looks like the last wipe of pro turk rebels was another one.. of the 200 , anna news and sana news claimed
in the first offensive , with up to 400 rebels killed.. so if Sana news is correct.. then the kill count of terrorist
is 200+400 = 600 terrorist/turkey soldiers in just 2 days.. trying to capture Nairab in Idlib province. they
still can continue doing this for one week or two if they are desperate to die... so be it.. since they should have
about 30,000 terrorist in idlib and up to 10,000 turkey soldiers..Another disastrous defeat of terrorists in Syria. More then 400 dead.
in more news.
the latest phone talks today between erdogan and putin..
Putin stressed respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria ..
The Erdogan stressed the need to implement the Sochi Agreement, and the two parties agreed to continue consulting to reach a ceasefire in Idlib ...
Unless the regime [in Damascus] stops its attacks in Idlib, it is not possible for us to withdraw. -erdogan
Safe corridors in Idlib and Aleppo will soon open
After a Russian-Turkish agreement
Reuters: Macron and Merkel speak with Erdogan and demand a political solution to the Syrian Idlib crisis
So its seems the last conversation the tone or erdogan have changed.. from "syria army have to go".. to
to ... "Unless the regime [in Damascus] stops its attacks in Idlib, it is not possible for us to withdraw"
also another observation is the war-peace scenario in syria.. with some zones at peace with turkey army
doing patrols with russian army. but in other zones.. they fighting each other.. turkey army trying to
strike at russian planes with stinger manpads and russian airforce bombing at turkey supplied convoys to terrorist trying to attack SAA positions.
So erdogan is sending signals is willing to negotiate for idlib.. and don't want a full scale war with Russia..
so in the latest conversation with putin.. by phone today. possible things erdogan doing are..
1) he is only trying to earn time ,to hold SAA offensive until they fortify other cities ,with fake promises ,until he position his military in the places he wants..
2) he is looking for ways to exit the conflict ,without making it look like a defeat for his army.. and trying to negotiate ...
it could be something of both.. and more..
what is interestingly it seems as if Putin is requesting ,full liberation of all idlib from terrorist ,and disarm Alnusra/hts ...perhaps Putin was told by his military ,that if he give something to Erdogan ,he will continue playing games and that soft talking with heavy airforce bombing on any hostile force attacking SAA is the way out of the conflict.. to win by force , and soft talking.
It will be insane if erdogan provokes Russia into a full scale war.. that he will badly lose.
and putin neither wants such scenario either.. im sure Russia is telling erdogan ,that both nations needs
each other to fulfill many of their interest. and that is better to work together , that each one on their own.
