I have every reason to believe that Turkey knows the real numbers of weapons etc., supplied to the PKK/YPG
"Ankara revealed that the Washington has provided 1,285 truckloads of weapons and ammunition to the PKK's Syrian armed wing, the People's Protection Units (YPG) while they are claiming that only 60 trucks of arms support was sent to the YPG.Interesting that the US showed documents to Turkish officials regarding 60 trucks, which Turkey countered with images taken..
Defense Minister Nurettin Canikli refuted the statements of his American counterpart James Mattis regarding the number of trucks carrying military equipment sent to YPG by the U.S. During a face-to-face meeting between Mattis and Canikli on Aug. 23, the Turkish side provided aerial photographs which indicate that the number of trucks is far higher than claimed.
Diplomatic sources said that the recent meeting held in Ankara on Aug. 23 between Turkish and U.S. defense ministers was a tense one in which Canikli and Mattis discussed the Pentagon's military assistance provided to the PKK-affiliated YPG"
Canikli stated that according to Ankara's calculations that are based on documents that were provided by the U.S., the YPG terrorist group is likely to have received 60 trucks of weapon and ammunition. However, the aerial photographs taken by Turkey, as well as data gathered from field intelligence reveals that the number of trucks sent to the YPG is more than 1,285.
Turkey's immediate falsification (showing the US to be a liar) of the numbers claimed by the U.S with documented evidence caused consternation in the American side. In order to provide an explanation regarding the number of trucks, Mattis stated that those trucks were not only sent to the YPG but also to U.S. soldiers in Iraq and Syria.
The Turkish side has responded by saying that the 1,200 trucks of weapons are enough to adequately equip at least 60,000 soldiers, adding that as far as it is known, there are not American soldiers of this number in Syria and Northern Iraq, again refuting the U.S. secretary of defense.Washington supplied an army- In a previous post I covered the fact that this indeed was the goal. To turn the PKK/YPG into an occupying force in annexed Syrian and most probably Iraqi territory.
Coincidentally, but, not likely, immediately preceding this meeting we recall the US make a completely NON-CREDIBLE claim regarding gun fire exchange between Turkish backed rebels and American forces who are stationed in, but have ZERO business, being in Syria !
Coincidentally, this mass weapons shipment also coincides with David Ignatius selling the occupation of Syria.
