YPG Claims 5 Turkish Soldiers Were Killed In Guided Missile Strike In Northern Syria (Video)

Donate

On December 14, the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) claimed that their members had killed 5 Turkish soldiers near the village of Kimar in the Afrin region in northern Syria.

According to the statement, the attack was carried out with an anti-tank guided missile on December 14.

On December 13, the Turkish Armed Forces admitted that at least one of its soldiers in northern Syria was killed in an attack by the YPG. In response, it carried out a series of artillery strikes on positions of the YPG and the Syrian Army near the town of Tell Rifaat. The YPG attack was allegedly conducted from this very area.

    Hard to blame the Kurds for fighting Turkish invaders. What will it take to get them off of Kurdish land?

    • PZIVJ

      Kurdish land? LOL trollson
      If FSA moves across the border to the east, look for the casualties to increase fast.

      • Icarus Tanović

        Turkish apes will must have get the Hell out the Syria. Assholes and elbows, Erdogan is ape, wahhabi protector. Fuck im.. Maybe Syrian gov can make talks (not with americans and zionists) about setling things down.
        Then, both Turkish humanoids and american sotonists are fuckwed in their ass.

      • R Trojson

        Turkey wants to take on the US military. How idiotic is that play. Erdogan is not liked here in the US, kind of think everyone here would agree to get ride of him if he attacked US troops. US already has Erdogan’s replacement living somewhere in Pennsylvania. His apartment lease is up soon so the CIA wants to move him back to replace Erdogan.

        • PZIVJ

          So you admit the US is behind the attempted assassination of Erdogan in the failed coup attempt, or are you posting from Tel Aviv ?

    • Icarus Tanović

      You crazy?

      • R Trojson

        You response does not make sense. Are you disagreeing or agreeing with me.

        • Icarus Tanović

          Turks are with Americans, am I right? Are you too?

    • Willing Conscience (The Truths

      Russian Syria and the Kurds will kick out the Turks [specifically Erdogan and his party], with Trumps approval and blessing. A new Turkey without Erdogan in charge will be everyone’s friend, and that’s what’s going to happen if Erdogan loses in Syria, he’ll lose power in Turkey too.

    • verner

      there is no kurdish land – remember what happened in northern Iraq not long ago and that is what will happen here as well, Turkey and Syria will put them back in the fold, supported by the disorganized morons of amaerica or not!

  • verner

    come on now, the kurds and ypg are terrorists in the eyes of Turkey and they should thus be exterminated or at least forced back into the fold. too many parties doing too much of killing and since the disunited faggots of the white house is where they have no right to be and is backing ypg/kurds it’s one way to clear the deck is to go after ypg/kurds and then you’ll see how much Turkey’s nato membership is valued by the dis-organised faggots of the white house/pentagon. if they stick with ypg/kurds Turkey is likely to wave goodbye to nato and that is good,for the world and bad for israel, which would be good.

    and once Russia tells Turkey to withdraw back within their border Erdo will do just that!

    • s Slippy

      And then intergalactic space patrol tells Libya to eat spinach and convinces Turkey to return to NATO which is also bad for Israel?

      • verner

        turkey is happy to have the kurds stateless in the border area but they won’t ever be allowed to form its own state. the same applies for syria, iran and iraq, so basically the kurds are fu,,cked, truly fu..cked and from what we know about the kurds present bff,,
        the dis-united ars..es of the universe, they are about as trustworthy as a heroin-addict with 10 bucks in his/her hand, i.e. not at all. so then Libya, another state the dis-organized faggots of the world managed to fuck up seriously, another snafu on that banner. they should be proud of the millions of deaths they have caused over the last 70 years – starting in korea and so on! truly something to be ashamed of.

  • Nowruz

    I don’t like Erdogan’s invasion of Syria, however, I want them the kill all those US-backed Kurds who didn’t even want to hold talks with the Syrian Gov. on a potential solution towards peace. Eventually, the US will portray the Kurds. History has proven this. On September 25, 2017, the Kurds voted for independence in Iraq and the US said, “the referendum was unnecessary and said it would undermine the fight against Islamic State in the region.” In time the US will stab the Kurds in the back again. In the future the US maybe willing to create a Kurdish autonomy but they will be landlocked between Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Turkey. Common sense should be never to make an enemy of your neighbors.

