The Turkish Air Force 10 February with air attacks during the operation "Olive Branch" hit 19 targets - shelters, firing points, warehouses with weapons PYD (Kurdish Democratic Union), YPG (Kurdish Self-Defense Forces) and IG (banned in the Russian Federation) terrorist organizations. The aircraft participating in the operation returned safely to the bases. 86 terrorists liquidated, since the start of the operation - 1266,
says release.

On the eve of the agency reported 11 Turkish soldiers killed in Afrin during the day, including the time of the crash of the ATAK helicopter on the border with the SAR. Thus, yesterday the Turkish army suffered the biggest losses for the entire period of the operation. In total, 30 died and more than 70 military personnel were injured during the hostilities in Afrin.

Recall the operation "Olive branch" against the Kurdish formations in Afrin began on January 20. Along with the Turkish troops there are detachments of the "Syrian Free Army" (PAS). Official Damascus strongly condemned the actions of the Turkish Armed Forces, stating that Afrin is an integral part of Syria.

    ... The Ministry of Defense of Turkey told about the progress of the operation in Afghanistan ...

    The operation in Afrin is with varying success.
    With varying success in the information field, the Turks will destroy 100500 terrorists (by which we mean exclusively the Kurds), destroy them with the hands of other terrorists, then the Kurds will burn 1000 and one Turkish tank.
    And on the earth - both those and those goofing Syria, only under various pretexts.

      This once again proves not the viability of the Assad regime, the same Turks as at home. Unfortunately, Russia repeats the mistakes of the Kremlin elders. Russia will not be able to "hold on bayonets" forever to hold the territory of Syria, as soon as it weakens its military presence, militants will return to the previously repelled territories and everything will be repeated. Who does not believe, see news about Afghanistan.

        Oppa! This is your conclusion!
        It’s truly American - to get into a dish shop, turn everything into rubbish there and blame the shopkeeper that the dishes are of poor quality.
        You make it clear to us that the United States is in Syria, that you are going to teach Russia all the trouble.
        Leave from there and everything will be settled there, where the geldings will not turn - everywhere devastation.

            Listen, "a connoisseur of history" - good to lie and teach.
            You can’t figure out your own history, and you start the trunk to learn the history of the people who created their state a thousand years earlier.
            The troops withdrew from Afghanistan politics. CA, unlike mattresses, hemp plantations (which for some reason increased tenfold) were not guarded. And the Mujahideen, when we were there, were hiding in the gorges, and not openly rummaging around. The SA fought, not show-offs, because of the fences of the camps it showed.

          I would say that the official states climbed on their own rake that the United States planted for the USSR in Afghanistan. But there are not official US forces that control drug trafficking and arms trafficking among the barmaley. For the latter, everything is going fine so far, as far as one can judge.

            This is thanks to our border guards and from the CIS, they do not stick, but no one yells about the successful conduct of each operation. And so on a regular basis, loaded rods, where it is interesting they produced so many substances. This is not chemistry with a laboratory, but natures it is necessary to grow its product in a banal way. Your compatriots raised this shobla in Afghanistan, but it didn’t manage to manage, you can control a lot of territories there. Ours could do nothing, they built the infrastructure, even those who fought against us have a different view of the situation. You yourself are arming inadequate, then you are fighting intensely against them. Assad will be in power for how long, and Venda can agree with the Turks, although they are Imperials, they are just the same Arabs.

        And what does the Assad regime have to do with this? No matter how these lands were still under the regime, negotiations were ongoing with the Kurds, and until the Kurds recognize themselves as the state of Syria, what right do they have to protect themselves from Turkey. But it’s exactly the United States that leads the country to collapse, not Assad or Russia, but Assad will be to blame for anyone.
        I remembered where I heard it, this is our Israeli users constantly talydychat! If the barmalei fired at them - the Syrian regime is guilty, the troops of the Syrian regime are there or not, it doesn’t matter.

    30 Turkish, 1266 Kurds. Something is not believed in such a ratio of losses, especially in urban conditions, rather close contact with the enemy. Most likely the losses of the Turks are slightly higher, and the Kurds are slightly lower, the truth is somewhere in the middle, as always.

        SSA is involved and there are not a few of them, it seems 20-25k, but are the Turks really only bombing and sprinkling shells, their tanks were burning more than once. Nevertheless, there will obviously be even more than 30 Turks alone. They occupied a number of settlements at the end of January, some settlements passed from hand to hand several times, the battles were mostly close and it was unlikely that the SSA would only storm the forces.

          it’s Baghdasaryan’s fairy tales about 25 thousand bayonets. The same Satanovsky accidentally burned him down on the air saying that if someone controlled a single 30 thousand army would rule the ball for a long time conditionally. these 5 thousand were supposed to enter there in 6 stages. Plus, Turkey recently sent 6 Turkmen soldiers trained there over the past 3 months.

