Footage has emerged of Turkish troops and armored NATO vehicles active in operation Euphrates Shield, an offensive focused on weakening ISIS and the Kurdish YPG in favor of propping up the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

Nevertheless, the Islamic State has destroyed at least 6 Turkish tanks in the past month. Hours ago, news also emerged that ISIS has retaken some 20 villages from the FSA, thus pushing back Turkish-backed rebels to Al-Rai, a border town neighbouring Turkey.

Recently, pictures revealed that the U.S. had also established a military base at Tell Abyad in Kurdish-held northern Syria, even hoisting the American flag on Syrian soil.

Are they planning to scare off #ISIS? If #turkey doesn’t use them and loose #AlRai, @EuphratesShield becomes joke!

@leithfadel #Turkey #Syria isn’t that evidence of an illegal invasion of another sovereign state?
