BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:31 A.M.) – Earlier today, Al-Masdar News reported that the Turkish Army once again attacked the Kurdish-led forces in northern Syria, targeting the positions of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the Afrin Canton of northern Aleppo countryside.

The Turkish Army heavily shelled the villages of Deir Ballout, Malaa Khalil, Furfrak, and Qara Baba in the Afrin Canton according to local activists.

However, in retaliation, a Turkish soldier was killed from shot by an SDF sniper from across the border in Syria, the Turkish military confirmed on Wednesday.

The Turkish military announced in a statement that it immediately returned fire on SDF positions. No casualties were reported in the return fire.

The Turkish soldier was killed in the province of Hatay that borders Syria.

The author is literally an idiot as well as most fools that read this garbage. Your opinion is worth less than the soiled tampon of a kurdish prostitute.

What kind of language is that? ‘Neutralized’ ?!

You should treat groups what they claim themselves. For example Kurdish guerilla call themselves YPG. Turkey call them terrorist. You should call them YPG, or Kurdish militia whatever.

You talk with Kurdish guerilla’s mouth. You call yourselves reporter..

People like you still think Turkish army is İslamic. Turkish army is secular. Nail it into your head.

Secondly they are Kurdish. Not defending Syrians, defends Kurds..

Legally speaking, Turkey is leading an INVASION and a WAR OF AGGRESSION against Syria, as if the previously PROXY-WAR wasn’t enough. In case you wouldn’t know, dear Oguz, a proxy-war through militia is also a casus belli, exactly like when Iran funds/arms Hezbollah or Turkey funds/arms Hamas. In other terms, nonetheless Syria but also Israel would have the perfect right, under international law, to launch a full scale attack against Turkey! If we consider the Turkish attack against Russian Su-24 in 2015, same thing, BTW, with an average 3-5 violations of Greek airspace ANY day by TuAF, Greek would perfectly… Read more »
