BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:53 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army or allied paramilitary groups or both have reportedly started shelling the freshly established positions of Turkish forces in the southern countryside of Aleppo province according to both opposition and pro-government sources.

Opposition sources says that Syrian Army and allied Iranian-linked paramilitary groups have unleashed artillery fire onto recently established positions of the Turkish Army in the strategic Al-Eis area of southern Aleppo province.

Pro-government sources report that shelling of Turkish military positions has taken place – even claiming wounded among Turkish ranks – but do not specify whether or not the Syrian Army or allied militias or both are responsible for the attacks.

What is known is that non-Syrian Army pro-government units based opposite the Al-Eis area are mostly Iranian-linked or Iranian (proper) forces.

On a final note, Turkish Army artillery has apparently responded to the attacks with a rocket artillery salvo against government positions around the town of Shugheydilah.

Updates to follow.

RuAF will bomb the medieval Turkass goat molesters back north, according to Turk-Russian agreement they were not supposed to go south. Standard Russian way to “remind” Erdogan to stay the course, “or else”..

The problem for Russia is that Turkey controls the exit from the Black Sea supply route and only a nuclear attack on Turkey could quickly clear the route. IF that Pandoras Box was opened would NATO get involved ?

This war is becoming more and more convoluted by the day. Reminds
me a little of those African political parties. Two leaders of different parties would join together making a 3rd party just in case they lost with their own . Whatever happens there is going to be no stability in this country for decades to come which I am sure is the objective of the hands behind all of this.

That was a lot of interesting photos Al. The one that interested me the most was of the tanker truck with all the brand new ATGM’s.

Turkey has anti-Aircraft missile systems in Syria with which it shot down the SU25.

If you just take a look at the Su-25 hit video, it looks like the ManPADS narrative is total BS! No rocket engine smoke, not even light from the engine!
Just look at Stinger and Igla and also… Their effects on aircraft!

Watch the damages on airframes too…
So, why entertaining this? Well, t*t for tat crapaganda : US wrongly accuse Russia to cover up the use of chemical weapons, so Russia accuses Yanks of proliferating missiles in the hands of terrorists…

Good observation. This makes thing much much interesting. maybe Turkey again is the responsible of shutting down another Russia plane, we can not discard this hypothesis.

This type of attack must continue until Turkish go home.
