Heavy casualties on both sides of Turkish-Kurdish Afrin battle

Since launching their offensive against Kurdish forces in Afrin, northern Syria, the Turkish army and its Syrian ally have suffered nearly 200 dead, according to opposition monitoring groups. Ankara claims the loss of only 33 soldiers in action and 93 injured. The Kurdish defenders have suffered between 150 and 200 dead, say those monitors. The Turkish operation, which began just over three weeks ago, is making little headway.

    Good let the Kurds kill as many Turks as possible. The Turks are great at genocide and the world is letting the Turks do another holocaust

        He cannot stop them without starting a proper war with Israel. Also, if you had taken note – it took between 15-20 russian -supplied missiles to take out only one F16 that was flying too high. Russia does need Israel’s co-operation.

    Israel has never bombed syrian people you ignorant fuck. Israel has rendered more aid and support to syran people near the golan than syria has in the last 7 years, and has only bombed iranian and syrian positions that threaten those syrian people, or weapons transfers to hezbollah that threaten Israeli lives, Jewish, Arab Muslim, Arab Christian, Druze, Bahai, all people that live in Israel. Get your facts straight before posting here you peasant.

    Turkish losses are around 20 whereas PKK terorists lost more than 1200. The operation is going as planned. TA army is close to Afrin.

    Iran took Kirkuk in 4h and in 48h finished the clearing all the oil fields in the area. Kirkuk oilfields produce 600,000 barrels oil per day which is now pumping to Iranian refineries in northwest. I’m very disappointed with Turkish army
