Afrin Self-Administration Blames Russia For Fall Of Afrin, Says New Phase Of Battle Begins

Othman Sheikh Issa, co-chair of the Afrin executive council reading the self-administration statement.

On March 18, the Kurdish self-administration in the Afrin area announced in an official statement that its forces will shift its strategy against the Turkish Army and the Free Syrian Army from a direct confrontation to guerrilla tactics.

“Our forces are present all over Afrin’s geography. These forces will strike the positions of the Turkish enemy and its mercenaries at every opportunity …Our forces all over Afrin will become a constant nightmare for them,” Othman Sheikh Issa, co-chair of the Afrin executive council, said in a televised statement, according to Reuters.

The Kurdish self-administration once again criticized Russia and accused it of “actively” participating in the Turkish attack on Afrin by “opening the [Syrian] airspace” for Turkey. The administration even said that Russia had “sacrificed the people for its interests in Syria.”

Russia had kept several units of its military police in the Afrin area for more than a year and participated in a long negotiation between the self-administration in the area and the Damascus government. However, the self-administration controlled by the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) had rejected all Russian suggestions over the course of the negotiations.

Local observers doubt that the Kurdish forces will be able to carry out any serious military operations against the Turkish Army in the Afrin area anymore. The Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) have fully collapsed in the area and withdrawn from the city of Afrin without a real fight.

    Fuck the kurds and long live Erdogan and the AKP ! Those same bullshit kurds who dared saying one week ago they wanted Europe to be turned into ashes : God bless you Recep ! Long live Syria and Turkey and deaths to the cockroaches of USA !

    • Julian Clegg

      When did Kurds say any such thing? Also, how can you at the same time support Syria and Turkey, which has for a long time been helping and arming terrorists in Syria and is now directly invading and occupying its territory?

    • Mahmoud HAm

      Erdogan is the one who supported and facilitated the arming and facilities for the terrorists in Syria. The Kurds are stupid and should blame themselves for their stupidity. Erdogan is a criminal but the Kurds are stupid

    • Robert Duran

      Let us not forget that without Turkeys active participation the West would have had a lot harder time destroying Syria and giving rise to the issues that we have today.So essentially turkey is fighting a problem that it created..

      • Suliman

        But Why ? Any of us ”Turkish Citizen” dont want create problem like this in Syria, Just our idiot government follow order from USA.

        Yes Erdoğan make stupid decision I cant forget that but for now, killing pkk members is right thing to do.

  • roberto silveira

    Kurds = stupids “K”owards. No deal with Russia, no land for stupids kurds.

    • jerry hamilton

      Stupid yes. Not sure I could call them cowards though.

      • as

        Their leadership is a cowards. They now following the US teaching in sitting on the comfortable chair inside the safest place they can find and denied any kind of failure from their part.

        • jerry hamilton

          I can’t really comment on their leaders other than to say they really are stupid.
          I was commenting about the average Kurdish fighter.

      • Hulusi Akar

        Yes they are cowards, they are bunch of overhyped terrorists. They said that the war will spread into Turkey, Afrin would be vietnam for Turkey etc. Not only that but they sent conscripts to fight the Turkish army. They blocked civilians from leaving, they burned their own houses, cars etc for propaganda purposes. Their leaders fled Afrin while conscripts were left behind to die. Yes thats the definition of cowards.

        • jerry hamilton

          If that is true and I think it is…. You are right.

  • Robert Duran

    This is funny.. All these idiots had to do was to hand over Afrin to the legitimate Syrian government..But nooo..Murica is on out side…

    • Sakaramanga

      has anyone thought about the fact that YPG (PKK) is under US control? They do what the boss ask them to.

      • Robert Duran

        Thats exactly what it is..

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      Idiots or traitors as they handed it over, to turkey? kurds they playing the game along with the uk/usrael, instructions. Watch what is about to happen then it be clearer.

  • jerry hamilton

    Will they never get it?
    This is Syria, not a Kurdish state.
    If they want a home, talk to the Syrian government.

    • velociraptor

      And as syria, ruskies has to defend syria against turks.

      • John Mason

        Not when you turn traitor which YPG did, then you are on your own then, which has become quite apparent.

