BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:50 A.M.) – The Syrian government and Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have agreed to work together in order to repair the Tabaqa Dam in the western countryside of Al-Raqqa.

According to a report from the government, Damascus sent a group of engineers to repair the turbines at the Tabaqa Dam after an agreement was put in place.

The report added that the government and SDF have also agreed to share the electricity generated by the Tabaqa Dam in the future.

This deal comes just weeks after the U.S. Coalition attacked the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) just south of the Tabaqa Dam in southwestern Al-Raqqa.

Once the thing is fixed, they will not need the gov for anything and will likely take all the power for own usage or for sale at exorbitant prices. Why share when they won`t have to?! Someone could even pull-off a false incident, blame the gov, and use it as pretext to end the deal. After all, it is not K’s who are in charge of such decision-making anyway. Those who are certainly don’t wish for a post war Sy with oil exporting capacity. The fact that hydro power frees up its oil for export will not be easily overlooked.… Read more »

“K’s already control 60% of Sy’s pre-war oil production, 90% of hydro power assets, and majority of grain and cotton production.”
=> Yeah, enough to lever in order to have SAA collaborate with them against the Turks+Qaedan-proxies which anyway, want to walk over Damascus.
We have exactly things going the way I analysed Putin has cooked his plan : Rojava and Syria have to team or they’re both fucked 😉

Chauhan-chauhan is in the old enemy propaganda mode, we all know. Well, If Kurds were not there SAA wasnt even near Al Bab as well as Tabqa. SDF are not blocking anything. Those SSA troops could hardly take Tabqa, the Dam and certainly not Raqqa. DEir El Zor from there is far out. There is no blocking. You are far out. If they asked nice, they probatly could use Tabqa roundabouts and even the the railroad. But they have no logistics and tropps for it. If they tryed to take ISIS first, they would be defeated fast. This SAA force… Read more »
