A large convoy of Turkish Army reinforcements arrived to the border-city of Kilis on Monday morning after the recent increase in violence split over from the Syrian province of Aleppo.

This increase in fighting between the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) has prompted the Turkish Army to expand their presence along the Syrian-Turkish border to ensure the safety of civilians living in Kilis and its surrounding area.

However, many observers in northern Aleppo believe that the Turkish Army is actually waiting for the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) to attack the Syrian border-city of Jarabulus.

If the YPG and their allies from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) make a push to Jarabulus; this will without a doubt result in an attack by the Turkish Army, despite the fact the Kurdish forces are fighting Islamic State of terrorists.

    • If they enter Syria, YES. If they bomb it still in Turkey : WW3 : Turkey is a NATO country, all NATO will have to react and Muslim Brotherhood will be very happy to see E.U., the US and Russia nuke each other… I bet they’d sacrifice a turkey without problem for such a result… Then, after, they’ll go conqueer the whole world…
      Put f***in’ Erdogan’s Turkey out of NATO, it’s a trojan horse!

  1. US is stiring the pot of Kurdish ambitions to create a puppet state right in the heart of the ME at the expense of neighboring countries just as they did with the Zionist entity. Turkey is not going to let it happen and Syria Iraq and Iran must not also.

    • I think things are much more complicated in the west than you seem to think!
      Turkey is very badly seen in E.U. nowadays…Erdogan’s links with Muslim Brotherhood are publicaly exposed, his son’s oil business with ISIS too, same thing about all the salafists which transited to Turkey or the turkish blackmail about refugees…
      Only threats about Turkey taken out of NATO could simply decide militaries to topple Erdogan as they wouldn’t like Putin’s retaliation for the Su-24. If Turkey wasn’t NATO, they’d have faced very big problems (although, IMHO, they’d never dared to down a russian plane). Turkey is likely to have to pay for this and for having tricked the west with the help of its MB, saudis and qataris friends… Bits of Turkey may fall to kurds as a punishment.
      Another point : if Assad wants to get rid from islamist scum, securing the turkish border by a kurdish buffer zone would be a very good move, BTW, if kurds didn’t attacked Raqqa, it’s because it isn’t a kurdish town. Same thing about Mossul! Kurdish help may have a price and another point is Syrian and Iraqi Rojava are geographically linked and Rojava is already de facto a state, kurds have already warned that there’s no way the iraqi army will re-install in Erbil or Kirkuk and once terrorist crushed in Syria and Iraq, I doubt people will want another war to conqueer areas with a large majority of kurds that will ALL fight to the death to keep it…
      And I don’t think the YPG or PKK would be puppets : these ppl would say that commies are right wing persons! They’re very into Oçalan ideas, this is very anarchist-like ideology, you know, so they won’t be tricked by the US!