  • occupybacon

    Turkey will not invade where USA rules the sky, without their permission I bet on a false flag by Erdogan.

  • Patriotic_White_American

    The Kurds are a nightmare for Turkey

  • RichardD

    The YPG/PKK embedded with the SAA in that buffer zone between Aleppo and Afrin is a problem. As long as it continues, it will not only be a potential source of friction between the SAA and TAF resulting from YPG attacks on the Turks in Afrin originating from the buffer zone. It will also give the Turks a reason not to withdraw from the buffer zone that they’ve set up inside Syria along their southern border. This plays right into the Jew partition plan where the Turks replace the Kurds as Yinon plan partition partners in NE Syria.

    Under normal circumstances where they’re not being subjected to attacks originating outside of their borders, the Turks should simply guard their southern border and stay out of neighboring countries. But in the case of both Syria and Iraq they are being subjected to attacks originating in Kurdish areas of both Syria and Iraq. That neither central government is mitigating properly. In the case of Syria, with the exception of the Aleppo/Afrin buffer zone, they can’t because of the US occupation and partition project in NE Syria. And in the case of Iraq. The central government is allowing terrorist bases to operate in the Kurdish area from which the attacks on Turkey are originating.

    • RichardD

      “The meeting was held on 16 September, and it was announced that the two sides had reached an agreement. The deal included that a demilitarised buffer zone will created to separate the two sides, stretched from about 15 km to 25 km (9–15 miles) that will come into effect by 15 October. Troops from Russia and Turkey will patrol the zone, and Jihadist rebels have to abandon the areas, and retreat further in the Idlib province. The agreement also states “all tanks, MLRS [Multiple Rocket Launch Systems], artillery and mortars belonging to conflicting parties will be withdrawn from the demilitarized zone by October 10.”[38][39][40][41][42][43] In the deal, it was also included that the M4 and M5 highways, are to be open by end of the year, linking respectively Latakia and Damascus to Aleppo.[44]”

        Old news chimp, why’d you post it for. We want to now what the new agreement entails, not the old one that worked like a broken wheel and we already knew all about, you stupid chimp, what a waste of time posting something that’s no longer relevant.
        But I’m not wasting my time now, I’m enjoying myself, picking the scab off your wound, does it feel just as good when someone’s doing it back to you :] I’ve still got a few more posts to send to catch up to you. Cheers copycat chimp.

        • RichardD

          You clearly have a sick and twisted mind in the gutter. The DMZ agreement is the only agreement that is open source. And it’s got a couple of more weeks to go before it is officially in default of all of it’s deadlines.

    • RichardD

      The DMZ agreement deadlines will finish tolling in a few weeks for reopening the Idlib highways with Turkish and Russian patrols. From the looks of it this portion of the DMZ agreement will fail. At that point what has been accomplished might amount to 25% of the entire DMZ agreement being implemented, and 75% of it not implemented at the expiration of all of the agreement deadlines. At that point an assessment will need to be made as to whether it’s worth granting an extension for implementing the remaining 75% of the agreement. Or if it’s not worth bothering with because the prospects for further implementation are to limited or non existent. And it’s necessary for the Syrian government coalition to resume clearing operations using military operations and reconciliation agreements in the face of NATO objections based on “humanitarian” concerns and intervention threats.

      • Willing Conscience (The Truths

        What the hell does all that mean, I don’t even understand it, are you a lawyer chimp, it sounds like the sort of paperwork I’d get from a lawyer, or maybe it’s just written in chimp language, that’s probably why I can’t read or understand it. Cheers chimp.

        • PZIVJ

          In short form: Turkey not doing their job in Idlib, eventually SAA will have to clear out the Jihadist rats. ? :)

          • Willing Conscience (The Truths

            Thanks but I did know what it meant, it’s like the fine print on a contract, all goobldy gook talk to confuse the issue and allow for non compliance later on if things don’t work to the letter of the agreement, as I said gobledy gook talk for lawyers to fight over. I could have said it better with just 2 sentences and made it easier to understand as well, so no one would be confused, even the not so bright or people who don’t speak English very well, and who would also like to know what it meant. I don’t like lawyers, they’re all dumb f–ks pretending to be smarter than everyone else but aren’t, just devious chimps like RichardD.

