Turkish Military Deployed Dozens Of Vehicles In Syria’s Greater Idlib In Last Two Days: Monitoring Group

The Turkish military deployed dozens of vehicles in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib over the last two days, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported.

On April 29, a Turkish convoy consisting of 25 military vehicles entered Greater Idlib. A second convoy, consisting of 35 vehicles, was deployed in the region on April 30.

“[The Turkish military vehicles] carried military and logistical equipment,” the London-based monitoring group said in its report.

Both convoys entered Greater Idlib through the Kafr Lusin border crossing, which has become the main supply route for Turkish troops in northwest Syria.

According to the SOHR, Turkey has deployed 2,925 vehicles in Greater Idlib since the ceasefire became active on March 5. In addition to previously deployed equipment, a total of 6,330 Turkish vehicles are currently in the Syrian region.

The vehicles deployed in Greater Idlib are mainly trucks, armored personnel carriers (APCs), battle tanks, self-propelled howitzers and multiple rocket launchers. Radars and air-defense systems were also deployed there.

Ankara is now taking steps to implement the March 5 agreement with Russia. Nevertheless, its military buildup in Idlib appears to be pointed against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and not terrorist groups occupying the region.

hehe, soon there will be no room left over for even more and more turkish military equipment…I wonder if there is any military equipment left inside turkish territory…looks like the density of turkish army per m2 in Idlib will soon overcome the density of population per m2 in India’s Mumbay!!…but in order to fit even more turkish troops in, the turdish dictator Goatdogan will probably start to expel the syrian population out of Idlib…

PS…I want to highlight how stupid the turdish military strategy is vis-a-vis to the Idlib annexiation…

The more military equipment deployment in Idlib (outside turkey, therefore outside NATO territory) the more closed to a total defeat Turkey will be in a direct military confruntation with Russia..it is so conveniant and easy to achieve for Russia…so that is why Russia is turning a blind eye to all these stupid manouvers of the turdish military..

Porc Halal

PPS…and then after the door is fully open for the total colapse of turkey as a state…

The Objective

What a dreamer you are. Turkey isn’t fighting Russia in Syria just like Israel isn’t fighting Russia. It is my opinion that Turkey and Russia are having negotiations towards ending the Syrian war. Lately, Russia has been voicing its disapproval of the way Assad is running Syria, and some prominent Russian figures even suggested replacements to Assad that both the West and Russia/Iran/China will accept. Russia doesn’t appear to oppose this Turkish deployments at all. These deployments are only meant to pressure Assad to agree to a U.N proposition prepared and submitted by Iran, Russia, and China. That U.N resolution was adopted unanimously but guess who rejected it? Assad!

the subject is beyond your comprehension, dude …just drop it

Porc Halal

anyway, you make up stories as always …


Russia fight Turkey…?
Is it a dream you had last night?

Xoli Xoli

Russia will destroy Turkey without any loses in few seconds.

Porc Halal

Are you for real?!…they already fight against eachother in Syria and Libya

Porc Halal

Your self confidence is baseless…

Porc Halal

Who do you think turkey is anyway?!…the fact that US sold a lot of military equipment to an undeveloped country like turkey just because US thought it is strategicaly placed near their eternal enemy, ie Russia, doesn’t mean that turkey is a military threat to anyone who has a reasonable army even less so in the face of a military power like Russia …only a brainless and baseless individual will question that…i guess you have the brain washed by the propaganda of the ‘muslim brotherhood’ party in turkey, that is, the AKP and its leader Goatdogan…

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
