DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:35 P.M.) – On Monday, Kurdish activists published photos depicting arrival of Russian military units to Afrin canton which is situated in the northwestern part of Aleppo province.

As it can be seen on the pictures below, a convoy of Russian military police has arrived to a rural area in the aforementioned region:


The activists claim that Russian military command in Syria and commanders of Afrin’s People’s Protection Units (YPG) reached an agreement, by the terms of which a Russian military installation will be established in Afrin canton near the Turkish border. According to local sources, this agreement is intended to prevent Turkish Army from attacking YPG positions in the region.

Meanwhile, the US military vehicles have been spotted in the city of Qamishli in northeast Syria, where they perform the same patrol duties along the Turkish border:

Earlier, Al-Masdar News reported on the arrival of a large US military convoy that entered Syria from Iraq.
Russian Ministry of Defense and Pentagon are yet to comment these activities of Russian and US troops, respectively. However, it is obvious that Kurdish forces have now gained support and protection from both US (in the east) and Russia (in the west), which should prevent further Turkish aggression in north Syria.

I understand the presence of Americans on the Turkish border to protect their short-term interests with the Kurds but what the Russians do there if they were totally unable to protect their Syrian allies against the Turks at the very beginning of their invasion of Syrian territory?

Terry : Assad called Putin for help only in Sept.2015 when the Daesh roaches began to really invade Syria and the US let them do while they would have had it easy to liquidate their convoys in the desert.

Actually, those helping the Kurds since day 1 of the daeshit are Germany and France, not the US which only began just before the unsuccessful 1st push to Raqqa then YPG crossed the… Read more »
