Turkish contingent suffered further losses in Syria

The Turkish military contingent in Syria suffered further losses.


It is reported that in the north of the Syrian Arab Republic, near the city of Afrin, a sergeant of the Turkish Armed Forces was killed during a clash. The name of the soldier is called. This is Mehmet Altun, who previously ended up in Syria as part of a unit engaged in an operation called the "Olive Branch" by the Turkish Ministry of Defense.

This operation itself, positioned as "anti-terrorist", began in March 2018 and formally continues to this day. In turn, Syria notes that Ankara's main goal in this case is to gain a foothold in the north of the SAR, primarily in terms of its military presence.

The information about the loss of the serviceman is confirmed by the Turkish Ministry of Defense. According to the military department, the Turkish military "were forced to engage in battle with a detachment of terrorists." In this case, the terrorists are representatives of the Kurdish self-defense units of the YPG. Earlier, the Turks accused the United States of supporting the YPG by the American side.

Kurds also claim that the Turkish army has suffered losses. In addition to the news about the deceased Turkish sergeant, data are also given on several wounded soldiers of the Turkish Armed Forces.

Recall that the Turkish (as well as the American) military contingent in Syria is located without a relevant UN Security Council mandate, as well as without an official invitation from the Syrian authorities.

    Turkish contingent suffered further losses in Syria
    How do you like the title? If you read it, you immediately think that at least 10 Turkish military units have laid down their heads while conquering a piece of the territory of a foreign state. But no, only one sergeant. No one called Turkey to Syria, they came pursuing their own interests, so be glad that one.

      Well, if it's not a loss, then okay ...

        If the editor or someone on the site makes a selection of articles entitled the article even so: "A Turkish soldier died in Syria," then of course I would have written another comment.

          Believe me, there would have been another who made a complaint about "why the title didn't say anything about the wounded."

              Interestingly, in the case of Karabakh, the Turks shouted with might and main about Azeri's holy help in liberating their territory, how right it is that they are returning their territory. What will they yell when they are driven out of Syria? After all, someday it will come to this anyway.

                I think that the Turkish repertoire will be selected depending on who exactly will drive them.
                Earlier, the Turks accused the United States of supporting the YPG by the American side.

                There are non-zero chances that the Democrats will not throw Kurds. Although... smile

    And the Kurds are looking straight into the blood with the Turks fighting for their land.

    Well, at least that way, otherwise the howl would have risen .. In general, about Syria, have they forgotten something or do they hope that a conflict will grow in Karabakh? Here, and already from the territory of Ukraine, I begin to break through with weapons to us .. negative Where to expect the main blow from Russia, that is the question?
