YPG Fighters Could Join Syrian Army And Jointly Recapture Turkish-occupied Regions: Report

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE

A People’s Protection Units (YPG) spokesman said that the Kurdish fighters are highly likely to join the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) after the two sides reach an agreement to take back the regions they have already lost to the Turkish army, Fars News reported.

Arabic-Language RT cited YPG senior spokesman Nuri Mahmud who said that “there is no obstacle facing cooperation between the Kurdish militants and the Syrian Army.”

He said that the YPG would join the SAA only after political agreements are concluded on how to form a joint army.

Mahmud also said that in the case the YPG joined the SAA, the Turkish occupied regions of Afrin, Jarablus, al-Bab and Idlib would be liberated from the control of Turkey and its allied militants.

He further said that the recapturing of Afrin is of utmost priority for the Kurdish people.

The Fars News report also reminded of remarks made in December by Mahmud claiming that YPG will lay down their arms only after peace returns to Syria.

A report by Jordanian news channel, al-Hadath was cited saying that according to Mahmud – the weapons supplied by the United States were used to combat terrorists.

The YPG also said that it had invited the Syrian ARmy the Manbij area to allegedly focus on the fight against ISIS on the eastern bank of the EuphratesRriver.

Following that, the SAA reportedly fortified its military positions near Manbij for a possible confrontation with Turkish-backed militants.

    3 Dimensional Chess – a Putin speciality.

    • jorge

      May be not only a Putin’s speciality, it’s probable that the Russian general staff and the Russian diplomats also know to play chest, and I doubt that Syrians, by now, will not be great masters too.

  • Mustafa Mehmet

    So terrorist overing there service to saa? what about crime this bastard cause towords Syrian people. no deal with traitors

    • jako

      You are nor Syrian Mustafa.
      Just like tens of thousands foreign terrorist who arrived to Syria through Turkey are not Syrians
      Let the Syrians speak for themselves.
      After all Kurds are part of Syria if they renounce their independence and accept united and indivisible Syria

  • Zionism = EVIL

    The only way to liberate all of Syria is to unite and expel all non-invited terrorist supporters out by causing massive losses. The Turkeys are weaker than a wankers wrist and their peasant conscripts will simply run off if a few hundred are killed as previous disasters at al-Bab and other regions have shown when the Turkeys abandoned their most modern Leopard tanks and took off even when hit by much weaker Kurds, let alone SAA and Hezbollah. It is time to test the Kornets on Turkeys and move the S-300 and Pantsir to Idlib. Under the UN charter and international law, Syria is obligated to defend its lands and expel all invaders.

    • Mustafa Mehmet

      What you waiting for? Declare all out war against Turkey then you find out, you stupid breanless idiot you will lose what you got left

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        turkey has declared war on syria a long time ago, so no need to declare war that is already declared dont you think? As for turkeys abilities they will not last a week against seasoned warriors as SAA and Hez, so be careful what you wishing for.

        It is best turks to pack up and go where they come from and try and save some face. Tell me why all the generals who lead the first invasions in afrin are against another campaign in syria, do you know?

        • jorge

          And also the main oposition turkish party is against.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            I was wondering if the jew knew that.

          • jorge

            He can be Turk, and someone that knows to speak turk can make the experience.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            in the knowledge that kurds are zionist puppets and directed by them, if he is a jew or a want to be jew, what is the difference ?

            Mustafa, better to make a deal with Assad and the Russians, and go home.

        • Brother Ma

          Need to polish up your history even though you are usually right. Greeks been fighting against and winning against Turks for longer than anyone. At least two to three hundred years before tHe Russians and Slavs were Civilised.Read up on Siege of Constantinople in 670 AD by Arabs and Slavs.

  • Promitheas Apollonious

    SAA dont need traitors to join them and is quite able to free their land occupy by who ever is occupy them provided russians dont again start playing chess with the future of syrian people and trying to please her `partners` and her own national interest.

    Doing what the author of this article is suggesting is giving the kurdish scum again rights they never had and recognize their right to take parts of syria and declare them their own which it be a very big mistake in the long run. Only very stupid people put a snake on their chest to warm it up because they feel sorry for it. I hope the syrians are not that stupid.

    • seawolf

      But, if it wasn’t for Russian interests, why else Putin and the Russian military engaged heavily on the side of Assad?

