BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – Over 6,500 Turkish-backed rebels from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) have been mobilized for the upcoming offensive against the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) in the eastern region of the Euphrates River Valley, the Ankara state-owned Anadolu Agency reported.

According to the Anadolu report, over 6,500 members of the Free Syrian Army’s Al-Hamza Regiment are prepared to launch their new operation.

The Al-Hamza Regiment is one of the largest units of the Free Syrian Army; they played a key role in the previous Afrin offensive .

While Turkey has not revealed their next target in Syria, it is expected that their allied rebel forces will attack the predominately Kurdish city of Kobane in northern Aleppo.

Kobane was nearly besieged by the Islamic State (ISIS) in late 2014 and early 2015; however, the YPG was able to score a major victory against the terrorist group and force them to fall back across the Aleppo province.

Since Yanks have installed the same radars KSA uses to intercept Houthi ballistic missiles, you can assume there are Patriot SAMs around : these have no other purpose than target acquisition par PAC-3/PAAC-4 😉

Means the Yanks will protect Turkey if any missiles are fired to intercept Turkish planes attacking Kurds?

Perfidious.
