DAMASCUS, SYRIA (7:10 P.M.) – The Turkish-backed “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) and Jabhat Al-Shamiyah (Levantine Front) have managed to advance deep into the heart of the Al-Bab Plateau recently, after launching a massive offensive against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in the eastern Aleppo countryside.

According to the official media wing of Operation Euphrates Shield, the Turkish-backed rebels are now only 2km away from Al-Bab’s northern perimeter, leaving the Islamic State terrorists wedged between 3 different forces in east Aleppo.

As of recently in the east Aleppo countryside, the Free Syrian Army and their allies from the Levantine Front have captured the several villages, including Ku’afir, Waqlah, Hadath, Qediran, and Biratah after a short and violent battle with the Islamic State terrorists.

The advance by the Turkish-backed rebels in northern Aleppo leaves the Kurdish-led “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF) in a tough position because they are unable to link the two Rojava pockets.

With this scenario developing in eastern Aleppo, the Turkish-backed rebels and Syrian Democratic Forces could find themselves engulfed in a brutal war for control of this region.

Kurdish traitors should all get killed. They forget, who incited this war and who is financing this war. It is USA. And those traitors now fight under USA command? idiots. Turks should kill them all.

Boochkinist komrads (ecolo-anarchists) for YPG in Rojava. Just read Boochkin and you’ll understand. They don’t seem willing to cut ties with Syria but strongly consider a federal state. KRG is a bit different : Bazrani seems on the verge to become life-prez or king. Iraqi Kurdistan is very likely to do secession from Iraq. Rotschilds are mostly out of the game for a while, we’re not in XIXth century, baby! Only one in the family is a billionaire in $ and on the lowest of the list of billionaires. The major oil corps are Exxon, Shell, BP, Chevron, Conoco, Total… Read more »

Kurds can never populate that unreaslistic vision. Its fine with me, the fx get larger Rojavas more independent than the kind Assads has made by deporting them. To me the main issues are at least 2. 1) Isis are gone from tha map & 2) They get a weak Assad, which has to allow them having those 4 autonomes having the honor to say he is still a ruler of the whole Syria !! To me its obvius too few talk about how to make any peace. My wish for the kurds could be they all moved to there and… Read more »

“Kurds can never populate that unreaslistic vision” => There are “just” +40 millions Kurds. More than 20M living in Turkey, +1 quarter of population! “Or they made a rural development zone” => There is serious oil and gas in Kurdish populated areas in Syria, Iraq and Iran. “and could do their socialism” => PYD is not socialist at all! Even commies are right wingers in such a way of thinking! Don’t insult komrads by using such words! PYD is into Bookchinism, this is a branch of green anarchism also called ‘social ecology’ thus, they promote direct democracy instead of the… Read more »