            Yes that’s exactly what it means, but what does the new initiative entail, we haven’t got the details yet, this is from the old agreement and the new one’s very different to the old one on a few major points, HTS for example. Also the fact Erdogan has been emboldened enough to threaten an invasion of eastern Syria, and moved troops there to do it, and also isn’t looking like backing down to the US either, make me think there might be something else in the new Astana agreement that we’re not being told about, yet. Cheers.

          • RichardD

            So you admit that you lied. There isn’t a new agreement that’s open source. Only consultations and negotiations.

          • Willing Conscience (The Truths

            That’s right chimp, so why did you post what you did, it’s now irrelevant and until we find out what the new agreement’s actually going to cover or not cover, we won’t know. So far the only official statements say HTS is now fair game for everyone, unlike the earlier agreements whereby they were only considered targets if they attacked anyone, humanitarian corridors from HTS controlled areas, and a separation of Erdogan’s forces from areas HTS operate, but the rest of what we know is just a continuation of the last agreement with little change. But sources keep talking about a lot of different things, some that contradict each other. Erdogan will spill the beans and let us know anyway, whatever he does now will be allowable in the new Astana agreement, or right on the edge of breaking it, and that’s when we’ll get to find out what this new Astana agreement really means, and probably not before.
            You’ve had heaps of bananas today, you’re all fired up, have a few more chimp, you’re still going to need them.

          • RichardD

            Yes, once again I proved that you lied.

            I analysed the existing agreement because that’s the one that’s currently in place. It’s strengths and it’s weaknesses. And it’s what anything subsequent to it will be based on.

          • Willing Conscience (The Truths

            You analysed an old document that is no longer relevant and didn’t even work in the first place, good on you chimp. Have you worked yet out it has nothing but weaknesses.
            It has no strengths at all no matter what the old or new one says, unless the new one says get the F–K out Erdogan or we’ll kill you, go hassle the SDF in US controlled territory, if you read that anywhere I’d call that a strength, wouldn’t you chimpy.
            Now tell me my newest lie little chimp, or are you getting confused because you’ve had too many bananas.

          • RichardD

            Your false accusations are baseless. Unlike your lies that I’ve outed over and over again. I provide proof that is credible, supports my points, and makes sense. You provide evasive material that doesn’t support your lies and idiocy. Just to pretend that you’re proving your points. When all that you’re doing is demonstrating that you can’t. And that in fact you’re a moron wasting people’s time with your senseless stupidity.

            The DMZ document was partially implemented with far less loss of Syrian life than if the SAA had to clear those areas. To what extent it has been implemented is open to debate. But there are published reports that some of it has.

            The Syrian press is reporting withdrawals of terrorists from Idlib to Turkey:

            “by the pro-government Syrian newspaper al-Watan.

            According to al-Watan, turkish military has transported a significant number of militants from the demilitarized zone in the Syrian province of Idlib to a tent camp in the Turkish city of Nusaybin on the border of the two countries, al-Watan reported on Saturday, citing local sources.”

            https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201811251070105824-syria-idlib-turkey-militants-transfer/

            There are numerous reports of substantial heavy weapons withdrawal from the DMZ:

            “Syrian rebel fighters have pulled the last of their heavy weapons from front-line positions in Idlib Province, meeting the deadline for a truce negotiated by Russia and Turkey — and possibly sparing the civilian population from a bloody government offensive.”

            https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/10/world/middleeast/idlib-syria-cease-fire.html

            The Turks are getting partial compliance. Whether it’s enough to extend the deadlines is something that is currently being negotiated.

          • Willing Conscience (The Truths

            Hey chimp do you notice HTS isn’t attacking the SAA, even though the SAA and the Russians are attacking them. and have you noticed the people fighting each other in Idib now are the 2 parties that aren’t supposed to be, the SAA and the NFL/FSA, you know what that means don’t you chimp.
            And do you even wonder if this new invasion Erdogan’s proposing might have something to do with what was agreed to in the new agreement/negotiations in november, not meaning he was given a green light to invade, though that is a possibility, but meaning whatever he managed to swindle out of the agreement would suit his purposes if he did decide to invade, I do chimp.
            Sometimes they don’t want anyone to know what they agreed on, and only release what they need to, we might not find out what the real truth is for another decade or more, that’s the way it works chimp, you have to work it out for yourself, learn to read between the lines, don’t just copy and paste everything they or anybody else tells you, look with your own eyes, use your own brain.
            And I should have added in my last post, reconstruction was agreed to at Astana, all they need now is for the US to lift sanctions so some other countries can join in. Cheers chimp.

