DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6:50 P.M.) – Russian military will set up a new base in the Kurdish-held district of Afrin in northern Syria as per an agreement held earlier with People’s Protection Units (YPG)

A source from the YPG – who spoke on the condition of anonymity – said an agreement was concluded last yesterday between the Kurdish forces and Russian military to establish a base in the village of Kafr Jannah.

The base in intended to protect the district of Afrin, added the same source without mentioning further details.

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.

This is good news.This will prevent Turkey from attacking this area and thwart any attempts USA regime may have of partitioning Syria so that they can build a pipeline from saudia arabia through Syria

You mean Obama and McCain’s attempts. There is no regime in the US. only Trump, who’s a Russian ally.

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.

A smart step by Russia to counter the US and israels infiltration of the Kurds. It may stop the zionist agression in the northern areas….
