    If the Syrians are "masters" of their territory, then why haven't they done away with ISIS and amers over the years? And if not the owners, then which one should have shot, albeit a temporary one, but an ally of his patron? Business? Well, get it and sign it.

    About 40 points became our goals. As a result of the fire, 30-35 Syrians were neutralized.

    Something is not clear, the Russian generals received a warning about the strike, but the Syrians did not.

    As a result of the shelling, four were killed and nine Turkish soldiers were injured.

    In the same way, it is not clear why Russian generals did not warn the Turkish army that the Syrians were preparing shelling.
    Are strategists and tacticians playing with a damaged phone, a giveaway, or are they waiting for the next "magic" pendel?

    Turkish F-16 ...

    Here is where to take and "ground" a couple, but as soon as

    Ankara quickly shifted from promises of revenge to business ...

    The Syrian-Russian team, it seems, suddenly lost the harness again and now somehow does not harness for a long time, although, it would seem, they should only wait for a convenient moment. recourse

    Russian ZRPK "Shell" repelled a massive missile strike by Turkey on Syria.

    Attempts by the Turkish military to launch an unexpected attack against the Syrian government forces in the north-eastern part of the Arab Republic ended in a catastrophic failure for the Turkish military command. Thanks to the Pantsir-S anti-aircraft defense systems located along the front line, most of the Turkish military missiles launched were brought down on approach, and therefore, the dead and injured were avoided.

    According to various sources, the air assets of the Syrian army, and it is mainly about the Pantsir-S air defense missile systems, previously delivered to the Arab Republic by the Russian military, shot down about 40 Turkish missiles aimed at the main position areas of the Syrian military. Part of the missiles nevertheless caused some damage to the Syrian army, however, as local sources note, the Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar’s data that it was about 76 dead Syrian military are absolutely fake.

    “Turkey can only lie about its achievements. There are several victims and material damage, but the rest is fake, ”one of the Syrian troops said.
