Syria: KURDISH YPG ATTACKING TURKISH-BACKED MILITANTS IN NORTHERN ALEPPO

On October 25, the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) launched a series of attacks on the alliance of Turksih-backed militan groups known as the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in the area northwest of Al-Bab in the Syrian province of Aleppo.

By now, YPG units have entered the villages of Til Madîq, Hecinê, Qarami, Jabal Na’i and Mişerefê and engaged pro-Turkish militants in the villages. Some pro-Kurdish sources argue that some villages have been already taken.

The YPG took an apper hand on the recent decision by the Turkish Armed Forces and their proxies to halt offensive operations in the direction of Kurdish-controlled town of Tell Rifaat....

Amateur footage emerged on Saturday showing what appears to be Turkish soldiers executing two female PKK insurgents at point-blank range.

A ceasefire between Turkey and the PKK ended last year and clashes have since claimed hundreds of lives on both sides.

PRO-TURKEY MILITANTS ATTACK JOINT ARMY-YPG FORCES IN NORTHERN SYRIA

The Rojava Project
A Road Unforeseen is an inspiring account of the autonomous Kurdish region in Syria, but it glosses over Rojava’s contradictions.
by Alex de Jong

Still, A Road Unforeseen convincingly shows that in Rojava “people are trying to do something, and women are at the center.” This attempt, and the Syrian revolution that made it possible, deserves our attention and our solidarity.

http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/turkis ... sCatID=341

Turkish warplanes hit outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) targets in the southeastern province of Diyarbakır on Dec. 7, Doğan News Agency has reported.

Warplanes destroyed a shelter and a weapon emplacement in an air operation, the Turkish Armed Forces said in a written statement.

Meanwhile, PKK militants attacked the provincial building of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) with a hand-made bomb on Dec. 6.

The Kurdish militant group TAK says it carried out Saturday's deadly attack on police outside a stadium in Istanbul.
The TAK, an offshoot of the banned Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), made the claim on its website.

Syria: New talks amid shifting alliances


Rojava shift

ISIS is close to being defeated in Syria. In the wake of its defeat, the Rojava revolution has spread to become a revolutionary force in broader areas of northern Syria. Behind the SDF is the revolutionary system of “democratic self-administration” pioneered in Rojava.

On November 30, the Constituent Assembly of the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria — the areas under “democratic self-administration” — declared their system “to be a democratic solution for the future of Syria and a system to guarantee an exit from the current crisis and to prevent social collapse.

“In addition, the administration experience we have achieved since the July 19 revolution that occurred with the participation of all peoples has posed an example for all of Syria.”

The Constituent Assembly changed the name of the federation from Democratic Federation of Northern Syria-Rojava, removing “Rojava”. This emphasised that their aim is a democratic Syria, not Kurdish separatism.

Stopping this democratic Syria is the aim that unites Erdoğan and Assad and this will define the next phase of the conflict.

Pissed off armed women. Might be just the thing to seed true democracy in the region. Reminds me off the stories of the effectiveness of female Russian snipers during WWII. Any hunters here understand the importance of patience. And women are well versed in patience given what the have to put up with...men. LOL.

Turkey bombards YPG positions in Afrin province
By Paul Antonopoulos - 07/02/2017
https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/tu ... -province/

Kurdish officials on Monday accused the Turkish army of shelling the villages of Maranaaz, Vilat al-Qadi, Sheikh Issa east of Afrin district and entering Syrian territory, ARA News reported.

Turkish media also confirmed the shelling.
*************************************************************************

Interesting that the UN is absolut calm about the illegal Turkish bombartment and invasion in Syria

The SDF is a legitim Syrian people (Kurds) Organisation => it is indeed an Act of War against Syria so the SAA +SDF has the right to strike back and defend Syria against Turkey.

Turkish Army uses ISIS as an excuse to attack Kurdish forces in northern Syria
By Leith Fadel - 14/02/2017

The Turkish Army and their rebel associates have recently intensified their attacks against the Kurdish-led “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF) in northern Syria, despite the fact they are nowhere near the front-lines with the Islamic State (ISIS).

Turkish-backed rebels boasted on their social media accounts, Tuesday, about targeting the Kurdish forces in the northern countryside of Aleppo.

The constant harassment of the Kurdish forces is part of the Turkish Army’s plan in Syria, as their battle with the Islamic State is just a facade that is hiding their true intentions.

*****************************************************

Rojava is the only left basic democratic structure in the whole Region despite Israel.

That the new Turkish Dictator Erdogan whants to destroy it is logical because he wants this piece of Syria for "Great Turkey".

BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:25 P.M.) – The Turkish Army transported several vehicles to the northern countryside of Aleppo this weekend in order to beef up their numbers before launching an attack against the Kurdish-led “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF).

