BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 P.M.) – The head of the Kurdish YPG forces in the Afrin Canton, Bahjat ‘Abdo, stated on Wednesday that all reports of his organization agreeing to allow the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) into this region are false.

‘Abdo’s comments come just hours after a Kurdish official told Al-Mayadeen TV that an agreement had been reached by the YPG and Damascus to allow the Syrian Army into the Afrin Canton.

The Syrian Army currently has no presence inside Afrin and previous negotiations with the YPG have failed because of Damascus’ insistence that their security forces be allowed into this region.

While Damascus continues to allow the YPG forces to use the roads within their territories, they have not taken part in any battle involving the Turkish-backed rebels and Kurdish forces.

It’d be the best way to thwart a Turkish invasion, because it’s Afrin, next Manbij, but Damascus is on the line too! The Ankarascal was clear about it!

You have not been paying attention, this is the best way for Turkey to clean up the FSA hold overs and the Kurdish problem for all involved except for the Kurds.

And who would want Turkey to clean uo the Kurdish problem that way?

Send the FSA against HTS in Idlip does the trick better.

This is Syria – if the Kurdish YPG are not working with the SAA, then the SAA, need to eradicate them. Russia will deal with Turkey.

So far YPG and SAA are fighting a common enemy. Why eradicate now?
