Aleppo, Syria (1:45 P.M.) – The Turkish Special Forces, alongside the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Faylaq Al-Sham, reportedly captured their first village during this new offensive dubbed “Operation Euphrates Shield.”

According to Faylaq Al-Sham’s official media wing, their forces captured the village of Tal Katlijah after the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) terrorists quickly abandoned the area in order to reinforce Jarabulus.

ISIS has mostly abandoned the small area between Jarabulus and the Turkish border, leaving only small units to resist the advancing Turkish-backed rebels.

The Turkish-backed rebels are now attacking the hilltop village of Tal Sha’er, which is along the road to Jarabulus.

Backed by at least +25 tanks and armored vehicles. This will be a quick offensive I think. ISIS garrison in Jarablus is not particularly renowned. Not Diyala ISIS exactly.

Do you know how many jews are on Earth? BTW, there’s still only one Rotschild being in the list of Billionaires and he’s in the lower list… Israel as 8.9M inhabitants including 2M arab muslims, some christians and numbers of atheists/agnostics, Buddhists… So there must be only around 5M zionists. For GNP, Israel is 37th Turkey is 18th, KSA is 19th, Iran 29th, UAE 31st , even Columbia or South Africa have a bigger GNP than Israel!!!! Now consider the GNI per capita, Israel is ranked 31st. #1?

except they own the central banks of all countries in the world except 3 or 4. that means they control the creation of money which makes them infinitely wealthy.

The Gulf countries are Zionist collaborators. Jewish people have the most per capita billionaires than anyone else.

HALF of the American billionaires are Jews while 10 of the top 50 billionaires of the world are Jews. That is insane looking at their population.

The Rothschild wealth has not been lost (for the most part) just divided numerous heirs.

Israel has smaller population that is why it has a low GNP always look per capita. And like I said before they run America.

Nothing wrong with being rich but that is just scary.

the drama that the #US, #NATO, Islamic servants and #Erdogan think they can do whatever they want in #Syria … will have future negative consequences . #Assad sooner or later, with its allies , will report directly to the invaders and put #Putin compelled to choose definitely .

Bad analysis : NATO is NOT in the equation! If NATO was in, they’d be around 4000 airstrikes a day. NATO has no political power and can only be activated by 3 factors : a non NATO country attacks a NATO country’s soil, UN requiring intervention, EU requiring intervention. You’ve got several regional powers with a double agenda strongly implied and doing a crazy mess and although I consider the US foreign politics fuckin stinks, in some ways, they’ve always been very naive especially at the DoS level let”s say at least since the other moron, the actor who his… Read more »

Ofcourse Erdolfgang tries to capture a city in North Syria. If they don’t and the Kurds do they will have no way left to deliver weapens to IS and to get oil from IS…. The kurds fight bravely against IS and they have already completed the north border of Syria
