SDF Commander Says US-backed Forces Will Never Handover Any Area To Syrian Government. Russia and Syria Discuss Repairing Euphrates Dam

Omid Kabar

On October 1, Omid Kabar a commander of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said at a funeral for SDF fighters who were killed in Raqqa city that the SDF will not handover al-Tabqah town or any other area to the Syrian government.

The regime says we will hand over our regions or al-Tabqah town to the regime’s army … Our people must realize that within five years of our revolution as the People Protection Units and after our alliance with other factions in the name of Syrian Democratic Forces, we have not handed over any inch of our land… We will never hand it over. Our law is clear. The land that is watered with the blood of the martyrs belongs to the people and we will not hand them over to any force,” Kabar said.

Moreover, Kabar claimed that over 300 Syrian Army (SAA) soldiers defected to the SDF during the “last period”. However, Kabar did reveal no details or proofs.

Kabar’s  statement is a reflection of the SDF policy that publicly refuses working with the Syrian government in any way. However, in reality the SDF is not only working with the Syrian government to run the areas under its control, but also cooperating with key figures of the so called “Syrian Regime”.

While Kabar was attacking the Syrian government, Syria Water Resources Minister Nabil al-Hassan discused with Kirill Molodtsov, Deputy Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation, in Damascus plans to repair the Euphrates, Tishrin and Baath dams on the Euphrates river, according to the Syrian state TV.

As the three dams are under the SDF control, it will be impossible to repair any of them without an agreement between the SDF and the Syrian government. Such an agreement might be much more possible than some want to believe.

Kurdish sources confirmed on September 14 that Syrian mobile network provider Syriatel services are again available in Raqqa countryside, al-Tabqah town and some parts of Raqqa city itself. The services were back after Syriatel repaired its towers in the SDF-held areas.

What’s interesting in this is that Syriatel is owned by Rami Makhlouf, the cousin of Syria president Bashar al-Assad. The SDF closely worked with Makhluf to restore communication in its areas.

Furthermore, the Kurdish-Iraqi news agency Rudaw confirmed in a report on June 7, that the SDF handed over the management of the Rmelan oil fields in al-Hasakah governorate to Syria Petroleum and Mineral Resources Ministry. Later, it was confirmed that the Syrian government started shipping oil to its areas from Rmelan fields through the Khanasir road.

The SDF “success” in running and managing the large areas it has captured in Syria is a result of cloose cooperation with the Syrian government. The Euphrates dam or the recently captured oil and gas fields by the SDF in the Deir Ezzor governorate will not likely be an exception.

Right now the SDF is not able to fully consumption, export or even refining the oil of these fields on its own. With the US and EU sanctions it will also impossible to the SDF to allow foreign companies to invest in these fields.

If the SDF is planning to make any sort of profit out of these oil and gas fields, the only way will be by working with the Syrian government. Rmelan oil fields are for sure a live example of this.

    zio arrogance only can be answered with appropriate actions … dream on kurds/sdf/israhell

  • MD Ranix

    kudos to the russian led coalition for their advancement to inevitable victory

  • RGtz98

    Had a nice laugh when I read that , but really kurds should at most be granted a bit of autonomy rarher than be seperated and they should remember their history especially with the US and their allies executing them or doing nothing and now they want to ‘help’ the kurds ‘gain their independence’

    • Kell

      The Kurds are disposable to the US, maybe not to israel but Israel is now being done away with by the Elites.
      Remember Northern Iraq 1990s.
      I to once thought the Kurds had their right to a place in the sun, maybe they do in Turkey but after seeing their land grabbing parasite behavior like everyone said they would do and shooting their mouths off arrogantly every 5 minutes I frankly have little sympathy for them..

      • Jens Holm

        You seemes to prefare ISIS has those areas, which mainly has/had kurdish majority.

        Tha bacdads had to call in USA as us with all kind of help. If not they want even close to suburbs of Tikrit.

