Turkey expanded the geography of civil war by applying army aircraft in Tuncel province

30
The geography of the civil war in Turkey is expanding, which official Ankara persists in referring to as the "anti-terrorist operation." So last weekend, Turkish troops struck in the Eastern Anatolia region - in the province (s) of Tunceli, populated mainly by Kurds and Armenians. Qatari TV Channel Al Jazeera with reference to a representative of the Turkish armed forces, published a report on the use of military aviation "Against the militants of the Kurdistan Workers Party." This organization in Turkey is considered terrorist.


Airplanes and attack helicopters of the Turkish Air Force attacked mountain-wooded areas a few dozen kilometers from the administrative center of the province of Tunceli, the city of the same name. It is reported that the drones allegedly revealed a cluster of "PKK militants". As a result of the air strike, 23 people were killed. All of them are official Ankara declared terrorists.

The clashes of Kurds and Turkish security forces continue in other regions of the country. At least 5 of the eastern and south-eastern provinces of Turkey are immersed in a bloody confrontation, during which people die every day. Last Friday, the bloody battles were fought in Nusaybin, Sirnak, Silvana, and also in the settlement of Yuksekov. On the Kurdish side, at least 21 people were killed there, two by the Turkish army and police, and seven others were injured. Data on the number of civilian casualties is not published.

    Mostly civilians and die. There is a war to intimidate the Kurds.

      This is just the beginning. The beginning of the end of Erdogan, for which everything will end very sadly. The main tactics of the Kurds are guerrilla warfare, which, as you know, is quite difficult to counter. In addition, not so long ago, Erdogan, fearing a coup, expelled many sensible officers and generals from the army. The Kurds have solid combat experience in guerrilla warfare. The only question is whether the Kurdish parties, different in their views, will be able to unite and unite the people. The sooner this happens, the sooner Turkey will disintegrate.

        Why? They took Diyar, and this was the main stronghold of the PKK. They took Jizra. The second most important city for the PKK. There are bombings of cars, there are attacks by security forces, there is also an attempt to gather and create centers of organized resistance. But for now, the company is in favor of Erdogan. The world of Kurds from the PKK did not support, did not respond to ramming civilians and non-civilians in their homes from tanks, Iraqi Kurds Barzani threw the PKK - having concluded an agreement with Erdogan, now the Kurds entering Barzani from Turkey are arrested and given to the Turkish side for proceedings. The Syrian Kurds for the most part also chose Erdogan, and the western Enclave, which is actually at war with Turkey, does not have any contact with the PKK.

          Well, yes, he took them, scattered them around the country. Hence the attacks in Ankara every other day. What's good? Until he negotiates, he will not begin (and Erdogan will not begin), all the same, he will not win, this is not possible. And the country will be swayed, blown up, steam locomotives derailed, etc.

            The attacks were not from a good life, but from the fact that the attempted organized resistance failed.

            I just write that Erdogan wins the war. The attacks will be active for another five to ten years, as well as shelling, explosions. Look at the same Chechnya. What he is doing now, if we put aside the prerequisites and ideology in general, is a tougher version of the second Chechnya. After running the active phase, how many more did they run and blow up the mountains?

              Chechnya - 0,0 ...% of the population of the Russian Federation.

              Kurds from the population of Turkey do not tell me how much%?

              It seems not appropriate to compare

          Syrian Kurds? Are these those who are fighting with Daish et al in northern Syria? Those that regularly receive artillery attacks from Turkey? Have you sided with Erdogan? You did not confuse them with anyone?

            Kurds are divided into several enclaves.

            They fight and get 155mm shells the western enclave - PYG. They have the capital Afrin. And they helped to cut the way to Aleppo through Azaz and the Turkish border. They would have helped the PKK, but there’s just no way, they don’t have geographic contact with them, and there are politically graters (a little Americans throw weapons at them, as well as Germans via the SDF, but they react extremely badly to the PKK’s connections).

            Kurds in the East - in Koban (you could see them from reports with Kurdish Stalin), as well as in the vicinity of Hasake, have established relations with the Turks, sell oil, and have other economic relations. Sometimes they cave in on acute issues - crossing the Euphrates, the Turks reacted very violently when they took the dam and bridgeheads on the west bank. As a result, with the mediation of the United States, the main sponsor of the Kurds in Kobani, the offensive stopped. In other matters, such as the extradition of Kurds to the PKK, they do not bend, they say, if they ask for asylum, we will give them.

            Kurds in the province of Hassaka are even more east, in general, second after Barzani, the Kurdish partners of Turkey. In fact, they immediately established their trade turnover, received money from Erdogan, established contacts with sponsors, and actively participated in the washing of oil. They do not particularly fight, although almost the entire province was recaptured on the shoulders of the outgoing IS after defeating the city of Hassake. But then even the Americans could not get them to go.

              You have a very European perception of the situation. In the East, narrowly confessional and tribal interests are at the forefront. And the elections held in Syria, according to the result, speak for themselves. In the East, they bow to the rich and strong, but alliance or support, I would not call it. Rather, forced neutrality. Besides, war is war, and the bazaar is sacred. I'll give you a simple example. I have a friend. I will not indicate the nationality, but the person is honest. We had different things, and they sat in the same trench. Once I asked him: "I am your friend, and one day I will have a dispute with a person of the same nationality. He is not your relative. He is wrong. Whose side will you take?" He answered honestly: "To his side." East is a delicate matter.

