According to sources in Syria, the Syrian Army recently told Reuters that they are prepared to clash with Turkey-backed FSA fighters near Al-Bab, if necessary.

Al-Bab is a town in Aleppo province, and is situated 30km south of the Syria-Turkey border. The town is currently held by ISIS terrorists, but a number of forces, including the Syrian Army, are competing to liberate it.

Turkey has provided direct military assistance to rebels in Northern Syria, and they have regularly attacked Kurdish forces in Syria, as Erdogan has deemed their quasi-state in Northern Syria a threat to Turkey.

Turkey has lost a significant amount of troops and armaments as a result of its intervention in Syria, and ISIS is using captured equipment against Turkish forces.

Attacking Turks or Turks mercenary assets is premature.

No sólo palabras, debe concretarse en hechos y el pueblo Sirio estará agradecido con la expulsión del ejercito invasor y sus mercenarios.

It would be an error, at least now. Let Turkey+proxies take hits and at the same time hit Daesh. Nonetheless the quagmire hurts both but the longer it’ll last, the most Erdolf/AKP will take hits in the public opinion.

The problem – he gets a town and it is a Turkmens heavy area. Remember Northern Cyprus!
