DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8:35 P.M.) – The Turkish Armed Forces are paying the price for recent air raids in northern Syria as their troops came under heavy fire by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) along the entire border on Wednesday.

With the most heavy clashes erupting in the area between Derbassiye and Senyurt, SDF units fired a number of anti-tank missiles upon Turkish border guards, reportedly destroying two tanks in cross-border attacks.

Meanwhile on the Efrin axis, an additional 2 tanks were destroyed and 1 Turkish technical destroyed. In total, 5 Turkish soldiers are said to have been killed with 6 wounded.

On the other hand, a newly released Turkish military statement said 8 SDF fighters had been neutralized and two more wounded on Wednesday. Furthermore, 4 SDF technicals were immobilized, mostly due to airstrikes.

The escalation comes after the Turkish Air Force killed dozens of Kurdish militants in northern Syria and Iraq yesterday.

Now, Washington is expected to mediate between the warring parties, both of whom are considered close allies of the United States.

The events with Turkey, the Kurds and the US have all the hallmarks of a drunken brawl. It will not end well for any of them 🙂

There were already some discussions held at NATO HQs to put Turkey out of the alliance when they shot down the Russian Su-24 and due to numerous Erdolf’s provocations : it was simply considered he was trying to launch WW3. On the other hand, NATO doesn’t want to lose Incirlik etc, nevertheless, I don’t think Turkey is seen as a reliable ally under any auspice.

The main reason the US is supplying the SDF is to fracture Syria in order to build pipelines from the Gulf States to Europe that would also need to transit Turkey. The SDF are mere cannon fodder in a battle for US /Israeli hegemony over oil and gas supplies to Europe.

Millions of Arab deaths on all sides are a mere ‘ hiccup’ for the US whose corporations survive on the blood of others.

All this you are fully aware of I am sure.

That doesn’t explain at all the Russian’s support.

also, what really is wrong with building pipelines in general. all they do is transport petroleum from one place to another. the SAA have their own.

The CIA fueled the fires in Chechnya in the 90’s. The US wants to plunder Russia and started to do so in the 90’s. President Putin put a stop to that. Russia not aggressive BUT is also the No 1 country that can totally destroy the US and as we see in Korea, the US will not tolerate nations that can fight back and hit the US mainland. The US is decaying fast, economically and culturally, as most Empires have done in the past. Such Empires can only survive via the continual plunder and de facto slavery of other nations… Read more »

Under Obama, it was. Under Obama, the jobs that were lost in the great recession were medium-salary careers that were replaced by low wage jobs. the SJWs in US colleges are no longer being supported. people have woken up to the fact that they’re anarcho-communists who would rather silence critics rather than have a dialogue. They like to call people bigots and whatever just to cover up their own racism. They believe that people of minorities are incapable of asking for equality and equity. they’re virtue signaling (I trust that by now, you notice that I have a lot to… Read more »

Why are you spreading Turdish propaganda? It is not the SDF who “attacked” the border to Erdogistan. Instead, all Syrian territories in the North, which are currently solely defended by the SDF, came under sustained Turdish attacks. The tanks were actually destroyed while crossing INTO Syria.
