Turkish Media Claims Syrian Government Forces Withdraw From Afrin Before Reaching City

Donate

The Turkish government-linked media claims that Syrian government forces have withdrawn from the Afrin area before they have been able to reach the YPG-held city.

Anadolu Agency (source):

“Pro-regime groups, who tried to enter Syria’s Afrin to support YPG/PKK-Daesh against Turkey’s ongoing operation in the region, have withdrawn Tuesday before reaching the city following warning shots, according to reliable sources on the ground.

The pro-regime groups departed in the Nubl-al-Zahraa region, in southern Afrin, at around 5.00 p.m. (1400GMT) with the aim of supporting YPG/PKK-Daesh terror groups against Operation Olive Branch, said the source on condition of anonymity due to speaking to the media.

The militias tried to advance into the city with a convoy of 20 vehicles including armored vehicles with DShK heavy machine guns

The withdrawal of the pro-Bashar al-Assad terror groups came when they were about 10 km (about 6 miles) away from Afrin, in northwestern Syria.”

Earlier on February 20, the National Defense Forces (a Syrian government-linked militia) started entering the YPG-held area of Afrin under an alleged deal with the Kurdish force. Government forces immidiately came under Turkish fire.

          Well said.

          Kurds are only supporters of Israel. If there will be a Kurdistan, Israel will build bases to surround Syria from here. And afterwards build bases near Iran in the territory of this Kurdistan.

          Kurdistan is NOT in the interest of SAA, Russia, Iran.

          A strong and united Turkey is (for business)
          A strong and united Syria is as well (for national security)

          SAA should let Turks do the dirty work. They will withdraw eventually as they can’t ignore international law (which USA can) and then SAA will move in and clear Afrin from the FSA fighters that Turkey has left there. Win-Win for everyone, except for USA and Israel.

        The article is from a Turkish mouth piece.

    • You can call me Al

      You so and so, you beat me to it.

      I do change my view and feelings of optimism, on a daily basis recently, but I have to say that this is the conclusion I am coming to as well…..notice no air support and other give away’s towards a conflict ?.

      I am not even sure if it is to eliminate the Kurds, for me it is to push them out. It would not surprise me, if the Syrians and Turks are in direct, 24/7 communications (or regards Syria via the Russians).

      • Mortal

        This is getting complicated, fast. They said they would attack Syrians if they came to help Kurds (which they directly state they want to do in this statement we read here). Just some warning shots. Maybe Assad wants to create a buffer zone, since SDF won’t cooperate probably. Could be a two pronged attack? Or on the pessimistic side, a Turkey with a hidden agenda?

        • You can call me Al

          Agreed, but maybe it is Turkey with an agreed agenda with the Syrians that needs to play out !!!!????.

  • Jozsef Osztronkovics

    President Assad and Syrian forces would be too stupid to help those zionist Israel and US terrorist against Turkey llet Turkey to fix up those Zionist Luciferian scum’s

  • Eskandar Black

    The SAA missed a golden opportunity with the Idlib pocket. They should have taken the ISIS, and unleashed them on turkey south border

    • Mortal

      You are right and wrong at the same time. Yes, it was a nice chance to strike Idlib and purge the jihadists amassed there. Now they can escape or be resupplied or put to work on other fronts. Jihadist leaders bought themselves a little more time, but generally, they are stuck where they are. Hence, they will sooner or later becomes another “pocket” that is going to be closed in the future. I think the conclusion for “moderate opposition” is loss, politically and militarily. On the other hand, the Afrin situation and Turkey’s involvement, demanded action and readiness, so whatever operation was to happen suddenly had to go on hold. But the pressing issue for Syria anyway right now is what happens to the very important region east of Euphrates. If USA+proxies consolidate further by building administration, fortifications and security forces, uprooting them will get harder day by day. I think the fact that Syria and Turkey face a common threat in the face of Kurds (of different magnitude and importance) prevails in their strategy. Everybody knows that once flagless boots on the ground are gone, US won’t be able to play the imperial game.

        Some Kurdish tribes, mainly as part of the Ottoman army, along with the Turks and other people, participated in massacres of Armenians. Other kurds opposed the genocide.

