Syrian Kurds promise Turkey to respond with “war along the entire border” in case of attack

66
Representatives of Kurdish armed groups in Syria responded to statements by the Turkish president about their readiness to launch a military operation on the eastern bank of the Euphrates in northern Syria. A large Turkish contingent of at least 6 thousand troops has accumulated at the borders of the SAR.




Representatives of the so-called Syrian Democratic Union spoke out that if Turkish troops try to enter the territory controlled by the SDS, then a full-fledged war awaits them. This statement was made on Twitter by the SDS spokesman Mustafa Bali. Recall that the Syrian Democratic Union is actively supported by the United States.

Mustafa Bali on Twitter:

We are committed to the security mechanism and are taking all necessary steps to stabilize the region. But we will immediately turn any Turkish attack into a total war along the border in order to protect our people.

Meanwhile, Middle Eastern sources report that today Turkish combat aircraft can deliver the first airstrikes on positions of Kurdish armed forces.

Earlier, Turkish Minister of Defense Hulusi Akar said that the operation in northern Syria is necessary to create the "30-km security zone." Ankara wants to resettle hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees who are still on Turkish territory in this buffer zone. It is mainly about Arab refugees. Syrian Kurds are actively opposing this.

        The Kurds, like many, still have that discord in the ranks. But enough forces have been put on the military "rails" to keep the fire of war there.
        It depends on the sponsors how it will be there. Smolder or blaze!

          The US needs to support the war - they will help the Kurds.
          Israel needs to do the muck of Turkey - help the Kurds.
          Syrians and Russia do not need war - they will interfere with Turkey.
          In total, all major players will directly or indirectly be on the side of the Kurds.

                The most productive in this war is to stand between the warring.
                Well, do not forget politics. There are protests, all kinds of notes, an ideological war in the media is mandatory. Impact on Turkey's partners.

          The Kurds could have had "autonomy" at the beginning of the "solution to the Syrian problem." but the United States and Israel hurried in advance .. We had to launch the Turks, by agreement .... The East is a delicate matter and nobody can be trusted there. And Russia cannot leave Syria! wink

              The Turks announced the name of the operation "Baris Pinarlari", if I am not mistaken, it means "Sprouts of Peace". After the operation, they intend to build 140 villages and 10 townships in those territories to accommodate 2 million Syrian refugees who are in Turkey. the fact is that 350 thousand of these refugees are Kurds.

                  Already no one will bother or upset the plans. According to Turkish analysts, the Russian Federation, Syria and Iran are not against this operation. And the United States will move away, not far, but they will have to, forcedly. The Turks themselves say that they gathered 80 thousand of their soldiers, mainly a special unit and another 15 thousand assistants to the Syrians, who will be used in the front line.

                      Just yesterday, there was a speech of a high official (I don’t remember who) addressing the Kurds that they say we did everything in our power, but the Turks are our allies and we must take into account everything ... etc. That is, Kurds if not, they should draw conclusions from such speeches. Or the US press: if the Turks enter, we will have to leave .. and so on. They give signals to the Kurds that they understood the created circumstance.

        So Erdogan think well and better consult with Russia.

        Most likely, Erdogan with GDP has a certain agreement on how tightly Turkey can press the Kurds in the person of the SDF. There are only certain contradictions over the depth of the "security zone". Turks want 30 km., and Russia and Iran agree on 15 km. (mattresses agree on 5 km.) It is noteworthy that official Damascus is not actively protesting about a possible operation on Syrian territory, but rather, on the contrary, almost does not protest, but all because the Kurds have become a problem for both Assad and Erdogan. they both "tired" with their idea of ​​creating an independent Kurdistan. Erdogan, by virtue of his ambitions, understands perfectly well that beating the SDF will be a worthy response to the United States for the fact that it was with their submission in the recent past that he was almost cut off his head during a coup attempt. Assad understands that if the Turks begin to seriously put pressure on the Kurds, then they (the Kurds) can throw themselves under the umbrella of Damascus and refuse (or seriously move) their demands for autonomy, which automatically solves the problem between the Kurds and Syrians. Russia understands that with the hands of Edik and Assad, it is possible to move the interests of mattresses in an important region for Russia. Iran understands that the interests of mattresses in the region will be seriously affected. As a result, it turns out that everyone, except mattresses and Kurds, will have their buns. There is no doubt that the massacre will soon begin there, and the countdown time is ticking until October 15.

Surely cut off the phone at the Dark One before the promised invasion ...

They believed that they could secretly rule Israel and, through it, influence the American Jewish community. These were illusions, the Soviet people did not understand the political system of Israel.

                L. Mlechin is a person, of course, capable, but he is not a historian but a journalist, his vision of historical realities is far from reality and his assessments are superficial. The catchy headline "Why did Stalin create Israel?" does not correspond to the truth in the least. Soviet diplomats and representatives of Eastern European states, at Stalin's instructions, really spoke in the UN for the proclamation of Israel's independence, but this was done not out of a desire to provide the Jews with the opportunity to create their own national hearth, but in the intention to resist the British and gain a foothold in the Mediterranean. The logic of the historical process unambiguously testifies to the fact that even without the support of the USSR, the state of Israel would have gained independence, maybe a little later, but inevitably.

    Today, the Kurds are the only force that benefits from the Syrian conflict. They are supported by the United States, and to some extent the Russian Federation. They do not conflict with Assad. Controlling the Syrian-Turkish border, they greatly impede the supply of pro-Turkish rebels.

