#Israel has been supporting both #ISIS and #AlQaeda in #Syria:

The "Jihadi Highway" from #Turkey to #Syria long has been an open secret, well-documented by the international media, Syrian activists and Turkish press. Militants often were spotted in border towns buying supplies before crossing into Syria to join #ISIS:

Because the Turkish government controls which journalists are allowed to visit Afrin, the stories published by the pro-AKP publications are very similar to what was being published in the NYT. It is striking that the NYT opted not to cover human rights abuses in #Afrin
Several weeks ago, the Islamist Turkish daily newspaper Yeni Şafak cited a New York Times piece, praising Turkey’s presence in the Afrin province in northern Syria.

Yeni Şafak has a reputation as a pro-AKP newspaper with an established record of publishing hate speech
At first, this story appeared to be yet another false narrative published in furtherance of Turkey’s military aims. I assumed Yeni Şafak was only citing the ‘good part’ of the article from the NYT, and must have been leaving out the all-important context.#Afrin

Good night. Let God be with our soldiers today. Image
Tadiran radio equipment captured by #Karabakh made by Israel's Elbit company, also providing drones to #Azerbaijan .
#Turkey provides drones & mercenaries. #Israel provides drones & equipment. Am I getting it right - their interests meet in fight against first Christian nation? Image

1. Over 3 years have past since the start of the battle for Raqqa. Remembering the brave members of US forces who fought to defeat Daesh alongside our brave Arab, Kurd and Christian #SDF partners.
via @YouTube
2. Six months after that battle started, Trump surrendered #Afrin to Erdogan after @MikePompeo's meeting with three sanctioned Russian intel chiefs in DC. Syrian Christian churches that had survived since the earliest times were looted and desecrated by Turkish backed jihadist
3. including #ISIS and Al-#Qaeda. Then in October last year, after a single call from his Turkish terrorist business associate, Trump surrendered Gire Spi and Tel Abyad again facilitating a #Christian, #Kurds and #Ezidi genocide by Erdogan's jihadist horde.

"Fransa’nın, Türkiye ile ilişkileri 1930’larda.. üst seviyededir. Örneğin Türkiye’nin bu gün Rojava’ya dayattığı Kürtlerin sınırdan 20-30 KM uzak kalmaları talebi, yani sınır boyunca bir Türk kemeri oluşturma niyeti, daha o zamanlara dayanır" -Sabri Cıgerlı

"Ruslar kendilerini her zaman Türkiye’ye daha yakın gördüler. İstanbul Taksim’de bulunan Atatürk ve arkadaşlarının heykelleri arasında iki Rus generalin oldugunu bilmeyen Kürtlerin çoğunlukta olduğu kesin bir durumdur."

SSCB, Kürt hareketlerinin bastırılmasında aktif roller üstleniyor. O dönemler bunun farkında olmayan Kürt gençleri meydanlarda Lenin’i savunuyorlar.

Kurdlere olmadik zulmu eden ve onlari yerinden yurdundan eden irkci Erdogan'in kellesini alanlarin Kurdlerin olmasi tarihsel bir sorumluluktur.

#twitterkurds #Afrin #Ankara
Erdogan Osmanlici degildir, Osmanli karsiti irkci-ittihatci Enver Pasa'nin ta kendisidir.

Osmanli'da Kurdlerin diline ve namusuna goz konulmadi ama Erdogan irkci rejiminde bunlarin hepsi yapildi.

Kurdler en ilkel kan davasini yillarca surdururken bu adamin pesini niye biraksin?
Enver, Talat ve Cemal kactiklari ulkelerde kistirilip soykirima ugrattiklari kavmin cocuklari tarafindan cezalari kesildi, peki Kurdler neden #Afrin, Sur ve Cizre'de zulmedenleri affetsin?

Gec kalmis adalet, adalet degildir.

#THREAD #RANT on #Turkey foreign policy

Another article (not surprisingly on Al Jazeera) trying to convince us that #Ankara is the victim and Turkish foreign policy is on the defence. The approach is superficial at best and ignores a number of facts >>

aljazeera.com/indepth/opinio…
That Turkey unofficially abandoned regime change in #Syria is not the point: same author, in 2013 Hinnebusch & Tur book wrote "Turkey saw an opportunity to bring abt regime change in Damascus at Iran's expense...it was a matter of geopolitical competition between Ankara & Tehran"
Regime change was an unprecedented policy for Ankara to adopt & a revisionist one; by the author's admission, for the purpose of regional power. 4 interventions later it's inaccurate to say that "Turkey's ability to influence the course of the conflict was reduced to a minimum"

Thread recording every known #R9X Hellfire (aka #NinjaMissile & #FlyingGinsu) strike.

