BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) resumed their campaign over the northwestern region of Syria, a source told Al-Masdar News.

According to the source, the Syrian Air Force carried out several airstrikes over the Hama and Idlib governorates on Tuesday afternoon, hitting a number of jihadist targets in the process.

The source added that the Syrian Air Force and their Russian partners made the decision to halt their airstrikes over northwestern Syria as part of an attempt to win favor with Turkey.

Turkey has blamed the Syrian military for the flare-up violence in northwestern Syria. In turn, the Syrian government has accused Turkey of protecting the jihadist groups.

Turkey blaming the SAA for the flare-up of violence, that’s laughable, what’s next, are rapists going to start blaming their victims too. But the Syrian government accusing Turkey of supporting the Jihadist isn’t a joke though, Erdogan does supply the rebels with weapons and equipment, and then the rebels use that equipment to try and kill SAA and Russian soldiers, that’s not funny at all. I wonder what the Russian and SAA soldiers think when they see Putin cooperating with the man who actually supplies the rebels with the weapons they use to try and kill Russian and SAA soldiers,… Read more »

Erdogan culpando a los militares Sirios en un país donde invadió y ademas financia directamente a los terroristas se hace la victima, el gobierno Sirio está en obligación de defender la soberanía a la población Sirio de los embates de los mercenarios.

Israel has the same problem : Palestinian terrorists also pose as the victims while they’re the bad guys… And their sponsors are the same ones who sponsor the shithadists in Syria…

Yep,totally true,as Israeli Shin Beit sponsored the creation and rise of Hamas to create a rift with secular and progressive PLO,and which happens to be the same idelogical branch as Turskish backed Islamist NLF currently allied of circumstance with HTS in Idlib that Israel also supported along with ISIS in the Golan until recently. Oh,and the bad guys are the occupiers and invaders,not the occupied exercizing their universally recognized right to defend their right to live free.
