The Turkish military is continuing its large-scale deployment in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib, according to several opposition sources.

On March 19, the Turkish military established another “observation post” in the region, near the town of al-Jinah in the northwestern Aleppo countryside. A day earlier, a similar post was set up near the town of Ram Hamadan in northern Idlib.

The Turkish military also reinforced its older posts in Greater Idlib. Three convoys, consisting of dozens of battle tanks, armored vehicles, rocket launchers and howitzers, arrived in the region in the last 24 hours.

According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), the total number of Turkish “observation posts” in Greater Idlib is now 43. Originally, only 12 were established to observe the ceasefire around the region.

These “observation posts” are supporting militants in Greater Idlib, including those affiliated with al-Qaeda. From these posts, the Turkish military shelled Syrian Arab Army (SAA) positions and even opened fire at Russian warplanes during the last confrontation in the region.

    Turkey now is starting to smell of counting on new NATO help.

    • Jens Holm

      You should not wonder. Russians are more and more helpers to Assads, so a complete Nato no hs become more and more impossible.

      Some also might remind someone here, that Turkey do work and are paid to keep 3,5 mio refugees away from EU, where many are in Nato as well.

      We are kind of forced to even I am sure we dont support Turks being in Syroa and Iraq at all.

      So many here forget Turks has taken a boig vorner of northern Iraq as well. At least people has not forgotten Turks now are in Libya for good and bad reasons as well.

    Turkey was there to stay in entire Northern Syria from the start to change the map.

    • Jens Holm

      Something like that. They want to controll all Kurds and thats inportant parts of northern and western Syria.

  • klove and light

    Putin you fucking bibi cock sucking treacherous Zionist PIG.
    the russian Military Leadership should hang you and then burn you. and send 50% ashes to bibi in Israel and 50% to erdogan in Turkey.

      Putting in Jews and pigs is higly incorrect.

      I see none of them deciding things there. If they did, it would not be like that.

      If Assads were better as pigs are, they would have wone years ago. If the pigs were the Jihadists, they today would be peacefull as long as they could devellop their agriculture systems as grow enough food food. Assads has not allowed that.

      Turks probatly would be there learning do treat Kurds better too and have succes for it and the 60 million Turks in Turkey as well.

      An alternative could be all should have their own pig and learn to treat them well. They should be tested every year for that. Obly if they could, they should be allowed to be partners to non bought wieves.

      Pigs living here has much better lifes then almost any girl and women in Denmark. I do admit we the difference is we do eat the pigs:)

    • Jens Holm

      Turks has not changed anything. Its named KEEP. Thats often the difficult thing in war as well as peace.

    • javier

      yes they will play with themselves

  • Jens Holm

    Nrmally that source is reliable most of the time. I would like to see one more source for it.

    Erdogan will continue to act tough and do US, isreal, and nato’s bidding, even if it ruins Turkey. His foreign policy seems to run parallel with the US and prolonging the destruction of Syria will only weaken it against attacks from the isreali regime.

    How to win friends and influence people isn’t on the Erdogan agenda.

    • Jens Holm

      I dont see Turks by AKP are trying to win friends.

      The Nato connection is a less and lesser important one based on USSR being strong. Now they hardly are anything and declining.

      So if Turks get anything from us it is “nostalgy” help. They deserve nothing.

    The risk of a broader war still exists – even world war – in the preoccupation with the Corona pandemic. There are four horsemen of the apocalypse.

    Thanks, Volodimir V. Putin!

    Erdogan

  • El Mashi

    Nato cannot fight for Erdogan in Syria against Russia. Nato is deceased with CoV2 pandemic. Soon Turkey will be infected form Europe. The CoV2 pandemic is more of a threat to Turkey than Assad. This is a no brainer. Erdogan’s Neo Ottoman dreams are going up in smoke as we speak.

  • gustavo

    Was this Turkey invasion in agreement with Russia ?

    • Xoli Xoli

      No it has been made possible by Putin ceasefire with great apology for Turkey soldiers death who were risking attempting downing Russian jets.

      • gustavo
