Erdogan Vows To Wipe Out Kurdish From Manbij-Qamishli Corridor In Northern Syria

FSA members are looting the city of Afrin

Following a military defeat of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) from Turkish forces in the area of Afrin, President Recep Erdogan vows to continue military operations against the YPG and to wipe out the Kurdish force from the Manbij-Qamishli corridor in northern Syria.

“The military operation will go on until the terror corridor through Manbij, Ayn al-Arab, Tell Abyad, Ras al-Ayn, Qamishli has been wiped out,” Erdogan said speaking at the Bestepe Culture and Congress Center in the presidential complex in capital Ankara.

“We have eliminated most of the terror corridor in the region,” the president said adding that 3,622 so-called “terrorists” had been neutralized since the start of Operation Olive Branch in the Afrin area.

Erdogan went further saying that Turkish forces “can suddenly come over one night in Iraq’s Sinjar and eliminate PKK terrorists there.”

The Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) is a Kurdish militant separatist organization operating in southern Turkey, northern Syria and northern Iraq. The PKK has been for a long time involved in a militancy against the Turkish government and de-facto seeks to establish an independent Kurdish state, which would include the territories of Turkey, Syria and Iraq.

Ankara describes the YPG as a branch of the PKK. The YPG is a core of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces. While some US public figures prefer to avoid this topic, the CIA openly supports Ankara’s claim.

    USA terrorism plan’s ruined by Erdogan everybody’s friend.

  • BL

    He won’t dare take any actions in Manbij unless his American master allows him to do so.

    • John

      Hello BL. To attack the Turks would end NATO. Erdogan seems to be his own master. There are no limits anymore. It’s how I see it.

      • BL

        Turkey won’t attack Manbij unless US agrees, otherwise it would be complete humiliation of the US in front of the whole world. I guarantee you this operation won’t happen unless and until US publicly approves of it.

        • Janne Kankaanpää-Haissoufi

          Erdogan will lose his face before election year, if he will not attack. All US can do is provide kurds with weapons. Do you think Turks give a shit what an ally says, which is making terror army of 30.000 PKK just behind their border and giving them 500 million a year? Alienating Turkey would be major security threat to Israel and USA would never ever do that. And it would push Turkey to same line with Russia, Iran and Hezbollah. US does not want Erdogan to attack, but they have zero choise. Either let Turkey attack, or attack Turkey and end Nato. The choise is more, than obvious.

    • as

      On that point i agree there’s small or no possibility Turkey attack Manbij directly but they can harass the Kurds. Both directly or indirectly by encouraging Arab-Turks conscripts soldiers under SDF command.

    • 5commando

      Damascus and Ankara should split Manbij like Poland in 1939

    • Hulusi Akar

      U terrorists said the same about Afrin. And Turkey has no masters, otherwise Turkey would never be in Syria. Coup in 2016 was the best thing happened to Turkey. All the American agents in Turkey are jailed. Now Turkey acts for their own interests and not for a foreign country.

      • BL

        Turkey is literally a terrorist state with a history of genocide, ethnic cleansing, and working with the worst terrorist groups in the world. ISIS and FSA are just the latest examples.

        Afrin was not under US protection, it was under Russian protection. Turkey couldn’t attack Afrin until Russia gave them the green light. As usual you Turkroaches brainwashed by Turkroach propaganda deny reality and history:

        https://mtdata.ru/u19/photo2E27/20652555454-0/original.jpg

        Turkey is part of NATO which by definition means you are not “independent” nor “act for your own interests”. You are dependent on your NATO allies and are required to act in according to NATO rules and regulations. There is a reason why Turkey is not being sanctioned by the West while truely independent countries are.

    It will be interesting how relations between Syrians and Turks in the SAA-held Qamishli will look like.

    • velociraptor

      the syrian government is outsider in this game. only misha is masturbating.

      • Michał Hunicz

        Turkish Army entering Qamishli would mean that the government is INSIDE this game.

        • velociraptor

          i am not sure, that the syrian government can do anything in quamishli. with or without turks.

          • Michał Hunicz

            So what will in your opinion happen when Turks will enter Qamishli?

  • Starlight

    Make a note of all those that cheer the turkish butchers. Remember it was the SAME ‘Modern Turkey’ (not the Ottoman Empire) that carried out the Armenian GENOCIDE (wiping out a christian people that refused to bow down to the zionists. Erdogan has praised the turks that murdered the armenians on many occasions.

    Today Turkey = NATO, plain and simple. What the jews falsely claim about themselves is actually true about the kurdish people- history’s continuous victims (tho as always the terrible leaders of the kurds carry much of the blame).

