BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 P.M.) – The Turkish Army and their allies from the Free Syrian Army (TFSA) began an operation on Saturday to push the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) further south of their stronghold, Azaz, in northern Aleppo.

According to preliminary reports from northern Aleppo, the Turkish Army and their rebel allies are attempting to seize and secure two towns from the YPG forces near the key town of Tal Rifa’at.

It appears the Turkish Army and their allies want to capture the towns of Maraanaz and Malkiyah from the YPG and if they’re successful, they will be able to secure Azaz and avoid the constant bombardment of the city.

The YPG’s presence in Maraanaz and Malkiyah has been a constant issue for the Turkish Army, who has a base located directly west of Azaz.

While pro-opposition activists claimed that the YPG has withdrawn from both towns, there has been no proof to corroborate these  reports.

The Turkish Army and their allies are also avoiding any confrontation with the Syrian Armed Forces, who are currently positioned around the town of Tal Rifa’at.

Since the poor quality Islamic plaster desecrations are now falling apart, thanks to multiple earthquakes, the Byzantine mosaics are resurfacing : Any way, the floorplan itself is a cross and the structure makes you can’t get rid from it without the full edifice falling on you… “Turkey Will Not Allow Istanbul to Transform Into Constantinople” – Erdogan Pasha => As things are going on, Turkey is on a good way to balkanisation… Turkey will have to still exist to allow or not allow something… He quoted the battle of the Dardanelles to point that the Ottomaniacs slaughtered the Entente’s navy… Read more »

Well, if FGM-148 Javelin has been distributed to YPG in this area, it might become really rock’n’roll. It’s carried a bit like a RPG, but… outguns a TOW and moreover, is fire’n’forget so you shoot and you backup, unlike TOW, Kornet, Konkurs etc where you have to still here, keeping the guidance system on target until it hits. The warhead is twice as powerful as a TOW and it will hit tanks where they’re the most fragile : over the turret. A few Javelin teams using quad-motorbikes can give hëll to a full armoured battalion, it’s even why FGM-148 was… Read more »

In one short engagement during the 2003 Iraqi invasion, a platoon of US special forces soldiers equipped with Javelins destroyed two T-55 tanks, eight armoured personnel carriers, and four troop trucks

Turks have somewhat better tanks than the Iraqi T55. Will not be so easy as in 2003.

Me gustaría que el ejercito Turco fracase en tierras Sirias como la Monarquía Saudi lo demuestra en tierras de Yemen. Les comparto el video.
