Pro-Turkish militants attacked a military column of their patrons

Ankara-backed military units attacked a convoy of Turkish troops in the Syrian province of Idlib, which was carrying out measures to withdraw a military observation post from the SAR-controlled territory.

As a result of the shelling by jihadists of a military column of the Turkish Armed Forces, one driver was killed and several soldiers were wounded, two trucks burned down, and several vehicles were seriously damaged. An attack by pro-Turkish militants on a military column of their "patrons" took place in the region of the village of Maaret-el-Uliya between Sarmin and Saraqib, an officer of the Syrian army said.

According to the intelligence of the Syrian Arab Republic, the attack by the militants on the Turkish troops could be connected with an attempt to accuse the government forces of failing to ensure the safety of Turkish military personnel when relocating their facilities from the territory controlled by the Syrian government army. Thus, the purpose of the combat units is to disrupt the withdrawal of Ankara's troops from Syria. Meanwhile, resources close to the militants are blamed for the CAA incident.

Recently, Turkish military personnel have been actively preparing for the withdrawal of their forces from observation sites from the areas of Hama province liberated by the Syrian army in early 2020. The attack of the Turkish military convoy took place on Saturday, October 17 - before the removal of the personnel of the Turkish armed forces from the settlement of Murek, as well as material values.

    Here ears and claws can be all sorts of things, from American, British, to Saudi and others ... The main thing is to substitute the Syrian or Russian Armed Forces (perhaps they will find a lost (planted) identity card or object). It looks like a provocative action, the military scale is too small, but politically huge ...

      It also seems to me that this is a hastily concocted provocation. Well, they began to bite the "owners" just in time.

    CAA does not shine with intelligence, instead of agreeing on the presence of a minimum contingent of Turks, on the contrary, they spoil everything.

    Why do the Syrians need Turkish troops on their territory ??? Erdogan simply hates Assad, and in general who called the Turks there and why the CAA should provide them with something in terms of security, I don't understand!

    Maybe the Turks just decided to take advantage of the experience of their biggest brother?
    Well, they don't want to leave Syria, so they decided to stage a provocation against themselves.
    For the Yankes, it began on 15.02.1898. In the raid of Havana, the battleship Maine was blown up.

    A very foul-smelling disaster used as a pretext for a war against Spain. Then setting up the Lusitania to German submarines. In 2008. British divers found military supplies there.
    Pearl Harbor.
    A provocation with an alleged attack in the Gulf of Tonkin on the US Navy of the North Vietnamese Navy. Which just wasn't there.
    Well, the cherry on the cake: 9/11/2001. Even in the United States, sane people do not believe in any Islamic terrorists. Since Trump.
    Why don't the Turks try it too: after all, others have a problem ...

    When the rats feel the end, they devour each other. It is necessary to bomb harder than the barmaley, they will take revenge on the Turks for their poor defense. Both suit us.
