The United States-led Coalition intensified its operations in northern and eastern Syria in December, defying Turkey’s recent threats to Kurdish forces in the region.
Turkey lunched an air operation against the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), the coalition’s main proxy in northern and eastern Syria, and threatened the Kurdish group with a new ground invasion following the November 13 Istanbul bombing. Nevertheless, Washington stood along its proxy, pressuring its NATO ally, Ankara, into de-facto halting its operations in the two regions.
Instead of withdrawing from northern and eastern Syria, as Turkey hoped for, the U.S.-led coalition stepped up its operations there under the pretext of fighting ISIS.
On December 11, the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) announced that two senior officials of ISIS were killed during a successful helicopter raid in eastern Syria. The command said that one of the two officials, identified as Anas, held a senior position in ISIS Syria Province and was involved in the terrorist group’s “deadly plotting and facilitation operations” in the region.
The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that the raid took place in the town of al-Zir in the southeastern countryside of Deir Ezzor and revealed that the SDF was involved.
Later on December 13, the U.S.-led coalition deployed additional heavy weapons, including M777 towed 155 mm howitzers and M2A3 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles, in its bases in northern Syria, which are mainly located at key gas and oil fields.
On December 14, the coalition went on to conduct its first patrol within Raqqa city more than three years after abandoning its bases in the governorate. Later on December 16, it was reported that the coalition is preparing to occupy the 17th Division base in the northern outskirt in the city. The next day, December 17, a patrol of the coalition was seen entering the abandoned Syrian military base.
On December 20, a U.S. drone strike hit a house in the Turkish-occupied town of al-Bab in the northern Aleppo countryside. A Yemeni national was severely wounded in the strike. Local sources said that the man, known as Abu Yasir, was an ISIS commander.
On the same day, the CENTCOM announced that its forces had conducted three helicopter raids in eastern Syria resulting in the detention of six ISIS operatives, including al-Zubaydi, a Syria Province senior official involved in the “planning and facilitation of ISIS attacks in the country.”
The U.S. appears to be trying to deter Turkey, while in the process using ISIS as a pretext to step up its operations and expand its presence in northern and eastern Syria. This will likely push the Turkish government towards more cooperation with Russia, and possibly the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad.
Oil stealing yanks
Enjoy your censorship here SF. Let’s see whether cheerleading will make you win the wars. But don’t claim to not be a moronic Russian propaganda website. You are losing readers due to your zero tolerance for opposing views even though opposition is little here. Why not just auto-block our usernames so we don’t post at all instead of deleting our comments long after people already replied to them. You are not even hiding this shameful act from your blind supporters. I won’t waste my time commenting here again, except copy-paste this rebuke every now and then.
There was a whole thing between Russia and Turkey – then the CIA came in and said we need these Kurdish terrorists, we have plans for them and told Turkey to piss off.
We all know why the US is in the Middle East and why they must save/protect these terrorists.
Iran – These Kurdish terrorists attacked Iran (Javanrud), backed their terrorist groups that are in Iran to kill and attack civilians and Iran military force.
Turkey – most of you know what happened.
Syria and Iraq – nothing new they are doing the same thing as Zionists.
TLDR, Greater Kurdistan and Greater Zionist-stan.
The US doesn’t care if they are supporting terrorists or fuking donkey. The US occupy Afghanistan for 20 years – but why? It was a strategic importance location. Centre Asia to the North (Russia), to the east (China), to the south (Pakistan) and to West (Iran). All of those countries are the US top enemies.
Now look at the map again – The US can’t stop supporting these Kurdish terrorists. No-body else would host the US. The US isn’t free in Iraq – they never were welcomed there to begin with. Turkey never trust the US and nor will the US trust Turkey “they are NATO ally” yeah kiss my ass – Turkey had to launch their attack against Kurdish terrorist groups one day sooner because the US told Kurdish terrorists when Turkey was going to attack. Syria – do I have to say anything? “Assad most go”.
The US wouldn’t leave N-Syria – they can’t give up that strategic importance location. Also, yes these Kurdish terrorists fuking know that… you can’t blame them to you know don’t follow all the US orders.
It is mostly PKK/PJAK/YPG not Barzani or Talabani.
When you da muzlim guppu bottom, then it don’t matter do it? You understand? Muzlin guppu da bottom in da relationship.
What relations do I have with them? None
You closet muzlim. Admit it now and I will get out of your hair. Just be honest……
I am not Muslim
yes you are. Don’t be ashamed now. It’s ok……you middle eastern no? Come on now muzlim guy.
The Kurds are not terrorists. The USA, Turkey, and Israel are terrorists
So you are saying they are terrorists.
🤡💨 try again maggot
SHITtila FARTING from ITS beasty mouth … when all MERDolfgan OGRES will be slain it will be a better world!
