Turkey stages military operation on YPG in Syria's Afrin

The Turkish military started a major cross border air operation on the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) militia in Syria's northwestern Afrin province on Jan. 20, with Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım saying that the land forces might be involved in on Jan. 21.

By evening, the army announced it stroke almost all of the targets it had determined in the area, before it announced that 72 fighters jets that took part in the operation returned to their bases.

"Out of 113 designated targets of the Democratic Union Party, Kurdish Syrian terrorist group, 108 have been destroyed as of 18:30 [15:30 GMT]. All the killed and wounded people, who have been sent to hospitals, are members of terrorist groups," the statement of the Turkish General Staff read.

The Turkish Air Force also reportedly hit the Menagh Military Airbase in northwestern Syria, which the U.S. used for supplying weapons to YPG.

Kurds are been slaughtered and they've called it "Operation Olive Branch". How sick is that.

Re: Turkey stages military operation on YPG in Syria's Afrin

Once again we have one NATO member fighting troops armed by another NATO member. presumably US fighter jets may be taking off from their Turkish base, to give support to the ground troops they back, who are being attacked by the Turks. If the American proxy fighters shoot down any planes, or kill any Turks, it will be with American weapons.

Re: Turkey stages military operation on YPG in Syria's Afrin

How to avoid saying "Attack" or"invade" or "kill" Turkish style,
From todays Hurriyet.

"Turkey launches major land operation into YPG militants in Syria's Afrin"

"Turkish army shells YPG targets in Syria's Afrin"

"Turkish military operation into Afrin begins, Manbij to follow: Erdoğan"

"Turkey retaliates against attacks, destroys YPG, PKK hideouts in Afrin: Turkish Army" etc etc,

Hurriyet is just an Erdogan mouthpiece reminiscent or the Pravda of old.

Heard this morning the first Turkish soldier has been killed. More to come, most probably. Bad and sad times ahead for all.
