Northeastern Syria Administration Calls For Total Mobilization Following Erdogan Threats

Source: hawarnews.com

On December 12, the Democratic Autonomous Administration (DAA) in northeastern Syria condemned Turkey’s plan to launch an attack on the region and called for a “total mobilization” to stop any such aggression.

“Erdogan’s [Turkish President] goal is not the north and east of Syria, but the Syrian territorial unit. At the time when IS utter their last breath in Deir ez-Zor, Erdogan is trying, through his threats, to invade Syria to ease them and prolong their life,” the DAA, which govern the areas held by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), said in an official statement.

Furthermore, the DAA called on the international community, the US-led coalition and NATO countries to take a stand against “Erdogan’s aggressive plans” and prevent any attack on northeastern Syria.

“We also call on the Syrian government to take the official position against this threat because Erdogan wants to occupy a part of Syria and this means an attack on the Syrian sovereignty,” the DAA added.

Erdogan had vowed to launch a military operation in the SDF-held area within a few days. According to Syrian opposition sources, the operation, which will likely be carried out by the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA), will target the border city of Tell Abyad.

Since the beginning of this month, the US-led coalition has established several observation posts along the SDF-held part of the Syrian-Turkish border, including a post near Tell Abyad. However,  U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis said that these posts will address Turkey’s “legitimate” concerns, which raises the question if Ankara and Washington had reached an agreement behind the SDF’s back.

    Unfortunately the kurds where never more than bargaining chips to be sold at a profit or written off when the profit passes. Its not like they have any recent experience with being left holding the bag when something goes wrong.

    Cough afrin
    Cough kirkuk
    Cough gulf war 1

    But who knows maybe the us will fight turkey for them….but I wouldnt bet a dollar nevermind my life on it. Maybe they can get some amnesty if they high tail to the nearest syrian government town.

    The US needs Turkey more than it needs the Kurds.
    How many times does the US have to back stab the Kurds before they realize they are disposable in Americas eyes.

      Whatever anyone thinks of the Syrian Kurds, they are certainly not naive. I doubt they ever expected the U.S. to be their best friend forever. If the U.S. does abandon them, they will still have ended up much, much better armed and trained today than if the U.S. never showed up at all.

      Could they seriously repel a Turkish invasion? Not forever, but they would make it damn costly with all the ATGMs the U.S. gave them. Think Houthis and smoking hulks of Saudi/UAE armor. They probably have enough MANPADS to make Turkish ATAK choppers nervous, but the Kurds (like the Houthis) are defenseless against air strikes from 5000m.

    the kurds are just PAWNS…they are used like a pimp uses his whore…..and what happens with PAWNS and WHORES once they are useless??? thats your answer for the kurdish future as a whole…….but maybe u should all think about the BIGGER picture instead of hopping on each and every fucking article or news break like a rabbit.If anybody here believes that ALL moves by TAF are nor coordinated and APPROVED by nato/US Command you´d better watch alice in wonderland.Might learn something from the movie.
    so whats the bigger picture…

    a Nato member(turkey) invaded and occupied northern parts of SYRIA.
    a Nato(s) member(USA/FRANCE) invaded and occupied east SYRIA.

    see the pattern???

    no not yet??? Question?Whats easier to explain/handle nato Occupation of north and east syria by Turkey or nato Occupation of north and east syria by USA???

    All they are doing now is exchanging their PAWNS….thats all…..LOL…. americans are and (were using ISIS)using the kurds…only the kurds are not able to hold on to that area forever, or give upp a good fight against SAA…..the turkish PAWNS(headchoppinh jihadi groups) are able to hold on to that area for??? and the ycan give SAA a hardtime…….but the OVERALL STORY does not change……

        Once its clear someone is basically just ranting I don’t bother.

    Turkey is the latest bus that the U.S. will throw the Kurds under. (is that correct grammar?) Their only real hope has been to join Syria, Join the SAA. All the U.S. wants is petro & gas. Saladin must be rolling-over in his grave.