Ottoman empire dreams will never be reached with the Lira in the toilet. War is great for economies. Turkey will continue. As will NATO and Russia. Kurdistan is a pun intended. Pipe dream… Greece is mobilizing and Turkey in NATO looks like a pre-1980s cold war banana slip. Nukes in Turkey before Cuba… No one wants a lesson from history or seems to see the histrionics.
Economy is not that easy to understand and saying one country’s currency is not doing well doesn’t mean it is the end for them. We might see another recession sooner or later.
In this era you can’t start a “empire” anymore – powerful countries could occupy weaker countries but that is about it. And that doesn’t comes for free, look at the US – the world doesn’t see the US as a trustworthy “ally/friend” but a occupier. That steal, kill and support terrorists to reach their goals.
Turkey and Israel are seen like the US in the Middle East.
Like how Zionists attack Syria “for their safely against Iran” – Turkey doing the same thing in Syria but against Kurdish gangs. The Western countries can’t and don’t blame Turkey for attacking Kurdish gangs in Syria – if they do people say why don’t you stop your support for Zionists in Palestine. Turkey under Erdogay doing what the Zionists has been doing… support both side and steal.
We are in a global depression. The global economy collapsed in Feb 2020. “empire dreams” of Erdoğan. You still need to pay your people. Zaire is a good example. Yes Japan has a large movement against United States military bases. Yes Erdoğan is a bad dude.
He is not. The US are trying to put a radical Kemalist or Gulenist.
He being Erdoğan, is not what? A a bad dude? The entire ” Syrian Northern Buffer Zone.” Is filled with villages and civilians. Of many ethnic backgrounds and religions. Did you see the occupation/capture? They blew the shit out of everything. Kurdish or not. In fact. The Kurd’s main bases are still uncaptured. Let’s just install a genocidal dictator… Mission Accomplished. I’m against the YPG too… Their silly red star. War is bad! Except in the minds of some, including SuthFrunt… Can’t run a war website without conflict and death!
I agree but PKK is a terrorist group which has oppressed Assyrians.
The whole country is a mess. Being attacked from many sides. There are terrorists and murderers galore. One of the countries mentioned by Gen. Wesley Clark. Hmm… If Libya had Russian naval/military bases. Things likely would have been quite different there.
be a turk get killed by American back rebels lol
dullard moron Sawyer—obese fake beef tiresome
If ever there was a Country that needed Nuking, the the USA is it.
If Syria gives Turkey the northern part of Syria turkey will 100% become allies
guppu da bottom in the US/ Turkey relationship. Gyukk Gyukk, gook gook….gyull gyull…..cocook cocukk….chuqq chuqq……lol
Mollahs lover 🖕
No, I’m not a Mollah’s lover, but an Iran lover.
WHY? OGRES ARE ALREADY IN A LAND NOT OF ITS OWN, AND OCCUPIED ALSO SYRIA; CYPRUS; THRACE;ANATOLIA, CAUCASUS, LYBIA, KURDISTAN …. TIME TO WEEP ITS AWAY
Correct,even help syria retake golan heights,no more sodomised cia/lgbtq/woke/libba spastic problem! =Z=
Turkey is refugee camp of the World. 7 million Syrians + 4 million (africans,tunusian,iranian,mirrocco) 11 million refugees.. Turkey’s economy collapsed %300 inflation.. Turkey can not be power anymore .. it is 3.world country.
Those you call Iranian in Turkey are Sorani Kurds who are waiting to go to the EU or US/ Canada.
This can not be true, the USA doesn’t “defy” others, it’s always the other way around, otherwise you presume that the other party could be right, which is an abomination!
Syria, Iraq, Turkey and Russia should all team up and Kick the Americans out and kick the shit out of the Kurds. Sure the Americans have weapons but their military is woke. I doubt they have the stomach for real face to face war. How could they when they are to busy worrying about their feelings and sex. I bet they are or are going soft.
Schmeist Ihr erstmal die Amerikaner aus der Türkei raus. In der Türkei sind mehrere USA-Militär stationiert. Nicht nur in Incirlik. Und Zweitens: Warum seit Ihr immer noch in der Nato? Wollt Ihr die Kurden veräppeln? Wenn Ihr an der Seite der USA sein könnt, dann können das die Kurden auch. Verstehe Eure faschistische Einstellung nicht. Sag doch, dass Ihr Kurden abschlachten wollt. Das ist doch euer Ziel. Ihr beweisst es doch jeden Tag. Wieder in Frankreich habt Ihr es bewiesen. Selam
They have to be forced out. Also the tankers that steal the oil need to be destroyed. Why isn’t this done?
Americans are illegally in Syria, and taking their oil….where are the poor American “supporters of human rights, democracy, freedom, etc”???
when amerikan lips move they lie
amerikan have no friends except terrorists—the irrelevant uncivilized angloshere is dying…now 11 nations wish to join BRICS…bye bye #1 shithole USA
And yet Kurds are not harassed in Syris.
Turkish forces are doing their best! (That’s sarcasm. I’d love a complete ceasefire)
