LATEST UPDATE 4:10 PM EST — Yesterday, Turkish President Recypt Erdogan said Turkey will not allow Idlib, Syria to come back under control of the Syrian Government, and his Turkish Army would commence attacks to make certain of this. This morning, RUSSIA warned Turkey that such an effort would result in the Russians DEFENDING Syria.
Eight minutes ago, at 2:52 PM eastern US time, Turkish artillery began shelling Syrian forces in and around Idlib, including Syrian forces which have RUSSIAN TROOPS embedded.
The Turks entered Syria UNINVEITED and WITHOUT AUTHORIZATION almost a year ago. This new adventure by Turkey will get their forces stomped into the ground by Russian forces, and will likely mean actual HOT WAR between Turkey and Russia.
It has begun. Multiple sources confirming heavy exchanges of artillery and gunfire.
