Turkey, France And U.S. Are Plotting To Hand Syria's Border To FSA

Fighers of the SEF, Illustrative image

Turkey, France and the U.S. are planning to reconstruct the Syrian Elite Forces (SEF), a Free Syrian Army (FSA) group, and deploy it on the Syrian-Turkish border east of Euphrates River as an alternative for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Mehdi al-Jaila, leader of the SEF told the Hammurabi’s Justice News blog on December 28.

The blog, which is well-known for its close ties to the US-led coalition, has not provided additional information about the Turkish-French-American plan so far. Furthermore, the SDF is yet to comment on al-Jaila’s statement.

The SEF is the military wing of the Syria’s Tomorrow Movement (STM), which is headed by opposition figure Ahmad Jarba. Since its formation in 2016, the armed group has been working with the SDF under the command of the US-led coalition.

Last May, the SDF attacked a unit of the SEF after it refused to hand over its weapons. The conflict was seen as an attempt to neutralize the Arab group.

Jarba has very close ties to Egypt and Saudi Arabia. However, he resumed his relations with Turkey recently and made several trips to the country, where he discussed the future of the Syrian-Turkish border, according to Syrian opposition sources.

It’s not clear yet if the supposed plan will be supported by Egypt, Saudi Arab or even the SDF who are currently closer to the axis of the Damascus government.

            Saggers? Never saw any Sagger in vids from Syria. Konkurs or Kornets yes, but not Saggers or Swatters. They are systems made in the 1960s.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            That was the main Syrian and Egyptian wire guided ATGM along with some French Milans. They still use them but now mostly Kornets, Tows and other Iranian cousins are the primary ATGMs.

            Despite its Cold War roots, the AT-3 Sagger Anti-Tank Guided Missile series still largely https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images makes up inventories of Soviet Union/Russia; Serbia; Slovenia; Syria; Iran, Uganda; Ukraine; Vietnam; Zambia etc. Sagger is used by Hezbollah and still produced in Iran in large numbers and played a very important anti-armor role in repelling Saddam’s invasion.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Turks have the most incompetent military in the region that has been losing to Kurds for over 60 years now.

          The Turkish military operation dubbed ‘Euphrates Shield’ (ES) began with great bombast on August 24, 2016, aiming to clear an area of 5,000 square kilometres
          of Syrian territory, and is conducted jointly with CIA supported terrorist factions
          of the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

          But the operation was blunted with heavy cost, especially since Turkey started an
          offensive on the same city of al-Bab, around 40 kilometres east of
          Aleppo. A sheet listing 70 Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) vehicles which are
          damaged, hit, or of which the status is unknown, near al-Bab started
          making rounds on news websites and social media on December 23, 2016. Many of the most modern Leopard 2A4 tanks were abandoned by their ill trained crews.

            Thanks. Best wishes to you too.

          • Brother Ma

            These were also the tanks that were strengthened by the Israelis at great cost. They were still tin cans. Go Kornet!
            I reckon the secret is have an air shield. Then anyone with Kornet can stop a tank column !

    • Smith Ricky

      It began in 2011…

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Not going to happen. Turkeys have an incompetent military as was shown at Abu-Kamal and Al-Bab a few years when they lost the entire tank battalion to Kurds who were mostly armed with RPG’s and a few Saggers. Now they will be facing a battle hardened SAA and most likely Hezbollah who are armed with the most deadly modern ATGM and the hilly terrain favors them.
      The 2016 al-Bab offensive, also known as laughably Operation Day of Wrath (like Zionist operation in Lebanon), was launched on the Syrian–Turkish border against YPG units supported by SAA and ended as a ”crippling defeat” and a ”Bay-of-Pigs-style embarrassment.

      How could Turkey lose so many Leopard 2 tanks near al-Bab?

      So what did go so wrong there? We can see in most of the videos that the tanks are advancing over open terrain on their own, without infantry support, and their opponents are able to shoot at the weak side armor. What that demonstrates is simply that the Turkish army lacks decent training and experience in combined arms warfare and its officer corps has been decimated by Erdogan’s purges and most Turkish conscripts simply don’t have the motivation to fight. The situation in now much worse as the Turks face a resurgent SAA backed up with cutting edge ATGM’s and they know how to use them.

      • BMWA1

        Maybe the fault of the Gay Wolves?

        • Zionism = EVIL

          80% of Turkish military is illiterate Anatolian peasants who are forcibly conscripted in the military and the rich and AKP members are corrupt exemptions. The idiot Erdogan sacked and jailed 1400 senior officers after the fake coup and most of the generals and command staff officers who had trained with NATO were jailed and tortured. So the Turkeys military is now really a Turkey.

        • Lupus

          LOL

      • PZIVJ

        I Recall one instance near Al Bab when FSA trash ran away from an ISIS attack.
        So many Turks did also, leaving many vehicles in perfect running condition. :)

        • Zionism = EVIL

          True. The German Leopard is the most modern tank in Turkeys hands and like Zionist tin can Merkeva was supposedly indestructible :) and the German government was embarrassed at such high losses and incompetence as that is not a good advertisement for German panzers export market to the Arab puppet regimes and Turkeys who have the second highest Leopard inventory after the German army.

    “””Turkey, France and the U.S. are planning to reconstruct the Syrian Elite Forces (SEF), a Free Syrian Army (FSA) group, and deploy it on the Syrian-Turkish border east of Euphrates River as an alternative for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Mehdi al-Jaila, leader of the SEF told the Hammurabi’s Justice News blog on December 28.”””

