Erdogan accuses allies of sending ‘thousands of planeloads’ and ‘truckloads of arms’ to Kurds

RT | January 21, 2018

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has turned on Ankara’s allies, insinuating that the US in particular has been providing massive military support to Kurdish YPG in Syria.

In a speech to his ruling AK Party Erdogan said that ‘some allies’ of Turkey had provided the YPG Syrian Kurdish militia with 2,000 planeloads and 5,000 truckloads of weapons.

“Now, apart from 5,000 trucks, there are weapons and ammunition from around 2,000 planes.” the Turkish leader said. He also accused Ankara’s allies of dishonesty when they say that they do not provide weapons for “terrorists,” referring to Kurdish-linked YPG forces.

The president also vowed to hand over Afrin to its “real owners,” explaining that he aims to return 3.5 million refugees back to Syria from Turkey as soon as possible.

This weekend, Turkey began operation ‘Olive Branch’ against Kurdish forces in Afrin, deploying jets and land forces.

  1. “Erdogan said that ‘some allies’ of Turkey had provided the YPG Syrian Kurdish militia with 2,000 planeloads and 5,000 truckloads of weapons”.

    I doubt that Mr Erdogan is naïve enough to think that U.S. Assurances about not supplying “Terrorists” with weapons is the truth. Who else could provide “2000 plane loads, and 5000 trucks full of weapons” to the Kurds? The Kurds will be Israel’s “Trojan Horse” in Syria.
    The USA will do ANYTHING that Israel wants, and if that means supplying ‘Terrorists’ and arming them to the teeth,(and paying for it all) then that is exactly what the USA will do.
    The USA takes its orders from Tel Aviv(and soon to be, Jerusalem).

  2. The mercurial Erdogan strikes again (and is undoubtedly on point here). Can’t figure the guy out — I was effusive in praise and admiration for him back around Mavi Marmara 2010 vintage; then he went off the wall in working against Syria and its President Assad during the latter’s defense of his sovereign country. What’s going on?
