Aleppo, Syria (9:50 A.M.) – The Kurdish-led “People’s Protection Unit” (YPG) have formally withdrawn from the strategic city of Menbeij in northern Aleppo today after several threats were made by the Turkish regime this week.

The YPG withdrew east of the Euphrates River and transferred control of the city to their allies from the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF).

Despite withdrawing east of the Euphrates River, the YPG still finds themselves under attack by the Turkish military, who has taken the opportunity to target the Kurds in northern Syria.

As all the shithadists use the Otto Skorzeny’s tactics, why not using an older then Werewolf Skorzeny s**t by, for YPG, using the root of false flag principle, showing looking like… FSA?
Skorzeny’s Operation Greif, in which German soldiers were to infiltrate through enemy lines, using their opponents’ languages, uniforms, and customs.

Applaus to Erdogan and turkish army!
Kill those traitors, Kurds. They are zionist stooges, CIA assets. Away with them.
Hope, that Assad and Erdogan, Iraq, Iran eliminate the kurdish problem.
