PKK/PYD dealt a severe blow in southern Jarabulus

As the Euphrates Shield operation in northern Syria enters its sixth day, Jarabulus is cleared from PKK/PYD terrorists; but they are starting to abduct civilians in Manbij to use them as 'human shields' against Turkey-backed Free Syrian Army soldiers

Editor / Internet Yeni Şafak
The Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK)-affiliated Democratic Union Party (PYD) terrorists have been dealt a severe blow south of Jarabulus city, at the end of the fifth day of the Euphrates Shield operation conducted by the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) aiming to clear the terrorist elements from the northern Syrian city of Jarabulus.

All PKK/PYD terrorists were cleared from Jarabulus by Turkey-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) soldiers, as the security forces have been clearing the tapped mines in the region.



Up to 16 villages cleared of terrorists


As many as 16 villages have already been rescued from U.S.-supported PKK/PYD; including Tahtani, Belveren, Fovkani, Tireyhim, Tel Şehir, Ayn Beyda, Çamil, Mizale, Hilvaniyye, Köse, Amarna, Yusufbey, Bir Kuse and Dabis.

But now, the PKK/PYD terrorists started to prevent the civilians from reaching the safe zones, in order to use them as 'human shields' against FSA soldiers in northern Manbij.



At least 50 people are missing after the PKK/PYD conducted raids on four villages, including Amarne village located south of Jarabulus.

Sources speaking to Turkish daily Yeni Şafak newspaper said that people from seven families have been missing for a while, adding that these missing people can be introduced to be killed in the Turkish pounding.



PKK/PYD not vacating west of the Euphrates

Meanwhile, despite the U.S. assurance and Turkish officials' repeated warnings to the PKK/PYD to vacate the area west of the Euphrates; the terrorist group is not retreating to the east of the Euphrates and continues its attempts to unite Kobane and Afrin by trying to reach Gandura village in the direction of Çobanbey.



Turkey's military said 25 Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK)-affiliated People's Protection Units (YPG) terrorists were “neutralized" in northern Syria in an airstrike on Sunday.

In a statement, the Turkish Armed Forces said the air campaign was carried out against terrorist groups which had attacked Turkish soldiers supporting a FSA operation in Jarabulus.



Pro-PKK propaganda follows blow

Intense pro-PKK propaganda have been spread following Turkey's move, which killed 25 terrorists on Sunday in northern Syria as a part of the Euphrates Shield operation.

After terrorists were killed by the Turkish army, some international news agencies such as Reuters, AP along with Sputnik news website and many Turkish media claimed that the civilians were killed in the operation.



In fact, the terrorists captured by FSA soldiers were discovered to be PKK members with PKK IDs and clothing with photos of PKK Leader Abdullah Öcalan.

US, NATO weapons found on terrorists

Another surprising point was the origin of the weapons that were found on the PKK/PYD terrorists captured by the FSA soldiers in Jarabulus. The weapons were from the U.S. and NATO.

It remains unknown how the US and NATO weapons reached the terrorists.



'SDG' to justify PKK/PYD

Also, recently it was discovered that Syrian Democratic Forces (SDG) was a 'front group' to justify PKK/PYD by fabricating seven different groups such as Syriac Military Council, Euphrates Volcano, Liwa Thuwar al-Raqqa, Shams al-Shamal, Liwa Al-Selcuki, Al Jazeera Brigades and Al-Sanadid Forces.



Al-Sanadid Forces, one of the groups composing SDG, is known to be formed by the sub groups which fought for the Assad regime for four years, while Liwa Al-Selcuki doesn't contain any Turkmen fighters despite being introduced as the representative of the Turkmen groups.

Also, the two top PKK terrorists, Redur Khalil and Thalal Sulo, are the decision makers of the SDG.

Sixth day of operation

The Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) and air forces of the U.S.-led anti-Daesh coalition initiated the operation named "Euphrates Shield" against the terror group on Wednesday.

The operation continues on its sixth day as more villages are retaken from Daesh and the PYD.