      • jorge

        But, what in reality are those “russian interests”? Or puting the question more on the ground, what Russian interests the Russian army is protecting in the syrian battleground (it’s a war)? And as anything to do with what Lavrov one time said: “it’s enough”?

        • jako

          Strange question jorge (if I understood it well)…
          Russians keep repeating that reason for their participation in Syrian war was fight against Islamic terrorists in Syria.
          Only “Russian interest” is to preserve Syria from becoming hotbed of terrorism ever to protect Russia from fanatics spreading it on Caucasus (and starting another civil war in Russia).

          That was extremely transparent platform and ENDLESSLY repeated by Russians to the Russians and everybody else…

          • jorge

            Lets see if someone´s has something to say to that. Lavrov said ‘it’s enough´ to the western attack of ancient russian allies or friendly countries, when they atack both Ukraine and Syria, after Jugoslavia, Iraq, Lybia ando some others. He meant: enough is enough”.

          • jako

            But didn’t you get that impression that Ukraine is ABSOLUTE red line?!
            I think that from Putin down to every Russian official has been repeated all the time that there will be no backing from Ukraine.
            If Ukraine enters the NATO Russia will see that as declaration of WAR and act accordingly!

            As for Syria – Russians are not in Syria for PR or for barbecue ….Russians are not going anywhere from Syria.
            Also once Syria & Ukraine resolved Russia will go back on Balkans to back up Serbia with concrete help and interventions.
            Because at the moment Balkans are controlled totally by Germans & Americans and it was never like that in the history of the Balkans.
            Some balance must be RESTORED.
            Country like Bulgaria was never pro American and against Russia like now. They are controlled by American puppet government and that is simply against will of the Slavic people who live in the region to become enemies of Russia

          • jorge

            And why Syria is not the red line? Ukranians and Russians are the same thing, more Mongol or less Polish.

          • jako

            Why Syria is not the red line I think it is more than obvious!!?
            If somebody wants to brake into your apartment you don’t ask why… You react in that situation and try to throw intruder out.
            And you don’t react the same in some distant place (and Syria is the distant place) …Assad didn’t even ask Russia for help (went to France 1st. and when refused) only in the last moment he went to Russia for help in 2015 as you know…
            Richard D is obsessed bigoted idiot. Jews are not problem but Zionists and not every Jew is Zionist also plenty of “goyim” are Zionists as well.
            Zionists ,Imperialism, neocolonialism hunger to rip off whole planet from the resources and hunger to easily get obscenely rich through endless wars!
            Those are the core problems of the humanity the way I see it.
            The problem that bad guys are not giving up so easily and they got plenty of sheeple and huge resources at their disposal

          • jorge

            Syria is really the deadh line, it’s only sand and death, as an anglosaxon tycoon said. Anglosaxons, migrate to Mars, and take the nazis, zionists and jihadists with you!

          • jako

            Can’t agree more jorge

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        exactly my point kid, definitely not out of the goodness of their heart and for what is right.

    • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

      Do you know the meaning of the word ‘traitor’ ?

      I dont think you do.
      The Kurds haven’t betrayed anyone.
      It’s the Americans that have betrayed them.
      That’s the only betrayal going on in Syria.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        hey you obviously very limited on the upstairs department and a kurd lover who think they have the right to steal parts of the land that given them shelter and hospitality. How jewish of you. I will not argue with someone who obviously oblivious of reality.

        • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

          Your childish response (not the first time) does not put you in such a great light in this comment section…

          Every people are entitled to freedom. Its part of the United Nations Charts…

          You just really hate Kurds for some reason…
          Are you a Turkish national maybe? That would explain it to a certain degree.

          • jorge

            Well, lets apply that someday to Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, to see what will happen

          • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

            Are you saying those states are different than the rest of the States of America ?

            By different we mean diferent ethnicities…You do understand that right ?

          • jorge

            Two ancient wars against Mexico and an actual discussion about an border wall, and there are few anglosaxon mixed indians but many, many, many latin mixed indians, better, hispanic mixed indians.

          • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

            The Indians, the native American ones would have my blessing if they d ever get close to having their own country.

            They were there before the murderous European scum arrived and slaughtered them …

            The Latin Americans, the immigrants have no legal case …They were collonists like the white man.

            Trump’s wall has got nothing to do with anything.

          • jorge

            Trump wall is the continuation of the war against the indians, the vast majority of Mexico and Central America population as indian roots.

          • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

            Thats got nothing at all to do with reallity fella.
            The only reason Trump is trying to build that wall is cause he promised it at his election campaign to his right wing fanatic redneck voters of the American South.

          • jorge

            Well, we have changed some points of view, about an reality that is always changing.

          • Snowglobe

            My understanding is a bit different about the need for the border wall. It is for static security, making it easier for the Border Officers and support staff to be able to do their jobs.

            In the last few decades there has been an exponential increase in the drug trade, organised crime/cabals (MS-13 in particular with La Raza) and human trafficking. There are deals made across the border that have destroyed many peoples lives and have made other people rich. The highest earners are the Cartels South of the border and Washington DC (C_A) and the tenticles that spread out from there.

            Static security at the border is going to disrupt the supply chain. It is a good move in the fight to stop the corruption and culture of death. We all know of the beheading south of the border of anyone that gets in the way. North of the border laws have been twisted and created to protect and sustain the perpetrators up to and including the use of the IRS.

            Another factor is the understandable blow back that has been created by the the insane Neo-Con foreign policy for 20 years that has created millions of victims across the ocean. Their orphaned children are now grown up and rightfully want revenge.

            What kind of world are we going to hand to our children.

            To me it makes sense for the US to withdraw their troops, build a wall and for the diplomats (Not the Neo-Cons) to negotiate further. Perhaps the world for our great grandchildren will be a better place.

          • gustavo

            It seems to me that Drug is controlled by USA, through DEA cartel CIA-Pentagon (multi-billion dollars business). USA-Europe must stop consuming drug in order to stop production.

          • Snowglobe

            You are right. The testicles of this are mind boggling.

            I have spent a chunk of my life working front line in this battle. I am on the side of anyone who is taking it on.

          • jorge

            Snow, by chance you are reading Edgar Allan Poe? He was a bit confused.

          • Snowglobe

            The spelling is now corrected. ;-)

          • jorge

            Never the less, there are great numbers of hispanic indians trying to take what is of them, and was stolen. This futur wall will have the same faith of the Berlin wall.

          • Snowglobe

            It is an extreme solution. I do understand and sympathize with the Native american populations. I cannot know for sure, but in my own country and experience, it is the indigenous people who are being decimated by the drug blight than the invading populations.

            At one time the Great Wall of China was built for a reason. My guess is that it was because all other attempts at finding solutions failed. I think that this is the case in the US, and even with a wall, the fight will not nearly be over. My suggestion for the next step would be putting Washington under siege. I doubt that my suggestion will be considered.

          • jorge

            but, Snow, what fight will not be over?

          • Snowglobe

            A five dimensional chess board would be the minimum requirement. ;-)

            Yes, and if you get 10 or 20 it will be a bit hard, but thanks for the help.

  • viktor ziv

    “He said that the YPG would join the SAA only after political agreements are concluded on how to form a joint army.” – I must be missing something here, at least on what ground YPG can form “joint” army? Legitimate army is SAA, YPG and others are not legitimate hence terrorists.

    • Mustafa Mehmet

      Bravo

    • jako

      They can form “joint” army only if SAA doesn’t change anything and Kurds accept SAA high command and Syria as one and indivisible country and president Assad as their legitimately elected president.

      And before they become again Syrian citizens they will pass process of RECONCILIATION just like many “moderate rebels” before them to be accepted within the Syria again

      • jorge

        Jako, with the SAA there wasn’t big fights. And were much more the cases of cooperation between them and the SAA.

        • jako

          The reason that there were “no fights” was more geographic than any other reason….
          Jorge they have killed quite few SAA soldiers in 2 different occasions in Hasaqah while SAA never tried to “pay them back” in Afrin or Aleppo even though they could do that easily.
          Remember Afrin when they have refused HONORABLE Russian offer for help and later…when they lost …they were badmouthing SAA and Russia for not helping them?!?
          They are traitorous in their nature and not to be trusted ever !

          True they have been deceived by U.S. to turn their back on Syria but that is the same story like the story of the wife who cheated on her husband and once rejected by lover DEMANDS conditions to to her husband return back…

          To be forgiving (under certain conditions only) but to forgive and forget everything with NO conditions would be VERY stupid.

          • jorge

            Syrians have not been stupids, by the contrary.

          • jako

            I hope they are not and that they will not be in the future as well.
            They can’t afford that luxury because they have too many enemies.

            Syria should be split up in Emirates and You can get one too, so the majority can have some peace.

