BREAKING: Turkish air force gains revenge on Syrian forces in Afrin

AFRIN, Syria – An outpost for the Syrian forces near Afrin in the country’s northwest was hit by an airstrike conducted by a Turkish jet killing six fighters – including a colonel – and injuring two others, according to Al-Masdar News.

The attack occurred on a gathering of pro-government fighters stationed along the road linking Afrin to Nubl and al-Zahraa towns.

The road is extensively used by thousands of civilians who fled the battles in Afrin, particularly after the Turkish-backed militants managed to entirely seize the city, the Al-Masdar report explained.

It is believed that this strike was in revenge because last night Syrian pro-government forces attacked Turkish military positions near the terrorist-held town of Anadan in western Aleppo countryside. Further details of this can be read here.

    Russia will have to step in and shut this down.

    Turkey is a hungry beast right now. Syria doesn’t need to waste manpower on a situation that Russia will “fix” later.

      Turks belong in Turkey. Send them back alive or if they resist just bomb them out of the place.

    Where are the Syrian A A systems and jets to defend their Syrian assets?

  • Momentum

    The Turks are Sunni Jihadists at heart and they will not be happy nor cease this type of victory until Assad and the Alawite led/influenced Syrian government falls and either a chaos state or a Salalfi backwards one replaces it. Either Syria has to figure out a way to stop them (unlikely) or Russia needs to step up their game if they are seriously allies of Assad.

    The winds smell of betrayal.

    “Russian and Turkish Presidents, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan , hailed
    efficient cooperation between the two countries on matters of Syrian
    settlement, the Kremlin press service said on Monday after their
    telephone conversation.

    “Both sides expressed their intention to continue joint efforts
    towards strengthening mutually beneficial Russian-Turkish cooperation. A
    regular meeting of the top-level Cooperation Council scheduled for
    early April will contribute to that,” the Kremlin said.

    The Turkish president congratulated Putin on his convincing victory
    at Sunday’s presidential election in Russia, the Kremlin added.”
