Syrian MP: Recent Clashes in Hama Direct Russia-Turkey Confrontation

TEHRAN (FNA)- Syrian parliamentarians from Idlib disclosed direct military confrontations between the Russian and Turkish armies in recent military confrontations in Hama province due to Ankara’s direct backup for terrorists in the province.

Syrian lawmaker Safvan Qorba from Idlib Province, in an interview with the Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper, said that another dimension of the recent clashes in Hama province pertained to the direct confrontation between Russia and Turkey because the Turkish side due to its direct presence in Northern Syria battle was massively present in the frontline – and not behind the contact line.

Qorba pointed to the Turkish Army commanders leading the terrorist groups in battles in Hama, and said that Ankara has unprecedentedly supplied the terrorist groups with state-of-the-art weapons and armored vehicles.

Meantime, another Syrian lawmaker from Idlib province Jamal Mostav noted that a large number of Idlib province’s residents are waiting to join the Syrian Army, and said there is extensive cooperation between Idlib residents and the Syrian Army as Syrian citizens inform the Syrian Army of the places where the terrorist groups are stationed and expose their plots for conducting false-flag chemical attacks.

Mostav also pointed to Ankara’s continued efforts to occupy Idlib province, and said that tens of thousands of foreign terrorists, including from Chechnya and China have arrived in Northern Aleppo with the help of Turkish Army and they have been fully stationed in several towns and prevent the Syrians from entering those regions.

“The foreign terrorists have the full support of Turkey and receive orders from Ankara,” the Syrian lawmaker added.

On the other hand, another Syrian parliamentarian from Idlib province Fatemeh Khamis said that a large number of people abducted by the terrorist groups are currently in Turkey and even according to the intel their locations have been designated.

Khamis said that the terrorist groups use the kidnapped people as a pressure lever against the Syrian government.

In a relevant development on Saturday, the commanders of terrorist groups held a meeting in Idlib province to prepare for false-flag chemical attacks on areas under the control of the Turkish army to falsely accuse the Syrian Army.

Special sources in Idlib said that the commanders of Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay’at have decided to conduct fresh false chemical attacks in the province to point the finger of accusations at the Damascus Army.

They noted that the terrorist commanders have agreed to conduct chemical attacks on spots 9 and 10 controlled by the Turkish Army to portray that the Syrian Army has carried out the attack.

Meantime, the Syrian Army’s artillery and missile units pounded the terrorists’ military positions in the towns of al-Latamineh, Kafar Zita and al-Hobait in Northern Hama and Southern Idlib in response to the terrorists’ rocket attacks on residential areas of Sheikh Hadid and al-Jornieh in Northern Hama.

The Syrian Army’s artillery units also pounded Tahrir al-Sham’s military convoys in the town of al-Mastoumeh and near Jabal al-Qarbain towards the city of Ariha in Southern Idlib, inflicting heavy losses on the militants.

The Arabic-language website of the Russian Sputnik news agency also quoted a military source as saying that over 25 terrorists have been killed in al-Jalmeh in Northern Hama and several of their military vehicles, including the Turkish Army’s armored vehicles were destroyed.