        Im very impressed by Your ignorance of facts. Thats hardly Bagdad shias as well as Turkey and Iran. And many Sunnis are ISIS and You have and have have etnic cleanssing as well as the last christians there are leaving to other countries.

        • Lone Wolf

          @disqus_4i0qg70fp2:disqus You will find most of the Kurds have since move onto Germany .. lol .. !!!
          SAA is still made up a lot with the Sunnis Muslim… and also Christians and Druze and Alawite and Kurds too …
          And there are a lot of Sunnis in the Iraq Army too ..

          • Jens Holm

            Just because Germans are nice people and has taken meany in doesnt say they will take all 30 millionsI assume You have made up with the 400.000 dead and the 8-10 mio refugees as well.

            Sunnias are in all camps exept Hesbollah and som turkish kurds in Qabasin.

            You forget a vital credential. If You say You are a country, it true if You take well care of all people, so they work for it.

            Being an obeying sheep or being killed is not.

          • Florian We

            Germans are also very tired of criminal kurds, the entire Heroin business is in their hands, very nice people really.

          • Lone Wolf

            Me .. ? 400 000 dead .. where … ? what is 8-10 mio refugess …? … are you making things up as you go along …? how convenient for you …
            You must be like a 12 yr old ..

          • dutchnational

            Reports are over 400.000 dead in Syria as a result of the civil war.

            Reports too state over 8-10 million internal displaced persons, IDP’s, a nice word for refugees.

            If you only count as refugees those that are abroad, my guess is app 1 mln Europe, 3-4 million Turkey, 200k Iraq, 1.5 mln Jordan, close to a million in Lebanon and some in other countries, so alltogether some 6 million external refugees.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Those 1.2 million are now Germans and no longer Syrians they fear the PKK/YPG even Kurds know who are the terrorists are . The numbers you keep spouting are old and most of the IDP are in Govt controlled areas.

            The Syrian govt is doing it’s best to resettle people in the region and if they could finally get the funding for those 325,000 that eat up 2/3 of the worlds budget for relief would be great. The US is just not willing to let go of these purse strings of the money set aside for Syrian relief.

            Now stop your trying to think these Kurds are capable of running themselves as they are only good at running their mouths. Time for you to start to realize heart can’t rule the head in logic.

          • Igor Dano

            The Germans have to do, what Jewess, Frau Merkel (maternal side is jewish from Poland), will tell them to do. And Merkel gets her script from Soros, hence I see another 10million in Germany.

          • FlorianGeyer

            The ethnic Germans are indeed a dignified race BUT they do not want their heritage to be erased by Zionist greed and intrigue.
            The zionist goal is to eradicate the German race and replace it with a mongrel society. This Zionist ambition even went as far as to demand the sterilisation of all German males after WW2.

      • TheLulzWarrior

        Israel would have to attack either Syria directly or attack Iraq through Jordan, to save the Kurds. Doubt they are going to do that.

    • Brother Ma

      What do you mean.syro kurds already had autonomy before the war started in around 2011 anyway.

      • dutchnational

        There is no formal autonomy for anybody within Syria, it is an unitary state with all controls in Damascus.

        In practice, at this moment, northern Syria is autonomous as is Idlib as in out of central government control.

        • Brother Ma

          Thanks nederlander .we know that.all im saying is that prewar kurds had autonony of sorts.you know like quebec in canada.

  • John Winter

    US will leave shortly with yet another lose Russia and Syria are winning

    • Rob

      There are total 2% Kurds in all Kurds occupied regions and 2% Israeli refugees in Israeli occupied regions. Israeli refugees have full nationality of America, UK and NATO. They have sent them to the Middle East for instability of whole regions in the Middle East.

      Israeli refugee state and Kurdistan is like an air filled inflated balloons which are air filled inflated by American, UK and NATO political institutions. If someone remove air from these balloons then how much mass left that is the actual total mass or population of these Israel and kurds but on the other side Palestine, Iraq and Syria are rock solid populated nations which nobody can deny.

      So Israeli refugees and Kurds and their creators should not show so much smartness to the world. Everybody knows Israel and Kurds reality.

