Four SDF Fighters, Kurdish-Iranian Leader Were Killed In Recent Turkish Drone Strikes On Syria’s Al-Qamishli

On August 10, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) acknowledged that four of its fighters were killed and three others were wounded as a result of a Turkish drone strike that targeted the northeastern Syrian town of al-Qamishli a day earlier.

In a statement, the Kurdish-led group said that the fighters were manning a post guarding a number of hospitals in al-Qamishli.

The slain fighters were identified as Ali al-Maslat, 56, Muhyiddin Ibrahim, 31, Maher Al-Ezbeh, 18, and 18-years-old woman Heaven Osman.

On the same day, the Internal Committed of the SDF’s Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria announced that Youssef Mahmoud Rabbani, a leader of the Kurdish-Iranian Kurdistan Free Life Party (PJAK), died of wounds he sustained from the August 6 Turkish drone strike on al-Qamishli.

The PJAK, which is affiliated with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), has been waging an insurgency against Iranian government forces since 2004. Rabbani was reportedly visiting northeastern Syria to boost cooperation with the SDF, which is also affiliated with the PKK.

The drone strike that fatally wounded Rabbani also killed a commander of the SDF’s military discipline unit, Mazloum Saad Eddin Asaad, and three civilians, including two children.

Turkey intensified its drone operations over SDF-held areas in northern and northeastern Syria in recent weeks in what appears to be a step down from its previous plans to launch a fully-fledged military operation against the group.

The recent strikes on al-Qamishli indicate that Turkey has significantly improved its intelligence on the SDF. Ankara may have also began to cooperate with the Iranian or even the Syrian intelligence against the group. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan hinted at such a cooperation on a number of recent occasions.

Turkey and Zionists operate as one and both are tools of global imperialist Anglo-Zionism. Russia needs to tighten the screws on the Turkeys after the Ukrainian Nazis are castrated. JAI RUS-Zindabad Iran!

A slugfest galore between adversaries representing a wide range of clashing agendas like a variety of wild predatory animals locked in a cage.

Are you kidding? It’s not so cut and dry.

The Kurds are part and parcel a Zionist golem, if anyone is. Turkey is absolutely a collaborator with international Zionism, but it’s not so simple. Turkey eliminating Kurdish partisans is actually good for Iran, as long as Turkey doesn’t launch a full invasion and seize Syrian territory (which is a terrible outcome for Iran). Ethnic separatism in Iran is both dangerous and totally sponsored by Israel. If Turkey takes out Kurdish leaders without an invasion, then Assad’s forces have a power vacuum that can be acted upon.

It is thus in Iran’s interest NOT to push for a maximalist position (complete withdrawal of Turkey from Syria) and instead make concessions to Ankara that end up being mutually beneficial. This will draw Ankara away from the Zionist entity, as they will have an easier way achieving their goals by cooperating with instead of confronting Iran.

As Indian generals saying 🤡

Only 26 posts remain out of 88 posts on the webpage that shows the Children slaughtered by the Zionists – western hackers have full control of it – look SF as I have experienced this before the next step by government spy organisations is to block your server.

Only ONE of my posts remain and that doesn’t target ZIONIST Israel-your reputation relies on you acting.
