Damascus Government Rreached Agreement With YPG Over Afrin Area – Al-Mayadin TV

YPG fighters

The Damascus government and the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) have reached an agreement that will allow the Syrian Army (SAA) to deploy its units inside the  Afrin area, the Lebanese al-Mayadin TV reported on February 15. The report said that the agreement had been reached after a long negotiation between the two sides.

Syria’s Deputy-Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said during a press conference on February 14 that the SAA will defend Afrin. An anonymous Syrian official told al-Mayadeen on February 15 that Mekdad’s statement will be fulfilled soon.

Sîpan Hemo, YPG’s General Commander, revealed during an interview on February 12 that “there is a great deal of coordination between YPG fighters and the SAA” and said that the YPG will welcome any reinforcement from the SAA.

The Al-Mayadeen report is yet to be confirmed by any Syrian or Kurdish official.

The Lebanese TV channel reported that the Damascus government and the YPG had reached an agreement regarding the Afrin area on January 24. However, Kurdish officials quickly denied this report back then.

Over the last two days, the Turkish Army and its proxies from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) have expanded their control around several strategic areas west of Afrin. The rapid advance of the Turkish Army may have forced the YPG to reconsider the Damascus government offers to deploy the SAA in Afrin.

  • Terence Silvestre Jr.

    It would not be too late, now?
    The Kurdish pride, in its maximum expression, giving rise to a humble and shameful surrender to the logical wisdom that from the beginning had to be applied, thus avoiding hundreds of liters of spilled blood?

    • Rob

      Sorry advice and directions come to Kurd commanders from US and Israel. Kurds commanders have no brain.

      • Maxime St-Jacques

        The truth is that Turkish and his Al-Qaïda allies of weapon trafic into the Middle-»East failed to entitled papers that claim Afrin under cleanse. Cleaned was this area from Al-Qaïda and ISIS. YPG, move to the west please and quite fast surrender to SAA or SR. Peace will comeforth after economic areas are adopted for trade and good will. Work PKK, work for soils and food and irrigation or market security. Thank you all

    • Rodger

      It seems the Kurds will buy the Yankee BS everytime.

  • Garga

    If that’s true, then it becomes clearer why the US terrorists attacked Syrian forces near Euphrates. They were doing their best to saboutage any ongoing negotiations between Kurds and the Syrian government.

    It’s good news anyway, but at the same time it’s unfortunate that the Kurds need brute force used against them to come to their senses. If they didn’t insist on sitting on top of their ivory tower, perhaps Turkey wouldn’t attack Afrin and a lot of lives wouldn’t be wasted.

    Again, if that’s true and YPG (PKK in Syria, let’s not forget that) doesn’t deny it quickly, I hope they expand their cooperations with the legitimate Syria government for the country’s sake.

    • Gjergj

      Right! I can’t understand how Turkey can be stopped right now!

      • dutchnational

        Once there is aircover for the SDF, turks will find it hard to advance and when there are small units of SAA stationed in their path of advance, advancing through SAA means war between Turkey and Syria (aided by Russia imo)

        • Jim Martin

          My worry is what “cost” will the people of Afrin and the SDF/YPG/YPJ have to pay for Assad Regime support? Good question

          It would be helpful for them to push back on Damascus and say. We are Syrian First if if you let Erdogan “take the Sudtenland” SYRIA will not get it back and Afrin Canton will become a black a “septic tank” for Erdogan’s Jihadis and ISIS “retirees” It was said that Damascus’s dislike for Erdogan’s designs are visceral and that is very good reason to help Afrin Canton without strings. Also many decent people on the Govt side will need a safe place to escape into when the Assad regime eventual is dissolved and SDF/YPG/YPJ inclusive areas are their safest area where people will not be waiting for them with a battle axe or electric cables

          I view SDF/YPG/YPJ areas as also deescalation areas for all Syrians regardless of regime or not when this mess comes to an end

          • Maxime St-Jacques

            If you combat terrorists in Afrin as PKK terrorists, the definition of terrrorism doesn’t rely anymore on chemical weapons, booby traps and mines left on the ground, into houses and into the aviation areas. Different levels of terrorists let say : 1 – ISIS-down level 2 – PKK and YPG 3 – level 3 PYD, SAA, all rebels factions I guess. But the real terrorists the Allies are fighting are first level, Second level boundaries secure ongoing fighting plan over genuine liberation and cessation of hostilites I hope for.

          yep, and to all the syrians i know personally

          • Bob

            Cite some proof and credible sources then – ‘the syrians (sic) i know personally’ – that is hardly good enough, nothing but allegations and alleged anecdotal claims.

