Turkish army again fired on Syrian Kurds in the Afrin area


It is reported that YPG forces last night attacked populated areas in the Syrian Azaz border with Turkey, firing rockets at populated areas controlled by the opposition Free Syrian Army. The armed forces of Turkey, stationed in the northern regions of Syria, controlled by them as a result of Operation Euphrates Shield, as well as in the de-escalation zone in Idlib, YPG objects in Afrin were shelled in response.

Turkish media have reported shelling by the Turkish Armed Forces under YPG-controlled territory in Afrin for the third day in a row. Turkey also sent another convoy of military equipment, including Tanksto the border with Syria.

Shelling on Saturday was made during the hours when Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said that the Turkish army could launch an operation in the Manbidj and Afrin regions controlled by the YPG within a week. According to Erdogan, the United States sent 4,9 thousands of trucks to Syria for YPG and about 2 thousands of aircraft with weapons. 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, reports RIA News

    ... The Turkish army again fired on the positions of the Syrian Kurds in the Afrin region ...

    Situevina with the Turks in Syria is twofold.
    But!
    Given that the Kurds are also the same weathervanes, then a Turkish crack will not hurt them!
    Moreover, our sworn counterterrorism partners crammed the ranks of the "Free Syrian Army" with all kinds of unfinished ISIS rabble.
    By the way, no more than a few days ago, in Manbij, members of the security service of the "Syrian Democratic Forces" were executed by decapitating two local residents. So how do “offended” Kurds differ from ISIS’s cannibals? Absolutely nothing. The same thugs.

      "Given that the Kurds are also the same weathervanes, then a Turkish crack will not stop them!"

      Recently, a conference was held in Brussels on the topic “The Role of Kurds in the Armenian Genocide”, the main speaker of which was Recep Marashli ... Part III “The 1915 Genocide” is entirely devoted to the concept of genocide, its implementation and its consequences. The act of deportation and its implementation, the political responsibility of genocide lies with:

      - The ruling political party in 1915 “Unity and Progress”;

      - A specialized organization formed of killers and criminals of all kinds released from prison for this purpose - Teskilat-Mahsusa;

      - The Hamidiye of Kurdish forces, created by Sultan Abdul-Hamid, to whom the government gave the authority to kill, steal and rob Armenians - Hamidiye Alaylari;

      - German military presence in Turkey. "

      Not everything is so simple in those places, historical shackles on all sides .. and it hurts to slaughter alive ..
      The Syrian Kurds have one hope - for the revival of strong power in Syria. Which can protect them from the threat from Turkey

        All right, say it. I agree.
        But! There is a nuance.
        Kurds under the guise, hiding behind mattresses, occupied territories NEVER belonging to them! Purely "by chance" in these territories were the largest oil fields in Syria ...
        The same Manbij, there have never been Kurds there, these territories are exclusively Arab people! Kurds are now being mastered there by fire and sword ...
        If the strong power you are talking about is reborn in Syria, then the Kurds will be kicked out of these territories. Not the fact that they will not be presented for executions of the local population. You cannot ask for protection by gnawing part of the country ...

        Victor hi .... Kurds are now pro-American, because. mattresses recognized the referendum on secession (Crimean did not recognize and do not recognize, I wonder, huh?) ... the striped policy comes down to the division of Syria, despite all their declarations of integrity .... And the SDA is generally a repainted, unfinished igil .. .so let Osman Pasha fuck them

          Andrei hi Kurds are also all different; there are Iraqi, there are Turkish, there are Syrian, there are Iranian and even we have a lot of Kurds in the Caucasus - he still has a “vinaigrette” and it’s very difficult to figure out all the intricacies.

            that's right yes and the region itself is a club of contradictions and a wide variety of interests ... without a glass, you certainly can’t figure it out

                one of the politicians said: war is the continuation of politics, and politics is the continuation of the economy .... so without profit nowhere ... not only material

      I put on the Americans - they will achieve their goal even if the Kurds run out.

    It’s hard to say who will beat the corpses on both sides and get tired over time. There will be no winner in this war. And Erdogan will ask Russia for help, motivating an indirect struggle with the states.

    The Turks will drive the Kurds out of Manbij, it is possible from Afrin, and not even poke around east of the Euphrates.
