Turkish Army Deploys Within Only 7km Of Afrin City (Map, Videos)

By TRT TV, click to see the full-size map

On March 7, the Turkish Army and its proxies from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) captured the town of Mash’alah of the Shara district, only 8km north of the city of Afrin, according to FSA-linked sourcces. Additionally, the Turkish Army reportedly captured the Maydanki Dam and the village of Hallubi Sagher northeast of Mash’alah.

Earlier, the Turkish Army and its proxies advanced in the southern part of the Shara district and captured the villages and towns of Kafr Janneh, Tall Hamu, Shirkan, Metinli and Qatma and Tel Hamu.

Kurdish and Turkish sources reported that the Turkish Air Force (TAF) had stepped up its aerial operations against the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in the center of the Jandaris district, west of Afrin. At least two women were injured in the TAF’s bombardment.

Meanwhile, the YPG press announced that YPG fighters had repelled several attacks by the Turkish Army and its proxies on their positions in the southern part of the Shara district. YPG fighters destroyed a tank and an armored vehicle belonging to the Turkish Army and killed 34 Turkish Army soldiers and FSA fighters, according to the YPG press.

The Turkish Army and its proxies will likely reach the outskirt of the city of Afrin and capture the Jandaris district center in the upcoming days. During the last week, most of the YPG’s defenses north of Afrin collapsed.

    it looks the myth of the kurds been warriors, is fading away and reality setting in.

    • Estorilista (Sargakekek)

      Well , you see, it’s one and a half month now, and Turkey have still not been able to capture Afrin district with its airforce, armor and manpower.

      • Lelouch Vi Britannia

        its a tactic you dumb. Turkey tries to kill as much as possible terrorist here. Thats why Turkey waits ypg=pkk send more reinforces. Also tries minimum casulties. 2900 pkk terrorist already died. Operation is running sucessfully.
        Its win win situation for both Assad and Turkey

          The killer satanists have their supporters and you are one of them.

          • Lelouch Vi Britannia

            They are not killer satanists , they are heros and saviours of Syria. They kill Us backed terrorists.

          • enrpreit

            You can say that an elephant is a bird but the real terrorist is the AKP Erdogan government and his baked FSA Ggangs. There are a lot of videos that reveals their terrorist actions, not only on freedom fighters but on civilians too.

        • arief

          do not be afraid, Kurdish nation has a lot of stock.

        • Michael Tingirides

          Most probably the Turkish demons will prevail in the end in the Afrin area but in the long term this Satanic nation (well known for its genocides & ethnic cleansings) will collapse because arrogance and terrorism never prevail in the end. The international community may tolerate for the time being Turkey’s current arrogance, viciousness and contempt of international law to protect their economic interests, but in the end their patience will run out. This international pirate (Turkey) will sooner or later pay for its arrogance and lawless behaviour.

      • Hulusi Akar

        I thought Afrin was going to be vietnam for Turkey? Now your terrorist buddies are repeating the same meme about Turkey not capturing Afrin in a week. lol

        TSK said it themselves it will take atleast 4 months. And Turkey uses afrin as pkk meatgrinder. They bait all the terrorists into Afrin and destroy them. After Afrin -> Manbij . Manbij will have less manpower. ;)

        • Estorilista (Sargakekek)

          Well, 68 Turkish soldiers died by now, soit’s a meatgrinder for them, not only for the “terrorists”.

          • Hulusi Akar

            Where tf did you get that number? Out of your as s? 41 soldiers died. I dont know where u got that other imaginary 27 soldiers from.

          • arief

            Come on, abdull.. Airtrike is an action of bravery?? Close combat, will you?

          • Lelouch Vi Britannia

            Didnt pkk do same against others? They used Us airpower. But Us cant attack Turkey. You all know that. Turkey is not crap assad

          • arief

            “They used US airpower”
            Really? then, what do they pay for it? I told you before, all of you, do not drinking too much camel urine, like your brother, FSA, AL NUSRA, AL QAIDA (They are real terrorist).

