A Turkish helicopter has landed in the area near a check point, located at the near-border village of Atme in northern Idlib province, a senior member of the Syrian Democratic Council, Rizan Hado, said.

“The helicopter was carrying a number of Turkish officers and several boxes, whose contents are unknown, but sources said that they were full of advanced weapons, which were unloaded,” Hado noted.

At the same time, according to Kurdish sources, fighter jets of the Turkish Air Force are currently flying over villages, located near the town of al-Qahtaniyeh in the northeastern parts of Hasaka, and bomb all the region, while Turkish troops and their military vehicles have been deployed at the areas near Syrian-Turkish borders.

At the end of last month, it was reported that several trucks of ammunition were sent to Jabhat Fateh al-Sham (previously known as the Al-Nusra Front) and Ahrar al-Sham (also known as the Harakat Ahrar al-Sham al-Islamiyya) terrorists, deployed at a military base near Atme near-border region. Reportedly, about 20 trucks, loaded with ammunition, were sent to terrorists in northern Syria by Ankara. Two days ago, the trucks entered Atme via Bukulmez region, which borders with the village of Deir Balut, located in the northwestern part of Aleppo.

According to October’s reports, a number of terrorists of the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham group, captured by the Syrian forces in Sheikh Saeed districts in the southern part of the city of Aleppo, admitted that they recently received a military training in camps, located on the territories of Turkey.

Russia? Nock if you are there! But I suspect there is a secret treaty between Putin and Erdogan for the Assad fall.

Chemical weapons to mount another false flag attack, perhaps?


I am afraid they are some kind of infantry anti-air device along lines of IGLA (‘MANPAD’).


The delivery is a sign that erdogan changed his mind. The real reason operation “Euphrates Shield” has come to a halt is because erdogan redeploy those foreign fighters backnowledge to idlib to launch the new aleppo offensive.

Erdogan is very invested in the health of this mercenary force, he needs them to eventually fight the kurds and take both bab and manbij. He cant take both aleppo and manbij, the former is aided by Russia the latter is aided by America , so he may have calculated defeating Russia would be easier.

Erdogan is behaving unwisely. He is extremely isolated and needs allies. Another foreign backed revolution is going to happen, soon, and only a strong ally can save his neck.

why don’t the kurds stop this nonsense. the only way to have a guaranty to stop being attacked by turks, would be to give up the kurdish uprise and go back join the syrian government. remember they uprised against the syrian government. if the kurds, at least the kurds in the west, would end their uprise and join the syrian government, they would have protaction not only from the syrian government but also from it’s allies like russia. isn’t that a very reasonable decision to make??

i don’t understand. what’s so honorable about the kurds eventhough they are opportunists who are using the syrian disaster only for their benefits regardless of any consequences at all. their agenda could cause the syrian nation to split to 3~4 pieces or could develope into an international conflict.

the Kurds are not the scapegoat, Gue.
