Shame,

This is an indicator of their economic desperation. While people are going hungry, Erdogan allocates resources to illegal foreign adventures.

Also, the country's largest retailer of cosmetic products has just filed for bankruptcy. This is another domino to fall in a sharp rise in bankruptcies in the country.

...it is a natural habit of those "Turkish" to do such things; despite hunger, just so long as "they" aren't hungry.

...as for cosmetics, it is the "Turks" who would be pleased to hear such news, despite the indications it represents, "modesty" wins.

WHERE CREDIBLE EVIDENCE GETS BURIED BY THE US COALITION IN THEIR ILLEGAL WAR ON SYRIA. BUT IT IS THE CONSPIRACY THEORY THAT MOST PEOPLE READ THROUGH THE MSM. NO WONDER THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE IN TOTAL IGNORANCE OF THE TRUE STORY OF US VENTURES IN THE ME.

OPCW investigator testifies at UN that no chemical attack took place in Douma, Syria - published: january 22, 2020

In testimony before the united nations security council, former OPCW inspection team leader and engineering expert Ian Henderson stated that their investigation had suggested no chemical attack took place in Douma, Syria, but their findings were suppressed. His appearance punched a gaping hole in the narrative the US and UK used to justify military action.
by Ben Norton

A former lead investigator from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has spoken out at the United Nations, stating in no uncertain terms that the scientific evidence suggests there was no gas attack in Douma, Syria in April 2018.
The dissenter, Ian Henderson, worked for 12 years at the international watchdog organization, serving as an inspection team leader and engineering expert. Among his most consequential jobs was assisting the international body’s fact-finding mission (FFM) on the ground in Douma.

He told a UN Security Council session convened on January 20 by Russia’s delegation that OPCW management had rejected his group’s scientific research, dismissed the team, and produced another report that totally contradicted their initial findings.
“We had serious misgivings that a chemical attack had occurred,” Henderson said, referring to the FFM team in Douma.
The former OPCW inspector added that he had compiled evidence through months of research that “provided further support for the view that there had not been a chemical attack.”

Not for the first time either ...... then, when civilians are killed in error, Israel blames the Syrian forces! :x

Russia: Israeli jets used civilian plane as shield during attacks on Damascus countryside.

Moscow, SANA_ The Russian Defense Ministry revealed that the Israeli enemy aircraft(s), during their attacks early Thursday against some areas surrounding Damascus, used a civilian aircraft as a shield against Syrian anti-aircraft systems and endangered dozens of passengers.

............................

Konashenkov clarified that practices of Israeli General Staff in carrying out its air attacks using passenger plane to impede the work of Syrian Air Defense systems is becoming a strategy used by Israeli air force paying no heed to civilians’ lives .

What are you complaining about?

Does Israel have a torture facility where it's own citizens mysteriously disappear?

Who are we going to believe? Israel or Assad? Doesn't seem to difficult a question to me.

And please, why would the Israeli's use a passenger plane as a shield? For crying out loud, there are many ways to confuse any Air Defence with decoys and jammers and the Israeli's don't need a shield? Propaganda much? Good luck proving that one. :lol:

Everyone seems to be talking about Air Defence. What Air Defence is that? Did they end up getting any S300/S400s? Or are they still using the S200? :lol:

Why won't the Russians sell them the S400? mmm all very interesting questions my dear Watson and I know the answer but are you smart enough to figure it out yet?

I don’t really expect you to even consider that a source that is Russian could in fact be a credible source of information but .........as I said “..... not for the first time!”

Putin Calls Downing of Russian Plane in Syria ‘Tragic’ and (But?) Absolves Israel

Got it in one! Of course I don't take any source from Russia seriously.

I mean let's face it! Russia isn't exactly a bastion of pluralism and freedom except in your eyes that is. Them and Iran, North Korea, Syria and others like them.

It really amazes me. You guys have a habit of shooting down your own planes. And then to blame it on Israel.

Well, why not shoot down an Israeli aircraft for once? Oh that's right. Because they got Syria's measure and come and go as they please.

Israel had nothing to do with it. They were just attacking Hezbollah terrorists.

"Army units now exercise full control over the town of Saraqeb," state television reported, showing footage of the town's streets, deserted after weeks of bombardment.

Saraqeb is considered a strategic prize for the government as it seeks to regain control of the M4 and M5 highways that meet in the town.

The M5, Syria's longest highway, connects second city Aleppo to the capital Damascus and continues south to the Jordanian border.

With Saraqeb recaptured, little more than half of Idlib province remains in rebel hands, along with slivers of neighbouring Aleppo and Latakia provinces.

Turkey's observation posts, several of them, are surrounded. Turkish troops have come in direct conflict with Assad's troops, some killed and wounded. Erdogan, for this, has promised a reaction. Meanwhile...

Turkey’s Ministry of Defense said another five Turkish troops were wounded when Syrian government forces opened fire on them. The attack on the Taftanaz military base, which the Turkish army took over from the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad last week, came as Turkey poured fresh troops and equipment into the province following Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s vows to retaliate for a separate attack seven days ago. Eight Turkish soldiers died in that attack.

Erdogan said Damascus must pull back its forces from new territory it has captured in recent weeks or face a full-scale Turkish offensive. But regime forces kept advancing over the weekend, entering the strategic town of Saraqeb.


Either way, Idlib’s estimated three million civilians, nearly half of them displaced by conflict elsewhere in Syria, are the biggest losers, with the United Nations warning of a looming humanitarian catastrophe. Mark Cutts, the UN’s deputy regional humanitarian coordinator, told the BBC, “This is a winter exodus, with ice on the ground, sub-zero temperatures, people freezing & trying to keep their babies alive, people sleeping on the backs of trucks ... Scale of crisis is unimaginable.”

At least one million people are estimated to have been displaced within Idlib itself since the regime unleashed its most recent offensive in April. Hundreds of thousands have headed toward the Turkish border, which remains sealed.

Turkeys intentions were obvious and the outcome of their invasion in to Syria was totally predictable.

They are trying to steal land, support the terrorists in iblid and ethnically cleanse the area of Kurds.

They are making the situation worse and prolonging the conflict. *which they helped start"
