BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – The U.S. has allegedly thwarted Russia’s attempt to form a new force that resembles the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in northeastern Syria, the Turkish state-owned Anadolu Agency said on Thursday, citing ‘sources’ in Al-Hasakah.

“Russia was trying to recruit insurgents from local militias in Amuda and Tel Tamer towns, which are occupied by the YPG/PKK terror group, said the sources requesting anonymity due to fear of reprisal,” the Anadolu Agency said.

According to the publication, the U.S. forces quickly took action to prevent the creation of this new group; they allegedly warned the locals on several occasions against accepting the Russian offer.

“The source also said the U.S. warned people that ‘Russia will use those who join their ranks as mercenaries in Libya,'” the Anadolu Agency said.

The publication claimed that  Russia gave up on this plan because the number of applications to join the military units was under 100.

The Russian Ministry of Defense has yet to comment on these claims by the Turkish state media.

This article is a load of rubbish. The US do not try very hard to make their story credible any more.
Viva Assad. US/NATO/LGBT/Israel/Saudi going down bad.

You’re LGBT, you still just ignore it! Real heteros don’t give a fück about LGBT : male gays are no competition when it comes to shag girls and lesbian women are near all bisexual. All those I met who used to went public against the LGBT community they all ended to finally become known as prominent members of this community. You’ll end just like ’em, period! If you weren’t, you’d definitively wouldn’t speak about the subject at all! It must be hard for you to have grown in a culture that calls them freaks, but don’t worry, there are progresses.… Read more »

You’re full of it as always, and fortunately I’m here to destroy your mediocre propaganda job. Those behind the mess in Syria are all those who funded, organized, trained, harbored, covered and helped the myriad of jihadi hordes trying to topple the secular Syrian government on top of occasionally striking the SAA themselves when it became clear that using their proxies alone wasn’t enough anymore. That means : Israel : first in line as usual when it comes to destabilizing neighbors ! holder of the most distinguished anti-Syria Prize, by near officially allowing ISIS and several well-known Sunni Al-Qaeda linked… Read more »

PS : please grow a little dignity and don’t try to pose as a progressive while you are obviously part of everything that is wrong in France on that level as well (if you haven’t gone to your hometown in Israel to be close to your relatives during the confinement), that makes you all the more laughable. Hysterically fixating on the acronym and frenetically dedicating a whole paragraph to it shows crystal clear how its mention alone hurt your far-right, ignorant and racist feelings big time, you moronic simpleton. You being homophobic on top of your other mediocrities indeed is… Read more »
