A Turkish (NATO) drone carried out a series of powerful attacks against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the Idlib Governorate on Tuesday, causing significant damage to the SAA’s equipment.
In one such attack, a Turkish drone was filmed bombing a Syrian military convoy in the southern Idlib city of Ma’arat Al-Nu’man.
The Turkish drones lock in on the Syrian military convoys and then bombs them, resulting in a powerful explosion.
Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad said on Wednesday that his country has not taken any hostile action against Turkey.
“What hostile act has Syria done against Turkey? There are none. There are cases of marriage between Turks and Syrians, there are Turkish-Syrian families, there are common life interests, there is a historical convergence between cultures; therefore, it makes no sense that we have differences.
Erdogan stressed that “Turkey will not allow the blood of its martyrs to be wasted” and that it “will not leave the oppressed Syrian people alone”, according to the Turkish “Anatolia” agency.
The Turkish Ministry of Defense also announced the “downing of 3 fighters, 8 helicopters, 3 drones and destruction of 151 tanks, 52 rocket launchers, 47 artillery and 8 air defense platforms for the Syrian forces since the beginning of Operation Spring Shield.”
The Idlib Governorate has been experiencing violent battles for weeks, after armed men carried out a series of attacks targeting Syrian Army positions, which resulted in heavy fighting between the two sides.
