Russian military to set up new observation posts in northern Syria after Kurdish appeal

It is reported that the Russian military and representatives of the Kurdish armed formations from the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have reached an agreement on the presence of the Russian Armed Forces in the area of ​​the Syrian city of Ain Issa in the north of the country. These agreements were reached after the Kurdish administration addressed the Russian command. What was the reason for this treatment?


This city, located in the Raqqa province, and its surroundings in the past few days have been subjected to intense shelling from the pro-Turkish armed formations. According to the Kurdistan 24 news service, the pro-Turkish forces were trying to expand their zone of control and gain the ability to control a section of the region's key M4 highway.

On the map, the yellow color indicates the zone of predominantly Kurdish control, gray - the control of the Turkish Armed Forces and pro-Turkish forces north of M4, which connects eastern Syria (up to the border with Iraq) with the largest Syrian city of Aleppo.


The Kurds were afraid of the offensive of Turkish and pro-Turkish formations, and therefore turned to the Russian military.

The reports say that the Russian military, on the basis of agreements, will create an observation post in the Ain Issa area.

At the same time, the Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper reports that the Russian command appealed to the command of the SDF armed detachments in order to order the withdrawal of the armed formations, which will eventually be replaced by the Syrian government army.

The reports of the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights say that the Russian military will be able to create three observation posts in the Ain Issa area. And the Kurdish side allegedly agreed to this, realizing that it could finally lose the city under the pressure of the pro-Turkish armed formations.

At the moment, the Russian Ministry of Defense has not commented on the information about the agreements with the Kurds regarding the presence in Ain Issa.

        The reports of the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights say,


        They repeated 100500 times that this office consists of one rogue, and believe her ... No.

        The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is run by Rami Abdulrahman (sometimes called Rami Abdul Rahman) from his home in Coventry. Abdulrahman is a Syrian Sunni who owns a clothing store. A native of Osama Suleiman, he adopted the pseudonym over his years in Syria and has been using it publicly ever since. After being imprisoned three times in Syria, Abdulrahman fled to the United Kingdom, fearing a fourth prison term, and never returned.

      Fine! This is an established practice of modern local conflicts - rapprochement, aggravation, in the event of an enemy withdrawal, consolidation at a new line.

    The Kurds are still a very unreliable ally ... their focus on the United States after the war in Iraq is too great ... BUT the trend is generally good ... they throw everything ... but the Russians have confidence ... let's see how the rest of the Kurdish forces show themselves. ..

        Nothing reached them. "Kommersant" https://www.kommersant.ru/doc/4605563 with reference to the Arab media writes: According to Arab media reports, the Kurds are trying to simultaneously gain the support of both Washington and Moscow. However, Russia has repeatedly warned the Kurdish forces that it can guarantee their protection only if the territory is transferred under the control of Damascus.

        They even have bones, but what about us except for the problems? The Kurds did not invite us to the oil-bearing regions :)
        At least minus, chhat wink
        When will our military leadership learn to count money?

          Inosmi reports in the article "Struggle for Syrian Oil: Russia Owns the Most, and the US Controls It Through Intermediaries" the following: "Al-Shair is considered a strategically important gas field, since gas production is 3 million cubic meters per day. In addition, the forces of the Syrian regime and the 5th Assault Corps, created with the support of Russia, control oil and gas fields in the Palmyra region. Among them: Al -Gul, Al-Arak, Khiyan, Jahar, Al-Mahr, Abu Ribah and other oil and gas fields, where production is 9 thousand barrels per day. " In the same article: In 2017, the Syrian Oil Ministry estimated the reserves of offshore gas fields at 250 billion cubic meters.
          If these numbers are correct, then Moscow holds most of the Syrian pie. Russia is the main stakeholder in reaching a political solution that will end the Syrian conflict and enable it to actively engage in political and economic issues in Syria.

            Nevertheless, they were not invited to the oil fields, no matter what they wrote in the newspapers, and the United States, as they sat in the oil fields of the Kurds, is still sitting, and who has what share there is only fortune telling

    Kurds will grow wiser if they agree to raise the Syrian flag in controlled territories in exchange for seats in the Syrian parliament - the faster, the more seats ...

      Only their management has been bought, overbought.

      Everyone has Kurds.
      The Afri story is proof of this.
      We did not lay down under Damascus, we lost everything.
      Now Afrin is Turkish.
