BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 P.M.) – The Russian military quickly intervened to prevent a deadly confrontation between the Syrian and Turkish forces on Saturday,

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) first opened fire on the militant-held Sheir Magher area after the Turkish-backed rebels fired several artillery shells towards their positions in northwestern Hama. The Sheir Magher area is where the Turkish observation post is located in northwestern Hama.

Following the Syrian Army attack on the Turkish observation post area, the Russian Armed Forces quickly intervened to prevent further hostilities, a source near the front-lines told Al-Masdar News.

The source added that the Russian Armed Forces are currently present in the northwestern countryside of Hama, with many of their soldiers deployed to the towns of Mhardeh and Al-Sqaylabiyeh.

Earlier this week, the Syrian Army killed a Turkish soldier in the Sheir Magher area after the former was responding to an attack by the militants in northwestern Hama.

The Turkish Armed Forces later retaliated by shelling the Syrian Army checkpoints near Sheir Magher – no casualties were reported.

Good and yes, but Russia must allow Syria to carry out a full offensive on Idlib, and to get rid of terrorists and Turkish.

Russia has not yet decided what it wants. It wants to free the region or want turkey in Syria ???What does “security zone” mean in Idlib? We do not understand this. Security zone for whom? Why? Because this is what Turkey wants? Turkey has no jobs there. Turkey has entered a foreign country illegally and without any right.???

As usual Russia prevents Syria from liberating its own land from hostile foreign occupation powers like Turkey, which it must be stressed, was the country that started the foreign aggression and invasion of Syria back in 2011. Let’s not forget that it was Russia which got Turkey to invade Syria as it was Russia which gave the US a legal cover to continue occupying Syria and stripping Syria of 1/3 of its land and 80% of Syria’s oil and gas resources to appease Trump’s greed for oil.

Russia is not there to support Dictator Assad but to test demonstrate & sell Advanced weapons to turkey saudia and other gulf states.

Its just matter of time, Turkish forces will start killing Assadis in holesale numbers with Advanced Russian weapons.

Syrian Arab Army has annihilated almost all of the terrorist groups including Daesh till 2018 and still going on strong. Turki military hasn’t been battle tested at all. Just having heavy weapons & military hardware doesn’t mean any thing. Its like college kids showing off shining bikes. SAA are seasoned fighters and have many victories to showcase. They have better strategy & leadership. Turki is like Coke All Fizz & Gas inside till it is opened and keep it for some time & it will become stale.
