    Turkey 3rd. day of shelling Syria.

    Doesn't seem like much reaction from Damascus or Moscow. Almost meaningless complaint to the UN, that's about it.

    Comment from bmpd

    In the camera lens got and the technique presumably Russian contingent of the towed 152-mm howitzers "Msta-B" (three), tanks T-90A (one), an artillery tractor on KAMAZ-6350 (8x8) (three), ordinary on-Board KAMAZ-43114 (6x6) (three), the URAL-4320 (one), BTR-82A (at least two), the UAZ-3163 "Patriot" and UAZ-23632 "Pickup" (one), the Mi-8AMTSH with two blocks NAR B-8В20А. Noteworthy that the position of the Russian guns is protected under various forces - tanks T-90 and BTR-82, along with the Syrian BMP-1 and 57-mm self-propelled anti-aircraft guns C-60 on a truck chassis.

    It is Kurdish problem, they want Rojava, they can have it if they earn it. Turks do not have the balls to go into Syria because they are dead if they do. They can whine and lash out but that is it.

    And it is a good reminder for Kurds that they need to pick their allies carefully because for USA turkey>Kurds.

    Syrian Federation with Republic of Rojava inside it, here we come. thumbsup

    Looks at those maps people..

    Everything under red colored zones  are closed for Turkey supplies. And anything between
    red that is withing 5km distance too.. SO Aleppo main city center is closed ,and it have been for months already. What is left there is street fight house by house ,that the Syrian army is trying
    to avoid ,to see if the hunger and lack of food pressure the terrorist to agree to a deal to leave the city. This already happened in Homs ,terrorist without food ,and small supply saw no change to defeat the Syrian army agree to leave with the condition they allowed to move to another
    terrorist city.

    The interesting part is however Raqqa. It seems pretty difficult to supply raqqa
    from Turkey..because all major roads seems to be blocked.unless there are minor urban roads we not aware, So Turks sponsored terrorist will have to cross the Eufrates and create temporay bridges to supply Raqqa or go trough desert without roads and hard terrain to enter in Raqqa ,or else supply Terrorist through IRAQ border that is a very long route . Unless ofcourse Kurds betray Russia and Syria and allow Turkey supplies to
    ISIS to pass through its territory. This might look like impossible.. but already they were allowing ISIS oil trucks to do it. The desperation of Turkey and Saudi Arabia however suggest
    the assistance is over. And pretty much they need to reverse the gains of Syrian army and Russia or in a matter of a month or two ,their terrorist will be without supplies and without food.
    and very weakened to any fight. and from the south ,to the right Syrian army is advancing
    towards Raqqa ,withing 10km to 15km?  of totally close Raqqa city from the western open corridor . So if the Syrian army manage to reach that city ,it will pretty much will have a virtual same effect as closing  turkey border .. this is of course if Kurds do not betray Russia and Syria and allow supplies to enter through its yellow colored controlled territory.  So the advances toward raqqa is a real game changing because cut supplies to aleppo and Raqqa and possibly the oil trucks too.

    Once Syrian army reach Tabqa Air base is game over for supply routes from Turkey to Raqqa.
    It will also allow the Syrian army to be withing artillery range of Raqqa . Will be nice if Russia
    or IRAN deploy a couple of thousands airbone troops in Kurds zones to invade Raqqa from the east ,cutting also the supplies from Iraq.


    it even Allow the Syrian army to capture its oil fields too ,so not more oil for ISIS.

    This has nothing to do with whole story, but i found this amusing, Serbians on Twitter and Facebook in spirit of latest Syrian/Russian advances started posting rewritten texts of old Serbian Epic songs (about our national and mythical heroes, wars with Turkey and Chetnik songs) to fit Syrian theatre, for actual Serbian its so funny. Especially due to fact that many our old songs have Turks as main villans, so it fits so great Very Happy

    "Oј,Асаде,мио брате,
    Сирије комаданте!
    Дижи војску,свети наше,
    код Алепа ђе несташе!"

    "Hey, Assad, our dear brother,
    Commander of Syria,
    Raise the army, lay revenge,
    For our brothers in Aleppo that perished"

    Or "У Алепу, у Алепу, синуће слобода!" - "In Aleppo, in Aleppo, freedom will shine again"

    "Nad Alepom živa vatra sjeva, da vidimo kog Turčina nema" - "Above alepo, bright fire is burning, lets see which Turks are gone"

    the push on Latakia has kinda lost momentum if you consider how quick they gained ground after Salma was captured, now it seems they have slowly applying the same tactic on Kinsibba, i just wish they would hurry up and liberate the whole Latakia region so they can get to work on Jisr Shughur. Also just wish the eastern Aleppo cauldron could be finally sealed and ISIS finally boiled. Both have went on for too long, and i am also guessing the Palmyra offensive will now be put on hold due to the push towards Tabqa airbase. Problem is manpower and also the fact the RuAF are working round the clock and can't attack every front. Either more aircraft is needed and this doesnt have to be Russian, the Iranians could deploy some, and the other thing needed is more troops, its highly unlikely Russia will supply any so they have to come from Iran. Of course more equipment from Russia is also welcome, need some 2S1, 2S3, 2S5 Giatsint-S, 2S19 Msta, the first 3 Russia has loads of and could easily supply these, and and when they finally get to Tabqa airbase deploy some 2S7 pion and start shelling Al Raqqah the sheer power of this weapon along with destructive psychological effect would have ISIS crapping themselves.

    "Opposition" twitter accounts complain that Turkish artillery strikes are of low intensity and imprecise, ie can`t do jack sh*t to stop Kurdish advance.

    We will see, but this is perhaps Erdogans way to lose face with some grace.
