BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:58 A.M.) – Turkish warplanes have unexpectedly struck a government-controlled Shiite-majority town and military checkpoint area in the northern countryside of Aleppo province amid an intensified air campaign over Syrian skies.

According to a statement released by local pro-government activists, Turkish aircraft bombed the town of Nubl an unspecified number of times. Early reports say that at least three civilians were killed in the strikes.

Furthermore, Turkish jets also hit the Al-Harash checkpoint area which serves as a crossing-point between government and Kurdish held areas; eight Syrian pro-government fighter have been killed.

All signs point towards a deliberate bombing of Nubl and Al-Harash checkpoint area the by the Turkish Air Force given the both places locations relatively well away from active combat areas in north Aleppo.

Turkish military authorities have not yet commented on the incident.

You let the the beast (erDOGan) in, he’s ethnically cleansing Afrin and you’ll have a very tough time while trying to push him off. By the way, ask Putin WHY he decided to let the wannabe sultan invade Syria…

Because Putin wants to push YPG/YPJ into a true Federation.
In a Federation the central government has far reaching rights.
Not only obligations.

It is the only way Kurds can participate living inside of the nation state as Syrian citizens not a separate nation in control of the Syrian commons. No mystery here, it is the same in any nation state including the US.

Although the Treasure, Commons and Unalienable Rights of the US citizens are being robbed by the Empire of transnational criminal cabals, just the same modus operandi practiced over seas of death, destruction in the pursuit of pillage and plunder.

Putin has been foolish in allowing Turkey to do what it has done in Syria. He needs to stop playing “Good cop, Bad Cop” with Syria and demand Turkey withdraw.

Putin did it! You idiot! Putin did not come on the scene until Syria was on the ropes from the planning and construction of another never ending war of chaos, death, destruction of pillage and plunder from the usual suspects.

Hope there will be serious consequences like an Afrin no flying zone enforces by Russian SS systems.

To allow US proxy separatist separate all East of the Euphrates River, its Treasure, Commons and Unalienable Rights of Syrian citizens? Not going to happen, the Kurds know the score, disarm, integrate Kurds into the SAA as individual Syrian citizens and turn over all administration to the nation state of Syria. Anything less is sedition and destructive to the Syrian state of all citizens.

The Syrian Alliance has stated “there will be no new Israel in the ME”. Why do you question this when so many have died for this?

En el fondo Erdogan con el pretexto de luchar contra YPG, la verdad quiere acabar con el gobierno Sirio. En este caso Rusia e Irán deben pronunciarse, de lo contrario demostrarán que Erdogan y sus terroristas le faltan el respeto al gobierno Sirio e Irán y eso es decepcionante para el mundo.

Yesterday Afrin, today Nubl, tomorrow Aleppo. Remember that Turkey is and always will be America’s b***h. Just like Saudi Arabia.
