Turksih Military Strikes Area Near Government Convoy Entering Afrin (Video, Photos)

Donate

The Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) are not happy that Syrian government troops are entering the area of Afrin where Ankara’s Operation Olive Branch against the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) is ongoing.

Users watching Lebanon’s Al Mayadeen TV noted that the TAF had struck the area near the road where the government convoy was heading. According to reports, the incident took place near the village of Maryamin, east of the YPG-held city of Afrin.

No info about casualties among government troops is available.

According to the videos circulating online, the government convoy consists of at least 20 different vehicles, including pickups and armoured vehicles.

          What are you talking.about? My post is in regard to Turkey shelling the road, which we all saw but u called it lies

  • Proud White Kuffar

    well if turkey attacks SAA that will be problem so I hope then Russia will do something about it!!!!!!

    • Joe

      No Russia would not for sure..

      SAA chose to go in and doubt with Russia’ greenlight.

      SAA is on its own… for whatever reason they want to go in when Kurds are still aligned with US

      • King_GeorgXIII

        Its a dance on the Edge ! Assad has to do something to show the kurds he will protect them!! But he cant go full in and confront Turkey! He has to gain the support of the people and force the YPG PKK And SDF to give up arms or leave! Turkey is watching and is giving it a chance!

        • PZIVJ

          Excellent point here.
          King George replying to George King. :)

      • George King

        SAA has not gone in! There is no deal! Why has SF been publicizing rumors from PKK/PYG/SDF/US for the past week? What we are seeing is Kurds from Aleppo area flying NDF flags but are not acting under Syrian or its alliances permission.

        This is fooling no one and maybe allowed to play out to draw all traitors (as Assad has called them) into either a killing zone or identification process of who is and is not holding (allowed to hold in future) Syrian citizenship of the sovereign Syrian nation.

      This is exactly what America want. Attack a NATO member and WW3 has begun.

        No, attack a NATO country. Turkey is in Syria right now.

            Nope they wont! Becuase russia is bombing Turkeys proxies from the start inside syria! Russia doesnt want war! But it is ready for a war like this! The USA pushes for war but isnt ready for a war like this!

          • dutchnational

            Nato is a defensive Pact. As Turkey attacked Syria, they cannot invoke art 5 of the Nato treaty and rightly so.

            One can only hope Turkey will suffer major losses in Afrin and Idlib.

          • Jim Martin

            Point well taken. Its is important that all of this be framed as the “Erdogan Regime” not Turkey, or the Turkish people. Like Egypt in 2011 is was important to separate Mubarak from the people and even the Army so that they do not feel attacked by the International community or you and I and they then rally around the regime as they feel they are also under siege from us. This is the only way to separate the good people from the extremists

            There are legions of good people in Turkey, the Turkish people, and even the TSK in 21st Century Turkey that are horrified by what the “Erdogan Regime” is doing, and it was in fact part of the TSK who lead the coup in July 2016 after they were told in May/June 2016 that they were being given immunity from prosecution in fighting terrorism in Turkey. If It is terrorism then there is the rule of law, so why do they need immunity if they are conducting legitimate counter terrorism operations and not oppression? Why do they need a state of emergency since July 2016 unless the terrorists and oppressors are actually the “AKP terror nest’ in Ankara?

            I strongly do not believe that the he coup in July 2016 had anything to do with Kurds, Gulen or international actors, but was a cry for help and an forced change after we international let all Turks suffer in silence under the Regime. For years it was in fact the TSK that kept Turkey secular and allowed it to travel towards a democracy (and no not all of them were saints, not even by a long shot). And the Erdogan turns around with his extremists and calls the coup “a gift from god” so he can stage his own hysterical pogrom against all non extremist Turks from any denomination

          • jerry hamilton

            I hope you guys are right. I am not as trusting.

          • TiredOfBsToo

            That’s correct. A Kurdish state east of the Euphrates can’t replace a country like Turkey in NATO. That’s the long and short of it.

          • jerry hamilton

            You lost me.

          • TiredOfBsToo

            Turkey -> 2nd largest military force in NATO. NATO has 24 military bases in Turkey (http://www.turkishnews.com/en/content/2013/03/24/natos-eastern-anchor-24-nato-bases-in-turkey/
            Look at a map of the region. Turkey borders Iran, a US and Israel target for aggression. Turkey also borders Russia, another target of the US. Turkey also borders the Baltic states. Turkey is situated on both the Black and Mediterranean Seas. Nuclear weapons and radar are staged on Turkey’s lands.

