BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 A.M.) – The political wing of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) is going to open offices in several provinces inside Syria, the Spokesperson of the SDF, Ilham Ahmad, said on Thursday.

According to Ahmad, the SDF’s political wing will be opening offices in the provinces of Latakia, Damascus, Hama, and Homs.

This move comes after another meeting between the Syrian government and Syrian Democratic Council (SDF) in northern Syria.

Earlier in the week, it was announced that the SDF and Syrian government would have joint control over the Tishreen Dam in western Al-Raqqa.

While some members of the SDC deny the government has reached out to mend relations, a source in Damascus told Al-Masdar this week that peace talks are going well.

This same source told Al-Masdar two weeks that the government and SDC reached an agreement in the Al-Hasakah Governorate that would allow for the former to eventually control the province.

Al-Masdar is awaiting a response regarding the latest claims by Ilham Ahmad’s comments.

Great development! If the Kurds choose and accept peace, than the war in Syria could be over by the end of this year! Daraa and Quintera are almost finished, and only At-Tanf and Idlib will be the last two pockets. Peace is on the horizon!

Before thinking about Peace, push out American Scoundrels from Syria.

I think we can have justified hope that Trump and Putin will be able to reach an agreement of the USA withdrawal from Syria.

SDF/YPG and SAA never fought each other.
There were some tiny clashes which are typical of any forces operating in very close areas, none ever escalated.
YPG means “people protection units”, it’s a popular movement created to protect populations from Daesh, not to figt the Syrian state.
Now it’s obvious that Syrian state had some unfriendly habits towards its Kurdish population and admitting some errors were done in the past won’t be damaging for the country, it’s even the contrary.

Faux et archi-faux: vous racontez n’importe quoi!
Les Kurdes que j’ai rencontrés quand je vivais en Syrie n’on jamais été agressés,. Ils avaient simplement la situation de peuple réfugié, avec un peu moins d’avantages que les Syriens d’origine.

True that they haven’t fought much, except some occasional clashes, but seeking a partition of the country, in spite of creating their own independent state is much of “unfriendly action”, I think, although I agree that if there were some “errors” admitting them, instead of ignoring them, is the true way. I would like to remind you that Afrin was lost to the Turks thanks to the Kurdish unwillingness to hand it over to the Syrian government.

Your ignorance is astonishing. Where do you get these absurd notions of “partition” or “state”? And as for your comment about Afrin, go to h**l.

@Pete, well the Kurds (who are in Syria after fleeing Turkey in 1920s) asking for autonomy is first step towards partition (see Iraq). Kurds claim a ‘Kurdistan’ made up of Syrian, Iraqi, Iranian and Turkish land. For Afrin, there is no doubt that the Kurds gave it to the Turks. The option was make a deal with Syria or give it to a foreign occupation, they chose the later, get used to it.

¿ Open office ? Kurds (SDF, USA-puppets) must be under control of Syria government. If Kurds want to be Siria people, they must obey Syria laws and regulations. Otherwise, they will face death and destruction.
