BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:55 P.M.) – A massive Turkish Army convoy was pictured entering Idlib Governorate from the Hatay Province, yesterday, marking the second time this month that Ankara has sent forces to Syria.

According to Syrian opposition media outlets, the Turkish Army convoy established a 3rd ‘observation’ point in the Al-Aqil Mountains near the ‘Anadan Plain of west Aleppo.

The Turkish Army has now positioned themselves at two separate areas near the Kurdish PYD-controlled Afrin Canton in northwestern Aleppo.

Recently, the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan hinted that his army was preparing for a large-scale operation against the predominately Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), adding that Turkey will not allow any terrorist forces on their border.

Quick Kurds/SDF. Make up your mind whether you want to be part of a united federal Syria or you are on your own. The Syrian Government also doesn’t want the Turks in their country. The latter tends to stay, see Cyprus. My advice is to do a deal with Assad. You’re going to need pressure off your Deir Ezzor and Raqqa fronts while you tackle the Turks and the FSA,etc. You are going to need supplies and a bit of air cover. The USA is not going to bomb the Turks, a NATO ally (at the moment), for you.

It is quite possible Erdogan might order the troops to engage the Kurds. Assuming a war breaks out between Turkey and the Kurdish Militant… Read more »