        • velociraptor

          kurds are assads probolem, integrity of syria russian problem. IF IS ally of syria. if not, then …

    • as

      No they should talk to the EU-US or Israel. Ironically some of their USA brothers don’t like the fact that they’re Muslims and it’s part of their culture and identity.

  • Julian Clegg

    There is no point in blaming Russia. Russia is not obliged to help Syria at all, but it has been doing so at very high cost. Turkey is not a powerless country. It controls shipping access between the Black and Mediterranean seas. Therefore Russia has to avoid direct confrontation with Turkey.

    • Robert Duran

      Russia is in Syria to save the Syrian state…and what the Kurds were/are doing with the Americans is practically trying to tear up the state

    • velociraptor

      Ruusia IS obliged tohelp. The syrian civil war is beacuse Assad said NYET! to quatar pipeline! Russia owss hundreds and hundreds billions, tens of thousands lives of ruskie troops.

      • AJ

        Nope- the US should have helped the Kurds since both US & Turkey are in NATO & the Kurds are allies with the US.

        • velociraptor

          this is not about kurds. russia has nothing with kurds. russia MUST defend unity of syria. and not allow to foreign armies enter syria. the c-category kgb agent invited americans, invited turks. spit on such rat!

      • Alex

        nothing to do with pipeline, israel wanted to get rid of Assad because he’s anit-israel

    Well there was this – “Why does anyone believe that the Kurds deserve their own state? Their leaders are corrupt and have zero statesmanship.” – Syria – The Fall Of Two Cities – http://www.moonofalabama.org/2018/03/syria-the-fall-of-two-cities.html

  • Mahmoud HAm

    The Kurds have nobody to blame but themselves. They placed themselves in the US and Israeli interests in dividing Syria. They refused all attempts to make a deal with the Syrian government. They only cried for help from the Syrian government after they already messed up and lost to the backward and bastards Turks.
    If the Kurds are smart they should go quickly to the Syrian Government and make a deal and not rely on the US which will drop them once it finishes using them.

  • JEinCA

    Why would the Russians want to get bogged down fighting the Turks when a US assault on Syrian Government strongholds could start at any time? The Kurdish separatists made their own bed with the Americans. Now they can lay in it.

    • velociraptor

      Because allegedly Ru$$ia is ally of Syria. That means Had not agree with turkish invasion.

      • JEinCA

        A Russian Turkish conflict would be a dream come true for Washington and London.

        • velociraptor

          Then decide, either is russia strong or shitty. if is shitty weak country, shold go home!

          • JEinCA

            I’ve been studying the history of the Byzantine Empire. One of the lessons I’ve learned that even the strongest of nations with grand armies can stretch themselves too thin thus making themselves vulnerable to attack on other vital fronts.

          • velociraptor

            russia isolates itself. there is slow but sure decline of kazakhstan from russia and eurasian project. therefore finished with azbuka and will use latin alphabet. moreover, they will more cooperate with china than with russia. russia is shrinking, industry does not develope. within 1 generation russia will be slave of china.

I dont understand how you fucker still support the Parasites on this planet, who CLEARLY are dividing all people on this planet for there OWN. Its not like europe will have a good future, just look up how many people are running STILL to europe, you are a SLAVE yourself indoctrinated to hate the others even when they are clearly more like you, then any foreign demon master you serve. What do you think will happen even when they win against russia? You think everything will be better? No it will not the Masters will just abandon every east european country just like now but even more, there will be no freedom to you anymore everybody has to be a criminal to be still living a half decent live with food any electicity and warm water, every women in your street has to be working as a whore for people YOU will serve as a cock sucker too. The glorious days of any east european days are long gone but when wi wins, there will not be ANY east european human left. They will kill most of you, and enslave the rest sell all white girls abourt to mix with old man in bordels, you like that yeah?! You CUCK.

            Dear Friend, I also wish that the Western Democracies rule the whole world. Today is the major force but not 100 % because you have these medieval pockets that make war for ethnic and religious shit that we in the West have overcome long ago. You are right, Russia, some sort of a rogue medium size state, with dreams of becoming the brief 19th century Russian Empire or the late Soviet empire but there is no use they cannot accomplish that (fortunately) their population is shrinking and they are spending resources in futile causes like mass murderer assad. But I think they could be a second or third class power for maybe a decade, then as you said they will become more irrelevant. it is a pity because they are a Christian country and could help the West to clean the Middle East of religious fanatics and send the ottomans back to central asia or whatever caves they came from….

