13

Kurdish news services are publishing reports stating that on the night of December 22, pro-Turkish forces intensified their attacks on the city of Ain Issa and its environs. It is reported that the armed formations under the control of Ankara and the Turkish military themselves have switched to the use of heavy artillery to strike at the northern part of Raqqa province.


The most active shelling is carried out in the area of ​​the settlement of Mushairifa.

On the map, the locations of the strikes by the so-called "Syrian Free Army" - the armed formations supported by Turkey - are marked in blue.

It is also argued that Turkish artillery was directly involved in the shelling of Ain Issa and its eastern suburbs.

Meanwhile, resources controlled by the said FSA report that Kurdish armed groups have attempted to mine the main directions in the north of the province of Haseke - near the Turkish border. One of these directions is north of the Syrian Tal Tamra. It should be noted that these transport arteries are actively used by the Turkish side for military traffic. The report states that a powerful explosive device was discovered, which "the enemy planned to activate at the moment the column passed." What specific column is being discussed has not yet been reported.

Earlier, in Syria, it was announced about the transfer of an additional military contingent of the RF Armed Forces in the direction of Ain Issa - Kamyshli. Let us recall that American servicemen are also operating in the Qamyshli region.

The Kurdish administration said that "if the US and Russia do not react to the shelling of Ain Issa, it will give Turkey the green light to move troops south of the key route." This is a highway connecting Aleppo with the eastern regions of the SAR. It is on this road that Ain Issa is located.

    Kurds are a thorn in one place in Turkey! But the Turks prefer to endure it, periodically picking it out with a knife ... How far-sighted this is, I don't know. But, apparently, this music will be eternal ...

      It will last forever until the Kurds realize that they are a walking encyclopedia of problems.

            This is such a centuries-old national fun! But, in this case, the Turks are good too - they are trying to solve the problem exclusively by force ... So it turns out that the current state of affairs suits everyone, no matter how paradoxical it sounds!

          Apparently for now. Russia offered the Kurds an option to agree to the transfer of the city of Ain Isa under the control of the SAA, which, in the event of an offensive by the pro-Turkish beards, would make it possible to use the Russian Aerospace Forces as support for the Syrian army, and at the same time would be a deterrent for Ankara. However, the Kurds still rely on mattresses to support the SDF forces in the event of the bearded attack. But along the way, mattresses now have other troubles and it may turn out that the Russian Federation and Damascus will first observe from the side how the Turks and their wards break off the obstinacy of the Kurds and force them to flee to negotiate in Damascus, after which they will "kindly" agree to intervene in the situation, but no longer as opponents, but as saviors.

    The Kurdish administration said that "if the United States and Russia do not react to the shelling of Ain Issa, it will give Turkey a green light to move troops south of the key route."
    Russia told the Kurds that "if you continue to blunt, the kraken will eat you, and the Kurds themselves will be to blame for this ...."

    pro-Turkish forces intensified strikes against the city of Ain Issa
    And today I read the information of the Arab media that allegedly Pro-Turkish militants fired at the Russian convoy moving along the highway, if I am not mistaken, M-4. Our MO has not announced anything yet, so it is possible a fake. But the fact that the pro-Turkish militants have become more active in recent days is a fact. So we need to wait for the next work of our videoconferencing.

    "If the United States and Russia do not react to the shelling of Ain Issa, it will give Turkey the green light to move troops south of the key route."
    Kurds are unable to get rid of the habit of "prostitution". Although the lessons were taught enough. Such features of so-called diplomacy will obviously not end well for them.
