Turkish-Backed Militants Will Hand Over Northern Raqqa Villages To Russian Forces - Report

FILE IMAGE: Russian Military Police service members are in Syria

Ankara has ordered the so-called Syrian National Army (SNA) to hand over a number of villages near the town of Tell Abyad in northern Raqqa to the Russian Military Police, Sputnik reported on October 50, citing sources in the Turkish-backed group.

“The Turkish military ordered, today Wednesday, Free Syrian Army (FSA) factions to withdraw from 11 villages, located on the M4 highway in the district of Ain Issa in the area of Tell Abyad, and to hand it over to the Russian Military Police,” the source told the Russian news agency.

According to the source, Ankara told the Syrian militants that these villages are not a part of the “safe-zone” agreed upon by Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan, last week.

The Russian-Turkish agreement allows Ankara to establish a safe-zone between the border towns of Tell Abyad and Ras al-Ayn north of the M4 highway.

The M4 is considered the spine of transportation in northeastern Syria. The highway links al-Hasakah with Raqqa and Aleppo.

It’s still unclear if SNA militants have handed over the villages to Russian forces. In the last 48 hours, the militants captured 18 Syrian service members and launched a large attack south of Ras al-Ayn, violating the agreement with Russia.

those bitches were trained and supported all by the US. Most of those dogs are AQ or ISIS today. So, thank you US for “fighting” the terrorism you created and still sponsor.


Hey klove and zionist what crap do you have you to say in this article.


Hey, headchoppers, you aren’t safe anywhere!


The Turkish occupation zone is a problem. Because it includes areas that the Turks don’t currently occupy in the middle section. And the Syrians understandably aren’t going to want to cede control of it. Especially since the SDF has withdrawn from it. If they indeed have.

It would be better if the Turks could show some flexibility on the MOU agreement’s implementation. And agree to modify it to freeze the zone’s borders at the current contact lines.

Perhaps rather than joint Turkish/Russian patrols, Turkish/Syrian patrols could be substituted within the Adana protocols to verify that the SDF has indeed withdrawn from the middle section. And it could be ceded to the Syrian government as a confidence building measure and sign of good will and faith.

I think Smeagol has a couple million ‘Syrian refugees’ he’s planning on sending there. It would be problematic if Syrian troops controlled that territory and insisted on screening the returning ‘Syrian refugees’ and tried to settle their status. Especially settling the status of those Uyghur-only speaking Syrian refugees.

I know this is serious business, but that Russian SUV looks like a tank (big). LOL

Tudor Miron

Thing is that it is not a SUV (sport utility vehicle).

viktor ziv

Is it Tigr?

Fred Dozer

Yep! you got it right. It is a competitor of the US Humvees.

Fred Dozer

I thought it was a Russian Hummer. They made a SUV, Hummer version, but not for some time now. What is the name of the ?

Fred Dozer

The GAZ Tiger is widely available in Eastern Europe for civilian ownership, both as a surplus vehicle and in unarmored civilian variations from the factory.
I guess the rich will buy anything, just to say they own one.

Tudor Miron

I agree but still it is not a SUV :) (strictly speaking). Here you have its dimensions https://ee.sputniknews.ru/infographics/20170530/5930879/bronirovannyj-avtomobil-tigr-m.html
