Early on July 16, unidentified warplanes conducted at least 3 airstrikes on the Turkish-occupied town of al-Bab in the Syrian province of Aleppo. The strikes destroyed a large building in the town center and led to multiple casualties. Pro-Turkish sources claim that there were civilian casualties only and that the United States or Russia were behind the strikes.

A few hours later, the Turkish Interior Ministry reported that a reconnaissance plane crashed in the Turkish province of Van, near the Iraqi border. 7 personnel, including 2 pilots, on board died in the incident that happened on Mount Artos.

Earlier this year, a series of airstrikes by unidentified aircraft killed several prominent terrorists, including well-known ISIS members, that were freely hiding in the Turkish-controlled part of Syria. The July 16 strikes could be a part of this campaign.

In response to all these developments, Turkish sources cried foul about the killed terrorists and Turkish-led forces were conducting strikes on positions of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces on the contact line in northern Syria. The Turkish Army reacted in a similar way to the July 16 events by shelling SDF positions near Tell Rifat.

On July 15 afternoon, a weapon depot of the SDF exploded in the province of al-Hasakah. The explosion that erupted next to the residential area of the al-Asrafiyah district reportedly killed or injured several SDF members.

Last month, an ammo depot of the SDF in in the vicinity of the town of Rmelan in the same province also exploded. Some sources claimed that Turkish warplanes destroyed it. However, the SDF didn’t provide any information on the incident.

On top of this, a series of explosions rocked the SDF-controlled city of Raqqa on July 14. Three IEDs exploded inside an abandoned building in the al-Tub al-Hadith district in the city center and the fourth one in the al-Jazzrah district in the western part of the city. There have been no reports on casualties and no group has claimed responsibility for the attack. Nonetheless, the main suspect is ISIS cells, which recently increased activity on the eastern bank of the Euphrates.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Army artillery struck positions of Turkish proxies near the villages of al-Bara, Fatterah, Sufuhon and Fleifel in southern Idlib. The tensions in the region heightened since the car bomb attack on a joint Russian-Turkish patrol on July 14. Pro-militant sources reported multiple artillery and air strikes on their positions claiming that the Russians and Assad regime are once again opressing peaceful al-Qaeda members.

        I can get it approved. I’m willing to travel off planet with a 6 member UNSC P5/6 English speaking, non Jew, team. Consisting of myself and 5 people with head of state signed credentials, 1 from each of the 5 UNSC P5 governments. To work on our transition into becoming an ET race and civilization ourselves.

        They are usually night time bandits.
        I got up in campsite for a morning snack before a hike, and found my small cooler ripped open, regardless of the push latch on the side. Evidence left where many claw marks on cooler and many small footprints around it. :)

          Better than a bear. I’ve had two bear encounters and 1 wolf encounter at less than 100 feet. All fortunately uneventful.

          A dashcam is on my buy list. The night that I found the bigfoot trackline last spring on a snow covered forest road at elevation. At a lower elevation earlier that night about 20 miles into the forest on the way in. I came around a corner in the rental Subaru Crosstrek at about 20 to 25 mph and encountered the backend of an approximately 300 pound brown fur covered lifeform running down the side of the road at speed. On what looked like all fours, though I couldn’t see the legs or head, that veered off into the forest before I got to it. About 75 feet in front of the SUV.

          It was either a very fast brown bear, where we don’t have them. Or something unexplained. Like a bigfoot on all fours.

    Just keep on bombing peaceful Al Qaeda members. With Tulipans 240mm mortars, for start. With kab at least 100kg. And then increase the size.
    Great job SAA.

      reported is that US pilots are poorly trained, largely trained in simulators they poorly respond to anomalous weather conditions, mechanical difficulties

        And F-35 “Lightning 2” can’t stand lightnings at all among other things.
        All rigged military reports from military industrial complex to U.S. army are coming to the surface and manifesting themselves.
