BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:50 P.M.) – The Turkish Army has deployed to the Ras Al-‘Ayn border-crossing in northern Syria, activists in the Al-Hasakah Governorate reported this evening.

According to reports from Al-Hasakah, the Turkish Army crowded the border-crossing at Ras Al-‘Ayn and began shelling this part of the province.

The Turkish Army has also shelled the densely populated city of Al-Qamishli on several occasions today.

It is not clear whether or not the Turkish military is planning on launching a ground assault in Ras Al-‘Ayn; however, there are a large number of U.S. troops in the area.

The Kurds have a really easy solution — invite the SAA in, turn US supplied weapons over to Syria and/or place YPG units under Syrian command, submit to Syrian administration and request the US leave. It’s really a no-brainer, but it does require a spine. Unfortunately, their leaders are paid to be spineless slaves of FUKZUS.
