At least 49 militants of the Turkish-backed National Syrian Army (NSA) were killed by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the border town of Ras al-Ayn on October 16, according to opposition activists.

The militants were reportedly looting houses inside Ras al-Ayn, in northern al-Hasakah, when they were ambushed by fighters of the Kurdish-led SDF.

According to the activists, 40 of the killed  militants were members of the Sultan Murad Division while the rest were fighting in the ranks of the Hamza Division.

The NSA launched its attack on Ras al-Ayn eight days ago in the framework of Operation Peace Spring. However, the Turkish-backed coalition is yet to make any significant advance within the town.

Ras al-Ayn is one of the main targets of the Turkish Operation Peace Spring. The first phase of the operation is aimed at establishing a 120 km long, 30 km deep “safe-zone” between Ras al-Ayn and the town of Tell Abyad to the west.

GREAT job!Keep on the good work PKK !


Turkish terrorists, no pity, treat themas they treat you. Hope you guys catch Erdogan himself and hang him.


You are fully right. I have proposed in the Netherlands to treat turks like they treat kurds in Turkey. As turks are saying they are treating kurds wonderfully and correctly, there should be no problem to treat any turk like that right here.


Good thinking Dutch! I am starting to like you.. ;)


Thank you.

What was the quote Nelson Mandela spoke about being a Kurd in Turkey. Do you have any references as I cannot find one?


How very perfect… Turkey’s best is surprised/killed while looting houses. Turkey better pray they never have to mix it up with the Houthis of Yemen or they will be conquered…

opet ja

I have a filling Turkish soldiers not so hyped to fight and chase Kurds along Syria. Their moral will even go down with accidents like this and capture of almost intact vehicles. Without strong and precise air support they will do nothing.

Haha its few kill more you lovely kurds !


Arrogant Erdogan must come to ICC.


Now where are you stinky turkish trolls now? dead in a ditch with a bullet from a kurd in the head? Looting and stealing like a true Jihadi.

I saw that they captured one of their MRAPs but I didn’t know they slaughtered them that bad.


Syria to the Syrians, soon it’s up to the Golan.

Not soon………….but will happen


Turkey should make their borders stronger and they should make any buffer zones or safe zones on their border inside Turkey not to penetrate other countries borders and make them inside them with proxy crazy jihadists. Stupid Turkish ottomans.


Latest tweets and maps on syrian civil warmap show turks and proxies being pushed back away from M4.

As islamists are sending reinforcements to attack Serekaniye so kurds are sending reinforcements. Meanwhile, in KRG, a major export region for turkish consumer goods, a boycot of all turkish products and companies is developing. An app has been developed identifying turkish products, to make a boycot easier. If they adapt the app into english, all countries, all consumers can start their boycot of turks.

Maybe the app should be adapted to include a boycot of US products. To punish them for their betrayal of kurds.

On the other hand, there are not that many consumer goods the US exports.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
