimating their enemy. If this is how Russia is, then they have already lost the war. For those stupid turds who said Turkey is over extending itself. Turkey chose the right time to deal a blow to Russia and Assad. They waited till they got arrogant. As far as I can see Russia has opened many fronts and caught in a bait. They invaded Syria in 2015 and now they want to do the same in Libya. If you think 30 Turkish martyrs is harming Turkey think again. Turkey has some real men waiting to pounce on Assad. Muslims will invade Russia if they don’t stand down. Now now or close. But in the future. Be ready.

        “you lost the war”. If Russia military planners have come to that conclusion they wouldn’t be attacking innocent weak civilians and bombing hospitals. Muslims don’t lose. As far as I know you don’t under the dynamics of war if you have already declared victory.

    Turkish military carries out massive attack against Syrian Army
    By News Desk –

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:25 P.M.) – The Turkish military carried out a massive attack against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) last night, as their drones and ground forces launched several strikes on the government’s positions in the Latakia, Hama, Aleppo, and Idlib governorates.

    According to a military source in the Aleppo Governorate, the Turkish military heavily targeted their armored and technical vehicles, causing significant destruction to their northwestern Syria arsenal.
    In addition to attacks on the Syrian Army’s vehicles, Turkish military also targeted the government’s installations, inflicting heavy damage to these sites.
    The attacks by the Turkish military were said to have been carried out in retaliation for the airstrike that killed dozens of Turkish soldiers in the southern countryside of the Idlib Governorate on Thursday.
    Following the airstrike, which the Turkish regime accused the Syrian military of carrying out, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his command staff entered into a six-hour-long meeting, in which it is believed that they planned and watched the attack against the SAA in northwestern Syria.

Where is the ballistic defense, where is air cover what the fuck is happening?

    This open turkish aggression is happening for more than 2 weeks now and no fucking response from the weak and pathetic Putin! I am sorry, even if he helped save Syria from destruction before this permissive behavior toward Turkey terrorist regime and no military response speaks volumes of his
    cowardliness and disgusting backstabbing to the ally in dire need!!!

    AT LEAST ATTACK THE TURKISH ARTY FIRING INSIDE SYRIA AT SYRIAN POSITIONS
    ALREADY AND SHOT DOWN THE FUCKING DRONES!!!! DEFEND YOUR ALLY OR GET THE FUCK
    OUT – AT LEAST THE SYRIAN ARMY CAN THEN RESPOND BACK AND DESTROY TURKISH OPs
    FOR STARTERS UNLIKE NOW WHERE THEY ARE FORBIDDEN BECAUSE PUTIN TIES THEIR
    HANDS!

    Imagine the morale of Syrian troops where they are openly attacked by Turkey but there is no response from Russia! There are no close air support missions against terrorists either (bombing from 8kms with dumb bombs is not CAS but just plain dumb and inefficient and with no regards to civilian life)

    Where are the ka-50/52 helicopters with antitank missiles and cannons which would have a field day with attacking terrorists? Where are the Su-25 CAS missions? (dont give me a MANPADS excuse) What has happened with ATGM missile jammers which we have been seeing on some Syrian tanks years back and were advertised to defeat incoming missiles? No tanks are equipped with it anymore?

    How many more syrians have to die because of Putin soft policy toward Turkey? When will Russia start bringing fighters, SAMs and other equipment toconfront the turkish terrorist aggressor?! Because now they are hopelessly outnumbered. I am getting sick of this shit. Such cowardice, such low regard to
    human life for an ally is something that is deeply disturbing, he is willingly letting them die! If that is the case Russia should get the fuck out and let Erdogan have Idlib and his terrorist budies since Syria cannot defend themself. Be honest and tell them you wont defend them, not letting them into a meat
    grinder!

    Putin is morally bankrupt and is destroying reputation of the russian army. I once had Putin in high regard but now I see what he really is – a weak, pathetic, disgusting thug who just so happens to be good friend with Netanyahu and saudi King and wants to be a friend of Erdogan too, the guy who was supporting ISIS before.

      • Johny Flodder

        The video recording with the destruction of the Pantsir-S air defense missile system in Syria is a fake of the Turkish Ministry of Defense. The video has nothing to do with Syria, as it was made on the territory of Libya several months ago.

        The Russian ZRPK “Pantsir-S” is capable of detecting targets such as drones over several kilometers. If the air defense position were really attacked, the Syrian troops would start shooting down all Turkish drones indiscriminately, as has already been demonstrated with the Anka-S UAV

        • yep

          Range of “Pantsir-S” missiles is up to 20km so the radar range should be at least 25-30 km

            Nobody of German elites gives f**k about “the current “refugees are welcome” mood” and what German people want.

            They will cheat use CIA,MI6,Mossad if they have to to keep German nationalists from power.
            There are also EU sect lunatics, Green and similar who will help them in that.

