BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:40 A.M.) – The Turkish military has taken up positions near the key town of Tal Al-‘Eis in the southern countryside of Aleppo recently.

As a result of this move, the Turkish military has subsequently blocked the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) route to the besieged Shiite towns of Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya in the Idlib Governorate.

The Syrian Army was steadily advancing in the southern countryside of Aleppo before the Turkish military sent a dozen armored vehicles towards Point 4 near Tal Al-‘Eis.

It is still not clear whether or not Russia had prior knowledge about the Turkish Army’s motives, but this move by the latter will surely infuriate the Syrian Army, as they were planning to lift the siege on the two Shiite towns.

Weird positioning by Turkey. Turkish ml,itary with consorting HTA and TFSA and IS in the middle between SDF in the north and SAA in the south. The way to resolve this to everybodies happiness but turks and walking beards, is to extent the SAA airmissile envelope to Afrin, denying TuAF entry over Afrin. At that point the TSK and walking beards in Afrin will lose their fight and SDF can turn on TSK andtheir mercenaries from the north while SAA can do the same from the south. Endresult, no more HTS/TFSA and turkish army in Syria anymore, except for the… Read more »
