BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – The Syrian government and Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have begun high-level meetings over the ongoing Turkish threat in the northern part of the country.

According to a source in the capital city, a delegation from the Syrian Democratic Forces traveled to Damascus to meet with the Syrian government about the Turkish military’s upcoming operation east of the Euphrates.

The SDF delegation reportedly arrived at the Mezzeh Airport via helicopter on Thursday.

The source said that the two sides agreed that the Turkish invasion of northern Syria is a direct threat to Syria’s sovereignty, but no deals have been made.

He would add that they are still in talks about jointly controlling the crossings along the Turkish border.

The Kurds are making new options for themselves, delaying the inevitable whilst awaiting to see what Trump is really going to do…

The Syrian Army and Kurds have shed blood against the same enemy several times during this conflict. With the US (supposedly) out of the picture and exposing themselves as the snakes they are the Kurds and the Syrian Government don’t have an elephant in the room with their negotiations. Both sides will need to make concessions and while they don’t need to like each other I think the two sides can coexist.

Back stabbing was done by the Kurd’s agents the rightful people of the land. Just like the Jews did to Palestine.

What did the U.S. expect they invited the Russians in Syria to fight isis. When the Russians and their proxies use merciless massive bombings of the cities regardless of the civilian casualties and just over whelm isis with massive fire power they retake around 2/3 of Syria then asks the U.S. to leave because we are blocking the so called peace process.

@J. Jesus Ramirez, exactly. The CAR project proved that US, Gulf and Turkish military supplies passed out to so called vetted moderates fuelled the Jihadi and even IS arms supplies.

Hi headupass. The US invited Russia? On which planet? Russia was invited by the legitimate Syrian government, the US was not. Do you still think it’s a ‘civil war’?

@Little warm some, my deluded friend, the US did not invite Russia. The US doesn’t own Syria and has no right to invite any one. The massive bombing against IS were in Raqqa and East Syria and done by the US. It was the IS that abused the towns and civilians as fortifications and human shields. So I do not blame the US much. But I blame You because You seem not to remember the facts. The US peace process was supplying Jiahdi with arms. I know the US were not alone and did that together with their Gulf friends… Read more »
