Turkey’s Syrian Proxies Are Ready To Take Part In Upcoming Attack On Kurdish Forces – Report

Turkish-backed Syrian militants are ready to take part in a new Turkish attack on Kurdish forces, Reuters reported on November 4.

A previous report by the news agency revealed that the Turkish military and intelligence are preparing for an attack on the People’s Protection Units (YPG), the core of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

A source in Turkish-backed factions in Syria told Reuters that they had received military supplies from Turkey and redeployed their militants to areas that are expected to be targeted in any new attack.

“Moving to a state of complete readiness now needs only a short period before any military operation is declared,” said Major Youssef Hamoud, a spokesperson for Turkey-backed Syrian National Army.

The attack will reportedly target several areas held by the YPG and the SDF in northern and northeastern Syria. The two most likely targets are the northern town of Tell Rifaat and the northeastern town of Kobane.

An unnamed senior Turkish security official told Reuters that the new attack will begin when all preparations are completed.

“We are in coordination with Russia on the matter. The issue was addressed with the United States already,” the senior Turkish security official said.

Despite these claims, both Russia and the US do not appear to be onboard with Turkey’s military plans. In the last few weeks, Russian and Syrian government forces deployed large reinforcements and held joint drills in northern and northeastern Syria.

On November 6, Turkish Presidential spokesman İbrahim Kalın said that the attack on the YPG in Syria may begin at any given moment, confirming that Ankara is determined to go on with its military plans.

Any Turkish military move in Syria will likely be confronted by Russia. Some observers even speculate that such a move could provoke sanctions by the US.
