Turkish army soldiers stand guard as Kurdish people wait in a hope to enter Cizre, a town subject to a curfew as part of a controversial operation against Kurdish rebels, on March 22, 2016 in Mardin, for Newroz celebration. Nowruz, the Farsi-language word for 'New Year', is an ancient Persian festival, celebrated on the first day of spring, March 21, in Central Asian republics, Iraq, Turkey, Afghanistan and Iran.

BEIRUT, LÍBANO (8:30 p. M.) – Las Fuerzas Armadas turcas continuaron presionando en el norte de Siria el sábado, confiscando varios sitios de las Fuerzas Democráticas Sirias (SDF) lideradas por los kurdos.

Según un informe del sábado, las Fuerzas Armadas turcas pudieron cortar la carretera Hasakah-Aleppo después de capturar al menos 18 aldeas de las fuerzas democráticas sirias en los campos de Tal Abyad y Ras Al-‘Ayn.

Como resultado de estos avances, las Fuerzas Armadas turcas no solo pudieron cortar la carretera Hasakah-Aleppo, sino que también cortaron la carretera Hasakah-Manbij, la carretera Qamishli-Hasakah y la carretera Tal Abyad-‘Ayn ‘Issa.

Las Fuerzas Armadas turcas y sus aliados militantes ahora están trabajando para rodear completamente las Fuerzas Democráticas Sirias y las Unidades de Protección del Pueblo (YPG) a lo largo de la vasta región fronteriza.

Las fuerzas SDF e YPG probablemente se retirarán de estas áreas antes de que estén completamente rodeadas, pero, en este momento, están tratando de resistir el mayor tiempo posible.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
