On Day 5 of their incursion, Turkish forces are advancing inside Tal Abyad

DEBKAfile’s military sources report that by Sunday,  Turkish forces had advanced into the northeastern Syrian town of Tal Abyad, a ghost town since most of the population has fled. The town is expected to fall quickly since it is defended only by small Kurdish contingents. Saturday and Sunday, the Turkish force focused on the Kurdish positions commanding the M4 highway. If they can seize control, the Turks will have two options: to drive east towards the Euphrates or west towards Idlib. If the latter, they will strengthen their grip of Syrian territory spanning a swath from north of Aleppo up to the Turkish border and link up with their Afrin pocket. Heavy fighting continues in Ras al Ayan after Turkish troops overran several districts. The number of refugees on the run from the Turkish invaders is now estimated at 130,000.

      You are actually, and what have the Jews got to do with Turks and your Islamist Jihadi brothers killing Kurds?
      Siz gerçektesiniz ve yahudilerin Kürtleri öldüren Türklerle ve İslamcı Cihadi kardeşlerinizle ne ilgisi var?

    Irak’da Kurtler’i silahlandirip Sia-Arablar’la savastirmak istediler. Simdide silahlandirdiklari Suriyeli Kurtler’i Turklerle savastirmak istediler. Her ikiside katiksiz Yahudi plan-projesiydi. Olan Kurtler’e oldu. Elin Amerikasi’na Israil’lisine guvenmenin aci sonu.
