The Syrian Army has allegedly lost over 2,500 troops as well as dozens of tanks and armored vehicles in numerous Turkish strikes, but this is “just the beginning,” as Turkey hasn’t yet shown its “true strength,” Erdogan warned.

“We are just beginning to show our true strength to those who see our sensitivity as [the unwillingness] to shed blood, to hurt or [make someone] suffer, or as weakness and timidity,” the Turkish president told members of his AK Party on Monday. “The human and equipment losses of the [Syrian] regime are just the beginning,” Erdogan said.

Backing up his threat, Erdogan cited heavy losses ostensibly inflicted on the advancing Syrian government troops. He said Damascus has lost 2,557 soldiers and militia members, 135 tanks as well as dozens of cannons, multiple launch rocket systems, and pickup-mounted anti-aircraft guns.

While threatening Damascus with further attacks, Erdogan made an appeal to Moscow and Tehran, which have been supporting President Bashar Assad in his fight against terrorism. “I call once again to Russia and Iran,” the Turkish leader said. “We have no problem with you. We are struggling to solve the humanitarian crisis caused by millions of people heading to our country from Syria, and to ensure the security of our lands.”

Syria has recently closed its airspace over the northwest of the country, including Idlib province, declaring any intruding aircraft an enemy target. Russia’s Reconciliation Center for Syria warned that its air defenses can no longer guarantee the safety of any Turkish aircraft under the circumstances.

Let’s hope you’re right, thus, even if he’s obviously telling lies, do not underestimate the Turdish military : they have a pretty big and powerful army, and even if the economy is not going as well as it used to, it’s still a G20 country…
Means are needed to make the operation unsustainable and a gigantic blunder…

Lies lies lies. To be successful in politics one must be good at lying whilst looking at you straight faced and with direct eye contact. Politicians like Erdogan, Trump, Netenyahu, Macron, Johnson and company have that part down pat and can perform it without even battering an eyelid.

I was making a point about specifically erdogan and politicians who is featured in this article. No where in the article does it specifically feature or mention an individual nor does it specifically feature or mention anything about religion, actors, lawyers, journalists or actors. If this article was about religious people, military, lawyers, journalists and actors I would have made my comment appropriate to that. So why bother with your stupid comment? Are you retarded?

Had you red my posts, you’d know this for years now!
I even wondered many times about why the Syrian state was so obsessive about 1200km² of Golan Heights they deserved to lose as they had been the aggressor and at the same time saying nothing about the full Antioch province stolen by Turkey to the Syrian Mandate in 1939… Moreover, Golan Heights were part of the British Mandate for Jewish-Palestine, not of the French Mandate for Syria.
