BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:12 A.M.) – Following an official statement by Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s spokesperson saying that Ankara is willing to cooperate with Washington in Syria to create a shared security zone around the city of Manbij (currently held by US-backed forces), additional commentary was made regarding Turkey’s intentions for Afrin.

According to Ibrahim Kalin, President Erdogan’s spokesperson, Turkey has no intention to hand over the city of Afrin to the Syrian government once it is captured from Kurdish fighters.

At the present time, the Turkish Army and allied proxy militias are on the verge of seizing the small northwest Syrian city from Kurdish paras. It is expect to fall within the next couple of days, if not sooner.

Updates to follow.

“At the present time, the Turkish Army and allied proxy militias are on the verge of seizing the small northwest Syrian city from Kurdish paras” ???

You mean they’re on the verge of invading Afrin to commit ethnic cleansing of its people. By “Kurdish paras” you actually mean the civilian population.

And guess who were the allies of the Ottoman Empire in the past ?

=The United Kingdom and the Kingdom of France, the nations of traitors, betraying their fellows catholics and christians for Islam and the muslims.

And now they are still the allies of these Mongols in addition with the US

Meaning all of Turdey is a legal target now under international law as an officially self-declared invading force. The gloves should be off.

Your “logic” keeps amusing me! Izrael is USA/UK/Saudi ally, every move Kurds do to split from Syria and Iraq is immediatelly greeted by Izrael.
I personally sympathised Kurds for their very non-muslim attitude to their women. It is VERY unfortunate they let their leaders to betray their real interests and become just another zionist tool to destroy Syria and neighbouring countries – Iraq and Iran.

Relax. I understand your utter frustration, you have an excuse: anybody in your place (i.e. under zionist rule) would get the very same butthurt.
Even more butthurt comes (for you) from knowing that Saudi Arabia is now an open ally of Izrael and USA.

Without USA weapons (and even having them!) Saudi Arabia gets blows from Houthi beduins in Yemen armed with bare AK-47s!
Your problems are because of religion fanatism. Your’s and Izrael’s.

Din’t I tell you to relax?
Just relax and exhale. That will ease your butthurt a bit.
Saudi king is a zionist puppet, those haliphate thugs – are zionist creatures on USA/UK payroll. These proven facts of life – and you have to live with that. My sincere consolations to you.
Your hatred harms you.
Stop being like that.
