Ankara: Afrin almost freed from terrorists

37
After confirming information about the arrival of Syrian government forces in Afrin, official Ankara announced the completion of the “first stage” of Operation Olive Branch. Recall that the military operation in the north of Syria by Turkish troops was launched last month. At the same time, the Turkish command reported that the main objective of the “Olive branch” is the destruction of terrorists. By terrorists, the Turkish leadership understands Kurdish troops stationed on the Syrian territory near the Turkish borders.


Ankara: Afrin almost freed from terrorists


Haber Turk reports that following the results of the first stage of the military operation, the Turkish troops lined up in a single line - a half ring in the Syrian Afrin. We are talking about two military groups of the Turkish Armed Forces, which at one time crossed the border of the SAR, moving out of the provinces of Kilis and Hatay.

The statement of the representatives of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Turkey draws attention. The statement refers to the "liberation of Afrin from terrorists." If we consider that Afrin is currently controlled by the Syrian government army, such a statement looks very entertaining. By the way, the Prime Minister of Turkey Binali Yıldırım made a similar statement, being at the welding event for the first joint of a submarine of Turkish origin. According to Yıldırım, the liberation of Afrin from terrorists will allow approximately 350 thousands of refugees to return to this region of Syria.

      Lek, when will you liberate your lands from the Cavtars?

      Stavros, And what should they? Are you definitely not Armenian? Because, I do not believe that at least one Russian in his mind and good memory will come up with this ... Ted up the Caucasus, such a hive as Dagestan, which is already boiling? But what if separatism (any) begins with Dagestan, where there are also a lot of them? For example. Unlikely, but suddenly. The Armenians sideways, even for joy, but Russia and Azerbaijan, and there are no ordinary Lezgins. Classical Armenian provocation. This is the Armenians dream of quarreling the peoples of Azerbaijan. And the Lezghins are the brotherly people of Azerbaijanis. So many friends, relatives. Almost every Baku family has relatives of Lezghins, and not only Talysh, Avars, etc. Also, once the Armenians managed to do something like that. It ended in 1994 with a terrorist act in the Baku Metro and the death of 14 people, in which Armenian special services were involved (like the Armenians of the metro): https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%92%D0%B7% D1% 80%

      Cleaning up from the Afghina bandit group by Turkey is the right action. It's time to end the gang war sponsored by the United States and its allies. This intervention by the Sayrian government only drags on the bloody wars and slaughter of this essentially banditry. Strengthen the alliance of the leading states of the region: Russia, Turkey and Iran and stop the bloodshed of peoples ...

      Well, well, the first fake from VO? Or a mistake, add your sources, I translate.
      "Afrin'de kahramanlarımız bütün bölücü terör örgütlerini bir bir ortadan kaldırıyor ama şimdi orası avuç içi kadar bir yer, biz oraya gidersek onların işine engel oluruz ama eğer ülkeyi savunma ihtiyacı doğarsa bu ülkenin istiklaline, geleceğine karşı herhangi bir alçaklık olursa o zaman 81 milyon ayaktayız , hep beraber bu sefere çıkarız. "
      “In Afghanistan, our heroes take away terrorist organizations (separation forces) one by one. But this place, a palm-sized territory, if we go in there will interfere with our work. But if there is a need to protect the country, if independence is against the future of this country or "meanness is all 81 million on our feet, all together we’ll go camping there."
      It’s been a long time since you noticed worthless translators, well, or a substitution of word meanings for the sake of journalistic “shock”. I reviewed the entire news feed with Binali Yildrym, suspected because there is no source. And voila, probably Zhirinovsky translated he often calls himself a Turkologist, a philologist.

