BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:15 P.M.) – A commander of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) revealed in a newspaper interview that his militia aims to fight in Idlib province once Raqqa is captured from ISIS.

YPG General Commander Sipan said that the focus after defeating ISIS would be on the al-Nusra Front and other jihadi groups operating out of militant-held Idlib.

With the phone interview given to Al-Hayat newspaper, he also emphasized how Tabqa Dam operation was held off with a four hour ceasefire so engineers an work on repairing it, as Al-Masdar News explained yesterday.

The commander of the YPG stressed that his militia can cooperate with Russia to work towards “the Kurdish issue in Syria.” The just solution should be on the basis of the federal system in Syria, and Raqqa should be a part of this system with the new local Council.”

If true this is huge! Looks like ISIS demise is on the horizon and when that happens peace in Syria is at hand!

I sincerely hope Syrian government (Assad) and Kurds (YPG) can agree on some form of federation of Syria and make alliance between each other. With SAA and YPG menpower and support from Russua and USA Jihadists from Idlib can be defeated in few months to a year.

Only problem here is Turkey and Saudi regime which won’t let go Syria since they invested a lot of money…

Assad must stay

Es la única alternativa para no prolongar el sufrimiento del pueblo Sirio, me atrevo a decir si llega a concretarse el acuerdo, Erdogan sería el gran perdedor y EE.UU. miraría con cautela a Siria y al mismo YPG.

this is what I’ve been hoping for all the time – secular forces uniting & up to some kind of modus vivendi, maybe even to a common way to a civilized constitution, setting an end to this nightmare of violence & idiocy.

Si desean luchar en Idlib, que sea para cerrar la frontera y aislar a los mercenarios de Erdogan para cortar suministros, armas y hombres que ingresan libremente desde Turquía. Una ves aislado terminarían igual que ISIS.
