Syrian Service Members Wounded In Turkish Drone Strike On Northern Aleppo

File image. On February 23, two service members of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) were wounded in the northern countryside of Aleppo as a result of a Turkish drone strike. The strike targeted a joint post of the SAA and the Manbij Military Council (MMC), a key faction of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). The post in question is located in the outskirts of the village of al-Jat to the northeast of the town of Manbij. Syrian opposition sources claimed that four fighters of the MMC were also killed in the strike. However, this is yet to be confirmed. The SAA maintains a network of positions around SDF-held Manbij to keep the Turkish military and its proxies away from the town. The Russian Military Police is also present in the area. A day earlier, a Turkish combat drone struck positions of MMC near the villages of Mahsanli and Arab to the north of Manbij. However, no casualties were reported. Turkish forces and the SDF has been exchanging blows in northern and northeastern Syria for around a month now. A military confrontation between the two sides may breakout soon. Last year, several reports talked about Turkish

Signs that Today Is History’s Turning-Point

Illustrative Image Written by Eric Zuesse Apparently, today, 15 February 2022, is the day when U.S. hegemony — the global American empire, which started on 25 July 1945 when the Cold War did — has effectively ended, and when the global balance-of-power worldwide has switched, from being in the United States and its European military alliance NATO (the collective “The West”), against Russia; to its being, instead, in Asia (the collective “The East”), in the not-long-distant future. The immediate preliminary for this turning-point happening today was, Nick Parker, of Jeff Bezos’s Washington Post, and Jerome Starkey, of Rupert Murdoch’s The Sun, headlining, in Mr. Murdoch’s Australian News.Com website, “Russia to attack Ukraine at any moment” and announcing that “Vladimir Putin is likely to strike without warning — possibly tomorrow, The US Sun reports.” The first sign of it actually happening today is that (also on February 15th) Russia’s RT News bannered “‘West has been destroyed without a shot fired’ – Russia: The Russian Foreign Ministry has announced February 15 as ‘the day Western propaganda failed’”, and opened: With Russia announcing that its troops are pulling back following the completion of exercises near the border with Ukraine, Moscow has insisted that

Ukrainian ripples: Turkey and Israel eye extended cooperation in Central Asia

by James M. Dorsey A recent dinner in Washington suggests that a seemingly forthcoming visit to Turkey by Israeli President Isaac Herzog could be about more than putting an end to strained relations between the two erstwhile allies. Engineered by an influential American Jewish leader, Malcolm Hoenlein, vice-chair of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, the dinner was attended by the Washington ambassadors of Israel, Turkey, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan and hosted by the envoy of Azerbaijan. It was designed to find a pathway to closer economic and security cooperation between Israel and the Turkic countries, which have diplomatic relations with the Jewish state. The significance of the dinner lies not only in the fact that it occurred in advance of Mr. Herzog’s visit. The ambassadors met as the Ukraine crisis threatened to force Turkey to choose between NATO and Russia. Moreover, Turkey, Azerbaijan, and Central Asian states attempted three months earlier to blow new life into their Cooperation Council of Turkic Speaking States. A NATO member with close ties to Russia that has bought a Russian anti-missile system, Turkey has backed Ukraine, tightened military cooperation with the embattled East European state, and condemned Russia’s occupation in

Turkey demands 11 years behind bars for senior journalist

A Turkish prosecutor's office demanded 11 years in jail for a prominent journalist on charges of insulting President Tayyip Erdogan and two ministers in his cabinet, Turkish news agencies reported on Friday and Reuters reports. Last month, a court ordered Sedef Kabas, a 52-year-old television journalist who mainly covers Turkish politics, to be jailed pending trial on a charge of insulting Erdogan, which carries a jail sentence of between one and four years. The prosecutor also asked Kabas to be charged with insulting Interior Minister, Suleyman Soylu and Transportation Minister, Adil Karaismailoglu, for a combined jail term of 11 years. Kabas was jailed, pending trial, over a proverb she cited during a political discussion on opposition TV, Channel Tele 1, […]

Turkey threatens to block international news outlets in media crackdown

Turkey's media and telecom regulator gave three international news agencies 72 hours to secure an operating licence on Wednesday. The Radio and Television Supreme Council (RTUK) announced that German public broadcaster – Deutsche Welle, US broadcaster – Voice of America and France-based network – Euronews, would have their content blocked unless they obtain a licence. The decision reportedly marks the first time RTUK has used its powers to regulate online news platforms. It comes after the Turkish parliament revised its media regulations in 2019, giving RTUK authority to monitor any online news websites. Journalist, opposition lawmaker and RTUK board member, Illhan Tasci, voted against the decision, saying it was a further step to silence reporting. 1- RTÜK ilk kez uluslararası […]

Somali graduates of Turkish scholarship program give back to their country

Since Turkiye and Somalia established their special relationship in 2011, thousands of Somalis have benefited from Turkiye's scholarship program, realising their dream of obtaining a degree, Anadolu News Agency reports.

Azerbaijan has biggest role to repair Turkey-Israel relations, report says

Azerbaijan has the biggest role to repair Turkey-Israel relations, as Baku becomes a common friend or a common denominator between Turkey and Israel, according to Al Zaytouna Centre's report in Lebanon. According to the report, Lebanon-based think tank, Al Zaytouna Centre, says the support of Israel and Turkey for Azerbaijan against Armenia, and their participation in arming it, especially with drones, shows how three countries can be on the same ground. The report says that the two sides agree to support Azerbaijan in confronting Iran. On the sidelines of the dispute, tension and threats that prevailed between Tehran and Baku, Turkey clearly sided with Baku, which annoyed Tehran. “The exacerbation of tension between Iran and Azerbaijan could remove some obstacles […]

Turkiye calls on Greece to demilitarise Eastern Aegean islands

Citing Turkiye's letters to the UN on Eastern Aegean islands classified as demilitarised under long-standing international treaties, the nation's Foreign Minister on Thursday said Ankara is closely monitoring the situation, Anadolu News Agency reports. Saying that the islands were placed under Greek sovereignty as part of the 1923 Treaty of Lausanne and the 1947 Paris Peace Treaties on the condition of demilitarisation, Mevlut Cavusoglu said in a televised interview that Greece has been violating this condition for decades, since the 1960s. Last July, Turkiye's UN Ambassador, Feridun Siniroglu, wrote a letter to UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, decrying Greece's “continuous flagrant violations” in the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas, adding that Greece has run afoul of its “solemn treaty obligations” in those […]

Turkey to unveil new economic plan amid currency crisis

Treasury and Finance Minister, Nureddin Nebati, on Saturday, will announce new economic measures amid currency crisis, Anadolu News Agency reports.

Top company executives, the heads of banks and business group representatives are set to attend the event on Saturday. On the other hand, Nebati, this week, pitched Turkey's new economic policy in London.

Turkey: opposition leader refuses to pay power bills in protest at price hikes

Turkey's main opposition leader has said that he will not pay his power bills until President Recep Tayyip Erdogan withdraws recent price rises, Reuters has reported. The president's ruling party slammed the move on Thursday as a provocation amid growing discontent over surging inflation. In January, inflation in Turkey jumped to nearly 50 per cent after a currency crash late last year triggered by Erdogan's unorthodox low interest rate policy, raising the cost of living for Turks already struggling to make ends meet. In response, the government has raised the minimum wage by 50 per cent, but also increased the prices of gas, power, petrol and road tolls to account for import price volatility. “I will not pay any of […]
