On February 23, the Turkish Army and its proxies from the Free Syrian Army captured the village of Bafler in the Jandaris district west of the city of Afrin as well as the village of Maskah in the district of Rajo northwest of the city, according to the Turkish Anadolu Agency.

Moreover, Turkish and Syrian opposition sources said that Turkish Air Force (TAF) warplanes had conducted several airstrikes on positions of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) north, east and northwest of Afrin over the last 24 hours.

YPG fighters conducted a hit and run attack on a position of the Turkish Army in the village of Hekece in the Sheikh al-Hadid district west of Afrin, according to the YPG press. The source claimed that YPG fighters had killed eight fighters of the Turkish-backed FSA and had destroyed their position.

The Kurdish Hawar News Agency (ANAH) also reported that YPG fighters had destroyed two vehicles of the Turkish Army with ATGMs in the villages of Elaqina and Dayr Sawwan in the Shara district north of Afrin.

Meanwhile, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan revealed during a meeting with member of his party, the Justice and Development Party (AKP), that the Turkish Army is planning to besiege the city of Afrin in order to “cut the terrorists’ external contacts,” according to the Turkish news outlet Yeni Safak.

Experts doubted Erdogan’s military plans, as the YPG resistance will become more and more effective and aggressive as the Turkish Army and its proxies approach the urban areas in the center of the Afrin area.

    Erdogan will take over Afrin. He is indeed besieging Afrin circling the area. Once done, he has plenty of time to advance towards Afrin. People in this region will run out of food, water and ammos.

    And, for Erdogan, it’s not an islamic battle, it’s a nationalist battle. Contrary to Assad, Erdogan anticipate the kurd problem and target PKK and YPG. Assad was too kind with kurds and was too kind with sunni terrorists and was to kind with the west.

    Turks are more nationalists than Arabs. Syrian arabs betryed their own country for utopic religious or idealitics purposes. Turks never do such stupid things.

  • Ottoman War machine is on the march. Don’t wait like the world did in the 1930s. Stop the mad Sultan/Fuhrer now.

    Remember that Turkey was with Germany during WW1 and sign a pact of non agression with Germany in WW2.

    Also, the turkish lands west of Afrin were syrian lands. France give them to Turkey. USA gave Golan Heights to israel.

    Those Arabs are so stupid. That’s the main problem. They lose everywhere.

    israel has taken Palestinian lands and they do nothing about it.

    USA and the west is playing with them and they don’t undedstand. Russia is playing with Syria and they don’t care.

    That’s the bare truth. Syrians don’t care about their own land. A country only stand by his people.

    Time for international sanctions against Turkey for the annexation of a part of Syria. Just like the sanctions against Russia, after they annexed crimea.

    • khalkha

      Nothing to see with ukrania ,cause turkey don’t create new artificial state like did russia. But who want this are usa and israel as well to continue to divide

      • NeoLeo

        Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus is not an “artificial state”?

        • khalkha

          Why it’s an artificial state ?,turks lived since centuries there, but we can’t say that as much about russia,look in ukrainia and georgia they create 4 states in 10 years

          • NeoLeo

            Are you serious? Russians have been living there for centuries as well, they are majority there even today. What 4 countries? Russians did not create anything in Georgia, people there declared independence, Georgia accepted russian peacemakers, they did not invade like the turkish army in Cyprus (or today in Syria).

          • khalkha

            Crimea ,Donetsk, south ossetia ,abkhasia .Russian never occupied more than one century maximum theses territories ,they declared independence by the violence of weapons. as for turkey she’s make peace in its limits and she’s a neighbor of syria not russia which is an occupation force in all the country

          • NeoLeo

            Kiev was an ancient capital of Russia, the Russians have more claim on Donetsk than Turkey on Constantinople. Russia is in Syria legally, defending the people, and the legal and legitimate government from foreign funded terrorists, while Turkey is an illegitimate aggressor and nothing else.
