BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:20 P.M.) – A Kurdish official from the People’s Protection Units (YPG) told Al-Mayadeen TV on Wednesday that his group welcomes the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to enter the Afrin Canton.

“We welcome the Syrian Army to enter the whole Afrin region, as there is an agreement between us and the Syrian government to solve all the issues between us,” the YPG official began.

“We took up arms to defend ourselves – the Syrian government was never an enemy to us, we just want to be part of the political solution in Syria and our weapons will be handed over to Syrian government once a political settlement is in place,” he continued.

“The YPG were never part of the U.S coalition and we didn’t get any support from them. Our weapons and support are all from the Syrian government,” he added.

The claims by this alleged official remain unverified, as no Syrian Army troops are inside Afrin and no statement has been issued by the YPG.

Great if true. I can’t help feeling, however, that the anonymous spokesman was either desperate or indulging in ironic humour.

This is clearly a case of describing things as they should be, rather than as they are, but so far YPG was realistic and their only option is to reconcile with Assad more completely. The status of Chechen republic in RF and Kurdish region in Iraq (after they retreated from the oilfields outside the region and from independence they remain very autonomous) are templates to follow, except that YPG probably needs to be shielded against Turkey, for a price that will be settled. I guess Russia refrained from giving “red light” for two reasons. One is that YPG had to… Read more »

If confirmed, Erdogan plan is in deep s**t!
Anyway, he’s still into “Assad must go” BS, this means that YPG and SAA have serious interest at teaming together as both their asses are on the line.
Now an interesting point being… YPG is NOT SDF, hehe! It can create interesting situation where the Yanks go on supplying armament and ammos to SDF when actually these end turned on Turkish invaders…

It seems to me that this is too late for the kurds (USA-puppets). One needs to wait until Turkey finish its invasion-operation in this area.