          In my opinion, no one thought that the Kurds would be able to keep the city against the Turkish army. Only this will not solve the problem. There will be constant bombings, attacks on the security forces, while weakening Ankara will again be engaged in NP. request 15-20 million Kurds out of 77 million of the entire Turkish population are many and they are unlikely to forget how they rolled out their tanks. This is not just a small, distant, impoverished province - this is a national question. Even if Erdogan is suppressing now, all the same the coals will smolder and the recharge will come from Syria and Iraq. Barzani and part of the Syrian Kurds agreed with Erdogan, but they do not control all the Kurds in their countries. PM weapons will cross the border and a long war in Syria and Iraq allows the Kurds to gain combat experience. Well, plus the whole world already knows that there are such people - the Kurds and the Turks are pressing them hard. The Turks received their share of anti-advertising for investment and tourism to the fullest. Not really because you want a European to go where the war is going on, and even being hidden by the authorities, and even with the attacks of terrorism. The problem for the Turks is not the hostilities themselves - but their consequences for years. hi

      Everything is like in Ukraine, the author of this epic is immediately visible, the ears are the same. Erdogan merged in ecstasy with Poroshenko in the Kherson region, we are being cooked, and then the Turks themselves have leaked, and we need help if it wouldn’t mean to spoil us under the fence. So I hope that Turkey will reap the stones that it has scattered.

    At least 5 eastern and southeastern provinces of Turkey are immersed in a bloody confrontation

    Something suggests that this is just the beginning. Erdogan, with his qualities incompatible with the leader of the country, will and will go far. One gets the impression that he is acting like a "man" who has nothing to lose.

      Europe has no time, grandmother Merkel judges the satirist who laughed at Erdogan.
      Next in turn is the transfer of churches under the mosque ...
      And everyone will be happy. Not to Kurds to them ...

        The satirist somehow calculated everything so as not to fall under any laws. But Merkel is trying very hard to please Erdogashka, he just set an ultimatum.

    They were silent when it was in Yugoslavia, and in Ukraine ... They are silent that this is happening in Turkey .... I will continue to be silent if this happens in Europe.
    They are more interested in our planes at the interception.

      [quote = RuslanNN] Just like in the Caucasus in the 90s. [/ quote] [quote] Recall that the Russian and world media have already written that "on the border with the Russian Crimea there are Turkish soldiers who are preparing punitive Crimean Tatar battalions for the war for the Crimea ". Quite a lot of military instructors from Turkey have already gathered there. “The instructors were invited by the unrecognized Crimean Tatar Mejlis in order to create a capable combat unit under this organization,” the press reported. "The Turkish military are not going to attack Crimea themselves, but they train those who want to do it from Ukraine - the radicals of the so-called" Mejlis "who proudly call themselves" thugs ", - told journalists. Before that, the same Lenur Islyamov in an interview with a pranker (who introduced himself as an adviser to the Ukrainian Minister of Internal Affairs) let it slip - his militants want to start a war in Crimea and arrange a real massacre. Nezavisimaya Gazeta also wrote that on social networks, adherents of the Crimean Wahhabis and Hizb ut-Tahrir are calling for a war in Crimea ".

      Turkey is like a gunman, he is always ripe, He’s not exactly sitting on the pope.

    It is necessary to remind the Turks of our Caucasus and to throw firewood to the Kurds, so that there is something to warm up. It’s cold in the mountains.

    I watched on RT a report about Kurdish women in the Syrian militia. They do not have the anger and determination that is needed to win independence. So before they say "that's enough," Erdogan will shed a lot more blood.

    By supporting the Kurds, we risk ruining our relations with Iran, our ally (for now). There are many Kurds living there and they are also trying to create their own state. Once they practically succeeded with the help of the USSR.

    I will say this: everything that is good for Perdogan is bad for Russia and vice versa everything that is bad for Perdogan is good for Russia.
    But for now, the company is in favor of Erdogan. The world of Kurds from the PKK did not support, did not respond to ramming civilians and non-civilians in their homes from tanks, Iraqi Kurds Barzani threw the PKK - having concluded an agreement with Erdogan, now Kurds entering Barzani from Turkey are arrested and given to the Turkish side for proceedings. The Syrian Kurds for the most part also chose Erdogan, and the western Enclave, which is actually at war with Turkey, does not have any contact with the PKK.


    It seems to me that the main thing that Perdogan achieved is that he divided the Kurds among themselves in Syria and Iraq. Yes + to everything, Shmerkel licks the fifth point to Perdogan because of refugees. Perdogan went round about feeling the weakness of rear-wheel democracy in Europe.
    I will say the words of a famous movie character (a good movie and a little paraphrase): I feel that the world is on the verge of a grandiose rascal.

    Isn't it time to follow the example of the matrsniki and not toss a little weapon on the heroic rebels fighting the bloody dictatorial regime of Erdogan. Although we are here, probably "in front of the daddy" we will climb in - not for nothing that the Americans recently evacuated their citizens from any consulates-embassies?
