Conflict Region: War in Northern Syria: Major Powers in Attack Mode – Politics

Monday, February 5th, 2018 | bitcoin updates


The reaction came promptly. Immediately after the launch of one of its fighters over northern Syria and the death of the pilot, Russia's army attacked positions of the insurgents. There were reports of heavy air strikes against several targets in Idlib province. The attack also targeted the location from which jihadist militants Hayat Tahrir al-Sham fired an anti-aircraft missile at the Sukhoi bomber. More than 30 terrorists have been destroyed by "high-precision weapons," said the Ministry of Defense. That the retaliation is so severe, is not accidental. The anger in Moscow over the loss of the "heroic" major is as great as the uncertainty. For the first time a Russian jet was apparently brought from the sky with the help of a shoulder-based, so mobile anti-aircraft system. Which represents a new form of threat for Russia, which has sovereignty over Syria. Where did the anti-aircraft missiles come from, because the so-called manpads have a range of several kilometers. Therefore, the pilots have now been ordered to fly over the war zone at a height of at least 5000 meters to be protected from fire, reports the newspaper "Izvestia". However, it is still unclear from which arsenals this military technology originates. However, the leadership in Moscow has already identified the culprit – the United States. Their stocks are said to come from the ground-to-air missile. But the American government vehemently rejects the accusation. The foreign ministry in Washington said that the opposition in Syria had not been armed with such weapons. In fact, then-President Barack Obama had repeatedly refused to provide anti-aircraft systems to the opponents of rulers Bashar al Assad. Obama's successor Donald Trump renounces his own admission even to any kind of support for the enemies of the Syrian regime and focuses solely on the fight against the "Islamic State". However, it can not be completely ruled out that American air defense systems in the hands of the insurgents are. The Gulf States as buyers of US defense equipment are said to have delivered several such weapons to Sunni extremists in recent years to help them in the war against Assad.

Tear between the NATO partnersAlso Syria's ruler himself is indirectly responsible. Because a few years ago rebel groups bragged with manpads that came from the depots of the Syrian army. And those in turn may have been part of a year-long Moscow military aid. If this were the case, then the Sukhoi bomber would, ironically, have been shot down by a Russian weapon. However unclear the answer to the question of the origin of the anti-aircraft missile, it is clear that the situation in northern Syria is escalating more and more. This also applies to the dispute between Turkey and the US in the region. The rift between NATO allies continues to grow. The pro-government Turkish press blames Americans for the deaths of five soldiers whose Leopard tanks were hit by a missile from the Kurdish-Syrian militia YPG during the Turkish intervention in Afrin, Syria was. The projectile is to come from American arms deliveries to the YPG. According to a report by the daily newspaper "Yeni Safak", more trucks with weapons supplies for the Kurds were stopped by the YPG in northern Syria. Dependent on Russia's benevolenceRemembered by the allegations is the fact that several Turkish media report that the tank was destroyed by a bazooka of the Russian type "bankruptcy". Despite this suspicion there were no allegations against Moscow in the government-related Turkish press on Monday – but violent attacks against Washington. This consideration could be due to Turkey's reliance on Russia's intervention in its current Syria intervention. The YPG is being fought by Turkey as a terrorist organization and Syrian offshoot of the Kurdish PKK, but plays a key role in the US's Syria strategy. Washington sees the Kurdish militia as the most powerful partner in the fight against the Islamic State (IS) and as the nucleus of a future 30,000-strong protective force to secure areas liberated from ISIS. In addition, this new force and the 2,000 US soldiers stationed there are to stop Iran's expansion of power in Syria.

In Manbij, about 100 kilometers east of the fiercely contested Afrin away, the two NATO allies could even soon come together. Ankara wants to expel the YPG namely from Manbij and calls for the withdrawal of the American soldiers stationed there. However, Washington refuses. Erdogan's calculation is enough time to avoid a direct confrontation, said Robert Pearson, a former US ambassador to Turkey, the Tagesspiegel. But soldiers from Turkey or the US should be killed by shelling the other side, be it too late, according to Pearson, who works for the Middle East Institute in Washington. In America, the growing tensions in the election tactics of the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan seen. Before parliamentary and presidential elections in the coming year Erdogan therefore wants to fuel the nationalist mood in the country. Meanwhile, speculation is circulating that Erdogan may prefer the elections to this summer to maximize the hoped-for gains. Even if a direct confrontation in Syria can be avoided, the US should consider re-evaluating its relationship with Turkey, says Tally Helfont, Middle East expert at the Foreign Policy Research Institute think tank in Philadelphia. Ultimately, close relationships between two states were based on common interests and common threat scenarios. Washington and Ankara would be far apart. Broad anti-Americanism A lasting divide between the two countries would shake NATO, further remove Turkey from the West, and increase Russia's influence on Ankara. At least in the short term, a rapprochement seems unlikely. Thus, the anti-Americanism in Turkey, which has been fueled by the government, has reached such proportions that a rapid turnaround for Erdogan would be difficult to achieve without loss of credibility.
