The infighting between the various terrorist groups and mercenary collectives of DAESH will continue to be more violent and pervasive as the realization that the US isn't going to be able to push them into a victory over the democratically elected government and the majority of the Syrian population. The reality is that by the time the majority of Syrians get vaccinated, most of those who preferred to be bussed to the 'rebel territory' rather than accept amnesty as the various pockets the terrorists controlled were liberated will cheer loudly as the Syrian army and volunteer militias start liberating this last 'rebel stronghold

Well stated.

Agreed. Bombing civilian targets sickening and senseless. Why do certain countries constantly do it?

Let's see, the missiles came from Syrian controlled territory but Turkey blames the YPG. YPG at most has some Tow (max range 3750m, effective range 3000m, requires operator to see target and manually guide missile using a long wire connected to the back of the missile) and Javelin (effective range 2500 m)anti-tank missiles that do not have anything close to the range necessary to fly from Tel Rifat to Afrin. The distance from Tel Rifat to Afrin is closer to 24 km, well beyond the range of anything in the YPG arsenal.

The more likely scenario are Russian and Iranian backed Shiite militias advancing on Afrin to push out Turkish forces and block the YPG. The missiles were in all likelihood Russian or Iranian.

Turkey invaded Syria a clear violation of the UN charter. Sanctions need to be imposed on Turkey and their troops withdrawn to their own country.
