Syrian War Report – June 27, 2019: US-backed Forces Came With Fresh Demands To Damascus

One Turkish soldier was killed and 5 others were injured during clashes with the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK) in the region of Afrin, the Turkish Defense Ministry announced on June 26. According to the Defense Ministry, the clashes erupted following an attack on Turkish military positions.

The YPG-affiliated Afrin Liberation Forces (ALF) claimed responsibility for the attack saying that they had engaged Turkish forces in the village of Gilbara in the district of Sherawa. The ALF employed at least 2 anti-tank guided missiles against Turkish positions.

Since the occupation of Afrin by Turkey in early 2018, the ALF and the YPG, with assistance from the PKK, have killed and injured dozens of Turkish troops and pro-Turkish militants with ATGM, IED, sniper attacks and ambushes. This situation, as well as regular clashes between members of pro-Turkish groups, demonstrate Ankara’s inability to establish proper security in the occupied region.

One of the key problems is the essence of pro-Turkish “rebel factions”, which are mostly infiltrated by terrorist ideologies and involved in organized crime activities.

Militants killed 18 soldiers and officers of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in an attack on the town of Atshan in northern Hama, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on June 25. According to the SOHR, militants lost 6 fighters.

The “Wa Harid al-Muminin” operations room, a coalition of al-Qaeda-affiliated groups, claimed responsibility for the attack. The coalition is led by Horas al-Din. It is known for being a close ally of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda).

The June 25 incident became the biggest clash between the SAA and militants in northern Hama since the start of the Russia-Turkey-brokered ceasefire there last week.

According to local sources, the sides used this time to reinforce their positions and prepare for further battles. It remains unlikely that a political solution of the situation in Idlib can be found while the zone is primarily controlled by al-Qaeda-style terrorist groups.

Armed unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) launched by militants attacked the Russian Hmeimim airbase in the province of Lattakia in the early hours of June 26. Local sources revealed that Russian air defense systems intercepted the UAVs, which were approaching the base. Later, the Russian military confirmed this saying that 2 UAVs were eliminated. No damage or casualties were inflicted by the attack.

Ferhat Abdi Sahin, Commander-in-Chief of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), said that Syria would be a “failed state” without the northeastern region, which is controlled by the US-backed group. The Kurdish commander made the remarks during a meeting of the administration controlling the occupied region.

Sahin claimed that Syria must fully recognize the SDF-controlled administration in northeastern Syria and the SDF as a legitimate armed force fully responsible for the area if it wants to settle the situation via a political agreement. The Kurdish commander stressed that the SDF is stronger than ever, and claimed that ISIS is not posing a serious threat to the northeastern region.

This kind of demand, which would mean a de-facto recognition of the split of Syria and would officially put an end to its territorial integrity, is not likely to be accepted by the Damascus government. SDF leaders and political representatives, who once wanted to negotiate with Damascus, returned to such demands once it appeared that US troops are not going to withdraw from Syria despite Trump’s public declarations.

    That is the Israeli plan to dismember Syria, and create a failed Syrian state. Syria will maintain Iranian fraternal support until all of Syria is united and sovereign. This includes the liberation of Israeli occupied, Syrian Golan Heights. It is nonsense to demand the removal of Iranian troops form Israel as long as Israeli troops are in Syrian Golan Heights.

    • Jens Holm

      Syria has been a failed state since the French made it.

      • El Mashi

        Defeating Israel, USA, Saudia, and Turkey, makes Syria heroic, courageous, and greatly admirable in the eyes of humanity.

      • Rob

        What about ISIS and Israeli terrorist states?

    “Ferhat Abdi Sahin, Commander-in-Chief of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), said that Syria would be a “failed state” without the northeastern region, which is controlled by the US-backed group.”

    …because all Syrian Kurds truly want their OWN failed state. The SDF and the local tax extortion PYD mafia control would cease to exist without all that ADDITIONAL money and military aid stolen from U.S. taxpayers.

