Turkish army begins shelling positions of Kurds in Syria

Recently we Reportedas US President Donald Trump erupted with loud statements addressed to Turkey. And so, the Sham FM radio station, Al-Hadas TV company and other sources report that Turkish army artillery opened fire on the positions of the Washington-controlled Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the north -tailed Syria, in the province of Raqqa.




As specified, the Turks are shelling from SDF positions east of the city of Tell Tell El Abyad, located right on the border with Turkey, on the right tributary of the Belikh River. By the way, this city is connected by a convenient road to the Turkish city of Akcakale.

In addition, the Turkish Air Force launched bombing raids on the Syrian-Iraqi border near the border crossing in Samalik. So the Turks are trying to prevent the transfer of reinforcements for the SDF from Iraq to Syria.

Before that, on October 7, 2019, the Turkish Air Force attacked the SDF headquarters in the city of Al-Malikiya in the north-eastern Syrian province of Hasek. At the same time, the United States began to withdraw its units from the Syrian-Turkish border.

The illegibility of the Kurds in choosing friends, of course, is surprising. But the east is a delicate matter. Therefore, it is possible that the S-400, purchased by Ankara from Moscow, will help squeeze the United States out of northeast Syria and enlighten the Kurds left without air cover.

    But the Kurds are a very good tool for influencing Turkey, Iran, Iraq, and, of course, Syria, and lose such a trump card ?? I do not understand the generosity of amers.

      His (trump card), probably, just again put into the deck, until the next shuffle. And the fact that the Turks will stick out from the deck will be cut slightly.

    If it turns out in such a way to drive the United States out of Syria, and then transfer the territory under the control of Syria, then Putin is not in vain friends with Erdogan.

    Personally, I have already written more than once that "Vostok is a case" is not subtle, but mean ...
    So at the moment, just ordinary eastern meanness is working ...
    - And the United States just once again checks "Turkey for lice" ...
    - Actually, the USA is again killing two (or maybe more) rabbits ...:
    1. They show the Kurds that no one needs them and ... that if they do not do everything further on American orders, then Turkey will always be "let go" on them (which is now happening) ...
    2. And Turkey was again indicated its place and again given to understand that, as Turkey had an eternal problem with its Kurds (and with foreign Kurds) ... - so it remained ... - these are "Erdogans" come and go, and the Kurdish problem remains ...
    - But in general, the same cheap and mediocre performance continues, in which the characters do not change ...
    - And in this fake eastern fake disgusting theater troupe, only one Russia plays openly and takes everything seriously ... -Although Russia still has to pay for this whole foreign performance ...
    - It's the United States that they pretend to participate all the way .., but in fact they play actors engaged by them ... -What is happening now ...
    - As for Turkey, she can easily play any role ... - even male, even female ... - But her roles are always defined ... and are always directed exclusively against their Russian "naive friends", partners and creditors ... - That is, Turkey can easily stab you in the back with a knife (such a terrible reality); or maybe slowly add poison ... - and all this is intended for all the same Russian friends and partners ...
    For this, the United States fostered Turkey and it fulfills its mission ... - Alas ...
    - It is not clear only ... - why Russia so wastefully and recklessly got involved in this "Turkish friendship" ... with its mortal and age-old enemy ... - Alas ...
