Due to the complication of the situation in Idlib, the Minister of Defense of the Republic Hulusi Akar took command of the operation of the Turkish troops. The decision was made during a meeting on security with the participation of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, heads of security agencies and the Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova cited Ankara’s failure to comply with Russian-Turkish agreements as the main reason for the deterioration of the stop in northern Syria, including Turkey’s securing a regime of silence from terrorist groups controlled by it, which have been entrenched in Idlib and receiving wide support from Ankara.

    Part of the video is like a computer game. And the losses are too fantastic. And I doubt that UAVs fly and take off so freely. Breschut!

    Step by step, the local conflict is gaining scale. But so far potential adversaries are not ready for its globalization. In Turkey, there is no unity of the nation, the army is weakened by repression, the country is changing the secular guidelines laid by Ataturk into Islamic patterns. The economy is not doing well. In foreign policy, except for tiny Azerbaijan, which cannot be taken seriously, there are no allies. With such introductory statements, it is possible to practice on "cats", but it is unlikely to talk about a conflict with Israel or Russia. Russia and Israel have no time for war either. In Israel, permanent elections are an internal political crisis. Without his permission, it is hardly timely to go to war. The Russian Federation has a mouthful of worries: spending on the Crimea, sanctions, reform and rearmament of the army, energy prices, the same Syria, changes in the Constitution, Ukraine and beyond. Not before the war. In the states - elections, in Europe - a mess, China - generally found itself in an unenviable position due to losses from the coronavirus. Iran is even more problematic: internal instability, the crisis of the Ayatollah regime, conflict with the United States and Europe, sanctions. So there is no one to fight. This is on the one hand. On the other hand, the tension in Syria and the risk of a collision between geo-players are increasing. There must be a way out that suits everyone. I think this could be the division of Syria and the formation of a Kurdish state.

    - There is no real connection to the terrain and there are repetitions ... and the fire is very, almost perfectly accurate ... - And the "top view" armored vehicles do not match the silhouette of our Russian tanks ... - T-54; T-55; T-72 and other old stuff, on which the Syrians fight ... - But some moments look real enough ...
    - But one thing is clear ... - if the Turks really inflicted such losses on the Asad’s SAA, then the Syrians would have long since abandoned the front and would have fled to wherever ...
    - But nonetheless; as personally I have said many times ..:
    - Russia needs a powerful armored group in Syria; several aviation regiments; an extensive network of military infrastructure (military depots, arsenals, fuel and lubricant depots, assembly and repair shops and mini factories for the production and timing of military and construction equipment; a powerful air defense system with all the attributes of satellite communications and modern means of tracking and coding information, etc. ..
    - This should have been created while there were still "warm relations" with Erdogan ... - So to carry and deliver all this by ships through the open straits ... - In a few years Russia could build a whole region in Syria and expand ... - But time wasted in vain ... - And now Russia has remained in Syria "with a bare torso" ... practically ... - with a weak, few military personnel and a poorly defended base Khmeimim ...
    - This is how the "valiant Syrian warriors" will run away - so again our militants will have to stop and neutralize urgently ... - And what ??? - Only again with Russian heroism ...

    I have never seen such frames. Everything is very serious, just like kittens.