      • Rodger

        Sure, but I think now you’ll see the true ME political mastery shine. Turkey will ‘withdraw’ and Syria, Russia, Turkey and even the Kurds can claim victory. International kuddos for all, everybody wins, nobody loses (except for the US and Israel). Politics of mutual gain in action.

        • matt

          I don’t see it happen, but i hope you are right

          • Rodger

            It’s a bit of hopeful thinking. But someone might be reading along. :P

      • John Mason

        What fake elections? If you are referring to the US then I agree with you.

    • Rob

      Sorry advice and directions come to Kurd commanders from US and Israel. Kurds commanders have no brain. In previous comments I have mentioned that on what branch Kurds are setting the Kurds cutting the same branch and when they drop to ground then they will blame Assad.

      • Samantha Green

        I’m pretty sure the US and Israel opposed the reinforcement of Afrin at the expense of the Southeast like Khasham; and YPG did it anyway.

        • Rodger

          They just didn’t want any confrontation with Turkey and were quite willing to give up the area. I’m sure they have a map somewhere and Afrin is outside the designed new state. Not homogenous Kurdish enough or something.

    • Admiral_Moorer_believed

      The US forces east of Deir Azor are just trying to keep hold of the two major oil fields there.

      The Oil fields are in Arab Territories taken over by the Kurds with US backing.

      This is about the oil.

      As usual.

      • Vitex

        I think it might turn out to be more about water, but we’ll see.

        • Admiral_Moorer_believed

          The US and it’s people got really violent when the Sytrian army went for the Oil wells.

          They need the money to be able to run their Kurdish state. . . And that is what the oil gives them.

    • RichardD

      I’m assuming that there’s an income stream to the Kurds from outside Syria supporting their partition and secession project. If that’s true, which it almost certainly is, then they’re mercenaries fighting the Syrian government as it tries to reestablish government administration in SDF areas. And they need to be treated as such until they stop fighting the Syrian government.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      They refused to hand over their arms again but gave on all things, not looking good for the stupid Kurdish leadership.

      • velociraptor

        They will never give up their weapons. At least not until other groups can have. Like hezbollah.

        • Maxime St-Jacques

          Hezbollahs’ weaponry comes from Syrian Regime’s deposits. Their acess denies peace processes and cooperation internationnaly. The subscribes triangle of weapon trafic is under tight observation by myself into Palmyra, Idlib and Hama where still is the 1 – To Clear phase of the conflict. Hezbollah strives to take this way from Hama to Idlib to Lebanon trough turkish – Afrin area I suggest.

      • You can call me Al

        But I thought the Yanks were taking those back anyway; that is what they stated…whahahaha

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          Well apparently they accepted now because they know Turkey can’t face the SAA with out receiving real serious World condemnation and everybody screaming for Erdogan’s and it’s HTS Groups.This is definitely engineered by attempt by NATO Generals as they are riding Russia’s coattails on this one.

    • Derek Andover

      Lol what a moron. More like Assad wanted the oil fields, saa is the one who attacked

      • Ronald

        You might pause to remember , they are Syrian oil fields , not American or Kurdish .

        • Derek Andover

          Last I checked kurds were syrian dunce

          • Ronald

            The Kurds are 8 % of the Syrian population , the oil fields belong to all Syrians represented by the legitimate government , not by an attacking foreign power, the US, traitor .

