FIGHTING HAS BEGUN !!!! Turkey Shelling into Syria; Directly Attacking Syrian Arab Army and perimeter of Russian Base in Latakia

Post by U.S.Reporter

- Feb 13, 2016



It appears that World War 3 is beginning right now.  This morning, Turkish Artillery began shelling positions outside of Azzaz, Syria.  Those positions are held by the Syrian Arab Army (legitimate, duly-elected government of Syria) and are NOT being aimed at ISIS terrorists! These are direct attacks by Turkey upon the lawful government forces of Syria.With their rebel pals falling to the legitimate government of Syria, Turkey has now begun shelling into Syria to aid their Rebel forces and ISIS Terrorists!

Sources on the ground inside Syria tell SuperStation95 that the Turks began a furious artillery barrage at about 6:00 AM eastern US time today.  Turkey is attacking the Kurdish YPG.

It is unclear at this time, whether the YPG is pro-Bashar Assad and his duly elected government, but it is clear that YPG directly engaged and destroyed ISIS in past battles.  So on the surface, it appears that YPG are the “good guys” and Turkey is attacking them!

It is not known if Russian air forces will engage the artillery firing into Syria because to do so would mean attacking those forces  located inside Turkey.  If Russia were to attack them – even though they have lawful cause to do so — it is clear that Turkey would cry to NATO that they had been “attacked” and try to invoke Article 5 of the NATO self-defense agreement.  That would require NATO to come to the defense of Turkey, thus engaging Russia directly. 

One intelligence source in the US, who must remain anonymous – told SuperStation95 “This has disaster written all over it.”

This is a fast developing story, and will be updated frequently today (13 February 2016).  Check back often.

UPDATE:  12:10 PM EST —  Turkish Official boldly declares “major escalation will take place in Syria within 24 hours.”

UPDATE: 12:32 PM EST — Turkish warplanes are flying on the Turkey side of the Turkey/Syria Border, fast and low.    Russian warplanes are flying on the Syrian side of the Turkey/Syria border.  If any single one of these pilots flies across — or fires across – the border, all hell is going break lose TODAY.

UPDATE  2:34 PM Eastern US Time — In an utterly UNPRECEDENTED move, Turkey has begun notifying NEWS AGENCIES (Like Ours) to make certain we are at worked and properly staffed tomorrow because there will be very big news and a huge escalation in Syria.  This is amazing to us; governments don’t do this sort of thing.  They aren’t saying exactly what will happen but the thought is a major air offensive with the Saudis ahead of ground troops. Some pathfinder forces are already on the ground in Syria

UPDATE 2:41 PM Eastern US Time — Turkey is closing major roads near Syrian border and hospitals are being cleared.

 URGENT UPDATE: 2:45 PM Eastern US Time –  UK military members told to cancel all plans and all leave, prepare for deployment to Syria!

UPDATE 2:49 PM Eastern US Time — Turkish Military Artillery Forces have just begun yet another barrage of artillery fire into Syria; this one is directly targeting the Syrian Arab Army and is a direct attack upon the lawful government of Syria –  Turkey is now levying war upon Syria.  Turkey attacked first.  Turkey cannot expect to be able to invoke NATO Article 5 because Turkey attacked first.

 Update  2:58 PM Eastern US Time — An entire FLEET of Russian Antonov-124 cargo planes (the largest cargo planes in the world) have begun arriving in Syria carrying Russian Tanks, Nuclear-tipped artillery shells and other major warfighting gear.  Within the last 90 minutes, TWO of these massive cargo aircraft have landed and began unloading.  Other Antoniv’s can be seen circling under the watchful eye of Russian warplanes as shown below:


UPDATE 3:17 PM Eastern US Time 13 February 2016 — Russian Air Force Strategic Bomber/Tanker HF Voice Net “BALANS” Heavily Active with numerous fighter jets arranging re-fueling on their trip from northwestern Russia to Syria.  NUMEROUS NUMEROUS Russian Fighter Jets in the air enroute to Syria right now

UPDATE 3:40 PM Eastern US Time —   Turkish artillery in Hayat, Turkey is targeting Syrian Arab Army positions near #Latakia. Syria.  This is an additional line of attack by Turkey, directly against the lawful army of the duly-elected government of Syria.  Turkey and Syria are now in a de facto state of war.

