The military situation in Syria: Turkish forces captured from the Kurds MANPADS "Igla"

14
Turkey-supported militants of the Free Syrian Army announced the seizure of the Igla man-portable air defense systems from the Kurds. Corresponding video confirmations they posted on the network. With similar systems, the Kurds shot down a Turkish helicopter in May 2016. Earlier, the media reported that the Americans had supplied Kurdish units in the Afrin area with portable air defense systems. However, until today for these data have not been confirmed.


Turkish forces continued their offensive against the Kurds in the Syrian canton and took control of a key height in the Kurna mountains. In battles for heights actively used Tanks "Leopard".

Suffering defeat, the Kurds began negotiations with the Russian authorities in the hope of stopping the operation of the Turkish Armed Forces. At the same time, the Kurds intend to maintain friendly relations with the United States. Such an alignment seems to be hardly realizable.

          The United States will transfer Kurds from other regions, and then they will also create their own base. Then it will be bad for everyone.

            And Turkey? The United States has kind of disowned the Kurds.

            "Yes, you are right, but the reverse is also possible."

            Kurds in Afrin are already being pulled from everywhere. The more they gather in Afrin, the faster Assad will take the oil fields from the Kurds.
            And the Turks will fight in Afran to the stop. The Turks will have more resources than the Kurds, sooner or later they will send them to bow to Assad. It is not even so important who will win there, in any case, either Kurds or Turks will go to Assad.

                There, all the moves were calculated, they counted on the arithmometer for three days before starting the Turks in Afrin. And they, the fools, were happy, in the hope of all volume ..., well, in the sense of getting practical benefits for free.

            In this situation, the Turks of the Engerlik can stick out, which will not be so bad.

    Kurds are probably the most cunning, so they still do not have their own state. Who will allow them to drag American bandits into the region ?!
