A reporter for Turkey state-run media outlet, Anodolu Agency, has said that Turkmen from Iraq are moving to Syria.

His tweet has claimed that some Sunni Turkmen from ISIS-controlled Tel Afar, a Turkmen majority city near Mosul in Iraq, have been resettled in Jarablus in Syria.

The Turkmen are ethnic kin of Turks.

Jarablus straddles the Syria-Turkey border and in recent months was the launching point of Turkey’s incursion and intervention in Syria where it is currently battling ISIS and Kurdish forces.

Jarablus is a mixed Turkmen and Arab town, but if the reports prove true, it would demonstrate Turkey engaging in demographic changes and Erdogan continuing his Neo-Ottoman policy with a potential annexation of the town.

The resettling would be without any approval or coordination from Damascus.

My country also has a lot of erdogan puppets, where can we send them to ?
We can put them on a bus or on a airplane.
The costs will be paid, a lot of people here will gladly donate to resettle them.

Propose an exchange to Erdogan : if he sends refugees, you’ll send Turks… And let’s see his face when 3M Turks come home : he won’t be able to repel them : they have Turkish nationality… Ouuuchhh!
Now, my Doner-Kebab guy can be left here (I’m near your border) : he’s totally anti-Erdogan, LOL

Safe zone can be achieved only with seminizing loyal people to you, in this case Turk + Turk.

Invading Syria, toppling Assad then progressively assassinate all FSA/Nusra/etc leaders to place Gollum’s puppets and recreate the Ottoman empire. Invading Iraq is also HIGHLY considered. Also destroying the Kurds… Just consider the number of tanks he packed on borders, if it’s not preparing a massive invasion, tell me how do you call it? But, considering the purges in his army and the fact he managed to p**s off everybody -and in his place, I’d be very dubious about the backing I may receive from Putin and even the Shangai5- frankly, we might see something happening for the 1st time :… Read more »

Well, it seems that they’ll also have to resettle again around Ankara sooner than they may think about…
