BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 P.M.) – Turkey has given two German-made Leopard tanks to the militant forces in northern Syria, the Russian publication Avia.Pro reported on Friday.

“Turkey has handed over to the Syrian terrorists at least two German Leopard tanks, which had already been spotted on the front lines in the Idlib province. Thus, the Turkish side actively supports terrorists opposing the Syrian government forces and regularly conducting attacks on the Russian military in this region of Syria,” the report said.

Ankara has not officially commented on the transfer of heavy tanks to the militant forces; however, a report last week also accused Turkey of giving these armored vehicles to the so-called “Syrian National Army” (SNA), who is currently fighting the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Germany has provided aid to the SDF troops in Syria, so the fact that these tanks are being used against them may not sit well with the government in Berlin.

El amigo de Putín es terrorista, pertenece a la Hermandad Musulmana, cuantas pruebas mas quiere el gobierno Ruso.
Si Erdogan sacara sus narices de Siria, hace tiempo se hubiera acabado con el terrorismo y el gobierno Sirio se centraría en recuperar su petroleo de EE.UU. y hacerle frente a la agresión Israelí.

Amusing point : the Muslim-Brotherhood is banned as a terrorist organisation in Russia while Putin befriends the ErDOG when AKP is nothing else than the Turkish branch of the Muslim-Brotherhood…
Is Putin becoming brain-dead too?

The buyer of German military hardware must sign an end user agreement.
That excludes the right for resale or give away. If true the Turk Sultan is badly neglecting to keep his agreements. BTW the US Emperor is notorious for breaking his end user agreements. Good that Merkel denied Turkey upgrades for these old (pre 1987) Leopards 2 A 4.

BTW. The Leopard 2 on the stock photo is a Leopard 2 A 5 or HIGHER. Its turret’s Iron Cross symbol proves it’s a German owned tank. 2A5+ can eat any Turk 2 A 4 raw and so can any Syrian T-90.
