Erdogan: Turkey is not limited to operations in Afrin

24
In the course of the operation “Olive branch” in the north of Syria, the Turkish army will not be limited to the territory of the Kurdish canton of Afrin. As stated by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the army intends to "stop dirty games" and clear the entire border from the presence of Kurdish "terrorists."


Erdogan: Turkey is not limited to operations in Afrin


Having started the operation "Olive Branch", we stopped the games of different forces that want to carry out their plans in our region. Starting from Manbij, throughout our entire border (with Syria), we will completely clear the region of terrorists, ensure our security
- said Erdogan, speaking before the heads of local administrations in Ankara.

According to him, the losses of Turkey and the Syrian opposition during the operation in Afrin amounted to seven or eight people, and the losses of the enemy - 268.

Earlier, the president said that the troops would leave Syria as soon as they reached the objectives of the operation. He noted that Turkey’s actions are directed not against the Kurds, but against the creation of a terrorist corridor.

On January 20, Ankara announced the launch of Operation Olive Branch against Kurdish groups in Afrin, which it considers terrorist. Allies of Turkey were fighters "Syrian Free Army", reports RIA News

      And then Erdogan will receive a full-scale guerrilla warfare along its borders with those countries where Kurds (Iran, Iraq, Syria) compactly plus the blazing "Kurdish" provinces in Turkey itself live. And given the ability of Americans to cultivate internal opposition and military aid to the Kurds, we can assume that Erdogan will finish very poorly ... apparently he should go to a hotel room, book somewhere in Kazan laughing

        So far, everything is going very slowly in Afrin, because the greens, even with the support of artillery, aviation, Turkish special forces and volunteers, have not made much progress.

        And according to Erdogan, these are nothing more than words. States will not allow them to knead Kurds in eastern Syria.

          They do everything right. Their task (the real task) is to drive out more Kurds, and not to seize the territory (although maybe it is somewhere in the brain). Therefore, such a promotion - they took a bp, left a bp, bombed the shot positions, took a bp ... Well and so on in a circle.

        Yes, it will not. The Turks have already screwed down their provinces last year. Syria and Iraq can not fight Turkey with forces and there is no reason. Iran, which is not affected by the war, on its territory will not allow any Kurds to conduct any actions at all - this is trite not in its interests

      Erdogan rejoices early. The Kurds went to the mountains, and he poured out in Turkey.

      We look at the map. We are surprised. It turns out that Turkey makes a corridor along the border, connecting two pro-Turkish enclaves dissected by Athena and separated by it. And if this succeeds, then Turkey may chop off a whole belt along Syria's border from Syria. Erdogan - offset. Israel roughly chopped off the Golan heights from Syria. Empire can only expand.

        Logically, it was not for this that Erdogan entered the army in order to go out, as some broadcast here. Turks still have not left Northern Cyprus. And Israel, following the example of Erdogan, may announce that it will cleanse the Golan when terrorism in Syria is finally defeated! fellow never laughing

    Earlier, before ours took up barmaley along these corridors the oil was transported, it was normal and no one seemed to see anything, but now they have seen.

    Surprisingly, of course, but Turkey is now working for Russia and Assad, forcing the Kurds to seek help from Domask and spit on the mattress. Is this unspoken agreement with the Russian Federation to be carried out to the end !?

    Appetite comes with eating. Only the Sultan is not afraid that the deeper he enters Syrian territory, the more his losses will increase?
    Everything looks like a trap for the Turks - it all starts so smoothly! Americans are happy to drink blood from both the Kurds and the Turks

    The squeezed region will be populated by travel agents, and then through a referendum it will be included in Turkey. By the way. Do you have oil fields in the 30 km zone?

      You can simply proclaim a republic of Turkey, as in Cyprus, and you don’t have to officially attach anything

    And if the Kurds give Lyuli, will the operation fail -NATO or will you kill the United States for help? fool Erdogad will replay himself, and will no longer receive a coup, but a bullet from those who are standing nearby!

    Since the Russian Foreign Ministry does not make statements, the terrorists need it!
