DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:45 A.M.) – A high-ranking official from the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAYF) told Al-Masdar on Thursday night that their fighter jets did not bomb the Turkish Army in east Aleppo.

“No Syrian or Russian aircraft bombed the Turkish Army near Al-Bab on November 23rd – all reports claiming otherwise are lies,” the official confirmed to Al-Masdar on Thursday.

“Turkey is planning something in east Aleppo and using this alleged attack as a ploy to escalate the situation,” he added.

The Turkish regime accused the Syrian Air Force on Wednesday of carrying out an airstrike that killed 3 of their soldiers and wounded 10 others.

Prior to this alleged attack in east Aleppo, the Turkish Army shelled the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in northern Latakia, forcing them to halt their offensive against the Turkish-backed jihadists near the border.

I suspected this is a false flag, Turkey invaded northern Syria three months ago and have ground forces right up to positions of Dai’sh, YPG, SDF. Why would the SAF wait for three months before making a single air strike ? Doesn’t make sense. These Turks could have been killed anywhere in contact at anytime recently or more likely friendly fire from their own F-16.

They were killed by the avenging arm of Allah, what a question!
And Sheitan’s throne is in Bergama!

But in a “plomo o plata” way, he uses plomo (lead) and not plata (gold) to pay them…

NB : Sheitan’s throne in Bergama refers to St.John’s Apocalypse, not to Koran 😉
If some still don’t know me : I was totally ironic saying this, hey, I’m agnostic 😉

In the Apocalypse, the “Throne of Satan” referred to the pagan Temple of Apollo in Bergama.

Turkey’s sultan desperately seeks to draw in NATO before the US gets a declared non hawk for president.

Impossible this way : the operation being illegal under international law and Turkish territory not being under attack, they haven’t got the NATO umbrella if operating into Syria. There was even a NATO communiqué about it.

The Sultan will claim attack. For five years he transgresses international law. Compare A/RES/2625(XXV). Nobody cares.

The former chief of Turkish MIT is already speaking on medias about talks between Turkey and its allies (read NATO) on the possibility to deploy Patriot systems north of Aleppo… So I was quite right on my immediate comment yesterday, they are trying to get a defacto no fly zone the same way they established the moderate terrorist safe buffer zone with Turkey’s Euphrates Shield operation. It’s now to Russia to have its say.

IMHO he will get none. The Germans pulled their systems out.
German lawmakers did not get access to their troops. They are not likely to sent their systems to his adventures again. Who else has the will and can spare Patriot systems?
