Turkey remains committed to its war on Kurdish forces in Iraq and Syria despite sustaining some serious losses and facing pressure from Russia.

In Iraq, the Turkish military operation against the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in the Kurdistan Region, codenamed Operation Claw-Lock, is still ongoing. The operation, which was launched on April 17, is mainly taking place in the areas of Metina, Zap and Avashin Basyan.

On May 25, Turkey received a large blow when five of its soldiers were killed and two others were wounded during clashes with the PKK in the Claw-Lock operation area.

On May 28, a Turkish soldier was killed and another was wounded in the Kurdistan Region as a result of an attack with an improvised explosive device that was attributed to the PKK.

On May 29, the Turkish Ministry of National Defense said that a soldier had died of wounds he had sustained as a result of an unspecified attack which took place in the Kurdistan Region two days earlier. The PKK is also suspected to be behind the attack.

The new casualties bring the number of Turkish troops killed in the Kurdistan region since the beginning of Operation Claw-Lock to 19. Despite these losses, Turkey will not likely end the operation any time soon. Ankara claims that its military has killed, wounded or captured 158 fighters of the PKK, so far.

In Syria, Turkey continues to deploy reinforcements and mobilize its proxies in preparations for a new operation against the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). As of May 29, Turkish military buildups were reported in the northern and northwestern Aleppo countryside as well as in the northern Raqqa countryside and the northern countryside of al-Hasakah.

Russia, who opposes any new Turkish military operation in Syria, has already taken steps to deter Ankara.

Between May 26 and 29, Russian warplanes carried out a series of patrols, airstrikes and reconnaissance sorties over Turkish-occupied areas in northern and northeastern Syria.

In order to increase its aerial activity over these regions, Russia deployed several Su-34 fighter bombers and Ka-52 attack helicopters in the al-Qamishli Airport in the northern countryside of al-Hasakah on May 28. On the same day, the Russian Military Police conducted a joint patrol with the Syrian Arab Army and officials from the SDF along the frontlines with Turkish forces in the northern al-Hasakah countryside.

Russia appears to be determined to prevent Turkey from launching a new military operation in Syria. Both Moscow and Damascus have key differences with the SDF. However, they believe that any new Turkish operation against the group will only worsen the humanitarian situation in the northern and northeastern regions.

The Kurds used to be a nomadic people. Syria allowed them to settle. They have not paid the Syrians back very kindly. They have allied with the enemies of Syria. Kurds are grasping and greedy, not living in harmony with others. Do not be soft on them, when others want to harm them, do not go out of your way to protect them. For your troubles, you will make an enemy out of the enemies of the Kurds. The Kurds have a lot in common with Erdo and the Turks, with the two faced US. When they cry, why us? Tell them that they were enemies of the just and their friends just used them, to hurt the just. Hence nobody will stand up for them or cry for them apart from Putin who is kind to a FAULT. Please do not take too much trouble in saving the Kurds from Erdogan. Let war break out between the Kurds and Erdo. Perhaps the Kurds will notice that the US is not really a friend to them either, they may all harm one another and Syria with Russia can get them out of Syria. Let the peaceful Kurds remain, those who do not steal Syrians resources who do not ally with the enemies of Syria and those who make a contribution.

It does exist stuffs called ‘books’. Between them, ‘history books’. Try the thrill of opening one and read it, instead of mouth-FARTING.

thoughtful

so what history books give you a thrill?

HUMAN

In your case, ANY! But read them!

Kurds were never nomadic. They were fierce warriors. Xenophon first mentioned them. It was their assistance to The Ottoman Empire and they were rewarded with the land they conquered on the the Ottomans’ behalf. Maybe you are reading the wrong books. Otherwise you would know their role in the ethnic cleansing of the Christians in Anatolia (Assyrians, Armenians and Greeks). Since we are focusing on Syria , kurds fled there ,seeking shelter from the Turks during the beginning of the 20th century. And it is how they repaid Syria. Of course the normal Kurds cannot be blamed. I for myself have grown up with Yilmaz Guney’s films, so I sympathies with those that have sincere and peaceful goals.

USA incompetence helps Russia

I believe the goal of the US is to use Kurds not only in Syria but in other countries like Iran. They want to copy the method they used in Syria and bring it to Iran. To carve out a piece and then use it for US bases.

Yes

This is a fight between Turkey and YPG not between Turks and Kurds. Kurdish islamists support Turkey.

HUMAN

Yes, the renegades join always MERDolfgan and ITS UNHUMANS

Chris Gr

It is Kurdish Islamists. In Iraq, there were the Kurdish Islamic Union. In Syria, there is the Saladin Brigade and some more radicals have joined Tahrir al Sham.

Lol Russia … the Russians are going to Ukraine more and more because it is so difficult for the Russian army to progress in Ukraine. Syria is gradually being emptied of Russian soldiers. it’s not 2 planes 3 helicopters and 10 bottles of water that will scare the Turkish army. big mistake of Russia to have helped Assad, Assad does as he pleases he uses Russia to always do harm. results the war continues. Assad had given weapons to the YPG against Daesh, results they are trying to create a state. in truth the YPG is a big task for Assad, as long as the YPG is the Assad cannot get his whole country back. if the YPG is destroyed and peace reigns in northern Syria. Turkey will have nothing more to do in northern Syria, it will be over. Turkey’s goal is to see Daesh the YPG on its doorstep and above all to send Syrian refugees back to Syria.

Turkey wants to annex at least parts of Syria. This is just excuse.

Bayraktar

No it’s wrong, annex for what ? To have millions Arabs in Turkish Republic? No we done with Syrians.

Chris Gr

Annex for resources

Afterthought

If anyone attacks Turkey is NATO obliged to intervene?

Someone tell the Kurds: The embrace of America is the embrace of death.

In fact yes but nobody in NATO will fight for Turkey, and Turkey know it

When the zionist state attacked a Turkish ship in international waters and killed some its crewmembers, NATO article 5 proved to be worthless.

These Kurds are US proxy forces, so NATO will stay out of it anyway.

Rodney Loder.

Kurds joined up with Zionist jew maggots when it looked like jew pigs would rule for ever, now that complexion is changing as the US is being beaten in Ukrsine Afghanistan and everywhere else, so Kurds had better crawl away in Syria, they got it wrong, simple as that. Anyhow I Jesus Christ could go to Syria and help convince Brother Erdogan that his help in toppling jew Kurds in Syria is graciously accepted but after defeating the Kurds in Syria in order to end PKK Turkey should accept the thanks of Syria and evacuate its forces from Syrian territory. Mind-you Brother in spirit Vladimir Putin deserves the highest award possible and if he believes it’s necessary to restrain Brother Erdogan in Syria I think that is the way it should be.

Not all Kurdish factions are the same, but some of them are siding with the zionist state. I have no sympathy at all for those. It is also just plain stupid, because the zionists will sell them out at the first moment it no longer serves their interests to support them.
