BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:55 P.M.) – The Syrian government has rejected the Kurdish PYD’s proposal to restore state institutions in the Afrin Canton, a source in Damascus told Al-Masdar News this afternoon.

According to the source, the PYD offered to raise the flag of the Syrian Arab Republic over their buildings and to restore state institutions in exchange for their continued support in the Afrin Canton.

However, the government rejected the proposal after the PYD refused to allow Syrian security forces inside the Afrin Canton.

The government fears that accepting this proposal will leave their institutions at the mercy of the Kurdish security forces, who have harassed their employees in other regions of the country, including in the northeastern cities of Hasakah and Qamishli.

Acception of joint administration of Afrin by Kurds and the sole legitimate Syrian government should be the only condition. If the Kurds accept that, then an alliance could be forged between the two forces against a common enemy. Otherwise, no deal. You cannot hide behing the recognized Syrian state flag simply for convenience, to reder any Turkish invasion illegal. You need to genuinely return to the fold pf the Syrian state allowing Surian government security forces to jointly defend the city.

This is foolish. The Kurds are offering recognition of the Syrian government in Kurdish controlled areas.
They are unlikely to continue harassment of Syrian government offices in Hasakah if they rely on Syria for defence against Turkey in Afrin.
They will be only too happy to welcome Syrian forces once the Turks get going . . .

The kurds think that this is a smart move, but Syrians are not fools, they know what these traitors ultimate goal is.

Turds betrayed Syria when they stormed Hasakah, after being harassing Syrian Army, NDF, Christian militiamen… for months. Now they cry like babies ’cause Ottomans are going to smash them, so f*ck them & leave them alone, unless they agree to the total transfer of power (authorities, social services, troops, etc…) to the legit owner, the Syrian government & Army. Simple as that.
