Not only Arabs but also Turkmens, Kurds and Assyrians have suffered from the PYD’s forced migration policy in Syria. The displaced people, now living in very hard conditions, are dreaming of the day they will return to their homes.
Since Turkey implemented “boots on the ground” strategy in northern Syria, the Syrian crisis has become more complicated. Only those who are determined will land on both feet at the end of this crisis.
As part of their defense strategy, the YPG/PKK had started digging ditches, building tunnels, making barricades, and planting bombs much earlier. It is commented that the ditches and tunnels in Afrin seem professional and this evokes the question if YPG received a foreign support or training to build them.
Gulf countries seem to have no strategy for dealing with Iran, and they are short-sighted in not supporting Turkey, even though Turkey is the only country capable of pushing back against Iran in the region.
A total of 3,444 terrorists have been “neutralized” since the start of Operation Olive Branch in Syria’s northwestern Afrin region, the Turkish General Staff said in a statement on Wednesday morning.
Turkey’s president said on Wednesday he hopes the northwestern Syrian city of Afrin would be liberated from terrorists “by this evening.”
Evidence of the terrorist YPG/PKK using young children uncovered in the Turkish-led operation in Syria’s Afrin region confirms what many international rights watchdogs already reported: the terrorist recruitment of minors.
Abandoning the myths about the YPG would serve the US well. Then comes the hard task of crafting a realistic Syria policy that is coordinated with Turkey and one that can achieve lasting stability.
Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) and Free Syrian Army (FSA) are making rapid advances during ongoing Operation Olive Branch, and now need to advance just 1.5 kilometers (0.9 mile) from east to southwest to surround Afrin’s city center
