Iranian-backed forces launched a missile strike on Turkish troops on Syria
DAMASCUS, (BM) – After Iran gave an ultimatum to Turkey, demanding an immediate end to the occupation of Syria, and in Ankara ignored such a requirement, Iran-backed forces launched a missile strike on Turkish troops on the border using a ballistic missile, learned BulgarianMilitary.com citing several sources – AviaPro, Israeli news agency Nziv and Israeli 9tv channel.
According to them the Iranian-backed forces have used an upgraded version of the Soviet short-range ballistic missile. The Sources also comment that the ballistic missile was destroyed by an Turkish air defense system.
It is reported that a missile strike was launched from territory controlled by Iranian forces, however, according to the official version of the Turkish authorities, Damascus is behind the strike.
“The pro-Iranian forces fighting on the side of the Bashar al-Assad regime fired a ballistic missile at the positions of the Turkish army in the north of Idlib province. This is with reference to the Syrian media reports the Israeli news portal “Nziv”. According to preliminary data, we are talking about a medium-range missile that is identical to that used by the Yemen Houthi against the Saudi forces. It is reported that the shell was shot down by a missile defense system deployed on the border of Turkey and Syria,” 9tv channel reports.
Experts do not exclude that the Iranian forces may repeat the attack, but this time on the Turkish military in Syria.
BulgarianMilitary.com recalls that early today Iran’s leadership broke the silence and ultimately warned the Turkish armed forces that Tehran’s patience and stock of “loyalty” over the situation in Idlib is running out.
The message was transmitted to Ankara through the Iranian Military Advisory Center (MAC) in Syria.
In it, in particular, it was indicated that Turkey continues to deliver massive artillery attacks on positions of the pro-Iranian militia, despite Tehran’s incredible restraint.
