BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – The Turkish Minister of Defense Hulusi Akar stated during his visit in Qatar on Thursday that his armed forces are preparing to kickoff their long-awaited military operation east of the Euphrates.

“We have Manbij and east of the Euphrates ahead of us right now. We’re working intensely in this regard,” he said, as quoted by the Anadolu News Agency.

The Turkish Minister of Defense then threatened to bury the Kurdish forces inside their trenches that have been recently dug along the Syrian border.

According to Akar, the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG), who he has labeled as ‘terrorists’, is said to be “digging some trenches and tunnels in Manbij and east of the Euphrates. Whatever they dig, trenches or tunnels … when the time comes they will be buried in the trenches that they dig. Of this there should be no doubt.” 

Akar added, “We are following developments closely. Operational and intelligence units of the Turkish Republic have been making every kind of effort that they can and continuing to work night and day to discharge their duties in the best way.”

Kurds haven’t been very bright for a few centuries. Ever since, say, Saladin led them. Being such recidivists they are easily played the fool by connivers such as Jizraili-USSA Presidente Trumpfanyahu. So prepare to be driven away from Turkei or be blown to bits kurdish meatheads.

I don’t fully agree with you. Everybody is making mistakes. Kurds made a huge mistake laying in one bed with the Gringos. However, they have the chance to take the right and clever decision this time to join the Syrian government. Syrians must give them a second chance and get together again as brothers. Of course, if Kurds are so naive and don’t to the right thing again, they must face the fate they fully deserve. One time mistake is normal, two time same mistake is crime…
