Damascus forces surround Turkish army this the "Turk Ft. Apache" moment?

via AFP News.
Syrian government forces surrounded a Turkish military observation post in the northwest on Friday after overrunning neighbouring towns, upping the stakes with Ankara in its Russian-backed offensive against the jihadist-ruled Idlib region.

Ankara vowed on Tuesday that it would not abandon any of 12 observation posts it established in the region under a deal with Damascus ally Moscow last and warned the Syrian government "not to play with fire".
Story here. 

Hmm.  Did I miss something?  I thought the "play with fire" remark was in response to action against a Turk convoy.  Now we see this.  Things are a bit dicey I'm betting.

The sad part?

Games are being played on a nation state level in Syria and men are dying with no idea why.
