The latest incursion by Turkey didn’t deter the Syrian Arab Army from continuing its task and restoring a vital airport that can be used to support all the SAA and its allies military operations and logistics in the north and especially the northwest of Syria. We are still looking forward to the liberation of Meng Airbase which will turn the whole calculations upside down for NATO, their regional stooges and their mercenary terrorist groups.