          • AJ

            The real rogue state is the US waging endless war across the globe not Russia. There are no western democracies – there is a US empire with vassal states controlled by globalist banster elites. The US will not tolerate any country it does not control – hence they are targeted for regime change or sanctions. You need to look at who the real enemy of humanity is.

          • nshah

            Well sad to say that it won’t happen as there is no will in the western people to support this type of war. Besides the Fleets would be wiped out so how is there going to be any war once that happens as it wouldn’t only be Russia as you left Iran and China. Now look at Japan and South Korea looking at peace talks with NPRK, things in Asia look bad and Hypersonic missiles are at least 4 times faster in the least. Seems as if the US and UK and the west will have a hard time selling the war to the public may even possibly have to cede defeat eventually.

          It is not a dream, it has always been !!! Turkey is one of the most important NATO member !, and it is completely doubtful that it acts by its own agenda, as Turkey pretend to make us to believe.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Misread your comment and thought you said “Turkey is one of the most impotent NATO member”! Best we work from that part easier to believe when you look at their weak and overrated army that needed proxies to fight it’s war. There is a lot of speculation on troop capabilities and Turkey like many others are way overrated , theory is all fine but real combat capabilities show in battle. Never really believed the Afrin conflict was a real battle after the US put a stop to YPG/YPJ helping out and allowed only volunteers to do all the fighting with no heavy weapons.

      • AJ

        Putin has made a good move with Afrin – by allowing the Turks to attack he has driven a wedge between the Kurds & their supposed allies the US. They can now see they are being used. The same will now happen with Manbij. Sure the Kurds are blaming Russia but they will also have to accept the US didnt help them

        • velociraptor

          bullshit.

          in huge amount die the citizens of “allied” syria

          • AJ

            True the kurds sold out to zio US who didnt stop the Turks attacking when they are both in NATO – explain that. The kurds wanted both the US as allies and also help from the SAA. They cant have both they need to choose

    • Redadmiral

      Looks like it already has in Al Kadam

    • Starlight

      In all the anti-Assad forums that cheered every attack on the Syrian government across the last 7 years, the same people are now cheering the turkish invasion of Syria, and delighting in the mass murder of the kurds.

      Now you are told by ZIONIST agents that operated in OUR forums for years that the atrocities of the turks are a “GOOD” thing too. What the zionist scum never point out is that Assad absolutely condemned the turkish invasion- but Putin slapped him down hard.

      So those cheering the turks, like the zionist JEinCA, are anti Assad and anti the Syrian government. By definition. By fact.

      Syria has many stupid and difficult ethnic groups, but most, like the kurds, are not mass murdering terrorists. To suggest, as JEinCA does, that the kurds “deserve” to be butchered like Hitler butchered slavs in East Europe is obscene to the highest degree- yet his comment was myseriously ‘upvoted’.

      Pro-turkish comment = pro-NATO comment = pro-Israel comment.

      • as

        Oh your choice of words is interesting. Butchered ? No they deserve their defeat by refusing to compromise with Syrian government. They want help they should asks their USA brothers.
        Both their greed and pride is their own downfall.

      • JEinCA

        Who’s cheering the Turks? The Turks are beyond duplicitous. My point is that the Russians can’t fight the Turks and Americans at the same time. There was hope that the Turks and Americans would fight each other in the North of Syria if you remember. I don’t wish harm to befall the Kurds. I don’t want to see the Kurds have to endure what the Armenians endured a 100 years ago. God forbid such a fate would befall the Kurdish people. However with that said the YPG put their own people in this predicament when they decided to carve out their own state from Syria with the help of the Americans. The Russians had nothing to do with that.

        As for your accusations out of nowhere that I am a Zionist anyone who is familiar with my comments here or anywhere knows that couldn’t be further from the truth. One cannot be sympathetic with Hezbollah and Palestinian freedom fighters and be a Zionist.

    • viktor ziv

          Now Russia, China, Iran and Pakistan could open their military bases in Jordan, Syria and Palestine and could arm and train Jordanian, Syrian and Palestinian army. They have not helped Jordanians, Syrians and Palestinians at the beginning to save their countries from US and Israeli migrants and this was a big mistake.
          Still they can open their military bases in Jordan, Syria and in Palestine if they want to protect their brother country from further human and land loses. Please don’t let US, UK and France brutal regimes to slaughter Syrians, Palestinians and occupy more Syrian and Palestinian land.

