Unidentified Warplanes Reportedly Struck Turkish Positions Near Syria's Atarib (UPDATED)

A VERY illustrative image

UPDATE: Further reports say that the targeted convoy was consisting of both Turkish-backed militants and Turkish troops. No Turkish personnel were injured.

**

Late on February 10, unidentified warplanes struck positions of the Turkish Army at the Base 46 area, near the town of Atarib in western Aleppo, according to sources close to Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and other ‘moderate opposition’ groups.

These reports remain unconfirmed.

The supposed airstrikes followed another round of escalation between the Syrian Army and the Turkish Armed Forces in the province of Idlib. The Turkish side tried to provide a direct military support to Hayat Tahrir al-Sham militants attacking Saraqib, but got several artillery strikes to its forces at Taftanaz Military Airbase. After this, Ankara announced another decisive PR victory over the Assad regime and once again declared its commitement to the political solution of the conflict.

    Russia should allowed SDF attack Turkey and the same time provide more weapons, such SU-30, MIG-29, S-400, attack helicopters for allowing Turkey occupy SYria

      You signed off your sovereignty to Russia for the next 100 years.What do you want more? Extend to 500 years?

    • gustavo

      Firstly, SDF must get rid of its stupid idea (given by USA-Israel) of Syria separation.

  • Xoli Xoli

    The is a rumor that crazy fuck Erdogan will scrap s-400 deal.Which is eventually good for Syrian allies and Trump.Because Erdogan is a exist of evil.

    • Sal

      If he scraps the deal he still has to pay the money otherwise Putin will kill his tourism once and for all. Erdogans economy can’t handle another embargo from Russia. Turkey has no friends only Pakistan.
      Let him turn back to the Jews and American to save his economy but they will only save it by removing his sorry ass.

      • Xoli Xoli

        True indeed.Erdogan foolish aggressive manners chase everyone away.Truely no one like him.Their dont trust him either. France,USA ,Germany and Britain only used his base.Because Erdogan feels good when you call him my friend or member.

      • Albert Pike

        ‘Let him turn back to the Jews…’

        I don’t think he has ever turned away from the Jews. Israel is his main arms supplier. You don’t buy stuff from a country (which surely has a remote kill switch, that you can’t use any of it against Israel), if you intend to move away from them. That was -and is- only propaganda from Dönmeh Erdogan – to believed by his Mustafa’s, because he is a Zionist, who got voted into Power by the Turks on an anti Zionist ticket. He therefore used the oldest trick in the book, and it worked…

        http://elderofziyon.blogspot.com/2013/08/old-video-of-erdogan-visiting-herzls.html

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Pakistan is dead broke and also an Americunt and Zionist arse-kisser.

    • Wayne Nicholson

      There’s nothing to be scraped. The deal is done the cheque is cashed…. Erdogan owns an S-400. He can scrap future orders of missiles but I’m not sure how it would look to the electorate to have a $2B missile system that he doesn’t have missiles for because he’s butt hurt.

      • Xoli Xoli

        Thanks but when he started to negotiation. Erdogan request Russia to be loan in order to buy s-400.Meaning he is paying in installments. No wonder USA Pompeo forces him to cancel the deal or else he wont get F35 jets .

  • antoun

    hum russian air force has bombarded convoy turck in fact :)

      That would be a wonderful news for most of us (too see that Russia is taken the right way).

  • ColinNZ

    From the senior SAA military on the ground in Idlib:

    “Claims by the Turkish MoD or Erdogan about them killing SAA or targeting 100+ positions are false.
    If such attack was done by the Turkish army on our troops, I can assure you that the Turkish soldiers in the posts we surround will be turned into Kebabs in a heart beat.”

          • Trauma2000

            I’ve also been watching the ‘Syrian war’ since 2011. But what you actually meant was: “The mercenaries and terrorists were given everything to continue the WAR OF TERROR’ but they screwed up.

            So much for IsraHell’s WAR OF TERROR. So much money was spent and still… nuddah.

