Deadliest day for Turkish military in Afrin offensive

The Turkish army said seven Turkish soldiers were killed in action on Saturday – raising to 14 its death toll since their Jan. 20 invasion of Afrin. Five died in a Kurdish YPG militia attack on a Turkish tank, one more in Afrin and a seventh on the Turkish side of the border. It was the heaviest Turkish death toll in one day since the operation, called Operation Olive Branch by Ankara, was launched in Afrin for the goal of driving the US-backed Kurdish militia out of northern Syria.

    There are two great virtues that glorifies a human being. Man being brave, woman being fair and honest. Apart from these two there is one virtue for both men and women. To be loyal to their home and their country and even give their life for it. Turks are heroes having this virtue. Because of this, we can always kill Turks. But we can never defeat them.

      Feel sorry for Turkey. Extremely nice people – but a horrible islamic dictator now busy undoing all the good since Atatürk. Napoleon was only speaking for himself and for France at that time and of course was defeated. Turkey is now fighting another kind of war against people that believe they are fighting for their homes and lives too. Looks like the start of something very bad.

    Turks clashed with Iranian forces. Turkey is giving alternative to USA to curb Iranian expansion. Read Janes intelligence website. Debka is becoming more and more site of disinformation. Disappointing
