BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:14 P.M.) – Despite differences in the past between the Syrian Army and the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a new understanding between them has been established in the face of a common Turkish threat.

ANNA News has captured footage of the Syrian Army, SDF and Russian officers all dancing together upon meeting each other.

The meeting took place as they met at the line of defense in Manbij district.

Earlier today, the Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglure affirmed that the Euphrates Shield forces were to expel Kurdish militants from Manbij: “We will attack the YPG (red. SDF) in Manbij … We will free Manbij from the yoke of terror.”

  1. Hermanos Musulmanes considerado terrorista en Egipto y Erdogan pertenece a ese grupo, por tanto los terroristas invasores tienen que ser expulsados por los patriotas Sirios.

    • Actually, AKP=M.Brotherhood and Erdogollum shall be ousted from power in Turkey. The alleged ‘coup’ in Turkey last July was the 1st time ever I wished the militaries take control of a country. Moreover, Turkish constitution says militaries shall overthrow the govt if the govt violates constitution, so does AKP.

  2. Happy days are ahead indeed. I used to be one of the biggest critics of the Kurds but they are proving themselves to be not so bad. Perhaps the SDF can control all of the Daesh lands north of the Euphrates will the SAA takes the South. I feel like this alliance of two Secular and patriotic groups will be the best future for Syria. I am glad the SDF are proving to be friendly to the legitimate government and not hostile.

    • At the difference of Bazrani in Iraq, they never vowed independence, just either a federal state or autonomous status and BTW, they already de facto have it.
      Now let’s just hope that Syrian MP and Dr.Assad will understand this is the very interest of the country to maintain its unity even if some changes have to be made and that the old-school Haafez-like autocracy is not viable any more.
      It’s not too much about Bashar that I have concerns as he tried to democratise Syria many time but faced strong opposition from Ba’ath party hardliners and pushing into such a direction would simply have ended with him to be removed and replaced with a very ugly Saddam-style hard liner which is not the interest of the country.

    • The Sultan leaves them no political choice but patriotism. They share Syria’s secularism and not the Barzani statelet’s ideology. So IMHO currently they have friendly. Nothing bind more than a common foe.

  3. Let’s not be romantic. The kurds can’t be trusted. Remember what they did in 2016 in Hasaka. If an alliance should take place between SAA and the kurds, then the SAA should expect to be betrayed again by them soon
