Turkey launches multiple strikes on Syria

Turkey launched multiple strikes on Syria.

Turkish artillery launched numerous strikes on the territory of northern Syria. As it became known, as a result of massive artillery shelling, Kurdish formations in the area of ​​\u15b\uXNUMXbthe settlements of Sajur and Akiba were liquidated. It is reported about the elimination of at least XNUMX Kurdish military, while at the same time, the appearance of Turkish military columns in the area of ​​​​the city of Azaz was recorded.

Tonight, a Turkish military operation began, in which Ankara intends to take control of a 30-kilometer zone along the Syrian border, as well as the city of Aleppo, which is one of the largest cities in Syria.

Despite statements from Syria that Damascus does not intend to allow the appearance of the Turkish army on its territory, there has not yet been any response from the Syrian army. At the same time, no active hostilities by the Turkish army and Turkish-controlled militants are recorded. This, in all likelihood, is due to the fact that Ankara is busy at the current stage with the transfer of its troops to the territory of Syria that is not controlled by the SAA.

The Russian side has not yet commented on its readiness to intervene in a new escalation between Turkey and Syria, however, given that Syria is one of Moscow's most important allies in the region, Russia will categorically oppose any destabilization.
