Special Forces appeared in Kurdish formations
Fighters of the US Special Operations Forces in Syria, 2016 year

A special unit called YAT ("Yekineyen Anti-Terror"), it has several hundred people.

The first reports of Kurdish special forces appeared in March of this year, during the fighting for the city of Tabka. According to eyewitness accounts, “the YAT fighters wore the“ digital ”camouflage of American marines, lightweight Ops-Core helmets, and were equipped with personal protective equipment.”

According to the information, the cost of equipment of one fighter is estimated at $ 8 thousand, "it allows you to keep in touch with each other and fight against the IG (grouping is prohibited in the Russian Federation) during night operations."

Thus, the equipment includes the latest-generation AN / PVS 7b night-vision goggles, as well as the modified M4 automatic rifle equipped with a plastic magazine, an EOTech collimator sight, an AN / PEQ-2 laser pointer and a Surefire flashlight, writes the publication.

Many analysts have expressed concern that the equipment of the American special forces could get into the Kurdish organization of the PKK, which will cause Turkey to respond, which will lead to an escalation of the conflict.

      maybe it’s not Kurds, but Americans mowing down under the Kurds. And it becomes clear why, almost immediately, "these Kurds" gave the green corridor of the IG to exit from Raqqa towards Palmyra))))

        It is possible, or the American Kurds is an old feature of the mattresses it was used in Kosovo, they brought the American Albanians to the weather and did it.

    "It allows you to keep in touch with each other and fight against the IG

    fight!? so far have become famous - to negotiate. And with single rollers of destroyed carts trying to break into controlled settlements, they won’t win the war.

    Extremely loving region, um. Everyone loves each other, even through camouflage.
    Dress, don’t dress, and the Kurds at least need autonomy, the state is generally good for EVERYTHING, except for the Qatari and Saudi dwellers. Greetings from colonialism, what would it mean to them, the stinky Westerners. The process has already begun, or else there will be. Not gloating, no, of course - but a fact.

    The special unit is called YAT ("Yekineyen Anti-Terror

    Wow, they didn’t even try to rehabilitate the 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta.
    Naive, they decided that after changing the name "swim the drift!"

    that the equipment of the American special forces can get into the Kurdish organization of the PKK

    Rather, the IGs with which YPG have learned to negotiate well, or will be sold through an online store (follow the announcements). Therefore, the Turks should not worry.

    I would like to understand the goals and objectives of this Yekineyen Anti-Terror Special Forces. In fact, now there is a war and we need trained specialists in terms of combat use, and not units trained to storm

    Kurds fight well, but politically crazy for the whole
    the head. Recently they were asked (the leaders of the Syrian Kurds): "are you going to
    to proclaim your state in the future? "
    He says: "necessarily, and with access to the Mediterranean Sea."
    Correspondent ofigel: "there - on the road - Idlib, Latakia ...?" belay
    That: "nothing, break through." wassat

      As far as I understand, there is no general government among the Kurds, and are the goals different for everyone? Even the Kurds of Syria and Turkey are fighting for different goals?
