Turkish-led Forces Attack Saraqib As Syrian Army Advances On Afis (Map Update)

Click to see the full-size image

On March 4, units of the Syrian Army supported by Russian and Syrian warplanes launched an attack on the town of Afis north of Saraqib in the province of Idlib.

Government forces are aiming to clear the town of Turkish-led forces in order to secure the M5 highway from possible attacks from the area. According to pro-Syrian sources, clashes in Afis are now ongoing.

A closer look at ‘moderate suicide bombers’ supported by Turkey in Idlib:

At the same time, al-Qaeda terrorists backed up by the Turkish artillery and air power carried out another attempt to capture Saraqib, where the Russian Military Police had been deployed.

Pro-government soruces claim that Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, the Turkistan Islamic Party and other al-Qaeda-linked friends of the Erdogan regime were welcomed with intense air and artillery strikes and the attack was repelled. However, these claims still have to be confirmed. The situation on the ground remains tense.

On March 5, the  Turkish and Russian leaders are set to meet in Moscow to discuss the situation in Idlib. So, the Turkish leadership fiercely wants to capture Saraqib before the meeting.

Pro-militant sources also claim that the Syrian Army shelled another Turkish observation post.

During the past 24 hours, 3 soldiers were killed and 15 others were injured according to official statements by the Turkish Defense Ministry.

Some recent footage from the Saraqib area:

Habib

ColinNZ

Terrorist attack supported by Turkey on Saraqib failed miserably with dozens of rats & Turkish armour annihilated.

yep

Great news thanks !

Concrete Mike

Now that is good morning news, thanks bud!

FlorianGeyer

I would pay to listen to the Putin and Erdo meeting in Moscow tomorrow, Mike.

Perhaps Erdo will be treated to a long holiday in the ‘Black Dolphin’. Its a very secure and suitable facility for Erdo. :)

Wahid Algiers

Maybe the best jail for ErDOGGY and his entourage.

Concrete Mike

Im guessing the most often used word will be nyet!

If one is patient, the Erdogan problem will solve itself, his own countrymen will eventually turn on him, rest assured.

To assume Turkey is acting as a homogenous entity is a dangerous mistake.

This will be Erdogan’s downfall though and its closer than we think. Thats why they are desperatly protecting al nusrah.

Tudor Miron

Yes, there’s no point interrupting Erdo’s digging of his own grave.

Tudor Miron

Those who know Russian should listen to this https://youtu.be/JXke3K9oFoo

Tastes good with coffee.

Erdoğan is truly dragging in Turkey and it’s armed forces into disaster . To me it’s absolutely mind boggling that the Turkish servicemen accept to get killed and to be associated and with the worst scum of the earth , such as Al-Qaeda and the other 32 different flavors of jihhadis, it’s truly amazing.

yep

“mind boggling” if you forget that Erdogan has imprisoned tens of thousands of people only because of failed coup. Not to count al the others before and after the coup who also have end up in prison.
Everybody who had some brains between the ears has left Turkey long time ago or simply rotting in prison.

Fair treatment

Yes I remember..
Turkish president he is really a dictator..
Like HITLER..

Wahid Algiers

Don’ t say anything against Hitler you rat!

goingbrokes

people refer to Hitler as if they know something about him, in reality they know nothing at all…

Karen Bartlett

The US military does the same, only more secretly.

jm74

Another way at looking into the Erdogan/Putin relationship is that Putin led Erdogan into this situation, observation posts, oil/gas pipeline, trade etc knowing that Erdogan will violate any agreement and Putin never forgave Erdogan for shooting down that Russian jet back in 2015. A wishful opinion.

yep

Erdogan’s pay day will come and nothing can stop that to happen.

goingbrokes

Agree. But it actually applies to everyone!

yep

As long as that applies to every man like him I don’t mind

geopolitica

i don’t think so if russia was waiting for war she will send more and better equipment before the hostility start with turkey… russia made a big mistake not preparing a full war against turkey

goingbrokes

Why? Turkey is losing already, and their whole army is unmotivated about Idlib. Russia is keeping Syrians supplied and they win by default. Get a grip.

geopolitica

Mayby i miss to precise my think russia diden’t supply enought electronic warfare for the turkish drone … this was a strategic error Look corrected since …

Fair treatment

I don’t understand why Syria army dosent annihilate the Turkish post which they are in their control…

geopolitica

if they do this they will loose all the leverage possible, don’t worry if the situation go to full scale war they will die slowly

Vollkrassmann

I badly hope so…

FlorianGeyer

The surrounded posts are a bargaining chip for the SAA.

Destroyed posts with dead Turks are not.

Wahid Algiers

YOU get it.

gustavo

They are protected by Russia ! Yes, it is hard to believe, but Putin has to please Erdogan somehow.

alejandro casalegno

This time in Saraqib……………………..NO STEP BACK!!!!!!!!!!!

Fair treatment

They should unleash a bombing campaign against Turkey in Syria that will flatten everything in ..
Then they will run like rats to their brother Turkey

geopolitica

like tchetchen war carpet bomb the area but occident will use the “civil” to accuse russia of war crime

Karen Bartlett

You mean like the US did to Raqqa, killing thousands of civilians in the process?

Legis Legis Juscius

turkish started operation with 400 tanks, 200 howitzers and 7000 of their best soldiers,swarms of drones still failed to achieve any goals, and their thinking they can fight russain military machine??:))

goingbrokes

Reality is starting to sink in!

Vollkrassmann

The Turkey Obs posts should now be treated as enemy that has to be extinguished. The Turkeys are war criminals as they are aggressive against a neighboring country who never violated any square meter of Turkey soil. Hopefully the world’s community will see this fact and decide to take consequences agains the Turkish policy of warmongering: Sanctions against Turkeyland.

geopolitica

i think you are dreaming almost all occidental politics support daesh

Saint Jimmy (Russian American)

Just kill all of the Turks at these posts. I think that’s going to happen. Many Turks have already been killed for NOTHING. “Occidental” politicians are completely corrupt and totally out of touch with the people. My country – the US – is no longer a democracy.

Karen Bartlett

It never was a democracy. The founders feared the majority would control everybody else. It was a Republic, States united in a voluntary and mutually beneficial agreement, until 1865. However, it claims to be a democracy AND a Republic. But it’s run by a bunch of lying thieves and murderers.

seawolf

Its Turkish people which will send Erdogan home.

Concrete Mike

Thats right brother, the turkish people need to stand up to the fascist gray wolves and fascist muslim brotherhood.

Its up to them now.

RichardD

The Turkish heavy weapons providing fire support for the terrorists, including tanks, MLRS and tracked howitzers, need to be taken out.

Tudor Miron

Erdo is going for broke. Considering that Russian PM is deployed in Saraqib this will not end well for him.

speedball

erdogan must go
