Media: Turkish Armed Forces opened fire on Kurdish positions in Syria


According to the channel, the fire was opened from artillery installations from the territory of the bordering Turkish province of Hatay in response to the shelling of Turkish territory.

President Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday said that if "the terrorists in Afrin do not surrender, then Turkey will destroy them."

Ankara considers the SNA and the Syrian Democratic Union party to be a branch of the Kurdistan Workers Party banned in Turkey. Over the past months, Erdogan has repeatedly spoken about the possibility of conducting a military operation against them in the Syrian canton of Afrin.

Earlier, Ankara has repeatedly condemned Washington for military support of the YPG, which Turkey considers a terrorist organization associated with the Kurdistan Workers Party banned in the country.

    Yes, to the Turks, the Kurds are not even a splinter in ... opera, this is a full-fledged scimitar in the back. Our powerful people would now play the Kurdish card in full, but it will not work. We missed too much time, we had to deal with it before. Now there are too many players hanging out.

      No wonder. The Turks are predictable in relation to the Kurds. And they will stab him in the back more than once. But in the Kremlin this is not considered important. The gas pipeline is more important ..

        You do not need to be a mega-analyst to understand that in response to attempts to pit Russia and Turkey in Syria, American friends will suffer.

          Actually blowing back is normal for any country.
          At least the Turks are hammering at those who are hammering at them, and not like Jews - in response to terrorist attacks, they are hammering at those who are fighting against terrorists.
          And there is no adequate solution to the Kurdish-Turkish question. Either the war will smolder, or it will end with one or both sides remaining dissatisfied.
          Turks are our enemies-neighbors. As with neighbors, it is advisable to live peacefully with them (you cannot live in harmony with them, but at least peacefully). As with the enemies, I wish the Kurds success.

          Our military police are in Afrin, and there we seem to be responsible for security. But the Turks want a mess in Afrin. This is exactly what I would not want. Since otherwise we will have to harness against the Turks.
          But those Kurds, to the east, that they squeezed out Omar under the guise, the dam in Tabka and generally spoiled the SAA as they could - it’s not a pity. Only because these rats in their own Americans have already warmed them with complete disgust. But for some reason, the Turks have no complaints about them and do not make any arrivals on them. All the same, Americans are probably afraid to the point of colic.

        Turks are generally predictable, for centuries. And the Kremlin has more than once come up with this behavior - not two, not one and a half. They don’t like this behavior in the East, they take it for weakness. But reconciling the Turks and Kurds is impossible from the word in any way. An exception is a joint business, but this is so, for the time being, as long as the money goes.

        And to us they have repeatedly stabbed in the back.

        Well. the Kurdish problem and Assad and I, here the Turkoman and Kurdish contradictions pour on our mill. But there is the main thing - the discord between the Turks and the Americans in this matter, plus to Gulen and the Kemalists. The contradictions are so serious, especially after the coup, as well as after the Turks left face to face with the Russian Federation, after the downed plane, that Turkey’s membership in NATO became conditional, and the expulsion of German and American contingents is just around the corner.

        Time will tell. And the gas pipeline is just a means to sell what we have. Well, we have been driving gas to Germany through the Druzhba gas pipeline since the 80s, which has been using our gas and was involved in the attack on the USSR in 1941. We destroyed almost the entire European part of Russia, forced us to transport factories inland, destroyed 20 million of our fellow citizens .... Do we strongly believe them? Not! Are we expecting a knife from them in the back? Yes daily! Sanctions are an example. On the other hand, if it is possible to make your enemy dependent on gas supplies, then why not take advantage of such a small amount, and also get real money from them? If almost all the countries of Europe and the Turkic peoples participated in the campaigns on us, then it may be necessary to fence off everyone, burn gas in torches and be content with our truth.? Wars begin and end, governments and politics change, and gas pipelines remain ...

        All Chinese wisdom is so dumb that there is nowhere else to go. So the Chinese were sitting, waiting for the corpse ... now the Dinlin, then the Jurchen, then the Syanbi, then the Manchurian, then the Japanese, at that time it was true that they didn’t have to sit on the shore, but had to plow the invaders, and they thumped, cut off the Chinese noses and took virgins for fun. And if it were not for the USSR and not a Russian soldier, then in Nanjing the samurai would have tempered swords in the Chinese, and so they chopped off the head for fun.

      Turkey will remain the main player. They live nearby. PKK - banned in Turkey. Any mention of Kurds is a sickle in the balls.
      The Turks will crush the Kurds, to the last.

          Americans will politely watch how the Turks urinate the Kurds in Afrin. If they begin to wet in Manbizhde, they can calmly dump from there under some pretext. They can grit their teeth and puke when the Kurds begin to water in the area of ​​Tabka and Raqqa. But Turks will never be allowed to the east - to Haseku, Kamyshly, and especially the oil fields along the Euphrates. Because there the most valuable thing in American life is OIL !!!