      • vinnyvan

        > There are total 2% Kurds in all Kurds occupied regions

        A bit more, but still they are minority in SDF-held territories. Kurds are majority only in Afrin, Kobani and eastern Hesake governate.

        • Rob

          I know Kurds areas and their population just pick up seven years old map and wikipedia etc.

  • hhabana

    I have said it more than once, after ISIS, the next battle is with Kurds.

    • χρηστος

      no it wont come to that. kurds face extinction without US backing them up. but what they have achieved with their arrogance is making all other countries enemies. Russia, Turkey, Iran, Iraq, SYria….so when its all over with ISIS they will sit on the negotiation table try to win on paper as much as they can and leave. they are expandable for the US. will back them up as long as it can but wont fight for them.

  • Mountains

    Assad is a weak ruler. Nobody could have saved him from the revolution except for major powers like Russia and US and now it seems like the ball has turned.

    If Russia leaves and the US leaves. I favor the Kurds knocking his head off clean. His to relied on foreign forces and hiding behind them

    • Lone Wolf

      @disqus_vWQIi3T2uz:disqus YPG is a Militia force only .. without US heavy support and constant US Air Support … They are just a another rag tag Militias … even ISIS is more lethal and have more experience then them …

  • EmilyEnso

    So the Kurds will not vacate invaded and occupied Syria and will clearly build US bases across it.
    This can only be taken as a declaration of war.
    And I hope it comes to them,
    Both Syria and Russia have vowed to reclaim the entire country.
    Lets watch them do it and cheer them on.

    Kurds promotes ethnic division how can illegitimate in approve terrorist organization lay claim on national interest just as USA and ISIS.All Amrican operation should be stop with immediate effect.Because USA gives false hope to Kurds to camouflage USA terrorism in Syria,Lybia,Iraq,Yemen,Ukraine and Afganistan.If not stop we will soon witness Arabs and Kurds war which will result in ethnic division and sectarian.Weapons will be given by USA coalition as usual.

  • Langaniso Mhlobo

    This stupid Kurds are war opportunists.Much cheaper then USA gay prostitutes of Washington.

  • Deo Cass

    What a whole lot of crap! These measures of limited co-operation by the US/Zionist/Kurdish invaders and occupeirs of Syrian sovereign land are only temporary until the artificial state of Rojava is created and declares independence from Syria and US and European companies come in to take their booty, Syria’s oil and gas resources from the mouth of the Syrian people. This is the more evident by the direct challenge this US/Zionist commander is launching against the Syrian state’s authority and juristiction over Syria’s sovereign territory calling the US/Zionist aggression, invasion, occupation and land grab of Syrian sovereign land as ‘revolution’ against the Syrian government. It is noteworthy here that ISIS are not even being mentioned by this US/Zionist slave since ISIS and SDF are one and the same thing. There is no consolation price for the sole legitimate and elected Syrian government here. The Syrian government and its allies will either take what belongs to them by force at least what remains to be recovered on the Eastern banks of the Euphrates river NOW or the Syrian state will de facto cease to exist. The biggest disappointment here is Russia. Supposedly Russia is in Syria legally, being officially invited by the elected Syrian government while the so called US coalition prescence in Syria is totally illegal and amounts to an unprovoked aggression and invasion of a UN member state. Yet Russia acts as though it is the one who has an illegal presence in Syria not the US, letting the US dictate terms to Russia and also letting the US assassinate its top general without even reacting, if not directly, at least by doubling its effort on the Estern banks of the Euphrates river to make its point clear that the illegal US/Zionist coalition has no authority to order it around in Syria. This cowardly behaviour by Russia is even more series than one could imagine, because it is no secret that the US is using Syria as a dress rehearsal for its planned aggression against the Russian mainland. The faith of Russia depends on the faith of Syria and on that crucial battle for the Eastern shores of Deir Ezzur, as the faith of the Soviet union depended on the battle for Stalingrad. What will happen to Syria will happen to Russia.

