UPDATE: Government troops are really entering the Afrin area (more photos and videos below). However, the YPG has not provided an official comment on the deployment so far.

Few moments ago, Syrian government forces started entering the area of Afrin controlled by the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), according to reports by pro-government and Kurdish media activists and media outlets.

According to reports, units of the local National Defense Forces (NDF) are mostly involved in the effort.

This video allegedly shows a NDF coolumn preparing to enter the Afrin area:

      YPG should negotiate with fellow ABORTION RIGHTS defending Turkey instead of negotiating with ABORTION BANNING Assad cronies.

      • Barba_Papa

        Too bad for you that Erdogan considers eliminating a Kurdish state way way way more important for Turkey’s national interests as something as trivial as abortion.

        • Samantha Green

          If abortion is trivial then Assad will have no problem conceding abortion rights to the Kurds, Turks, Israeli’s, Americans, British and Russians. Oh! he hasn’t? must not be trivial then.

          • John Mason

            Too bad you were not aborted.

          • Samantha Green

            ditto.

          • Barba_Papa

            Like Assad gives a flying fuck about abortion rights right now. Let alone to those in foreign countries. I don’t even give a flying fuck about abortion rights either way. If a woman wants to have it, be my guest, if she can’t because of the law (and it wasn’t rape) then she should have taken better care at prevention.

          • Samantha Green

            Assad is certainly putting his presidency, and life, at risk for the sake of maintaining his abortion ban in the face of SDF, Israel and Turkey. If he didn’t give a fuck he would obviously let go of it.

          • Barba_Papa

            Only in your tinfoil hat country is this about abortion rights. Like Turkey and Israel give a rats ass about abortion rights in Syria. Take the tinfoil hat off. This whole conflict is all about Iran, Hezbollah and the Shia crescent, which Israel is DESPERATE to stop from happening.

          • Samantha Green

            Only because they ban abortion and are therefore doomed to expansionism to feed the expanding population that inevitably results. Israel and Turkey know that any nation that bans abortion must eventually invade.

          • robert wa

            I think Syria and the region has more pressing problems at the moment, …They’ll first have to get rid of western backed terrorist’s who let’s face it if you’re Christian or kurdish even Islamic will hang your or rape you or both and then killed

            What the fook has abortion got too do with the price of chips lol

          • Samantha Green

            Abortion greatly reduces the price of chips, along with all consumer products that involve natural resources, by reducing demand. Without abortion, chips would be unaffordable and we would all be starving.

          • Merijn

            Sterilization would be the answer for all your problems….. saves a lot of abortions…..and money…

          • Samantha Green

            Many problems but not all. Both are needed.

            The Malthusian enthusiasts.

          • Samantha Green

            Fewer people would produce fewer dead fetuses, even through normal miscarriage without abortion. For example there are fewer dead bonobo fetuses than dead human fetuses because there are fewer bonobos than humans.

          • Bob

            Are you a qualified veterinarian, with field experience relating to maternity and miscarriage issues vis-a-vis the stated species? Err, no?

          • Samantha Green

            It’s obvious. how many dead fetuses are on Mars, where people are few? I need 10 years of college to figure that out?

          • Samantha Green

            The entire conflict, like all territorial conflict, was caused by ABORTION BANS, as is all associated hardship.

      • William Damoury

        How trivial is your mind? Typical Westerner waffling on about abortion rights at such times, when a whole population is trying to survive. You moron

    Quick, call the ‘defense contractors’ and tell’em to hire more workers to built the bombs.
    NEWS FLASH: 1715 Terrorist killed in ‘Operation Olive Branch’, now that is a peaceful operation!!

  • antoun

    sources kurds and djihadist manip hoax!!

  • Glen Etzkorn

    that moment of sense, Kurds need Syria, Syria needs Kurds and the war criminals like Turkey, US of Arses. Saudi. Israel, Qatar and EU can go home finding themselves in front of the Hague for prosecution of war crimes.

    God bless SAA agaisnt the zio wahabi Turkey

  • BMWA1

    Go Assad ‘режим’! :)

  • Joe Doe

    I hope Assad got what he wants from Kurds

  • antoun

    syrian army occupied 5% the territory afrin!!

  • χρηστος

    things in Syria are very very complicated…cannot predict what is going to happen even a few days ahead…a diplomacy mix….

    1rst scenario. Russia-Syria-Turkey are in this together. they cripled the Kurds and let them know who is the boss in SYria (certainly not USA)….so they faced elimination in Afrin….they give back the land to SYria….no thoughts of Kurdistan any more….and they save their lifes.
    2nd scenario. Russia-Syria punish the Turks that dont keep their part of the deal. Νο Kurdistan but help SYria fight hts-isis-fsa……Turkey funds all these especially fsa that now acts as Turkish land force. So they will give another defeat to Sultan.
    3rd scenario. where is the US in all this?given its blessing for the Afrin operation as a gift to Turkey. if it helps the mess up of Syria its ok for them. Turkey against Syria-Russia….a dream come true for the lost case of US planning for Syria.
    4th….no planning ,anything goes there and after the situation stabilizes we’ll talk….