          • Derek Andover

            SDF more accurately represents the people then Assad a shia dictator LOL. Goahead poll North Syrians see how much they want Assad, LOL

          • Ronald

            There you said it yourself “North Syrians” , Raqqa and the dam, and certainly Deir Ezzor and the Omar oil fields are far south of Kurdish occupied land.
            The US is just using them for its own interests , control of Syria’s assets .

          • Derek Andover

            There you go you said it yourself “north syrians” the people of north Syria which owns the land in north Syria. Yes we help them for our own interest but we don’t care about Syrias oil its crap go check their production its laughable even iraq gives usa less then 2% of its oil. We back SDF because they are loyal allies against terrorism and aren’t anti Israel and anti USA. Russia can do everything for Assad the dictator and you wont say anything. Which leads me to believe you are a kremlin troll from the factory but you seem more reasonable so maybe influenced by them. But doesn’t matter I hope we back SDF fully I know its the right decision morally and strategically and its not even close.

  • Mountains

    This is absolutely not true and BS. I don’t see this being possible. This is not kindergarten deals Turkey is fully blown in Afrin and I don’t thnk they would appreciate anything stopping them in fact if you want to stop this then atleast prepare for full blown all out war with Turkey.

    There is just no way Turkey accepts shit like this. They have almost captured Afrin. This is to late and nonsense report. Period

    • Ivanus59

      “There is just no way Turkey accepts shit like this. They have almost captured Afrin.” lol hahaha. You serious?
      Now I do have my doubts about this news, I’ll only believe it when I see it happening. But if it was to happen, Turkey couldn’t do much.
      Besides while we are talking about who won’t accept, it is Syria who will not accept Turkish or American or Israeli terrorists occupying their territory, or any of their proxies.
      They can’t take them all on at once, but one by one they will fight those that need to be fought, all in due time.

      • Mountains

        Syria dosen’t have a say in this. It’s a deal between Turkey and Russia. Russia don’t make kindergarten deals or weak ass shaddy backing off from deals. The Syrian regime is speaking in different tongues and I believe people in this regime who are not relieable mentally due to the war are undermining Assad. I’m also certain this push is not from Assad himself hence why the news is uncofirmed nor reliable.

        But that being said. Russia could withdraw it’s asistance due to some fuckery done by the regime. TURKEY won’t back down and could destroy Assad within Months if left uncheck with the turks. They would simple overrun Assad and his forces who couldn’t defeat the rebels without Russia and the coalition.

        Assad is weak and don’t run anything this is certain. Putin controlls the red-zone of Syria that is regime controll.

        If anything this deal sounds like what happened in DZ bombing people acting by their own way without the leadership.

        • TruthSeeker

          “Turkey won’t make down and could destroy assad within months”, You sir are deluded. Have you not been following the isreali f16 just been blown out of the sky by syrian air defence forces?

          • MoonMan

            Then saa had to deal with isreali AND turkish jets lol

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            i dont think that will be a problem, on the SAA side. But will be a big problem for the turkish air force since their pilots are really shit pilots same as their army.

            And something many seem to forget here, using selective memory or are truly ignorant to the facts, is that 5000 Chinese are on the ground and more than that Russians and even more Iranians with their own weapons, in place and all are zeroing, towards what they consider enemy.

            You speak as though SAA is the only player on the ground why is that?

    • PZIVJ

      “They have almost captured Afrin” LOL
      Does Porky know how to read a map?

  • Joe Doe

    I would wait and see. To many conficting infprmation

  • Joe

    Doubt it is wise …

  • Gjergj

    This is the right thing to do. Firstly I support Syrian government, because it’s thriving for some true independence, unity and prosperity for Syria, for the moment it represents the best Syria can have. But I do have great respect and I support Kurds as well. Everybody seeks alliances, as Syria allied with Russia and Iran Kurds allied with USA, and I think they managed to find a somewhat acceptable equilibrium between the USA demands and their interest to not become actively an anti government paramilitary force, their expansion in Raqqa and D. Ezzoir is the only thing they did wrong, taking something it does not belong to them.

