On March 10, the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) and the Free Syrian Army captured the villages of Inab, Kafr Rum, Kurt Qulaq, Al-Tiflah and Huran from the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in the Syrian area of Afrin. With advances made by the TAF and the FSA on March 9, Turkish forces deployed within about 4km northeast of the YPG-held city of Afrin – the main YPG stronghold in the area.

As the frontline between Turkey-led forces and the YPG shortens, the Kurdish group has less and less opportunities to maneuver conducting counter-attacks and avoiding Turkish artillery and air strikes. The YPG’s lack of heavy weapons become more and more crticial. It’s interesting to note that pro-YPG sources also understand this and use this fact in own propaganda. Pro-YPG media outlets and activists claim that the TAF and the FSA can nothing without support from the air. However, these reports cannot deny a progress by Turkey-led forces.

Meanwhile, the FSA released an intersting video showing that a group of women allegedly participating in Ankara’s Operation Olive Branch. The group is allegedly part of the FSA’s “3rd Division”.

On March 10, the TAF’s general staff released a statement claiming that 3,195 “terrorists” had been neutralized since the start of the military opeartion in Afrin on January 20.

Meanwile, YPG-alinged sources claim “numerous” civilain casualties as a result of the Turkish military operation. Different sources provide different numbers. However, they are more or less agree that about 200 people have been killed and about 500 others have been injured since the start of the fighting.

Turkish warpanes carry out airstrikes on targets in the vicinity of the city of Afrin:

      This is another situation. At Moscow Hitler pissed everything. he stopped the attack and removed units.
      From that time ruskies love this tactics. Therefore use it as much as possible also in Syria.

      • Malek

        Agreed. Syria is not ours. But Turkey have to intervene as no other means of helping the brothers overthere. It is even worst due to the PKK issue.

        • MichaH

          May turkey have legitimate reasons to attack, but they did no good for 6 years to stop the killing in syria when they supported a various of terrorists groups and still support today….

          • Malek

            Yes. But the last 6 years efforts see no solution to the problem. May be they need to I interfere this time around. Tell me what they have not done before. I keep monitoring all the efforts. I just cant see the solution.

    Not only YPG-aligned sources claim the death of civilians.

    • Hulusi Akar

      Not Turkeys problem if ypg uses human shields. They withdraw and enter afrin with civilians. Not only that they dont let civilians escape. And ypg fighters are dressed up as civilians when they die they make propaganda. If any genuine civilians die thats on ypg terorrists and not Turkey.

      • Samuel Boas

        Yes it is on your hand. Turkey invaded Syria illegally. Stay the fuck home.

        • Hulusi Akar

          If there was no pkk in Afrin, Turkey would never invade it. PKK infiltrated through Afrin to do suicide bombs in Turkey. Also they continuously threatened Turkey’s national integrity and security. But don’t worry, Afrin isnt the only target. Where ever PKK has presence Turkey will make sure they will destroy it.

        • Mike

          turkey is allowed in by russia the inofficial owner of syria! Turkey is legally there!

          • Samuel Boas

            Wrong, Russia and Syria both oppose the illegal operation of Turkey. Just because you do not like Syrian or Russian government does not mean anything.

          • Mike

            Lol wrong again loser, russia even reprogrammed the S400 IFF to detect turkish jets as friendly idiot

          • Samuel Boas

            I just explained why the Turkish invasion is illegal. You can say the Russians don’t attack the Turks but that does not mean they approve of their operation, and even if they did it would not matter, because only the Syrian government can approve of such an operation. Do you even know how international law works?

          • Hulusi Akar

            Turkeys invasion is not illegal, Turkey is acting according the Article 51 – The Right to Self-Defence. If you object it you can go to the UN and try to sanction Turkey.

          • Mike

            The syrian government can aprove nothing, since they made 2/3 of their own people homeless and massacred 600k. So in your opinion Hitler was end of 1945 still sovereign, despite all people wanting to see him dead. In your opinion the allies should have asked Hitler if he wanted to be invaded. The “syrian government” is as self proclaimed 1 man government, jusg speak it out load: dictator. And he doesnt have his people behind only the brainwashed ones in damascus. He was the reason why this revolution started in the first place. Because people wanted him to go.

