A convoy of fighters waving Syrian flags has apparently entered the northern Kurdish-held region of Afrin, which Turkey is targeting in a cross-border operation, footage on Syrian state TV shows.

The pro-government fighters were filmed entering the village of Nubul in some 20 pickup trucks. An RT source on the ground has confirmed the movement of troops to Afrin.

A reporter at the scene for Syrian state agency SANA that the area where the fighters arrived has already been targeted by an attack from the Turkish side.

The deployment comes after a reported deal between Damascus and Kurdish authorities, which sought the involvement of the central government amid a continued fight against Turkey and the militias supported by Ankara.

Turkish officials earlier warned that their forces would lay siege to the city of Afrin if pro-Damascus fighters show up there.


So pro Government forces entered Afrin in 20 pick up trucks. :lol:

What kind of pick up trucks? I have a thing for Toyota SR5 Diblokambina. Wasn’t anything like that was it?

Did they have ARB Bull Bar with a 12000 pound steel winch? How about a Summit tow bar and rear protection system? Did they also come equipped with a Safari Snorkel?

I like my Ute pick up trucks man. Plenty of room for the Souvla and box of VB.

So friggin cool. Can you send some pics of the pick up trucks please?

:lol: :lol: :lol:

The US has just swallowed Turkeys ejaculation and so will probably ease off, and before Turkey knows it its going to get into a shit state of a war and will have to think twice about troubling Greece and Cyprus.

Soto's balance of power is coming into fruition!


Haven’t you heard?

They have taken Turkey’s side. Turkey would not be in Syria without Russia’s permission.

But Russia also recognizes the Coalition’s territory in Northern Syria. They also recognize the Kurdish Right for self determination. Russia will not impede the Coalition or instruct Syrian Forces to enter Kurdish areas. They told Assad to negotiate with Coalition. But that is impossible because it implies recognition.

Turkey is doing Russia’s bidding even with the Cyprus EEZ.

Northern Syria now belongs to the Kurdish Rebels and no one will get in the way.

The Russians have even hinted that they recognize Kurdish Self determination which may indicate possible Coalition and Russian collusion - they get bases, Coalition gets Northern Syria. They even told Assad to negotiate with the coalition about it which effectively wiped their hands of the situation. Coalition however will not negotiate with criminals.

The situation about Syrian Forces coming to the aid of Kurdish Rebels seems to be fake news. Apparently these Syrian Troops came in 20 Toyota pick up trucks. I only want to know what model and a review on the Toyota SR5. Nothing like a good old fashion utility with all the mod cons in case I need to go to war. I call it doomsday prepping for the zombie apocalypse, because after I gun down 1000 of the walking dead suckers, a man still gotta eat so I need to carry my Souvla meat and fridge and a few cartons of Victoria Bitter Beer to quench my thirst. :lol:

In the end, if 20 Toyotas were able to get into Afrin, then I do not think the Coalition has any worries. Just let us know next time that these pick up truckspass through or if they are VW Amoroks because they are worthy of Coalition bombardment.

It’s a shame the Syrians didn’t notify the presence of these troops and just showed 20 pick up trucks carrying a Syrian flag. We would have had a welcoming air show for them and some fireworks.

Seems you are wrong ..... yet again! :roll:

Syria war: Pro-government forces enter Kurdish-held Afrin

Syrian pro-government forces have entered the Kurdish enclave of Afrin, provoking an immediate response from Turkish forces besieging the area.

The government was asked for military help by a Kurdish militia that has been trying to repel an offensive by Turkish troops and allied Syrian rebels.

Fighters were seen passing through a checkpoint in armoured vehicles.
Turkish troops then shelled the area and Turkey said it had forced the pro-government fighters to retreat.
Turkey had threatened to confront government forces if they intervened, raising the prospect of direct conflict between two of the main players in Syria's civil war.

Paphitis’ (aka General WeeWee) wild opinions without a single link to support them are best ignored........it is just ‘FAKE NEWS’, his personal view and best ignored! :arrow:


It appears that the Kurds have asked the Syrians for help .... they have clearly now realised that they will get no help from the US coalition. Their friends in the US coalition are too busy attacking SAA forces that are trying to reach them.

What is interesting is that the US won’t attack the Turks as they are a NATO ally; they can’t attack the Kurds as they are supposed to be supporting them; the SAA is now embedded with the Kurds so the US can’t attack the SAA without also attacking the Kurds. Yipes ..... the US coalition is running out of people to bomb!

The Kurds have obviously come to an arrangement with the Syrians that will IMO be based on what they were discussing before the US offered them their own State, autonomy within the borders of Syria.

The Russians are sitting on the wall watching the US ‘organise’ events on the ground but will not interfere ...... unless the US coalition makes a bad move ........ they could then use their S-200 and 400’s to bring down the TAF ...... which will piss of Erdogan but he won’t make a move against Russia ..... he has been warned by Putin.

It is certainly getting complicated. :x

The key word there seems to be pro Government Forces. In other words, they are militants on cool Toyota pick up trucks. They can wave as many Syrian Flags as they like, but they are not the Syrian Armed Forces as portrayed by some because that would attract a Coalition Response.

Regardless of what effect you seem to think this will have, the Coalition isn't going to start targeting Diblokambina from nowhere. Now, if it were some real Syrian Troops and Armour, then they would be entering the Highway of Death as the A-10s gather to pick them off one by one like vultures.

Syrian State TV can say whatever it likes, but those Toyotas are not Syrian Military.

Afrin is still under Kurdish Jurisdiction and the Coalition plans to keep it that way whether the pro Syrian rebels like it or not. Afrin hasn't fallen to Turkish Forces at all.

I still want to know whether the Toyota SR5 is any good! :lol:

Each and every assesment on the Syrian issue made by General WeWe has been disastrously wrong. Nothing unusual in that since he has been wrong on all other issues, including the election of his now ...hero Donald Trump whom he called an idiot only to retract this subsequently on falling in love with Don.

Paphitis you are hallucinating mate, you give the impression that YOU are somewhat involved in the on going war.
You are NOT . You seat behind a computer and spout a load of shit.
If I offended you General, then Im....glad !!

I drive one, and I am not a construction worker but mine has a cabin on the back making it more like a normal 4WD and it is the ONLY vehicle to drive here in Cyprus. The road tax at around Eu130, is far less than the Pajero but it is a much more practical vehicle.

We came here with a Jaguar, a wonderful car but not practical in Cyprus ..... is it Milti? :wink: :D
