Turkey Is Drowning In Syria's Swamp, Two More Service Members Killed In Aleppo (Video, Photos)

File image.

On October 10, two Turkish service members were reportedly killed and three Turkish-backed Syrian militants were wounded when their vehicles came under attack near the Syrian town of Marea in the northern Aleppo countryside.

The vehicles, a BMC Kirpi MRAP [mine-resistant ambush protected] vehicle and an armored SUV, were targeted with anti-tank guided missiles as they were passing near the town.

The attack was allegedly carried out by Kurdish forces, namely the Afrin Liberation Forces. Kurdish forces control a pocket of land to the south of Turkish-occupied areas in the northern Aleppo countryside.

The Turkish Ministry of National Defense is yet to comment on the incident. The ministry usually acknowledges any human losses within 24 hours.

Turkish news sources said that the casualties of the attack were Turkish Special Police officers and workers in AFAD, Turkey’s Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency. This is yet to be verified.

Kurdish forces and radical militants stepped up their attacks on Turkish forces in different parts of Syria in the last few weeks.

On October 5, an attack with an explosive device targeted a vehicle carrying Turkish officers in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib. On October 7, a Turkish service member was killed in an attack that targeted a position he was manning near the village of al-Twais in the northern countryside of Aleppo.

Turkey appears to be slowly drowning in the Syrian swamp. Many in Turkey are questioning why their military is still in the war-torn country.

In an interview that was published by al-Watan newspaper on October 10, Syria’s Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad called on Ankara to withdraw its troops from his country and restore normal relations with Damascus.

So, the Russian strategy seems to finally starting to work. And people here seriously thought they would sit idle and watch Turkey play hardball. Walked right into that one :-)


Yep, lured into a trap….modern warfare needs lots of brain


i love Abdul Malik Houthis world best hero yemen snake ;)


Yup. Two types of warfare strategies – maneuver and attrition. Everyone wants to see maneuver as it is dynamic and yields fastest results. But it is very costly at all levels and not always most appropriate course of action for a range of practical reasons. Whereas, for Russia and Syria in case of Idlib: Attrition – let the YPG-SDF and HTS-TAF bleed each other for couple years, then after they start to look little more ragged try and negotiate the TAF out, and failing that, only then consider launching a SAA-RuAF ground offensive. Oh, and relentlessly bomb HTS positions the whole time.

This is the result of following orders from masters USA and Israel…Stupid and brainwashed Muslims killing each other… Please unite your forces and send them to israelis border and remove USA from your countries… This is so pathetic how we are stupid. What are you fighting for? Who is your enemy? Who/ what are you protecting? USA and Israel are using you like donkeys

This will happen soon though. This alliance is breeding.


Russian strategy is the long game. Many buffoons here on SF cry why there is no Russian response to every provocation.

Ridiculous clowns. All of Syria will be liberated and returned to government control, including kurdish militant held territories. The amount of time is irrelevant, the end result is everything.

The Malmö International Forum on Holocaust Remembrance and Combating Anti-Semitism (Malmö Forum) is taking place this week on October 13th. But who is attending, and what is it about?

Why is it happening now?

The conference was originally due to take place in October 2020 to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War and liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the 20th anniversary of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust, and the establishment of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA).

After delays due to Covid-19, it was postponed and is now taking place on October 13th, 2021.

Why is Malmö hosting?

Malmö has documented problems with anti-Semitism, which Fredrik Seieradzki from the Jewish Community of Malmö has previously told Sveriges Radio is “every reason” to host a conference in the city.

This is one of the reasons the conference is being held in Malmö, as well as Malmö’s importance in the Swedish Red Cross’ rescue operations at the end of the Second World War, driving white buses through Denmark to Germany, rescuing thousands of concentration camp prisoners and bringing them to Malmö.

What is the aim of the conference?

The Swedish government has made a number of pledges in connection with the Malmö Forum, which will be the focus of work carried out during the Swedish presidency of the IHRA, due to last from March 2022 to February 2023.

These include a pledge to preserve and pass on the memory of the Holocaust, a pledge to promote education to prevent anti-Semitism and other forms of racism and to strengthen Holocaust research, a pledge to combat anti-Semitism, Roma discrimination and other forms of racism, online and offline, and a pledge to promote Jewish life, strengthen Roma inclusion and enhance security for civil society.

What is the programme?

The conference will take place over two days in the southern Hyllie district of Malmö, starting with a welcome reception on Tuesday, October 12th, for heads of delegations, hosted by Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, with the main conference taking place on Wednesday 13th.

The themes of the conference are: “Promoting remembrance, fighting distortion”, “Developing education and reaching new target groups”, “Countering contemporary anti-Semitism and other forms of racism online and offline”, “Implementing strategies and ensuring security”, “Combating anti-Semitism and hate speech on social media” and “Preserving testimonies and developing education for the future”.

On the 13th, sessions include a plenary session on the consequences of the diminishing number of survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust, the Roma genocide and the persecution of different groups during the Holocaust, breakout sessions covering the different themes of the forum, and a plenary session focussing on action on anti-Semitism, the implentation of the forum’s pledges, and how to join forces to strengthen the work for Holocaust remembrance and combating anti-Semitism and other forms of racism.

The full programme is available here.

Who is attending?

It is expected that delegates from around 50 different countries will be in attendance, including heads of state and government, researchers, experts and civil society representatives. Survivors of the Holocaust will also be in attendance as guests of honour.

Speakers in the first session include Löfven, Mayor of Malmö Katrin Stjernfeldt Jammeh, President of Israel Isaac Herzog, Professor Yehuda Bauer, President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen, President of the World Jewish Congress Ronald Lauder and President of the European Roma and Travellers Forum Miranda Vuolasranta. The final session of the day includes speakers such as Löfven, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, President of the European Council Charles Michel and President of the European Jewish Congress Moshe Kantor.

The German AfD has become pro-Israel a lot. Just like Sweden Democrats.
