from  Forces Democràtiques Sirianes     The Central Command of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDR) has issued a STATEMENT on the ongoing confrontations with the Turkish army. In the same he reports that in the last seven days 308 Turkish soldiers and mercenaries, including four officers and a leader of the Turkish bands, died. 54 civilians died and 134 were injured by terrorist attacks by the Turkish army. Finally, 43 SDF combatants lost their lives during the fighting.

(note: the SDF does not normally exaggerate. Sputnik also reported the 308 deaths HERE. The SDF is the multi ethnic revolutionary army that defeated ISIS and includes the YPG/J and  Arab, Christian, Yazidi , Turkmen, International Brigade etc.  )

“Our forces are fulfilling their duties heroically against the brutal attacks of the Turkish state and defending the people of Afrin against the Turkish invasion and the attacks of Front Al-Nusra.” Nusra is currently called HTS and is the former Al Qaeda in Syria.

The SDF said that despite having technological advantages, NATO weapons and German tanks (Leopard models), the Turkish army could not advance against the SDF fighters and suffered a great number of losses.

INTERNATIONALS …NO PASARAN Şervanên Enternasyonal Ber bi Efrînê ve Ketin Rê … Di roja 5. A berxwedana Efrînê de bi dehan ….

The Turkish backed mercenary bands spontaneously attacked the military positions of the SDF with heavy machine guns.

Cantó de Kobanê

Cantó de Cizirê / Al Jazira

Three civilians died due to artillery and mortar attacks by the Turkish army.


note: ”Already the invasion seems to be getting bogged down despite the immense Turkish superiority in numbers and armaments. It seems that Erdogan cannot use his own infantry of unwilling drafted soldiers for fear of mutiny, and must rely on mercenaries recruited from the dregs of failed Syrian militias, who are happy to take Turkish salaries but understandably unwilling to give their lives.