UPDATE 3:45 PM Eastern US Time — FLASH: Turkish artillery has begun hitting Syrian Army positions in northern #Syria

UPDATE 3:51 PM Eastern US Time –  Turkish Foreign Minister Davutoglu says “Syrian Kurdish militia must withdraw from area around Azaz in northern Syria.”   (Did you get that?  The TURKISH foreign minister is telling certain people in ANOTHER COUNTRY, that they must leave their country because TURKEY says so!)

UPDATE 4:01 PM Eastern US Time — The Foreign Minister of Saudi Arabia has told CNN “Assad will leave — have no doubt about it. He will either leave by a political process or he will be removed by force.”  (Did you get that?  The foreign minister of SAUDI ARABIA is deciding who can be the duly-elected President of ANOTHER COUNTRY, Syria!)


 Pardon Us for a moment while we insert some much-needed Humor into this deadly serious news coverage.   Given the Turkish and Saudi remarks about Syria (above), we thought injecting this meme might be a stress-reliever! 


UPDATE 4:25 PM Eastern US Time — SuperStation95 has consulted with military experts who told us “Turkey is ready to deploy some 18,000 troops with substantial artillery and air support to occupy a 30-kilometer deep territory across the border running from the city of Jarabulus westward to the city of Azaz. The operation would cover an area under ISIS control, and it would provide a direct military assistance to terrorists and facilitate establishing of a buffer zone for the vestiges of their forces in Northern Syria. It would drastically escalate the tensions with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the predominantly Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). However, the Turkish military is fully capable of completing the first move aimed to push the SAA and the SDF from the aforementioned area and occupy a significant part of Northern Syria.

This step will likely face a hard answer of the Russian military grouping located in the country. The Russian land and navy air-defense systems and fighter jets are fully capable to neutralize the Turkish air force which will allow the Syrian government to counter-attack the Turkish intervention forces. Thus, the anti-terrorist forces will get a chance to exercise a counter-attack which will be likely supported by the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces.”

 UPDATE 4:43 PM Eastern US Time — Turkey has now opened fire with artillery against FOUR separate Geographic zones inside Syria.

UPDATE 4:50 PM Eastern US Time — Qatar-i warplanes Have arrived with Saudi Arabia warplanes at Incirlik Airbase in Turkey — Air Attacks upon Syria deemed “Imminent”

UPDATE 5:58 PM Eastern US Time — Eyewitnesses: The Main highway from Kerch to Simferopol, Crimea is completely LOADED with huge military convoys and trucks carrying VAST amounts of heavy military hardware to the Black Sea Port at Simferopol.  The road has a traffic back-up two-hundred eight kilometers long  (208 KM) made up of 100% military convoys.

UPDATE 6:04 PM Eastern US Time — BREAKING: Turkey confirms that its artillery targeted Syrian regime positions in Latakia  (This is now an actual admission by the sovereign government of Turkey that it has deliberately attacked the forces of the legitimate and sovereign government of Syria.  Without cause or justification, Turkey has begun a war.)

UPDATE 6:11 PM Eastern US Time — Emergency Action Messages (EAM) – the highest priority message in the entire United States Military Command Structure, requiring IMMEDIATE attention and action —  have been broadcasting non-stop for about the last ten minutes on 8992 KHz USB.

      Wow! Thank you! Finally it’s “Before its news”

      Turkey cannot invoke article 5 since they are attacking so NATO will just have to keep its nose out and going to war with Russia will start riots on the streets of Europe.

      Too many people now know that Turkey is not only backing ISIS by buying oil from them but also gave ISIS Saring gas that was used in a false flag attack in Syria back in 2013 and used as an excuse to invade.