    In my opinion the biggest threat to Syria is Turkey. The lands Turkey is grabbing hardly will come under Syrias jurisdiction again and secondly terrorists will find there a secure heaven where to thrive and continuously threat Syrias security and stability.

    • matt

      True independence, hahahaaa that does not exist on this planet since a LONG time!

      • Gjergj

        Independence it does not mean to do everything somebody wants, as the facts have shown USA is not truly independent as well, it have to recognize strong limitations put in place by other “players”. By independence I mean to be in the position do decide the main lines of political, economical and social development of the society that a government represents,

        …. and I think Kurds deserve some from this kind of independence, every large distinct community should have it’s fate into its own hands, if not… it will suffer a lot.

  • jerry hamilton

    Is it possible that this report is using the correct words but in the wrong order?

      See if it makes any sense. :DD

  • Attrition47

    Hmmm, good move by the Syrians.

  • Turbofan

    My issue with Kurds is their cooperation with the US but I will support the Kurds any day over Turkey..Remember that whole Syrian debacle would not have happened without explicit Turkish participation.The US, other NATO members and GCC countries may have supplied the weapon but it was always Turkey.

    1. Bought ISIS oil to keep the caliphate going.
    2. Broke down and stole entire Syrian factories and transported them over the border.
    3. Remember Serena Shim and her report about Al Qaeda being bused from Turkey together with aid into Syria.
    4. Supplied the Chemical weapons used in Ghouta 2013.
    5. Actively protecting terrorist in Idlib.

    the list goes on and on..

    • Hanny Benny

      turkey = ISIS

    • Don’t read butthurt replies

      There’s a lot of ex-daesh(isis) members inside of these Kurds group, so no reason to support them any more even if they stopped their cooperation with the US/Israel.

  • Feudalism Victory

    A correct decision. Syrian unity is enhanced by this.

  • Manie

    Kurds in Afrin have found themselves between a rock and extremely hard place. They very well may have played right into Syrian government hands, if this new is true. Either way they only really had two choices.
    1. Come to a mutual Agreement with the Syrian government, that would see the Syrian government re-establish control over the territory in exchange for some of thier demands as long as they are within reason.
    2. Refuse to hand over occupied territory or coming to an amicable settlement with the Syrian Government, and Face off with Turkey and thier goon squads while the Syrian Government sits back and watches Turkey take them out.

    Option 1 , obviously is thier best choice. Will wait and see if they are smart enough to figure that out.

    • Samantha Green

      ABORTION RIGHTS IN AFRIN! Turkey has some but SAA and FSA don’t.

      • jorge

        Well, probably they have saved the abortion rights in their agreement. Many women fighters.

    • Devshirme ErdoBot

      If Afrin kerds get under the SAA that would divide kurds. I doubt they will agree to this. If kerdroaches under SDF controlled areas see some of their kin can merge with SAA this would raise questions among SDF rats whether it’s worth or not to die for USA.
      Even if civillian kerds wanted YPG/SDF wouldn’t let them.

  • jorge

    I hope that many kurds, in other places of Syria, will follow their brothers of Afrin.

  • Skagos

    If true; dumb move by Assad. Petangon, 2 days ago, announced its budget. There is a 550 million $ budget that will be spend for YPG in Syria. What, does Assad think US is spending that money on YPG for fun? It’s to build a seperate state within Syria.

    http://www.anews.com.tr/middle-east/2018/02/12/pentagon-2019-budget-allocates-550-million-for-ypg-1518517489

    Cooperation with YPG in small areas mean nothing. Controlling Afrin, means nothing. If Assad truely wants to revive Syria as a sovreign country then he needs to control 3 important area; Tabqa(because of Tabqa Dam), east of Deir-ez-zor province(for oil fileds), and most of the border with Turkey(agricultural lands).

  • leon mc pilibin

    WTF is the matter with he Kurds,no wonder they dont have their own state.They are lions led by sheep,who are only interested in a quick buck..They should never have stabbed the Syrian people in the back by allowing the zioyanks to fool them into stealing the land and wealth of the country,which eventually will be siphoned off into the greedy pockets of the zionists.Look at Ukraine.Maybe its not too late to mend bridges,if they get some decent leadership.Anyway,Victory to the Brave fighting spirit of the Syrian People.