  • klove and light

    folks, people, brothers and sisters…….
    heres the true SECRET deal of the 21st century……….Israel has sold out the usa, by giving the russians a weapon which can neutralize 90% of american arms…..the usa with europe will go to war(nuclear) with russia…..russia will win(this does not mean that russia will not be hit by multiple nuclear missles but not nearly as hard as the us will be hit)…..because russia will accept the new world order under zionist leadership.Never ever would the american people, military or political establishment(although being bought of by zionists for 50+years) accept world leadership of israel.NEVER.the russians r pragmatic…yes they will.
    It is russia that is now playing a double cross on syria and iran and turkey.Israel is playing a double cross on usa and europe.
    wake up wake up wake up.

    the secret deal of the 20th century…..zionists double crossed the germans and we all know how that ended.It was the germans which helped the zionists overthrow the russian czar…it was the zionists which wanted all jews out of europe in the 30´s to go to israel..only problem was..the jews were happy in europe and nobody wanted to leave europe for a peace of desert…so their life had to be made misrabel..that was the deal.

No ronald the key for a world government under zionist control with the capital jerusalem is the destruction of the united states of america.

        • Ronald

          Americans already support Israeli Zionists , AIPAC .

          Zionists are not going to abandon America, everything they did in centuries culminated with the USA (United Provinces of Netherlands->United Kingdom of Great Britain->United States of A). Israel could never rule the world, America can (and does). USA is their masterpiece; Israel is just a pet project. Jerusalem is just a show-off (because “yes we can!”). I don’t believe they really give a fck about Jerusalem, Talmud, whatever, it’s all about money, power, world domination… that’s why they made this symbiotic relationship with anglo-american elites, no difference between them at all.

        • jerry hamilton

          Trump did not make Jerusalem the capitol of the illegal land called occupied Palestine.
          The fact that he said it does not make it so.
          Just means he is as corrupt and stupid as Balfour.

      • klove and light

        why do u think they let trump become president?(u seriously think that trump won by accident?)did bush make jerusalem capital?did obama make jerusalem capital?did reagan?did old bush sr.?did clinton??this is the end game.

            The Dönmeh: The Middle East’s Most Whispered Secret (Part I)

            There is a historical “eight hundred pound gorilla” lurking in the background of almost every serious military and diplomatic incident involving Israel, Turkey, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Greece, Armenia, the Kurds, the Assyrians, and some other players in the Middle East and southeastern Europe. It is a factor that is generally only whispered about at diplomatic receptions, news conferences, and think tank sessions due to the explosiveness and controversial nature of the subject. And it is the secretiveness attached to the subject that has been the reason for so much misunderstanding about the current breakdown in relations between Israel and Turkey, a growing warming of relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia, and increasing enmity between Saudi Arabia and Iran…

            Although known to historians and religious experts, the centuries-old political and economic influence of a group known in Turkish as the “Dönmeh” is only beginning to cross the lips of Turks, Arabs, and Israelis who have been reluctant to discuss the presence in Turkey and elsewhere of a sect of Turks descended from a group of Sephardic Jews who were expelled from Spain during the Spanish Inquisition in the 16th and 17th centuries. These Jewish refugees from Spain were welcomed to settle in the Ottoman Empire and over the years they converted to a mystical sect of Islam that eventually mixed Jewish Kabbala and Islamic Sufi semi-mystical beliefs into a sect that eventually championed secularism in post-Ottoman Turkey. It is interesting that “Dönmeh” not only refers to the Jewish “untrustworthy converts” to Islam in Turkey but it is also a derogatory Turkish word for a transvestite, or someone who is claiming to be someone they are not.

            The Donmeh sect of Judaism was founded in the 17th century by Rabbi Sabbatai Zevi, a Kabbalist who believed he was the Messiah but was forced to convert to Islam by Sultan Mehmet IV, the Ottoman ruler. Many of the rabbi’s followers, known as Sabbateans, but also “crypto-Jews,” publicly proclaimed their Islamic faith but secretly practiced their hybrid form of Judaism, which was unrecognized by mainstream Jewish rabbinical authorities. Because it was against their beliefs to marry outside their sect, the Dönmeh created a rather secretive sub-societal clan.

            The Dönmeh rise to power in Turkey

            Many Dönmeh, along with traditional Jews, became powerful political and business leaders in Salonica. It was this core group of Dönmeh, which organized the secret Young Turks, also known as the Committee of Union and Progress, the secularists who deposed Ottoman Sultan Abdulhamid II in the 1908 revolution, proclaimed the post-Ottoman Republic of Turkey after World War I, and who instituted a campaign that stripped Turkey of much of its Islamic identity after the fall of the Ottomans. Abdulhamid II was vilified by the Young Turks as a tyrant, but his only real crime appears to have been to refuse to meet Zionist leader Theodore Herzl during a visit to Constantinople in 1901 and reject Zionist and Dönmeh offers of money in return for the Zionists to be granted control of Jerusalem.

