Assassination Of Prominent Tribal Leader Sparks Crisis Between Arabs And SDF In Raqqa

A photo from the funeral of Sheikh Basheer

The Arab tribes of al-Waldat, al-Sabkhat, al-Emirat and al-Hlysat released an joint statement on November 3, in which they held the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) responsible for the assassination of Sheikh Basheer Faisal al-Huwaidi, a leader of al-Afdalah tribe, and called for an investigation into the crime.

“Sheikh Basheer was assassinated because he had rejected the SDF occupation and their control of Raqqa. He told them in their respected council: you are guests on our land and Raqqa belongs to its people,” the joint statement said.

Furthermore, the four tribes, which are among the biggest and most influential tribes in Raqqa, called on all Arabs to stop their political and social collaboration with the SDF. In the end of their statement, the tribes stressed that Raqqa “should be returned to its people.”

ISIS claimed responsibility for the assassination of Sheikh Basheer on November 2 and vowed to target any local leader who dare to cooperate with SDF. Back then, the Raqqa Civil Council condemned the assassination, but it didn’t mention that there was a disagreement with the slain Sheikh.

This incident reflects the fragile situation within the SDF-held areas in northeastern Syria. Despite that the tension between Arab and the Kurdish-dominated group is higher than ever, the U.S. appears to be unwilling to grant Arabs more rights on their own land.

      It appears that ‘people like us’ were right about the perfidious nature of the Israeli governments after all :)

      I would love to see these documentaries broadcast on the BBC :)

      Perhaps Trump will sanction Israel for ‘interfering with our elections ‘ ?

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Zionist parasites are destroying the US and the anger in the rednecks is rising as the attacks on the Yids in Pittsburg showed. 1% Bilderberg Jew corporations control 90% of US wealth while 100 million brainwashed Americunt idiots live in food stamps, on dog food in trailer park if they are lucky.

        A situation that can change overnight… the One-Percenters owning 50% of the World is an untenable situation…they are well underway to owning 60%…. One-Percenters owning 100% of the world is perhaps their Dream…. but they will never get there… because History teaches us that Men with Pitchforks & Torches usually arrive around that time… and they simply take it all back….

      Excuse me, is this video in any manner to promote FSA or the groups who use green, white and black banner instead of the Syrian flag? Please clarify.

      They are equally bad as PKK, if not more.

      • Merijn

        But the FSA (Nour al-Din al Zenki, Ahrar Al-Sham, Hamza Division & the other Kiddie-Beheaders) optional can be used to Kill the other Headchoppers in Idlibistan they are already in there..and the FSA can be used to Force the Turds & their YPG-PKK-SDF to the Negotiation-Table….that is if Erdogan orders the FSA….can be very Handy when the conquering of Idlibistan and Eastern Syria starts… so it depends on Mister Erdogan’s choices & orders…. Erdogan is with Russians my opinion…he would be a Fool to stand with the AngloZioNazis…they Lost…. big Time…

        • Garga

          You know that’s how the US planners felt about Al-Qaida and ISIS and acted upon, don’t you? They thought they could use ISIS and AQ to counter resistance. Look where that took the world. It’s like raising a snake in one’s sleeves.

          Sooner or later every new recruit that FSA absorbs will face a choice to stand against the Syrian government or abandon the ranks, and they proved unwilling to abandon unless they see it’s absolutely pointless to resist, otherwise they have no problem in fighting the army and killing the resisting civilians.

          Excuse me if I’m not overly enthusiastic about a group who call themselves “free” and “Syrian” but receive their orders from a foreign country.
          Even if they counter the treacherous SDF it doesn’t mean I’ll tolerate their promotional material in a website I care about.

          • Merijn

            Well what I in essence meant was: Let the FSA-Headchoppers & The Usraeli-Wahhabi-Headchoppers Kill eachother…..That will be approximately 50% of the Idlibistan-Headchoppers gone….which makes the Conquering of Idlibistan for the Russians, SAA & Allies a bit easier in the near future…

      Yes, so why are Kurds murdered on their own land. 35 million Kurds in Turkey-Syria-Iraq-Iran yet they have no power in any country. Same is true for every other minority in these countries. God sees 500,000 Syrians murdered, almost everyone of them worshiped him but they killed each other in God’s name.

      • Merijn

        The U.S. Army…IsraHell & the U.K. Wanted to build a Greater IsraHell… and Control the Heroin-Trade for mister Rothschild & his Buddies…so after the 911-Dancing Israeli-Controlled Demolition of the Twin Towers and the Americans happy to serve as Cannonfodder after that False Flag inside Job they entered Afghanistan…. Saddam wanted the Euro instead of the Petro-Dollar to Sell his Oil… so He suddenly had Weapons of Mass Destruction & Supported Al-Qaeda all of a Sudden…(Al-Qaeda is the CIA…sssttt don’t tell anyone)

  • Garga

    Well, it came much quicker than anticipated.
    Now that we’re sure they are against SDF, we should wait and see that these tribes are inclined towards the Syrian government or the Turkey.

