BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:45 A.M.) – A massive Turkish military convoy entered the Idlib Governorate from the Hatay Province, tonight, opposition activists reported.

According to the Syrian opposition activists, the Turkish military convoy consisted of more than 300 vehicles, including tanks, MLRS launchers, and BMPs.

The Turkish military convoy reportedly entered Syria through the Kafr Losen Crossing; it was heading towards the rebel front-lines in the Idlib and Hama governorates.

Some opposition activists have claimed that the Turkish military was heading to the Idlib Governorate with manpads, which, if true, would mean that they are preparing to down any Syrian warplane flying over their positions.

Turkey appears to not be backing down from the Syrian government forces, despite the fact that the latter is backed by Ankara’s allies: Iran and Russia.

This is going to get real messy soon especially if and when America ,Britain and France poke their unwarranted and unwanted noses in.

Be happy that France+Germany have poked their noses in or the country would have felt to ISIS and Kurds, Yazidis and Shia minorities would had been genocided… They didn’t waited for the Russian intervention that started far later, hopefully.

Oh stfu, while obama’s coalition was, supposedly, downgrading isis, these terrorist where expanding their territory, numbers and power with all the arms drops thet got from the obama coalition. It was only when Russia intervened that isis, and all the other islamist terrorists supported by the evil coalition, which includes saudis and zionists, started to get their asses shot off. Stop with your proZionist c**p, alresdy!!!!

Oh yeah , right … Whatever you have been putting in your coffee , or tea , needs to stop .. Just another of your convoluted posts but I live in a free country so go ahead for all it’s worth.. All Germany has been doing is taking pictures for the Americans and I believe they are being totally honest and believe in what they are doing. Pity it doesn’t follow on through the rest of the so called coalition..

Don’t worry. Everybody who reads the history knows how every huge mess is ending – with the Russian flag poked in the capitol of the bully country. Believe me, this is not going to be exception…

Actually, it was the Soviet flag 😉 And actually, it’s not apparent to many, mostly due to many US MPs and MSM morons and also some idiots in eastern EU countries not having noticed cold war ended in 1991, but in fact, US, EU and Russia interests are the same and so are they at ideology level… They may seem to oppose, it’s not really the case Same thing about the creepy jihadists : they don’t oppose so much as many think, even between Shias and Sunni shithadists : al-Qaeda in Iraq, now better known as ISIS, even trained in… Read more »

Peter : since Trump already gave the green light to SDF to help SAA in Idlib/Afrin/al-Bab, it’d be wonderful would EU+USA fought terrorists together with the Russians… All this comedy opposing the east and the west is becoming ridiculous. We’re all in the same camp and those doing shït in Syria, Ira, Afgha, Somalia, etc, have us all in their sights!

Erdogan is playing very very dangerous game. He cannot get over with his support to the terrorists. His stubbornness will kill him soon. USA already wants him dead. Once Putin’s desire is Erdogan to be dead. That’s going to be his last day…

I think it’s the contrary! Putin already wants him dead since the 2nd Chechnya war, Trump still hasn’t decided while you forget the Chinese and the EU which both are military speaking twice+ as powerful as Russia and economically way much more. Erdogan will be lucky if he ends in ICP 4 stars prison in the Hague. The question is not if he has a target on his back, he already has. The question is when and how. If it was up to me, it’d had already been done and he wouldn’t be the only one on my list. For… Read more »

let’s hope your’e right; I too don’t think Putin can tolerate Erdolf for much longer, but that moron is capable of causing lots of damage while still in power.

Yes…as are those that continue to plaster lies everywhere. For instance, those that try to pass off Zionist BS for propaganda reasons. Everyone knows who and what they are, but they got to have that sheckle. Their ridiculous lies give them away. They have no honor or morality.

So the Turkish attempted conquest of Idlib is now out in the open and not being allowed to continue by subterfuge via their proxy jihadists. I suspect they may get intelligence and targeting help from the US military behind the scenes just so that the latter can stick it to the Russians. This is Erdogan’s neo-Ottoman aspirations make or break time. Fail in this, and with the Turkish economy tanking, would mean the end of Ergogan’s political career. I hope the Russian Air Force doesn’t back down in helping the Syrian Government rid Idlib of all the foreign backed jihadis

Was this the agreement with Russia and Syria in their meeting ? We all expect Russia to get rid also of these invader. Turkey will find only death and destruction before Syria army for sure.

Turkey is a NATO member and allied of USA, i fyou don ‘t keep in mind this, you will not be able to understand Turkey fake behavior. Russia is being crontrolled through S-400, Tukpineline, and nuclear power plant in Turkey. Are economical interests higher than moral principles ?

Maybe Assad should make a reasonable deal with SDF so SAA Hassakah garrison can join the fight in Islib. SDF might even join the attack on Idlib.
