DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:20 A.M.) – The Turkish Army intervened in the Latakia Governorate on Wednesday when the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a surprise offensive against the jihadist rebels of Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front).

According to a military source in the Latakia Governorate, the Turkish Army fired several artillery shells towards the town of Nawara, where the Syrian Arab Army and National Defense Forces (NDF) were positioned on Wednesday.

While no casualties were reported, the heavy shelling forced the Syrian Arab Army and their allies to withdraw their assault in northern Latakia.

This latest attack by the Turkish Army comes just hours after their air force bombed the Kurdish-led “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF) in the northern Aleppo countryside.

Scum. I hope it costs them the land they stole (Iskenderun, Cilicia and the lands just north of Syria).

It takes courage to face and kill the enemy on the battlefield. And that value comes from not being afraid to die. Because how the h**l will you kill the b*****d enemy if all the time you are retreating and fleeing the battlefield to save your life? Unless you’re willing to even die trying, you’ll never fight hard enough to kill even the b*****d’s dog in your cowardice my friend.

Nothing to do with courage/cowardice. They decided not to fight the Turks.
As things look now Syria/Russia will have to fight Turkey but at the right time.

How sad with so many allies and supports both air and land is easy for the SAA to withdraw and flee without even trying to risk his life and fight for his own sovereignty and dignity. I find it very embarrassing.
It would be better to read that ”despite the Turkish heavy shelling, the SAA bravely fought and almost all died in defending their homeland from the Turkish invasion”.

Actually not really : it’s more to be viewed on the economical POV! That’s even why NATO has switched to 5.56mm caliber and Russia to 5.45mm while China has gone 5.8mm and all use FMJ bullets : These rounds are made to injure : as long as they don’t touch a vital zone, you’re not likely to end in a body-bag! Hey, an injured person cost is much much higher than a dead one : a day in urgencies can cost +80k€! A dead one? A hole in the ground with a bulldozer, case closed! Fighters? For their Yemen campaign,… Read more »

Unwise to resist where the Sultans’s soldiers can safely shell from behind their NATO protected borders. Sweep the floor with them and their mercs in the Euphrates Shield region. Preferably by downing a plane. As “Daeshbags Sux” pointed out, war is economics and about reducing the enemy’s trained manpower.

IMHO God is with the best cannons. Show the Sultan the quality of the air defense. The air arms cost real money and it reduces the number of pilots. He is short on pilots already. Plus pilots’ training is costly and time consuming.