    @Merijn, “prostates” turned out to be troublesome! Told’ya bad things happen! ;)

    • Willing Conscience (The Truths

      Arab tribes usually lean towards anyone but Erdogan, it’s the Turkmen ethnic group that’s pro Erdogan usually [but not always]. Arabs usually go either pro Assad, or HTS [Saudi Arabia] or Isis, other than that they stick to their own tribal groups. The US did have a lot of Arab groups aligned to them in the beginning, but most have either dropped out of the coalition or been booted out by the US.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        The devious Brits used the Wahhabi Arab “tribes” to destroy the Ottoman Empire. Erdogan really needs to brush up on history. The US is now doing the same.

        • Jens Holm

          Thats totally crap and incorrect all way around. You have no udea about You and the Ottoam history at all.

          Why dont You read about it. Internet has it in many versions and none are like Yours at all.

          You also ignore Russia, Austria/Hungaria, Greeks, French and Italians. But of course that doesnt bother You as well.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    That is the US criminal losers and Zionist parasites agenda of divide and rule by pitting Arabs against the Kurds and Shia against the Sunnis. The region will never find peace or justice as long as the twin evils of Wahhabism and Zionism exist. It is time to expel the US occupation forces from Syria, Iraq and the region in general.

    • Jens Holm

      Parrot again. Here we goes.

  • R Trojson

    So the Kurds control ISIS when ISIS attacks Assad. Who controls ISIS when it attacks and slaughters scores of Kurds? Kurds were fighting ISIS along the Euphrates and winning until Turkey attacked the Kurds and forced them to redeploy troops to the northern border. It was Russia-Syria-Iran who resupplied al Safa ISIS last week with at least 4 trucks of food, drugs, ammunition and weapons. Then gave them a cease fire to rest up. Truth be told it is Russia-Syria-Iran and Turkey who control and pay ISIS. They have directed ISIS to go after Kurds and US.

    • Merijn

      The U.S., IsraHell & the U.K. Control them All….. the Kurds, ISIS, Jaysh al-Wahhabistan, HTS, Al-Nusra, Al-Qaeda, SDF, SLF, they are all the same Motherfuckers only a different name or they simply shave their Beard…. the U.S. already betrayed the Kurds before after the First Gulf War…. And Saddam Slaughtered the Kurds back then….do you think the U.S. or IsraHell give a shit if a couple of Kurds or Other Folks in the Middle East Die?!…ofcourse not…the more the better…

    • Concrete Mike

      Truth be told your a fucking liar.

      Last year when saa was racing south of if deir ez zor…sdf(kurds call em whatever) had no problems racing down and taking theboil fields ans racing down and blocking saa everychance they get, with no isis resistance to SDF at all. In fact russia MOD showed pictured of american troops in isis areas just cruising around. Explain that one shlomo.

      Kurds and isis are geopolitical tools used by usa and friends to annoy syria iran and russia…its also a trick for more defense spending. This is where you come in…your paid to troll. Tell your.masters they should invest in something else there not getting a good return from you.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    I can still remember when the 50 Arab clans in Al Hasakah united to try and achieve the same thing there, they didn’t do so well back then, but if Ar Raqqa clans are organizing the same thing here now, it may also encourage those 50 clans in Al Hasakah to try again.
    The US is occupied in Hajin atm with Isis, who are also attacking the SDF anywhere and everywhere else they can, and on top of that, the Kurds have the Turks moving into Kobani with US approval, causing them to go on strike and cease fighting Isis on the US’s behalf, could it get any worse, yes it could.
    This is the perfect time for a government sponsored Arab uprising against the US, I don’t think it could get any better than this, time to strike while the irons still hot I say.

    • Hisham Saber

      Yes, u r right. And the insurgency that’s about to commence will be hell for the SDF Kurds, the U.S. , British and French Special Forces and bases.

      The Syrian government and Iran will most surely give all the weapons and logistical support to the Arab tribes. And a vicious insurgency will take hold.

      Remember the Iraqi War 2.0, where in the Anbar province, the Arab tribes gave the U.S. military all kinds of hell, essentially bogging down 14 out of the total 16 battalions of the U.S. Army.