  • Langaniso Mhlobo

    Syria is busy with reconciliation with the real terrorist that have surrendered and busy with one nation building.Yet another USA and Israel brainwash Kurds for own independent state in Syria are stealing national resources for one ethnic Kurds group.Under USA agreement ISIS are abandoning place to SDF and convert into one group.Any terrorist group in Syria can only legitimately surrender to the government forces to be pardon.Not illegal etching group which is funded and armed by the countries enemies USA,Israel and Saudi Arabia including puppet Nato racist crap organization under the watch full eyes of UN.

  • John Whitehot

    300 defectors?

    lololololololololol

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Those were the ones who retreated and ended up going to Qamishlo and being sent back to the SAA, this is so rich even the SDF is getting bad at lying lately.

  • dutchnational

    Interesting report.

    Deals between SDF and Assad on oilfields have been know for months and those deals being stretched to other fields has been suggested by me for some time. Glad to see this confirmed by you.

    As for the 300 tribal fighters, imo this is about the 300 tribal fighters that went over to SDF earlier when they were reported to be “missing” in south Raqqah.

    Repairs to the dam in cooperation seems likely too. SDF has just more or less repaired the 8th Tabqah dam generator, but I do not know if or how far Syria was involved in that.

    Cooperation with central government is something SDF is not adverse to, as long as it is cooperation and also to the benefit of the Northern Syria Region, or rather, to mutual benefit.

    Northern Syria has much to offer, but it has demands and needs too and those must be met to an acceptable degree.

    The Kurds should remember that in this life it is prudent to ” Never say never “.

    The elected, legal, sovereign Government of Syria, told him to take a hike, because they US is not legally in Syria and has no claim to the natural resources of Syria. As the Russian jets were revving up in the background.

By doing so, he is acting as Daesh in his willingness to destroy Syria. I hope that Syria will have the strength and the support of all its allies to fight thoses racist gangsters

    He is just lying. If this were true….. why SDF is moving southeast to capture oil fields in Omar ? …. why isn’t he presenting evidence of the 300 SAA soldier who changed to SDF ? SDF has been controlled by USA, and now they have learned how to lie.

  • CyricRenner

    Kurds are not even native to Syria. Hafez Assad made the big mistake of inviting them in. This is the result. Do they think they are going to annex all that land they presently occupy. Syria should cut a deal with Turkey using Russia and Iran as intermediaries one the last pockets of ISIS and the rest of rabble are rounded up. Vacate occupied land or face destruction. We will see much how much stomach their American and Israeli backers have at that point. Mind you, this Kurdish Commander whoever the hell he is hardly the spokesmen for all the Kurds in Northern Syria. There are many different groups. I have heard this windbag before though. He is complete zionist stooge. Russian Air Force, if you are reading this, do the world a favour and take him out. Hey, accidents happen do they not ? Besides, the Zionist filth gave ISIS the intel resulting in the death of the Russian general recently. Russians always get payback and payback is owed.

  • THEMBA

    The Kurds are nit the ones pushing for all USA is behind all this Rubbish of trying to divide the ME to allow itself to set military bases so they need the Kurds to achieve that but this is clear occupation and I doubt if Assad & Putin will allow this nonsense to go on forever. We can have tribes wanting to separate and form their own state in a country , will USA allow the native Americans have their own staterms in the USA. The USA disguised as Nato is the only problem in SYRIA overall in the whole of ME ,their appetite to set up military bases all over the world to maintain their dominance is the very driving force . USA imposed sanctions on Russia over Ukraine but now they want to occupy Syria without consequences. If this world wants peace all countries must close down American military bases coz that’s exactly where the US is able to launch its unjustified wars from .They have the largest number of military bases in the world ,has the world ever asked itself WHY? AMERICANS SHARE THE SAME BLOOD LINE AS EUROPEANS ,ACTUALLY AMERICANS IN POWER IN THE USA ARE EUROPEANS that’s why they the EU is always behind the rubbish USA does, so Europeans are actually the cause of disorder in this world . USA & EU want to control everything .