          • Lelouch Vi Britannia

            Are you blind? Cant you see the truth? All Syria war is prepared to seperate syria and create kurdish country. Us gives full eq and airpower support. They hit assad and Syria to defend pkk

          • arief

            “All Syria war is prepared to seperate syria and create kurdish country.”
            I think, you should try ice cream, it’s delicious, you know .. and once again, please… please… do not too much drinking camel urine…. What on earth USA would do that, create Kurdish Country?? First, Syria War came up with Arab Spring, The Dream of The Virginity Hunter The Golden Caliphate, Islamic State. In this terms, the situation and condition supported by Hussein Obama, your uncle, the big devil. Off course Erdogan the donkey from the turks, happy for that.
            Second, Assad the Leader of Syrian people not willing to be dictated by the european leader (French, UK, German), Hussein Obama and Erdogan the dog,
            Third, War started
            Fourth, Assad should be lost by the virginity hunter, but Allahu Akbarrrr, saved by the grace of Russian.
            So it has nothing to do with Kurdish. In this case, Kurdish is a victim of the circumstances of the Arab Spring Event, including other minorities.
            What you need to take note of in this case is Hussein Obama, does not represent the entire interest of the American Society. Americans know that ISIS and army right wing are formed by the permission of Husein Obama. That is why if Hillary Clinton was elected president, then she will continue the policy of Husein Obama. Especially the problem of Syria, there will be a very big war involving the USA directly and dealing with Russia. But thank God, Hillary Clinton lost the USA election. Trump supports the Kurds because it is more effective than Erdogan. Why? Erdogan himself hides ISIS. Can be proved when the siege of Kobani, ISIS hide in turkish border, that is why Trump no longer willing to cooperate with Turkey. Similar to Pakistan, that’s why all funding is stopped by Trump. How can we give funds to quell terrorists instead used to develop terrorists, this is called a double agent.
            Well, find another point of view, you will find the truth.

          • notdutch

            You are wrong. Why? Because the world is sucked by vampire imperialists including US and you are still believing their fake agenda and news. Imperialist are experts on creating public revolts like Arab Spring (ref. lawrence of arabia). US backs kurds in order to place a shiled for israel. Thats it.

          • arief

            When speaking of imperialism, Arab is the real imperialist. They invaded the entire peninsula of Africa, Spain and the Middle East, to the land now inhabited by the Turks. Where was it all then. If you want to be fair, return it to the real land owner. Syria to Asyrian, Armenia, Cyprus, Greeks, Kurds, Farsi (Persian), Coptic, African and Bynzantine. But they never learn from history. So do not blame and point the nose one country only. What Turkey has done is clear and definitely WRONG. How the story strikes on the grounds of terrorists to other countries. It’s the same as attacking the Malaysian state by Thailand because in Malaysia there are international terrorists known as Jemaaah Islamiyah. Or the Indonesian state attacked Malaysia because Jemaah Islamiyah members bombed Jakarta. Does that make any sense? There is International Diplomatic Law. The problem is, Erdogan the rotten dog, does not recognize the legitimacy of the legitimate Assad in Syria, that is why he simply, took the decision to attack through the borders of another country. Erdogan Bad Dog

          • notdutch

            Being an empire is different from imperialism or colonism. To judge if a historical organisation is an empire or a vampire, you can check the territories if they still have their native language and traditions are protected. Arabs and Turks didn’t convert people by force. All territories that were governed by Arabs and Turks are still speaking their native language. Now, look at the places that became colonies of england, france etc. They speak english and french while they are struggling poverty. You are calling the president dog because he is successful in issues that you disapprove. But if we swear all people that we do not like, then anger grows between groups of people. The real actors in Syria issue are US and Russia. Turkey and Iran are trying to defend their rights.

            the second link is two year old. The first link starts with a name who is a suspect of the military coup so… It is very clear that Turkish economy can overcome cross-border military operations while affecting routines in the country. I know because i am here in Turkey.

          • arief

            It is becoming increasingly clear that Erdogan is trying to distract his people from the fact that he has no plans to deal with the whirlwinds that engulf the economy in his country by holding a battle with a group of Kurdish farmers.

          • notdutch

            Those “farmers” you say have thousands of weapons from US including heavy equipment. They also hold civilians for live shields. Otherwise, they would starve to death in the city while the Turkish army surrounded the city. But now, Turish forces will force through the city to save civilians. A similar event was occured in the last years in Turkey (Diyarbakir Sur). The battle is not for the distraction. It is for the border safety and it is very clear. The Turkish Government have asked its US ally not to feed YPG with weapons form more than a year but couldn’t succeeded. The operation was indispensable.