          Olive Branch - Kurds driven out of Afrin. Here the truth about military victory can hardly be argued. For there were many reports of the presence of the Russian military police, which had to rake that mess

      the guerrilla war in Turkey in 2015-16, the RPK lost outright. the Turks killed most of the apochists, the survivors managed to dump in Syria. plus a sympathetic Kurdish peacekeeper got it, which, of course, does not paint the image of the Turkish gendarmerie. in Iraq, now the Turks are again chasing Odzhalanovites - Turkish oporniks all over the north of Iraq, aviation bombing daily. rkkashniki go to the shangal and again to Syria. in Afrin, the Kurds simply failed, they resisted only at first, then the whole defense collapsed.

        the guerrilla war in Turkey in 2015-16, the RPK lost outright.

          where did they retreat? cleared and Diyarbakir and Dzhizra, etc.
          It’s just that the RPK retreated to Syria, and then they built a wall on the border behind the Turks. now you have to dig tunnels to get back.

    This is my personal opinion, and I apologize in advance. Kurds will give themselves in the ass to anyone who will support their desire for self-determination.

    No matter how the Turks rattle their weapons, the Kurds will not give them their land for anything. De facto, they do not submit to Turkey, and therefore consider it exclusively as an aggressor. Of course, there won’t be a full-scale war, but partisan warfare will be for sure. The Kurds are well aware that they are going to kill them, so the entire population, from small to large, will resist. They have the most powerful motivation that can be. But the Turks in this situation are ordinary punishers, and they will certainly lose. It is a pity that while it reaches them, a lot of blood will be shed.

      There will be a very cruel lesson for Kurds.
      It was not worth contacting the Americans and staying loyal to Assad.
      It will take time and thousands of corpses on both sides.
      And then the Kurds will howl, and they will remember that they are citizens of Syria.
      Here is the happy end.

      Erdogan if bent, then his home-grown Kurds will not sit still.
      This fragmented nation seeks reunification.
      Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran are Kurdish enclaves.
      And they want independence and statehood.
      And not one of these countries is interested in this.

        Kurds can also be understood. After the collapse of the USSR, the United States became the only center of power. To whom, if not to the amers, they had to address with their problems? Yes, the partner is unreliable, but the Kurds simply had no other options. No, and now. The Turks will not agree on anything with them, they only think of force suppression. But in any case, this is not a solution to the problem. Without respect for the rights of national minorities, there will be no peace in Turkey itself, since Turkish Kurds will certainly resist the authorities after the start of the military operation. So, if they are not granted autonomy, the Kurds will seek the creation of an independent Kurdistan. How events will develop further, now depends on the position of the USA and Russia. They will have to intervene in any way, since the actions of the Turkish authorities may provoke a new round of war in the Middle East.

      "No matter how the Turks rattled their weapons, the Kurds will never give them their land."

      To do this, you first need to have this land, and they have been occupied by others in recent years, in search of sponsors, they themselves will not fight, they could have fought in Afrin.

      No arguing against the facts. Show me the Kurds in Afrin. Gave their land, slightly resisting.

    Commenting on what the Kurds mean by war is a big question. There are many Kurds. Erdogan runs the risk of getting a big terrorist war. Here the S-400 will not help.

    Turkey has a problem with Kurds, the country's population consists of 30% of Kurds. And now, an attempt to get into Syrian Kurdistan does not end with Turkey’s internal problems?

    Something the Kurds did not get along with the First World War, when Turkey "threw" them (in the conflict against the Armenians) and went.
    Of course, who will agree to give up part of their territories with oil reserves, incl. Syria, Iraq ..., but to maintain the "fire" it is not even necessary directly, as in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, to send troops and bomb something. Super-cheap oil gushes from all sides of the conflict: both the Kurds and Iraq are ready to fill tankers for next to nothing, for ammunition and "for food."

    Photo in an article from the news feed of the Turkish media.

    MSB: Third joint ground patrol in eastern Telebad with TAF and US personnel, ground vehicles and unmanned aerial vehicles at the Safe Zone facility in eastern Euphrates in Syria


    It's funny The United States supports the Kurds, but conduct joint operations with Turkey.

    then there is a contract. 1 Turks beat the Kurds 2 Kurds howl and flee to Assad 3 Russia supposedly pity the Kurds intervene and persuade Assad to give them autonomy 4 so that the Turks do not rock the boat, create the zone that the Turks want and throw all refugees from the neck there and put the grandmothers from the geyropa in your pocket but if the Kurds beat the Turks the whole plan collapses

    What kind of Kurds are we talking about? Subscribed. Or independent?

    Whatever anyone says, a nation, all the more so cohesive and vast as the Kurds, must have its own state (and better so, because we remember how formal autonomies turn out on the example of Russia, not to mention Birobidzhan).
    PS. I hope very much that Israel will continue to support the self-determination of the Kurds. It’s not worth forgetting that we also went this way ...

    Yes, this cannot be! So that someone "exceptional" could set up such circumstances that they could not overcome them!
    I.e. they don’t catch a crocodile or grow a coconut ... because they cannot cancel Mondays?
    Cool.

    And why. Look into history until the Kurds of the Turks get jammed, they show power, the states will not come to their aid.
    No one will come. They must push themselves, then we will help them.
    And then the states will catch up. Well, as always... laughing
    PS. With the Turks, we need something directly ..
