US builds up forces in northern Syria, Kurds say ‘Coalition is here for Turks’ (VIDEO)

– US builds up forces in northern Syria, Kurds say ‘Coalition is here for Turks’ (VIDEO):

The US has apparently sent more troops to the Kurdish-held regions of northern Syria and has established new outposts in the area. Local Kurdish militias believe the Americans have come to help them fend off a Turkish offensive.

“This base is of the [US-led] Coalition… It was established to counterattack the Turkish threat. The Coalition is here for the Turks,” one Kurdish fighter, identified as the “Sheikh of the Mountain,” told Ruptly video news agency. He was speaking about one of the US outposts set up not far from the northern Syrian city of Manbij, which is now controlled by the US-backed Kurdish militias. Earlier, the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan reiterated that Ankara plans to target Manbij in its operation against the Kurds in northern Syria.

Footage recorded by Ruptly shows an outpost with a perimeter of large sand barriers and US flags waving. The fortified position was reportedly established on the frontline zone west of Manbij, not far from the Sajur River, which forms the border between the areas held by the Kurds and the pro-Turkish forces in northern Syria.

Turkey Threatens Greece – Does Erdogan Want To Revive The Ottoman Empire?

As predicted…

Google translation:

Turkey threatens Greece – Will Erdogan revive the Ottoman Empire?:

The conflict over sovereignty over some islands in the Aegean is becoming more acute. Erdogan threatens his neighbor Greece. Tricky! Both are NATO members. The causes of the conflict are 100 years old and some emotions have causes that are even older. But besides there are other causes.

More recently, Turkey’s provocations against Greece are increasing. Violations of Greek airspace, the Turkish Air Force, a rammed patrol boat, a drillship blocked by Turkish warships and two Greek border guards arrested are clear signs of a policy aimed at revising the borderline in the Aegean Sea.

Erdogan: Iraq’s Sinjar & Syria’s Tal Rifaat next targets of Turkish military operation

Iraq’s Sinjar & Syria’s Tal Rifaat next targets of Turkish military op – Erdogan:

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has announced the launch of a new military operation against Kurdish militants in Iraqi Sinjar. He also vowed to take over the Kurdish-controlled town of Tal Rifaat in northern Aleppo, Syria.

“We’ve eliminated 3,747 terrorists [in Syria’s Afrin],” Erdogan said on Sunday, adding that Ankara has now begun an operation against the Kurdish militants in Iraq’s Sinjar.

“Remember, I told you we’d get them. They will flee, we will chase; the work will not end with Afrin. The PKK went to Sinjar – ‘We’ll go there as well,’ I said. Operations there began,” the president declared.

Ankara’s operation ‘Olive Branch,’ targeting Kurdish militias in Syria’s Afrin region, has nearly realized its goals, according to Erdogan. “We will take control of the Tal Rifaat town shortly and thus achieve the goals of the operation,” he said. Tal Rifaat is the last stronghold in the Afrin region held by the Kurdish militias.

Erdogan has insisted that Turkey’s military activities in neighboring countries targeted “terrorists” exclusively and did not constitute an invasion.