The AGM-114R-9X is an inert variant of the AGM-114 "Hellfire" developed by #Lockheed that is meant to reduce risk of civilian casualties while using pop-out blades to maintain lethality.
The #R9X has received much attention since a @WSJ article by @glubold & @wstrobel last year where it was said to have been used "about a half-dozen times" against high level terrorist targets in "#Libya #Syria #Iraq #Yemen & #Somalia"

wsj.com/articles/secre…
Its extreme precision, exotic nature, and increasingly visible usage by what is presumed to be #JSOC and #CIA according to a piece by @FranticGoat for @thewarzonewire have kept it in the spotlight though.

#Syria: devastating day in the town of #Efrin (#Afrin) today. A car bomb went off at the local market, killing over 40 people.
This is the biggest deadly incident in weeks in #Syria. The #coronavirus pandemic and international agreements might have caused the violence to decrease but the war is still far from over and could resume in full force at any moment
#Syria: video of the massive fired that erupted at the #Afrin market after the car bomb explosion.

Nobody has claimed responsibility for the attack so far

Big car bomb near a market full of people in Afrin today. Multiple civilians killed.
Among causalities there are also some children.

I won't post graphic contents but there is a footage of a man burnt inside a car and another one walking near the area of the explosion while burning (probably "just" his clothes).
#Syria #Afrin
At least 13 killed and 30 wounded today in Afrin after a car bomb exploded near a market.
The toll will probably rise.

In 2015, it was estimated a further 20,000 terrorists joined #ISIS in #Iraq and #Syria, according to the National Counterterrorism Center in Washington. The majority of them had traveled to Syria and Iraq through #Turkey:

1/#Turkey had well established "soft power" lines of influence throughout the Greater #MiddleEast (North #Africa, Horn of Africa, Eastern #Mediterranean, etc.).
2/But now #Turkish leaders are ready to assume greater risk to assert overt military power in an expeditionary manner to expand #Turkey's influence, and therefore leverage, on conflicts beyond the country's near abroad (#Libya being farther than say #Cyprus or #Syria).
3/However #Turkish leaders don't want to risk significant casualties to their own forces in these expeditionary ops, whether far away like in #Libya or closer to home like in #Syria, when #Turkey's military has spent so much time and $$ building a proxy force of #Syrian fighters.

#BREAKING: An #USAF's MQ-9 Reaper drone used its Hellfire R9X to slice a top JIhadist commander in pieces in al-Bassuta, #Afrin, #Syria. First footage of the aftermath of the airstrike which left a commander of #AlQaeda affiliated #HTS (Hayat Tahrir al-Sham) & two others dead 👇
This Operation was jointly carried-out by the #CIA & #USAF. The Hellfire R9X managed to turn targets into mince meat without causing any harm to any individual outside the car. It is reported that the dead #HTS commander was cooperating with #Turkey backed #SNA terrorists.
Video shows that the car which was targeted had high speed in the #Azaz-#Afrin road in the northern countryside of #Aleppo outskirt, North of #Syria. Not any other car or individual which was in the road at that time was hit. The missile precisely killed the targets.

PT une autre photo du mm véhicule où on voit clairement l’absence de traces d’explosion Image

1. After the Mosul hostages were released in 2014 to the present, #ISIS and #Turkey have been mutual affiliates. That's 100% certain. @SenateGOP @SenateDems @HouseGOP @HouseDemocrats @FBIWFO @NewYorkStateAG @MarkHerringVA @DefenseIntel @CIA @ODNIgov @NSAGov
2. I defy any two people at any US intelligence of law enforcement to match my reporting on the war to defeat ISIS in Syria starting in 2014 before @BarackObama jumped in. I watched it all in real time and memorialized it in @Twitter that suspended me when Turkey invaded #Afrin.
3. Turkey is ISIS and if @RTErdogan comes here he is subject to arrest for genocide under 18 USC 1091. I doubt he'll be arrested. But IMO he could be arrested under both US and international law. There is no immunity. See Nuremberg UN Resolution.

Post-2003 #Turkey was welcomed in #KRG due to its strong ties w/ #KDP, controlled the KRG market & won lucrative oil deals. AKP's Islamic roots were also considered as a new "hope" for Kurds & Turks address issues. Peace talks strengthened further beautified AKP image...
When Erdogan destroyed the peace talks, there were yet people who were putting blame on the #PKK, i meant some Kurds, especially those close to the KDP & Islamists. Following #Afrin invasion & recent Turkish N# #Syria #Rojava incursion, #Turkey is considered as an enemy in KRG...
#Turkey will never be able to rebuild its reputation in the KRG. Now almost all the Kurds agree that the Turkish state is the number one Kurdish enemy no matter where the Kurds are. One thing the KDP should understand: Turkey is never a friend unless it resolves Kurdish question.
