Ah yes, “civillians” with an artillery truck firing blindly as a regular civillian does. Jokes aside is it not a violation of the Geneva conevtion for a militant to not be sporting identifying clothing and badges?

US propaganda video against Turkey...
So Turkey does not accept US demands... So when they demand from u, it must be done. Otherwise u are bad man...
US propaganda is really strong but eventually truth is stronger... Sooner or later people will realise the difference between reality and US propaganda.