            Now let’s compare Kurds east of Euphrates. Kurds -> landlocked, no access to seas. Kurds could manage up to 30,000 troops if the US trains and arms them. Kurds would be forever a target of Turkey and it’s neighbors making US bases there untenable.

            Hope that helps.

          • jerry hamilton

            Thank you for that but the bit that lost me is…..
            “A Kurdish state east of the Euphrates can’t replace a country like Turkey in NATO”.
            Why did you mention it?

          • TiredOfBsToo

            I mentioned it because the US will have to choose now between it’s allies, Turkey or the Kurds. It’s a lose lose situation for the US. If it supports Turkey, it loses the hopes of breaking up Syria of which it already controls a substantial portion of it located east of the Euphrates where most of Syria’s resources lay. The US has no troops there and relies on the SDF to occupy and hold it which it would lose if it chooses to support Turkey. On the other hand, if it chooses to support the Kurds and their SDF, the US and NATO stands to lose big time as there can be no comparison between what a relationship with Turkey provides the US and NATO strategically, versus what one with the SDF dominated Kurds east of the Euphrates would provide.

          • jerry hamilton

            I personally expect America to ship the Kurds out and use them elsewhere.
            They are less expensive than American soldiers and they are good.
            The problem I have is I don’t trust America in the slightest.
            Netanyahu won’t let them give up either.
            They will come back with something dastardly.

          • OmerAytac

            Turks will not let Israel attack Iran from its soil.. Turkey gave names of 50 israeli operatives in Iran to the Iran gov’t. Israel, having lost 40 years of work, is the biggest Turkish enemy since then and is trying to take over Turkey anyway it can

            US/NATO coup attempt in 2016 was just a continuation of that attempt. Another 40 years of CIA work in the making squashed in 6 hours. US / Israel can’t put in place another plan for a long time to come.

            Turks will use Turkey’s strategic location to create trade routes, not war zones. Unlike the US, trade is more lucrative for Turks than a war economy.

          • TiredOfBsToo

            “Turks will use Turkey’s strategic location to create trade routes, not war zones.”

            Sounds good to me. Life on this planet would be much better if all countries acted in such manner, unfortunately, the US is governed by unelected psychopaths with politicians just being used as pawns and it’s population as potential cannon fodder.

        • Hanny Benny

          that was Putins calculation
          let aggressor-turkey burn in long term

          • TiredOfBsToo

            I believe Putin thinks far ahead. His KGB training helps him in understanding how the ‘west’ functions while his Judo training conditions his mind. The US on the other hand acts more impulsively (as most others do) while believing that it has thought out thoroughly several moves ahead of it’s opponent; I’d say more or less along the lines of playing a game of chicken without understanding it’s opponent.

    • Man Dagang

      Dozens russian mecenaries already slaughtered by sdf & Usa they are in the state of chicken shits

  • FlorianGeyer

    The Turkish shelling of the SAA route opens up the shelling of Turkish ‘Observers’ in Idlib when the time is right.
    Perhaps this is is all part of the SAA/ Russian strategy?

    • BMWA1

      Loose cannon.

    • as

      My take though. SAA would forces Kurds into negotiations with Erdogan with Kurds disarmament as the main deals with SAA responsible for it’s enforcement in Afrin. Simply put another Deescalation zone.

      • FlorianGeyer

        That is quite possible .In this mad war events change daily :)

      • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

        yes, tell the kurds to surrender their weapons in exchange for SAA protection, this should get turkey to back off

        • Jim Martin

          “Protection”? Should we laugh or cry?

          The SAA will have to prove themselves and deploy air defence against the Afrin Invasion otherwise they are a sick dog stretched too far and “begging for Moscow’s permission to go to the washroom” Air Defense is necessary to take the wind/hot air out of this illegal invasion of what was the most stable, peaceful non crazy part of Syria since 2012 when the Assad regime abandoned Afrin Canton and the residents and now the SDF/YPG/YPj had to defend its people against the crazies

    • MoonMan

      The observation points are part of the astana agreements

      • FlorianGeyer

        That is indeed correct but the issue of the SAA entering a part of Syria de facto annexed by the YPG and at the request of the YPG with thus far unknown agreements is a perfectly legal action for the SAA.

