Russia Is Establishing New Base In SDF-Held Eastern Aleppo: Monitoring Group

Russian forces are establishing a new base near the town of Manbij in the eastern countryside of Aleppo, the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on November 2.

Manbij and its surroundings are held by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) established a network of positions around the town a few years ago in order to protect it from the Turkish military and its proxies who occupy nearby areas.

According to the SOHR, the new Russian base is located some 20 kilometers away from Turkish-occupied areas in the northern Aleppo countryside, right along the M4 highway which links the governorate with northeastern Syria.

On November 3, the monitoring group released a video of the new base where the SAA also maintains an artillery positions. Several Russian military vehicles have been already deployed at the new base.

The Russian move comes amid reports of a near Turkish-led attack on SDF-held areas in northern and northeastern Syria.

In the last few days, Russian forces and the SAA held a series of joint drills in northern and northeastern Syria in coordination with the SDF. The drills demonstrated their will to confront any Turkish attack on the SDF in order to maintain stability and security.

Russia’s actions are only helping the US who should be defending the SDF who happen to be their proxy. Let the Turks wipe out the Kurds; makes one wonder who’s side Russia is on.

Well known: The enemy to Ypur enemy is Your friend.

SDF and Russians dont dislike each other. But Russia see Assads and the parts Assads almost has today much more important then the SDF parts(apart from the oil and maybee fertilizer).

I also will remind the SDF was forced to by the American retreat and the Turkish invasion. Thye will not unite with Assads on Assad conditions only.Thats how Syria lost Afrin.
