Turkey starts a military operation in Syria; Sudan asks for help; Tension in Gaza
PANAGYURISHTE, (BM) – Your briefly report on February 10 in last twelve hours from BulgarianMilitary.com:
Turkey starts a military operation in Syria.
A few hours ago, the Syrian information network Rojava Network, citing data from the news agency Step News Agency, reported that the Turkish military command sent pro-Turkish forces and militants an order to prepare for the start of a large-scale military operation against the Syrian military in Idlib and Aleppo with the direct participation of the Turkish army.
Given the need for training, Turkey could unleash a war against Syria in the next 24-72 hours.
“According to the source of Step News Agency, Turkey ordered the leaders of the National Liberation Front factions to increase their readiness“ to begin widespread military operations in Idlib and Aleppo with the participation of Turkish forces,” the network said.
There are no official comments from Ankara on this issue.
On the other hand, it was previously reported that Russia does not intend to allow military action in Idlib, since Russian troops are also located here, and a few days ago Russian airborne fighters were forced to intercept Turkish combat aircraft in the sky over Idlib.
Sudan asks UN to deploy peacekeeping mission
Sudan’s government is requesting that the UN deploy a peacekeeping mission in the country to help during the transitional period, a spokesman for Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok said today Anadolu Agency reports.
The mission’s mandate would be under Chapter 6 of the UN charter and would be deployed in the entire country, said a statement by spokesman Elnazir Alnazir.
The mission would contain “political agents” to push forward the peace process in the country, said the statement, but did not specify whether it would include military forces or not.
“Sudan’s government has submitted a request to the United Nations asking for a UN Security Council mandate to deploy a peace-building mission under Chapter 6 of the UN charter,” the statement said.
It added that the mission should also help in implementation of the constitutional declaration governing the country’s transitional period until the general elections in 2022.
After rocket fired into Israel, aircraft strike Hamas targets in Gaza
Israeli warplanes attacked several targets in the Gaza Strip after midnight Sunday, the army said, several hours after terrorists in the enclave launched a rocket into Israel.
The Israel Defense Forces said warplanes and and other aircraft attacked several targets of the Hamas terror group in southern Gaza, including “a training camp and military infrastructure.”
The army said it holds Hamas responsible for all violence emanating from the Strip.
According to Palestinian reports, the IAF hit a site along the beach near Khan Younis in southern Gaza and a Hamas base in Deir el Balah in central Gaza.
The strikes came after incoming rocket sirens sent thousands of Israelis rushing to bomb shelters in the southern town of Sderot and the surrounding area on Sunday night.
The IDF said it had identified a rocket launch from Gaza. The projectile reportedly hit an open field. There were no reports of injuries or damage.
