BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:40 A.M.) – For the second time this week, the Turkish military has attacked the YPG controlled Afrin Canton in northwest Aleppo, pro-YPG activists reported on Thursday.

According to these activists, the Turkish military fired several artillery shells and missiles towards the towns of Iskan, Shader, and Jamah in the southern part of the Afrin Canton.

The aforementioned towns are located along the YPG supply route to their forces in the northern part of the Afrin Canton.

In response to the recent threats from the Erdogan regime, the YPG has sent several units to reinforce the Afrin Canton in anticipation for a possible invasion by Turkish forces.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