          • Islamic Power

            “mercenaries and terrorists” obviously havent educated yourself, the war didnt start out as such

          • RAAS

            Informed, not “educated”. You must be ignorance personified. Did you forget “…we are going to take out 7 countries in 5 years…” It has always been “mercenaries and terrorists”. The same with Libya…

            Have you noticed, the nations on the list did not have Rothschild controlled central banks?

            What is the first thing they do, post invasion? Is it not set up the Rothschild Central Bank? Funny how Syria has no Rothschild debt and Iran, Cuba and North Korea have no Rothschild Central Banks or Roths hild debt?

          • RAAS

            Yes, I know that. It was the same with “apartheid” South Africa. They did have relations and trade with Israel, but rejected their Rothschild-Zionist controlled central bank. The ruling governmental party, ANC, was created by Rothschild-zionists to overthrow Afrikaner government. While the whole world was screaming “Apartheid”, Israel was illegally occupying and bombing Palestine with impunity.

          • AM Hants

            Owing to ignorance, I do remember the artists of the 80s, new on the scene, but, running with a political agenda. Around the same time Common Purpose popped up and So ros was looking for attention. They were freaking out, with regards South Africa, ‘Sun City’, who and who could not play there.

            I only woke up in 2014, and looking back at the 80s, the globalist movement and where we are today, it makes perfect sense. How much did the Globalists make out of Ethiopia, with a little help from Geldof and ‘Live Aid’?

            Amongst the first voices of truth about Syria I encountered were Rev Andrew Ashdown with a UK Peace Delegation, and Madelyn Hoffman with the US Peace Council.

            Rev Andrew Ashdown was a member of the multi-faith UK Peace Delegation to Syria in 2016 and was interviewed by Mike Robinson on UK Column News:

            UK Column News – A Tour of Syrian Realities with Andrew Ashdown (6th October 2016)
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zT17RRF_dLM

            Rev Ashdown: “Everywhere we went the narratives that we hear, here in the West, are just completely – almost just thrown out the window.”

            Similarly, Madelyn Hoffman as a member of the US Peace Council

            • Madelyn Hoffman of US Peace Council (Excerpt)
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMC8bmHhPK4

            Hoffman: “… it is NOT President Assad against his own people – it is President Assad AND the Syrian people ALL TOGETHER – IN UNITY – against outside forces – outside mercenary forces – TERROR ORGANISATIONS … “

          • Xoli Xoli

            Yes you are right their have potential of hit and run.Potential of killing kids,blind,helpless and elders. Potential of raping gaots,refugees and camel.

          • Islamic Power

            i guess you havent seen bashars soldiers crimes against humanity, SAA and shabiha thugs taught ISIS and the rebels the way of slaughter and torture

          • Xoli Xoli

            You Turkey people are severely oppressed. If you say anything against the government officials your heads are chop off by Erdogan rebels.In Syria only Erdogan terrorists chop off kids and mens heads.Womens heads are chop off by Turkey soldiers if their refused for sex.All the people in government controlled territory are safe.Only Turkish soldiers shell them in Idlib and Aleppo.

          • Davki

            True. The SAA was in no position to win this war without Russian help. And also true… the protests started out right. Even B. Al-Asad could have stopped all of this, but he didn’t want to.

      • Xoli Xoli

        Turkey does not have fighting experience.Turkey police overruns the army during fake coup and arrested half of Turkey army.

        • Wolfgang Wolf

          last combat experience was somehow around WW1

          • Maximus Decimus Meridius

            Turkey, Cyprus and the war in Korea. He has been fighting the PKK indirectly for 40 years. In him he kicked his ass. In addition, Imia also kicked the ass of Greece. We protect ourselves from terrorists in Syria and Iraq.

      • Rafik Chauhan

        Even if Russia doesn’t provide Air support to SAA against Turkey. Same thing Russia will not allow Turkish air fore to enter in Syria. so the battle between Syrian airforce/ SAA and Turkish convoy. will be dead kabab for turkeish and Terriost. Bcuz defently Syrian airforce wont allow Turkish convey to roam freely inside Syria. so Erdogon know very well without Turkish air force thier troop will kabab in Syria idlib.

