BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:15 P.M.) – Having arrived in Afrin just one day ago, Syrian government troops of the National Defence Forces (NDF) are now taking up frontline positions alongside allied Kurdish paramilitary fighters at certain locations within the region to fend-off potential attacks by the Turkish Army and its proxy militias.

Reports state that NDF troops took up positions near the small city of Jandaris in Afrin’s southwest. The soldiers belong to the first wave of Syrian government intervention forces to enter the region on Tuesday.

At the same time the first batch of government units took up frontline positions on Wednesday, a second column of NDF reinforcements mobilized at the Az-Zahraa checkpoint (inside territory controlled by Damascus).

In the last couple of hours, these second wave forces have entered into Afrin and are now en-route to the regional capital (the city of Afrin) after which they’ll be tasked with defending a certain frontline area.

It sure would be nice to know the actual terms of this agreement. It’s the Syrians right to do whatever, but I sure hope it nips the US plans in the bud.
