Turkey warns Damascus
Feb 20, 2018 debka - Turkey warns Damascus not to send troops to Afrin in NW Syria to help the Kurds. Kurd YPG spokesman Nouri Mahmoud denied reaching an agreement with Syria. Putin wants a summit with Turkey and Iran. Russia warned the USA support for Syrian Kurds is playing with fire.
Afrin is SYRIA. Its a small Kurd area north of Aleppo and Idlib, south of Turkey. Afrin is west of Manbij where U.S. troops are based. The US military has set up a military base in Manbij in Aleppo province to protect Kurds from Turks.
Syrian Kurds deny Afrin deal with Damascus for the Syrian army to enter the Afrin region to help repel Turks. There is no agreement with Syria on Afrin. There is only a call from us for the Syrian army to come in and protect the borders. The kurds are decent people that are being abused and now slaugthered.
During the 8 hellish 0bamayears I liked Putin. He seemed strong and wise. If he is going to side with Turks against Kurds, Israel and/or USA, Russia will again be viewed as an enemy.
The Kurds deserve a country of their own.
Cut out land from Iran, Syria and Turkey for Kurdistan.
Kurds are reliable allies.
I think there is a LOT of game playing in Syria.
I believe Syria President Assad favors Kurds and U.S. troops guarding the northern border. Assad wants his Christians back in Syria, he had protected them until 0bama started that conflict.