            As long as they decide future of the Germany that will never happen !

            if you say so… I believe otherwise. Turkey obened the borders. The only Partie in the BRD to conquer the illegal immegration from whatever you want is the AfD. Now they have 20%…. Let the headchoppers come… They will reach their goal and everything will be finbe in good old germany. ;)

            Green is where my boots touch their rotten faces into the german ground. :) No suffer…just Darwin.

            btw.: If Herr Putin will suceed, the anual Darwin Award will go to Erdogan.

    The rusianb must do something, the Turkish are humihumilia The Russian super power status. They are making it seem that Russian can’t protect its allies.You got Israel stricken Syria and the whole of Europe,the United states of America and now Turkey. I could understand the Russian can’t truly stop the United states of America in order to prevent a nuclear war but Israel and Turkey.

  • Masha from Russia

    Kurds have the great chance to make an agreement with Damascus and jointly destroy the islamic state of turkey – fuck the ottomans!!!! every killed ottoman is a holiday for the World.

    • yep

      Let us wait and see if the Kurds will attack Turds 1st…
      If Kurds start to fight Turkey now any “agreement” will be easy to be made.
      But if they don’t attack Turks than there will be no “agreement”

  • Masha from Russia

    turkish scum are nothing but retarded cowards. the fact that the erdogan pig was begging nato for help is enough to prove that the turkish pigs are pussies.

  • Masha from Russia

    Russia has the legitimate right to exterminate all turkish scum on the territory of Syria. I want turkish scums to shot one Russian plane and then Russia will flatten them. ONLY DEAD TURKISH IS THE GOOD TURKISH.

    • yep

      Half dead are good also :-)

      • Kananda

        the best turk is turk without upper extremities. no harm for others, costs a lot of money for turkish government.

        • yep

          finally something that makes sense from you…

  • Angry Guy

    Check out the livemap. Turkey is bombing Syrian army again using drones!!!

  • Dibass

    Syria is no match for Turkey. Even Russia will struggle to bring Turkey to its knees without using nukes. From statements by NATO officials, Turkey has the backing of NATO if Russia were to conduct attacks on Turkish soil. Should Turkey and Syria get into a full-blown shooting war, the possibility of a direct attack on Turkish soil becomes real. I am willing to bet my last buck then that NATO will jump in if Turkey came under attack. Russia must not let this happen, otherwise, the whole Middle East will burn.

    I think the only solution to this crisis is a political one.

    • russ

      You have a raging gang that has broken into your house intending to rape your wife and daughters. steal everything of value and cave in the walls and you think you should reason with them? Good luck with that and tomorrow have your daughters treated for STDs…

      • Dibass

        I will recommend that you read some history about the Assad Dynasty and the Alawi sect. It will make you look at this war from a different perspective.

        Let me make something clear here: Turkey’s war “with Assad” has nothing to do with stealing Syria’s wealth. It has everything to do with Aqeeda (Creed, or Islamic belief).

        The Aliwites belief that Ali (A pious companion, brother, and son-in-law of Prophet Muhammad (S)) is God. They also do not believe in the existence of hell and heaven. They believe in reincarnation. And many more evil beliefs that will shock the life out of Most Muslims.

        This same evil cult (Alawi) seized power in a Military coup in Syria when they dominated the Syrian Army. The Sunnis didn’t care much about joining the army back then because they considered it a poor mans profession. Now they are paying dearly for that stupid mistake.

        The Alawites have tortured and murdered many Sunnis, particularly the scholars who attempted to awaken the Sunni population to the evil of this sect ruling their country. Assad’s father survived a revolt in the past by employing truly horrific and brutal measures. I think that this time, it is the end of the road for the Alawites.

        People who support Turkey’s fight against the Alawites do not necessarily ally with America and Israel. In fact, Turkey and Israel are enemies. Neither is this war aimed at Russia. Turkey has got nothing against Russia.

        Turkey cannot let the Alawites (Assad and his group) win this war after so much pain and suffering by the Sunnis of Syria. The Sunni Muslim countries should join forces with Turkey (Fuck the Iranian regime and its proxies), and restore a truly Sunni aqeeda in Syria. Iran can fight its wars with Israel and America without involving any Sunni population. Why do they constantly hide behind proxies. If they can’t fight the U.S, why not surrender until another time in the future? Why will they keep enacting policies that are bring death and destruction to the innocent Muslim populations of the Middle East? It is because they were shipping weapons to Hezbollah via Syria that Syria became a target. Israel leaned on the U.S to cut off this link between Iran and Hezbollah. Now, hundreds of thousands have died in Syria, with millions suffering for years – all because of Iran.

        Anyone disagree with my opinion, let him/her speak up. I am willing to go deeper into this topic, with undeniable proofs

        • Kananda

          You will agree then, that the shia regions around the gulf will unite with iran, will not you?

          fuck all moslems! nuke mekka!

  • Pampi Ta

    Half these images are from Libya. Don’t fall to Turkish propaganda…

  • Ralph Conner

    Now that the Turks have saved face, they can go home.

