Turkey sends soldiers to fight US Backed Kurds
Wednesday, 21 June 2017

The situation in Syria was not complicated enough it seems.

Turkish Special Forces arrived today, at northern Aleppo countryside to shore up its proxies in what might be a new crackdown against the Kurdish forces.

The reinforcements greatly welcomed by local residents were deployed to help the Turkish-backed Euphrates Shield a coalition of FSA-affiliated factions expel the Kurdish fighters from Tal Rifaat and other nearby towns as battles between the two warring parties re-erupted recently.

Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has vowed to use force to drive out the Kurds from the towns and villages they had seized earlier, accusing them of ethnic cleansing against the indigenous Arab inhabitants.

Even though Turkey has officially declared the end of the Euphrates Shield Operation (aimed at securing the borders against the Kurds as well as Islamic State), its proxies are still controlling large swathes of territories along the borders to prevent both the Kurds and ISIS from threatening the Turkish national security.
