Aleppo, Syria (11:30 A.M.) – Minutes ago, Turkish Army tanks reportedly crossed the Syrian border to enter the Aleppo Governorate’s northern countryside.

Dozens of these Turkish Army tanks crossed the Syrian border in order to participate in “Operation Euphrates Shield,” which is an offensive to capture the Islamic State stronghold of Jarabulus on the Euphrates River.

The Turkish Army and Free Syrian Army (FSA) have yet to attack the Islamic State forces; however, they are expected to launch their assault shortly.

I want ISIS to win, but with massive casualties on all sides, while the Syrian Army sits, waiting. When these devious scum have slaughtered each other, then it will be time for the lions of the SAA to rise, call to their mighty Russian allies, and sweep these assorted filth from the sacred soil of Syria.

Seriously you want massive casualties on all sides? Which horse do you own in this race?
Wanting ISIS to win? Perhaps you’re on the wrong site, and the wrong side of future history.

Well, as they themselve said they were worst than Da’ish and proved it, we can already say there’ll be very very graphic+18 articles soon!
I bet they’ll go further like beheading a 6 or 7y old kurdish girl or eating a kurdish baby in front of his mother or make her eat her own child, then rape her before cutting her into pieces… Although I wouldn’t be surprised if I learnt they already did such thing but just didn’t made a footage…

Seems to me it’s more anti-kurdish operation, than anti-IS. Turky wants to prevent creation of kurdish state along it’s border, and is planning to take territory from IS ahead of kurds. Then it will make some sort of deal with Assad, which also doesn’t need kurdish state and all three powers (Assad, Turkey and IS) will direct more of their military activity against kurds, then against each other.

That brings the recent international war crimes tally to two — the USA and Turkey, who flagrantly invade other nations under arms.
Anyone who has followed this knows Turkey’s insane gangster Erdogan is just making sure his Ahrar al-Sham murderers still get their ammo.

So the real question is- What deal did Assad make with Erdogan to allow this? After all of the jihadists and turkmen militias Turkey has supported against Assad it seems quite strange.
Coincidence that Turkey is rolling into Rojava too?

Samuel Raamiah Whitrod I know of no deal. That has never bothered Sultan Erdogan, who likes to throw his weight around, as at Kessab, where his creatures killed Syrian Armenians, as Turks like to do.

I think none of the commentors realize that the operation is done in coordination with Assad and Russia. Turkish president announced that PYD and ISIS are targetted to preserve the integrity of Syria. Turkish foreign policy has changed drastically after 15th of July incident. Last week, Turkish PM for thr first time declared that ASSAD should be considered in transition. Another important thing is, after the Hassakeh bombardment, Syrian regime announced that its done against PYD, which is the PKK’s Syria branch. Another “first time” event. Turkish F16s have crossed into Syria. Its done in coordination with Russia. For Turkey,… Read more »
