BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:25 P.M.) – The Turkish military carried out a massive attack against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) last night, as their drones and ground forces launched several strikes on the government’s positions in the Latakia, Hama, Aleppo, and Idlib governorates.

According to a military source in the Aleppo Governorate, the Turkish military heavily targeted their armored and technical vehicles, causing significant destruction to their northwestern Syria arsenal.

In addition to attacks on the Syrian Army’s vehicles, Turkish military also targeted the government’s installations, inflicting heavy damage to these sites.

The attacks by the Turkish military were said to have been carried out in retaliation for the airstrike that killed dozens of Turkish soldiers in the southern countryside of the Idlib Governorate on Thursday.

Following the airstrike, which the Turkish regime accused the Syrian military of carrying out, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his command staff entered into a six-hour-long meeting, in which it is believed that they planned and watched the attack against the SAA in northwestern Syria.

Time for totally obliterating Turkish troops in Syria as a retaliation.

See above. That would need heavy bombers to destroy Turkish convoys and bases. These are dangerous times. If only the SAA had left the Turks alone they could have bought more time to finish off the Ghaab Plains offensive and link up with the units in Latakia. Too late now,the SAA is being hammered.

Not just in Syria. This planet will be a much better place to live without that vermin. No one would cry if these pests were exterminated.

Yes. And any Russians who get in the way will also be targeted. This is escalation in action. I’m waiting for the Russian heavy bombers to be deployed, but they’ll need a strong fighter escort.

There is no need for any bombers.. SAA has plenty of SS-21 ( OTR-21 Tochka) short range ballistic missiles. SS-21 Scarab missiles have been used in Yemeni war and they created considerable havoc, even in the hands of an outgunned rebel army. I am sure SAA have plenty of Smerch 30 as well.

yeah another keyboard warrior never stepped a foot on the battle field but all of a sudden is a expert. The Turks will get there just desert shortly just like the previous day. Also because they fear Russians the dear not but a single fighter in the air. 97% of Syria is liberated already just in case you weren’t keep up with the latest news..

Why didn’t Putin order the Russian Military to shoot down the Turkish drones invading Syrian airspace? Obviously Putin gave his consent to Erdogan.