      On the western side of the Euphrates, there is the Syrian Arab Army, NDF and auxiliaries, about 25-30 thousand Afghan volunteers who were brought in by Iran pretty much. Plus you have many, many Chechen volunteers too. Lets not forget the IRGC and Hezbollah. On the Iraqi-Syrian border, you have the Hashd Al-Shaabi, or Popular Mobilization Forces of Iraq, who essentially answer to IRGC Al-Quds Corp. Gen. Sulemenei, who answers directly to Ayatollah Khamenei. Hashd Al-Shaabi also has deployed a significant number of fighters just outside the 50km line to Al-Tanf base used by the U.S. et al.

      Given all this, it appears, if one looks at a map, that the U.S., British, French Special Forces and their bases, along with the ‘ outsiders ‘, the SDF Kurds, are essentially surrounded in a carefully planned giant double envelopment maneuver , a ‘ pincer ‘ if you will.

      If things go south, like an attack on Iran, or the occupiers don’t leave, as they are on borrowed time, U.S. forces and their lackeys stand no chance and will be overwhelmed in short order. And air forces wont be able to change the dynamics on the ground.

      Its coming, just wait a bit, still some preparations being put into place.

      • Jens Holm

        Thats mqainly no facts to rely on at all. Being in war so many years already making soldiers and milisias so tired, You cant imagine.

        So numbers are kind of not relevant as that brutto. The same of course goes the other way.

        The only ones having good fresh troops are turks.

    • Jens Holm

      Things has changed a lot since that. There has been a big urbanisation as well as a lot of poor farners from north has joined the area because of the Dams and the irrigation.

      And You can add all about oil and gas. Tribes by that now are very much mixed up.

      Being kind of objektive I would say, that only Damaskus has any chance to take over anything there if things become chaos.

      FSA has no fighting potential having no supplyers as well. Thats my own private oppinion.

      • Concrete Mike

        I agree only Damas can administer ITS land.

        • Jens Holm

          They have not shown that but the opposite. Syrians systematicly has been kept down in a non devellopment zone having no structure for it as well as infected in feart, bajonets and corruption.

          A country include its citicens.

          • Concrete Mike

            “A country include its.citizens”

            Tell that to the native americans…no way the west has moral high.ground here no way at all. Nice try

  • Jens Holm

    Again very biased. It seemes to be in a FSA context. Those FSAs or semi ones do not understand, that if they go on like that ISIS or Damaskus can take over.

    Those FSAs are not educated to organize things well at all. I am almost sure its them again. The SDF zone need fair choises and strong sekular Governess by a Counsel runned in % after representation. Moderate muslism dont want Jihadists of any kind occupying corners making their own states in states with religios police and Sharia.

    I wis´h some of the moderate muslims could come back from Turkey and by voting say same things in big letters.

  • Hide Behind

    Many people blame the wealthy and political class for all the chaos now ongoing in many parts of world, but they nor their bureaucrat administrators join in combat, it is all volunteer military who do the actual killing.
    It is not just these volunteers who like warmaking, for they have friends, family, educators, those employed in war industries, so that eith over 2 million active duty you can add at least 30 million domestics that support war efforts.
    The peoples of US, Europe, Britain and her suckling nations do not see, hear, or feel the chaos of war, there are no interuptions at all to their daily lives.
    In all of collegiate and proffesional sporting events you find huge flags draping playing fieldsa, military jets doing flyovers while tens of thousand raise up in Nationalistic frnzy bordering on tears.
    Sporting contest broadcast and watched by millions of voters and their choldren.
    Children who are indoctrinated into wanting to be part of that hsppy killing machine.
    Tens of millions own copies of semi auto AR 15 and AK and earlier military derivatives, and they fire millions of military ammo per year.
    From toddlers of 5 years to great grandmas fire the damn things and while we are a nation of game hunters only the most rednecks of all use those military weapons while hunting.
    Military recruitment pushed the idea of warriors in uniform as being hetoic, and it works.
    European nations are a bit different than US they do not publicly propagandize their military and indtead pretend to be caring natoons, while silently stabbing worlds poor in back.
    While US is downright blatant about how we openly go about killing, and even our President says take countries over and take their oil,.
    And we elect people to power from President on down to village dog catchers that belong to political parties that push such agenda.
    In truth with friends such as US and their Eurocentric buddies one cannot find enemies more dangerous.
    Oh not saying you will not find critics of nations war policies, but they are but puppies in overal of their dog eat dog masters.
    Syrians not living in one of US and European nations are not human in those nations eyes.
    They will be kind until they fully conwuer Syria and then be reduced to target practice by police do to blacks in US.
    If they are lucky they can find menial jbs that help support the bloodlust of the Volunteers.
    In fact they can even volunteer to join those militaries that pay so well, and become Real American heros.
