AMN: Russia Sends Strong Signal to Turkey-Backed Militants


Russia's Aerospace Forces launched a series of airstrikes, attacking Ankara-backed militants and their jihadist allies in Latakia and Aleppo provinces with aircraft and drones. The AMN agency writes about the unequivocal signal from Russia to the pro-Turkish military units.


Russian warplanes took off from Khmeimim air base near the coastal town of Jable, made a short flight to the mountainous town of Kabani in northeastern Latakia, and dealt a powerful blow against foreign-led jihadists.

Located in the strategically convenient Jebel Al-Akrad region of Latakia, Kabani has become the headquarters of the Islamic Party of Turkestan and its friendly forces in this mountainous region near the administrative border of Idlib province. After strikes on Kabani, Russian UAVs attacked oil tankers of pro-Turkish Islamists in Aleppo governorate - the militants used these oil tankers to smuggle oil products from the SAR.

The Russian Aerospace Forces strikes were likely in response to militant attacks on Russian troops in the eastern region of Idlib earlier this month, in which three Russian soldiers were injured. The Center for the Reconciliation of the Warring Parties blamed pro-Turkish forces for these acts.

    it is necessary to read that not in response - but having received information and working ahead of the curve, the Aerospace Forces thwarted an attack about Turkish militants, hammering them into mountainous terrain with FABs

      ... having received information and being proactive ...

      The dog again threw himself on the stick, right after Pavlov.
      This means that the circulation of dough is still more important than some kind of human lives, otherwise the civilized mind would have long been able to influence not the "stick", but who needs it. However, a crow will not peck out a crow's eyes.

    Sorry for Gury. Their work time has obviously increased.

    I will not understand at all: if the strikes of the Russian Aerospace Forces are being delivered, and so dashingly, "against the militants supported by Turkey," then why is the same Russia arming hostile Turkey. As recently as last August, an agreement was reached between these countries to supply Ankara with a second set of S-400s.

    Again about the unequivocal signal from Russia,
    It's not clear whether the Russian leadership is having any conversations with the militants? Gang. formations must be destroyed!
    Or is it just idle chatter again?
