Kurds explained why the Turkish army fought precisely for the 30-km zone in northern Syria

32

Kurdish armed groups continue to remain in the 30-km zone in northern Syria, although Washington previously stated that they are the guarantors of the withdrawal of the so-called Syrian democratic forces. In the same zone are the main opponents of the SDS - the Turkish military and armed groups controlled by them, calling themselves the Syrian Free Army (SSA). Such a neighborhood inevitably leads to clashes.


Against this background, media controlled by Kurdish formations come out with materials explaining why it is precisely talking about the 30-kilometer-controlled zone in northern Syria in Ankara. Earlier it was reported that this zone reaches the M-4 highway, which actually separates the very north of Syria from other regions in several provinces of the SAR, including Aleppo and Hasek.

The Kurds say that it is extremely important for Turkish troops to enter the M-4 highway and take control of it in order to control the transport of goods (including oil) from the east to the Mediterranean coast. When M-4 in the northern regions of the SAR was under the “joint” control of the Kurds and the US military, the volume of cargo transportation along this highway increased. This led to a simultaneous decrease in freight traffic through Turkey.

Kurdish sources:

If the Turks needed a "security zone" or territory for the resettlement of Syrian refugees, then they could manage, for example, with an 15 or 20-kilometer zone.

For reference: M-4 is, in fact, a cross-border transport artery. She goes from Iraq through the Syrian Kamyshly in the direction of Manbij and the largest city of SAR Aleppo. The supply of Kurdish troops was going along this section. Further, the route goes in the direction of Idlib, leaving on the M-5. Ultimately, the road leads to Latakia, to the Mediterranean ports.


In Syrian Kurdistan, they say that Turkish troops and pro-Turkish forces initially began fighting in key areas, allowing quick access to the M-4, with the subsequent opportunity to create their strong points there. We are talking about such cities and towns as Arisha, Kashimiya, Rashidiya, Debs and some others.

It is stated that the transfer of M-4 to Turkish control is “Erdogan’s plan to expand Turkish influence and pursue neo-Ottoman ambitions.”

In Turkey itself, they did not initially hide the fact that the M-4 highway is really important for them, but not only to gain control over freight traffic (oil traffic), but in order to stop the supply of YPG / PYD.

      The Turkish army is armed, I would not say "good" not bad, yes! The strongest side of the Turks has always been the infantry. Turks are fanatical patriots, often this patriotism is on the verge, they have very strong special forces, but the people as a whole are poorly literate militarily, but go into battle with confidence. When they are asked in an interview what do you say to Turkey and the people? before the fight they answer:
      "relatives don't wait for me at home" and some "we're going to the wedding." There, after all, the pro-Turkish forces are fighting in the vanguard ÖSE, if the real army entered there, the result would come earlier. But I would not overestimate the Turks, in fact, most of them are not literate militarily, the people, although very brave and selfless. I would bet on the competent military than on the brave

        Blind fanaticism is not yet a guarantee of combat success, courage and cold calculation, this can to some extent guarantee success. The Japanese had kamekadze in all branches of the military, did this help them much? Blind fearlessness only increases human losses. So many and in vain Russian officers died in WWI.

          I agree to 100 %%. In the conditions of military operations - fear is a guard against unjustified military losses. I personally removed the soldiers from the mine clearance group if I saw that there was no fear. This made it possible not to lose people. So taught and so right!

      I have not forgotten, but you were ahead, and I can only express full agreement with you and assume that apparently the Kurds have decided that if the Turks can dispose of Syrian oil, then why not do it? Here are the "good Americans" with their help, and joint patrolling, which is perceived as direct interference in economic interests ...
      Still, I would like to ask: "Does Assad decide anything at all on his own?"

      Because the Kurds are historically presented to the Turks, and the Turks to the Kurds. Russia and Damascus, as a result of the entry of Turkish troops in the 30-km. zone, bloodlessly got under the control of the SAA territories that were previously held by the Kurds and where the Americans, in turn, inhabited. All for their own interests, except for the Kurds.

        Historically? Let’s take a look, however, where Kurdistan has historically been located:

        And it turns out that Turkey is not the only defendant. belay
        All the troubles of BV are that there are too many different "pointed points" and "blunt points", and the theorists of the stick have been added to them, as something infinite and having two ends. All their life and in all ages, peoples have agreed, and when there is a claim of rights, and even sponsored from the outside, then you can never get to the truth.
        Turkey was able to create statehood. Syria too. What kind of statehood do the Kurds have? The desire to stay in the right place at the right time in the form of an enclave, because this is what the sponsors told the elders, or by international recognition? Do they have some kind of state concept or just a desire to profit from the right to own land where there is oil? Repeated question: "What after oil?" Indeed, from the very beginning, the Kurds were engaged in agriculture:
        The territory of Kurdistan was the most important center of the greatest revolution in the history of mankind - the agricultural revolution (11-4 millennia BC)

        How do you imagine the tribal way in the center of Germany, for example? In exactly the same way, all Kurdish communities are educated in this region.
        The solution to this Kurdish issue is more than one tube ... request

          The map that you presented is not the historical Kurdistan, but the one that the Americans would like to make. In 1919, they saw a slightly different "historical" Kurdistan,
          but then they did not know that in the region there would be that amount of oil that would push them to adjust its borders towards expansion with access to the Mediterranean Sea. In general, having outlined the creation of Kurdistan, mattresses for 100 years have not abandoned this idea and are consistently moving towards the realization of the idea of ​​redrawing the borders of the Middle East using interethnic and inter-confessional contradictions.

            Dear Dmitry!
            You perfectly understood what I wanted to say, and I took the first one that came up only because the solution to the Kurdish issue (in my opinion) lies not only in the plane of relations between the Kurds and Turkey. You realized that no one will discuss matters with all the tribes individually.
            You perfectly understand that the intervening "world decider" represented by the United States has no right to do this (where are the Kurds and where is the United States?) And, as time has shown, they cannot speak in the BV, because they almost immediately grab the dagger.
            And it's not about the gas or oil pipe (only), because all this is temporary. Nobody creates a state (in their right mind) for the implementation of certain economic plans. And the point is in the "pipe of peace", which here you can smoke endlessly, while it is set on fire.

    And what was transported so intensely there, especially when there were barmalei in Aleppo? The Idlib adder is still not cleaned.

    M 4 is our Don track. It's just that it's still a free site. If our Avtodor comes there, installs payment points there, sells transponders to the Turks and Kurds - and go ahead, let everyone ride, they just pay.

    Still easier. All the main Kurdish and Turkoman regions of Zaevfraty are located exactly on the border with Turkey. Having occupied 30 km of the zone, the Turks would have solved the Kurdish issue in Syria according to the Armenian model. SNA would drive the Kurds out of their territory. and then loyal to the Turks Turkoman, refugees and SNA fighters would be settled in Kurdish cities. And Turkey would have at least a reliable buffer from a loyal population.