    To look at a kurd, you have an image of modern islam that you wish applied to ALL muslims. Kurds are to islam as the brits are to christianity. The turks PRETEND to be the face of modern islam, but the kurds are the real deal.

    So most of all the wahhabis hate the kurds, which means the zionist hate the kurds, for the wahhabis and zionists are blood brothers, as we all know.

    The kurds no more betrayed Syria than the welsh or scots betrayed Britain. They are just a nationalist group with illusions of grandeur and leaders who take advantage of the same (like the welsh and scots). Would you cheer the english invading scotland and/or wales?

    Stupidity and a nationalistic dream is not a crime. Judge a people by their actions- and the kurds have been anything but terroristic- despite the most horrific provacations by the turks.

    And remember, the stupid choices of today’s syrian kurdish leaders were actually the manipulations of the british and americans- america bribed kurds with vast amounts of cash and weapons at a time the kurds genuinely feared the alliance of the turkmen and ISIS.

    Putin’s offer of ‘protection’ was WORTHLESS when Putin is actively allowing dozens of American military bases all across that region of Syria. The kurds wanted Putin to assure them he’d throw the Americans out if they joined Assad, and Putin laughed in their faces at such a suggestion.

    • Skagos

      I have never read so much bullshit in 1 single text. There are so many things wrong here that pointing out every single one of them would put out an equally long wall of unneccessary text but still i will mention i couple of things.

      1.Armenian Genocide: Your brain probably is in the size of a bean and thats probably why you don’t know this but let me tell you; GENOCIDE is a LEGAL TERM. Okay? That’s why, for an event to be counted as a genocide, it must be taken to an international court and then be proved there.

      And why Armenia is not doing this? Because they don’t have the proof. What are they gonna represent as a proof to the court? Thousands of Armenian militants that fought and died for Russia IN THEIR INFANTRY UNIFORMS?

      2. Only a delusional fucktard like you would believe and think Kurds are all the same and they share the same ideology and religion. Not gonna say anymore things about Kurds.

      3. Wahhabis hate everyone except themselves. That’s basically it. Read a couple of articles about Wahhabism before writing ignorant pieces like that.

      I could go on but honestly i am too tired and i don’t wanna waste more time with a fucktard like you.

          Everyone knows that this happened. There is a LOT of proof for this. Most foreign jihadis came to Syria trough turkey, The islamic asswhipe AK party let that happen. And they bought the oil from isis and sold it to virtualy everone, including israel

        • schiamachy

          So why was Turkey buying oil from ISIS and why were hundreds of tanker trucks driving from oil fields in Syria to Turkey? I suppose your going to claim they were putting oil into the ground in Syria as a present from Erdogan. Then of course as ISIS attacked Kobani just over the border, Erdogan stood back and applauded. Not to mention the other ton of evidence that showed Erdogans support for ISIS.

          • Hulusi Akar

            Simple they were from the KRG you babboon. Barzani also confirmed it and denounced it bombings of it.

    • schiamachy

      So why were, not all, but many Kurds fighting for the USA in creating new cantons to break up Syria. It does not seem to show loyalty to Syria. It seems to me that the US is willing to partner any group against any group to throw the Middle East into violent chaos before turning on their original friends. This has been their technique which has worked for them in South America and prevented the South American nations from becoming a united competitive force.

  • Pave Way IV

    Erdogan went further saying that Turkish forces “can suddenly come over one night in Iraq’s Sinjar and eliminate PKK terrorists there.”

    But of course. Nothing has really changed on either the US or Turkey’s part for the last couple of years – they are establishing their buffer zone like they announced back in July of 2015. The US let the Yazidi get slaughtered in Sinjar, so neither the US nor the Iraqi Kurds will lift a finger when the Turks roll in. As for Syria – hell, even Debka got this one right. And true to form, the ‘ISIS pocket’ in the Yarmouk Valley heights will eventually fall to an Israeli-friendly FSA, who will annex the southern tip of Syria on behalf of their Tel Aviv masters. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/874177dfe2ed7d1b5353334cdda390ab0a388a3b44df473e7cdb173cd4c43c53.png

          The main point is how your dear Vlad ended. Now, does this ”address the main point” precisely ?

          Did you know he stayed in Ottoman prisons for almost a decade before he fleed to Romania where he was renamed Vlad the impaler ? Do you know what happened to him in Ottoman dungeons ? Learn it boy, I am sure you will like it dearly.

    FSA have been strip-looting both Syrian public and private property since 2012 – Turkish secondary market is of course the beneficiary. From pulling up public railway tracks to lampposts for scrap metal, to entire hospital wards of specialist medical equipment all being trucked off to Turkey. But private property is no less vulnerable – commercial fittings, whitegoods, aluminum frames, air conditioners, everything gets loaded up and trucked to Turkey for to be sold on the cheap for cash. Turkey is awash wih looted Syrian property.

