INTERNATIONAL MILITARY REVIEW – SYRIA, FEB. 5, 2016
The Kurds are trying to close/control the border between Syria and Turkey.
I am not sure what the Kurdish long term game plan it, they want their own territory and they seem to be choosing it to be a buffer zone between Syria and Turkey, on the Syrian side of the border. It would be interesting to know what Assad/Putin think of this.
The Kurds have crossed the Euphrates at Tishrin and can advance to Manbij. Meanwhile the Tiger Force will soon be able to go after al-Bab and then advance to meet the Kurds after they take Manbij... cutting off ISIS from Turkey.
