It might be useful to think first before forwarding such YPG nonsense!

ISIS and HTS are attacking the Kurds in Afrin?

ISIS and HTS are pretty busy on other fronts! Actually they are currently killing each other in South Idlib! Check their website, check other news, check the pro-Turkish news - everyone will confirm this.

No serious source has ever claimed that ISIS and HTS are participating in the Turkish attack on Afrin.

Why should they?

To support the Turkish army? But Turkey has a) expelled ISIS via their Operation Euphrates Shield and b) has signed the Astana agreement which calls for the annihilation of HTS. So why on earth should they help Turkey?!

As Trotsky once said: Even slander should have some logic!

And, by the way, a group like the Jaysh al Thuwar which is - as part of the SDF - officially financed and supported by the US is not the most serious source.

Jaysh al Thuwar (Army of Revolutionaries) is a predominantly Arab force that is 
part of the Syrian Democratic Forces, along with the predominantly Kurdish 
YPG/YPJ and other groups.

Jaysh al Thuwar was formed in 2015 by survivors of the Syrian Revolutionaries 
Front and other Free Syrian Army-aligned groups in northern Syria that were 
attacked by Jabhat al Nusra.

Jaysh al Thuwar is helping to defend Afrin against the invasion by the Turkish army and 
some of its proxies that use the name "Free Syrian Army".  Jaysh al Thuwar 
rejects the right of the Turkish-backed forces to use this name.

"The forces gathered under the Jaysh Al Thuwar (“Army of Revolutionaries”) umbrella 
say they are the true FSA and they have come together for the Syrian revolution, while 
those who attack Afrin are ISIS, Hayat Tahrir Al Sham (formerly Al Nusra)..."

“Turkey wanted to make us fight against Kurds. They formed the group called the 
Euphrates Shield. We were there at first, but we left when the Nusra people arrived. 
The top level Nusra members in Idlib are all in Turkey now. They all say they are 
FSA, but that is not true. "