            Like other leaders who have crossed the Zionists, Sultan Adulhamid II appears to have sealed his fate with the Dönmeh with this statement to his Ottoman court: “Advise Dr. Herzl not to take any further steps in his project. I cannot give away even a handful of the soil of this land for it is not my own, it belongs to the entire Islamic nation. The Islamic nation fought jihad for the sake of this land and had watered it with their blood. The Jews may keep their money and millions. If the Islamic Khalifate state is one day destroyed then they will be able to take Palestine without a price! But while I am alive, I would rather push a sword into my body than see the land of Palestine cut and given away from the Islamic state.” After his ouster by Ataturk’s Young Turk Dönmeh in 1908, Abdulhamid II was jailed in the Donmeh citadel of Salonica. He died in Constantinople in 1918, three years after Ibn Saud agreed to a Jewish homeland in Palestine and one year after Lord Balfour deeded Palestine away to the Zionists in his letter to Baron Rothschild.

            One of the Young Turk leaders in Salonica was Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of the Republic of Turkey. When Greece achieved sovereignty over Salonica in 1913, many Dönmeh, unsuccessful at being re-classified Jewish, moved to Constantinople, later re-named Istanbul. Others moved to Izmir, Bursa, and Ataturk’s newly-proclaimed capital and future seat of Ergenekon power, Ankara.

            Some texts suggest that the Dönmeh numbered no more than 150,000 and were mainly found in the army, government, and business. However, other experts suggest that the Dönmeh may have represented 1.5 million Turks and were even more powerful than believed by many and extended to every facet of Turkish life. One influential Donmeh, Tevfik Rustu Arak, was a close friend and adviser to Ataturk and served as Turkey’s Foreign Minister from 1925 to 1938.

            Ataturk, who was reportedly himself a Dönmeh, ordered that Turks abandon their own Muslim-Arabic names. The name of the first Christian emperor of Rome, Constantine, was erased from the largest Turkish city, Constantinople. The city became Istanbul, after the Ataturk government in 1923 objected to the traditional name. There have been many questions about Ataturk’s own name, since “Mustapha Kemal Ataturk” was a pseudonym. Some historians have suggested that Ataturk adopted his name because he was a descendant of none other than Rabbi Zevi, the self-proclaimed Messiah of the Dönmeh! Ataturk also abolished Turkey’s use of the Arabic script and forced the country to adopt the western alphabet.

            Modern Turkey: a secret Zionist state controlled by the Dönmeh

            Ataturk’s suspected strong Jewish roots, information about which was suppressed for decades by a Turkish government that forbade anything critical of the founder of modern Turkey, began bubbling to the surface, first, mostly outside of Turkey and in publications written by Jewish authors. The 1973 book, The Secret Jews, by Rabbi Joachim Prinz, maintains that Ataturk and his finance minister, Djavid Bey, were both committed Dönmeh and that they were in good company because “too many of the Young Turks in the newly formed revolutionary Cabinet prayed to Allah, but had their real prophet [Sabbatai Zevi, the Messiah of Smyrna].” In The Forward of January 28, 1994, Hillel Halkin wrote in The New York Sun that Ataturk recited the Jewish Shema Yisrael (“Hear O Israel”), saying that it was “my prayer too.” The information is recounted from an autobiography by journalist Itamar Ben-Avi, who claims Ataturk, then a young Turkish army captain, revealed he was Jewish in a Jerusalem hotel bar one rainy night during the winter of 1911. In addition, Ataturk attended the Semsi Effendi grade school in Salonica, run by a Dönmeh named Simon Zevi. Halkin wrote in the New York Sun article about an email he received from a Turkish colleague: “I now know – know (and I haven’t a shred of doubt) – that Ataturk’s father’s family was indeed of Jewish stock.”