    • Rakean Jaya

      Hope it is number one scenario as Turkey shelling seems just for show, landed behind convoy, i‘m sure there are alot of back channel between Syria, Turkey, Russia and Iran, beside no more ‘Assad must go’ mantra from Turkey sides.

      • χρηστος

        yes indeed Turkey seems to have made a huge turn in its policy….the Assad must go was a dream …but Russia woke everyone up…..Turkey realised that…

    • Joe Doe

      The most likely scenario was deal between Russia, Iran and Turkey to free Syria from terrorist. Mean time Kurd’s influence by Americans become aggressive towards Syria and SAA in Eastern Syria, therefore Erdagon use the opportunity with the permission from Russia attack Kurd’sin Afrin, with the intention that under pressure Kurd’s will agree to join Assad and Syria as one nation. Unfortunately, Putin failed take in to consideration that Erdagon is unpredictable and has own agenda, conquer Syria. The idea was good, but can’t be done with unpredictable person such as Erdagon

      • Merijn

        You know what would be a big surprise…. if Iraq steps in…..

      • χρηστος

        exactly i agree with the unpredictable behavior of Erdi…..furthermore expansion is the magic word there for Turkey as well. In Sultans troubled mind the thought of expanding Turkey to its ‘legitimate’ borders that were lost because of previous defeats (wwi, wwii etc) is a life purpose….

    • Merijn

      Russia, Syria, Turkey are obviously in this together….. best option for all parties is them AngloZioNazis to leave to begin with…. you don’t want them hangin’ around with all these negotiations going on and who needs Usrael sitting on that table too? I mean, I suppose adult men can take care of their own business…. go home Yangeese & take your NATO with you….. shows over for you Big Brother…… hehehe game well played…..checkmate……but I bet them is too stupid to understand this, so time for some more tricks….I know whose Think Tank is going to win..

      • gustavo

        Turkey is not fighting terrorists. The evidences indicates that Turkish support terrorists. They made business with Syria oil taken by terrorists, and now continue making business with them by buying Syria industrial parts. Officially, Turkey wants Assad out of Syria government. Turkey is a selected member of NATO, where air basis and nuclear weapons are in this territory. It is not possible to trust Turkey in any thing.

        • don

          I think this is as clear as it gets in this now volatile situation. Neither Turks, nor Ameicans can be trusted, they started this invasion and war, they still are trying to destroy Syria. Syria should make a political deal with Kurds now and defend their land. If the two parties agree the invaders will be thrown out. If the two cannot agree, they will lose together.

        • Merijn

          Wasn’t talking about trust or becoming friends….. but the AngloZioNazis & NATO have no more business in Syria… so talking with Turkey is always a good thing….and Headchoppers should all be chopped up

    • Ronald

      Tillerson just a couple of days ago suggested a “joint Turkey-US security zone”.

      • χρηστος

        well i dont think Turkey trusts the US any more….so that will never happen i think….Turkish arrogance involved there as well

  • Ivanus59

    Too bad the Tigers will be busy in East Ghouta for a while now. But Turkey’s turn will come, no rush.

    • zman

      Yes, I wonder how those Leopards will fare against a T-90?

      If you really believe 3-4000 people can stop us , you are either a complete M0ron or an avarage Serb.

    Things have gotten so complicated in Syria it’s not even funny.

    • paul ( original )

      Not only complicated but ( at least to me) unfathomable. It is hard to
      understand how the Syrians could be assisting the Kurds in the west
      while confronting them in the east. Also these troops don’t look like
      the Syria Army to me. The article says they are National Defence
      Forces, but this is a bit vague.

  • George King

    I’m not sure why SF has been reduced to publicize rumors from PKK/PYK/US, there has been no agreement until Kurds completely disarm and hand over weapons including personal fire arms. This has to be followed up by Syrian national Army SAA securing the borders and all resources (water, gas/oil) for the Syrian Proper. The Syrian alliances had not shed Treasure and Blood for anything less. These videos do not idenify either SAA or Shia and appear to be Kurds from Aleppo Kurdish area.

    Unfortunately the Afrin clans have been disposed by the Kurd clans from multiple countries and as we saw with the Iraqi clans it is all about the money from resources which is not distributed to the Kurdish civilians to include stiffing them out of the civic pay checks for administration and infrastructure in their own areas of influence.

  • gustavo

    Afrain is Syria land, it is not Turkey land, and it is not Kurds land.