            Oh stop it with blaming the goverment for a foreign sponsored war. Thats pure BS, this is a US EU GCC Israel mess. The people do not want him to go thats another lie, the west wants him gone not the people. Who the fuck would want a wahabbi goverment. Syria was a. Example of how different peoples could live together in harmony, but sadly it was poisened by the west, our corrupt goverments.

          • Mike

            And russia approves turkish intervention, because they have a deal against speratist terrorists

          • talat güneyli

            Internation law says you have the right to defend your borders if you have attacked. And Turkey has been attacked so many times from Irak and from Syria.
            PKK is a terrorist group for Turkey and for USA And for EU. The links with the PKK and syrian Kurds are cristal clear.Changing names wont fool anyone.Read the article 51 and see if its legal or not.

        • talat güneyli

          Who invaded Syria legally? USA ? So USA can come over all the way from America to Afganistan to Irak to syria and stay there as long as it likes but when Turkey makes a move to defend its borders it is an invation is that so ? get your head out of the sand !

      • Estorilista (Sargakekek)

        Hah! You think if Turkey is bombing villager’s houses, and massacres civilians, it’s the YPG’s problem?

        • talat güneyli

          Turkey has been a home for 4,5 million refugees while the rest of the world closed their gates for them Turkey accepted them . Turkey is being very careful about civilians thats why the operation took so long. so no one is bombing villagers houses !

          • Estorilista (Sargakekek)

            They ARE bombing villager’s houses, and why are the most of the Kurdish civilian flee to government-controlled areas?

    • Mike

      Amnesty report of 2 days ago says: 93 dead 400+ wounded. I rather trust there numbers, not YPG propaganda or SOHR bias london guy, who re-reports YPG reports. So for it is the war in syria with the fewest civilian cassualties, not like the US which afmited they killed 6000-7000 people in syria last year

      • Estorilista (Sargakekek)

        Well, I more trust in SOHR, because it’s based on local activists.

      • John Rawanduzy

        Mike you are brain washed by your isis supporter erdogay,
        We as a Kurd won’t ever give up
        Efrin will be graveyard for these isis supporter so called fsa and turcroches

        • talat güneyli

          Efrin bacame a grave for you , you just dont seem to realise it yet lol.

    • Mike

      This is the UN report about YPG using human shields and preventing them from fleeing:
      http://i66.tinypic.com/2hxp0u9.png
      http://www.un.org/press/en/2018/db180305.doc.htm
      And I think we can agree that we all saw that video how YPG terrorists tried to block civilians from fleeing by planting IEDs on the mainroad of Jinderes
      https://youtube.com/watch?t=17s&v=W6lX0mUtUns

      • World_Eye

        Yes all this is ok we saw that they are planting the bomb but really if Turkey is so concerned about this situation that someone might indeed get killed on that bobytraped road, let me ask you something: If the Turkey really wanted to save some of the villagers and make it save for them, they had so much time to bomb the road that was covered with explosive, they can instantly deliver explosive to the YPG that planted that there, why they also didn’t destroy the bomb on the street so no one can get hurt of the civilians, but instead they were watching with the drone what will happen and who will die, so later they can have some story to make on the ground. Tell me that why didn’t they helped them?

        • Mike

          The bayraktar TB2 carries only 2 MAM-L/C bombs they probably used one before and had no second. these UAVs are in the sky 24h, so they may killed another group with the second bomb before this incident. also there were 2 bombs these terrorists planted the second exploded after the car stopped.

          • World_Eye

            I don’t know what to think anymore it is a fucking chaos down there, or more efficient bomb them right on spot where are placing the IED, at least that’s what the US did on the talibans in Afghanistan, spotted adding IED bomb on spot, 2 birds with 1 stone, you kill them and destroy the explosive on the road.

