Syrian Fighters Enter Afrin; Turkey Retaliates With Immediate Bombardment Sending Turkish Lira, Stocks Tumbling

As we reported yesterday, in a surprising twist in the ongoing Syrian proxy war, YPG Kurdish fighters in north-western Syria - who are backed by the US - had struck a deal with the Russia-backed Assad regime for Syrian forces to enter the Afrin region and repel a Turkish offensive which began last month.

Badran Jia Kurd, an advisor to the Kurdish-led administration in northern Syria told Reuters that Syrian troops will deploy along several border positions and could enter the region within the next two days: "we can cooperate with any side that lends us a helping hand in light of the barbaric crimes and the international silence," Jia Kurd said.

We didn't have long to wait for this escalation to unfold, and moments ago a convoy of fighters waving Syrian flags entered the northern Kurdish-held region of Afrin, which Turkey is targeting in a cross-border operation, according to footage on Syrian state TV shows.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So give me a moment to get my head around this; the Syrian Army is now assisting the US-supported Kurds in fending off a Turkish invasion of Afrin?!?

IF a country's leadership is intellectually gifted, they will chose their battles, and enemies, and scenarios for winning very carefully; Erdogan, in his unhinged bloodlust against even the non-militant Kurds, thought such a scenario as the US supported Kurds being assisted by the Syrian Army could never happen.

In war, sometimes, you need to consider, far ahead of actual events, what you will do if the unthinkable actually happens, which it did in this case.
