    One wonders why there are no real attacks on Tell Rifaat?

    It is the one attack that could result in reaching Idlib. Until that is done, reinforcements and resupply can reach Afrin (Assad willing of course).

    On the other hand, that whole region is heavily fortified and TFSA had very heavy lossess the last time they tried and the region has been even more fortified over the last year.

    This invasion can go in all directions but whatever the course it will follow, the material and immaterial (loss of life) damage to people, their possessions, lives is horrendous and the hatred of kurds towards turkey and turks has grown.

    The only small hope one can have is that Erdogan will come to his senses, which is very unlikely.

    As all peoples will have to pay the price for rthis, one can only hope that someday he will have to pay a price too.

      Simple Assad would counter with SAA and allies ,Russia bad plan also opens up TFSA region in an counter attack.
