SouthFront: Turkey’s Military Intervention to Syria

…from SouthFront

During the video production, Southfront: Analysis & Intelligence also received information that at least one Saudi motorized brigade equipped with about 90 armoured vehicles was moved to Iraqi border.  This force could become a core of a joint force which could be used by the Saudi-led coalition to support Turkish military intervention to Syria.


The military balance in Northern Syria is shifting rapidly. The Syrian Army and local militias supported by the Russian Air Force have cut terrorists from major supply lines from Turkey and almost encircled the militant forces in the Aleppo city. This has become possible due to the actions of the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces which have been destroying the terrorists’ sources of funding since 2015.

Thus, we could observe a breakdown on the battlefield which leads to a full collapse of the terrorists forces in Syria step by step. This also dished schemes of the foreign players interested in overthrowing of the Assad government.

In the contemporary situation the Erdogan’s regime acts as a main sponsor and creator of a terrorist threat in the Middle East. Turkey is a crucial part of terrorist logistics network which allows terrorist groups in Syria to receive arms supplies and reinforcements. The Turkish elites have a strong business ties predominantly oil smuggling with ISIS and other terrorists in Syria.

The Erdogan imperial ambitions in the Middle East also plays an important role in the conflict. Erdogan believes that a breakdown of Syria will allow him to set a protectorate or even occupy the northern part of the Arab country.

The successes of anti-terrorist forces in Syria have destroyed a hope to realize these plans easily. Considering this, the Erdogan’s regime launched preparations for a direct intervention to the country without any legal mandate. A high-level of concentration of the Turkish military are already observed in the Syrian-Turkish border by civil and military sources. Furthermore, there are irresistible videos proofs that Turkey has been conducting a series of cross-border artillery shelling violating the Syrian sovereignty.

Experts suggest Turkey is ready to deploy some 18,000 troops with substantial artillery and air support to occupy a 30-kilometer deep territory across the border running from the city of Jarabulus westward to the city of Azaz. The operation would cover an area under ISIS control, and it would provide a direct military assistance to terrorists and facilitate establishing of a buffer zone for the vestiges of their forces in Northern Syria.

It would drastically escalate the tensions with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the predominantly Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). However, the Turkish military is fully capable of completing the first move aimed to push the SAA and the SDF from the aforementioned area and occupy a significant part of Northern Syria.

This step will likely face a hard answer of the Russian military grouping located in the country. The Russian land and navy air-defense systems and fighter jets are fully capable to neutralize the Turkish air force which will allow the Syrian government to counter-attack the Turkish intervention forces. Thus, the anti-terrorist forces will get a chance to exercise a counter-attack which will be likely supported by the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces.

This situation leads to 2 main scenarios:

  1. If the SAA with support by militia forces, Iran, and Russia isn’t able to push the Turkish military from Syria, the Erdogan’s regime will strengthen presence at the occupied territories and use gained time to receive at least air and intelligence support by NATO. In this case, the conflict could easily lead to a global war.
  2. If the SAA supported by local militias, Iran, and Russia knock out the Turkish intervention forces from Syria, NATO will face the fact that Syria is de-facto liberated and the terrorists are cut from their main supplier. It could prevent a global escalation. However, the NATO countries would strengthen their presence in Iraq and use it as a foothold to launch further destructive actions against Syria. The situation will also become especially acute in Ukraine and in the Central Asia because a destabilization in these regions could be easily used against the Syria’s main allies: Russia and Iran.

    Indeed some believe their path is paved with gold.

    Also: Hatay goes back to Syria, Greece gains access to the Black Sea enabling South Stream route, Turkish occupation of Cyprus ends, Jupiters and similar NATO weapons are removed from Turkey, Turkish-Israeli cooperation via Eastern Med oil/gas exploration becomes void, and this big drug/weapon/human trafficking hub of the Brutish Empire of the Crown Corporation from City of London is destroyed there…

    If Turkey invades Syria then no doubt the Russians and Syrians would certainly re -act to such a brazen, illegal and foolhardy act.
    Would NATO support Turkey if such an event occurs to be the trigger to major conflict?
    Is Europe prepared to go to war with Russia to fulfill the plans of the Zio,s and Anglo-American criminals?
    If the Turks invade then I would think the Russians would hit them with full force and rapidly as they really have no other option.
    The Russians will not be toyed with and with the current situation between Russia and Turkey at an all time low the Turks will be the major loser.

    Are the Europeans that stupid to back Turkey?
    At some stage this situation will very likely go hot and could rapidly escalate while the psycopath instigators sit back in Tel Aviv and Washington and use Nato as their chess piece.
    Just how far are the Russians prepared to go?
    That is the unknown question.
    Maybe we are about to find out.

    We are certainly in dangerous times.

    There are serious global forces at play here. The globalists can simply not allow their forces to be annihilated, it would deal a too serious blow to the morale of their future European and American fighters as well as a moral boost to the peoples of Europe especially. It is a mind game as well. The stakes are really high.
    The Russians have already made clear in subtle words they will not sit idly if/when especially Germany falls apart through you know what…
    Will the Russians allow this to become a drawn out ordeal?
    I think the probability of the Russians using their Iskander nukes are at least 50-50 were we to see a proper invasion of the Turks..god help us.

      I tend to agree with your comments. What happens next will define the future of the entire Middle East.
      The NWO plans have been severely curtailed and this may well be their last crack at the title.
      If there is a planned major escalation in the Ukraine at the same time, then we are looking at, as you say some serious global forces at work.
