Turkish Defense Minister: PKK/YPG Will Be Buried In Its Own Trenches In Manbij

Members of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) “will be buried in the trenches it has dug” near Syria’s Manbij, Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar told lawmakers in the planning and budget commission at the parliament on November 1.

“The terror group [YPG/PKK] is digging ditches in Manbij as they have done in Afrin, despite promises made for PKK/PYD/YPG’s withdrawal from Manbij,” the defense minister stated according to the Turksih state-run media. “The terror group should know that it will be buried in the trenches it has dug.”

The defense minister added that Turkey will also continue its operations against the PKK in northern Iraq “until the terror threat from Iraqi territories is defeated”.

Ankara described both the YPG and the PKK as terrorist groups, the only difference between which is that they operate in different countries. The Turkish campaign in northern Iraq is mainly focused on destroying the PKK infrastructure with airstrikes. In Syria, Turkey employs a wide range of miltiary and diplomatic tools.

Earlier this year, Turkey and the U.S. reached a deal on the withdrawal of Kurdish armed groups from the town of Manbij. However, Ankara is not satisfied with its implementation and Turkish top officials coonstnatly threat the area with a military oepration. At the same time, Turkish forces are clashng with and carrying out strikes on YPG/PKK targets near Kobani.

    There may be a Trojan Horse play in motion by the US & Turks in the
    Kurdish regions. Whilst an independent
    Kurdistan is unlikely to receive enough neighbouring support to survive, the same region dominated by US, Turkey &
    ‘FSA’ militants will have plenty of support from Turkey with US-NATO backing. Perhaps the
    anglozionists current plan is to establish “FSA” militants in the Syrian Kurd regions and as the Kurds
    are pushed back the US & Turkey use the excuse of staying
    in Syria to defend the ‘FSA’ against the inevitable Kurdish “terrorist”
    attacks. Given Turkey’s frequent treachery and US willingness to adopt
    any proxy this can evolve rapidly despite Turkey’s economic concerns.

      One Unified Syria…Under One Flag… or the Russians, Syrians, Iranians & Hezbollah will have lost the War….they won’t let that happen…every piece of Land the West has Stolen Shall be Returned…the Kurds already have had plenty of time for Negotiations…. if they don’t Listen there will be a Genocide I’m afraid…. Turkey wants to get rid of’m for once and for all if its possible… Negotiations with the Russians & Assad seem to be the Turds best option….

        So you believe Assad will kill every Syrian that opposes him or at least get his boot firmly on their neck. Russia will be propping up Assad and co for the next 20 years at a cost of billions every year. And then there are the body bags headed back to Russia. In less than 10 years the poor and starving Russian people will tire of Syria and bring their boys home.

          In ten years IsraHell will be gone..(they overplayed their Hand)….and its occupants back to where they came from or turned into sharkfeed (perhaps it will even be U.S. Marines who will obliterate Y’all for 911, Larry Silverstein & the Dancing Israelis)….if they couldn’t make it across the Mediterranean…the U.S will be back to Herding Sheep… just like the once mighty Mongols….the World will not forgive their War Crimes….

    Still they have time SDF, PKK and YPG should quickly decide that they are with West or East.

    Turkish threats and actions against Kurds designed to defend ISIS. Turkey succeeded in drawing Kurds away from fighting ISIS in the South to defend their people from the threatened Turkish invasion in the North.

    • Rob

      What are you talking about? US and Co supply weapons and funds to Al-Qaeda, ISIS etc. ISIS cannot fight even single day without the support of US and Co.

      • R Trojson

        Yet Russian coalition just gave at least 4 truckloads of supplies to ISIS last week as reported right here.
