BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 P.M.) – The Turkish presidential spokesman, Ibrahim Kalin, said on Tuesday that Ankara has asked Moscow to push for a ceasefire in Syria’s Idlib.

Kalin indicated that Russia has assured the Turkish delegation, which visited Moscow recently, that it will make an effort to stop the attacks in Idlib .

“Turkey has asked Russia for a ceasefire in Idlib,” Kalin said during a press conference on Tuesday, adding that “Russia has assured the Turkish delegation that it will make an effort to stop the attacks in Idlib within 24 hours.”

In a related context, Ankara called on the Libyan National Army, led by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, to stop its attacks on the capital, Tripoli, pointing to the possibility of issuing a memorandum from parliament to send Turkish forces to support the Libyan reconciliation government, if necessary.

“Hafter must stop his attacks, otherwise the situation will escalate in different regions in Libya. We will continue our support for the Libyan Government of National Accord,” he said.

“We may need to issue a memo from parliament to send military forces to Libya as needed,” Kalin added.

“Turquía ha pedido a Rusia un alto el fuego en Idlib”, espero que Rusia como de costumbre no complazca al gobierno Turco y frustre el avance del glorioso ejercito Sirio.
¡NO MAS ALTO AL FUEGO!
¡VIVA EL EJERCITO SIRIO!
¡HASTA LA VICTORIA SIEMPRE!

If Turkey interferes in Libya, UAE and Egypt should consider sending Mirage-2000 with Libyan roundels : M-2000 is better than F-16 for air superiority and Exocet is the #1 shipwrecker missile on market. Add Egyptian Rafales armed with Thales’ laser guided 70mm rockets to the equation and welcome to a nightmare for vehicles.

Merry XMS mon ami, Turkey is nr 3 or so in drones. Erdolf’s son in law is a great inverntor. And hos father in law has a big mouth. As Erdolf put it, they follow on the tracks of Atatürk in Libya. Sorry the 1912 war saw Kemal Pasha not as a victor.

Turkey is obviously a loose cannon.
And Sultan Erdoğan’s sympathies are with the jihadist nutters.
No wonder he wants a cease-fire in Idlib, when the jihadis are on the run.

Forget it. Russians should know that Turki will bog them down in Syria if Russia will listen to Turki. Russia should just concentrate on the job of eliminating the Jihadis from Idlib and forget Turki and show them the big long middle finger. The reason Turki is calling for new cease fire is mainly because its dogs are being slaughtered by SAA in Idlib and else where. Turki is now scared shiet that these Dogs will now escape into Turki to avoid being crushed by SAA.

Turkey(NATO) must go back home from Idlib, Afrin y north-Euphrates river, and stop asking Russia for help to justify its invasion to Syria and its supoort to terrorists at Idlib.
I really hope Putin stop supporting Turkey (NATO) and its terrorists in Syrian.