  • as

    But what about the USA ? Or SDF for that matter ? Joining the blame Russia bandwagon i see.

  • John Mason

    Difficult to understand the YPG mentality, they seem incapable of comprehending that they are the ones who turned their back on Syria and refused Russian advice. YPG took up with the US who are supposed to be their defenders so the YPG should take up their complaints with them.

    • Redadmiral

      You pretty much hit the nail on the head there John, however, I will add my tuppence worth. YPG blame Russia because YPG would NOT take Russian advice. Part of that advice was that Turkey is a NATO member and if Russia shot down Turkish aircraft it would bring NATO into the conflict. The US “supports YPG”, however, US is a NATO ally of Turkey, which effectively means the US is supporting the Turkish attack on Afrin. If Afrin was under the control of the SAA, Russia would support Syrian Government action against the Turkish invasion. But as we know the Kurds refused to relinquish control to the Syrian Government, even though it is part of Syria. So, when it comes to taking responsibility for your own actions, especially when it doesn’t work out you can’t come clean and accept you made a complete fuck-up of things, Let’s blame the Russians and hope our stupid followers don’t see through it.

      • AJ

        Excellent observation – thats how I see it too. The kurds want their cake & eat it. They think they can sell out Syria to ally with the US then expect the SAA to defend Afrin which is not under their control.

      • j. jaxson

        why don’t we blame them for all our ills?

  • Davki

    They are right. Syria’s supposed ally, Russia, sold northern Syria to Turkey. Russia (meaning its government, not its people) never had any regard for civilian Syrian life anyway. I do believe that a guerrilla warfare will probably be far more effective than set-battles. Asymmetric warfare can be very serious… it has brought down more occupiers than not. Erdogan ‘needed’ a swift victory. Despite his cleansing of government and public positions, he is still somewhat susceptible to public opinion. A protracted guerrilla war might not go down well with Turks. Especially so, because this one is in Syria, unlike previous confrontations with the PKK. Of ciourse, some hyper-nationalistic greater-Turkey or Osmanli advocates will see Turkey’s operations in northern Syria practically as operations in their own country but I doubt that is anywhere near a majority view.

    • as

      Guerrilla warfare will inevitably invite civilian casualties as it relying heavily on them (civilian) as their smokescreens.
      Now if the majority of Afrin population are with them and actively support them they’ll be a freedom fighter but if they don’t then they’re just another terrorist.

    • AJ

      Kurdish arrogance has lead to defeat of Afrin – they would rather have lost it to the Turks then simply hand control over to the SAA which would have saved hundreds of lives lost for nothing

  • Avi Naser

    I think the kurds is starting to see that US is no longer an good allies. If The US and Turkey did make a deal on manbij than the Kurds will make an alliance with the Russia,Iran and the Syrian gov.

  • Sakaramanga

    ISIS and YPG collaborated (ypg got land from IS withouht fight). Now instead of leaving the land to SAA they refuse russia and assad and hand it to TAF. All US plans.

  • javid soltani

    Kurdish ppl wants Russians to help them while they are working for usa . you cant have both Russia and usa to help them against saa Turkish army , now deal with it by urself

    • AJ

      Exactly – the Kurds have sold Syria out in the East by allying with the US to take the oil rich lands. They rejected Russian offer to hand control of Afrin to SAA so let them deal with the Turks alone.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        I am sure the Syrians will have something to say, as well her allies, after afrin is cleaned from the Usrael vermin, by the turks who put it there in the first place, for the ones who dont have short selective memories..

  • javid soltani

    us don’t want to help kurds in afrin because they cooprateding with Russians and saa , and Russia don’t want help kurds because they are cooprating with nato and usa lol

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      see what happens, when you are a whore, who keep changing her price, as the kurds are?

  • Rob

    Losers Kurds I have stated this a couple of times that join Syrian army otherwise you will lose the land and at the end when you become losers then you will blame Assad and Russia and not yourself. Indeed you are great losers and moron. Now blame Russia and Assad. I know your leadership is totally illitrate and moron. He does not know the power of Turkey, evern Washington and Russia cannot say anything to Turkey so how a weak Kurdish groups will say. Now enjoy defeat. 3500 Kurdish fighter were killed in this war and it is still continue. This war will not end on Afrine, this war will continue untill complete removal of yellow regions from Syria and Iraq.

