President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan promised that Turkey will “lay siege to Afrin city in the coming days”, during an address to the Turkish parliament in Ankara on Tuesday.

“The preparations on the ground take time. In the coming days, we will lay siege to Afrin city,” he said.

On Monday, Syria’s state-run Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) announced that “popular forces [the Syrian military] are to arrive in the Afrin area soon to support locals in facing the aggression launched by the Turkish regime on the area since January 20th.”

Despite international outrage, Turkey has continued with ‘Olive Branch’ operations and plans for extended operations in Idlib province.

Turkey views the YPG, which is active in northern Syria, as an extension of the banned militant group the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

Erdogan intends to continue his mission of conquering Northern Syria.

p.s. Jihadi hail him as new Sultan on Youtube. Things like: Turkey will win insh’allah from Kuwait. Hope the caliphate will be back by turkey.

Yeah, it’s high times leaders come to their senses, we need to team EU and Russia in order to build up a serious coalition.
September 11th 1683 v.2.0 is needed, no way we shall let this jackal fulfil his grim agenda.

Erdogan’s Turkish irredentism claims traumatized by the Treaty of Lausanne. Guess Erdogan bargains for a Treaty of Sèvres v.2.0 without knowing it.

He forgot the lesson of how the Turkish world power of old fared against the forces of an united Europe after 1682.
And this time there will be no French back stabbing like 1683–1699.

Tongue out.
