On March 5, the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) captured the villages of Ballursanak and Alciya in the Syrian area of Afrin from the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), according to the Turkish meda. The advance follows the March 4 succcess of the TAF and the FSA when they captured the areas of  the center of the Sheikh al-Hadid district and the villages of Mistekan and Araendi north of it.

The YPG’s defense is slowly collapsing in the Afrin area as the group has nothing to counter Turkish attack helicopters and warplanes as well as lacks military equipment and artillery guns.

On March 5, the TAF’s general staff said that at least 2,777 “terrorists” had been neutralized since the start of the operation in Afrin. On the same day, Turkish President Erdogan vowed that the TAF is ready to clear the city of Manbij – located in another part of northern Syria – from the YPG. The statement hints that the Turkish leadership is not going to limit its anti-YPG operations by Afrin.

    Of course, clear YPG terrorists from Mandjib (not kurdish), from Raqqah (not kurdish), from Deir ezzor (not kurdish).

    YPG must stop helding syrians arabs, armenians and Assyrians hostages.

      Youre such a hack. There is no such thing as terrorism, only militaries and militants. People use the word “terrorist” as a propaganda tool. Youre no better than the Americans or the Israelis

  • Serious

    They claim to fight Assad because Assad is a “dictator”. After that, they act as dictators. Just like in Libya.

    Nobody voted for YPG, SDF, FSA, …. Nobody voted for Basma Kodmani. Make a democratic fight Basma Kodmani vs Assad and Assad will win 95% to 5%.

    Like someoine said once, anti-fascists are the fascists of the future.

      Basma Kodmani is a leftover of the old Muslim Brotherhood days in Syria , she fled the country when they found out she was a French spy. This is the most stupid and unreliable policy Analyst I find as she is one of those Oxford policy institute people.

    Erdogan has been threatening to take manbij for 16 months. 16 months from now he’ll still be making threats.

      Before doing an invasion, the west threatens decades before. The west always has the same modus operandi. First, they demonized. Second, they make sanctions. Third, they invade military using a scapegaoat and useful idiots.

      Erdogan had noted how the west proceed and how the west do and take the same strategies.

        Erdogan didn’t learn to make alliances and form coalitions yet. There are many countries that would send token forces if Turkey requested.

        Turkey has been CRUSHING the Kurds in Afrin. Turkey will subdue the Kurds in Afrin, whether it takes 6, 16, or 24 months. A

    The Kurds in Afrin are doomed. No allies. Tons of enemies. No supply lines. No antiair. They are almost like the Palestinians of Gaza

  • Time for Kurdish sobriety about integrating the Syrian governmental apparatus in the areas
    the Kurds would like to call “their” home.

    I would guess the Russians are standing by for same.
