ALEPPO, SYRIA (12:45 P.M.) – The Kurdish-led “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF) carried out a successful ambush against a group of Turkish Army soldiers and Islamist rebels near the key town of Mar’e in northern Aleppo.

According to the pro-rebel “Syrian Observatory for Human Rights” (SOHR), the surprise attack was carried out at the Twihineh area of northern Aleppo, near the Shahba Dam.

The SOHR also added that many Turkish soldiers and rebels were killed seized as a result of this abrupt attack in northern Aleppo on Saturday night.

In response to the SDF’s aggression, the Turkish Army resumed their shelling campaign, targeting Kurdish populated villages and towns near the border.

Best defence, according to Julius Caesar, is attack… Nevertheless, SDF needs air power to go and get the Turkish Firtina howitzers : with their 40 km range, they’re too far behind enemy lines to be blown easily. Some SS missiles with more serious range than ATGMs with reliable intel can do it too but the Firtinas shall be taken out ASAP ; they are as dangerous as air-raids by THK. Means to disrupt the command systems of the drones the invaders use for reece purposes shall be made available too. Russians should consider using an EMP bomb to fry all… Read more »

NATO and especially US already told him to not get implied but he’s really a loonie. Turkey has become a problem for, well, everybody, in fact, the problem is mostly Erdogan Erdogan totally erratic behaviour and the fact AKP is nothing else than the display window of the infamous MB, a terrorist organisation. I know a lot about armament in general. IMHO, the best thing to do would using EMP (electro magnetic pulse) to f**k up all the electronic devices used in “Euphrate Shield”, it’d give great momentum to SDF while not being a direct attack by the Russians or… Read more »

Hehe, being manipulative is one of the symptoms of narcissistic behaviour disorder syndrome… The sickness all dictators have… Frankly, although it’s nasty, the best thing to do would simply be getting rid of him once and for good or face even greater problems.