      • AM Hants

        Syria invited Russia to lend a hand. Turkey and the US never got the invite.

        Since Russia and Iran arrived, the SAA received further training, with good effect. Lovely to see them on the winning side, when defending their sovereign nation.

    • Liberal guy

      U r so true pal

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Erdogan is Ankara Arsehole and ten times worse than Baghdad Bob or Riyadh Ron in telling absolute lies. As I mentioned before, the Turkey scum have been hit hard in Idlib and have lost over 200 dead and wounded and as the other SF article clearly shows, they have suffered heavy losses in armor. They have have been hit by very effective airstrikes by “unknown aircraft” and these airstrikes will intensify as Russian airforce will not tolerate any Turkeys flying in Syrian airspace as yesterday’s single SU-35 interception of 4 Turkey junk F-16 clearly showed. The Arsehole Erdogan is a illiterate coward and is getting poor ill-trained Anatolian peasant cannon fodder killed for a pipe dream. Pretty soon Hezbollah will be unleashed and the Turkeys will really understand what war is all about, this is no PKK pansies they are dealing with. GET THE FUCK OUT OF SYRIA!

      • Vincent Redstar

        PKK always talk a big game then retreat after 10 min of actual fighting and beg the SAA for help – then when its over ask for their own autonomous region hahahah

      The question is ….what will be the USA-NATO-ISrael through Turkey ?

  • Kananda

    The Turkish Army and TFSA are currently shelling Maranaz,
    Shawarighat al Arz, Qallat Shawarighat, Kafr Antoun, Irashideh, Tat
    Marash, and Milkiyah with rockets, mortars, and artillery.

    The dog from Ankara tries to get closer to Aleppo city.

    • Liberal guy

      He is a modern ottoman joker

  • Peter Jennings

    Maybe it was Allah? come to clean up the mess done in his name by Islamic pretenders from nato, and sidekicks.

    Or maybe it was karma? which happened to pick the right spot.
    Erdogan is thinking of one thing only…….his reelection. Terrorists in Idlib doing Erdogan’s bidding will soon be a thing of the past. So he is setting up in Libya to keep his terrorists and PR dept busy.

  • MH370

    its not an airplane or airstrike
    it was birdstrike…. birds of ababael

    • FlorianGeyer

      Are the the same flock of warrior birds that kill F35’s?

      If they are, Erdo is really in the shit, but that’s what happens when ones head is in the clouds and ones balls are in a vice.

    Totally beside the point, but the su-25 and the a-10 have to be the most admirable aircraft ever built.

  • Joe Doe

    SAA should reply very hard on Turkey military in Syria. SAA are war veterans, Turkey solders are juniors. SDF should also attack Turkey on different front lines. Turkey economy is weak. Therefore Turkey can’t fight for long. SYria has nothing to loose fight back Turkey, but Turkey can loose more. SAA hit Turkey hard!!

  • Dick Von Dast’Ard

    Unidentified aircraft, yet SF identifies the aircraft.

  • Arch Bungle

    Probably deliberately unmarked jets for plausible ambiguity.

    • Ivan Freely

      Physically unmarked? I doubt it. Those jets wouldn’t be flying so low to be identified from the ground. In all likelihood, the IFF / transponder / whatever-it’s-called was deactivated.

  • RichardD

    It’s a fluid situation with a lot of conflicting reports and questionable sources. The Turks are supporting terrorists and have been for the entire war. They have no legitimate justification for this. The extent to which they’ll intervene with their own forces to prevent the rout of their terrorists is unclear.

    Against the SAA, Hezbollah, Iranians, Palestinians and Russians armed with heavy weapons and air support. A Turkish escalation without air cover is a foolish course of action to pursue.

  • AM Hants

    Turkish moderates, mercenaries with Turkish support. How many are Turkish citizens? Does Erdogan want to relocate them to Turkey, when Syria gets all it’s territory back? How much of what he says is to keep the domestic audience sweet?

    Cannot wait for Syria to have complete control of the M4 and M5. Good luck Syria.
