Turkish Military Establishes First Observation Post Near Idlib City

On February 7 morning, the Turkish military established its first observation post around the city of Idlib in northwest Syria.

According to opposition sources, a unit of the Turkish Armed Froces, consisting of several battle tanks, vehicles and dozens of troops, established the post in the “Military Housing Complex,” which is located between Idlib city and the town of Sarmin to the south.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is now situated less than 1 km away from Sarmin and only 9 km to the south of Idlib’s city center.

A day earlier, the Turkish military took over Taftanaz Air Base in eastern Idlib, deploying dozens of battel tanks, armored vehicles and engineering vehicles there.

Al-Mayadeen reported earlier this week that the Turkish military inspected terrorists’ positions around Idlib city in what appears to be preparations to establish observation posts there.

The Turkish military followed the same tactic in Saraqib, establishing four posts around it last week in an effort to stop the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) attack. However, the army went on and liberated the city.

Isengardlı Saruman Pasha

Isengardlı Saruman Pasha

El Bab, Afrin, Jinderes, Tel Abyad, Tel Rifat, Azaz and their environment is our now and the Syrian marauder’s army will never take the entire Idlib. Okey ?

ruca

Go home and hug your family. It’s the best of your alternatives.

Zionism = EVIL

The coward illiterate pimp Erdogan is sending poor illiterate Anatolian religious cannon fodder as middle class and rich Turkeys don’t get conscripted in the corrupt system, so the poor uneducated Turkeys have to go die for Erdogan’s megalomania.

Zionism = EVIL

You Turkeys are really dumber than donkeys, torki khar :)

Zionism = EVIL

These OP are a desperate ugly face saving last ditch effort by the Turkeys as their whole Syrian terror campaign goes to pot. Strategically, they are indefensible or logistically sustainable surrounded by a sea of hostile forces.

Red Pilled ThoughtCrimes

I want January 2016 war diaries please.

not, would like, not would be cool. i WANT them

have watched nearly every southfront war report since the russians entered the war.

NATO members are exiting NATO. Because foolish Erdogan.

EveryoneIsBiased

I would hope so. Sadly our NATO politicians are brain dead puppets.

Free man

Turkish observation points are one of the wonders of the Middle East. No one knows or understands their role. In practice, they serve as a landmark for the SAA, as where to go.

EveryoneIsBiased

As i said before, they are BAIT.
Erdogan is deperate for the SAA to give him a pretext to an all out attack.
He would actually love to see his bait soliders attacked and killed; I bet the propaganda for this event is already ready.
Lets hope it does not come to this.
Another thing is, that this provides Erdogan with more leverage in case of a political settlement.
Win win for Erdogan, Loose-Loose for the poor sobs sitting in those bunkers.

Free man

“Erdogan is desperate for the SAA to give him a pretext to an all out attack.” – In the past I thought so too, until I realized that the more leaders of Muslim countries are threatening, the less they actually do some thing.
The more Erdogan is threatening , the more obvious Turkey will do very little.

I think Erdogan wants to occupy more as possible of syrian land permanently with some puppet government who wil lately “beg” Erdo to join that part to Turkey. Same what Israelis are doing with Golan Heights.

EveryoneIsBiased

Spot on. Sadly. Its a clever, while ruthless tactic from the Sultan..

I would give away a house if I woke up tomorrow morning and read that the Russia Armed Forces and the SAA bombed and killed every single Turkish troop that has even one toe in Syria.

This continuing assault and genocide on the people of Syria cannot stand… it is more than obvious that since the International Criminal Court has yet to file charges against the U.S., Israel, Saudi Arabia, and every NATO state that has contributed to this genocide, that they are nothing more than yet another institution that is under the complete control of the U.S. / UN / Israel.

An OP is not going to stop a military advance. To say that is stupid. All they do is observe what is happening in their field of vison and report back to base what is going on. The tanks are for their protection but should they consider attacking the SAA they would be removed pretty quickly either from the air and or combined artillary / tanks . All the SAA does is goes around them at a safe distance and surround them.
Erdogan is no Mustafa Kemal Atatürk who said too his newly arriving troops . ” you did not come here too fight , you came here to die for your country ” and they did.

TORKI OP #8 STRONK

Next on twitter:
Jihadi_Julien – “I HATE YOU ERDOGAN, NEVER AGAIN WILL I BELIEVE WHEN YOU SAY PROTECT CIVILIANS. SAA NOW CAPTURE IDLIB, MY JOB IS OVER”

Zionism = EVIL

PS, I AM HEADED FOR EUROPE NOW.

Turkey gives Syrian regime a “threat”; Turkey says that they have until the end of February to withdraw from Idlib Syria.

Turkey is trying to steal Syria’s real estate…
“TURKEY HAS LOST THEIR MARBLES”
…I am guessing they like death better than living.

Syria should send them a letter or a video with Italian hand gestures “F**K U” “YOU CRAZY” “I’LL, I’LL BREAK YOUR FACE” “IF I CATCH YOU, I’LL KICK YOUR ASS”:

Syrian Armed Forces, Russia & the other Syria allies MUST KEEP POUNDING !!! KEEP POUNDING !!! KEEP POUNDING 24/7 !!! UNTIL THEY REACH THE TURKISH BORDER. DO NOT APPEASE ILLEGAL TRESPASSERS.
