46
Russia will withdraw its troops from the Syrian city of Afrin in order to avoid a collision with Turkish army units that are going to launch an operation against the Kurds in northern Syria. This was stated by the Minister of Defense of Turkey Nurettin Janikli, reports AMN with reference to the newspaper A Haber.


Media: Russian troops will leave Afrin before the advance of the Turks


The threat against Turkey is growing every day. We will carry out this operation and defeat terrorism.
- the politician said.

According to Anadolu agency, there are currently thousands of YPG militants in Afrin from 8 to 10 (Kurdish militias in Syrian Kurdistan affiliated with the Kurdish Workers Banned in Turkey).

Turkey has previously led its troops on the border with Syria on high alert. When Ankara plans to launch an invasion is not specified.

The Syrian authorities said they would regard any attack by the Turkish military on Kurdish forces as an act of aggression and a violation of international law, and also promised to shoot down the Turkish fighters.

        If we left, this is not so bad, the main thing is that the Turks force the USA to get out of this part of Syria, and Putin will agree with Erdogan!

          They have never been there. They are beyond the Euphrates in hundreds of kilometers. If the Sultan goes to Manbij, then it’s interesting. Formally, in Manbij SDF - that is, the forces officially supported by the United States.

          In Arfin, ordinary Kurds are not included in the SDF and are not supported by the United States. And they are surrounded by broads in Idlib, the Syrian Army in the south in Aleppo, and pro-Turkish broads in Dabik and northern Aleppo. It is amazing that they waited so long to nullify the Arfinsky. They were going to level them back last fall.

                Well now it will grow! The entire green territory in the north of Syria, formally, is under the moderate, but the Turks rule there - now Afrin will be cleared by connecting the northern territories with Idlib

            This area, in principle, the Turks outlined for themselves (because Assad was so excited).
            Instead of Kurds, they will be settled by their Turkoman. And the area adjoins the city of Aleppo.
            Which historically gravitates toward Turkey more than Syria. A significant part of Aleppo will gladly change their passport to Turkish.

          hi , Alexander.
          The Turks began their gambit in the north of Syria, and previously coordinated their actions with the Russian Federation (and in some media - agreed with the United States). Some kind of cunning trick Erdogan. It seems that Turkish shelling and bombing will not affect the deployment of Americans.

      Erdogan, of course, is an American puppet.
      Maybe Putin and throw again.
      Now he is dancing, and then he will say - well, I won’t withdraw the troops and that’s it.
      Matrasnikov will launch this territory and all things, as it seems to him.
      However, such a game is dangerous for him. Then a completely different conversation will be with him. He understands this.
      So, it’s kicking the Kurds right now, so that they reduce their ardor and impudence a little, become more negotiable with the Turks, with Assad, and with us. And most importantly, they stopped being friends with the Americans.
      Then the Turks will go back to their place, as for the first time. Here you have the whole Putin plan.
      However, there is one catch. They know all this cuisine and the USA and can greatly interfere and fail.
      They will again freeze some very bad villainy in order to confuse Putin.
      Let's see what kind of pawn they will throw into battle this time.
      I think Israel is involved. To distract us from Erdogan. He sat there for the Golan. Enough for the Jewish soldiers to drink beer and trade weapons and organs with ISIS.
      It's time for the Tsakhalovsk meat to be put into a meat grinder to destroy the "Hated terrorist Assad, who once again, now has used chemical weapons against Israel!" Well or there: Put it to Hezbollah, who applied it by Assad’s secret order, and therefore an air strike on the SAA and (this is no longer for the protocol, ichtamnet). "
      Something like this, for example.

      The United States has already given an official position - what will happen to the Arfins, they do not care. If they run into the SDF, then there will be a reaction.
      The US coalition believes that the operation of Turkey against the Kurds outside their area of ​​responsibility
      The zone of the military operation declared by Ankara against Kurdish units in the area of ​​the settlement Afrin in Syria is outside the responsibility of the international coalition under US command. This was announced to reporters in Brussels by the representative of the headquarters of the operation Inherent Resolve ("Unshakable Determination") in Iraq and Syria, US Army Colonel Ryan Dillon. He is in Brussels as part of the American delegation to the session of the NATO Military Committee, which includes the chiefs of general staffs of the alliance countries.

      "The announced [Turkish] operation zone is outside the coalition’s responsibility," he answered the question whether the US supports the Turkish operation against the Kurds. Ankara considers them to be terrorists, however, Kurdish units supported the American coalition in ground combat in Iraq and Syria. Dillon also confirmed that the military situation in the region will be discussed by the participants in the meeting of the NATO Military Committee.

        The Turk is interested in the genocide of the Kurds. Sdf linked to Athens Kurds. There are many relatives there. If the United States does not restrain the Turks, then they will receive a wedge between themselves and sdf. On the one hand, it’s good, on the other - I’m not so cynical as to want blood, although I don’t have any sympathy for Kurds.

    The Syrian authorities said they would regard any attack by the Turkish military on Kurdish forces as an act of aggression and a violation of international law, and also promised to shoot down the Turkish fighters.

      Syrians can say a lot, but not a fact.
      in fact, the Syrians simply make statements about the future legend that they didn’t cheat the Kurds, they are the Turks, and they the Syrians were very much for the Kurds, they were worried because of all their strength, and they were even going to fight for them, but they could not, well, or didn’t have time .

      Kurds in Russia do not care. They will accept help, maybe they will even say thanks, and tomorrow they will forget what they called. Friendly relations with them were not and will not be, if only neutrality. But we, assisting them, worsened relations with all states of the region.

          I think that Damascus is officially indignant, threatening, but will not enter into an armed clash with the Turks. Turks, too, of certain "shores" will not cross. They will exterminate the Kurds as far as possible and return to themselves. While Russia patronizes Syria, the Turks will not occupy its territory. In the absence of Russia, the Turks would have bitten off a bold piece from their neighbor.

        You think that because of the Kurds, the Americans will break off relations with the Turks. If the Turks are completely tied to America and Europe and it will not go anywhere, they have one goal in relation to Russia, then in the union of the Kurds we can stop the appetite of one or the other.

            Yes, they do not digest each other, but the goal unites them. The Turks are slowly but surely moving towards the goal, and this does not depend on Erdogan or Gulen, these two .... have their own way. And the political scientist recently announced on TV from Turks and Cavturs on TV.

            And the Americans will use Kurds against Shiites. Now, if the Americans create an independent Syrian Kurdistan, then it will be interesting.

Syria will remain whole, indivisible, united. And there will be a legitimate legitimate president of Syria, elected by the people of Syria by the Syrians-Bashar Assad. And Syria, the people of Syria, the Syrians will and will be friends with Russia Russian Orthodox Christian, Russian Orthodox Christians, the people of Russia Russian Orthodox. And if necessary, they will want to, will be part of Russia.
    And remember, no one will snatch anything from Syria. And all who will be impudent, Syria and Russia, will be destroyed.
    Turkey now acts in Syria, only with the permission of Russia, Russian Orthodox Christian, Russian Orthodox Christians. As the official Russian mass media told you all, and explained that the Kurds went under the United States against Syria and against Bashar al-Assad.
