Situation in Syria

Nearly 300 terrorists surrendered to the SDF in Rakka, 15 thousands of PKK fighters went as reinforcements to Iraqi Kurdistan, reports FAN with reference to Syrian sources.




The artillery of the Syrian Arab Army (CAA) continued to fire at the deployment zones of militants of the radical opposition in the Beit Jeann (Damascus) area. In turn, the radicals fired at Bab Sharqi, Al-Shagur and Al-Abbasin during the day. As a result of the shelling, two civilians in the Syrian capital were killed and nine others were injured.

A convoy of vehicles with Turkish soldiers arrived at Sheikh Barakat Mountain (Aleppo Province), which is in close proximity to the Kurdish city of Afrin. The day before, a Turkish reconnaissance drone was shot down over Afrin. In addition, Ankara announced the start of deployment of checkpoints in Aleppo border areas with Idlib province.

Fights between government troops and terrorists of the IG group (banned in the Russian Federation) east of the Euphrates River (Deir ez-Zor province) have been recorded. The Syrian Arab army is advancing in the region under the guise of the RF AU. Russian planes struck a series of strikes against the deployment zones of terrorists in the areas of the settlements of Al-Falkani, Al-Muhasan, and Al-Bulil in the south-east of the province. Later it became known that the Syrian military was able to free Al-Salkhia from the Islamists on the eastern bank of the Euphrates.

The confrontation between the Syrian army and the militants of the radical opposition continued in the administrative center of Dar'a province. The fighting was also recorded in the east of the region.

The Turkish army continued to push forces into Idlib province. In the north of the region, hostilities were recorded between the Turkish army and the Kurdish militias. The SDF conducted artillery shelling of positions of the Turkish army and Ankara-controlled militants near the Atma settlement.

In Raqqa, intense fighting resumed between the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and ISIS terrorists who refused to leave the former unofficial capital of the “Caliphate”. In the middle of the day it became known that the fighters of the Kurdish militia had cleared the Al-Mansur area from militants. A Twitter source (@Khaled_qahtan) reported that the SDF militias are actively propagating, urging residents of the liberated neighborhoods to take off their black clothes. As a result, the 275 IG terrorists surrendered to the Syrian Democratic Forces. About 3 thousand of civilians managed to withdraw from the combat zone.

The Russian Aerospace Forces continued to bomb the fortifications of IG terrorists in the province of Hama, and also to help repel radical attacks on the position of the Syrian Arab army. Strikes are carried out in the area of ​​the settlement of Abu Dali.

The command of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) has declared its readiness to help Peshmerga fighters in battles against the Iraqi government army for the independence of Kurdistan. One of the sources posted a video on Instagram, in which reinforcements from more than 15-ti thousand PKK fighters are sent to Iraq.

      As I understand it, this means that we have already agreed on the status of the Kurdish territories in Syria.

        Stream Clashes in Kirkuk.
        The most striking illustration confirms that the Peshmerga has extremely low combat readiness. Running around, noise and nothing more. Apparently all the Peshmerga fighters are now giving interviews, but no one is at the positions.

        Around 02:30, Iraqi forces launched an offensive from two fronts ... south of Kirkuk, at the entrance to the city, “courageous Kurdish warriors” fled. Iraqi forces, without resistance, took control of much of Kirkuk.
        It is reported that part of the Kurdish troops associated with Talabani retreated from the Tal Ward region. This is linked to the influence of Iran and General Suleymani, who convinced some of the Kurds to retreat from their positions. There is a slight confusion among the Kurds. Governor Kirkuk immediately changed security.
        Kurds scolded Talabani troops, which had fallen off the front line along with armored vehicles. In fact, Talabani’s withdrawal allowed the Iraqi army to advance quite easily to K1 and the Northern Oil Company complex.

        No, the Turks are drawn into a very problematic mountainous place, clashes between the SAA and the Kurds have already begun, as a consequence of the joint destruction of the Daishaks. Now the SAA and the Kurds are forced to make peace, the Shiites will expel the Kurds from Kirkuk, and the whole economy will fall on the Turks on a wide front. The Turks and I have many fronts on the Black Sea, where they did not like the Crimea, they considered it theirs and belonging to Ukraine led to the fact that now it is unrealistic. There is a Caucasian front where our outpost Armenia cuts the Turkic world. All this says that the shift in the south will weaken Turkey in the remaining sections of the confrontation.

          the Turks should not have any particular problems in the idlib - in the western part and in northern latakia, the Turkmens, who are understandable for the Turks, in the Jisr-Sugur and the vicinity of the Uigurs, whom the Turks themselves built there, have been negotiating with the Turks for a long time (good they always had influence on the nusra and the “zengids”) before entering, as a result, they apparently even accompany the Turks in idlib, give them towns along Afrin, yesterday they transferred the helipad.
          right now, the Turks will slowly settle down there, restructure the local militants and calmly enter Afrin from three sides. gypsies have no chance.

      I doubt it very much. Turkey will still give pepper, I don’t know what it is. They reconciled with the GDP, though it’s not very good with the Kurds, if you do not say so, Turkey is a strong player in the region. And there, Iran is snoozing in the wings.

    Oh and the East ... it’s not even a delicate matter, but a long one with subluxations. Some Kurds are worth it, especially since there is no unity.
    The Syrians were friends (learning to shoot down an adversary in the sky), communications broke three years ago. Maybe already alive.

    Few people today have a real combat-ready army.
    Recall Georgia, Ukraine.
    And about the valiant actions of the Iraqi army is also not an indicator.
    Well, the Iraquois entered, the Kurds fled, in fact, dispersed.
    Now reinforcements will approach the Kurds, regroup and launch a counterattack, and at the same time activate the guerrilla war in which they have extensive experience.

    Meanwhile, the IS is evacuating its own to Afghanistan and Libya ... They will rest, gain strength and, having chosen the moment, they will appear again somewhere. Their idea of ​​creating an Islamic Caliphate, having paid off religious differences, pleased many people in different countries that profess Islam. Most likely, in the future they will gain strength again, including in Syria ... Porridge in B. Vostok was brewing firmly. And not only there ...

By the way, according to media reports, the EU has already refused to restore Syria, as well as the United States. Apparently, Russia alone will have to do this ...
