BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:45 P.M.) – Foreign fighters from the United States, Canada and Europe are arriving in Syria’s Afrin region to fight alongside Kurdish forces against the Turkish Army and militant groups allied to it.

Ranks of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units based in the Syrian region of Afrin (Aleppo province) have received a boost recently with the arrival of experienced North American and European volunteer fighters.

Almost all of the foreign volunteers have combat experience, having fought alongside Kurdish forces in major battles against ISIS throughout Raqqa and Deir Ezzor provinces.

In a recent video, the volunteers vowed to fight Turkish ‘terrorists’ to the death, stating that they would not remain silent whilst territories saved from ISIS were being ‘invaded.’

One week ago, the Turkish Army and Free Syrian Army-linked militias under its command launched an offensive operation against Kurdish-held Afrin with tanks, warplanes and well-over 10,000 troops and insurgent fighters.

Easy to understand : PYD is a far left party (green-anarcho). They receive help from far left from all around the world, no matter if they are anarcho and commies.
Remember the good ole proverb : a good fascist is a dead fascist…
And moreover they even used US as useful idiots to pay for their weapons…
The Turdish regime being islamofascist, as ISIS which are nazislamist, these rascals and their cronies are legitimate targets.
BTW… Death to Erdogan!

This is amazing.
So the West is still supporting the separatist Kurds, this is the best scenario that Russia could have ever hoped for.
Imagine the headline: Nato members attack one of their own, we another one to replace Turkey. Any takers? No thanks, start thinking about NATOEXIT?

Turkey and all aspiring Nato members will be steering towards Russia. I never thought this could go so well.

Foolish. Poor guys. totally romantic and useless arguments. Maybe they are thinkin about PKK is like flowers children. I m living İstanbul and i know dark side of PKK Terror organisation. They are drug cartel and assasins. They punished innocent people for this obsessive ideas. Any strong country cant accept a armed terrorist organisations in the borders. is this not understandable?

AFAIK, Commie/Anarcho fighters are not in for the money. Nobody giives a f**k if US pay for the weapons.
Erdogan’s an islamofascist, all he deserves is to be hanged to the first tree.