        I apologize did not notice the source of Haberturk. I read the tape of Binali Yildrym http://www.haberturk.com/son-dakika-afrin-harekat
        i-nin-birinci-ayagi-tamamlandi-1852677
        Here is your source, there are no words of Binali Yildirim and this is not news from the bookmark of a warship, therefore I did not notice this news in the feed related to Yildrym.
        The news said the first part of the operation was successful. But the fact that Afrin is controlled by them is not a word! The news also says the forces that came from Hatay and Kilis joined forces at the front. The news is reported by Cetin Cetiner as a journalist and not Yildrym.
        It is also said that 84 villages were liberated, 6 small settlements and 20 strategic heights in the form of hills, then all are listed.
        It is also said about the transfer of additional forces to Kilis in the form of buses with soldiers and armored vehicles.
        That is, it is said that the first stage of the operation, the purpose of which was to unite the two attacking groups from two directions in one line, achieved this.

                Honestly In the coming years, if the geopolitical situation does not change dramatically
                then NEVER! As long as there are such state entities as the Russian Federation and Az-en. Dagestan is onreal.
                For they act in this matter together with the coming to power of at least the Aliyevs.
                There is enough evidence for this that can be described in 20 pages.
                Non-vowed treaties, Patrushev’s visits, joint exercises, the most inhuman border control in the north, both with the Russian and the Azskoys, by the way, this causes bewilderment among the Azovs themselves, ask anyone.
                I know enough youth and actions to at least voice problems, but they were covered by the authorities of Dagestan. I know a lot of people whose former prisoners were stolen from the territory of the Russian Federation with the consent of the FSB.
                And yes, therefore, the authorities of Moscow and Azn are equally criminal in this matter for me.
                Before Putin, the problem was voiced many times, she was stupidly silent, he has an agreement with Aliyev, they are friends.
                This issue was raised at the European level and support was received, but then there were pressure from Dagestan, accusations of separatism and Az-na. Although this was an official event on the rights of indigenous peoples.
                But why is the Armenian interested in it? It’s definitely not legally for help, and you certainly know more than me. I know what the Armenian special services are doing, I assure you.

                And yes Savros, Razmik. You can talk about this wonderful square in Yerevan, Moscow, Makhachkala, Baku around one simple guy, but then I’m afraid I will have to give evidence. I know too much on this subject, so much so that neither my fellow countrymen, nor Armenians, nor Russians, nor az-tsam like it. It’s possible to write a bestseller on the topic of the work of special services. As the Armenian special services did one thing, the Russian special services knew it, they let it work but Koga came up with actions. Coordinated with the Az special services and caught pawns, by the way Patrushev’s merit. The Armenians were offended but continued to work, introduced moles to the Az-Mo, they were identified thanks to the Russians, because this is such an experience before There is work, but as a rule, representatives of my people suffered.
                In this matter, the Russians prefer to control the situation with the Azians, because we are talking about the territory of the Russian Federation and stability in an unstable region. I don’t want to discuss this with the Armenian, I do not trust this issue. Do not meddle in your business and have killed so many guys.

                Too free interpretation!
                No one declared this “liberation of Afrin from terrorists” in any of the sources. It was said about refugees of all nationalities of Kurds, Arabs, Turkmens who would return to the “liberated” territories from Kurdish formations.
                Neglecting one small nuance, or attributing a second, changes the whole picture.

He spoke about Greece, about the ship, about the fact that there is no place for politicians there, soldiers should not interfere.

      The losses were incurred and the costs and costs were weighed, his tanks were on fire, the Kurds were fighting skillfully, the Syrian Arabs pulled up the "voluntary" Soviet-style air defense, the Russians silently sent the Su-57. That is, in fact, no one was afraid of the Turks and did not run. Kurds Afrin requested assistance from Damascus, and it was provided to them. Surrounding and taking Afrin for a month of operation did not work out - this is the failure of the whole plan. It's time to retreat, trying to save face. But it will not work.

    Most likely, the Turkish offensive will stop. Erdogan completed the task - he took control of the border, and you can give Assad to the interior of Afrin.

      Actually, Turkey reported on the FOUR stages of the operation. Then many did not understand what they were talking about, because they didn’t reveal anything after that. Looking at the current situation, I guess the first stage was to take the border, place refugees around the perimeter. Stage 2 is the capture of the two cities of Genderis and Erysipelas, the 2rd stage is already a zone of high mountain zones, where the offensive will be viscous and after overcoming these mountains there will be a 3th stage taking the city of Afrin itself.
