The sources reported that the Turkish Army artillery had shelled several positions of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the southern part of the Afrin area and even in the SAA-held areas north of the city of Aleppo.

Meanwhile, the YPG press announced that YPG fighters had killed ten members of the Turkish-backed FSA around the city of Afrin in a hit and run attack. Two vehicles of the FSA were also destroyed.

Furthermore, YPG fighters conducted a second hit and run attack against the Turkish Army and its proxies in the district of Shara north of Afrin city. Eight fighters of the Turkish-backed FSA were killed and three others were injured in the attack, according to the Kurdish Hawar News Agency (ANHA).

Currently, the Turkish Army is advancing to separate the remaining YPG-held areas south of Afrin from Idlib governorate. Later, the Turkish Army might launch an attack to capture the city of Tell Rifaat east of Afrin, according to Turkish sources.

Members of the Turkish-backed FSA are inside the newly captured villages:

    Dutchnational: is it true?

    I see they sold the looted vehicles from afrin. They moved quick on that.
    Which means they’ll have to operates without Turkish cover soon. Or is it ?

  • Lilian Turin

    I am still puzzled to understand what’s the agenda here. Clearly Assad and the Russians allow them to advance but to what extent this will go on for? surely Assand doesn’t want these Turkish lads on Aleppo City’s gates? where does this stop ?

    • Davki

      Two things: Firstly, Syria doesn’t have the military means to confront the Turkish army (one of the biggest in NATO); Russia doesn’t have the will, since that would mean direct confrontation with NATO. Secondly, al-Asad wants to see the Rojava project destroyed, so northern Syria would be easier to re-integrate into a new (old) centralised Syria. Mostly though, there are no resources to oppose the Turkish invasion. Of course, being left alone by both the Syrian regime and Russia will likely make Kurds and the other inhabitants of Northern Syria look for other allies.
      In general though, the big players, like Russia, Turkey and Iran all have a ‘Kurdish problem’ and the only way they know to deal with it is suppression – unfortunately. Sadly, there are no enlightened rulers in sight.

  • Smaug

    What surprises me is that there at has been little activity on the long Kurd/Turk border in eastern Syria, I haven’t seen any news articles about it anyway. A series of Kurdish cross border raids in that area could have distracted Turkish forces away from Afrin, but instead the Kurds appear to be leaving each other out to dry just as much as anyone else.

    Those filth Turks and their head chopping puppets should be stopped and kicked outta Syria asap

    It was not president Assad that used chemical weapons against Syrians rather it was Obama and Trump brutal regimes that used chemical weapons against Syrians. I was a bit surprised that how a country leader use chemical weapons on its own people. So now its completely clear..

    • schiamachy

      I agree Rob, but for some of us older ones the long time experience of US false flag operations to restore democracy or free the people were all about enriching Americans and hegemonic control to control resources. Korea, Chile, Venezuela, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Vietnam, Iraq, Libya and so on. This is why the Deep Super State ( the joint security and military sectors of the US and its allies and corporate bankers) is so upset and trying to use a massive propaganda program against Russia and China to get public approval for trade sanctions and massively increased spending on weaponry and subversive interventions.
      The problem is these allies have deservedly lost the support of their citizens because they have neglected infrastructure and public services leaving their peoples lives impoverished and heading for wide scale ecological and social disintegration.

      Red Baron, go hang yourself, and the russian “subhuman slaves” destroyed your “free and superior” Wermacht, the SS, hanged Goering (they were also in Nuremberg) and a lot more, etc., etc. Go die somewhere else, stupid nazi.

    • Bob

      Nope – Russia has deftly set the two leading NATO conspirators against the Syrian state, Turkey and US, on a collision course in Syria.

  • Starlight

    Penny dropping yet? Southfront’s constant glorification of the Turkish invasion causing you to have doubts?

    Again- Putin has voted for every key Deep State resolution at the UNSC.
    -Putin gave America the greenlight to slaughter Russian irregulars who were working for Assad.
    -Putin gave explicit permission for Turkey (NATO) to invade Syria, against the wishes of Assad.
    -For years, Putin forced Assad to recognise the ‘rebels’ of East Ghouta as the ‘official opposition’ and ‘negotiate’ with them.

    Behind the scenes, Putin has agreed to the partition of Syria, hence the NATO invasion, and Putin finally cleansing East Ghouta in what will become the ‘Russian sector”.

    Putin isn’t the Deep State, but he wants to sit at the same table, and thinks the Deep State leaders far, far, far more important than the lives of ordinary people. It’s the broken psychology of ‘elites’. You have more ‘respect’ for the opponents at your ‘level’ than your ‘friends’ at lower levels.

    And Putin is the very willing dupe of the jews. A fatal combination.

    • schiamachy

      Putin just has more intelligence than you Starlight, he recognises no one will gain from WW3 and that it is worth negotiating with rebels who really are Syrian because when the fighting is over political settlement needs to occur. Furthermore when some agreement occurs and a group leaves the Jihadist alliance it is a psychological loss to the terrorists. And remember the civilians?It takes some pressure and threat off their shoulders allowing escape zones through the enemies lines.

      Disinformation, fake news and propaganda. FO

  • Rob

    Now Russia, China, Iran and Pakistan could open their military bases in Jordan, Syria and Palestine to arm and train them. They have not helped them on time to save their countries from US and Israeli migrants and this was a big mistake.
    Still they can open their military bases in Jordan, Syria and in Palestine if they want to protect them from further human and land loses. They should help them to rescue and liberate all regions that under US and Israel control.