    That is baloney, SAA, Russia and allies will be quickly on the east side of the Eufrates and secure the border and put an end of all foreign meddling in Syria.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The Turkeys are plotting a Zionist SLA style quasi border state that was created in Lebanon until Hezbollah kicked the Zionist scum in 2000. The delusional plan is to create a 30 kms wide FSA and other terrorist havens to endless terror war in Syria, not going to work as the Zionists found out and SLA collapsed and they refused to take in the traitors. Same is going to happen here, but much sooner. Turkeys economy is in trouble with 22% unemployment.

    • John Brown

      I agree that is baloney, SAA, Russia and allies will be quickly on the east side of the Eufrates and secure the border and put an end of all foreign meddling in Syria.
      If Erdogan is so stupid to trust those who tried to kill him, all his family and friends etc. then he is a moron, will be killed by Israeli Mossad death squads and Turkey will be totally destroyed by the racist supremacist global Jewish confederate slave empire dictatorship so a greater Israel may take its place.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        nope just a whore who dont know better.

  • Barba_Papa

    Still up their old ‘lets train locals into a coherent fighting force’ strategem? Like when has that EVER worked?

    • Bill Wilson

      Worked with the SDF!

      • Barba_Papa

        Those were already a competent fighting force to begin with. They had been fighting various Headchoppers and ISIS for years before the US magically discovered them as their proxy boots on the ground force in Syria.

        So again, when has the US EVER turned a rag tag army or a bunch of nobodies into a competent fighting force?

  • John Whitehot

    seems garbage to me, but lets wait and see

    • PZIVJ

      Indeed, much too late to change the border force, and the clock is ticking.
      I think Erdogan will have to back down from his loud mouth threats against Syrian territory. :)

      • John Whitehot

        it could well end with the SAA in control of all the provinces which worry Erdogan so much and Kurdish militias relocated elsewhere.

        I guess the ball is in Erdogan’s field.

  • Jim Prendergast

    There are large missiles and bombs that can effectively remove the SEF no matter how Elite they are. Reconciliation and a peaceful contribution to Syria have much to be said for them.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    Pure and utter BS, does anyone believe even one word of this madman’s rant, the morons who bothered to cover the story should be fired for stupidity, and wasting resources.

    • Brother Ma

      Why do you say that? I am serious. On what evidence?

      • Willing Conscience (The Truths

        For a start check out the site, Hammurabi’s Justice News blog. Read the blog this story is covering, if you think that’s reliable info I don’t, an anti Assad news blog site relaying information from an Arab traitor who sided with the US against Assad, and now has a story to tell that suite’s his propaganda purposes, mmmm, not really very reliable in my eyes. Just look at some of the other blogs too, and see if you don’t think half of it’s just speculation mixed with some official statements to make them sound plausible, just another very crappy anti Assad propaganda site. I complain about SF using SOHR as an information source, but this blog they used is even worse as a source of info.
        But this takes the cake,

        “Jarba has very close ties to Egypt and Saudi Arabia. However, he resumed his relations with Turkey recently and made several trips to the country, where he discussed the future of the Syrian-Turkish border, according to Syrian opposition sources.
        It’s not clear yet if the supposed plan will be supported by Egypt, Saudi Arab or even the SDF who are currently closer to the axis of the Damascus government”.

        Close ties to the Saudi’s but went to Turkey to discuss the future of the Syrian-Turkish border, according to Syrian opposition sources, that doesn’t alarm you either, he didn’t say he’d discussed it with the US/Syrians/Russians/French, just the Turks, that means he’s been sucking you know who’s you know what, that’s all. He’s a traitor to the Arab people twice over now, once for siding with the US, and now for siding with the Turks. Arabs who side with the US/SDF/Turkey are much more traiterous than any Kurd you know, at least some of us understand the Kurds desire for independence, but what does this traitor get for selling out his own country.
        And why do the Egyptians want to back this lunatic, they’re backing Assad now and want him to remain in power, they won’t have anything to do with this traitor, he’s worked for 2 of Syria’s enemies now. Even the Saudis have been forced to comply at last, no problem with Assad staying in power is the new Saudi mantra.
        As I said, this traitor went to Erdogan and prostituted himself, that’s all, and this is the propaganda spin we get from the opposition who somehow believe some of us will fall for it, I just see it for what it is, CONFUSING SPIN.

        • Brother Ma

          Those traitorous leaders must all be shot or hanged.

  • BL

    As I said before, US is dumping Kurds as puppets and going back to using Turkey. As part of the deal they expect Turkey to cancel the S-400 deal with Russia and go back to doing the bidding of the Anglo-Zionist empire. I knew from day 1 they had invested too much in Turkey to just let it go in exchange for a bunch of Kurdish tribes. The Jews have spent decades radicalizing these people with a completely fake and made up identity in order to turn them into cannon fodder of the Anglo-Zionist empire against their Asian enemies of Iran, Russia, and China.

    Watch for news regarding the S-400. If Turkey cancels this deal you will know for sure that the plan I mentioned above is in full force once again.

    • Tommy Jensen

      I said that before this, as the first one who said it. But ok you can copy what I predicted and what I said. Just remember who said it first!

  • Eskandar Black

    With the US out of Syria, there is not an effective combat force present on the west side of the Euphrates. Between the french, the Turks and the FSA, they would be lucky to hold the territory they hold now, which appears ever more doubtful, as Syria restores its diplomatic ties in the region, mops down what is left of ISIS, and begins to recapture its borders.

    Turkey is the largest and most serious threat to Syrian sovereignty, but Syria could always support the kurds and unleash them on the turks within the ranks of the SAA affiliate forces.