          • arief

            Those “FSA, AL NUSRA, ISIS, etc” you say have thousands of weapons from turkish including heavy equipment. They also hold civilians for live shields in eastern GHOUTA. Otherwise, they would starve to death in the city while the Syrian army surrounded the city. But now, Syrian forces will force through the city to save civilians. The battle is not for the distraction but to endorse Assad’s presidency and the legitimacy of his power
            “It is for the border safety and it is very clear.” —–>> You already invaded other country, do not drinking too much camel urine, abdul…
            Why don’t your response the statement I’ve given to you about It’s the same as attacking the Malaysian state by Thailand because in Malaysia there are international terrorists known as Jemaaah Islamiyah. Or the Indonesian state attacking Malaysia because Jemaah Islamiyah members bombed Jakarta?
            Does that make any sense??
            “The Turkish Government have asked its US ally not to feed YPG with weapons form more than a year but couldn’t succeeded”
            They use it to kill ISIS, abdullll….. But your government, the turks, feed Al Nusra, ISIS, FSA, etc to dethrone the legitimacy of the people of Syria….

          • achiles Greeko

            Simple because turks were always playing the role of “Bitch” for zionist.
            Most of Bitches in US-american spy-agencies are turks.
            Majority of Bitches in Europe are turkish-Cunts.

            I got it from SOHR. It’s kinda reliable source.

          • Hulusi Akar

            LOL SOHR. PRO PKK SOURCE. Its 1 guy living in London. So you believe a fkin 1 dude living in london over the Turkish armed forces? What a clown you are.

            I just provided you proof and you still believe in sohr that claim only 300 pkk died. What a joke. He claims that 60 Turkish soldiers died while Turkish armed forces say 41. Yeah really reliable, buddy.

          • Estorilista (Sargakekek)

            So for you everything that is not Turkish, and says other things than the Turkish Armed Forces (which is on one of the sides in the conflict, so not reliable) is pro-PKK. I’m sorry, but then don’t say I’m a clown, because you are.

          • Hulusi Akar

            I believe statements with proof. If you have proof about your claims back it up and show it to me. I gave you alot of proof. I would definitely take the word of the Turkish armed forces rather than some rag militia terrorist. Its known that SOHR is unreliable. I follow this war since 2012. I am not going to discuss with a dumb kid that just claimed that Sohr is reliable.

            You should follow this subreddit if you want to learn about this conflict.

      • Serious

        Turkey has all the time. They advance carefully but surely. No need to hurry up.

        • dutchnational

          Right. Just having lost some 400 really dead people and some 100 tanks and APC’s is just fun for them.

          • Serious

            For Turkey, it’s better to have lost 400 dead and then stop “rojava” than to lost 1 million when kurds wioll invade Turkey USA in 20 years.

          • dutchnational

            Fact is we see Turkey invading other countries. Not the other way around. You are talking “fears” while I am talking facts.

          • Hulusi Akar

            Afrin is the proof that this is the beginning of the end of ypg/pkk/sdf. After Afrin the other yellow areas will be targeted + Iraq joint operation in qandil.

          • notdutch

            more than 30 000 civilians lost their lives due to PKK terrorism in Turkey.

          • Hulusi Akar

            There is no 400 death on Turkish side. And no way near 100 tanks got destroyed. Fukin liar that you are. 2 tanks got destroyed and 1 apc.

          • Joe Dokes

            You are correct, it is 374 Turkish forces dead, 6 tanks, 23 APC and 65 Toyotas destroyed as well as two T-A129 attack helicopters.

          • Hulusi Akar

            Delusional mor on. Feel sad for you. Believing those imaginary numbers so you feel better about losing afrin. You know what I allow you to believe in it. But you should not fool people on the internet.

            I am still waiting for that Ottoman slap your president promised me.

            he is a delusional, desperate dirty-ass kurd. How can you expect any truth from a 3rd class Marxist-Leninist human garbage. Just give them what they need: Kill more!

          • dutchnational

            Another troll.

            Both lying, posturing, wordchanging and namecalling does not change the facts.

            Turkey lost some 100 tanks, APC’s etc already, most even visible on internet at the moment they are struck – youtubes all over internet. The number of tanks is reported at around 30 to 40. (think of Al Bab where Turkey lost some 30 tank in a few days early 2017)

            As we all know you cannot rely on Turkish media that are not allowed to publish negative news.

