BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 P.M.) – The Kurdish authorities in the Afrin Canton of Aleppo called on the Syrian government of Bashar Al-Assad to defend the region from the attacking Turkish forces, the SBS News reported this evening.

According to the SBS News report, a report posted on the website for the Afrin authorities underscored the complexity of the Syrian war and the ongoing problems caused by the Turkish aggression in northern Syria.

 

“We call on the Syrian state to carry out its sovereign obligations towards Afrin and protect its borders with Turkey from attacks of the Turkish occupier … and deploy its Syrian armed forces to secure the borders of the Afrin area,” the statement said, as quoted by SBS News.

A similar report was released by Al-Mayadeen TV on Wednesday; however, it was later denied by the official media wing of the People’s Protection Units (YPG).

They have put themselves in this predicament by rejecting the Russian proposal to have the SAA be in control of Afrin. Now that they are getting what they should have known was coming, it’s all a different story and now the SAA should perform their sovereign duty?
