  • Syrian airforce kills 33 Turkish soldiers

    33 Turkish troops have been killed in a Syrian airstrike in northern Syria. The Turks say they will retaliate but it is unclear how. There is of course a possibility that it wasn't Syrian planes but Russian ones.

    I expect Erdogan will try to get the US and or NATO on his side.

    If he does I hope he gets told where to stick it.

      Technically since the Turks were in Syria I don't think it would be an article 5 situation.
      The problem for the Turks is the Russians. The Russians control the airspace above northern Syria and the Turks are going to have to engage them if they want to give their troops air cover.

          I have no sympathy for Assad and if the Turks want to have a go at him that is fine. Perhaps they could use their S400s against the Russians themselves? It seems to be a mass rammy in Syria with everyone fighting everyone else.

          update

          According to a link on the ACG Facebook page the Turks having been doing good work fighting Iranians and Assadists. And would have done more if it wasn’t for the Russians. The Turks killed appear to have been part of a relief column for one of their out posts.

            Turkey is opening its borders for migrants to leave. https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-sy...Name=worldNews

            No doubt the EU will take a strong position on this.
