The detachments of the Syrian people's forces in the coming hours will be in Afrin

The fighters of the Syrian national forces (SNS) will be stationed in Afrin in the coming hours to counter the Turkish troops and support the Kurds, the official Syrian agency SANA reports.

SNS in the coming hours will be in Afrin to support the resilience of residents in the confrontation of the Turkish aggression, which continues from last month
- writes the agency.

The detachments of the Syrian people's forces in the coming hours will be in Afrin

On Sunday, a number of media outlets reported that, in agreement with the SAR army and the Kurdish self-defense forces, the government forces in the next two days should take a number of positions on the border with Turkey and in the city of Afrin. However, these reports have not yet been confirmed by official sources from Damascus and Afrin.

At the same time, Ankara does not see problems in the introduction of Syrian government forces into Afrin, if they clear the region of the Kurdish self-defense forces (YPG), Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt авavuşoglu said.

We started an operation in Afrin in order to get rid of the threat to our national security. We still stand on it. Now the question is, will the regime forces (Syrian President Bashar Assad) enter Afrin or not? And if they enter, then for what purpose? If they log in to clear it from YPG, there is no problem. If they support the terrorists, nobody will stop us. This is valid for Afrin, and for Manbij, and for the east of the Euphrates.
- said Cavusoglu on the air channel NTV.

This situation was commented by Boris Dolgov, a senior researcher at the Center for Arab and Islamic Studies at the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, who believes that the deployment of pro-government Syrian forces in Afrin in the near future is unlikely, and there should be no fear of large-scale clashes with Turkish forces or interference by Americans.

According to him, "a direct clash is possible between some small units, but a serious clash between Turkish troops and pro-government Syrian troops is hardly possible."

The expert also does not expect serious interference in the situation by the American military in the north of Syria.

The policy of the Americans is to fight with the hands of others, so there is no need to say that they will intervene with their significant military units in the Afrin district on the side of the Kurds

    Coming soon! Now you can see who set what and what ... What agreements with whom ... How the Turks, the Yankees, all sorts of "nusra" will behave ...
    The role of the RF Ministry of Defense in this whole situation is very interesting!

      Not very soon, now there is a “pressure” on all US diplomatic policies on US policy in the B East, in Munich, how they could have done it ... but so the mattress covers will not leave Syria, they will drag on and the mattress will not leave so quickly.

        - It’s good that the Kurds began to grow wiser! Otherwise, they would not have agreed with the government troops.

      Alexander hi -This option could be calculated! No wonder Erdogad suddenly abruptly decided to measure himself from the USA! Obviously, he believed in their help in the fight against the Syrian army.

    As it is very similar to the next "duck." The Russian proposal was for the complete surrender of the canton of Afrin, along with the disarmament of the Kurds, and now it is said about the help of the SAA to the Kurds against the Turks. Something the truth does not pull at all.

    Initially, it was clear that a play was being played to drive the Kurds out from under the Yankers. Ankara had no purpose to engage in skirmishes with CAA. Damascus uses angry rhetoric for its appearance. Apparently, the goal was achieved and the Kurds hesitated. If the Kurds change their minds, then the "educational process" will continue, but with variations ...

    If on the one hand a thousand people fight, on the other a thousand, and all this takes place on an area of ​​several hundred square kilometers, then such a war is more like a dismantling between armed gangs than a military operation, and even more so a siege, battle or battle. The Turks, it seems, do not wash, so skate, they want to get a piece from the Syrian oil and gas pie, and if possible, with a "cherry". Russia, most likely, has “achieved” its goals in Syria, because no one knew and does not know what its goals are. "I fight because I fight!" said Porthos. There is still a small proud country in the Middle East, whose ancient people also suffer from such “wars,” but the craving for profit seems to overdo the sense of self-preservation. But he did not speak them. Syrians, i.e. Syrian citizens, the most suffering side. Instead of working (I recall how good knitwear was brought to us from Syria ...), they are forced to run around in their own country with machine guns to the advantage, hiding from American killers, pirates and their own bandits of all stripes. And who, and when, will stop this disgrace?

      Let yourself and stop. After the French colonial occupation, and not under Free France, but under the Vichy government, the Social Nazis Arabs came to power in the form of the Alawite Baath Party. The only enemy is Israel. Although it is debatable (that it is an enemy), it nevertheless kept tribes, clans, religious movements together. The USSR supported it (TOGETHER). All that is happening in Syria is just an echo of the destruction of the USSR in 1991, like a tsunami. Climbed to the Middle East. And the trouble in this is not for Russia, we are reliably covered by Turks and Ukrainians, but for a small proud State. All: first of all Russia, Iran, then Turks, Kurds with the Americans, Jordanians, self-propelled guns with Qatars cover one single Ass in Syria. Here 100% of all are satisfied with our presence there. “Get out of there” - for all “friends of Syria” it will be a disaster! Geopolitically us this territory "in the drum." After the return of Crimea - doubly "in the drum." Well, nobody will let us go! Therefore, they are brainwashed along Teliaviv-Zora, that Syria is almost Mamaev Kurgan. And the more they “tell” us about the death of Russian hero pilots, the more our inhabitants demand blood! On topvar such comments "pond-prudzhi". And I will say: "This is not our war!". Donbass excites me more.

    I have not heard anything about the SNA. Perhaps they are confused with the National Defense Forces. NSO. Militias created by the Syrian government during the war.

    Hmm, they tied a striped knot. It’s not completely clear to me, will the Kurds make a deal with Assad, or are our sworn friends just trying to play the Turkish card? Type Turks are our partners, they only need Kurds. Russia Turks and Kurds will not touch. And they are like that monkey: "both smart and beautiful." I see only one way out, the Kurds must be pulled out of the clutches of the mattress. And then among the Kurds to identify agents and eliminate. That is still a task, well, praise to our supreme Foreign Ministry, we are not asleep.

      "Kurds must be pulled out of the clutches of the mattress" ///

      Kurds in Afrin were never in the clutches of mattresses.
      Afrikan Kurds are convinced Marxist-Leninists.
      Americans for them are damned imperialists, am
      Assad is a bloody dictator am
      Israel is a Zionist aggressor am
      Turkey is the eternal enemy am
      and Russia - a traitor, peremetnuvshiysya on the side of the eternal enemy. am

        So I also can’t understand why the website writes in the news that the SDF in Afghanistan is fighting against the Turks. Why mislead people? I did not find a single confirmation that the SDF was in Afrin. If the SAA climbs the Turks, they will rake in full.