          • Mike

            sorry I was mistaken. watch the video of Anadolu Agency again the UAV didnt bomb at all. it had no boms anymore. at second 40 or so it says they called in Turkish airforce. the drone just followed them until the airforce came and marked their position with lazer. they could prevent it.

          • Estorilista (Sargakekek)

            No, no, it was the same drone.

          • GSi2018

            Damn what a fantasy you have

      • Estorilista (Sargakekek)

        “Jandaris, a town in northern Syria, there was a major massacre today by an aerial air strike.” The same UN source.

      • Estorilista (Sargakekek)

        Actually, if this drone footage is true, then it’s a shame, but I have some problems with it. First, as the map shows, both vilages were under the control of YPG by the time. Second, how do the y know, that the people who are oplanting the IEDs, are YPG soldiers? Third, if they are, why doesn’t the drone interrupt? Fourth, it’s an Anadolu Agency video, which is a well-known Turkish state media, and reports anything against the YPG, even if it’s might fake.

      • John Rawanduzy

        These brave Kurdish freedom fighter
        Soon will free entire Middle East and entire
        Occupied Mesopotamia’s from these turkroches mongguls

            So Turks epxpect kurds just don’t fight
            Let these isis and nusra crouches kill
            Them and rape their women ,
            Here in America every single person
            Like the bravery of these Kurdish women
            And like Kurds , turkey has no regards for human bing
            Kurds defended humanity
            Don’t go to far just look at Turkish history for the past 100 years and Kurdish history

  • Mike

    “The YPG’s lack of heavy weapons become more and more crticial…” is that a joke or what? YPG terrorists showed in their own propaganda clips that thry have MRLS, artillery, mortars, AA-weapins, jevelins, ATGMs, tanks and BMPs. A tank was captured recently by FSA and a YPG BMP got destroyed by turkish special forces with an ATGM. What else do they need? Fot me it seems like a pathetic excuse for their failure and massive losses. There currently 10000-12000 YPG terrorists, other sources say 12000-15000 (after YPGs claim of 5000 reinforcements in Feb 6.) and now they even halted the “fight” against ISIS despite their 60k troops (YPG says 100k) and they are still losing. They promissed in their over confidence a vietnam for turkey, but in reality afrin turned into a slaughterhouse for these donkeys. Now they are crying for help its pathetic!
    “Pro-YPG media outlets and activists claim that the TAF and the FSA can nothing without support from the air. ”
    its funny to hear such thing from YPG terrorists who cant do anything without US bombing the living shit out of a city. Raqqa was to 90% destroyed and YPG terrorists still couldnt capture it and had to make a deal with ISIS, for the 5th time. YPG cant capture any city without USAF. YPG just walks in after US deatroyed and killed/driven out the whole population. Besides ISIS also didnt have any Air support, they had half as much soldiers as YPG terrorists and still rekt whole syria including the SAA. Only russia saved Assad.
    So laughable YPG ratz keep your excuses for yourself! No one wants to hear you bitches cry! You prepared 6 years for this turkish attack. You digged 10s of km of tunnels and build fortifications and said “turkey shall come if they wish, we are prepared, afrin will be a vietnam for them”. Now we see for whom it is a vietnam LMAO

    • Sputnik Stranger

      “YPG terrorists showed in their own propaganda clips that they have MRLS, artillery, mortars, AA-weapins, jevelins, ATGMs, tanks and BMPs.”

      How many of those do they have? Also, how many MANPADSs do they have? Even though MANPADSs are not particulary effective against F-16s which Turkish Armed Forces have but they could be effective against attacking helicopters. I haven’t seen one video or even heard about one case of SDF using a man-portable air defense system against one of many Turkish helicopters operating in Afrin Canton.

      “There are currently 10000-12000 YPG terrorists, other sources say 12000-15000 (after YPGs claim of 5000 reinforcements in Feb 6.)”

      https://twitter.com/Syria_Rebel_Obs/status/972455949855227909

      Show me that YPG claim of 5000 reinforcements.

      “now they even halted the “fight” against ISIS despite their 60k troops (YPG says 100k)”

      As far as i know, YPG never claimed to have 100,000 fighters.

