Erdogan threatens Syrian Kurds military operation in Afrin

48
The Turkish President spoke about the situation in the north of Syria. His speech was devoted to strengthening the position of the Syrian Kurds. According to Erdogan, Turkish patience is coming to an end. Statement by the Turkish President leads RIA News:
Our patience towards those who are trying to create a terrorist corridor is running out. Every day, it is becoming increasingly clear goals in Syria and Iraq. We do not have to endure this lie. We have the strength to expand the actions launched in the framework of Operation Euphrates Shield.



Erdogan threatens Syrian Kurds military operation in Afrin


Under the "terrorist corridor" official Ankara means the territories that are occupied by Syrian armed units in the north of Syria - near the borders with Turkey. Operation “Euphrates Shield”, which was once positioned as an operation “helping the Syrian population in the fight against ISIS (* banned in the Russian Federation), is now confirmed by Erdogan himself, the real goal was to squeeze the Syrian Kurds away from the Turkish borders even transferring the border of Turkey to the interior of the northern provinces of the SAR.

In his speech, Erdogan stated that a forceful Turkish operation is possible in the Syrian city of Afrin, where there are detachments of the so-called Syrian Democratic Union. The President of Turkey stated that a threat was coming from the VTS to the Turkish address. The piquancy of the situation is that the VTS is actively supported by the United States of America.

          Anyone who loves their homeland will be unpleasant with all this short-sighted policy of the Russian authorities and generals. This time more than one pilot may die. And that your idol will again scare Erdogan with tomatoes? But this is only for TV lovers, there was a ban on Turkish agricultural products. In Moscow, in all stores, Turkish zucchini and tomatoes were lying on shelves without hiding.

            Maybe they’ve left at the moment. But at the end of the summer they entered, organized several observation points, including on the demarcation line with the Turks and their extortioners.

        The interest of Russia and Assad is that the hot heads of the Syrian Kurds should cool. And no matter who cools them - the Turks or the Assad troops. The main thing is that they have lost the desire to think about independence in collaboration with the United States.

          And no matter who cool them
          maybe, but that's not my opinion, but a person. which is more professional in the subject.
          Apparently, in Idlib, the Turks did not limit themselves to expressing concern to the Iranian and Russian ambassadors, but also carried out purely practical activities. The "moderate" militants gained a joint command (it is still difficult to say situational or they finally managed to overcome their differences), from 7 to 10 thousand militants Ahrar al-Sham and SSA were mobilized and transferred to the combat zone, the Turkish military themselves regrouped in their Idlib zone . Well, now the "moderate" is open unlimited ammunition. Who supplies them is a terrible secret.

          The result is an increasingly tangible turning point in battles. Syrian and Iranian proxies are still forced to stop the attack, and the local ISIS intervened in everything else. It’s hard to say how it will end. Assad has collected everything that he has left for the offensive, so Turkish proxies have a difficult task.

          The war in northern Syria, as in the year 15, is waged between Russia and Turkey through their mercenaries. Given the determination of the Turks as early as 15, it is difficult to assume that they would suddenly allow the Kremlin in 18 to do anything without any problems. In any case, the problems are guaranteed that the Turks demonstrate: apparently, it was they who stood behind the demonstrative attack on Khmeimim, now they provide all possible assistance to “their” militants in the formally Russian and Iranian de-escalation zones.

          In principle, everything is correct: Turkey has national interests, and it is concerned about security in the territories adjacent to it. The Turks simply, without special ceremonies, simply defend their interests and basta. If necessary, they are unlikely to hesitate to shoot down someone else's plane or blow up a base or two of their partner.

      You confuse the Kurds who support the United States and the Kurds from Afrin. These are different areas. Now that the SAA is crushing the militants in Idlib near Erdogan, it’s burning up that several cordons on its border control the Kurds and through them they cannot help their own in Idlib.

    The Syrian army got carried away with the fight against militants and was stabbed in the back 
    Several Islamist groups immediately launched an offensive against the positions of the Syrian government forces in the province of Idlib. This was announced on Thursday, January 11, by the Directorate 4 Telegram channel, which monitors the activities of terrorists.

    According to the channel, while the main forces of the Syrian army are engaged in an offensive at the Abu Dukhur airbase, the militants have managed to recapture more than a dozen settlements in southern Idlib. In particular, the Failak al-Sham, Jaysh Idlib Khur, Jaysh Nukhba and Nureddin al-Zinki groups took part in the attack.

    As noted by Directorate 4, thanks to the support of Turkey, the militants operating in the region are well armed: they have at their disposal not only machine guns and assault rifles, but also Turkish-made armored vehicles, as well as several BMP-1s and a T-72 tank.

    But the Turks just shot down (after repeated warnings) our plane. Moreover, both pilots catapulted over Syrian territory.
    And on July 10, 1992, Armenian soldiers in the center of Gyumri (Leninokan), by order of General Abrahamyan, shot five of our paratroopers point-blank. Lieutenant Alexander Shapovalov, sergeants Yevgeny Poddubnyak, Oleg Yudintsev, privates Mikhail Karpov, Nikolai Maslennikov were killed. And so far (unlike Turkey) - have not apologized.
