Kurdish Forces Released Footage Of Deadly Attack On Turkish Troops In Afrin

On June 7, the Afrin Liberation Forces (ALF) claimed responsibility for a recent attack in the occupied Syrian area of Afrin that claimed the life of a Turkish service member.

During the attack, which took place on June 3, ALF fighters targeted two vehicles and a post of the Turkish military and its proxies in southern Afrin with anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs). A Turkish service member and two Turkish-backed Syrian militants were killed as a result of the attack.

The ALF released footage showing the ATGM strike that targeted the post, where the Turkish service member was killed.

The Kurdish guerrilla group exaggerated the results of the attack by claiming that 13 Turkish service members were killed and four others were wounded.

The Turkish military and its proxies occupied Afrin in 2018 following a fierce battle with the Kurdish People’s Protection Units. Since then, the ALF and few other Kurdish groups have been waging an insurgency against Turkish forces.

The ALF is mainly active in Kurdish-held areas to the south of Afrin, where several units of the Syrian Arab Army and the Russian Military Police are also present.

Why doesn’t Damascus and the Kurd hierarchy get together and have a little chat about the north of the country. The Kurds want a homeland and the Syrian gov’t doesn’t want it to be a chunk of Syria which happens to have most of the oil fields. But there is plenty of room north of Syria, in Turkey. The PKK thought so.

The Turkish admin has been causing death and destruction trying to carve off a piece of Syria and hand it to Turkish friendly terrorists who have carte blanche on property and life itself, but will ultimately take their orders from the Turkish admin. Whats good for the goose, is good for the gander. The north of the country and Idlib itself could be liberated fairly easily if both the SAA and the Kurds put their minds to it. The Kurds could then have all the weapons they need to carry on where the PKK left off.


… Finishing the GENOCIDALS off and free all KURDS and Anatolia indigenous!

Kurds are pigs – pigs alike of humans get that in your head. Never in history, they achieved anything just pigs to be feed and course problems. 2-3 million Kurds live in N-Syria ofc they can never control much of land….that’s where the US and Zion + Wahhabi come in. SDF is just another group that is feed and aid by the US to cause problems in M.E, nothing more – there will be never “State/country” which would be Kurdish – 2-3 million people want to have a country, you can kiss my ass…do you know how many other groups in the world want that as well, which have a much bigger population than 2-3 million.

The N-Syria was and will be Syrian’s Arabs land – look at a map before the war, Kurds were North of Syria where they had no oil/gas – they lived in Al-Qamishli.

Turk-isis > Kurds, Kurds work and are just like our good Zion…why do you people think they would work with Syrian/Russia/Iranian?

2-3 Million in Syria, not Syria/Iraq/Iran/Turkey. Difficult task indeed, such is life

If you think Kurds in those countries are the same you are stupid, what do you also believe all Jews are Zion as well?

My enemy’s enemy is my friend. Pigs or nay, the Kurds seem to be the key to the north of Syria. The trouble will not cease until one side gets what it wants. In the past, the Kurds were fairly well treated by the gov’t in Damascus yet for the moment choose to listen to the US who left them to die in Iraq. Damascus and the Kurds are not too far apart. They want more or less the same things and are both fighting a Turkish invasion force that is stealing resources as it goes.

When will the Turdish learn?


That’s why ATGMs are not great for attacking infantry, they were very close yet almost all of them survived.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
