BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:12 A.M.) – Turkey cannot fight the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) at the expense of the regional fight to defeat ISIS, acting US Department of State spokesperson Mark Toner said in a briefing on Tuesday, Kom News reported.

“We’re also cognizant of the threat that the PKK poses to Turkey but again the point we made to Turkey and I’m making now is that Turkey cannot pursue that fight at the expense of our common fight against the terrorists that threaten us all,” Toner told reporters.

“We are very concerned, deeply concerned that Turkey conducted airstrikes earlier today in Northern Syria as well as Northern Iraq without proper coordination either with the United States or the broader coalition to defeat ISIS,” Toner added.

Turkey considers the PKK as a terrorist group, in which they are also engaged in the fight against ISIS in both Syria and Iraq.

Time to do a false flag in Rojava with a little yellow smoke-bomb and Halloween make-up on children 😀

Oh, this user would find that funny, wouldn’t he? False flag operations killing children… That’s the stuff “Daeshbags Sux” likes to make sick jokes about. Lo and behold people, lo and behold. Have you noticed how the user systematically resorts to sarcasm and to adding smiley emoticons to his comments? While we, who are actually affected by what’s going on in Syria and the region, we who may have lost many loved ones in these wars, cry tears of blood for the martyred people of Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Bahrein, Sudan, Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and so on. Contrary to this user,… Read more »

Dr. Hakim, IMHO DbSx means that the Kurds should imitate Qaeda and pretend the Turkish used gas. Beat the war hawks at their own game. p.s. Since WW I the US hawks propaganda uses the image of dead children in war propaganda. The US public was motivated to join WW I when the Lusitania exploded from a secondary detonation from the carried contraband explosives after a German submarine torpedo attack. The Brits had send this Brit navy subsidized help cruiser intentionally into certain danger. At that time she war carrying US passengers among them children. The White Helmets are down… Read more »

Next time shoot down Turkish planes. If the US won’t do it directly they can ask Russians for such a little favour. They’ll never showp up again.

Why would Russia want to do the dirty work of the US ? The US has been the principle cause of the disaster in Syria, Iraq, Libya et al and its only fair that the US is forced to face the conflict between two of their allies.

It will be interesting to see what happens if a Turkish attack on the Kurds kills any US personnel 🙂

US is far from home, they should tuck tail and head back. They were warned, its their own issue if they dont heed the warnings.

After the Turks and their mercenaries fared so bad against IS?

This time there will be no SAA to force the Turks’ enemies to retreat.

“Turkey cannot fight PKK and jeopardize fight against ISIS” – TRANSLATION: “Turkey can fight PKK as much as they want once ISIS has been dealt with”.

SDF should pull the Raqqa op immediately, and move to attack the Turkish forces at Jarabalus.

SDF will be exterminated just like ISIS will be once the dust settles (no such thing as a better terrorist group), you can bet your bottom dollar on that.

The Kurds and iSIS are both US proxy forces, intended to split Syria. The Kurds will be subject to the same conditions that the terrorists have to face – renounce violence and join with the Syrian Arab Army or be treated as terrorists

Real friends of Syria and Al-Assad would never back the PKK’s designs with such an amount of enthusiasm as some zionist cyber-agitators here do. It’s not so hard to figure out why: zionists are no friends of Syria, nor of Al-Assad. But whenever they claim to be, it’s nothing but a cover designed to dupe their interlocutors into lowering their guard towards other zionist- and wahhabi-sponsored talking points (such as genocidal islamophobia, crazy conspiracy theories about a supposed “secret alliance” between Syria/Iran and Israel, promotion of ethnic separatism against the territorial integrity of Mideast countries, open support for FSA-/ISIS-affiliated terrorist… Read more »

Time for Turkey to send in the ground troops, this time 100k and wipe everything clean. Go ahead, make it a no fly zone. Turkey is bordering whereas Russia and USA are far far away.