        If the SAA is able to secure the borders of Afrin and disarm or recruit the Kurds into the SAA , it it surely negates the Turkish argument of ‘ Securing the border from YPG terrorists ?

        There has just been a declaration from Turkey that the SAA has withdrawn from Afrin. We will have to wait for the proof.

        • MoonMan

          If SAA would disarm them. turkey would fall back they said that 2 days ago

          • FlorianGeyer

            It would be better if the Kurds accepted the writ of Damascus and that the Kurdish fighters joined the SAA and fully re-integrated with the Elected Government of Syria again.

            President Erdogan could then move on Manbij :)

    • Hanny Benny

      Putins long plan runs fine
      drag turkey inside syria
      turkey lose support from NATO (because of hisself arroganz)
      let turkey shatter in long term

      • FlorianGeyer

        Its President Putin’s Judo skill of using an opponents weight to their own disadvantage :)

  • Serious

    Turkey must negociate with Assad and surrender.
    kurds must negociate with Assad and surrender.

    No other solution.

    After that, Turks go back to Turkey and kurds go back to Iran. Sunnis terrorists go back to USA, UK, France, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

    Expell western ambassadors and close relations with USA, UK, France and Netherlands.

    Ask Putin S300 and S-400 and start building your own weapons to denfend yourself from israel.

    So that, Syrians can leave in peace.

        Turkey should have never attacked Syria in first place. Never follow USA, you will be destroyed. Now, the situation is against Turkey. Erdogan should have known that USA will betray him. He must have done a deal with Assad.

        But, I don’t know why, he chose to fight Syria what let kurds to create an independent state.

        I don’t understand why Erdogan is agaisnt Assad. Assad is not a threat for Turkey. So, Never play against yourself.

          • Serious

            You don’t understand that a lot of syrian sunnis support Erdogan. The Ottoman was a caliphat and was not a colonization where Turks colonize Muslim lands to kill them and replace them.

            As you can see, ex-ottoman nations don’t speak turkish and are not racial turks. The fact is that a lot of syrian sunnis support Erdogan and want to topple Assad to replace by a syrian sunni friend of Erdogan.

          • Hanny Benny

            you are right
            i know this facts
            that’s the reason of jihadism in syria

            not all sunnis support islamists and
            there a lot of sunni soldiers in SAA
            and stable situation in “liberated” rebel-country
            also in turkey only 50% support blind erdoKhan
            many live in fear now and stf.. have some turkish/kurdish/alevite friends

          • OmerAytac

            ottoman does not mean islamic. there’s an interesting story that the pope offered the keys to europe to the ottoman sultan if the Ottoman state became catholic. At the time there were more orthodox christians under Ottoman rule than muslims. Sultan showed the pope the middle finger.

            “some” turkish/kurdish/alevite feedback won’t do. get to know turks from other sides too. nobody in turkey supports anyone blindy. everybody has their own interests. everybody is pretty much their own sultan. it’s not a tribe. it’s a complex society.

          • OmerAytac

            What do you mean with this question?

        • OmerAytac

          could it be because ASSad massacred 1 million of his own people? and created 3 million refugees in Turkey? and helped create a PKK state in the east of syria? and because ASSad is a SOB?

      • Eskandar Black

        They could do this. It would be illegal and expensive. The real question is, after the dust settles, who is left standing. Hard to say. but not Turkey.

        • OmerAytac

          Iran has lost how many generals/soldiers in the last 4 years? Iraninan people are getting pissed? And assad? SDF has been continuously fighting 2 fronts – turkey in the north and isis in the south. They have all run out of breath – all are on incubators. Turkey has just entered the war 1 month ago. It has much more stamina. Much better financially, militarily than any other party. Perfect timing but more importantly -a diplomatic success.

          But don’t keep me from underestimating your opponent. That will just make is easier for them.

          • Eskandar Black

            turkey entered this war in 2015 when turks profited from their relationship with isis and seized lands in northern syria, like the thieving creatures that they are. Their success against the SDF in Afrin with russian blessing is going to be short lived.

      • OmerAytac

        why? what would be the benefit? having more arab citizens?? no thanks.

    • King_GeorgXIII

      Wrong only the YPG PKK SDF must surrender! and the USA has to leave Syria! The Kurds can fight in the SAA to protect syria!

      • Serious

        No way. Give independence to kurds in northeast Syria where they live. So that you solve the kurd issue and you create one big for Turkey.

