According to a photo circulating online, Turkish forces have deployed at least one Koral electronic warfare system near Syria’s Afrin controlled by Kurdish YPG and YPJ militias.
The system is used solely by the Turkish Armed Forces and is developed to jam and deceive hostile radars. Thus, Ankara is preparing for a possible military reaction of the Damascus government to the announced Turkish military operation against YPG/YPJ in Afrin.
Meanwhile, reports are appearing that pro-Turkish militant groups are deploying forces in the area of Azaz bordering YPG-held Afrin. These forces will allegdly particiapate in the Turkish operation.
