Turkey have sent its troops across the Syrian border and advanced 700 meters towards Aleppo, increasing chances of a war with Russia.
Russia have previously pledged todefend Kurdish militia in Syria in the event of a Turkish invasion, and so the military advancement by Turkish soldiers into Syria may trigger a larger war between the two countries.
“Russia will respond to the invasion. It goes about not only the Kurds – Russia will defend the territorial integrity of Syria,” the head of the Syrian Kurdistan in Moscow, Rodi Osman, told Bloomberg back in February.
The Al Mayadeen TV Channel reported that the Turkish soldiers set a checkpoint near the city of Afrin. It is situated to the north-west of the Aleppo province. It is noted that Afrin’s population consists of the Kurds mainly.
As for now the mass media possesses no official confirmation of the data.
Previously the Turkish Armed Forces delivered artillery fire against the military airfield of Minnekh, which is situated to the north of the Syrian Aleppo province.
Beside that, the Turkish Armed Forcesattacked one of the cities in the same province. According to witnesses, the shells hit civil homes. Before that, the Turks struck Kurds near the city of Azaz in the north of Syria.
The shells hit an airbase the Kurdish People’s Protection Units had retaken from the ISIS.
