The armed Kurdish-led coalition that compromises the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) has commented on the US’ decision to withdraw its troops from Syria, calling the move “a stab in the back,” Sky News Arabia reported on Wednesday, citing an SDF representative.

“This is a betrayal and a stab in the back,” Sky News Arabia cited the SDF representative as saying.

At the same time, The National newspaper reported that Kurdish forces had not received notice regarding US President Donald Trump’s move to pull American troops from Syria.

The US State Department has not yet commented on the announcement.

Earlier in the day, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement that the US was moving on to the next phase of its campaign in Syria against the Daesh* terrorist group, adding that Washington will continue to work with its allies to fight the radical organisation.

Prior to that, US President Donald said in a Tweet that the Daesh terror group has been defeated in Syria, stressing that this was the only reason for the United States to be in the Arab Republic during his presidency.

Kurds one simple advise from me. Wake up and stop being prostitutes to the Gringos, just kick them out of Syria. Form a coalition with the Syrian Government. Russians immediately will step up and protect you from the Sultan with no even one Kurd injured. You will have your autonomy as a part of the whole Syria. And most important: YOU WILL BE SAFE!

Please, educate yourself and learn what exactly happened in Afrin. Russians asked Kurds in Afrin to become part of Syria, to allow Syrian Government to govern Afrin. They refused, so Russians told them: “Then you are on your own” and they pulled out from Afrin. Just 3 days after that the Sultan attacked and we know what happened. So, please, stop with this betrayal.

More likely USA is the betrayal now. Educate yourself what happened last week. Erdogan and Trump signed agreement Turkey to buy Patriot and Turkey to NOT buy Russian S400. So, USA in this case must leave Syria and the Kurds. This is what happened. USA is the betrayal. What’s going to happen now is Russians will give green light to the Syrian Army to attack Idlib, so the Sultan to not have enough man power to attack fully the Kurds in North-East Syria. In the mean time Russians will speak again with the Kurds and hopefully Kurds will accept the… Read more »

Russian and Syrian forces have moved into YPG held areas to create a buffer zone for their protection in the past but of course you knew that but just wanted to come here and stir the pot. Go and salivate over your MSM bulldust . Nothing human about a dickhead.

So this is practically a green light for Erdogan to begin his offensive. Similarly I bet Erdogan made a deal with Russians for SAA’s offensive on Idlib. Well, we’ll see soon…

I’m not sure why the Mass Medias don’t tell this but a couple of days ago Erdogan and Trump signed a contract Turkey to buy American Patriots instead of Russian S400 and USA to leave Syria and the Kurds. Sultan will attack the Kurds within a month for sure. Kurds bet on the wrong horse…

When has the MSM ever told the truth if it doesn’t fit their agenda narrative.

Maybe should you read twice : there is no ongoing Patriot order.
DSCA (Defense Security Cooperation Agency) has just PROPOSED a $3.5bln Patriot deal yesterday and gave the green light would Turkey want to buy these. It’s a bit different from what you are writing.

Maybe you could be right but if erdogan leaves al nusra to the syrians and russians then he has got trouble coming,also remember that eastern euphrates is VERY important to syrias survival because of the oil,cant see them giving it to erdogan!! Still its another angle that you have come up with and something to think about.

How many people over the years have been telling the Kurds that this is what would happen and they are surprised. Don’t they remember the first Iraq war when they were invited to attack Saddam and then the US turned around and left them to their fate. Turned their back on Assad but soon they will be kissing his feet requesting protection from the Turkish forces..

In my opinion the Syrian exercise should not support the Turkish offensive, because after the Kurds this madman of the president of Turkey will attack Damascus.

Bashar Assad never supported any Turkish offensive in Syria. However, since 2014 Kurds became nuts about their Rojava in Syria. That’s what messed up everything since 2014…

If kurds hadnt joined the rediculous sdf thing with the u.s. then this “war” would of been all but finished, isis certainly would of long been fertilizer and the turks would be in idlib with no direction to turn, this current situation is totally the kurds fault and they need to accept it and beg assad for forgivness.

You stabbed Syria in the back allying with a foreign occupier to try and wage your wars against your own brothers and sisters “US envoy to Syria James Jeffrey says America will use and turn on its own creations when it is convenient for them.” https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/us-military-support-for-sdf-not-long-term-envoy/

From what I know of Erdegon, he will first try to destroy the Kurdish forces, then attack the regime’s forces. This is the time for the Syrian exercise to join the SDF before it is too late.
