Two Turkish Soldiers Killed, Others Injured In Syrian Airstrike On Greater Idlib

Donate

Turkey’s Ministry of National Defense announced on February 26 that two Turkish service members were killed and two others were injured in a Syrian airstrike on the so-called Greater Idlib region.

In an official statement, the Turkish Ministry of National Defense claimed that over a hundred Syrian Arab Army (SAA) personnel were “neutralized” in response to the deadly airstrike. These claims are usually extremely exaggerated.

The ministry was apparently forced to acknowledge the new casualties. The ministry’s announcement was made only after the release of several reports in the Turkish media revealing the incident.

The two slain service members were identified as Sargent Enes Baykus from Samsun and Corporal Sukru Elibol from Kahramanmaras.


Last week, a Syrian strike on the southern Idlib countryside claimed the lives two Turkish service members and injured five others.

The Turkish military deployed hundreds of troops in Greater Idlib over the last few months to support the remaining militants in the region. As a result of the Turkish support, the militants launched several large attacks on SAA positions in southern Idlib.

With the killing of two new soldiers, the number of Turkish service members killed in Greater Idlib so far has risen to 18. The number will likely rise in the upcoming few days, if the Turkish military continue its support for the militants in the Syrian region.

      These ill-trained poor Turkey peasants are are dying for the coward Erdogan’s ( since I assume you are a lady, I will not use more robust language) pipe dream. Turkey, appropriately named, is one of the most corrupt failed states where the rich and upper middle classes don’t let their brats conscripted. 99% of Turkish army today are religious peasants who are easily manipulated by the Wahhabist AKP and its neo-Ottoman delusions. Turkeys have zero chance of achieving anything in the Syrian Arab Republic based on their disastrous history. Only option is to go back and stop funding terrorism and respect the government and sovereignty of a good neighbor.

      • Larisa

        You’re exactly right

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Thank you, your comment was succinct and hit the crux of the matter, which is the Turkeys illegally invading a peaceful neighbor that has gone out of its way to be get along with an uncivilized bully like Turkey which has problems with each and every one of its neighbors from Armenia to Greece. The Turkeys have no business being in Syria as this in not 1920 and the dying Ottoman empire trying to hang on to any vestige of an empire, and even that failed as the Brits riled up the Arabs.

        Based on my limited knowledge of war, I am really worried for SAA especially after loosing the Saraqib, the key hub in M5 and M4 highways. What is the outlook for SAA and allies? Is it possible to overran the Turks and Jihadists in the coming days? How does SAA deal with Turkish artillery

        • Wahid Algiers

          In about 20 to 30 hours special and elite syrian forces will arrive from the south to crack down this last uprising of terrorists before Idlib city will be on focus and agenda.

    …So mr Putin…these are your friends that you are planning to build a nuclear plant for…
    Will Putin wake up and smell the coffee …?

    There’s a saying in Greece ”show me your friend and I can tell everything there is to know about you”…
    In other words the friends you make must have same qualities and attributes such as the ones you yourself have…

    Is that the best you can do Russia ? Be friends with Turkey ?

      Vexates the holy ghost,they can’t,you can’t,I can’t.

      Athens is shamed letting a coward like tsipras with no intention to bring back the drachma, then pyatt turn greece on the sly to orthodox and heterosexual traitors,(unless Trump is doing as god expects of him to do)your guess,good as mine I suspect.

      However pyatt is deep state/cia/bidens foddler and enemy to erdogan too (decoup) who is clearing civilians from teorrists,atleast,which gives no room for lamestream to frame russians.

      Of vexation,beckons in question in reproach,are you for greece or cias? I demand no answer,

      although I’ll defend who earn’t my trust,as I were fooled by fools in my past,particularly feminists:

      Know thy foes,identify the opponent and gather true(repent) friends around,see how it pans out,

      From what’s going down,there will be no ww3,certainly never greece against orthodoxy ,ever!
      Truth will fight to the death on that complex,this is no sitting duck to ever mess with,truth can’t lie!
      Either way the heart of the man determines his nature,once you know,find your way around him,
      friend.

        Just in case however I understood a tiny bit of it, and for the record, the goverments since after Andreas Papandreou have been all treacherous and treasonous.

    • Ronald

      Putin knows Turkey, or whats left of it, will be around long after Erdogan is gone.
      Calling Erdogan or Trump a “friend” is diplomatic”, not to be taken literally.
      If Greece still controlled the passage to the Black Sea, he wouldn’t need to handle the Turks with ‘kid’ gloves.
      Who is backing Cyprus and Greece in Libya, look to the long game.

    The number of Turkish forces killed by that airstrike was 22, with many more injured, many seriously. The Turkish military casualties are likely to skyrocket around the Nayra-Saraqib axis. SAA reinforcements have arrived and SAA forces have already retaken Afes, which along with Nayrab has become a mass graveyard for the terrorists and their Turkish military helpers. With Afes safe the terrorists & Turks will suffer huge losses if they continue their attack on Saraqib.

    • Josiah Isaboke

      What’s the source of this News? Erdorgan will not admit this….22? Just just 2 Turkish dead and 222 SAA killed

      • Zionism = EVIL

        I have been scanning the local Turkish rags as Erdogan the cowardly pimp is using his Americunt masters template and has banned mainstream controlled media from publishing any deaths or funerals of Turkeys in Syria or Libya. It is quite evident that there is general unrest at the mounting casualties and based on a tally of local funerals of young men, there are over 120 Turkeys dead and perhaps 500 wounded so far in the goat fuckers pipe dreams in Syria and Libya. The SAA can increase the casualties ten fold at will if it uses thermobaric weapons on the surrounded OPs.

