Turkey does not exclude the possibility that the Olive Branch operation in Afrin in northwestern Syria will be followed by new ones, said the head of the Turkish Foreign Ministry Mevlüt авavuşoлуlu in an interview with France TV 24


Turkey announced new military operations in Syria


According to him, Ankara is considering the possibility of conducting an operation in Manbij, also under the control of Kurdish formations.

Afrin's release from terrorists is very important. In Afrin, terrorists of ISIS are also operating, who are trying to cross the border to commit terrorist acts in Turkey and other countries, including France.
- said Cavusoglu.

The Minister stressed that the "Olive Branch" is directed against the IS * and the Kurdish "Party of the Democratic Union" and "Popular Self-Defense Detachments". He noted that another threat to Turkey comes from the Manbij area.

Wherever the threats come from, Turkey must eliminate their sources. Now our goal is the position of terrorists in Afrin, but in the future operations can be organized in other areas of Syria
- said the Turkish minister.

On the eve of the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan first announced that his country is not going to be limited to operations in Syrian Afrin. He stressed that the Turkish army intends to restore order along the entire border of the country.

    As I understand it, they warn the ally (United States) in advance to remove their specialists. With all the harsh statements, Erdogan is still not ready to make a real confrontation with the Americans. Yes, and it won’t work.

      - It would be worth Erdogan to think when after the coup the army shredded. And then there are problems with the Americans, and the army is bloodless with purges. And then the Kurds are already beating the Turkish pack - feathers are flying. No matter how disgraced again, "strategist".

      Yes, the United States has long been in the know. This is a warning to the Kurds, voiced throughout the world, so that they do not say that they did not hear.

        Farther? Here - A Syrian soldier from Idlib, who was one of the defenders of the 2015 Abu al-Duhur air base besieged in XNUMX, prays and kisses the ground at a liberated base after militants were knocked out of there (C)

        Boom knock and free. And let the Kurds pray. We offered them, they refused. Well, stupidity and greed are the most expensive and incompatible with normal life things, especially in war.

        Judging by the map, it’s not enough for the Kurds. They are already asking to take them back under the wing of the SAA and VKS, but they are not asking officially ... well, proudly - the will and Ottomans with tanks, planes and artillery in the forehead. plus all the pro-Turkish gangs that Erdogan gathered in a bunch.

          Yes, I agree with you, and if Turkey squeezes the United States out of Syria, then it will be easier for us.

        ... the hike the farther into the forest, the meaner the partisans, and therefore the Turks cannot avoid skirmishes with the merikatos ...

            ... and then the fun may begin ... I suppose the Turks have long wanted to find a reason to get out of the custody of the mericatos, or even seem to themselves like that ... that will be their reason ...

    Turks did not recognize the Armenian Genocide - well, there wasn’t such a thing in history.
    It will be the same, and now they will squeeze out the Kurds, terrorists (cross out the necessary) and populate the Turks with all the consequences - either autonomy or subsequent accession to Turkey as a result of the free expression of the will of the population.

    Now this ethnic variety of the Kurds can rely only on themselves, well, maybe on the Americans. And in the Russian Federation - the engine left:
    Last week, Gazprom received the final formal permission of the Republic of Turkey to build the second string of the offshore section of the pipeline to the Turkish coast. The fact that this was a formality is evidenced by a simple fact: several hundred kilometers of the gas pipeline had already been laid on the offshore section by this time.

    In addition, it is reported that in the coming year, Gazprom plans to increase investment in the “southern route” almost twice as compared to the previous year, 2017, to 182,4 billion rubles.

      Actually, the second branch is for export to Europe and ours said that they would build it only after guarantees from the EU, which would not work like with Bulgaria.
      In general, the second branch is important, but ours, without guarantees from the EU, would not build it. Perhaps this is why recently the Ukrainian delegation was asked to exit and there was an explosion in Austria on a gas hub .... that the United States bought liquefied in Russia ... in general, rhetoric is rhetoric but the cold is not khukh mukhra)))

    Afrin is a compact Kurdish region, if I am not mistaken there are about 1,5 million there, so there is all this mess for a long time, as in Afghanistan. No one will hinder the Kurds from moving on to partisan tactics of action - during the day they are civilians, and at night they are Peshmerga.

    Ankara is considering the possibility of an operation in Manbij

    Blah blah blah. All this angry rhetoric should cover up a conspiracy between Turkey and the USA on Turkish aggression against Kurds.