  • Денис Черкасов

    Those kurds can only blame themselves. They didn’t want to open Afrin for syrian governament long ago already. They’ve got what they deserved.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      not yet, soon i hope.

  • Hrky75

    Self appointed Kurdish “self-administration” refused Russian and Syrian offers for reunification with the rest of the country and continued to stupidly believe in miracles – performed by modern day Jewish prophets straight out of Tel Aviv no doubt. And now when situation on the ground reaffirmed the fact that in geopolitics miracles rarely happen, the self-proclaimed Kurdish “leadership” decide to jump on the band wagon of “it’s all Russian fault”. Nope, it’s all your own fault – stupid. Erdogan, as despicable as he is, was clear that he won’t allow any US/Zio Kurdish quasi state to be created on his borders. Not because he cares about sovereignty of Syria or Iraq, but because he cares about sovereignty of Turkey. Kurds are either too blind or too ignorant to see that Us/Zios are using them as cannon fodder in a battle that, at this point, can be won by any of several sides fighting it – but the Kurds will definitely we’ll be one of the losing sides…

  • Bobby Twoshoes

    Yanks and Kurds are the perfect match; cocksure, uneducated, unreliable and totally divorced from reality.

  • Xanatos

    The kurds agreed to withdraw, but how will they return to manbij without passing thru syrian government territory? I think part of the agreement was to let them pass thru turkish controlled Bab.

    These kurds don’t want to go to syrian control. They include 7,000 volunteers from SDF territory.

    In the battle for afrin there were three armies and only one winner.

  • Xanatos

    Did russia give turkey too much? They took afrin before east ghouta fell. Turkey can now condemn the fighting in ghouta. They have destroyed relations between kurds and russia. They may have damaged relations between kurds and america, but that can be repaired by the US blocking turkey from manbij.

    Russia gave away part of syria and what did they get? Turkey might even return to good relations with NATO now and laugh off their order for s400. Turkey doesn’t need russia anymore.

    • velociraptor

    Of all the people to scapegoat, the Russians? I guess they’re still hoping for help from the US or are they building on that recent event where Turkish observation posts were established in the de-escalation zone…

  • Hell Sing

    Its the poor choices the YPG leadership has made just like the poor leadership made in Iraq when the military asserted its will against Pershmerga. The fall of Afrin is due to the stupidity of alignibg with the U.S. and a lack of iron resolve to atleast fight to the bitter o ground they gain when the Takfiris were a menance in Kurdish domibated sectors.

Who actually told them this would happen if they didn’t make a deal! Thing is, “Olive Branch” has proven the YPG are completely useless without US bomber jets covering them!

  • MichaH

    It is hilarious, what and where ever something shitty happens, it is always the Russians to blame, from a global perspective they are the new „jews“.

    The kurds in Afrin played with high stakes, got all in, lost everything. That is life, a never ending story of betraying and get betrayed.

      not always. but in syria ruskies are big shitmixers.

  • Akkolteus

  • Hide Behind

    Russia first and foremost must lookout for its own interest, and it has never made any claims or offers to any interest outside of Assad portion of Syria, that by treaty and invite under legal international law was agreed upon between them.
    While the Sovereign Syrian nation has been thrown into being as low as aby third class nation can get, non of its problems were caused by Russia.
    As to Kurds, all branches and clans, have always refused to assimilate but also to integrate their people’s into any other national identity.
    THEY have always chosen the way of the gun against any National entity they lived within to try and form own nation, all on ancient meme lies of a mythical mystical past Kurdish Golden Age.
    THEY have always been broken into several cults that having no one else to bitch about, then attack each other.
    Today while still not a cohesive group of people’s they with foreign capital play the d’s hippie flowerchild love and peace woe is ME card. Eliciting the hand wringing utopian volunteers from nations they cannot change to come commune with them.
    SOLUTION?
    Give them own nation, give them Georgia, Alabama, North and South Carolinas, Arkansas and Louisiana USA, the most backwards places in US.