            As for Turkish loss reports, those are not reliable either. Kurds report some 2 to 300 of their fighters killed, some 200 civillians killed and lossess sustained by TSK and TFSA now some 400, as reported by SOHR. SDF estimates the lossess of turks and mercenaries at over 2000, is propaganda just like the estimates of Erdogan, claiming some 3.000.

          • Hulusi Akar

            The troll is you here, the people here are mislead by you. I just came here on this website the other day I got shocked by the comments. If you really think that Turkey lost 100 tanks apc. You must be really dumb.

            And nowhere near 200 civilians died. Max 30
            The rest are terrrorists disguised as civilians.
            Btw jinderes got fully captured. No go cry, bitch.

          • Jim Martin

            I think that Erdogan and his brown shirts were counting rabbits, chickens and goats stolen from the local Afrin Populace. Every time they had a meal and “declared victory” You would think they gave their own forces some Turkish MREs? Or ins the money for the MREs in some AKP members house in Ankara, stuffed in a shoe box in their own residence?

          • notdutch

            fake news

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        so the turks went slow and safe or more safe. I would have expected the kurds to have more defense against air force but obviously the turks catch them with their pants down. That is how ti looks to me. because I also remember what the kurds was saying is going to happen.

      • khalkha

        Because they are not savages and criminals look at the eastern ghouta what assad and russia do they erase all by massive destruction. But turkish and opposition go slowly , limiting civilian casualities.

        • notdutch

          nice point

        • Estorilista (Sargakekek)

          Limiting civilian casualties? Did you see that Turkish warplanes are bombing civilian areas? By now, here are over 170 civilian casualties, and more than 5000 people fled from the area.

          • khalkha

            Yes limiting civilian casualities, you can compare between both situations. You said 170 i don’t know ,may be, but this in one month and half , assad and russia kill them in 2 or 3 days .that’s the reality turkish and opposition fight to the regular

          • Estorilista (Sargakekek)

            Yes, but Eastern Ghouta is a more populated area.

      • Efe

        Turkey is advancing slowly because they are destroying all the hard points, caves and tunnels the YPG thought would protect them, and they are doing it without major civilian casualties.

        They could have taken out the terrorists in Afrin by destroying every village, town and city like the USA and Russia & Syria have done

    • Hulusi Akar

      Everyone can be warriors against ISIS with US airsupport. Before the US intervened, ISIS would literally destroy them.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        from what we been allowed to see, I kind of agree with you, on this part.

      Against the the vile airstrikes there isn’t more to do.

  • dutchnational

    Slowly turkish invaders are inching forward and one has been hearing, more likes hopes of the reporters, that SDF/YPG forces are collapsing. Nothing like the sort has happened and is happening.

    Somewhere, if matters develop like they do at the moment, there will a moment that the city limits of Afrin will be reached. The largest numbers of casualties, on all sides, will be from that time on.

    It will be “interesting” to see how the “special police forces” as they call their specialised youngster killers, will fare against a larger number of better trained, armed adult fighters in a fortified city.

    • Hulusi Akar

      Keep the morale high. LOL

      • enrpreit

        The turkish dogs and the FSA rats could also conquere Afrin, but the people whose children, women and men were slaughtered by the aggressors will hate them for the eternity having a spirit of revenge, So what did kerdogan solve?

        • Hulusi Akar

          Operation olive branch is the operation with the least civilian casualties in the whole syrian war since 2011. Go make propaganda somewhere elso kurdo.

          • enrpreit

            I know that turkish soldiers and fsa gangs are good fighters and repect the prisoners and the civilians but only in the turkish press that after the purge is worst than toilet paper.

      There are 1,700 YPG reinforcements on the way, they will make taking the city of Afrin a bloody affair.

      • Moshe Dummstein

        plus the two of you; now that s some real reinforcement!

        • Joe Dokes

          Think about it, there are 50,000 YPG with more being recruited every day. They can turn an occupation into Turkey’s Vietnam and there is nothing Turkey can do about it because they are protected by the Turkey Master. Kurds from Iraq, Iran and even Turkey itself are joining up. Taking it is the easy part, and so far Turkey’s incompetent leadership hasn’t even been able to do that in 48 days when General Akar said it could be done in 3 days.

          • Moshe Dummstein

            I guess you are referring to the Turkish chief of staff. I will be grateful if you can please provide a link to this statement of his. Remember on such matters the only reliable information source is the website of that relevant department of state.
            you should have realized by now only the face value of the so-called news on ANY news website can be taken with caution.

