Five Turkish soldiers killed in Syrian artillery attack in Idlib

Syrian shells struck a Turkish observation post at Taftanaz airbase in the opposition-held part of Idlib province of northwest Syria on Monday, killing 5 Turkish soldiers and injuring five others. Syria government forces are in the middle of a major offensive to recapture the last province remaining in rebel hands. It is supported by Iran-backed militias and Russian air strikes. A week ago, 8 Turkish troops were killed in a similar artillery attack amid the Syrian push into Idlib. Ankara, which backs the rebels, has given Damascus up to the end of the month to pull back to former ceasefire lines.

    From the Debka article:

    “Ankara, which backs the rebels, has given Damascus up to the end of the month to pull back to former ceasefire lines.”

    Erdoğan Turkey wants more Respect & Power from its Old Ottoman Empire Roots. Iran Shiia Regime wants its own Caliphate Past Persia Empire Glories. These Dual Goals Conflict in a Mideast that won’t let either achieve what they seek. Turkey & Iran will exhaust each other over Syria, Iraq, & Mideast Expansion & Will Fall within as Sultan & Supreme Leaders History Don’t Mix in any Future Mideast! They will Exhaust each other!
