BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:07 P.M.) – The official Kurdish administrative bureaucracy that runs Syria’s Afrin region has called on the government in Damascus to protect the region and its people from the ongoing assault against it by Turkey-led forces.

Moments ago, the Afrin Self-Administration Office (a regional extension of the Kurdish Democratic Union Party) posted a statement (seen below) officially calling on the Syrian government to fulfill its duty to protect the region – a part of sovereign Syrian soil – from Turkish invasion by deploying its military.

The statement did make the effort to point out that Kurdish forces had protected Afrin from terrorists and invaders for the last six years and that they would continue to do so even once the Syrian Armed Forces stepped in.

A key part of the statement reads:

“We call out for the Syrian government to protect Afrin and Syria’s borders by deploying the Syrian Armed Forces to protect Afrin borders.”

Well, that didn’t take long. Does this mean that they are ready to return administrative and security control to the rightful government?…or do they expect Syria to protect them and give nothing? Being your own ‘country’ isn’t all that easy, is it? They could have saved themselves (and innocent civilians) a lot of grief if they had taken the offer the Russians and Syrians presented to them in the first place. They believed their own propaganda, which is never a good thing. Now they are crying for help and all their bluster is gone. TFB, they brought this on themselves…now… Read more »

Bad analysis! Rojava never reclaimed secession, unlike KRG in Iraq!

Can’t you see any further then your nose? Before KRG existed they didn’t reclaim secession too. It is only until it’s created and worldwide accepted, and after a few years Rojava would become another KRG.

Ha those Kurd-tards are really funny when Syrian army told them to hand over the Syrian land to Syrian Arab army to be protected they refused. Why would they intervene now and risk Syrian soldiers lives. Let those Turkmen and kurd-tards kill each other after all what those Kurdish traitor did to Syria.

These Kurdish ‘traitors’ liquidated 80% of ISIS, allowing SAA to deal with Nusra’n’Co way more quietly!
You seem to forget that Erdogan plans to walk on Damascus too!

The Syrian government only made a symbolic protest of the Turksish operation. Of course it helps Syria if Turkey destroys the US-backed militias.

Exactly as I predicted. And we can probably expect an alliance to expel the Euphrates Shit Turkish proxies from the Azaz, Jarablus al-Bab triangle. Note that Germany just asked NATO to hold immediate meeting over Afrin. Germany also stops exporting weapons to Turkey. If TAF bombs US militaries in Manbij, it might become very grim for Turkey… Deputy PM Bozdağ: The US should stop supporting YPG militants, review its forces on the ground if it wants to avoid possible clash with Turkey during its anti-terror operations in Syria => Won’t happen! Turkish Foreign Minister: We will not attack the forces… Read more »

The UNSC will do squat. Any proposal that Germany makes will be counter-productive and will go nowhere.The UN also has a history of uselessness and bias in relation to Syria. Erdo will laugh in their face, because he knows they have no b***s. UNSC has ZERO/ZIP/NADA ability to command a NATO response. The only entity that has any sway with the Turks is Russia…they’ve already seen what happens when you poke the bear. As for the US…Turkey has the (self proclaimed) semi-legal position of self protection (ala Israel), the US does not. The US cannot attack a NATO member in… Read more »

Civil society in most , if not all European countries will not sanction any NATO wars in Syria, I am sure. The NATO Training Cadres have quietly trained both the SDF and the FSA for years , which I find amusing BUT EU Civil Society would not when confronted by reality. “Moreover, the files about Erdogan cronies backing terrorist groups and not only in Syria are millions in numbers!” You omit Daeshbag, that the USA has been heavily involved in training and arming terrorists in Syria and Iraq, to name just two of the US Terror Regime Change wars.

And the USA, with its NATO partner Norway, are still busy training terrorists at al-Tanf

“And UNSC s likely to take measures!”

So what. When are they going to enforce Res. 242?

Oh, a no fly zone will be easy to maintain… A single Rafale squadron would be enough to interdict the whole Afrin canton to TAF without even flying over it : Meteor can take out aircraft from 200km+ and is near unescapable… Moreover, you only need a 500m road portion to operate the aircraft and they can even be pushed to 10-11 missions a day. Turkey has half a pilot per jet fighter and a single Rafale in a pure air-superiority load can take out a full squadron in one flight. It’s even worst having to face these than facing… Read more »
