SDF

DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:35 P.M.) – The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) might go on an alliance with Syrian President Bashar Assad in order to repel the Turkish military in northern Syria.

“We are considering a partnership with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, with the aim of fighting Turkish forces”, the Commander-in-Chief of the Syrian Democratic Armed Forces, Mazlum Abdi, said.

In an interview with NBC News, Abdi stated that keeping an eye on ISIS prisoners is no longer a priority for SDF as most fighters guarding the prisons and camps have been deployed to the borders to fend off the Turkish invasion.

“Monitoring ISIS prisoners imprisoned in Syria is a ‘second priority’ now that the United States has paved the way for a Turkish attack that is likely to target our forces along the border,” Abdi added.

Of the 12000 ISIS militants detained in SDF prisons and camps, only 2000 of them are foreign mercenaries while the rest are Syrian and Iraqi nationals.

This comes a few hours after US President Donald Trump announced withdrawal of US forces from northern Syria as Turkish military prepares full invasion.

“Frankly, this makes us disappointed. The decision harms Syrian trust in the United States and the credibility of the United States”, Abdi commented.

The Turkish Army has made all necessary preparations for their upcoming invasion of northern Syria, aiming at “eradicating Kurdish terrorist groups which pose a threat to Turkey’s national security”.

In response, The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have allegedly deployed a massive force in northern Al-Raqqa this weekend after reports about a new Turkish military operation east of the Euphrates.

Question! Where have you been all those months? Why didn’t reach an agreement with the legit Syrian government by now? Oh, I almost forgot USA was behind your back. Now, when Uncle Sam leaves you alone you are reaching to the “Syrian Regime” as you call the legit Syrian Government. Pure childish behavior. Pure Kurds…

Last time Trump talked of pulling out of Syria the SDF made overtures too Assad to come back to the fold. As soon as Trump changed his mind and increased troops the SDF immediately cuddled back up to the US. It makes sense for them to get back together with the SDF getting an autonomous or semi region and Syria getting control of the oil fields instead of killing each other.

Agreed.
Or, what’s going to happen in Syria is what happened in N. Cyprus. The Turks arrive under some pretense of saving the locals and then never leave.

El papel de EE.UU. siempre ha sido así, utilizar y luego desechar, tenemos un ejemplo, utilizar a los Talibanes para expulsar a URSS y ahora considerarlos enemigos.

The morons should have agreed to work with Damascus long time ago. Also I don’t think 2000 of captured ISIS scum is foreign, there has to be more unless most of them are dead. Not saying there’s no traitors.

The SDF are the latest people who have not learnt the lesson that The Empire routinely throws its ‘allies’ to the wolves. The SDF are in a very dodgy position of their own making.
