トルコと米の対立 ラブロフの動きを世界中が注目している

Turkish planes bomb Syrian Kurdish targets as Ankara-backed rebels enter Afrin
Turkish aircraft have bombed Kurdish targets in Syria's Afrin, according to the Turkish prime minister. Turkish-backed Syrian opposition fighters have also entered the Kurdish enclave, state media reported.

“TSK (Turkish Armed Forces) has started airborne operations,” Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said at a party congress on Saturday, as quoted by Hurriyet. Yildirim said eight F-16 aircraft were involved in the aerial sortie.

“As of this moment our brave Armed Forces have started the aerial offensive to eliminate the PYD and PKK and [Islamic State] elements in Afrin,” Yildirim said.

Turkey’s General Staff has officially declared the start of the operation, dubbing it ‘Operation Olive Branch,’ according to a statement cited by Turkish newspaper Sol.

AP journalists at the Turkish border reported seeing at least five jets heading toward Afrin. Also sighted was a convoy of buses, believed to be carrying Syrian opposition fighters, and trucks mounted with machine guns.

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have meanwhile accused Turkey of using cross-border shelling as a false pretext to launch an offensive into Syria, according to Reuters. The SDF, an alliance of Kurdish and Arab militias fighting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS), said it will have no choice but to defend itself if attacked. The alliance controls areas in Syria’s east and north.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry said Moscow is closely following the situation, citing concerns over recent developments in the area. The ministry’s statement called on all sides in the conflict to exercise restraint.

It comes after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said earlier on Saturday that Ankara had “de facto” begun its operation against Kurdish forces in Afrin. He said the operation would be “followed by Manbij,” referring to the Kurdish-controlled town in northern Syria.

US trying to create alternative govt on Syrian land – Lavrov on Afrin crisis
The US is working to create alternative government systems on Syrian territory which goes against its promises to respect the country’s territorial integrity, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said.

Responding to a question posed by RT’s Caleb Maupin at Friday's briefing at UN Headquarters in New York, Lavrov commented on America's role in the crisis in northern Syria, which escalated into a new Turkish-Kurdish conflict after news of Washington’s plans to create a “border force” comprising of Kurds. Despite the Americans backtracking on its statement, and saying they were misunderstood, Ankara, which considers the Kurdish-dominated YPG force terrorists, said it was launching a military operation against the Syrian Kurdish enclave. Lavrov said the developments were only a part of the pattern of US policy in Syria.

“It’s a fact that US forces are seriously involved in creating alternative government bodies on vast part of the Syrian territory. And this, of course, absolutely contradicts their own obligations, which they committed to on numerous occasions, including at the UN Security Council, on maintaining the sovereignty and the territorial integrity of Syria,” Lavrov said.

Washington's inconsistency on Syria is also “quite characteristic of modern US diplomacy, including the reasons for the American presence there, and the reasons for the actions of the coalition, which they command,” Lavrov added. Russia is “concerned” by the US' actions in the country, he said, adding, that he had discussed the situation with the US Secretary of State on numerous occasions.

“Rex Tillerson told me many times that the only reason for their presence there [in Syria] is defeating Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISL). Now they have some much more long-standing plans,” Lavrov said. “We will have to take this into account and look for solutions that won’t allow the destruction of Syrian sovereignty.”

A Turkish journalist asked Lavrov about media reports that Russian forces have been withdrawn from the Afrin area. “Those reports have been refuted,” the diplomat replied.

Earlier Friday, Turkey's Defense Minister Nurettin Canikli said his country’s troops haven’t entered Afrin yet, but “the operation [against the Kurds] has actually de facto started with cross-border shelling.” The Syrian government made clear to Ankara that it considers Turkey’s military presence on its territory as a violation of its sovereignty, and warned that it will shoot down Turkish jets in Syrian airspace.

