I guess Turkey feels the Kurdish women who are fighting for their rights and land are in the way of their covetousness over Syria. Are they trying to appease paid for terrorists because they think if they get killed by a woman they are going to hell?
Syria has been promoted to be anti-women, anti-democratic but here they are actually going all out to defend these Kurdish women.
Syria Warns Will Try to Shoot Down Turkish Jets If They Attack Kurds in Syria's Borders
They may be in open rebellion against Damascus but that doesn't mean foreign powers get to bomb them at will -- or violate Syria's airspace doing it

The Syrian government warned Turkey against launching a bombing campaign in the Syrian province of Afrin, saying its air defenses may be used. Ankara had threatened airstrikes against Afrin-based Kurdish militias.
We warn the Turkish leadership that if they initiate combat operations in the Afrin area, that will be considered an act of aggression by the Turkish Army,” Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Meqdad said in a statement reported by state media.
"The Syrian air defenses have restored their full force and they are ready to destroy Turkish aviation targets in Syrian Arab Republic skies," it added.
The statement comes after Turkish officials threatened to attack Kurdish militias in the area to prevent the creation of a US-backed “border force” based in the Afrin area in northwest Syria. Washington has since tried to downplay the planned 30,000-strong force, which Ankara branded a “terror army.”
Previously, the Turkish military operation in Syria in 2016-17 went virtually unopposed by the Syrian Army. The operation targeted both Kurdish militias and fighters of the jihadist group Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS).
