Syrian Army Will Enter Manbij And Kobane To Rescue Mighty SDF From Turks

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE: Sputnik/Mikhail Alaeddin

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is preparing to enter the cities of Manbij and Kobane in the eastern and northern Aleppo countryside under a historical agreement with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), al-Mayadeen reported late on October 13, citing Syrian sources.

“Syrian Army will enter Manbij in Aleppo eastern countryside and Ain al-Arab [Kobane] in Aleppo northern countryside within 48 hours,” the Lebanese news channel reported.

Prior to al-Maydeen’s report Mohammed Shaheen, an official in the SDF’s political wing, told North-Press that the SAA will enter Manbij.

The deployment of the SAA is reportedly aimed at stopping Turkish forces, which are conducting a military operation in the region. Turkish-backed Syrian militants captured dozens of villages and town along Turkey’s border in the last few days, with the SDF failing to repel their attacks.

Earlier, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan vowed to attack Kurdish forces in Manbij. U.S. Secretary of Defense also announced that all U.S. troops will be withdrawing from northeast Syria. These developments likely encouraged the Damascus government and the SDF to reach an agreement.

The upcoming hours will likely reveal more details about the agreement between Damascus and the SDF. Some activists are already reporting that the SAA will be deployed in the entire northeast region and not only in Manbij and Kobane.

    Finally some kurdish leaders see the light, too bad we had to put turkish guns to your heads.

    • Garga

      First let’s see if it’s true and then if they see through their part of negotiations, the thing which didn’t happen last time and the result was loss of Afrin and northern Aleppo.

      But Ayn-al-Arab (I dislike the wrong name, Kobani) and Manbij are on the west side of Euphrates. “Letting” SAA come and defend them there is no sign of SDF cooperation (remember that Rojava leaders were different with SDF leaders, they were thrown under the bus). SDFshows they are wise and indeed seeing the light when the same thing happened to the east of Euphrates.

      I’m not holding my breath for SDF and it’s parent/offsprings to come to their senses anytime soon. I’ll be surprised if they do it before losing the entire border strip.

      • Sasan Jamshidi

        Wong name kobani while puting iranian avatar! Yes praise arabs that fucked iranian ancestors and modern arabization of north syria and displacing kurds in times of hafez assad. Really you are a fake iranian and traitor to motherland.

    • Icarus Tanović

      Seems like so.

    • Sasan Jamshidi

      What finally? Kurds time to time asked for assad to recognise their basic human rights and autonomous government under syrian territory it was assad that couldnt remove that chuvinistic “Ultra Arabic” thing (if you read history syria is fake made ny britain alongside iraq and jordan and lebanon and also syria doesnt belong to arabs originally). And assadists always denied those rights kurds were even ready to fight to take idlib for the regime.

  • Boxman

    Wow talk about waiting ‘til the last minute! If there weren’t such a pressing need to stop the Turks from annexing more Syrian territory, I would say hang the Kurds out to dry. But there is a shared interest here. If Turkey is allowed to run over the Kurds, all that Syrian territory will be lost forever.

    • frankly

      So forever for western people is like 10 minutes, for ME people it’s 5 years, about how long it’s taken Assad to reclaim his country, with a little help from his friends. Even with big trucks it’s hard to stay where you aren’t wanted.

  • jim crowland

    Noble Kurds, cut a deal with GASsad soon…..may be both armies can srtike back at the ottomans and partition the remnant of the turks territory along with armenians, greeks and russians

  • jim crowland

    irak, Syria, lebanon and perhaps jordan should be merged into one arab nation but releasing the kurds so they can have a cuntry too. both arabs and kurds should enter turkey

      Keep believing otherwise Turk, but your neo ottoman dreams are FUCKED!
      It is Turkey and their stupid Jihadi proxy mercernarys against all major regional and global (read: nuclear) powers.
      But keep your dreams for some days or weeks.. When you wake up, all you Turks can do is say: “Please Putin, Please Trump, Please Assad, and Please Kurds, dont hurt us, we will crawl back into our Turkish shit hole if you stop hurting us..”

      • Sencer

        I have no idea about Manbij , but Erdogan will never allow Ayn Al Arab to be taken from YPG by SAA. Ayn Al Arab is the symbol YPG in the eyes of Turkish public, thus Erdogan needs to eradicate YPG himself. He will not leave this task to SAA.

        Most probably he will even avoid using FSA there and do it directly with Turkish troops. We will see.

