Turkish Soldier Killed, Three Others Wounded In Attack On Syrian Border

On July 7, cross-border firing by unidentified gunmen in Syria’s northeastern region, where Kurdish forces are in control, killed a Turkish service member.

The gunfire targeted a Turkish military vehicle patrolling near the border town of Senyurt in the southeastern Turkish province of Mardin.

According to a statement by Mardin’s governor office, the driver, identified as infantryman Cihan Ciftcibasi, was severely wounded and three other service members sustained light injures when the vehicle then overturned. Ciftcibasi died of his wounds in the hospital, while the remaining three soldiers are recovering.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, yet. Elements from the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) may have been behind the attack.

The SDF launched cross-border attacks against Turkey from northeastern Syria in 2019 as a response to the Turkish-led invasion of the region. Since then, the Kurdish-led group has confined its attacks to Turkish forces inside Syria.

The Turkish military has not yet responded to the cross-border attack. A harsh military response by Ankara may further destabilize northeastern Syria. The ceasefire in the region, which is sponsored by both Russia and the US, is barely holding on.

Hindu Fungus

LOL, your little midget FM is in Tehran kissing Iranian arse in earnest, you have to be the dumbest troll even by shitty Indian standards :)


How do the chinese fit into the picture you dumb twat?


these hinds came begging to iran “ouh please help us we are miserable and we will lose everything” and they think we care


Shia and turks are enemies


that sounds absurd the turks are nato member and therefore enemy of islam in its entirety and just a notice mayority of syria is sunni and the kurds which are turkeys enemies are sunnis

Turkeys are being carved

The Arabs historically hate the upstart Mongoloid Turkey savages who are treacherous and resistance will only grow as the Turkeys are stealing Arabs lands in Syria and Iraq along with oil. Erdogan is a cowardly moron who thinks that like Zionists he can annex 10% of best Syrian lands. He has a thing coming and it is not even thanks giving.


Turkish clowns are being given enough rope to hang themselves. The SAA & allies will do the rest of the work.


turkey better leave nato soon or you are done


turkey causes a sunni sunni conflict which will end up totally delegitimizing turkey and destroying it in the end since turkey is basically fake a project and it has only a future with the acceptance of the rest of west asia


Turks are low intelligence brutes. It is said that killing a Turk is like much like taking the life of an insect or fish. They have no feelings and cannot even grasp when they are being killed. They just stare with cold, blinking eyes until the blood runs out.

Brother Ma

Fucking Turks, always sticking their nose in other peoples’ business. Fuck off and die.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
