In what has become increasingly confusing, ten Free Syrian Army (FSA) groups in the Kurdish YPG-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have renounced Turkey’s Euphrates Shield operation that is aiming to expell the SDF and ISIS from areas west of the Euphrates river along the Syria-Turkey border.

In the same video the FSA factions in the SDF denounced Turkey’s targeting of civilians in which at least 20 died in Jeb el-Kusa and at least another 15 in al-Amarnah by airstrikes and artillery fire.

Euphrates Shield is being conducted by Free Syrian Army groups, Turkey-backed Islamist proxies and Turkish military forces.

Effectively Free Syrian Army groups are at civil war with each other in the Jarablus area in northern Syria.

The Turkish-led forces have successfully expelled the NDF from all areas south of the Sarjur river.

“The Turkish-led forces have successfully expelled the NDF from all areas south of the Sarjur river.” there are three typos: 1. SDF not NDF; 2. the river is called Sajur not Sarjur; 3. areas north of not south of sajur

Things are nuttier than 3D-Chess and Chess-Boxing…
I don’t have any conflict in mind with such an intricate pattern of factions fighting each other…
Anyway, as I’ve already stated, all the REAL ‘moderate rebels’ have joined SDF or even SAA, the so-called groups you see operating with Nusra, Turkey, etc, are pure shitlamists or mercenaries and not moderate at all, cf. al-Zinki!
Turkey is simply backing al-Qaeda and US won’t ever recognize they’ve been simply DECEIVED into backing terror gangs (well, I hope so as if they did it consciously, well, ust remeber how Osama backstabbed them on 9/11… Never trust a mujahideen!)
