1/ #BREAK I just spoke to my source in Kobani, NSyria, which is under fire by Turkish army. He told me something incredible:

Acc to him, 1000s of Kurds from Kobani are right now fleeing to a US military base near Lafarge cement factory, to seek US soldiers' protection.

I just spoke to a distraught US Special Forces soldier who is among the 1000 or so US troops in Syria tonight who is serving alongside the SDF Kurdish forces. It was one of the hardest phone calls I have ever taken.

"I am ashamed for the first time in my career."

This veteran US Special forces soldier has trained indigenous forces on multiple continents. He is on the frontlines tonight and said they are witnessing Turkish atrocities.

"Turkey is not doing what it agreed to. It's horrible," this military source on the ground told me.

This American soldier told me the Kurds have not left their positions guarding the ISIS prisoners. In fact "they prevented a prison break last night without us."
"They are not abandoning our side (yet)."
The Kurds are "pleading for our support." We are doing "nothing."

Troops on the ground in Syria and their commanders were "surprised" by the decision Sunday night.
Of the President's decision: "He doesn't understand the problem. He doesn't understand the repercussions of this. Erdogan is an Islamist, not a level headed actor."

The #SDF has launched strong Retaliatory attacks against #Turkey and targeting locations inside Turkish Territory.
We now have basically a war occuring between an autonomous Regional Government & Turkey.
#Syria's regime has called it a violation of there territory.

What the Turkish army and its allies are doing there is a massacre. The US should be ashamed

#North_Press reporter citing official medical sources: Legirin Hospital in Tal Tamr receives 8 deaths and 46 injuries on Saturday, as a result of the #Turkish bombardment on areas in Ras al-Ain / Sere-Kaniye and its countryside.

#BREAKING Pro-Turkey rebels 'execute' nine civilians in Syria, monitor says

The #SDC/#SDF statement on #Turkey-backed #NSA summarily executing Gen-Sec of Future #Syria Party seems completely plausible in light of emerging video evidence, albeit circumstancial.
Here they are executing #SDF (calling them #PKK) fighters on in an ambush checkpoint

In another video, they boast about killing another #SDF fighter who tried to escape the ambush. The bullet-riddled 4x4 looks up-armoured, the kind used by SDF/SDC commanders and authority figures.

> It's pretty clear that Turkey does not even want to capture any high-value assets they label as PKK but to kill 'em all.

Even as counter-insurgency strategy that's a really bad one.