    Tell ya what, Chief Ferhat: pay the common U.S. taxpayers back from SDF’s phenomenal extortion-based GDP. I’ll give you a massive disount: let’s just say an even billion USD. No, you can’t use IMF loans or stolen Syrian oil, and you can’t sell Syria back it’s own electricity. Earn the money yourselves, you f*king parasites. Grow some vegtables or whatever other productive activity the Syrian Kurds are known for and then extort your own people for the cash. That’s what you do now, right? They’re all eager and willing to support the PYD’s repressive control of Kurdish nirvana in northeast Syria, so this shouldn’t be a problem.

    When you have paid me back, you can try to duke it out with the SAA to see what you actually control. All without the help of CENTCOM, because I have to pay those treasonous f*kers’ salary, too.

    • klove and light

      very very true…..but still, please dont Forget 2 Things

      1. as Long as the SDF has the us airforce protecting them……no attack by SAA is possible

      2. Money???? world wide monetary System is controlled by jews……they can print / manipulate the currency as they have done since the fed was created………and the amrican public??? sorry, but the thruth is that the american average Joe and marry are under educated sitcom watching drug/booze addicts .

      • Rhodium 10

        3. Turkey and backed Turkish terrorist will never attacks Kurds along East Eufrates like they are doing in Idlib in spite of the strong economic ties between Russia and Turkey…thats because Turkey is a member of NATO and NATO forces are occupying Northeast Syria!

    • John

      Hey Pave. As you have pointed out, everything they have is built on a very flimsy house of cards. It will fall in due time.

  • El Mashi

    One Israel is enough.

    • Jens Holm

      Those are not comparable at all Propagandalf

  • frankly

    Is it the SDF or the USDF? US dumb fucks. How can you call yourself strong, when without the world’s #1 bully you are impotent.

  • Rodney Loder

    Assad has to support Erdogen or YPG there is no middle ground.

    • Jens Holm

      Yes there are many. Fx Assad could resign.

      • Rodney Loder

        He can’t move back to London so I guess Syria is stuck with him, best Fx would be for Boris to spend some time with HTS get to know his white helmets better.

      • Hos Ng

        the world could also gang nuke tel aviv, delivering a big batch of justice and anti terrorism

        • Jens Holm

          As You wish. Why not. But I dont think that will solve much.

  • RichardD

    The Iraqis need to stop allowing their land and airspace to be used by the US coalition of terror for attacks on Syria and illegal foreign military occupation and partition. Once that’s accomplished. The Zionist Kurds will quickly capitulate.

    • Jens Holm

      The Coalision fight ISIS and neutralize the Iranien influence. Bagdad so far has good reasons to keep it like that.

      • RichardD

        ISIS is a Hegelian terrorist sock puppet of the Jew world order’s own creation. The Iraqis are well aware of this. They need to change their policy and stop being Zionist boot lickers.

  • RichardD

    The Turkish observation post in SW Idlib is close to being surrounded, or is surrounded by Syrian government coalition forces moving the front lines forward as they are clearing the area of terrorists.

    Once that’s completed. There’s really no need for it anymore. And it can be destaffed and decommissioned.

  • AM Hants

    Haven’t the US set up another military base, on the borders of Iraq and Syria. Must admit, i thought Trump said he was leaving Syria, remember he was never invited to come and invade. Yet, what he means by leaving, is setting up base.

    Meanwhile, friends of the CIA, over in Venezuela, are getting a good cut, just being in Opposition, with the US picking up the bills. Funny, how the CIA always flocks to the dodgy rogues, who no doubt went to the Clinton Foundation, for training. The article below, is well worth reading.

  • dutchnational

    Internal autonomy does not mean a split in a country. There are many countries in a federation. Some are quite small and economically and democratically hugely succesful. Like Switzerland, Like Belgium. Most of thel bigger countries are federations too and those that are not are all undemocratic

    • igybundy
