The sniper footage that was on the Turkish news is from the Medal of Honor game from 2010. Things can't be going so well for the Turks if they have to resort to video games for propaganda.

I had a feeling! Thank goodness. I said to myself "self, why does this look like quick scope?!"
But I saw them show it on their news feed as well, so I went with it. Thank goodness, Nobody is that good.
I knew they were doing some serious disinformation, but for their own news people to be using video game footage? Now thats bad.

A couple of successful tank hits and a captured infantry fighting vehicle from this week.

There are rumors that there have been no air strikes in the last few days from the Turkish Air Force, and even the drones are staying behind the border. Could it be related to other allegations that Syrian Air Defenses have deployed air defense missiles near the border in North Syria??

BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:55 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has recently deployed air defense missiles to the northern provinces of Idlib and Aleppo, following the Turkish military’s incursion in both governorates, the Reuters News Agency quoted a military commander on Monday.

“The Syrian Army calls up new air defences and anti-aircraft missiles to areas on the frontlines with the militants in the countryside of Aleppo and Idlib,” the commander told Reuters.

“They cover the air space of the Syrian north,” the report added.

Yes I am hearing the same thing; furthermore, there was a convoy of at least 2000 YPG fighters which reached Afrin on the night of the 6th to help boaster the defense of Afrin. youtu.be...


Something I have not seen reported which is, American Troops are positioning to stop Turkey's advance in another sector.. Turkey has told America to get out or suffer the consequences according to this Israeli news channel. youtu.be...


I am not there and do not have any known friends in the area so all I can go on is what I read or hear..

Interesting if US forces and Turkish forces lock horns over the Kurds.. People keep saying ISIS is defeated but they are wrong.. ISIS is just laying low and regrouping IMO.. Syrian troops are still fighting ISIS and capturing villages controlled by them..

On Northern Syria Front Line, U.S. and Turkey Head Into Tense Face-off
MANBIJ, Syria — Two senior American generals came to the front line outside the Syrian city of Manbij on Wednesday flying outsized American flags on their vehicles, in case pro-Turkish forces just the other side of the no man’s land, 20 yards away, did not realize who they were.

“We’re very proud of our positions here, and we want to make sure everybody knows it,” said Maj. Gen. Jamie Jarrard, the Special Operations commander for the American-led coalition in Iraq and Syria.

If the message to Turkey was not clear already, the overall coalition commander accompanying General Jarrard, Lt. Gen. Paul Funk, elaborated. “You hit us, we will respond aggressively. We will defend ourselves.”

The trip was the first by such senior United States military officers to the front in northern Syria since Turkey’s president threatened to attack the city of Manbij, calling it a bastion of terrorists and demanding that American forces leave.

I have been pretty busy so not too many updates. Hardly even any posts on the board. Anyways, this one is from three days ago, but we have not seen it yet in this thread, so I will throw it in there. It is the remains of a Turkish UAV that has been taken out of the sky over the Afrin area.
