On February 26, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) targeted a Turkish military convoy that was moving in southern Idlib with a barrage of rockets.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said that the convoy was struck while moving between the towns of Kansafra and al-Bara. According to the monitoring group, at least one Turkish military vehicle was destroyed in the rocket strike.

“No information about casualties has been received, thus far,” the SOHR’s report reads.

The attack on the Turkish convoy coincided with a series of intense Syrian and Russian airstrikes on the southern Idlib countryside.

The SAA is now advancing in southern Idlib. In the last 48 hours, the army liberated dozens of towns and villages in the region, including Kafr Nubul, a stronghold of Turkish-backed militants.

The Turkish Ministry of National Defense has not yet commented on the rocket strike. While the ministry acknowledges any casualties within 24 hours, losses in equipment are ignored in most cases.

    Fall of the Sochi Agreement will mean the gates will open to an even more Apocalyptic conflagration, dragging in other regional and global powers. Historic omens foretell another world war, wherever it starts.

      If that forecast becomes reality, so be it.

      I am tired of the Zio-Mafia domination of the West and all the perversions and wars of choice that come with it.

      Out of the rubble of the US, Israel and other nations daft enough to get involved, will immerge a pogrom, I suspect.

    Turks are very stubborn and require many harsh lessens before a normal mindset is aquired.

    breaking: hts captured salhiya bajariz and the town of afis near saraqib…. if the saa and allies don’t get serious about this sh*t the terrorists will cut the m5 or even worse capture saraqib …. the allies need to play all their cards in order to defend saraqib at all costs i don’t care if they have to kill every fuc*ing turk in idlib just keep the stategic town ffs !!! ….and please i don’t want to hear no more tactical retreat excuse i’ve seen that sh*t since nayrab and now we’re fighting in the outskirsts of saraqib !

  • Xoli Xoli

    This tactical retreat is bullshit. Why should SAA declare m4 and m5 roads free and list strategic town.Attacking convoy and only destroyed one.While terrorists destroys easily 5 six or 11.Attack Turkey convoys and artillery. Destroy Turkey bases.Why should Turkey settle in Syria bases.Inflicted heavy losses or completely destroy Turkey convoys.

  • Cheryl Brandon

    SAA and Russians pilots need to do more bombings of terrroists convoys.

  • Jaime

    Russia should take its gloves off. Rain Kalibr and the full panoplia on Turkish troops. When the terrorists see that, they will run. If Al Nusra et. al. are so daring, it is because they feel the Turkeys cannot be touched. Make a pire of a full Turkish column and we’ll see the reaction of their terrorists partners. The best part will be Erdogan’s howls.