        • EveryoneIsBiased

          I thought you are only doing this op to end the terror threat?
          not for political reasons like you mentioned, not against Syria, Russia and Assad?
          Not for Erdogans ego?
          Funny how those propaganda lies fall apart even for supporters like you.
          But like you said. We will see. We will see how you shoot your self and your once proud country in the foot, only to serve the ego of Erdogan.
          And in the end you will have hurt your country that you did not revive the Adana agreement. But then it will be too late, you under sanctions from most of the world, shunned by every regional and global power, east and west, north and south, your economy even more ruined, dozens of not 100s dead turkish soldiers, billions wasted, only to be humilated because you rejected the Adana agreement revival as proposed by Putin.
          I get your patriotism and i dont doubt it. But by following your heart instead of pragmatically your brain, your only hurt yourself.

          • Sencer

            I just stated a fact, I did not say I was supporting it LOL.
            Not all of us are Erdogan voters.

      Yeah………..and after Manbij………….Viena again!!!!!!!!!!!……..dumbass

      • Sencer

        He didnt say anything like that, your perception is weird.
        Siege of Vienna was more than 300 years ago , just grow up and deal with your childhood traumas. Times have changed.

        • EveryoneIsBiased

          Sure. Like you Turks are still traumatized, that your empire went to shit over 100 years ago.
          Occupying Syria like in Afrin wont change that Trauma.. Therapy might help though.

          • Sencer

            The days of Empires are gone dear , noone yearns for empire anymore but a small percentage of day dreamers only. We both know a simple fact though , SAA would never ever take Afrin or North Syria back if TR did not involve. Neither Assad nor Russian would/could deal with Americans and send them of out of NSyria.

            True or false ?

          • EveryoneIsBiased

            False. The US occupation would have ended anyway sooner rather than later.
            Trump NEEDED to get out in the next weeks, because he badly needed to tell his voters he recuses the “stupid wars” and middle east occupations.
            You turks may truly believe you are doing this not for selfish reasons, but everyone else sees through these lies you are fed by your media and gov.
            And i really dont get why you try to promote this BS here.
            At least in alternative media, but also in the majority of MSM, it is a open fact, that you Turks were the logistical right hand of ISIS, and that you are the main sponsor of the Jihadis in Idlib. Add that to your efforts to Jihadize Afrin, make turkish the main language, change demographics which even in MSM is reported widely.

            And especially here on SF EVERYONE know this fact.
            So why waste your time here, where everyone know better?

          • Sencer

            Let me decide where to spend my time , thanks for the advice though.
            Pleasde aqlso let the people in SF speak for theirselves unless they appointed you as the spox of SF .

            US is in Afghanistan since last 18 years and counting. Ditto for Iraq.
            You can claim that they were about to leave Syria soon, but can not present me a single evidence for that. If Turkey had not intervened , they were about to create a Kurdish state statring from Iranian border to Iskenderun thorugh Afrin. If you can not see this fact you are either lying or living in another dimension.

            All EU , NATO , US was behind Jihadis as a Gladio operation. Thats the reason why all west still uprises when someone bombs Idlib. At least we saw the mistake and got out in time.

          • EveryoneIsBiased

            1. Trump has made this campaign promise central to his survival, and since the last attempt of him, has given clear timelines to his subordinates, that this will be done before the end of his term. this was widely reported, if in turkish press too, i dont know and i dont care.
            2. Kurds cloud NEVER establish a state, if they could, they would have already done so. They have neither the resources, nor the political backing.
            The US policy was to never allow that to happen, and the kurds were depended on US funding totally.
            But for that to understand, you would need an understanding of international law, and what constituates a state, and read reports other than the war propaganda of your sociopathic system.
            3. Yes, EU, NATO US was behind Jihadis. But YOU were too, and YOU were central to the whole operation as logistical hub, and as a diplomatic messenger.
            And even when those western NATO states and most gulf states ended your funding, you STILL SUPPORT TO THIS DAY the Jihadis in Idlib, direct and indirect.
            They are YOUR proxys, otherwise you would have no seat in Astana anyway.
            You “saw the mistake”.. Yes, on ISIS, but only after the would not succumb to doing Erdogans bidding, and after Russian pressure. The Jihadis in Idlib on the other hand…

          • FlorianGeyer

            Well said.

          • EveryoneIsBiased

            Thanks Florian. Even though the Turkish trolls are immune to reality.

          • Sencer

            If you liked it that much , above comment is also open for you to reply.