Here about yesterday’s helicopter they might not recognize its loss, because on the rollers on the net you can’t say that the turntable was lost and the crew died. But they admitted it, although they could say that it’s all a lie and the helicopter with minor damage returned to the base safely ...

      Not to be confused with Russia. Turkey has a completely different attitude towards the army and the soldier and its role in society.
      CIS countries dream of such a status of military and police in the island.
      Here is the soldier’s funeral. Each region considers it its duty to bury its Martyr as respectably as possible. of the deceased. In general, in Muslim countries, funerals are a large-scale sight. For example, at the funeral of my grandfather there were 1200 people. Not 120, but 1200.
      Therefore, the concept of concealing losses in Turkey, with all the desire, will not work.

      Erdogan will cleanse the Kurds and take his place. SSA is proof of that.

      Erdogan is certainly a tough guy, but he knows the limits of his coolness. The Americans can not give a damn about ironing in Russia and Assad in many places. Turkey doesn’t have enough strength and money for this. Only in one case, if the US offers them such options in which it would be easy to give a damn about all the projects with Russia and go to enmity. And this is the business of the Russian Foreign Ministry to prevent this.

        The invasion will not begin directly, of course. At the first stage, the SSA detachments will be involved. If the Kurds succeed, then they will have a convenient base and base for such operations against Assad. The goal is to take control of as much territory as possible from the Turkish tuned population. Projects with Russia are not critical for the Turkish economy, including energy. Ankara has an alternative. This is indicated, at least, by the fact that the initiator is always the Russian side. I consider Turkish quarrels with America and Europe to be a game for the public, which is beneficial to both parties at this stage. Ankara has nowhere to rush, but Assad is constantly in time trouble and his capital is periodically under fire.

        Apparently in Syria, ISIS and the Syrian army are playing. Yes, they played so much that they decided to call their friends, and the Syrians fought the militants out of the dead defense with the help of a miracle and toboggan rags. Apparently, they rested, and our pilots apparently illuminate the road with their missile lights so that their friends do not go astray.

    Damascus strongly condemned the action of the Turkish Armed Forces, indicating that Afrin is an integral part of Syria ...

    Unfortunately, these are only statements. It seems that the Turks are the only ones who need this territory of Afrin and they can take it.
    Reggie's plan is simple
    1) To declare a virtually no-fly zone over Afrin, Al-Bab and the northern part of Aleppo. And already implemented it. And our General Staff thought that the Sultan was wagging his tongue when he talked about "all means against terrorists in Afghanistan, including anti-aircraft." After the downed Su-25, the MO realized that Reggie was serious, and if he continued to fly over this territory, he could again hurt us. And the flights stopped. But the Turks don’t hurt, since they are allocating a lot of money for the army, the economy is on the rise, there are millions of bearded refugee men in the country who will gladly go to the “green” troops to cut the Kurds in Syria for food and modest money. By the way, they also have a lot of tanks with helicopters. And if it is not enough, they will buy it. Perhaps even with us.
    2) Even if the SAA and occupies the north of Allepo and the surrounding area - it will not be fatal for the Turks. Assad has no money, no opportunity, no resources to restore the territories. We will not. Iran has figs and things without pouring money into rebuilding Syria - every day there are demonstrations of hamsters about the rise in price of milk and eggs. To build hospitals, roads, schools, zavobiks and other infrastructure will be in those parts of the Turks. Already built - at least a dozen cement plants were built there last year. If there is not enough manpower (after the disintegration of the Kurds), then they will hire Syrian prostitute-refugees. They, as I said above, in Turkey, "and you will not count."
    3) Well, then, after replacing the Kurdish population with Syrian Sunnis, Afrin will be officially opened from the SAR. And we will share the technology of "polite men" with them. Behind the third thread of the Turkish Stream, obviously.

    30 Turkish, 1266 Kurds. Something is not believed in such a ratio of losses, especially in urban conditions, rather close contact with the enemy. Most likely the losses of the Turks are slightly higher, and the Kurds are slightly lower, the truth is somewhere in the middle, as always.


    There are not particularly urban fights there. There is one large city - Afrin itself, but there are no fights there yet. The Turks slowly but surely close the ring around it, one after another take the heights and small towns and district (municipal) centers. PYD / PKK has positions just around small towns, trenches are almost in the open field. That's where the Turks beat from artillery and aviation.
    Something like this: http://www.milliyet.com.tr/afrin-deki-teror-mevzi
    leri-gundem-2603265 /.
    There is also a network of tunnel shelters and fortifications at heights in mountainous terrain. They are also methodically processed powerfully, and after that they already take it.
