ALEPPO, SYRIA (5:45 A.M.) – The recent advances by the Kurdish-led “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF) has partially blocked the Turkish-backed rebels from reaching the key town of Al-Bab in northeast Aleppo.

On Monday, the Syrian Democratic Forces managed to capture several villages from the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Shamiyah (Levantine Front) north of Aleppo City, leaving them within striking distance of the Islamic State’s front-lines in the Al-Bab Plateau.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian Democratic Forces now find themselves in Turkey’s way, as the latter attempts to expand their operations inside Syria.

Not to be left out, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has also intensified their military operations in northern Aleppo, capturing a number of small villages near the strategic Sheikh Najjar Industrial District.

The Syrian Arab Army has recently coordinated with the Syrian Democratic Forces in northern Aleppo, enraging the Turkish regime that is attempting to expel the Kurdish forces from northern Syria.

In the coming weeks, it is very likely that the Syrian Democratic Forces will reach the western outskirts of Al-Bab; this will ultimately welcome war with Turkey, as the latter refuses to accept a Kurdish-dominated presence on their border.

this will ultimately welcome war with Turkey” — w*f is this supposed to mean?

Are SAA going to actively help SDF capture Al Bab a.s.a.p., or just wait for it to be handed over to Erdogan’s proxies so he can in return keep the logistics line to IS in Raqqa open, while also using it as a staging post for attacking Aleppo from the East?

It would be extremely stupid to allow this to happen.
