This is what happens when your front line troops mainly consist of street gangs with military weapons who are only fighting for plunder and money.They do not want a ‘heroes funeral’ , they want to spend their money and then steal more until they die a natural death.

Its the same with the US coalition of Terror as well.

The quagmire begins… And if I’m not wrong, Turkey has elections this year.
Very bad calculation : YPG have became very rugged in combat while purges in Turkish army are nowhere near to be replaced by efficient brasses…
