Support SouthFront

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have launched a counter-offensive against Turkish-backed militants south of the border town of Ras al-Ayn in northern al-Hasakah.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) confirmed early on October 31 that the Kurdish-led group managed to recapture the villages of Abu Rasin, al-Manakh, al-Sibatiyah, Rajlah al-Hamrah, and al-Qasimiyah.

Militants of the so-called Syrian National Army (SNA) captured these five villages and few others on October 30 with direct support from the Turkish military.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the SDF clashed with the militants. However, they initially failed to halt the militants’’ advance. As a result, several army units opted to withdraw from the area.

The SNA attack was a major violation of Turkey’s agreement with Russia and the U.S. This violation was not the first by Turkish-backed militants and won’t likely be the last.

The map picture is clearly not in agreement with the political vision of this site :)


Again why does anyone take this joke of group seriously, i.e The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), they are in London not in the ground in Syria.

The ususl primitive crap antilogistics.

Its well known they get a lot of information in there and most stuff from them actually seemes to be correct in the context, they have.

They use interet and mobile phones. Have You ever heard about them.

No handwriting, no envolopes, no stamps, no mailman , ni local Syrias speaking pgeons as well.

Those are on the grpound by sources and dont lie. They sometimes only have framents and bring them. They sometrimes bring details, which impress me.

You mainly bring crap and certainly would bring crap even if You were there.

The turkish pigs and bitches shall be annihilated. I wonder why Syria simply does not joint the Russian Federation. It will immediately bring peace in the entire Middle East. FUCK TURKEY, FUCK ALL TERRORISTS THE US, TURKEY AND UK SUPORT.

the remnants of the ottoman empire should be partitioned

Jens Holm

It is. But I aree and has written it many times.

There is a limit of seize for old Emirate Dictator structures and in their one string structures dont see the corners as weell as being able to change things(hopefully to the better).

In too many things I only see many smaller Ottomans.

So I also see several of those socalled countries having a modern advanced structure in the center or partions, where locals knows things and therefore can make the needed changes.

It very strange to me so many trust and in the same time fear and accept conditions like that.

Iraq, Lebanon and Syria are chaos only to me. People there are raised to be enemies to each other as well as neighbour countries. We see even the lowest arabs and Turks thinking they are above anybody else. As long as that continue, I am against any help to there.

Why should west spend time, mopney and even lives for anything like that. So I support hardly none there part from the non fighting internal and external refugees.

Asads and Erdogans say they have succesm but font care for real for the non fightings, which somehow are the normal human beings in that region.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
