Turkish army shells positions of Kurdish formations in northern Syria


The Turkish army is shelling positions controlled by the Kurdish armed groups in the north of the Syrian Arab Republic. According to the latest information, the Turkish contingent is using heavy weapons to shell the area of ​​the settlement of Al-Arimah, located northeast of Al-Bab (Aleppo province).

The Kurdish administration of this region of Syria says that pro-Turkish militants are trying to take control of a section of the important M4 highway, located between Al-Bab and Manbij.

And in this, according to the representatives of the Kurdish administration, Turkish troops are trying to help them.

Against this background, it became known that it was decided to indefinitely close the Bab al-Hawa checkpoint from Syria to Turkey. It is located in the northwest of Idlib and is the most actively used by Turkish troops for the transfer of personnel, military equipment, fuel and lubricants and ammunition.

According to the latest information, this temporary closure of the checkpoint is due to the fact that a curfew was introduced in the border region of Turkey. The likely reason for the introduction of the curfew is called "the activity of anti-government armed groups in Turkey." Perhaps we are talking about representatives of the armed wing of the Kurdistan Workers' Party, who in the past few days have carried out attempts to attack some military facilities in the south and southeast of Turkey.

    If the Kurds acted as a united front with the SAA, the Turkish proxies would not have acted so brazenly.

      Each tribe has its own prince, no one wants to share power. A leader is needed, but I'm afraid he will be quickly disposed of, Kurdistan is not interesting to anyone!

    The two antagonists are Turks and Kurds and the issue of autonomy and territories. Therefore, the next shelling is not surprising. The PKK has become more active in Turkey, it has not been remembered for a long time.

    ASAD ....... Few people are interested in Kurdistan!

    Except for the Kurds, nobody. And they are constantly used by the United States on this topic, promising them an "autonomous Kurdistan", now in Iraq, now in Syria. They are constantly being led to this, despite the regular "scam". Erdogan is taking advantage of this, pushing them away from his borders, and we are helping him. And he, in "gratitude", openly climbed to Ukraine.