            It was Ataturk’s and the Young Turks’ support for Zionism, the creation of a Jewish homeland in Palestine, after World War I and during Nazi rule in Europe that endeared Turkey to Israel and vice versa. An article in The Forward of May 8, 2007, revealed that Dönmeh dominated Turkish leadership “from the president down, as well as key diplomats . . . and a great part of Turkey’s military, cultural, academic, economic, and professional elites” kept Turkey out of a World War II alliance with Germany, and deprived Hitler of a Turkish route to the Baku oilfields.” In his book, The Donme: Jewish Converts, Muslim Revolutionaries and Secular Turks, Professor Marc David Baer wrote that many advanced to exalted positions in the Sufi religious orders.

            Israel has always been reluctant to describe the Turkish massacre of the Armenians by the Turks in 1915 as “genocide.” It has always been believed that the reason for Israel’s reticence was not to upset Israel’s close military and diplomatic ties with Turkey. However, more evidence is being uncovered that the Armenian genocide was largely the work of the Dönmeh leadership of the Young Turks. Historians like Ahmed Refik, who served as an intelligence officer in the Ottoman army, averred that it was the aim of the Young Turks to destroy the Armenians, who were mostly Christian. The Young Turks, under Ataturk’s direction, also expelled Greek Christians from Turkish cities and attempted to commit a smaller-scale genocide of the Assyrians, who were also mainly Christian.

            One Young Turk from Salonica, Mehmet Talat, was the official who carried out the genocide of the Armenians and Assyrians. A Venezuelan mercenary who served in the Ottoman army, Rafael de Nogales Mendez, noted in his annals of the Armenian genocide that Talat was known as the “renegade Hebrew of Salonica.” Talat was assassinated in Germany in 1921 by an Armenian whose entire family was lost in the genocide ordered by the “renegade Hebrew.” It is believed by some historians of the Armenian genocide that the Armenians, known as good businessmen, were targeted by the business-savvy Dönmeh because they were considered to be commercial competitors.

            It is not, therefore, the desire to protect the Israeli-Turkish alliance that has caused Israel to eschew any interest in pursuing the reasons behind the Armenian genocide, but Israel’s and the Dönmeh’s knowledge that it was the Dönmeh leadership of the Young Turks that not only murdered hundreds of thousands of Armenians and Assyrians but who also stamped out Turkey’s traditional Muslim customs and ways. Knowledge that it was Dönmeh, in a natural alliance with the Zionists of Europe, who were responsible for the deaths of Armenian and Assyrian Christians, expulsion from Turkey of Greek Orthodox Christians, and the cultural and religious eradication of Turkish Islamic traditions, would issue forth in the region a new reality. Rather than Greek and Turkish Cypriots living on a divided island, Armenians holding a vendetta against the Turks, and Greeks and Turks feuding over territory, all the peoples attacked by the Dönmeh would realize that they had a common foe that was their actual persecutor.

            Challenging Dönmeh rule: Turkey’s battle against the Ergenekon

            It is the purging of the Kemalist adherents of Ataturk and his secular Dönmeh regime that is behind the investigation of the Ergenekon conspiracy in Turkey. Ergenekon’s description matches up completely with the Dönmeh presence in Turkey’s diplomatic, military, judicial, religious, political, academic, business, and journalist hierarchy. Ergenekon attempted to stop the reforms instituted by successive non-Dönmeh Turkish leaders, including the re-introduction of traditional Turkish Islamic customs and rituals, by planning a series of coups, some successful like that which deposed Prime Minister Necmettin Erbakan’s Refah (Welfare) Islamist government in 1996 and some unsuccessful, like OPERATION SLEDGEHEMMER, which was aimed at deposing Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan in 2003. Some Islamist-leaning reformists, including Turkish President Turgut Ozal and Prime Minister Bulent Ecevit, died under suspicious circumstances. Deposed democratically-elected Prime Minister Adnan Menderes was hanged in 1961, following a military coup.

            American politicians and journalists, whose knowledge of the history of countries like Turkey and the preceding Ottoman Empire, is often severely lacking, have painted the friction between Israel’s government and the Turkish government of Prime Minister Erdogan as based on Turkey’s drift to Islamism and the Arab world. Far from it, Erdogan and his Justice and Development Party (AKP) seem to have finally seen a way to break free from the domination and cruelty of the Dönmeh, whether in the form of Kemalist followers of Ataturk or nationalist schemers and plotters in Ergenekon. But with Turkey’s “Independence Day” has come vitriol from the Dönmeh and their natural allies in Israel and the Israel Lobby in the United States and Europe. Turkey as a member of the European Union was fine for Europe as long as the Dönmeh remained in charge and permitted Turkey’s wealth to be looted by central bankers like has occurred in Greece.

