BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:07 A.M.) – A Free Syrian Army (FSA) leader has claimed that after the fight with ISIS in northern Aleppo, they will focus on fighting Syrian government forces and insinuating the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) as well.

Al-Baz, leader of the Turkmen-majority Sultan Murad Mahmoud Brigade of the FSA, stated that “after IS [ISIS] the next fight for his Turkish-backed forces will be the regime & “separatist forces”.”

Al-Baz, leader of the Turkmen-majority Sultan Murad Mahmoud Brigade of the FSA, stated that “after IS [ISIS] the next fight for his Turkish-backed forces will be the regime & “separatist forces”.”

In the past, the YPG have said they seek to federalize Kurdish-controlled areas of northern Syria or to seek independence.

However, most curiously is that the Euphrates Shield Operation, in which the Turkmen Brigade who are named after an Ottoman Sultan is a part of, have no front line with ISIS.

BBC Journalist Quentin Sommerville, who reported illegally from militant-held areas of northern Aleppo countryside, conducted interviews with fighters from FSA battalions, in which all are aligned to jihadist groups like Ahrar al-Sham in this part of Syria.

He also revealed that the Sultan Murad Mahmoud battalion, who have neo-Ottoman ideology that seeks to annex northern Syria to Turkey, lost over 500 militants fighting ISIS in the northern Aleppo town of Al-Bab.

The Turkish-led forces eventually took the contested town after making a deal for an ISIS withdrawal.

Indeed, this psychpath was sentenced and put in jail in both Syria and Turkey before. He was let loose by Recip Erdogoat to form that murderous gang which is even more cruel than Daesh.

Erdogan has been ‘sitting on the fence’ for so long that he must be agitated by all the splinters in his a**e. 🙂

“In the past, the YPG have said they seek to federalize Kurdish-controlled areas of northern Syria or to seek independence” – FAKE NEWS. YPG have never said any such thing. Perhaps you are referring to the civilian population of Northern Syria, who already govern themselves in a federal structure? PS it is not “Kurdish”.

So are the Americans going to defend the Kurds or not?
They can’t expect the Kurds to do the hard work against ISIS and then stand by as the Turks and their proxies attack them.
