Military Review

Kurds have used a terrible weapon against Turkish "Leopards"

55
The Turkish armed forces, supported by detachments of the Free Syrian Army, with a numerical superiority over the Kurdish formations, took several settlements in the Syrian canton of Afrin. According to Turkish media, the army managed to eliminate a total of almost 560 Kurdish fighters.


Despite the local successes of the Turkish army and the SSA, in most sectors of the front, the Kurds manage to restrain the onslaught of the enemy. According to the pro-Kurdish news agencies, in the course of repelling the attack, female suicide bombers were first involved. One of them self-blew up, destroying the Turkish Leopard tank.

In response to this, Turkish President Recep Erdogan threatened the Kurds with a “full sweep” and also expressed his readiness to “reach the administrative center of the Idlib province”. Given the fact that this entire territory is under the control of the Allied SSA, such actions of the Turks should be regarded as hostile towards the Syrian army.

      What indicators? In battles with direct competitors, he did not participate. The Nazis thought the same thing about the “tigers” and “panthers” - objective indicators seemed convincing, but those tanks didn’t produce furore — ours quickly found the key to those beasts.

        Nothing needs to be kissed, just DON'T boast to the ruling elite of Russia that they “defeated” ISIS: our goal was OPPOSITIONERS Assad (to get strong military bases in Syria), and the Kurds REALLY fought against ISIS!

          Yes, straight pin-pong was, I remember listening to the bulletins. The Americans then took out half of ISIS, made a passage for the Kurds to the city of Raqqa and bombed it on ur. land. There, the Americans, as in Mosul, were forbidden to take photos for the media.

      Some opposition groups fought with ISIS at the same time as ours and the SAA. According to your logic, are they allies to us? This is not to say about such a trifle that the collapse of unions is a common thing after the destruction of a common enemy. The goal of Russia is a single Syria, the goal of the Kurds is an independent Kurdistan on a solid piece of Syrian territory. Goals, to put it mildly, incompatible And that says it all.

      Let me remind you that the British were allies in the anti-Hitler coalition, but within a month they were ready to start a war with the USSR and only a miracle (a ride in Churchill’s elections) stopped the continuation of the 2nd World War, but already together with Germany against the USSR. The Kurdish leaders had a choice: either support for the ATS, or together with the United States against the ATS and the Russian Federation - they made their choice, but this is their choice, not the Russian Federation!

      The fact is that initially the Kurds agreed on wide Kurdish autonomy, but this was not enough for the Kurds, because they betrayed Assad and Russia, spreading to the mattress, which they armed and threw as a result. So they are reaping the fruits of their stupidity and betrayal!

    Given the fact that this entire territory is controlled by the allied SSA, such actions by the Turks should be considered as hostile to the Syrian army.
    I don’t get it. SSA is a Syrian free army, Assad has a SAA-Syrian Arab army that opposes the SSA ... How will the actions of the Turks be hostile to the SAA?

    It is a pity that this Islamic fascist, Putin’s friend Erdogan, was not eliminated during the Turkish coup.
    How much can you endure this double standard face of Erdogan who lies so much
    The thief shouts, keep the thief. Erdogan himself helped and created our Muslim brother by the so-called Islamic caliphate and still helps, and now he allegedly shouts a barotte from a terrorist. It's all a bluff. guess what he wants in the end - in the end Erdogan himself goes, He thinks all go
