US draws Ankara into war with Russia: Turkish generals are unhappy

The development of the situation in northern Syria, which could lead to a direct clash between Turkish units and the Russian contingent, is regarded by retired Turkish generals as an attempt by the United States to drag Ankara into a war with Russia.

The Bulgarian edition of the Bolgarian Military published material whose authors cite the opinion of former Turkish generals about Turkey’s participation in hostilities in Syria.

Thus, the former Admiral of the Turkish Navy, Turker Ertürk, believes that Ankara is unprofitable to work against the Syrian central government and bear the burden of the war that the West began.

According to the resigned Brigadier General Erdal Shener, Turkey today does not have a clearly formulated policy in relation to Syria, and the “security zones” that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is trying to establish randomly in the neighboring Arab Republic are “an instrument of influence on the regional policy imposed by the United States”.

Meanwhile, as a result of a missile attack by the Syrian army on a Turkish convoy in Idlib province, one vehicle was destroyed and eight Turkish soldiers were injured of varying severity.

In total, the losses of the Turkish army in Idlib from the beginning of 2020 are estimated at 20-30 people.

Meanwhile, Russia has strengthened the capabilities of its military contingent in Syria by sending the latest Tu-214R reconnaissance aircraft there.

    Nonsense from a retirement (was there a boy?). Turkey is one of the main initiators of the war in Syria, Turkey today is one of the main interests in the situation around Idlib, where the interests of Americans do not smell. Why pretend a clash of interests in northern Syria over the United States? Initially, it was clear that Turkey was resolving its interests in this region that were of a national and historical nature, and if we recall the 3,6 million Syrians in Turkey, then the interest of the Turks would not raise doubts.
