YPG Claims Its Members Destroyed Turkish Battle Tank In Afrin

REUTERS/ Revolutionary Forces of Syria Media Offic

On March 30, the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) claimed that its members had destroyed a battle tank of the Turksih Armed Forces (TAF) in the Bilbile district of the Syrian area of Afrin. According to the YPG, 4 Turkish soldiers were killed in the attack.

The Bilbile district is currently located deep behind the contact line between units of the YPG and Turksih forces in northern Syria. If the claim is confirmed by any photo or video evidence, this will indicate that Turkish forces have faced significant problems with securing the area captured in northwestern Syria.

Hint: The Turkish Army and its proxies captured the city of Afrin from the YPG on March 18. Currently, almost entire area of the Afrin is under the Turkish control.

On March 30, the TAF’s General Staff released a statement claiming that 3,820 “terrorists” had been neutralized during Operation Olive Branch in Afrin.

Additionally, the TAF said that at least 90 “terrorists” had been neutralized in the Turkish provinces of Bitlis, Bingol, Diyarbakir and Mardin provinces as well as in northern Iraq in the period between March 24 and March 30.

Earler reports appeared that the TAF had expanded its operations against the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in northern Iraq. The PKK is a Kurdish armed separatist group operating in northern Iraq, northern Syria and southern Turkey. Ankara describes the YPG as a Syrian branch of the PKK.

        I can joke all I want,kerdshits are just target practise. Now go cry your mascara out.

    We will listen lies from both sides. However, it’s clear that Afrin is not Idlib. Even in Idlib, which is almost Sunni, Turkey’s proxies have continuous internal fights that drain most of their resources. In Afrin, the FSA already had some internal fights and will always have to sleep with one eye open.

  • Rejneh Rejnah

    Bravo YPG…we are waiting for more heroic action against this terrorist army of invaders which under different names of ISIS or Muslim brotherhood or HTS or Al-Qaeda trie to establish a dark Khalifat under the authority of the criminal and money launderer Erdogan!

    • FSA – Democratic HeadChoppers

      Kerds are nothing more than live target boards though.

        After 30 years turks cannot defeat PKK, now the situation is worseing. The other day 1 USD = 4 Lira. Turkey is on the verge of economic collapse because of erdogans war mongering.

        • Hewal Neutralizer

          You talk about fighting againt kurdish terror and then say stiuation is worsening and then provide Turkish lira’s drop as the evidence. Economy is doing bad right but how is that any relevant to the fight against PKK worsening? Do you even have any idea of the kill rate between PKK and TAF? Those rats are pretty much target practises.

        • Alan Foo

          Not true. Direct non guerrilla war vs Turks, Turks are winning hands down

          • Shawn

            LOL if u say so

    • Alan Foo

      I think they made the worst mistake

  • jim crowland

    The valiant Kurds are no match for the ottomans. Is better to retreat and hand over the territory to Assad (as long as he promises not to gas them as they leave..