            So far 550.000 dead is not enough. Several 1000s only has one leg and probatly 100s not even has testicles anymore as well.

            If you are so in favor of creating “Emirates” do it …Create 2 Emirates on your Greenland for your beloved Kurds and “moderate rebels”.

            “550.000 dead” because Assad didn’t want run away and Syrian army didn’t surrender to be slaughtered?…Is that what are you saying?!
            It is your Western NATO CRIMINALS who brought these foreigners to recreate Libya scenario but now you game is FINISHED!

    • Master Oroko

      *doesn’t join them.

      • jorge

        They can’t join as autonomous ethnical unities, or even great ethnical unities, but, in the measure that it will not be a danger for the Syrian unity, it’s always possible to have integrated and subordinated regional unities in the army of a country with several ethnic minorities.

        • Master Oroko

          I don’t believe there should be an autonomous region based off of ethnicity.

          • jorge

            Neither do I, because there are no syrian regions with only one or even two ethnic national minorities alone.

          • Master Oroko

            Yeah, you put it pretty well.

  • jako

    ” highly likely to join the Syrian Arab Army (SAA)”

    To join it HOW?!
    Unconditionally as an INTEGRAL part of SAA under the command of SAA officers yes!
    Everything else is “highly likely” bullshit not in the best interest of SAA and Syria

  • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

    The YPG should join Assad’s Syrian army and after they kick the invading army of the Turks and the Turkish terrorists in Idlib and elsewhere in Syria then they should declare their autonomy from Syria or form some sort of union with Syria and why not with Libanon too.

      vote up with a reserve: The US is turning it over because was forced to do it, and don’t forget that Mad Rat Bolton is also a part of the U.S. of A.

      • GRAHL

        Well, of course it depends on the use of the word “force”. IMO no other entity forces the US to do anything. thats been the problem all along. This pullout, however, is a stroke of genius. So either Trump deserves credit for the move or this was just plain dumb luck. My fear, of course, is that the Pentagon and CIA find other bullshit “reasons” to keep meddling with Syrias affairs and drags this out.

The only way out of this is to become Syria citizens, accept Syria laws, forget their stupid idea (planted by USA-Israel) of separation of Syria, become part of SAA (if they want to, as Syria citizen but nothing about joined army), and surrender all of their weapons to SAA.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    Between about february and June/July last year the Kurds sent nearly 50 delegations to Assad, one of those delegations promised to do exactly what this article says they will, Assad refused them that time, but he won’t anymore, he no longer has to offer them self autonomy to get them to do that, and now it will be under a SAA banner, not a YPG banner.
    The Kurds promised a lot during the course of sending those 50 delegation to Assad and got nothing in return, if they’d agreed to Assad’s terms back before June/July they would have gotten a much better deal than they will now, too late I’m afraid, now they get what they’re given.
    Trump even told the Kurds to take the good deal Assad was offering them, but they held out for self autonomy, they should have realized back then that Trump was definitely pulling out and not just bluffing.
    Now they know for sure he’s definitely leaving, though not everyone else believes it, they aren’t reading the Kurdish news sites obviously.
    The Kurds are all returning to Assad, they no longer rely on the US, if the Kurds tell the US to leave and they aren’t needed anymore, who’s going to ask them to stay, the Arabs, the Christians the Turkmen, probably not, definitely not the Arabs who make up nearly half the population and are the majority voting group in the regions concerned. They make up the biggest voting block, so just the Kurds and Arabs alone account for nearly 70 to 75% of the population here, if these 2 groups alone want the US out, the US couldn’t stay even if they wanted to.
    The Kurds will never trust the US again, they know even if they did somehow manage to arrange for the US to stay and protect them, it would only be until the next time it happened, and they’d know there was a good chance of that in the near future. The US is beholden to Turkey in ways that Syria isn’t, Assad will never have to barter with Erdogan concerning Syrian territorial integrity, the Kurds know the US will though, they just lived through it, Assad has become the best bet for them now, they know there’s no reliable future with the US, only Assad.
    Why didn’t the Kurds listen to Trump back in January when he told them to start negotiating with Assad and get a good deal, and to do it because he was about to pull out Syria altogether, it’s because they didn’t listen to him and believed the deep state instead, they read all the deep states expert articles by their proxy propaganda outlets, and then came to the same conclusions that 99.9% of the rest of the world did, Trump’s just lying. People have to stop doing that, look where it got the Kurds.