    THE PUTIN DEADLY MESSAGE TO US AND NATO MILITARY

    If you mess up with Russia then Russia will hit you so strong that their will be no recovery from that.

    Washington should remove their illegal occupation on land and on sea around Russia.

    Washington should stop rubbing nations and countries. Washington should stop their evil and wicked practices on other nations and countries.

    Regimes in Washington have wrongly accused nations and butchered millions of innocent civilians in the world and now it is time to disarmed Washington completely for the safety of humanity and of our world.

    • Joe Dirt

      Russia should end it’s illegal occupation of Ukraine

      • jorge

        Go study history, and learn about how many citizens Ukraine has that are ethnic russians, speak russian, etc., etc. Part of that citizens rebelled themselves against Kiev authorities, others are critics of Kiev politics (Karkhov, for examle), so, you are saying that ukrainian citizens are “russian occupiers”, ant it seems that you want a ethnic massacre.

        • Joe Dirt

          if you studied history, you seem to have the same logic as Hitler.

          • jorge

            Hitler begun by Spain, where there were no germans, not by the Sudetes.

          • Joe Dirt

            You either don’t know history or delusional

          • jorge

            Thanks for the your comment, you can be sure that I’m going to keep it as a good example of a discussion between a historian and a nazi provoqueur. About Ukraine, “the same logic as Hitler” only could be a comparison with the Sudetes affair, nothing more (and the Sudetes affair wasn ‘t to protect the germans living there, was to conquer the all Czechoslovakia). Hitler begun by fhe Civil War in Spain, giving support, as Mussolini, to Franco’s troops, in 1936. More or less as the USA begun by the Iraq after the desintegration of the URSS. Hitler, as the USA today, intended to conquer the world. If you wanted discussion, you would not write biased generalities with no substance and would support what you write with facts, but, as you are nothing more than a provoquer, you can´t help it.

          • Joe Dirt

            Why do you keep talking about Spain?! :D

          • jorge

            Provoker, go to hell, I don’t have time to you.

          • Rob

            Hitler was hundred times better than today’s regimes in Washington.

      • Rob

        Moron read the history, Ukraine is the part of Russia (Modern USSR) Due to Washington and NATO interventionist for time being it has separated but their residents not they are still united. FO

        • Joe Dirt

          Read history past USSR, oh wait I forgot your commie fking country burned all the real history books.

          • Rob

            Russia is a Modern USSR, Wakeup. Russia is not a country like France, UK and US that sinking in debts. Each year Russia attracts new friends for joint industry of science and technology development and for prosperity.

          • Joe Dirt

            The first is the fall in the price of oil in 2014. Crude oil, a major export of Russia, declined in price by nearly 50% between its yearly high in June 2014 and 16 December 2014.

            Russian is to oil and natural gas dependent. They will go broke one renewable energy becomes the norm.

          • Rob

            Russia is not just dependent on oil and gas fields rather Russia has a strong and advance high tech heavy defence industry. At this moment Russia has the order of US$ billions of values of defence products. The Russian SU-35, S-400, T90 tanks etc demand is so high.

          • Joe Dirt

            export records are public information, i suggest you review them. Russia is very dependent on oil and natural gas. So much when oil prices fell Pooptin was flying all over the world trying to negotiate with oil rich counties to stop production, in order to inflate the price of oil again.

  • The Ottoman /dolf, Erdogan should have been stopped when he first invaded Syria seizing the “Euphrates Shield”, but world “leaders” dithered and chose appeasement, just as they did 80 years ago. This emboldened the Mad Sultan and now he has taken Idlib and Afrin. /dolf II’s own threats make clear that he intends to extend his conquests to the full extent of historic Ottoman realms and beyond. Yet the effeminate Western “leaders” like True Dope, Maricon, Theresa Maybe, Germany’s Mad Fuhrerin, Mutti Merkel and the waffling Trump are either doing nothing or condoning the Mad Sultan’s war ambitions.

    • Moshe Dummstein

      I would not want to use this kind of language and degrade myself to your level but allow me to say this: you are a complete piece of garbage. you have no shame; you are vulgar and invidious. I don’t know about the Turkish Leader, but your associating him with A. Hitler just shows what you are made of and whose pawn you are. it is indicative of the magnanimity of A. Hitler that he did not eradicate your ilk and your puppeteers when he had every means to do so.

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    150,000 Kurdish army heavily armed with Americans weapons, Israeli Air-force and NATO satellites and intelligence. And they are the most worthless fighters on planet earth today.
    Just 15 Yemen flip-flop worriers could slaughter all 150,000 CIA and Navy Seal trained Kurdish fighters.
    Kurds are beneath the Saudi Arabia military.

    • jorge

      150,000? Where?

  • Davki

    It is like I said: The YPG, standing no chance in a set piece battle situation, resorts to guerrilla action. In the latter, the YPG can use their strength: Intimate familiarity with the terrain, friendly countryside, small, mobile, highly adaptable units. The TAF might experience what many occupiers have before: the real war begins after they’ve supposedly won.

    • Skagos

      TAF has been fighting PKK’s HPG guerillas for 30+ years and HPG do not even control a fucking ROCK in Turkey. This so called “guerilla” fight is just so they can keep their pride against their fangirl base.
