SDF Recaptures Positions East Of Ras Al-Ayn From Turkish Forces

Late on October 19, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) recaptured several key positions which fell into the hands of Turkish-backed militants recently, according to the North Press Agency (NPA).

“SDF regains control of villages which Turkish-backed opposition groups have infiltrated earlier today, east of Ras al-Ayn,” the agency quoted its reporter in northeast Syria as saying

Early in the morning, militants of the Syrian National Army (SNA) backed by battle tanks of the Turkish Armed Forces advanced east of the border town of Ras al-Ayn, capturing the towns of al-Shakariyah, Haji Hisso and Jan Tamir.

The attack was a clear violation of the U.S. sponsored ceasefire that was accepted by Turkey two days ago. As a part of the ceasefire agreement Kurdish fighters should withdraw from the “safe-zone” along Turkey’s border.

Despite the repeated Turkish attacks around Ras al-Ayn, a convoy of first responders and medical personnel was able to enter the town in the afternoon. Dozens of injured people and corpses were reportedly evacuated from the war-torn town.

    The Kudish leadership is guilty of sedition and the SDF rank and file are draft dodgers, as are many of the refugees that the Turks seek to resettle in the border zone. A general amnesty has reportedly been issued to give these people a fresh start. But if they don’t take advantage of it and continue in their criminal ways. They may lose absolution under it for past transgressions.

      Blah blah.

      Some old sectarian song.

      And Assad is a mass murderer, but who cares.

        Assad didn’t mass murder anyone. It’s the Yinon plan axis of terror that you shill for that spent $100 billion on a failed regime change invasion and war that is guilty of mass murder.

        As far as the Kurds go. Your arguments would never stand up in a court of law. And that may be where they’re heading if they don’t start cooperating.

    “The top Kurdish commander in Syria, General Mazlum Kobane told @NBCNews he is trying to pull his forces back from Ras al-Ayn, but Turkey is not allowing it. He alleges Turkey does not want Kurdish fighters to withdraw – a condition of the ceasefire – but to kill them”

      The Kurds thought the US mobs were their friends, because the Kurds also acted as mobs. “We are equal partners” in crime.
