Military Review

The Kurds are moving forces from Deir ez-Zor to Afrin. Will the CAA take advantage?

36
The Turkish General Staff reports that it is increasing the concentration of forces and assets near the border with Syria against the background of the ongoing operation against Kurdish PYD / PKK troops in Afrin. What is the reason?


Under the control of the Turkish gendarmerie forces, dozens of additional infantry fighting vehicles were transferred to Kilis, who was subjected to another rocket attack from Afrin, tanks and armored personnel carriers.

The Kurds are moving forces from Deir ez-Zor to Afrin. Will the CAA take advantage?


At the same time, the Turkish media reported that in the area of ​​the conflict another column was sent with the so-called “Syrian Free Army” (FSA), supported by Ankara.

From early morning today, Turkish troops using self-propelled artillery systems are shelling the positions of Kurdish troops in the region of Afrin. The fire is conducted from the territory of the provinces of Kilis and Hatay (Turkey).

Information Agency Anadolu with reference to the military command reports that about an hour ago (11: 00 MSK), Turkish troops, with the support of the SSA, drove the Kurds out of the settlement of Bak Ubasi in the immediate vicinity of Afrin. At the same time, it is reported that after entering the Buck Ubasi, numerous underground communications PYD / PKK were discovered.

The Turkish General Staff claims that since the start of Operation Olive Branch, more than 700 "militants of the terrorist groups" have been eliminated. Terrorist units Ankara calls the Kurdish armed forces.

Against this background, attention is drawn from Syria explaining the build-up of the Turkish grouping in the area of ​​the Syrian border. Kurdish troops, which the US planned to use in opposition to the Syrian government army in the area of ​​the previously liberated CAA Deir ez-Zor and Abu Kemal, are urgently deployed to Afrin. Representatives of the Kurdish troops, some of whom are posing against the backdrop of American military equipment, state that they "are already moving from Deir ez-Zor to Afrin, so that the Kurdish people can prevail over Turkey."



It's not bad news for the Syrian government forces. After the withdrawal of Kurdish troops, supported by the United States, from the Deir ez-Zor area, the CAA may well be able to take control of virtually the entire territory of the province - up to its northern territories. Will they take advantage of this chance?

    Here the question rests on how much territory of Syria Turkey wants to seize.
    So "on their" territory, they may not notice the departure of the Kurds and bomb the SAA.

      What will SAA advance in DeZ? All who are, all under the Spirit in Idlib and Aleppo. When they settle with the Turks the new border of the Idlib caliphate, they will begin to clean the enclaves near Damascus.

      Just because Turkey wants something there does not mean that it will receive it. Or will lamentations begin again in VO that Putin has leaked and Turkey is about to take over all of Syria, well, or part of it?

      I doubt that the goal is to capture the territory. Most likely, Ankara was promised not to interfere in their showdown with the Kurds, if the Turks did not occupy the territory of Syria, but only frolic and dumped back to themselves. I am sure that these are the terms of the deal between Ankara and Moscow, with the non-intervention of Damascus. The US also froze for the Kurds to intervene under the pretext that they allegedly support other Kurds, although in fact there is no clear distinction between the Kurds. In any case, open skirmishes between the SAA and the Turks are contraindicated by Russia and have not been agreed. Let's see how Erdagan restrains himself, but now for him to cling to Syria in all respects is not profitable. I think that he expects a “share” in Syria’s political power through representatives of the FSA, after the reconciliation process is completed.

        Do you believe this stuffing? Against the backdrop of the congress of national dialogue on Syria in Sochi, there will be no provocations between the main players. For example, people who are not interested in this congress can bombard the Turkish column with mortars, but can claim that the aircraft of the SAA and Russian Aerospace Forces did this, even if there weren’t any flights there. I think that this stuffing is for the fourth and fifth participants who have not decided who to live with next.

      Well, of course not capture, but control .. And this is a big difference, just remember at the beginning of the Syrian conflict, flows of weapons and devils went through Turkey, and oil columned vehicles back ... Erdogan was taught for this, and the United States almost overwhelmed him .. heh
      So Erdogan, give the devils urine while you are allowed .. Russia and Syria will even have a little rest and are regrouping.

    Well, the Turks entered the swamp, they will have to get stuck in this swamp now. They didn’t think that everything would be easy for them. Let's see what happens next, the Kurds will go to the mountains and wage a guerrilla war, which will be terrible for the Turks. In Syria, their goal is not the PKK, this is in my opinion. One of the goals is the occupation of the territories of Syria. But what other goals is the question.

