DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:50 P.M.) – A senior Kurdish official stated that YPG forces will not take part in the prospected offensive on Idlib province expected to launched soon.

“While the probability of a military campaign in the city of Idlib and its surroundings increases, some media outlets has been speaking about participation of our forces in this operation. This kind of allegation is mere speculation and is far from the truth”, the statement released by YPG press office read.

The statement confirmed that Kurdish forces’ main battle is to eradicate the Islamic State from eastern Syria.

“As the People’s Defense Units (YPG) and Women’s Defense Units (YPJ), we assure the public that our forces are continuing their hard struggle against the ISIS terrorist organization and are determined to root it out from northeastern Syria”, it added.

The statement also vowed to carry on the fight against the Turkish military and its proxies currently occupying Afrin region.

“We continue our legitimate and rightful struggle against the Turkish invasion army that declares its presence in Afrin as lawful and against the ISIS terrorist organization, supported by the invader Turkish state. Likewise, we confirm that there is no presence of our forces in Idlib”.

If they help at cleansing Afrin and al-Bab, it’d already help a lot…

Think! Kurds were expelled by Turkish Army from Afrin. It would make more sense if they want to go back and get that area. However, they know very well they are not capable doing this alone. They need help. So, here is a perfect opportunity for them to go back and together with the Syrian Army to get back in their homes. Big question is why they do this nonsense to NOT want to go and fight for Afrin again? Only one logical explanation is someone is telling them NOT to do this, NOT to cooperate with the Syrian Army… Read more »

Let’s think logically. Kurds were expelled by terrorists with the help of the Turkish Army from Afrin. It would make more sense if Kurds want to go back and get that area. However, they know very well they are not capable doing this by them. They need help. USA would never help them fight against Turkey (after all Turkey is more important for USA as NATO member than Kurds). So, here is a perfect opportunity for Kurds to go back and together with the Syrian Army to get back in their homes. Big question is why they obviously do this… Read more »