    A british woman was stupidily fighting with kurds in Afrin. Erdogan bombed her and she died. That’s why Erdogan is winning. He doesn’t care who he bombed as long as the job is done.

    Don’t the Turks risk direct clashes with pro-government militias if they go to far south.

    Also, yes there are certainly cross border connections between the two groups, but these separatist organization aren’t terrorist per se but instead are terrorist producing (like Turkey).

  • SnowCatzor

    How the hell can Erdogan say he’s fighting terrorists when his own army is explicitly allied with terrorists? Erdogan has no sense of decency or ability for introspection, as he is a tyrant.

  • RichardD

    It will be interesting to see what the Presidents of Turkey, Russia and Iran come up with during their up coming meeting on ending the Syrian war. A 20 mile Turkish buffer zone is the lesser of two evils compared to KRG ll in northern Syria. And the Turkish Deputy PM is already talking about a planned withdrawal:

    – Turkey will not remain in Syria’s Afrin –

    http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/turkey-will-not-remain-in-syrias-afrin-turkish-deputy-pm-128979

    I’m sure that the Turks are being approached by the Jew world order to participate in the partition of Syria and setting up a north Syrian state under Jew world order military occupation. So while the Turkish buffer zone may prevent KRG ll in Syria, the Kurds are probably being told that they’l have a dominant position in a new north Syrian state. Even if the have to share power with the non Kurdish majority.

    Any Kurd dominated “north Syrian” state under Mossad shadow administration is going to be used against Turkey. And the Turks probably recognize that. With the SAA at Daraa, the Jew’s hopes of a southern buffer zone on the Golan are being crushed. So setting up some type of trouble making entity in northern Syria is high on the Jew leaches priority list.

    A Turkish buffer zone at best is an interim step to preventing complete Kurdish domination of north Syria. But in and of itself it won’t prevent partition. So the challenge is how to move ahead with Syrian government reclamation of the 90% of Syria east of the river south of the potential buffer zone. Because if the Turks do proceed east to the Iraq border, whoever controls the remainder of Syria east of the river, is going to be who the Turks eventually are going to have to work with on transferring the dmz back to local administration.

    If they’re left alone, the Turks are unlikely to venture far from the border. They may supply non Kurd regime change proxies as they’ve been doing all. But that hasn’t gone well for the proxies when faced with the combined might of the Syrian government coalition. The real challenge is US air power for the terrorists east of the river and on the Jordan border. Because without it, the regime change forces will be rolled up by the Syrian government coalition, as they have been all along.

    The USAF, IDF and the other tag alongs have been pushed back by the expanding Russian/Syrian no fly zone west of the river for years. That is probably going to continue to the east side of the river as the mopping up process west of the river proceeds, and more freed up resources become available for operations on the east side of the river to expand the government footprint already established and maintained there.

    • John Brown

      I doubt it as Turkey is to be destroyed in the Yinon plan which Gulin was supposed to implement. Yes racist Jews may try to persuade Erdogan but he, his entire family etc. were to be executed as part of this plan by Mossad in teh Zionist backed Gulin coup. The question is Erdogan that stupid to take the side off racist Jews again after having to hide in the Russian base in Syria as Russia tipped him off and saved his life hours before Mossad death sqauds were to kill him, so they can kill him, his family, friends etc. him now. I doubt it. Nothing like near death experience to teach one, who ones enemies and friends are.

      • RichardD

        The Turks are at the mercy of what evolves south of their border dmz east of the river. They’re not capable of fighting the USAF and the rest of the NATO/Jew world order combined air capability. Their ground forces could handle the SDF easily without Jew world order air cover. But their air force couldn’t protect their ground forces from air strikes. Any attempt to advance south of their buffer zone without IDF permission would be a blood bath. They couldn’t stop the formation of the KRG in Iraq, and they won’t be able to stop KRG ll in Syria without Russian help.

        They would be offered participation in setting up and running the north Syria state as the Jew’s partners. Who would still use the Kurds to take over Turkey as an internal 5th column. Any partnership with the Jews on a north Syria state would be the beginning of the end of Turkey as an independent state. The Kurds would be the Jew’s occupying army to keep the Turks weak and servile. Turkey would become the the latest host for the Jew leeches to take over and fed off of.

        The Russians and the Turks have done the right thing with dejudification in the post WW2 era. They should continue dejudification and the US, UK and France should begin their own dejudification process as well. As part of dejudifying the planet to create a Jew free world that will be much better for humanity.
