Turkish General Staff: 343 'Terrorists' Killed In Afrin

The Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) and the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (TFSA) have “neutralized” at least 343 “terrorists” including members of the YPG, the YPJ, the PKK and even “Daesh” [ISIS] since the start of Operation Olive Branch in Syria’s Afrin, the TAF’s General Staff claimed on January 26. The TAF also destroyed 23 targets, including strong points and ammunition depots, on January 25 night, according to the general staff.

This was not the first time when the TAF claimed that its forces combat some mysterious ISIS terrorists in the Afrin area. The provided numbers of the “neutralized” YPG/YPJ/PKK members are also very questionable.

Kurdish forces have also released the very similar statements. On January 24, the YPG claimed that it had killed 203 members of Turkish forces, including “tens” of the TAF’s servicemembers. Kurdish media outlets also claimed the TAF shells settlements in southern Turkey to blaim the YPG for the civilian casualties.

Obviously statements like these are just to give legitimacy to there invasion under the guise of the coalition, the numbers mentioned could also be vastly exaggerated. Taking a look at this type of theatre and the past 5 years a quarter of this estimate would be a more appropriate figure, however until more “facts” come out I could be wrong!?

Family of 7 buried under rubble today students are told to stay home , these are the real Turkish targets are civilians to create a humanitarian crisis to get the US/NATO to sit on more Syrian land. The Coalition Ravagers and Looters are always planning and playing games with lives , they don’t care.

Looks like the Ottomans are focused more on Twitter Jihad than in actual fighting.


Teacher was Trump.

Sounds anachronistic. Trump Admin is 12 months old.

More like Jihadi Lister and Jihadi Julian, but it’s the former Lister who now gets paid by Turkey, now waiting for Ken Roth to even send more cheery messages to Turkey.


Greatly inflated numbers. Likely.

On the other hand, SOHR, reasonably reliable as far as number of casualties go, reports significant numbers of casualties, including civillians, of which there are already many reports.

Anthony Paul Mapes

SOHR, honestly wouldn’t believe that as a credible source. The man works from his living room in the south of the UK and has been proven to be a active supporter of opposition forces, majority of what he pumps out is western proper gander that the White House loves to source! Amak is more reliable than him and that’s saying something..

Tudor Miron

Anthony, in case you don’t know – Dutchnational is a well known troll here – similar to SOHR in terms that he’s anti Syria, anti Assad (freely elected president of Syria) and pro Kurdish no matter what they do (genocide of other nationalities, inviting invading foreign powers (US) into their home state Syria, grabbing Syrian lands etc).

Quite new to the platform, but enjoying mostly interesting back n fourths. Cheers for the heads up!

Something you may not know he is also a member of Al Qaeda and controlled by MI6.

Toxicus Mechanicus

Boasting with something normal human is ashamed of is sick. Their place is in some mental institution.