    SALISBURY POISON ATTACK: BRITISH POLICE FINDS PUTIN’S ID CARD AT THE SCENE

    Now, the last doubts about the perpetrators of Russia in the poisoning of the Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal should be cleared up. As the British government announced today, the ID card of Russian President Vladimir Putin was discovered at the crime scene in Salisbury.

    According to British Prime Minister Theresa May, the ID card was only found in a re-investigation of the crime scene because it was under a leaf.

    “Russia now has 24 hours to deliver Vladimir Putin to be interviewed in London,” the British government said. “Otherwise, we’ll take that as a guilty admission.”

      Salisbury attack: Joint statement from the leaders of France, Germany, the United States and the United Kingdom

      We, the leaders of France, Germany, the United States and the United Kingdom, abhor the attack that took place against Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury, UK, on 4 March 2018. A British police officer who was also exposed in the attack remains seriously ill, and the lives of many innocent British citizens have been threatened. We express our sympathies to them all, and our admiration for the UK police and emergency services for their courageous response.

      This use of a military-grade nerve agent, of a type developed by Russia, constitutes the first offensive use of a nerve agent in Europe since the Second World War. It is an assault on UK sovereignty and any such use by a State party is a clear violation of the Chemical Weapons Convention and a breach of international law. It threatens the security of us all.

      The United Kingdom briefed thoroughly its allies that it was highly likely that Russia was responsible for the attack. We share the UK assessment that there is no plausible alternative explanation, and note that Russia´s failure to address the legitimate request by the UK government further underlines its responsibility. We call on Russia to address all questions related to the attack in Salisbury. Russia should in particular provide full and complete disclosure of the Novichok programme to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

      Our concerns are also heightened against the background of a pattern of earlier irresponsible Russian behaviour. We call on Russia to live up to its responsibilities as a member of the UN Security Council to uphold international peace and security.

      • jerry hamilton

        They then went on to say “It is highly likely we are talking total shite but believe us anyway.”

            It is so obviously nothing to do with Skripal.
            It is a simple ganging up to attack Russia.

  • The Kurds have been betrayed by everyone because they tried to betray everyone. They were acting from an imagined position of strength they did not have. They can expect further setbacks everywhere in Syria and Iraq now that their best fighters are dead.

  • RichardD

    I find it interesting that Afrin was spared the destruction that has befallen so many Syrian cities in this conflict. There’s obviously a deal with the Turks and the Syrian government coalition to allow the Turks to prevent KRGll in Israelistan east of the river and in Kurdish areas west of the river up on the Turkish border. The details of this deal haven’t been made public anywhere that I’m aware of.

    What the Turks have talked about is a 20 mile DMZ buffer zone along their border with Syria all of the way to the Iraq border where the YPG and PKK embedded with them will be disarmed. This neutralizes all of the Kurdish majority areas in Syria that have purportedly been used to supply the PKK. How much truth there is to reports that the Syrian government has been complicit in that I don’t know. But resolving that issue is probably going to be a precondition to any transfer of the buffer zone from Turkey to Syria. If the buffer zone continues from Afrin to the Iraq border.

    What I see forming up here is regime change Plan C. With Plan A, regime change in Damascus, being history, and Plan B Kurdish Israelistan heading down the tubes with the Turk buffer zone. Plan C being, the Turks working with the Jew world order to set up a North Syria government east of the river that will include the Turk’s buffer zone west of the river, that will be used against Syria, Russia, Iran and China, but not Turkey. There may be plans to turn on Turkey once they’ve cooperated, and proceed with the balkanization of Turkey anyways. But the Jews are hoping that the Turks will believe the Jew lies. And do as they’re told like compliant Jew marionettes.

    Naturally the Syrian government coalition has a say in what transpires, and that may throw cold water on regime change Plan C. But that doesn’t mean that an effort won’t be made to get the Turks on board to drag the war out to keep the Satanic Jews happy. Because from the Jew sadist’s perspective, a big mess in Syria and Turkey, is better than no mess at all. With no mess meaning that the Syrians would be in a stronger position to resolve the Golan and Jew problem on their southern border.

Well, you have obtain just what you deserve by another an enemy of Syra (Turkey). Turkey will also have the chance to return this land to its real owner. I hope the Turkey-Russia agreement of allowing Turkey to invade this part of Syria have taken this into consideration.