      “Now they are crying for help, its pathetic!” “No one wants to hear you bitches cry!”

      There are hundreds of thousands of civilians in Afrin Canton you degenerate.

      Who are not being forced to stay in Afrin Canton by YPG btw:

      • Mike

        The MANPADs and ATGMs were supplied in massive quantities by iran and the SAA. there is no doubt about that. there are dozens of videos online showing YPG terrorists holding MANPADs. the reason why they couldnt shot any helis down is that the ones in the turkish inventory have advanced counter meassures. only one time a heli crashed due to malfunction. still it isnt impossible these terrorists are just to retarded.
        and you can fool anyone with this number, this is nothing official without any proof. its a wild guess and reads like pure PG propaganda: civilians took up arms. you can already tell its pure BS. YPG had fortifications along the huge turkish syrian border and dozens of camps. what do you think who manned these outposts? rabbits?
        YPG reinforced their troops in Feb 6. (according to their own propaganda statement it was made up of 5000 fighters. South front itself estimated 2000)
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfqtzjTz42g
        there are numerous sources on twitter that also claim YPG numbers way beyond the 10000 mark. even the well informed turkish intelligence service stated there were between 8000-10000. this statement of MIT was before the reinforcements of 800 fighters from aleppo and their claimed 5000 from east euphrates areas. now they are snding another 1700 and even thinking about a second frontline. US stated a couple of days ago that the “fight” against ISIS came to a complete hold and YPG is only focusing on afrin (which is desputable). My post comes btw directly from the UN! there is no more credible source! so your posts have 0 authenticity and are probably again pure YPG terrorist propaganda! our UAV footage shows clearly that YPG is planting bomb against civilians, which pretty much approves the UN statement visually. The truth is YPG thought they are so much prepared against a turkish attack (despite PKK having years of experience about our attack) that they provocated turkey to take action: “turkey shall come if they wish, we are prepared, afrin will be a vietnam for them”. you cant deny this facts as much as you wish.
        And the airforce point isnt valid. ISIS also survived russian airstrikes and even pushed on and took palmyra couple of times from the russians. YPG terrorists had 6 years to prepare themselfes and they did, they were even far to confident in their preparations. they digged 10s of km tunnels, build hundreds of fortifications and bunkers against airstrikes even under their cities and still got destroyed. Besides turkey could also be whiny and bitch about that they cant defend against ATGM strikes that they are a conventional army and ATGM attacks are hard to aviod and YPG should use such tactics. But they dont. they arent pussies. And they dontt search excuses for losses (though they are pretty low). But if YPG wishes we can go backk to face to face sword combat, but this was also a field we dominated.

          “The MANPADs and ATGMs were supplied in massive quantities by iran and the SAA. there is no doubt about that.”

          Source?

          “there are dozens of videos online showing YPG terrorists holding MANPADs.”

          Show me one.

          “YPG reinforced their troops in Feb 6. (according to their own propaganda statement it was made up of 5000 fighters.”

          Show me that statement.

          “the well informed turkish intelligence service stated”

          Why would i trust anything coming from Turkish intelligence service (MIT) or Turkish state which has a documented history of cooperation with organized crime (Susurluk scandal)?

          “this statement of MIT was before the reinforcements of 800 fighters from aleppo and their claimed 5000 from east euphrates areas.”

          Again, show me where THEY claimed the number of 5000. Post the link.

          “now they are snding another 1700 and even thinking about a second frontline.”

          They should definitely open a second front by attacking the points of Turkish invaders and their proxies with full force in the areas west and north of Manbij. I don’t know what are they waiting for. The best defense is a good offense.

          “My post comes btw directly from the UN! there is no more credible source! so your posts have 0 authenticity and are probably again pure YPG terrorist propaganda!”

