On October 7, a Turkish service member was killed in an attack that targeted a position he was manning near the village of al-Twais in the Turkish-occupied part of the northern Syrian governorate of Aleppo.

According to Syrian opposition sources, the attack, whose exact nature remains unclear, was carried out by Kurdish forces which control a strip of land to the south of Turkish-occupied areas in northern Aleppo countryside. The Syrian Arab Army and the Russian Military Police maintain troops in the Kurdish-held pocket.

The slain service member was identified by the Ministry of National Defense of Turkey as Marine Corps Private Tayfun Özköse.

A few hours after the attack, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out three airstrikes on the outskirts of al-Twais. The airstrikes didn’t result in any casualties or material losses.

The situation in the northern countryside of Aleppo has been unstable for the last few months. A Russian-Turkish de-escalation agreement that was reached after the Turkish invasion of Afrin in 2018 is being violation by both Turkish and Kurdish forces on a regular basis.

Last month, a Turkish officer was killed and four service members were wounded in the northern Aleppo countryside in a tunnel bomb attack carried out by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces.

The Russian airstrikes on al-Twais may have been a warning to Turkish-backed militants who have been provoking Kurdish forces with their repeated attacks and continues shelling.

I doubt Turkey will respond full force, unless they want more for their soldiers dead


Fuck jihadist moghal guppu. I hope more are killed daily.


Good, I’m glad the Mongol wanna be died, one less brainwashed radicalized terrorist the world has to deal with. I mean look at his face, there is not a single drop of Turkic blood in his veins yet this moron died thinking he was the same people as Mongoloid looking Kazakhs, Uzbeks, Uyghur, or Kyrgyz. As much as I hate seeing fellow racial indo-Europeans dying the people in Anatolia are brainwashed beyond hope. Pure mental illness.

Most of the “Turks” living in Anatolia are in reality, descendents of Greeks, Persians, Italics and many Southern Slavs, like the Serbs, Croats, Bosnians, Bulgarians and Illyrians who became their elite Janisarry infantry.


Yeah I know, and to be honest I genuinely feel bad whenever I see one of them die because I can see this guy is a racial comrade but as of now many of them are radicalized beyond hope. It’s going to take years if not decades of reprogramming to get them out of their Mongol wanna be delusional state and that’s not going to be possible unless we somehow take control of the state itself. That’s how the Jews did, they took over the Ottoman Empire through their Young Turk proxies and spread the ideas invented by Jews like Arminius Vambery, David Leon Cohen, and Arthur Lumley David aggressively in Anatolia in order to spread this new identity. There was a lot of resistance to this from the masses at first but with time and repetition you can brainwash people to believe anything.