  • jerry hamilton

    How are America going to counter this?
    It’s possible that if they quickly invade a few more countries, the ranks of ISIS will swell.
    Netanyahu certainly won’t just let the Americans quit.

  • Shy Talk

    if this report turns out to be true, then (imho) this will turn into an ottoman flop for the turks, they will not take on the SAA (even though on paper, they easily have the firepower to) their losses would be to high, SAA is not the YPG, maybe its all part of the plan to get the Kurds to ditch the USA, but who knows, they are all a bunch of backstabbing b@stards

    • MoonMan

      i think if the YPG units dont leave afrin and stay with protections of saa, turkey will escelate the situation, no matter what cost,

  • Bjorn Metaal
  • MoonMan

    If SAA forces ypg to leave afrin i turkey would accepts it but if ypg stays under saa´s protection turkey will escelate the situation no doubt

  • Promitheas Apollonious

    before starting all kind of scenarios, is best first to see if the info is correct and the kurds finally decided to do the right thing, rather than bite the hand of the country given them hospitality.

  • velociraptor
  • King_GeorgXIII

    No, dont the Kurds still work with the USA! Let them battle it weakens the kurds and than push into east syria! Turkey will have no choise later to back out otherwise the get bombed by russia again! Now the Kurds want SAA blood to use for their political gains!

    • Devshirme ErdoBot

      Russia is no body to bomb Turkey. Ruskies are pu$$ies. They covered up the deaths of at least a hundred SAA and Russian mercenaries just because theya are scared of Holy US Empire.

  • dutchnational

    Depending on the terms, this is good news for all sides. At the least it will decrease the number of casualties.

    I expect the fights to continue though, depending on where and when SAA will be deployed and on whether there will (likely) be an airshield.

    However, without air superiority TSK will have much difficluties in advancing any further.

    <aybe this will be the beginning of an all encompassing deal between Assad and the SDF.

    If this is correct, the turks have been outmavouvred by both Assad and SDF.

  • John

    Desperation I think, on the part of the Kurds. In my view, it means they are really taking an ass kicking. By making an agreement, they are ceding a lot. It would only be done, if the YPG was in the process of being overrun. This is pointing to something big, part of which would be the ineffectiveness of the US or Israel. The Kurds in Iraq had to recently agree with the Iranians. Now the Syrian Kurds have hit their wall. Important pieces to the puzzle are falling into public view. It’s time to observe, carfefully. I wish well to all.

  • Pál Póli

    On the long run the Kurds have to understand that the USA is nor raliable. Assad is Assad, not the best choice but the Russians will back them up. The Turks should be kicked out form Syira.

    How will turkey respond to SAA in afrin?
    They will send more troops to idlib to fortify borders along present lines. They well never attack manbij. That was always a bluff.

    How will SDF (PKK in Syria) respond to SAA helping afrin when US doesn’t?
    They will continue to do their job. They are paid soldiers. They work for money and the Pentagon pays them well

    Will turkey ever capture afrin?
    No. They will go Only a few kilometers into the border, but never enter the city of afrin.

  • Superfly

    The Turkeys will sustain very high casualties and like their Saudi masters in Yemen, will get bogged down in the Syrian graveyard.

  • Lingua Franca

    According to reports from Aleppo, the Syrian Army rejected the YPG American puppets’ offer because they latter refused to hand over their weapons to Damascus.

  • John Mason

    According to al-masdar news the SAA rejected the offer from the YPG unless they hand in their weapons to the SAA. Apparently the YPG refused but the SAA will allow them to pass through SAA territory. Clever from SAA not to get involved directly in confronting the Turks and the sly mongrels, YPG are running out of time.