Photos from the Menbeij area of Aleppo emerged on Saturday, showing the Turkish Army transporting several armored vehicles towards their main front-line against the Kurdish forces.

This latest move by the Turkish Army comes just 48 hours after their president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, vowed to capture Menbeij from the “PKK forces.”

Knowing a bit about the history of the region I've always thought the thread title a bit off. The armed conflict between the Kurds and Turkey officially began some time ago. From wiki:

The Kurdish–Turkish conflict is an armed conflict between the Republic of Turkey and various Kurdish insurgent groups, which have demanded separation from Turkey to create an independent Kurdistan, or to have autonomy and greater political and cultural rights for Kurds inside the Republic of Turkey. The main rebel group is the Kurdistan Workers' Party or PKK (Kurdish: Partiya Karkerên Kurdistan). Although insurgents have carried out attacks in many regions of Turkey, the insurgency is mainly in southeastern Turkey. The PKK's presence in Iraq's Kurdistan Region, from which it also launched attacks, has resulted in the Turkish military carrying out frequent ground incursions and air and artillery strikes in the region. The conflict has cost the economy of Turkey an estimated 300 to 450 billion dollars, mostly military costs. It has also affected tourism in Turkey.

Since the PKK was founded on 27 November 1978, it has been involved in armed clashes with Turkish security forces. The full-scale insurgency, however, did not begin until 15 August 1984, when the PKK announced a Kurdish uprising. The first insurgency lasted until 1 September 1999, when the PKK declared a unilateral ceasefire. The armed conflict was later resumed on 1 June 2004, when the PKK declared an end to its ceasefire. Since summer 2011, the conflict has become increasingly violent with resumption of large-scale hostilities. In 2013 the Turkish Government and the jailed PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan started talks. On 21 March 2013, Öcalan announced the "end of armed struggle" and a ceasefire with peace talks. On July 25, 2015, the PKK finally cancelled their 2013 ceasefire after a year of tension due to various events, including the Turks bombing PKK positions in Iraq, in the midst of the Kurds' battle against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

Kurds urge Trump to establish ‘safe zones’ in northern Syria
https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/ku ... ern-syria/
BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:26 P.M.) – Over 150,000 IDPs (Internally Displaced Persons) have arrived in Manbij recently, said Shervan Derwish, Kurdish official spokesperson for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), suggesting that the areas under SDF control could become safe zones that US President Donald Trump has called for, ARA News reported.

“During this month, over 150k IDPs reached Manbij area, coming from Deir Hafer and al-Khafsah, proving our area as a safe zone for Syrian civilians,” Darwish said.

“The protection of displaced people and refugees is our moral and humanitarian obligation, and we will give them all support needed,” he added.

“If there is a project for no-fly-zones in Syria, all conditions are possible in the areas under the SDF control,” he suggested....

As I've read more there are some parallels with the Texas revolution against the Mexican govt. The "Texicans" were not all Mexican citizens and thus had no rights. One big reason the Mexican govt established the territory was to provide a buffer between Mexico and the native American tribes. Since Mexico had little to no control over the region they gave up little by allowing the Texicans to earn land there. Kinda similar to the buffer the Kurds provide between the Syrians and Turks. Of course the Turks didn't care for the Kurds "stealing" some of its lands anymore then the native Americans cared for the Texicans stealing theirs.

Eventually the Mexican govt could no longer tolerate the independent attitude of the Texicans...just as the Turks feel about Kurdish "independence". So in both cases the situation might be resolved by killing those seeking autonomy. The Mexican govt came close but lost it all at San Jacinto...a few miles from where I type. I see the Texas monument (intentionally built a tad taller then the Washington Monument) every time I drive into Houston.

Interesting that the Kurds are trying to put out a bigger umbrella that includes non-Kurds. The original Texicans included many Mexican citizens fighting for the same independence from Mexico City. Lots of cities and streets in Texas commemorating those Mexicans.

Now we'll see if the Kurds have their own "Alamo" (or Goliad. Yes: the complete cry was "Remember the Alamo...remember Goliad!) where they are slaughtered by Turks and/or Syrians. And if they also have a similar victory at their "San Jacinto" final battle field. A Texas victorious battle that took all of 18 minutes to beat General Santa Anna's army and forcing him to surrender to the Texican army.

BTW though denied at the time the US govt did provide the Texicans with some support. Hmm, the US govt providing some support to the Kurds? There's a novel idea. LOL.

"Shouldn't we finish up our work "helping" the Afghanis and the Iraqis and the Libyans..." No, all lost causes IMHO. We could use one strong ally in the region and the Kurds seem the most likely. Same reason we should have went into S Vietnam in the 60's. Except we should have helped drive the French out. LOL. But yes, seriously.