          • Sencer

            1.US is still in Afghanistan and Iraq, but suddenly decides to get out of only Syria with immediate effect. Trump made a sudden decision and did not change his mind against all the bipartisan pressure, but according to you, it was ‘ clear timelines and it was widely reported ‘ .

            Please tell us what was the timeline of withdrawal of US troops from Syria, please guide us to the Schedule , so that everyone can make use of ‘secret reports’ you are basing your argument on.

            2.Kurds almost established their state . They were at the brink of reaching mediterranean if TR did not stop with the with Euphrastes shield . Are you telling me that YPG was not aiming Al Bab / Jarablus Range to connect Kobani / Afrin kantons if TR did not intervene ?

            3.Kurdish statelet which controlled almost all gas fields a great percentage of farmlands and water sources had more than enough sources to become a state. In fact they had more sources than Assad did that they time. And almost all EU , US ,England and Canada was ready to accept them as an independent counrty. In short they had everything that ‘ constituates a state’

            This is realpolitik, they need a second state there for supporting Israel and a military base to attack Iran/Turkey when/if time comes. While doing that they use gullible people like you blabbering about international laws and some imaginery sociopathic systems ..

            Please dont hesitate to revert for above , so that we can further discuss some realpolitik about mostly Syrian citizen jihadis of Idlib..

          • FlorianGeyer

            I agree, and setting the rabid Wahabi dogs of theft ,rape and murder on the Kurdish population displays the cowardice of the Turkish leadership, and by extension the Turkish Army.

    • EveryoneIsBiased

      Deleting your own post? Seems even you realized that nobody here falls for your stupid Erdogan lies.

        I will gladly support Assad if he want end zio-kurd project. I m not voter of my goverment and I didint like they actions in syria. But for me most important object in this matter is pkk and they are lossing well now…

    • EveryoneIsBiased

      Okay, seems you did not delete your post, but Disqus deleted it. Seems Disqus thinks you are a propaganda or spam bot.
      my answer to your last post:

      Okay, that we can agree on.

      Seems you are not one of those
      Erdogan bots that infest this site everytime some article on Kurds or
      the Turkish occupation is posted here.

  • EveryoneIsBiased

    BEAUTIFUL!
    This spells the END of US+Turkish+Gulf+NATO occupation, SOONER RATHER THAN LATER!
    Everyone on the side of a free and wholely liberated Syria should rejoice! This is what we waited for since 2011!
    And a bonus: US standing in middle east is now doomed, even if it will take some years. Putin has replaced US as the central power broker, and all the US deep state can do is CRY!

    Turkey does though have a massive problem entirely of her own making. The many thousands of Wahabi mercenaries that Turkey and others in the US Coalition of Terror have armed and trained will be militarily trapped on the borders of Turkey.

    IF, and I repeat IF this does come to pass, Turkey will have to feed his unwanted mercenaries into Europe. Karma indeed, even though I live in the EU.

    There are also the issues of Idlib and the SAA forces needed to liberate that province, together with some sort of Second Front of Wahabi’s near Israel funded by Israel/US ,in order drain further SAA resources.

    Can’t help but think the attack on Saudi oilfields has F.uk.us and evil co-conspirators realizing how totally overextended they truly are.

    Faced with ineffectual defenses, i.e. Iron Doom and ever increasing displays of capable foes, maybe the MIC are thinking we pop this balloon and maybe we won’t be able to put humpty dumpty back together again.

    Then who will pay for the F 35 and all our other money making schemes, when all the arm chair generals are so busy practising how to say “just kidding” in Arabic, Chinese, Russian etc…, and the US public are loudly demanding, where’s are fucking food damn it!

    Well no doubt they got plenty more dirty backup plans. But I think they miscalculated the old enough is enough point by a few genocides and payback could be pricey. Yuh them phoney greenbacks won’t work so good any more. Make it real or no deal.

  • χρηστος

    im sure that the Kurdish politicians changed their minds with a gun pointing at their heads and im not sure it was a Turkish gun. they act so stupid everywhere. In Iraq they took arms against their government for what?money…to be exact oil. they have ‘liberated’ territory that was oil rich and didint want to gibve it back although it had no Kurdish population there. ring a bell? Deir Ezzor? oil fieds?no kurdish population there? all that the Kurdish politicians are worried about is money. their money. they dont really care about those fighting and spilling their blood. thats why they havent been able to unite all Kurdish fractions and have in some cases ended up fighting one another.