  • George Fotiadis

    1. How the hell did the Russians let the Ucavs fly over Syria on a no flight zone (Ucavs are no different than a plane on the harm they can make) this is something i cannot understand.
    Explanation could be, that Russia wanted to give Turkey something like you can’t use your F16 but you can use your Ucavs, so to please and not lose the new ally.

    2. What about the Syrian air defence, with Pantsirs and S300, they definitely can shoot down any drone, can someone explain?

    • It seems Turkey actually destroyed a Pantsir system with their armed UAV. I think normally a Pantsir system wouldn’t allow drones flying all over the place but It’s not being operated by Russians, rather by SAA. Which probably does not have the same level of advanced military technology education like Russian SOFs.

      As for the S-300, i think the only couple of ones are stationed around Damascus, which makes sense.

  • TTdr

    China should start supply SAA drones to whack Turkey homeland in retaliation. Chinese drones are performing very well in Libya resistance against USNato-Turkey.

    • Kananda

      china shits on the world.

      • TTdr

        Why make stupid comment?

        • Kananda

          yours was

          china never was interested in the world policy. never during several thousands years. this is their konfucianistic mentality. also today declared several times this direction.

          in syria sent ONLY health care materials. more will not come.

          the chinese politics was, is and will be focused only on indochina, central asia, the land in far east which stole from them russia in the 19th century. that´s all.

          • TTdr

            So what got such non interference policy to do with your comment of China shits everywhere?

            If you ever follow closely, China was providing all the weapons, uniform, boots, military supplies, medical, food and construction materials to Syria as quiet support to Syrians war against USNato-ISIS terrorism. Prez Xi claimed it was a pre-war contract…you believe?

            Its because Turkey is training thousands of China Uyghur terrorists with CIA in Syria war, to be smuggled back as cancers for China Xinjiang. RuAF had carpet bombed them. If Syria down, Russia influence in ME will be clipped. Iran will fall next. Then all ME oils will come under USNato control, threatening China oil supply.

            You might think your god has supplies ammunition & everything in that 7~9yrs war to upkeep tens of millions Syrians & its army fighting war during USNato embargo, while all its oil are robbed. Russia economy will have bankrupted if it has to feed all Syria people while fighting the costly war.

            China is likely the largest financial backer while Russia army do the fighting job in partnership.

          • TTdr

            Here’s most recent China support to Syria, even Chinese knows its impossible for Syrians to pay back. Its been these way for last 7yrs. Chinese does thing in lw profile & non interference policy is their corner stone.

            China & Syria signed economy pact & aids.

  • χρηστος

    why Syria or Russia hasn’t until now proved or even state that the video is fake?

  • LaRata

    Why the sa-22 do not fire at the turk drone??? Artillery round on the sa-22 ??? Are the turk drone mark target for the turk artillery??

    • It’s hard to hit drones with fighter jets. Imagine a fighter with high speed trying to hit a very small and versatile target in the air.

      • Kananda

        he is talking about ad system. sa-22 is the pantsir. allegedly the bestest antidrone weapon.

  • Joe Dickson

    This is a serious blow to the reputation of Russian air defences. They are effectively useless against UCAVs. Where was the air combat patrol?

    • Kananda

      the only positive outcome of russian adventure in syria is the fact, that putin shows, how ineffective is the russian military technique :DDD

      tudor miron, the stickerman will cricify me :-O

  • Hakan Hatipoğlu

    We can defeat Russian air defence systems by our drones. Russian soldier will not be safe. We can hit all of their air defence systems. Our Koral electronic warfare systems blinded Russian defence systems. Our systems are better than American systems and İsraeli Systems. we will kill all Hizbullah soldiers in the Syria.

  • Terence Silvestre Jr.

    As always the cowardice of Syria’s allied Russia in front of NATO member Turkey was bigger than his manhood and ended up leaving his Syrian ally totally unprotected, delivering him at the mercy of the Turkish drones and artillery.
    It is only a matter of time before Syria ends up being totally invaded by Turkey and its puppets and the Russians themselves end up fleeing with their tail between their legs back to their embarrassed mother Russia, I fear.
    Russia did it again but this time, I think, will be the end for Syria unless they are rescued by their brave ally Iran if the coronavirus does not finish them first, my friends.
    As much as you criticize my point of view, it will not cease to be as realistic and objective as real events in the field can be taken into account as always, instead of pure talk and utopian irealisables dreams from many of you reviewing here..
    Because the truth will always be true no matter how unpopular and painful it may be..

    • Kananda

      I saw the same scenary in Afghanistan.

      Brezhnev sent troops, told what must do the afghani government. then russians played their battle games. When saw, they are not enough strong, removed the troops and let fall the whole country.

      Ouch, inbetween also changed the afghan leader. We will see, whether russians obey Assad, or not?

      Russia was always local player, not a global one.

  • World_Eye

    AS FOR THE PANTSIR, that PANTSIR is DESTROYED IN LIBYA, Haftar forces confirmed it, was while back ago, don’t fall for Turkish propaganda. they can never shoot down Pantsir in Syria.
