Turkish President Erdogan Begs Donald Trump For Help Against Russia

Published

on

The United States could supply Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM) to Turkey due to the worsening situation of Ankara in the Syrian province of Idlib. This was stated by the Minister of National Defense of Turkey – Hulusi Akar.

Helpless Turkey Fighting A Losing Battle Against Russia-Backed Bashar-Al Assad?

Earlier, Turkey requested the U.S. to deploy two Patriot missile-defence batteries on its southern border to prevent any future attacks by Russian-backed Syrian troops according to Bloomberg.

The declaration was almost instantly followed on Thursday by a spate of violence that left two Turkish soldiers dead and five wounded in Idlib, emphasizing the risks as two adamant powers assert their influence in northwestern Syria.

Tensions Between Russia & Turkey Escalates; US Provoking Ankara To Scrap S-400 Deal?

The total number of Turkish soldiers killed in the Idlib area over the last three weeks has increased to 15 as pro-government forces, supported by Russian airpower, attempt to overwhelm the last major pocket of opposition to President Bashar al-Assad.

The official, according to Bloomberg, said Turkey could use F-16 fighter jets to strike units loyal to Assad in Idlib if the Patriots were deployed in Hatay on Turkey’s border to provide protection.

US Keen To Support NATO-Ally Turkey From Joint Syrian, Russian Offensive?

“There may be a Patriot battery support,” from the U.S., Turkey’s Defense Minister Hulusi Akar told CNN-Turk television in an interview on Thursday. If there is similar support from European allies, Turkey would consider it too, he said.

“Turkey is determined to use force to ensure a cease-fire in Idlib,” Akar said. “Russia should not intervene in Turkey’s actions in Idlib, Turkey has no intention to face off with Russia.”