      • Lone Ranger

        Well, Syria and Russia was far too diplomatic for far too long.
        The gloves are off.
        If they wont learn the easy way they will learn the hard way ..
        I have a feeling if Erdogollum keeps this up he will have a second coup on his ass real soon…

        • Zionism = EVIL

          I agree, you must have read my comments from get go. The Turks are thugs to begin with and to appease a street illiterate bully like Erdogan was a fatal mistake. Russia should have downed a few of the Turkey fuckers F-16 after the SU-24 was shot down illegally in Syrian territory. You simply can’t negotiate with scum.

          • Lone Ranger

            I agree.
            Putin was a Gentleman with Turks, unfortunatelly Turks dont know the definition of a Gentleman.
            They only understand brute force, a treat they have in common with wahabinazi terrorists…

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Putin was trying to play the strategic game of prying the treacherous Turkeys away from NATO and is a bit naive. The Turks historically are very treacherous, they aligned with Czarist Russia against the Persians and then backstabbed the Russians again. The Ottoman–Persian Wars were mere opportunism against the Safavid, Afsharid, Zand, and Qajar dynasties of Persia. Erdogan is playing the same game again 300 years later, but will fail as hopefully Russians have wizened up. The Turks are enslaved to the Americunt and Zionist masters and can never be trusted.

          • Lone Ranger

            Totally agree.
            My country had a few bad experience with Turks as well.
            And by few I mean a few hundred years…
            But eventually we managed to get rid of them.
            Putins strategy even if a bit naive managed one thing, it bought enough time for the SAA to be able to take Idlib.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            I know all the Balkan folks hate the Turkeys, not to mention Russians, Armenians, Persians, Arabs and above all Greeks. Only their Zionist masters are their fans.

    Quran 9:117 – Allah has already forgiven the Prophet and the Emigrants and the Helpers who followed him in the hour of difficulty after the hearts of a party of them had almost inclined [to doubt], and then He forgave them. Indeed, He was to them Kind and Merciful.

  • TruthSeeker

    Quran 9:123 – O you who have believed, fight those adjacent to you of the disbelievers and let them find in you harshness. And know that Allah is with the righteous.

  • The active maps show that the Syrian Armed Forces, Russia & the other Syria allies have liberated numerous towns, villages, farmland, etc. They have had some interruptions moving forward at times; but their heroism has overcome those terrorist gangster factions;
    …and they “keep on truckin” forward, as they say in the U.S.

    Russia’s surveillance aircraft and satellites provide intelligence – Russia knows where every location, down to a square yard area, where each terrorist gangster faction is operating “IN CLEAR SIGHT” for extermination.

    Turkey continues to try to steal Syria’s real estate. When Syria liberates all their real estate in the Idlib region; Syria should respond to Turkey in gesture, and create a “safe zone” of the same depth and length of land on Turkey’s side of the border, claiming the same excuses that Turkey made for the Operation Peace Spring invasion into Syria.

    “CONTINUE” EXTREME EMPHASIS>>> SYRIAN ARMED FORCES, RUSSIA & THE OTHER SYRIA ALLIES “MUST” KEEP POUNDING !!! KEEP POUNDING !!! KEEP POUNDING 24/7 !!! UNTIL “ALL” OF SYRIA’S LAND MASS OF 185,180 SQ KM IS UNDER SYRIA’S “FULL CONTROL”.

    I am so impressed by the speed you are attaining for this very dangerous large-scale job you are doing.
    I send more prayers to you, to achieve more miracles.

    Are the Syrians ready for the Turkish onslaught? Everybody seems a little cavalier about the impending attack, which make no mistake is going to be devastating. The Turks aren’t particularly skilled but they have vast numbers and are well equipped. Look how the Kurds got slaughtered when they went up against the Turks. They got wiped out by Apaches at close range, they got droned constantly whenever they presented any kind of a target that could be seen from the air, and every stationary target got precision bombed by F-16’s from high altitude. Night offered no safety as Turks have night vision down to the individual infantryman. Hiding in cities didn’t really help because the skies swarmed with Turkish drones ready to pounce on any target that presented itself.

    I don’t want to see the SAA get slaughtered. I’m afraid all signs are the Russians are going to stand aside and let the Turks attack.

    • S Melanson

      This is where it is headed although not so sure Russia will stand down. Note Saraqib has fallen to Turkish backed militias despite intense Russian air strikes. The M5 reopening was rather short lived.

    Note Saraqib has fallen to Turkish backed militias despite intense Russian air strikes. The M5 reopening was rather short lived. Erdogan will launch all out assault in next 48 hours and if Russia and SAA go all in, we may see Damascus turned to ruins according to biblical prophesy.

    I do not think either side wanted this but it shows how events can sweep nations into head on collision. The main danger is escalation and drawing in other nations into the fray.

    • StafJustice

      Why will Damascus turn into reins when Russia have the s400 and Syria the s300?
      Unless Putin decides to betray Syria.
      Already the Chinese media are saying that the s300 is useless
