Aleppo, Syria (11:53 P.M.) – As Islamic State terrorists continue their mass retreat from northeastern Aleppo to consolidate their defense lines around the key city of Al-Bab, the largest ISIS stronghold in Aleppo province, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) is engaged in a hasty race with the Turkish-backed FSA jihadist conglomeration (includes Faylaq Al-Sham, Sultan Murad, Jabhat Al-Shamiyah, and Ahrar Al-Sham) over eating up the abandoned villages in the aforementioned corner of the province.

Backed by coalition airstrikes, Turkish artillery, and Turkish Special Forces, the Islamist rebels managed to seize half a dozen villages without engaging in a single firefight until clashing with advancing SDF militants. After a short battle, the SDF managed to grasp the town of Amarinah north of Sajur river from the clutches of the FSA as Vice President Biden threatened the YPG with halting US support if Kurdish forces do not retreat east of the Euphrates.

As Turkish artillery rains fire on SDF positions north of Manbij, clashes between the two camps are expected to intensify and extend over more fronts in the troubled province. Meanwhile, Kurds in Hasakah are engaged in a massive battle against the Islamic State terror group as the latter attempts to advance on the strategic city of Shaddadi.

The US threw the Kurds under the table to win back Turkish support?

NOT E.U. interests at all… In fact it’s even AGAINST E.U.interests and E.U. has a stronger economy than the U.S.

I think the US used the Kurds to attempt and seal the whole Northern Syria, even expelling the SAA from hasakah and qamishli if necessary, but the turks were having none of that and decided to intervene themselves. Now the US needs another excuse to keep their investment in the middle east afloat.

The deal was the Kurds get control east of the Euphrates. For a stateless people it is a very good deal. Problem is Kurds naturally want more land while Turks want to limit border with Kurdish region to limit YPG.

So the US flipflopped, and is supporting Turkey in containing the Kurds. The Kurds who the US was using as their main force on the ground to fight ISIS in order to secure some kind of legacy for the Obama administration. Seems the Kurds have their own ambitions, and it doesn’t involve being pushed at gun point in the direction of Raqqa and Mosul so Obama can claim he single-handedly created and then defeated Daesh. The Kurds have done all the dying, while the US has claimed all the victories. Time for the Kurds to just stop fighting for the… Read more »
