According to reports by Al-Dorar, Turkish forces with bulldozers and diggers penetrated as much as 500m into Idlib province near Aqrabat.

These forces began to dig up farmland and olive trees, in which some trees can take up to ten years before they bear fruit with the minimum at three years using modern methods.

The Turkish forces supposedly entered Aqrabat to prepare for a ground invasion against the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces in Afrin procince. This report however could not be corroborated by Al-Masdar News.

Al-Dorar reported that the Turkish forces withdrew under pressure from local farmers who were angered by the destruction of their farmland and olive trees.

In fact, according to locals, they’re in to build a new secured border checkpoint to replace the one blowed a few days ago by a VBIED, this ones would have a configuration able to block new VBIEDs attacks. In fact, it’s very likely that very soon, Qaedans will have no more support from Turkey. I wouldn’t even be surprised if the relations between Turkish regime and PKK ended by being settled by smth like the exactions against Kurdish people were fuelled by Gullenists in the military which acted to provoke a civil war in Turkey between the state and the… Read more »

Sounds like the building of a security wall or checkpoint in the Israel style = cutting the orchards of the neighbors.

Sunni Turks can also… Read more »