      If Mr Putin is smart he will hold his fire until ground troops cross well over the border into Syria and then use tatical nukes if he does not have the men in position to fight the aggressors.

      Less not forget Syria has attacked no one and if killing a few of your own people is to be used as a tried and trusted excuse like in Iraq and Libya then news of Turkey using tank on it’s own people as we speak should turn a few heads in Europe.

      Mr Cameron need taking to court along with Blair for his war crimes and he will need his bunker if russia is forced to attack us in the UK when we know his real motive come in the form of bribes from bankers.

      I just watched the start of Russia Today news and they are only reporting the same as they reported last night and yes i know they along with our own media cannot be trusted because both coporated to cover up the news when Israel bombed Syria a few month ago but in general Russia Today hits the nail on the head.

      This “SuperStation95″ seems to be connected to several posts about this story here today and seems to have a bit of a following so has anyone got something to tell me that i should know about ?

      Today might not be the day after all!

      The political pressure on Christians is increasing worldwide every day. As long as you can still buy Christian books freely,you should use this. The freedom of buying books can very quickly be over, as history has shown often enough. So do not wait to long!

      Catholic english speaking Christians should at least have the following books:

        But in most cases it the so called “Christians” in the USA that are taking bribes from Israel to start these wars.

        Me thinks that religion is a virus of the mind and this migh have something to do with it.

      Over 40 Palestinian homes destroyed in West Bank
      Israeli military forces have demolished more than 40 Palestinian houses and residential structures in the northeastern part of the occupied West Bank as the Tel Aviv regime presses ahead with its land expropriation policies to uproot Palestinians.

        Why do you continually post nonsense gibberish? There is no meaning in the not-quite anagrams you vomit.

    • NWO for Dummies.

      Indeed the nwo retaliates with ferocity when it is challenged. However their ferocity this time will not be enough to halt the effect of the great brain drain from the usa to russia and china this past 20 or so years. In short…. you are out manoevered at every turn and are basically just trying to bring the whole world down with you. But God will not allow it. Putin .. and the wise man from the East (China) will act as the arm of the Almighty as he crushes you in the palm of his hand. Adios Satan, adios NWO, the King is coming.

    • truthseeker4809

      Syria should seriously consider asking ground troops from China and North Korea to help them. Those ferocious guys will kick the asses of the invading forces for sure. Also just make sure they are situated behind the border in Syrian side and do not cross it beyond.

    • truthseeker4809

      You can tell the UN is behind this invasion because they didn’t pass any resolution against this move. Syria is basically f*cked. I hope the Russian air force can destroy the invading troops.

      Dear Mr. Putin:

      If at all possible, please refrain from formally declaring war on the United States until we can get an adult, non-Muslim President in office. I realize the current traitor currently residing in our nicest public housing development is determined to reignite the cold war, or a new hot one, but we don’t all agree with him. Your patience and understanding during this trying time for our nation would be much appreciated. We look forward to a day of mutual respect and peace for our two countries.

      Thank You,
      The Real American People

    • truthseeker4809

      Obviously the Zionists, Vatican, UN and the US are all behind this immoral attack on a sovereign country.
      Seems like those evil entities are motivated by the biblical tragedy that happened to Damascus for self fulfilling prophecy. They have to prove that the bible was correct in predicting the future. The amount of evil perpetrated to the world in the name of Christianity and Judaism is beyond description.

      • NWO for Dummies.

        Yeah right. Like they take their instructions from the Bible. Brainwashed from birth. :cry:

    • Debbie

      Well, this is really too bad….Turkey no doubt is taking orders from Obama, UN and City of London and the Vatican…Putin has shown great restraint so far….but once it really goes hot I don’t think it will be a very long war..they are going to be nuked…I hope Putin saves a nuke for Israel, too……….we just have to worry that dirty Obama will nuke America and blame it on Russia……

      • b4

        yup–it is crazy to consider that Putin might be closer to the american people than our own prez!!!–its just how insane the world has become–probably always has been but now we know the truth…
