Turkey launches air strikes on Syria border area - BBC News

  • Published on Oct 10, 2019
  • Turkey has launched a ground and air offensive on territory held by Kurdish-led forces in northern Syria.
    Residents began to flee some areas, and plumes of smoke were seen rising from towns near the border.
    President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the operation was to create a "safe zone" cleared of Kurdish militias, which will also house Syrian refugees.
    The Kurdish-led militias have been key US allies in the fight against the Islamic State group, but Ankara regards them as terrorists because of their links to Kurdish rebels inside Turkey.

    Pls dont believe fake news they are tring to use media power with lies. In Turkey there is 5 million Syrian and they are our siblings. They can use our free hospitals and schools. Which europian countary did it? you can look to Syrian or Kurds that live in Turkey. They support to Turkey military. This video for the perception operation. Dont believe fake news please.PKK is not Kurds because Kurds are Turkey's siblings , PKK is a terrorist gruop and they are not İslamic. Most of Kurds live in Turkey. Turks and Kurds are siblings and your fake news cant change that.

    Here's Lindsay Graham grilling General Dunford and Secretary Carter on US strategy of supporting terorists given the US-Turkish ties.

    Full Transcript below:

    LG: Thank you all Secretary Carter have you ever heard of the PYD?

    Carter: I have yes.

    LG: Who are they?

    Carter: They're a Kurdish group one of several a number of...

    LG: have you heard of the YPG?

    Carter: I have heard of them also

    LG: Who are they?

    Carter: Another Kurdish group

    LG: Aren't they the military wing of the PYD?

    Carter: [stammers] they are, yes.

    LG: Is that right general Donford?

    Dunford: **That is correct **

    LG: They are a Leftist Syrian Kurdish political party founded in 2003. Reports indicate that they're aligned or at least have substantial ties to the PKK. Is that true?

    Carter: yes we have..

    LG: Is the PKK a terrorist organization in the eyes of the Turkish government?

    Carter: uh the PKK is a terrorist organization not only in the eyes of the Turkish government but in the eyes of the US government as well, senator.

    LG: Is it as surprising to you that the Turks may be upset with us by arming the YPG in Syria since they're so closely aligned with the PKK?

    Carter: No it's not no it's not at all sir.... we have extensively clarified...... let me just say that and.... and the Chairman's been involved in this as well.... this is...... we have extensive consultations with the Turks

    LG: So Turkey is okay with this?

    Carter: They are not okay with....

    LG: I just got back from Turkey. They are not okay with this. They think this is the dumbest idea in the world and I agree with them. How many of the Syrian democratic forces or whatever we're talking about are Kurds versus Arabs, General Dunford?

    Syria and Kashmir are the biggest problem facing lands that need to be solved through negotiation, or else war is clearly evident and should be avoided at all costs.

    All this, is humans killing other humans, nothing more, nothing less. The reasons they kill are pointless because everyone dies regardless of what you do. All your doing is creating suffering for the ones you love and becoming murderers.

    The elephant in the room is this decision is a direct result of Trump's private meetings with Putin. All of Trump's meetings with Putin need to be reviewed by nonpartisan intelligence officials to know what Trump has agreed to do for Russia. The Pentagon planners and our troops on the ground need to know what Putin's manipulation of Trump holds for the future security of the United States so we don't get blindsided by security damaging decisions from the Whitehouse. Trump himself said he and Putin discussed Syria during their meetings and gave the first clue Putin had decided the US policy on Syria right after one of these early meetings.

    we kurds had enough of Arabs. ... . we don't see any difference between us or the turks. .. . we want to reunite the kurdish part of Syria and Iraq with turkey. . . but if the Turkish plan is to remove kurds from their land and bring Arabs extremists to take over the kurdish cities and villages then turkey will never live in peace again .
    we love the Turkish estate and we want to see us united again . . . but if you bring the Arab extremists back into our region then there will be no peace.

There are plenty of Americans who support the pull out. It's only because Trump decided one thing that MSM takes the opposite position. Too bad MSM doesn't report the news anymore...just opinions.

Thing is Kurds not enemies to us we live in these lands for thousands of years together however ypg feeds pkk and they kill people.Just yesterday they shelled a civilian area and cause civilians to die, one of casulties was even a baby.This is a country's self-defence right, I think u must ask urself why France, Italy, even UK and Usa in Iraq, Syria? What are they doing here for years and why war didnt even stop?