        After that, close the border with kurds and enjoy your life.

        Don’t understand why people want trouble.

            They want half of Syria. And they will help to attack Iran.

            That’s the main problem when you have a multi-ethnic countries.

            Either you do like USA and you genocide the other ethni. Either, you let the other ethni live and give them independence. I don’t see other choice.

            The problem is that this part of the planet was living under a big caliphat. Atfer that,, the west came, destroyed the caliphat and created pseudo states. Now, these same west countries try to “solve” the problem. Of course, they are solving nothing, they are taking advantage of the situation.

            So, Syria better get rid of kurds ASAP. Maybe they will give 1/8 of the country but it’s better than to give 1/2 and have a lot of internal problems.

          • Adam Husein

            My “Serious” friend, kurds are already present in Iran, Irak and Turkey, and by the way in much bigger numbers then in Syria, where they came escaping from persecution and received shelter and were welcomed by arab syrians at the end of XIX cent.
            Now they are playing Washington’s game, and will be betrayed once again as it happened in Irak.
            Yet, Damascus considers them syrian citizens, as it always has.

            That’s the reason why syrian gov trusted them to protect the north and northeast of the country, when SAA troops had to retreat to save the west in 2012. And the sy gov was the first to give them arms and supplies.

            In 2013, none of the 9 kurd political parties present in northern syria was talking about desengaging from Damascus. That speech began after the entrance of 3 new parties from Turkey, in 2014, the new influence posed by them in kurdish political leadership.

            And this was used and encouraged by Washington’s criminal neocons for their historic partition and valkanization zionist plan which was put in practice from 2003 Irak invasion till present.

            So, thanks for your good intentions, but Syrians don’t wan’t, and don’t intend to be as generous as you propose.

            So, I partially agree with your first post, but give you my version:

            ► Turkey must negotiate with Damascus and surrender.

            ► Kurds must negociate with Damascus and surrender. Give back arms or be included as part of the Syrian Army. Political issues can be settled but always in the frame of a united and complete Syria, without giving up a single inch of land to nobody.

            ► Wahabi foreigner (majority) terrorists to jail, execution, or deportation (depending on the case), after national cleansing is completed.

            ► Pro-Wahabi syrian (minority) terrorists to jail, or reconciliation agreements and fix their status, after national cleansing is completed.

            ► USA, UK, France, Turkey, Saudi and Qatar, they can all together kiss our millenary syrian mesopotamian ass, and go fuck themselves.

      Now they are playing Washington’s game, and will be betrayed once again as it happened in Irak.
      Yet, Damascus considers them syrian citizens, as it always has.

      That’s the reason why Syrian gov trusted them to protect the north and northeast of the country, when SAA troops had to retreat to save the west (70% of the population) in 2012. And the sy gov was the first to give them arms and supplies.

      In 2013, none of the 9 kurd political parties present in northern syria was talking about desengaging from Damascus. That speech began after the entrance of 3 new parties from Turkey, in 2014, and the new influence posed by them in kurdish political leadership.

      And this was used and encouraged by Washington’s criminal neocons for their well-known historic partition and balkanization zionist plan which was put in practice from 2003 Irak invasion till present.

        Yeah i know but he’s no stranger to such attempt. Erdogan is treacherous greedy bastard but by all means he’s not stupid. His reign by the portrayal of MSM is dictatorial however there’s little instability post coup. At least none major I’ve know.
        So much to everyone dismay and contempt he’s in power for now.
        The only way the US can push with the Syrian partition plan centers around Kurds that have Turkey approval is if they dismembered Turkey just like Syria. For now it can’t happen. Erdogan used the coup and Europe general islamophobia very effectively that the current Turkey population will unite against any foreign incursion.

  • dutchnational

    Depending on what has been agreed between SDF and Assad NDF (?) entering Afrin is for the better of Syrian unity. Whether that should be a monolithic state or a federal state must be negotiated between Assad and Northern Syrian leadership.

    For Turkey this is, potentially, a disaster.

    If there is aircover, then TuAF cannot operate freely anymore over Afrin, which will reduce turkish capablities greatly.

    Likely the Afrin swamp has gotten worse for Turkey and Erdogan.

    • Jim Martin

      The SAA will have to prove themselves and deploy air defence against the Afrin Invasion otherwise they are a sick dog stretched too far and “begging for Moscow’s permission to go to the washroom”

      • Ronald

        All of Syria has had to defend the nation against these crazies funded and backed by the USA . The Kurds are mad to sleep with this enemy.

