Turkey and Russia, as well as Russian-backed Syrian regime forces, appear to have increased attacks in Syria
I want to share this news I read online that in the recent days Turkey and Russia appear to have increased attacks in Syria. According to reports, Turkey is hammering Kurdish positions near Ain Issa with the first airstrikes in months. It appears the end goal is mostly to punish Syrians, but not to achieve much else since Turkey, Russia and Iran all work together in Syria. Turkey often seeks to bombard Kurds every time its ruling AK Party wants more votes at home. Usually Turkey claims to be fighting “terrorists” but there is no evidence of any “terrorism” against Turkey from Syria. Turkey generally doesn’t mind if Russia or the Syrian regime kill Syrians in Idlib, just as long as Turkey has free rein to then attack Kurds near Tel Rifat or Ain Issa.
