On December 18, Turkey’s Anadolu Agency released a video showing fortifications of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) near the northern Syrian town of Ayn al-Arab (also known as Kobani).

“Video obtained by Anadolu Agency shows the terrorists [the YPG and the PKK] in the city — right across the border from Suruc, in the southeastern Turkish province of Sanliurfa — dug trenches and tunnels, presumably to hinder Turkish armored vehicles from crossing the border for an operation east of the Euphrates River.

In order to connect their positions near the border, the terrorists are using cement to fortify tunnels and trenches spanning two meters tall by one meter wide (6.5 feet tall, 3.2 feet wide).

The footage also shows buildings thought to be local police stations with photos of terrorists on their walls,” Anadolu Agency wrote in its comment to the video.

Since the recent announcement by the Turkish leadership that the country is going to kick off a military operation against the YPG in the area east of the Euphrates, there have been numerous speculations on what YPG-held towns will be attacked first. Ayn al-Arab and Tall Abyad have been named as the possible targets.

Meanwhile, the Turkish Armed Forces continued to deploy armoured vehicles near the border with Syria, in the areas close to the YPG-held part of the country.

    I am no expert as many may have found out, from previous comments; BUT could someone tell me how those so called fortifications would help the Kurds ?. If that is the best they have, God help them.

      Indeed. Very same approach they had in Afrin. They failed to learn. Usually trenches are in zig-zag formation and not outside of the city but inside. Lines are too long, as if battle from WW1 will happen. Waste of lives and resources.

      They don’t look fortifications, or related tunnels, to me, more like some obscure infra-structure project. I don’t know, maybe it’s a sewerage project, designed in such a way that the fields will fill with shit when the Turks come!
      The construction is so not top-secret that a military structure is almost completely out of the question.

    I am so glad that Turkey has turned from an enemy five years ago, to a friend now.