The US currently has an estimated 2,000 troops on the ground in Syria, deployed in the country without consent from Damascus. The Americans were involved in the Kurdish operation to capture the city of Raqqa from Islamic State jihadists last year. However, despite the defeat of the Islamists, Washington said it has no intention of withdrawing its forces.

Media Reports Disclose Details of Turkish Army Plans to Attack Afrin
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Turkish army will attack 150 targets of the Kurdish forces in Afrin in Aleppo province before launching ground offensives in the region, media reports said.

The Arabic-language al-Hadath news quoted the Turkish Haberturk newspaper as reporting that the Turkish army will launch heavy attacks on 150 Kurdish positions before starting the ground operations in Afrin.

It added that the Turkish intelligence forces have specified 149 Kurdish targets, including fixed positions and vehicles, from last October to January 16, 2018, reporting that the operations will take 6 days and the Turkish air force and artillery units, stationed at the borders, will participate in them.

According to the report, given the fact that the Kurds have built strongholds and ditches in 9 regions of Afrin, the Turkish forces will send special units skilled in war of attrition, if necessary, to carry out final cleansing operations in Afrin.

Meantime, the Turkish Milliyet newspaper reported that the country's joint chief of staff has adopted the marching tactic by using armored tanks which are equipped with jamming systems, after airstrikes.

A Kurdish media outlet reported on Thursday that Ankara-backed militant groups have intensified attacks on the Kurdish forces' positions in Northern Aleppo amid reports on the Turkish army's imminent operation in Afrin and Manbij regions.

The Kurdish-language Hawar news reported that the Turkish forces deployed in Sejiyeh border checkpoint targeted Kurdish forces' positions near the village of Marwaniyeh in Shi'eh area in Jajdariseh region in the town of Afrin.

In the meantime, the mortar and missile units of the Turkish army and its affiliated militant groups deployed in Qala Sam'an pounded the village of Karzileh in Shirwa region, the villages of Shadireh and Iska, nearby regions of the village of Jomleh in Shirwa, Hawar news further said.

On the other hand, forces of the Euphrates Shield targeted Kurdish forces' positions near the village of al-Mohsenli Northwest of Manbij, fueling fierce clashes between two sides.

Ankara says ‘has no option’ but to attack Syrian Kurds in Afrin, starts cross-border shelling
Ankara has no option but to carry out a military op in the Syrian enclave of Afrin, Turkey’s defense minister said. The operation has ‘de facto started’ with cross-border shelling, he added.

Turkey would continue discussing its operation in Afrin with Russia, Nurettin Canikli said on Friday in an interview with broadcaster AHaber.

The Kurdish YPG militias confirmed the Turkish minister’s announcement of the shelling in Afrin region, saying it has started around midnight and continued into Friday morning and targeted Kurdish villages.

The Turkish government considers Kurdish militias in Syria to be an extension of the militant movement, the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which is seen as a terrorist organization by Ankara.

Last week’s news that Washington was training the predominantly Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to form a 30,000-strong “border force” based in Afrin infuriated the Turks. The US has since backtracked on the announcement in an apparent attempt to defuse Turkish anger, but belligerent statements from Ankara have continued.

Meanwhile, the Syrian government warned on Thursday that it may shoot down Turkish warplanes delivering airstrikes on its territory. Damascus said its air defenses have been restored and are ready to defend the nation’s sovereignty.

Turkish Kurds protested against the planned intervention, taking to the streets in their thousands and chanting slogans like “Afrin will be your graveyard.”

As the Turkish military apparently prepare for a new operation in Syria, their engineers have reportedly completed the first phase of a security system along a wall that has been erected on the Turkey-Syria border. Spanning 20km of the border in the Afrin area, the ‘Kayi Border Security System’ features sensors and remotely controlled weapons to defend Turkey against possible trespassers, news agency Anadolu reported on Friday.

Turkey has erected a concrete wall along a large part of its 911km border with Syria in recent years, and is enhancing the structure with extra security measures in some places. The additional security is intended to deal with humans, vehicles and drones; as well as boasting underground sensors to detect tunnel diggers.
