Syrian puzzle: CAA goes to the aid of the Kurdish detachments in Afrin

61
RIA News with reference to (quote) "an informed source" reports that in the coming days, the Syrian government army will enter Afrin. Recall that at the approaches to this city in the north of the SAR now Turkish troops and pro-Turkish forces of the so-called “free army” are fighting with the Kurdish militia. We are talking about the operation "Olive Branch".


Recall that about two weeks ago, one of the Kurdish field commanders called on the Syrian government army to assist the Kurds in fighting against the Turkish troops. It is noteworthy that earlier the same Kurdish troops were prepared by American instructors to counter the Syrian government army.

Syrian puzzle: CAA goes to the aid of the Kurdish detachments in Afrin

Azaz (Syria)


If you believe the "informed source" RIA News, the CAA is ready to enter Afrin after the agreement that was recently reached between official Damascus and the command of the Syrian government units.

The Pentagon currently refrains from official comments on this subject, while continuing to recognize the fact of support for Kurdish troops in northern Syria. Recall that the Turkish leadership considers the Kurdish YPG units linked to the Kurdistan Workers Party, which is recognized by Ankara as a terrorist organization.

    According to rumors, the Syrian army has already entered there! So now the Syrian-Turkish war will begin! In general, it was supposed to start - remember Turkish fuel trucks, with oil from igil! Indeed, the Turks will not abandon "their" fighters from igil and nusra. And the Syrian army must take control of the country! Here is the first, and most important, conflict that cannot be resolved peacefully.

        The US will be able to bomb the SAA under the guise of Turkey’s membership in NATO! But on the other hand, Assad does not look distraught, probably held some consultations with the Russian Defense Ministry ...

          Situation in Syria


          Quote: Father of a soldier
          A political decision is indispensable, but too motley negotiators.

          I think .... Assad in a quiet, slightly, should help the Kurds, so that they would not later blame the government for leaving them 1 on 1 with the invasion from Turkey.

          That's something like this, and the Turks, in turn, get curbed Kurds in Syria.

          One must not know Erdogan and the mood of the Turks in order to assert that the "Turks will depart." They will only depart if the Kurds are guaranteed to leave this sector. As for Assad, in the Turkish media he is called nothing more than the “butcher Assad,” and if the Turks enter into a fight, the Turks will simply stretch their arms. The Turks have not yet used areal bombing and strikes on settlements, they worked very carefully, but they will use the entire arsenal against the Asad forces, do not hesitate.

        It seems that Trump, during a call to Erdogad via Tillerson, gave the Turk a “FAS” command, at the beginning of the partition of Syria, first, by the hands of the Turks! Therefore, Erdogad is so self-confident - the United States, at least, will not interfere with him, and if necessary, they will bomb the Syrian army! They urgently need to restore air defense.

        To be honest, I did not expect this step so soon. Everything resembles a game of one big chess game on a big board, with several players. Apparently, the process of pulling the Kurds out from under the Americans begins. How much Russia participates in this party will be seen by the reaction of the Turks. If they shout for a look, but do not cling to CAA, then ours hold on tightly to the situation. East is a delicate matter. We will see ...

          Do you live in a vacuum? Open any resource and read from whom and who got it. Military losses are one thing, a sacred thing, and another thing is the discharge and the end of the myth of crazy Russians with which you should not get involved, because it is fraught with consequences. No consequences, everything is quiet and calm, "these bad boys are not with us, they have not agreed on their plans with the Moscow Region." Does anyone imagine a situation where ours iron the US PMC in Syria, and the American troops pretend that nothing terrible is happening and are not in a hurry to help? So I can’t imagine. So if someone else hasn’t tricked us in Syria - the welk!

      The Turks did not give Idlib, they shot down our second plane, and ours decided not to give the Turks Afrin. Especially since the Kurds are docile - with the Syrians it’s better than under the Turks.

        the second plane was shot down not by the Turks, but by mattresses; there was already not one article about this.
        in addition, the Turks did not have to shoot down at all. for when they first shot down on their skin they sensed that a downed plane gives nothing but problems.
        there most likely the scheme is a kind and angry policeman. good is Assad, evil is Erdogan.
        and the chief of the police station is Putin.

    Also me a Newton binom.
    The statement is political, that is, real clashes are not yet implied.
    Then, the Ottomans under the agreements most likely were given a specific time period in which they did not meet, the events near Afri entered a protracted stage, which is not beneficial to us (conditionally Iran, Syria, Russia), nor Turkey itself, which is important to save face and avoid serious losses.
    Thus, we have a classic eastern contract. But not without a second bottom. Bleed Turkey and Russia (to ensure participation in the clashes of the Russian Aerospace Forces) implicitly dream of all parties to the conflict, including so on. "allies." Therefore, the statement is again - in the east colorful and-vah - how serious.
    We follow the events and do not fantasize.

    This is so that the Turks do not go further into the depths of Syria. They will put up a cordon that will cover ALL the participants in the conflict in Idlib from Erdogan. And no one from the participants in the massacre will touch this cordon, because it is not even profitable for the IG. An interesting and correct decision.
