    And then what? The Turkish military will leave? It’s unlikely .. This is their matter of principle, to fight with the Kurds .. Although they claim that they are at war with the terrorists ..

          For CAA and IG it is a sweet dream. But the United States, which helped take Manbij, would say to the Turks "Sit !!!" and they will sit. This is nothing more than verbal diarrhea.

            Yes, they don’t need a team either, they’ll have to drive out ....
            I’m just wondering if the Turks are going to populate the land freed from the Kurds not by Turks, but by Arabs, then where will they recruit so many Arabs? all are already in the geyropu migrated ....

      Honestly, I don’t know, I should ask the General Staff. But they are unlikely to answer me. Maybe Zhirik will give out military secrets.

    Oh, I will gladly look at the zarube between the Turks and the Kurds. Interesting from a military point of view. Although I doubt that there will be a full-scale assault, the Americans need the Kurds for now.

    There is already a "dump" begins. All against everyone.
    Syrian army takes control of 4 settlements near Al-Bab and clashes with Turkish troops in battle
    On Sunday morning, the Tigers special forces took the city of Tadef liberated after heavy clashes by ISIS. Over the past week, Syrian aviation and artillery, as well as aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces, literally bombarded this settlement with shells and bombs, thereby paving the way for Tiger Force fighters making their way into the city. Government forces are located only 8 kilometers from Kurdish militias (the “Syrian Democratic Forces - SDF), holding positions under the city of Manbij. At this time on the outskirts of al-Bab, clashes broke out between the army men and the pro-Turkish militants of the "Shield of the Euphrates." Turkish troops supported their wards with fire. Syrian army fighters in Tadef are just one kilometer from Al Bab and can use Tadef as a launch pad in the direction of the Turkish forces that hold the former ISIS stronghold, writes the Arabian AMN agency. At present, it is not clear whether the troops will receive orders to attack the Turks in Al-Bab, or will perform other tasks.

    The Turks say they put 22 a Syrian there, but Damascus responds about exaggerated losses. Clashes and clashes have already begun.

    "Glorious will be the hunt"

    The Turkish army repeats the feat of the Russian sample of the 99th year, when the United Group of Forces entered the line named after Lenin - p. Terek.
    The purpose of the war for the Turks:
    - buffer zone on the border of Turkey and the ATS (width and depth to be specified);
    - take control of the river. Euphrates and dams on it.

    Apparently, before taking Mambidge for at least another six months, or even a year. During this time, it will still change a thousand times. The Turks - they are still scum, there will probably be shelling of the SAA, and even of our troops. So far, under our pressure, they are hypocritically laughed, like bastards, they say, “Harash Ruskei, we will do everything,” but this is a distracting maneuver. Putyan, in vain did they let them into Syria - it's like a goat in the garden.

      Whoever asked him (do not overestimate the forces of the Russian Federation), closer to summer, NATO’s brigade tactical groups will appear in the north, north-east and east of the ATS.

      In the future, the Russian Federation will control one of the parts of the SAR (its coast on the Tartus-Latakia line), perhaps in the future a separate Alafite state will be created.

      The configuration of the ATS with its extended borders was initially not adapted to defense even in the best years of the ATS, so I think the ATS will have to put up with the loss of the northern, eastern and northeastern provinces forever (this was the goal of the United States and Turkey, not the overthrow of Assad )