            When Israel launched its bloody attack on the Turkish Gaza aid vessel, the Mavi Marmara, on May 31, 2010, the reason was not so much the ship’s running of the Israeli blockade of Gaza. The brutality of the Israelis in shooting unarmed Turks and one Turkish-American, some at point blank range, according to a UN report, indicated that Israel was motivated by something else: vengeance and retaliation for the Turkish government’s crackdown on Ergenekon, the purging of the Turkish military and intelligence senior ranks of Dönmeh, and reversing the anti-Muslim religious and cultural policies set down by the Dönmeh’s favorite son, Ataturk, some ninety years before. In effect, the Israeli attack on the Mavi Marmara was in retaliation for Turkey’s jailing of several top Turkish military officers, journalists, and academics, all accused of being part of the Ergenekon plot to overthrow the AKP government in 2003. Hidden in the Ergenekon coup plot is that the Dönmeh and Ergenekon are connected through their history of being Kemalists, ardent secularists, pro-Israeli, and pro-Zionist.

            With tempers now flaring between Iran on one side and Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the United States on the other, as the result of a dubious claim by U.S. law enforcement that Iran was planning to carry out the assassination of the Saudi ambassador to the United States on American soil, the long-standing close, but secretive relationship between Israel and Saudi Arabia is coming to the forefront. The Israeli-Saudi connection had flourished during OPERATION DESERT STORM, when both countries were on the receiving end of Saddam Hussein’s Scud missiles.

    turks will never give up and YPG doesn’t want to surrender to the syria gov. Both are a real problem.

    SAA must attack Afrin region to recover some lands. Otherwise, everything will be taken by Turkey.

    After that, Turkey must attack SDF in east Syria. Shortly after, SAA attacks SDF again. So that, it remains only one ennemy to deal with : FSA.

      SAA should secure at least Sounthern AFRIN, to prevent any smuggling from Turkey

      All Assad has to do is sit back and let the kurds get slaughtered. Turkey will have to hand over the occupied territories sooner or later because neither Russia nor Iran will allow an annexation. Dead kurds without having to spend SAA soldiers? Sounds like a good deal to me.

    After seeing the SAA and allies how treacherous and evil the Kurds can be by allying themselves with enemy powers to steal valuable resources from Syria,
    to this day I keep asking myself, why should the SAA worry about negotiating about Afrin’s fate and avoiding such ones for which, speaking of treacherous Turks and Kurds, kill each other?

    …well “Pro-regime groups” and regular SAA troops makes for a big difference. The SAA requested multiple times the YPG should hand over their weapons and let the SAA move into their positions. It should be obvious that Turkey could live with this,…because the goal of disarming the kurds would be achieved. Any other formation openly wanting to support the YPG runs into a fire fight with the Turks and the FSA. Nobody likes militarized kurds in northern Syria,…militarized by the US that is. Unfortunately the Kurds have a “weird” track record in regards to fighting against/with ISIS or allowing free passage.

    The degree of clinical insanity in Turkey is mind-blowing. The official Anadolu Agency actually manages to mix the Kurds with Daesh. The latter long-time most effective opposition against Daesh whereas Turkey has been known to support Daesh in many ways. The Kurds were indeed used by Turks against Armenians etc. but have long shown that they won’t commit the same mistake again. At the same time, Erdogan’s Turkey has excelled at confiscation of the last church-lands and enforced conservative sunni islamisation.

    One time more, after seeing the SAA and allies how treacherous and evils Kurds can be, by allying themselves with enemy powers to steal valuable resources from Syria,
    To this day, I keep asking myself, why should the SAA worry about the fate of the Kurds in afrin and to try to prevent such one for which, speaking of treacherous Turks and Kurds, to kill ones each others?
    Because months ago, the Russians asked the Kurds to hand over control of Afrin and other areas nearby, to the Syrian authorities to avoid precisely the situation reigning right now,
    but with great pride and little respect, the Kurds arrogantly rejected the Russian offer, feeling themselves the owners of the universe with the support of their new American owners.
    But now here, they are sobbing like scared little girls asking for help from the SAA, right now,
    when they felt themselves totally abandoned by their super-powerful American owner in front of turkish army guys and puppets are raping and killing female Kurdish soldiers.

    If Turkish troops fired on them then they’ve gotten what they needed anyway.
