[size=18pt]Russia destroys Turkish truck convoy headed for Syrian militants -- Erdogan silent[/size]
November 26, 2015
Translated from Russian by Tom Winter
With additional photos supplied by Fort Russ
Last night (November 25) the first photos and video came up of the destroyed Turkish convoy that arrived in the militant-controlled city of Azaz. First, some photos:
Well, all in the same spirit, some information about what kind of city is this, and why is this news you need to focus on. The town Azaz is located in the north of Syria, almost on the border with Turkey. The city is a hub, where Turkish aid (weapons, ammunition, drugs, rations etc.) are dumped off. Then with all his "help" they begin to disperse it to other cities under militant control, as well as camps and fortified places.
Map. Azaz is circled in red:
As you can see, it's about five km from the Turkish border. Speaking of buffer zones, Turkey was expecting to make this city an absolute springboard, out of reach of Syrian army strikes. It did not happen. But until today, due to the remoteness of the Syrian army from it, as well as a number of geopolitical reasons, attacks were not mounted on this city.
But today the Russian air force eliminated an entire column of trucks loaded with supplies intended for the militants, there since yesterday. In any other comparable situation, the Turkish government and Erdogan in person, would have complained of Russia bombing trucks laden with Humanitarian Aid, but now, they can't afford to.
Thus Russia continues wiping out all objectives near the Turkish border, utterly ignoring the interests of Turkey (previously observed). It can now be affirmed that Turkey no longer is getting cheap oil, the militants can't get normal supplies, and border crossings by Turkish vehicles will be stopped by strikes from the Russian Air Force.
Since yesterday, Russia has been mounting massive air and artillery strikes (with the Syrian army) in the border areas with Turkey. And it means the destruction of the supply infrastructure, which was established by Turkey in these years of the war in Syria.
P.S. We learn from the Turkish press that 20 trucks were destroyed, seven killed, and 10 were injured by the strikes and the consequent fires.

otipoju:they have to and they will. Without turkey the fight against Isis will defeated ,us and other nations need turkey as an ally to defeat Isis, turkey wants assad the president of Syria out and they are arming rebels fighting against Assad not Isis ,Russia on the other hand wants assad in power at all cost ,while the USA,UK wants Assad out . So now you can see how simply complicated the issue is.

otipoju:there is mo iota of truth in Israel been behind Isis. America is Israel greatest and strongest supporter and there is no way Israel will support an organization whose aim it is to destroy america and expect USA to continue giving her support. Isis beheads Americans and still threatens to do more even on us soil and you think America will just keep quiet? Alleging that Israel supports Isis is like believing that Israel sponsored Osama bin laden .israel is surrounded by enemies and removing Assad and destroying Iran nuclear facilities is top on their agenda.

There was a news report that I listened to that showed IDF officers working covertly with ISIS. I found it hard to believe because I know Israel is eternal enemies with its neighbors... but you must agree with me that the lines have become really blurry in this saga.
We dont know whom or what to believe anymore.
All I want is relative peace to reign because the events in the middle east has begun to impact us directly in Africa ala bokoharam, mali. Kenya and others.

otipoju:bros the truth is when the coming in of alqaeda and now Isis, there will never be relative peace in the world again and besides there has never been. Isis is well funded.and they have spread round the whole world and they are even more deadly and ruthless than al qaeda.even all other terrorist groups fear them. Europe is right now on top alert and with the refugee crisis and movement of ppl from Syria into Europe,suffice to say that Europe is just a ticking time bomb

THINK AGAIN.. Those 110% in support of ISIS or taking out Assad... Isreal, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey And the head of the Empire is U.S.A
The reason is clear. For the empire, they need Syria out to weaken Lebanon Hezbollah and Iran. As long as Syria is ally to the two countries isreal fear the most in middle east. Forget it..
Now Russia is Syria's Ally and this is where Russia stand.. Go back to any history.. If Russians Stand 110% behind any government the way they are standing behind Assad.. They always win. Even though Assad in the future may Backstab but forget it..
The future is predictable... Qatar long time ago threatened to start bombing assad.. Well, let the Emir try it.

onatisi:God forbid they take out Assad. Libya and Iraq are now hell on earth as each faction of rebel harmed by NATO are now warlords and terrorists all over these countries. Once they are done with Syria, they would move on to Iran.
Till date, the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq are yet to be found.

saxywale:you are perfectly correct and that is what Putin is saying that taken out Assad without proper planning of post Assad era will only make Syria a terrorist haven . Israelbon the other hand wants to attack Iran and take out her nuclear facilities and she has said that once Israel gets the information that Iran has developed her nuclear facilities beyond to weapons grade ,she will attack with or without the us or un consent.