        • RichardD

          There are 3 reasons why you might not be able to understand it. You’re IQ is much lower than mine. If that’s the case, I’m not going to fault you for it. You’re lying, or you’ve got mental issues impairing your ability to think straight. Or a combination of 2 or more of the above.

          • Willing Conscience (The Truths

            IQ, mine was 128 in secondary school year 2, on the odd occasion mid 130’s Highest 136, but just once as low as 109. What’s yours? Hang on you’ve called me a liar every time you’ve posted me, that was a waste of my time wasn’t it, you won’t believe me anyway, what about if I say 95, would that sound about right, maybe even 90, I couldn’t type a sentence if I say anything lower.
            I’ve met people with lower IQ’s than me that I think are very smart, but then again I’ve met people with much higher IQ’s than me and thought they were as dumb as monkeys, so even if you told me you had an IQ of over 200 [which I wouldn’t believe] I’d still call you a dumb chimp. Cheers chimp.

          • RichardD

            Not only have I called you a liar. I’ve conclusively proven it repeatedly. While you have disproven nothing that I’ve written. The difference between us is that I talk the talk and walk the walk. You haven’t gotten to the talk the talk stage yet. If you were so smart, I wouldn’t be running circles around you rubbing your nose in your failures every post.

            you talk shit,
            And in the case of Iraq. The central government is allowing terrorist bases to operate in the Kurdish area from which the attacks on Turkey are originating
            ——
            blatantly untrue as well as impossible, anyone can check with a simple google search. Stupid chimp do you think all Kurds are the same.
            ——
            The Iraqi central government isn’t allowing anything to happen, they couldn’t stop it even if they wanted to, they can’t even put a foot in the area, the Peshmerga control it totally. The majority of them are pro KDP and don’t like the PKK or even YPG that much, and they’re mostly pro Turkish or at least impartial. The minority PUK fighters that also make up the Peshmerga are anti Turkish and probably do let the PKK and PYG operate there, that’s what you should have said.
            —-
            And you have the gall to keep calling me a liar, you try to tell me ballistic missiles don’t fly at mach 15 or 20 and ask me to prove it to you, when I link you wiki articles you still call me a liar, you are a nut job for sure, not just stupid.
            I hope everybody reads and checks the shit you post me, you’re about as wrong as you could be about just about everything you say.
            Don’t eat any more bananas, they’re making you go crazy, eat some human food for a while, I can be mean to cruel stupid chimps, but I can’t be mean to crazy cruel stupid chimps.

            I talk the truth that you hate.

            “The Iraqi central government isn’t allowing anything to happen, they couldn’t stop it even if they wanted to, they can’t even put a foot in the area, the Peshmerga control it totally.”

            No the peshmerga is not totally in control. The Iraq government closed the border crossings and airspace over northern Iraq and kicked the peshmerga out of Kirkuk and other areas after the secession attempt.

            The Iraq government could hit those PKK camps with airstrikes anytime that they want. they’re well aware of where most of them are. And or insert an airborn or ground force like they did in Kirkuk and elsewhere. So that the Turks don’t have to get involved and the PKK with the KRG’s consent wouldn’t be attacking Turkey like they are.

      -“And in the case of Iraq. The central government is allowing terrorist bases to operate in the Kurdish area from which the attacks on Turkey are originating.”-
      Hey chimp, The Iraqi central government isn’t allowing anything to happen, they couldn’t stop it even if they wanted to, they can’t even put a foot in the area, the Peshmerga control it totally.

      -“Something needs to be worked out with the Syrian government on resolving the Idlib terrorist holding pen, and embedding YPG/PKK terrorists with the SAA in the Aleppo/Afrin buffer zone”.-
      Yes you are right, something needs to be worked out, the Turks have to be KICKED OUT of Syria, as well as the US, and the Kurds have to help Assad do it, that’s what needs to be done chimp, not what you said, that’s the LGBTQI way and totally unacceptable. And you say I shouldn’t call you a closet LGBTQI chimp, I can’t call you anything else.
      As to the rest of it, I actually agree with you chimp.
