Turkish News Agency Anadolu reports that the general staff of the country's armed forces issued an order to bring troops on the border with the Syrian Arab Republic into a state of increased combat readiness. Such measures are associated with a possible operation in Syrian Afrin (Aleppo Province), which is controlled by Kurdish armed forces.

Earlier, official Ankara declared that the armed Kurdish troops threatened the security of Turkey, and that the army could launch a military operation at any time.

Over the past few days, dozens of armored vehicles have been deployed to the Syrian border, including Tanks. So, in Hatay province an additional 9 tanks of the Turkish Armed Forces were deployed.

It is noted that a strike on the positions of the Kurdish Self-Defense Units (YPG) Turkey may strike in the near future. We are talking about hitting YPG positions in the area of ​​Manbij and Afrin. For this, Turkey is preparing a military Aviation. At the moment, about 150 targets have already been identified for air strikes.

It is noteworthy that the Turks are concentrating their forces in the province of Idlib, from where it is also planned to strike at Kurdish troops in the province of Aleppo. Thus, the province of Idlib becomes for the Turkish army a springboard for solving the tasks of the Turkish leadership in Syrian territory.

      You can’t drive the Turks out of there later, just like the Americans. That is, there is simply a seizure of the territory with further accession to itself. Syria can forget about the north and north-east of their country.

    The Athenian Kurds, at this stage, have only one way. And this path is the surrender of all the territories they conquered to Assad. And the faster, the better.

        Hi hi ! The Athenian diaspora of the Kurds are well related to Assad, as are the Aleppo Kurds, who are fighting in the army of the SAR. This will be the most reasonable solution for them. The UN will definitely not help them, and the mattress has already disowned them.

    An interesting move by a horse. If the Turkish aviation successfully fulfills their goals, I think the Kurds, Assad will bow to bow.

    The Kurds have driven themselves into a dead end.
    We decided to create a cloak, to create Kurdistan, with the support of amers in exchange for their loyalty and in the hope that at the right time they distance themselves from amers. They just went too far (seriously angry with the Turks), now any attempt to abandon the US government and patronage will be suppressed (by the same amers) through the intensification of hostilities from Turkey.
    I don’t know, maybe I’m wrong, but for the Kurds now is not the best time to create an independent Kurdistan, because it will cause war with all neighbors. But the amer on the contrary, it is beneficial.

        And someone wants to profit from these conflicts, well, like, since it happened, I’ll improve the conditions for an independent Kurdistan, I will loan oil fields (using the support of the states), for one corridor land to Jordan, then I’ll declare independence. But it did not grow together with the corridor, so it makes sense to postpone the declaration of independence and bargain for full autonomy within Syria. And the Americans can now rest ... only the Americans will not let the Kurds crawl away, they will give the Turks green light. If the Kurds become more accommodating, submit to the states, then the Turks will temporarily light a red light. But in any case, everyone will end the Kurdish war. In short, the Amers need war, the Kurds were their warriors, the Kurds want to be leaked, the Americans say it's too late ... to fight.
        And yes, Israel is also interested in the Kurds fighting, otherwise they will fight. Israel is the last thing Americans throw into battle for their interests.
