Iraqi Kurdistan ready to help Afrin

37
Iraqi Kurdistan is ready to send armed detachments to Afrin to assist the Syrian Kurds in the fight against Turkey, reports Interfax statement by the representative of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (the ruling autonomy party) Maly Bakhtiar.




The countries of the region, in particular Turkey, know our position,
Bakhtiyar told reporters.

If we can, we will help Afrina now. If they allow, we will send our forces there,
added on.

However, “before sending our troops there with their (Syrian Kurds) consent, we will send a delegation to Ankara for negotiations. We prefer dialogue to war, ”noted Bakhtiyar.

According to him, "when solving the Syrian issue, the interests of the Kurdish population should be taken into account, this should happen politically, not militarily."

At the same time, the representative of Kurdistan criticized the armed formations of the “Syrian Free Army” (SSA), which on the side of Turkey is actively involved in the operation “Olive Branch” against the Kurdish militia in Afrin.

The Syrian opposition must understand that its rights are violated by Damascus, not Afrin,
He stressed.

Recall, the operation of the Turkish troops against the Syrian militia in Afrin, began last Saturday. To date, the Turks have advanced deep into the territory of Syria on 7,5 km.

      ... Iraqi Kurdistan is ready to help Afrin ...

      An interesting twist.
      Has Mala Bakhtiyar ever taught geography? Nothing that he, with his camp, "help render" gathered in a neighboring state.
      It seems to be a pity for the Kurds - they rush along the BV like a tumbleweed. Now cling to one "nipple", then to another. With their moronic initiatives, they nullify all the good attitude towards this people that still remains ...

        Yes, even closer to the coast, Afrin is on the western edge of the SAR.

      Of course, it is expected and as always - ours lick the ass for those who are bolder. No.
      However, they did not expect anything else from our elite.

    They are trying to position themselves as a recognized and influential, full-fledged state, and Erdogan will not even talk to them.

      Nobody needs such a state there at all. Erdogan acts here as a bugbear - he does not need more than anyone.

    As a result, the Turks pat the Syrian Kurds and at the negotiations the Kurds “voluntarily” agree to go under Assad’s control.

          What's the difference? The United States threw Iraqi Kurds immediately after the independence referendum, when the Iraqi army kicked them out of Kirkuk, for the sake of indignation, saying that “It’s not for the United States to throw weapons at Iraq so that they would smash the Kurds with these weapons” Before making calls on Africa , they would first return to Kirkuk. Threw SDF, quit and YPG ...

        The United States is really under the control of the SDF for which the Turks are fighting, not the YPG. YPG has always been only for Syria. For helping us and the Syrians, they are now punished. And ours also handed them over. .

    That's it! They want to compromise Erdogan on this. Would you be more accommodating with terrorists? After all, they recognized the Kurdish RP terrorist, but in another RF and Turkey, well, there’s no way to harm them ..

    Most likely, the Turks will squeeze the Kurds from Afrin and the Kurdish formations from the enclaves will unite with the Rakkovo and Iraqi. And there already as the card lies.

      It's time to customize the green buses and the Athenian Kurds - for the Euphrates. Until better times.

    Here, as expected, this onslaught of Turkey may blow together, but that is not all. Also, the states will throw their geeks. And then Turkey, without the support of kirdyk, and they begin to cut it, like Syria - of course this will not happen, you have to save the "friend".

    The massacre has long begun. It was the turn of the Turks and Kurds to participate in the "blood bath". "Uncle Sam" will not leave them alone now.

    A new batch begins, and this batch will be abruptly new. At least four countries are directly involved - Syria, Turkey, Iran, Iraq. There are Kurds everywhere and everywhere is a problem. And everywhere the Kurds do not seem to fit. In the course of the play, the Americans have long been preparing this. Blaze up so that few people would not seem. One detail - Kurds about 40 million.

    I don’t understand. “Where are the Germans, where are ours?” But in my opinion, the more Kurds, Turks and Pin Docs kill themselves there, the better for Assad and for us. IMHO, I'm sorry.

    The intrigue begins to spin!
    Further it will be more interesting, if only in that part where they talk about help from the Kurds of Iraq. Do you still have to cross the border and in what place will they go without communicating with official Damascus?

    The Syrian war has every chance of smoothly growing into a Kurdish-Iraqi-Iranian-Syrian war. In all countries, the Kurds do not fit, but someone needs to rekindle a new batch.