      The Afrin Kurds are starting to worry, they are about to lose more border area NNE and NW.
      SAA should wait for a better agreement, which is coming soon. :)

      • John Mason

        Exactly and while the Turk proxies and Kurds are killing each other it makes the job for SAA much easier.
        Just out of interest. “During the 1920s and 1930s, many Russians were killed in war with the invading Basmachi groups, the British Empire organized and financed armed terror groups, who terrorized the population of the south Russia for nearly twenty years. They were the jihadists of the time. Ironically, some of them were the Kurds demanding to give them a part of Russia to form their own country”.
        Kurds still at it.

      • velociraptor

        You again support the foreign enemies of Syria!!!

        • PZIVJ

          OH crap, I thought you were Solomon at first glance! :DDD
          So do you think the Afrin Kurds have enough fire power to deal with this incursion? The maps say otherwise.

          • velociraptor

            I did not wrote about Kurds. I wrote about turks. ;)
            Again, you support an invasion. Earlier in south, now in north.

            This is not the war of kurds. This is game between USA and Turkey. Turkey does not atack with full force, because knows, yanks enter Afrin. Yesterday the alks in Ankara between yanks ans turks lasted 3,5 hours. Allegedly no result. So, the kurds will be successful in that amount, how many allow yanks for turks.

          • PZIVJ

            “yanks enter Afrin” LOL
            Give me a fricking break. SDF and US coalition are east of Manbij.

          • velociraptor

            and kurds several airportss in afrin

            Ah so the Turks slide the US into Afrin, “Kurdistan” just got bigger !

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        They refused to give up their arms and gave everything to the SAA so what better deal nothing to be said unless they surrender their arms, just like what happened to Arabs with ISIS the Kurds ran and left them on their own. Kurds did the same nonsense in Iraq so traitors to a country should be tried in civil court. Then death sentence pronounced on the ring leaders.

        • PZIVJ

          The Iraqi general that surrendered Mosul has been sentenced to death. Excellent decision. Any news on this?

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Iraq is getting invaded by NATO now as the US is pushing them to build a base for a long time. Hopefully Haidar Al-Abadi can prevent it from happening or outright refuse as they have been for weeks. The Iraqi General Mahdi Al-Gharawi that was in 2017, April 11 the same time as Tomahawk Trump did everything to cover up the scandal of the charges.

  • Akar

    The rapid advance? Actually this is the slowest operation done by the Turkish army in their history of ottoman empire. Anyway I don’t trust this report as it seems fake.

  • RichardD

    There’s nothing on SANA or AMN about this, it’s fake news from the looks of it.

  • Hassadnah Abraham

    the only was to stop war in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan is to fight against USA ground troop and in the air.

  • Sephy

    It’s highly unlikely now.

  • χρηστος

    to late now. if they worked together with saa ,now things would be different…..Turks would never have invaded…..you have ‘liberated’ Syrian soil from ISIS but then ‘occupied’ it,,,,,true patriots (since Kurds are Syrians as well) would work alongside with the legit government not the butchers that enslaved and killed your people….

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      that would been counter productive for the over all plan of the ones fighting to free Syria from the NATO/israel attack, which turkey was and is the major supplier of isis, no matter what they call them selves from time to time of arms, along with the germans and anglozionist c*nts.

      When russia first got involved they allow the isis to spread its forces all over Syria and break them up so they become isolated individual targets and not one big army with all is resources in what they controlled so winning and moving fast in a very difficult morphological area as afrin does not make you a winner but give you a lot of logistical problems, like supply and support. And if intelligent you must ask your self why is so easy for you to move so fast against an army that proved itself to be a very competent opponent, not with words but with action against isis.

      So…… Mηδενα προ του τελους μακαριζε.

  • hvaiallverden

    Wise move, and I hope this makes trust, established, for the Kurds and the Syrians, for more, wise moves.
    And an blessing to them all, no exceptions.
    Blessed be the peace makers.

    peace

    In the Euphrates valley, U.S. and allies prepare for the final outcome against the ennemy, who’s ISIS, ISIL, Al-Sham, Al-Qaïda. YPG doesn’t escape internationnaly. Nor PKK but ISIS, ISIL, Al-Sham, Al-Qaïda.