          Chairperson of Afrin Canton administration: ‘We cordially invite you to come to Afrin and speak with the people. The ceasefire is paper-based and there is nobody monitoring compliance with the UN resolution. Instead, the UN official claims that self-administration and the YPG prevent the population from escaping. We invite those who sit somewhere and say something like this to send a delegation to Afrin and talk to people here. The people of Afrin prefer to voluntarily stay in their country and defend it against the occupation of the Turkish state. Please, come here, see for yourself!’ https://anfenglishmobile.com/rojava/hevi-mistefa-invites-un-to-afrin-come-and-see-for-yourself-25384

          “But if YPG wishes we can go backk to face to face sword combat, but this was also a field we dominated.”

          Turkish soldiers are nothing without the advanced military technology. If they, for example, had the exact same military equipment PKK guerrillas have at their disposal, they would be swimming to Greek islands.

    Racist supremacist Jews are laughing at what they would say are the “stupid lower then animals beast Goyim kurds” for the stupid Kurds to believe that their racist supremacist Jewish slave masters, would risk one fingernail of their chosen master superior race to be broken, even if it meant it would save all the kurds on the planet .
    Unless the Kurds totally surrender to the SAA and beg their fellow Syrians and Assad to forgive them and they then join the SAA in kicking the USSA slave soldiers of racist Israel out of all of Syria, they will be totally destroyed as their Jewish slave masters laugh at them.

      The best thing the Ottomans ever did was end the First Saudi State by throwing the decapitated head of Abdullah bin Saud into the Bosphorus.

    Why is Turky doing this to them selfs? Was it not enough of killings. This is not thay way of Ataturk. Why is answer primitive war. Why they can not sit together and discuss the things and issues like normal people without bombing, killings. Human stupidity is beyond common sense.

      Sweet little Hornet. Wake up my friend.

      • Hornet

        Wake up to what. I know from first hand what is war. I have been in one. Nothing good was done by this war. Very bloody. Belive me, Erdogan can not kill all Kurds and Kurds can not kill all Turks. So what is the point of war. Tell me did any war have made any good? Only suffering of innocent people. After 10 years Kurds and Turks still will be there hate each other. This all is just stupid.

        • Malek

          Agreed. But who is behind the Kurds? I will never trust Israelis regime. They are pitting among the Muslims.

          • Hornet

            Behind the Kurds? Point is that you have cca. 35-40 millions of Kurds all together. This is huge number of people with great history, own culture and specifics. They deserve to have some sort of autonomy and rights like every other nation in the World. If Turky could live with that I think that will solve lots of problems there. Kiilings and shellings is not the answer. Never was, never will be.

          • Malek

            Yes. I pity the Kurds but this is something very complicated to solve. But if all small ethnics want to have their own states. They will be very weak and cant even afford to protect and compete in the big world. Muslims should combine and become one state actually.

          • Hornet

            Where is a will there is a way,
            war is not the answer. Live and let to live. You have lots of small nation having their own states, why? Because neighbouring countries realized that with war you can not achive nothing. But if you have a evil predator as a neighbour than this neghbour it will start use all means of force to subdue other nations and impose them his own will and interests. Muslim is only religion but not etnicity. Evan muslims hate other muslims calling them “Kufur” like Suni and Shia..As you said, it is complicated. Evil is running the Show.

          • Malek

            So what is the solution here for the Kurds? The US and the Jews keep arming them. If they are so powerful and sincere, why not using it to resolve the figthing? Force the Kurds and Turkey to resolve the problem. No need the war.

          • Hornet

            My opinion is to have international conference about Kurds. Have together Turky, Iraq, Iran and Syria and start to talk with Kurds about their autonomy within this countries. Give them right for their schools, language, even police. Right to go on sports competitions with their on flag and flag of country they live in.I am not expert, I am from Balkans but there is saying “Better for 1000 days to talk than to wage war for a day.” There are more smarter people in the World to give better solutions. First step is hard one. To stop killings and to talk. All the best to you.

          • Malek

            Yup. Your suggestion sounds good. But until today no one could able to do this after years of war and thousands have died.

          • talat güneyli

            As a Turk i can surely say Turkey is not fighting to defend islam but her own borders. And buying drones from israel is very old news my friend that was like 5-6 years ago Turkey is now producing all kinds of drones (with peapons and without weapons) itself and even exporting them.
