The Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) attacked a military camp on Turkish territory used by troops for preparing Operation Olive Branch in Syria’s Kurdish-held Afrin, the SDF media center said on Saturday.

“Our forces carried out a specific military operation against the invaders and their operation desk in Qara Xaneh township in the Turkish state of Hatay, killing 7 terrorists including Turkish soldiers, in addition to a large number of wounded. Therefore, our forces call on civilians to stay away from the military points of the Turkish invasion army and Daesh/ Al-Nusra points, because all of the military points are legitimate targets for our forces,” the SDF statement read.

On January 20, Ankara launched Operation Olive Branch in Afrin. Ankara has said its offensive was aimed at clearing the Turkish border with Syria from terrorist presence.

Turkey considers the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the Democratic Union Party (PYD) to be linked to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), listed as a terrorist organization by Ankara.

Damascus has expressed its opposition to the Turkish operation in Afrin, saying that such actions violated Syrian sovereignty.

Wouldn’t this be a good time for the Kurds to take back ancient Kurdish land?

According to Kurds’ narrative, everywhere a Kurd tribe settles, is “their” land “historically”. Including the former Armenian places in Turkey – that is, once the Kurds happily helped kemalists into genociding the natives.
Even Sheik Maqsud neighborhood in Aleppo is “kurdistan”.

Should the Chinese act the Kurdish way, all the Chinatowns scattered around the globe would be sovereign territory of the PRC (or Taiwan).