  • Manuel Flores Escobar

    YPG must be dismantled in Afrin and their member be part of NDF…Not be US contratist!

    • dutchnational

      As both YPG and US have stated, there is no cooperation between them in Afrin, neither are there any US military in Afrin.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        yes…. and you believe everything you hear? Academic question.

  • antoun

    only one hour the senior ypg declared no deal with damas!!

    • Rodger

      Seems like the senior YPG doesn’t control what he thinks he controls.

  • Joe Doe

    This can indicate that Erdegon has own agenda, Conquer Syria

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    SAA is wasting their time and resources. Turks and Kurd’s have a blood lust with each other.
    No force on earth is going to stop them from doing what they are genitally driven to do. Fight each other.
    SAA just needs to let it happen for 6 months straight till they grow tired, it will happen trust me.
    Mean time SAA has not send anything to go liberate the heat of Syria, which is the Golan Heights!

    • Ronald

      Start a war with Israel , right , as if Syria doesn’t have its hands full with the US camped on its oil fields and southern border .

      • John Whitehot

        Israel is literally crying for that to happen

  • israel first murica last

    Assad is a goner.

      I think your clock stopped in 2013

      • israel first murica last

        Well if israel wants you gone you’re gone

        • John Whitehot

          lolololol

        • jerry hamilton

          You could have a point. Israel is vindictive, murderously corrupt and can financially corrupt most nations.
          Their sickness will never end.

        • Gregory Casey

          This used to be the case but no longer.

  • World_Eye

    Motherfuckers Fucking Ottoman sons of a bitches, that Erdogan the Main HTS- ( Al-Qaeda ) funder in Syria with Weapons mush be drone or Kalibar strike in that house of his. That old pessimistic bastard, playing 3 sides, in the end both the US and Russia will fuck that Turkey up, he is playing with big fire, he threatens the US bitches in SDF areas that he will bomb them, which if do so he will be insta fucked, and now he threatens and even strikes at Syrian Government forces in which if he really do so, Russia will fuck him on the end if he attack the Syrian troops in Afrin.

  • Starlight

    The turks are totally HAPPY- all the nonsense you see saying otherwise is FOR SHOW. Kurds have gotten a whipping once again and their aspirations for an independent bloc that could be used as a seed for an independent nation dashed.

    Turkey wants the kurdish regions in Syria under firm Syrian government control- for then the kurds live under Syrian law- which supresses any military ‘terrorist’ ambition by those kurds.

    This is where Southfront always FAILS- its so-called ‘analysis’ that simply rehashes the psy-op talking points of the jewish controlled mainstream media- and takes these LIES as fundamental ‘facts’. Whereas you COULD crack open a history book, read about the history of the kurds in the entire region, and their long troubled relationships with the various powers that run the nations with significant kurdish populations.

    As with all ‘independent’ movements, kurdish ‘terror’ ebbs and flows with time. Kurds do ‘best’ militarily when they are temporarily the cat’s paw of a foreign power – but never as anything but ‘useful idiots’. None of the great powers want kurdish ‘independence’, nor do any of the local nations.

    And all this designed to take attention from the AMERICAN zone of control in Syria- every recent Trump pronouncement has stated America is there to stay, and will increasingly focus on murdering Russians and bring the ‘regime’ of Assad down.

    C’mon ! Smash assad communist bastards! Kill ’em all! :)

      lol go get a life little gypsy ahahaha

  • Huzbin Farteen

    Great President Erdogan tell Assad and Putin STOP or you will be slapped!

    Assad and Putin now stop march on Afrin. They know Erdogan too powerful for them.

    • John Whitehot

      do you really people is that idiotic?

  • Ice Icegold
  • Davki

    Erdogan seems rather certain, that Syrian regime support for Afrîn is only in token. He’s apparently also certain that Russia and Iran have no interest at all to support the Kurds – on the contrary. And yet, these countries might still understand that giving rights to their Kurdish minorities is a better way than eternal suppression. This operation may still become Erdogan’s grave stone, even though, right know, Syrian forces will get their a**s handed to them by Turkey.

    • Joe Dokes

      Erdogan already claimed they turned back and Afrin will be captured in two days. If he can’t do it he will be labeled the biggest clown since Baghdad Bob.
