France intends to send troops to Syrian Manbij to help the Kurds

50
The French government has decided to send special forces units to Syrian Manbidzh to assist the Arab-Kurdish SDF detachments, against which the Turkish army is conducting a military operation, reports RIA News.




As the representatives of the Syrian Democratic Forces told the Parisien newspaper, yesterday the SDF delegation met in Paris with French President Emmanuel Macron.

According to the publication’s interlocutors, the French leader promised “very soon” to send units of army special forces to Manbidj. Their number is not specified.

At the same time, he noted that military actions will be conducted in coordination with the American command.

Earlier, Ankara demanded the immediate withdrawal of the US-backed Kurdish Self-Defense Forces (SDF) from Syrian Manbij. The Turkish National Security Council said that the failure to comply with this requirement could entail a military operation, similar to those that were carried out in other areas in northern Syria.

    The French did not dare to actively fight with ISIS even after the terrorist attacks in France, but they express their intention to "fight" with Turkey. Oh well. Probably the same as their glorious aircraft carrier, which lasted a week off the coast of Syria and disappeared in an unknown direction.

      The reasons for this indecision are by no means military. The French are able to fight, in Africa they are constantly involved in some muddy deeds. It’s just that the owner didn’t order it, but now he orders it.

          To fight with Turkey at such a distance from France - apparently for a long time there were no great losses. Trump was about to move out. And they call in. A setup? bully

            Well, as it were, and success to them there. But it seems to me if they were talking about a real confrontation with Turkey, they would not have risked blathering.

        If they are fighting with a little-known result against wild tribes, this does not mean at all that they know how to fight, and the Legion of Foreigners is fighting, their Turks are turned inside out, the paddles are not fighting, the Brest Fortress lasted longer than the whole of France, during the defense of the Pavlov House the Nazis lost more than during the assault on all of Paris

        They would have justified, in the framework of international law, the landing of their commandos in Syria. Without a UN mandate, they, like mattresses, will have the status of occupying forces.

          The status of the "occupying forces" Mikronchik does not scare. Here it is necessary to offer the General Staff of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation a new tactic. Restore the combat effectiveness of the SAR army and cover the sky with air defense / missile defense systems

                This is what I understand and SUPPORT! I, the “fan” of anti-aircraft defense, had to defend a taut heaven, but we defended it as ours, because the Motherland said so. I also taught Syrian anti-aircraft gunners, well, we have someone to do it again.
                The main thing that he would make a decision! This is a question that needs to be solved and then not to regret anything, because if you didn’t do it, it may turn out that you will have to regret much more.
                My such opinion.

        The French and fight? Something like this is not very good at them. Capture African colonies with tribes that eat one another, but to fight?
        If the French are so concerned about protecting someone there, then Africans with other Arabs should land in France with weapons to protect fellow citizens and other Arabs from the Nazis who feel very good in France.

                Advisers from France and England were constantly. Constantly trained the Turks to war with Russia. The films Admiral Nakhimov and Admiral Ushakov are an example of this.

              Yes, yes, why don’t I remember the "raspberry junkers", the Russian expeditionary forces, who saved the southern flank of the French army with their heroism ... why I don’t remember De Gaulle and other French heroes ....
              I remember everything and rely on the memories of the participants in those events. The general opinion is that after the exaltation of France during the time of Napoleon, no one could say about any independent successes of France.
              After Russia - Japan, Russia has not lost ANYTHING. The Brest peace was not surrender; by the will of the then leadership of the republic, peace was concluded.
              If you read what I am writing, you understand that my main interest is the current situation in my country. I do not chat, I fight for my homeland and not here.

      The Kurds were settled in Arfin - this is such an enclave east of Idlib and north of Aleppo.

      In Manbij (the city is a millionaire - just west of the Euphrates) in the north of Syria - they are completely zigging themselves and promise to kick their ass to the Sultan right across Ankara itself. Also, the entire east coast of the Euphrates follows the Kurds.

    FIRST --- In 1916, between the countries of the Entente, a secret agreement was signed between Sykes and Pico on the post-war division of the Ottoman Empire, according to which Lebanon, Syria, northern Iraq and southeastern Turkey were recognized as a zone of interest for France. In the same year, a French-Armenian agreement was concluded, in accordance with which the French Armenian Legion was created.
    NEXT --- Having left Marash and Urfa, the French nevertheless did not intend to leave Cilicia. The next task of the Turkish nationalists was to gain control over the passages in the Taurus Mountains. In May 1920, the French garrison at the Pozanti railway station, which is north of the "Cilician Gate" (Gulék Gorge) was cut off. When two French attempts to lift the blockade failed, the 500-man garrison left the city and tried to break through the mountains to the south. On May 28, a French convoy was ambushed by 40 Turkish partisans. The commander of the French Major Mesnil capitulated; in his report to the authorities, he said that they were allegedly surrounded by 15 thousand Turks. After this, a 20-day truce was concluded between the local Turkish and French units; the French agreed to clear Pozanty and the surrounding area.
    AND LATER --- Franklin-Bouillon promised that the French side would sell Turkey unnecessary weapons to Turkey at the factory price, and that it would be left by the French units upon withdrawal, so that Turkish troops would not have to transfer stocks from the Greek front when relocating to these areas. The Armenians, who returned to Cilicia with the French troops, preferred to leave with them.
    December 21, 1921 Turkish troops entered Adana, December 25 - in Gaziantep.
