The question is, when will SAA G*****n act!????
Those filthy Turkish Takfiri invaders are already basically capturing parts of Northern Syria for their Syrian Turkmen parasite proxies. I know SAA is busy in Idlib but losing Afrin to those animals will further expose Syria to Turkish aggression.

The SAA can easily act without using its forces. For instance, they can hand over some anti air defense systems or artillery to the Kurds. However, they are scared that if it’s known that they supported the Kurds, Turkey would have a motive to directly battle the SAA which would be devastating considering the SAA has already deployed tens of thousands of troops to idlib operation.