            As for the Vietnam thing, I am not a sorcerer; I cannot tell. But there are some nations in this world such as germans, Russians, turks, of which the US is NOT one, whose militaries function on the true sense of patriotism, commitment, and sacrifice. They either win or loose; they don’t get stuck like the US did in many instances in history. The reason is their troops don’t get conscripted with financial prospects like the US mercenaries, who enlist dreaming of a brand new F150 and a house in the affluent neighborhood as opposed to the shack they grew up with their redneck relatives.

          • Joe Dokes

            If any country is full of flag waving, Quran thumping homophobic red necks it is Turkey. The real kicker is they actually have red necks. Erdogan wants to recreate the Ottoman Empire 100 years too late. The world order won’t tolerate it and if he keeps pushing it he will lose what little is left from the last time they tried it.

            Erdogan claimed several hours, max of three days too.

            As for your ignorant remarks on US military :

            Most US military live in camps with on camp housing depending on their ranks.

            Most of those joining do this out of either a sense of adventure or a sense of patriottism. In that they are hardly different than all non conscripts in all armies all over the world.

            I don’t correspond with kurds!!!

    • notdutch

      You label one side as “killers” and the other side “fighters”. From what i understand by looking to your comments during the past month, you want YPG/PKK to win the battle against Turkey. And most probably you are trying your best to support YPG/PKK by spreading bad news about Turkish Military (most of them are not true). So why is your nick name is dutchnational? Do you have anything to do with being a dutch? What you are supporting is fighting people for a goal while they don’t really know what they are serving for. They are tools of a small group of elite living in thousands of km away.

    Syrian NDF should leave AFRIN and abandon Kurds to the consequences of their felony.

    • El’ kerym

      tempting, true at that. but that will be a bad move in long perspective. it’s better to negotiate with kurds then with erdogan, but I agree that NDF should not waste too much effort until kurds fully agree to cooperate with Damascus govt.

  • PeakyBlinder

    This is about to get really interesting….and probably really bloody. The Kurds are not going to give up Afrin with a fight. They will not win. But, the urban fighting will not be easy and will be bloody…for both sides. Airstrikes are easier to accomplish when the enemy is out in the wide open. It gets harder to sue air power in urban combat, with civilians close.

    I would do one of the following tow things if I were the Kurds. I would negotiate a peace deal and give up all of Afrin, hoping that the Turks are satisfied enough to eave manjib alone. I might even give the region up to the Syrian government, so that the turks either have to withdraw or fight Assad. The second option would be to pull all of the Kurdish fighters back around Afrin, prepare for a siege, and hold the line. The siege option will result in a Kurdish loss.

    If I were the Turks I would keep doing what I am doing, strangling the Kurdish forces slowly. The Turks only worry now is what will Russia do? If Assad leaves the turks to take Afrin, then Turkey has no worries. If Assad starts to fight the turks a lot, well that could be an issue in the future.

    Either way, its gonna be real interesting to watch over the next few weeks.

    (I have no side that I support or hate in this. I am neutral).

    • notdutch

      it make sense for a neutral one. What i want to stress is, there wouldn’t be a war that Turkey involve if there wouldn’t be PKK and terrorists. The kurds in Afrin are mercenaries of the imperialists. So there is no option of peace for them. I am sure that Turkey is ready for all kinds of peace.

  • velociraptor

    faaaling rain, faaaling kuuurds….

  • Gabriel

    You really think the kurds are terrorists? The turks are the terrorists wake up. THE KURDS ARE WARRIORS its been 2 months of fighting and the turks only now they managed to capture a town with all their tanks and planes and proxies . THINK ABOUT THAT.

  • Alfred55

    I think the loss of Jandairis has pushed some of our Kurdish friends over the edge, based on the comments here.

    Anyone have the suicide watch hotline number for the netherlands?

  • Michael Tingirides

    Most probably the Turkish demons will prevail in the end in the Afrin area but in the long term this Satanic nation (well known for its genocides & ethnic cleansings) will collapse because arrogance and terrorism never prevail in the end. The international community may tolerate for the time being Turkey’s current arrogance, viciousness and contempt of international law to protect their economic interests, but in the end their patience will run out. This international pirate (Turkey) will sooner or later pay for its arrogance and lawless behaviour.
