BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:15 P.M.) – The Turkish Armed Forces claimed that at least 811 fighters from the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) and so-called Islamic State (ISIS) have been killed over the last 13 days of Operation Olive Branch.

In addition to killing 811 fighters, the Turkish Armed Forces alleged that 20 villages and 27 zones, including seven mountaintops were captured since the start of Operation Olive Branch in the Afrin region of northern Aleppo.

Despite these claims by the Turkish Armed Forces, there has been no proof of any Islamic State presence inside the Afrin region or any part of the Aleppo Governorate.

The Turkish-backed rebels were able to make some important advances on Thursday, as their forces captured the imperative town of Bulbul in the northwestern corridor of Afrin.

Considering what hospitals say, Turkey obviously killed 811 civilians!

Wow, seven hilltops! That includes includes some like Mount Barsaya, already captured three or four times by Turks and their mercenaries with a count of three?

In this pace, Afrin will likely be conquered by mid 2023, that is if the turkish mercenaries last that long.
