Local activists confirmed that a Russian military convoy – comprising of 2 tanks, 4 armored vehicles, a pickup truck and a van – has entered the city of Afrin.

Last week, Russian military vehicles carrying Russian and Syrian Army officers were seen roaming the city of Afrin.

The agreement comes days after the Kurdish forces agreed on handing over several villages to the west of Manbij to the Syrian government forces.

  1. The Russian Czar just invented the human shield 2.0 for Kurdish SDF.

    The Sultan will not be amused about the Czars trick.

    p.s. Maybe the Czar should use it against IDF planes too.

    • Actually, having US troops embedded with YPG/SDF serves this purpose already for a while…
      Tsar Vlad didn’t vetoed the disarmament (AKA dismantlement) of Hezbo military branch @UNSC…If he summoned Israel’s ambassador, it’s because Russians weren’t warned to BOHICA, not because they acted, nevertheless, they’re pretty cautious, they have their reputation of the lowest collateral damaging army on Earth, Russian soldiers weren’t in harm’s way. Now, my advice is that we have smth very concerted between the two here 😀
      Many haters will be very disappointed in the region : there is simply no stable model feasible without Israel.
