With Turkish air and artillery strikes killing 20 civilians in Jeb el-Kussa, just 14km south of Jarabulus in northern Aleppo province, a host of villages have been captured by the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Turkey-backed Islamist proxies from the Kurdish YPG-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

After two days of clashing in Amarnah, the FSA have captured the village from SDF. Along with this, the FSA captured Ain al-Bayda that lays just 10km south of Jarabulus.

The FSA have claimed it also has control of Qusa and Balaban villages laying 14.5km south of Jarabulus. If this claim proves correct, it would mean that the Free Syrian Army and the Islamist proxies control 1/3rd of territory north of Sajur River.

Good pattern for SDF to make a pincher movement and help those terrorist to meet Allah. SyAAF should highly consider acting there or helping by giving some SAMs (I mean real ones, not ManPADS c**p!) as these are the same scumbaggs they face in Aleppo : even Na’al Dine al-Zinki are in Jarablus… If SAA doesn’t want to find themselves taken in a vice in Aleppo soon, they should really consider that they’re targetted too, even Da’ish regrouping in al-Bab seems to be a threatening situations, especially now we’re sure they’re accomplice with the turkishlamist regime…

The Kurds shouldnt have the SAA attacked in the eastern Region before. That was a failure. Also the USA is not a thrustful partner as you can see.

It lays in the hands of the Kurds to talk to the Syrian government and their allies, espacially the Russians that they help them with advanced weapons.This can only happen, if they can gain thrust again and stay in peace with the Syrian Government and Russia. It is not to late.

The goals are clear now, thanks to FSA explanations : take Manbij and al-Bab…
Then you can be sure that they’ll attack Aleppo from the other side!
SyAAF, RuAF and SAA should better consider to not let SDF fighting the invasion alone : Da’ish are simply changing their clothes for FSA as they already did 2 years ago, changing FSA clothes for Da’ish!
Aleppo and Syria are in GREAT DANGER!

Los Kurdos deben considerar la alianza con los Rusos es la mejor alternativa, no olvidemos que EE.UU. juega a a favor de los Turcos y estos apoyan a los terroristas para derrocar al gobierno Sirio, también vemos que los terroristas de ISIS no puso ninguna resistencia a sus similares Turcos, al contrario permitió y dio todas las facilidades para atacar a los Kurdos…
Conclusión, ISIS, y otros terroristas incluyendo al gobierno Turco de Erdogan son la misma cosa.
