Kurds: Turkish Armed Forces lose more than 200 troops and allies under Afrin

54
The General Staff of the Turkish Armed Forces announced the interim results of operations in the north of Syria. We are talking about the operation "Olive Branch", which the Turkish troops lead against the Kurdish armed detachments in the region of Afrin (Aleppo Province). The report says that during the first days of the operation, the Turkish military eliminated the 394 militant.


By militants, the Turkish military command understands the representatives of the Kurdish armed forces of the YPG, which are actually supported by the United States. It is also stated that among the liquidated by the Turkish army are ISIS terrorists (* prohibited in the Russian Federation).

From the statement of the press service of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Turkey:
The 394 member of the PKK (the militarized wing of the Kurdistan Workers' Party) and the so-called Islamic State (*) are eliminated. The Turkish Air Force destroyed 340 targets of terrorists in northwestern Syria. On the part of the Turkish army, the losses are as follows: three dead, 30 injured. The Syrian Free Army (SSA) lost 13 people killed and 24 wounded.

The Turkish press cites the following interpretations of the operation (interpretation Anadolu):
The Assad troops in 2012 passed Afrin to terrorists practically without a fight, which led to the creation in this city of a center of terrorist activity in the north of the SAR.

The pro-Turkish forces of the SSA in the region of Afrin:


Kurdish information sources call the operation in Afrin "ethnic cleansing" and "genocide of the Kurdish population of Syria." In this case, it is reported that Ankara hides data on real losses. For example, the leadership of the VTS (Syrian Democratic Union) reports that 203 Turkish troops and a representative of the allied forces of Turkey were killed in the Afrin area (talking about the SSA detachments). It is reported that tonight Kurdish troops counterattacked the positions of the Turkish Armed Forces and occupied the village of Chakalya. The Kurdish command calls for the creation of a partisan movement in the territories occupied by the Turkish army.

        Yeah. Why not 2000 or 200 000? Surely the Kurds have their own counting methodology. Unlike others, the Turks are proud of their martyrs, the whole city participates in the funeral! Such an amount is impossible to hide, and there is nothing to it. On the contrary, this will lead to the unity of the nation. In part of the desa, the Kurds even surpassed the Armenians, I look laughing

    The normal rhetoric of the conflict since the Stone Age is to exaggerate the losses of the enemy by an order of magnitude and underestimate their own. other numbers are interesting:
    394 members of PKK (the militarized wing of the Kurdistan Workers Party) and the so-called Islamic State (*) were eliminated. The Turkish Air Force destroyed 340 terrorist targets in northwestern Syria.
    Those. for each target for aviation, about one action movie is of course cool and effective request It cannot but arouse respect and the fact of such an accurate general calculation of enemy losses smile

        - the liberation of the territory from the population, so as not to interfere with the search for oil and Qatari-Saudi pipelines to Europe to pull through Turkey;
        - the neocolonial redivision of the territory and the destruction of Syria as a sovereign state.

    It could be a great success of Russian diplomacy and Russian special services in a clash between Turkey and the United States in Syria. This is a big blow to NATO, which was no less costly as a blow to Russia through Ukraine. It is nullified. But the east is a delicate matter. And the success of American services is also possible. Turkey is directly involved in the Syrian conflict. Now the Kurds are asking for help from Assad and the Russians. They are asking for help but not hoping, and their screech is only to show the world that Assad has lost sovereignty over Kurdish territories and over Kurdish Syrian citizens. Assad’s sovereignty will be issued not only in Afrin, but also in other Kurdish territories. As Putin said, in order to qualify for sovereignty over a certain territory, one must have the ability to protect it. And Assad did not show the possibility of protecting sovereignty. In Afghanistan, Turks or Kurds do not matter, Assad is there there will not be, and each of the two warring countries will have a foundation — I have defended the right over this territory with the blood of my soldiers. But the east is a delicate matter.

      The fact of the matter is that we do not know the backstage arrangements.
      What did you agree with Erdogan? It is possible that he will uncover all Kurdish combat-ready formations and come out. And Assad will be easier to "restore integrity" ... But the fact that the Kurds fired with the brain is for sure, karma, however, for stupidity ...

    Do you want to help the Turks or vice versa the Kurds? There now, on a sober head, you can figure it out.
    Some 6-7 months ago, someone was expecting such discounts. We used to get info that the Turks put their tanks as a target, so that the barmalei would practice shooting at a fixed target .. The Kurds were in a hurry to free more territory, but they would start right away.