      The Turks have long been fighting on their territory with the RPK in the mountains and quite successfully, do not fantasize ..
      And what is the occupation? Do you know that in Turkey there are 3.5 million refugees from Syria? In what country of the world are there so many refugees from Syria yet ???? You watch the video, and there are not a few of them, as the Syrians meet the Turkish army. The RPK captured Afrin, and Manbij in which apart from the Kurds live, and Arabs, and Turkmens, and other ethnic groups, and terrorizes the population. Rpk is not Kurds, but rabble from all over the world who love to fight ... it got to the point that the LGBT (gay) battalion was formed. At the moment, Turkey, like no other country in the world, has a reason and the moral right to carry out an operation on the territory Syria! Turkey will clean the border areas from the Rpk and populate the refugees there!
      be objective, leave your hatred of the Turks on the topic of Syria, the same Armenians themselves today safely live in Turkey, which can not be said about the Armenians living in Syria

        Well, excuse me, hatred leads to a heart attack. We reason soberly. Turkey has the right to clean up its territory, no doubt. But they entered the territory of another country. By the way, the legitimate President of Syria Assad is categorically against the Turkish invasion of Syria, calling it aggression. Syrian Kukrda on their territory, successfully fought against ISIS, and the Turks have nothing to do there. Maybe the Turks should "destroy the Kurds" both in Iraq and in the place of their other residences? I repeat (this is my opinion, and not only) is the occupation, two-diverting eyes from domestic political problems (a saying is, if politicians have problems, they start a war), three-free territory for Turkoman (pro-Turkish militants), well, there’s a lot of things there. Recall the Russian politicians, TV reports for months, evidence of Turkish cooperation with IG, oil business, etc. It was no accident.))

          Assad cannot restore order throughout the country. Rpk threatens the integrity of Turkey. 3.5 million refugees in Turkey! Recently, the RPK had appeared man-portable air defense systems, if they had been waiting for Assad to restore order in his country, then the RPK would soon have both tanks and aircraft. Rpk recognized by terrorists in many countries, Turkey had the right to defend its borders! operations in Iraq against the PKK are being carried out now ..
          and Igil, advancing to Al-Bab, the Turks took the territories with fights .... to the Kurds, this same igil handed over the territory without a fight ... so whoever collaborated still needs to see .. do not mislead people ... leopards, about the burnt Turkish soldiers forgotten?

            The border is protected at the border. But it’s the border, so as not to violate it. And the Turks violated it, it’s a fact. And the Syrian Kurds, I didn’t hear that they threatened Turkey. And if the Kurds want to create autonomy (I notice, not in Turkey ) is their right. If the Syrian government approves, of course. And the Turks don’t decide whether the Kurds will have autonomy in Syria or not. And if the Turks decide for Syria, send troops, etc., it's just aggression and occupation.

              what do foreign militants threatening the territory of Turkey in the territory of Syria ?? What do the military states in Syria ?? Assad on duty condemned Turkey, just! why are you Armenians, do not say in all forums that the United States occupied Syria? and with what way does the RPK have the right to autonomy, where Arabs, Kurds, Turkmens live ... most of which do not support atheists from the RPK ?? the Kurds have autonomy in Iraq, is this not enough? according to your logic, if the Armenians of Krasnodar want autonomy, they have the right to it))

                Not the PKKs have the right to autonomy, but the Kurds, who are 40 million. They have the right to the state, and I’m talking about autonomy, and once again, not in Turkey. And in general, this is the sovereign business of Syria, or Iraq, in its to create some kind of autonomy for the territories, but it’s not the business of Turkey. And in general, can you hit Turkey by destroying the “Bozkurs?” Are they terrorists too? Or are they the “right” terrorists? Send troops there to Turkey, and then let Turan go to them want, and this is a threat to other states. Logically?

                  most of the Kurds are loyal to Turkey .. so don’t tell me about the Kurds .. Kurds occupy political posts in the leadership of the state, and in the army, etc. .. some Kurdish paramilitaries take part in the operation in the place with the Turks and Arabs ... the Syrian population supports the Turkish operation .. because the godless Rpk did not give life to the Muslim population in the occupied territories .. call things by their proper names, Rpk are terrorists, and among them there are Kurds, Armenians, Americans, and French. ..etc! It’s Rpk that keeps Afrin .. and not the Kurds!
                  I repeat the question to you why you (Armenians) do not resent and do not call the Americans OCCUPIERS ??? they were not invited not to Afghanistan, not to Iraq, not to Syria, so why? Why do you throw all the stones only in Turkey, although Turkey is a geographical neighbor with these countries, and Turks live in all these countries.

                    I won’t make any plans for the future. We will see how the Turks will do in the future. If they leave and the Syrian army enters the border legally, then without talk. If Turkey "moves its borders 50 kilometers, if not more, and remains there, then occupation. Let's see.

    After the Kurdish detachments supported by the United States leave the Deir ez-Zora region, the SAA will be able to take control of almost the entire territory of the province, right up to its northern territories. Will they take advantage of this opportunity?
    Well, of course, NATO will quickly "accidentally" bomb SAA convoys as soon as they cross over to Efrat ... the line of demarcation between our aircraft and theirs passes through Efrat

    There will be 2 options. The Kurds leave and surrender the territory to Assad, and he passes them to Afrin through his own.
    The second move is a horse, possibly through the ass. The Kurds are leaving, the territory is captured by the remains of Isil. And Assad then cleans the area from Ishil, after a showdown in Idlib.

    The pro-pro-Kurdish formations of the Kurds will not be able to stand by for a long time. The official outflow and desertion towards the clashes between the Kurds and the Turks will go on increasing. Erdagan also profitable to lure SDF
    to shoot, as these are potential enemies of the Turks, dangerous in that they have combat experience and weapons in abundance. It is difficult to say whether mattresses understand this, but in the near future they may lose their “occupation contingent” and then their base on the east side of the Euphrates will be called into question. Russia in this "chess" game is leading. There is a strong impression that the Americans have forgotten how to play chess, only checkers, and even more so they prefer Chapaya.
