Syrian Kurds seal deal with Damascus to fend off Turkey | DW News

Kurdish officials in northern Syria say they are working with the Assad government in Damascus to fend off Turkey’s military in their region. In a political and military shift, Kurdish-led forces are to deploy side-by-side with government troops in the Kurdish-controlled region at the country’s border with Turkey. The deal was announced after US President Donald Trump ordered the withdrawal of most of its troops in Syria, opening the way for Turkey to launch its attack. US forces had been supporting the Kurds in the battle against the so-called Islamic State. Turkey sees the Kurdish SDF fighters in the region as terrorists, and is aiming to create a safe zone to resettle Syrian refugees living in Turkey.

  1. Terrorists returned to their initial owner. All the same back in 1980's. Only difference this time is old friends are no more there. Carlos, Baader and Ulrike Meinhof, Abu Nidal…aah good old days.

  2. Create ISIS to vacuum the power help other terrorists (pkk ypg pyd) let them fight against other terrorists (ISIS) becomes hero ppl (Kurds)
    Kurds have Kurdistan (happy Kurds) USA have got puppet country (Kurdistan) whenever they need
    GOOD COMEDY FILM DESERVES OSCAR

  3. KURDS WILL HOLD GUNS FOR ANYONE WHO HELPS THEM HAVE LAND THEY HAVE DONE THIS SINCE ROMANS
    THESE DAY AND AGE YOU DONT KILL LIFE AND ASK FOR LAND (ISREAL DOES THAT)
    They should try other ways rather than selling themselves

  4. Iran officially recognised ypg as kurdish terrorist group, that means all assad and russia, turkey on the same page, ypg dont represents syrian kurds. How can they, they terrorists, kurdish council represents kurds not terrorists groups.

  5. Hey, Americans. Do the weapons you give to terrorists serve the interests of American citizens? Giving somebody a free gun!!! İt only works for arms companies. Likewise in the interests of energy companies because there is oil in Syria.Think about it.
    Do not say it was just for the fighting with Isis. Isis an excuse to enter Syria.
    These are my thoughts so what do you think.

    <3 Love from Turkey <3

  6. We are being led to believe that Turkey is fighting terrorists when Turkey supports terrorists! Are you serious?
    The truth is, the Kurds are fighting terrorists! Al Nusra and the so called Free Syrian Army are ISIS affiliates terrorists backed by Turkey! Wake up people! Sultan Erdogan is a ruthless unforgiving dictator who is obsessed with restoring the Ottoman Empire!

  7. As a Retired US Military Member, tell me WHY my country should go fight a war so far away and possibly DIE defending what? A never ending war….a war that goes on and on and on, WHY? Tell you what, for those that call me a coward, I DIDN'T SEE YOU IN THE LAST WAR WE HAD…..YOU DIDN'T HELP ME WHEN I NEEDED YOU!!! You freaking bunch of hypocrites!

  8. I have an extreme distaste for Islamist extremist that are coming from outside countries and joining into a war with those who they have no ties to when it comes to war except that they are raising there own caliphate and that's their excuse. I mean it's so out of hand now I pray Russia and Turkey end this soon and allow themselves momentum to back Palestine God willing Palestine will see a new light with Russia at its doorstep.

  9. These "Syrian Kurds," the PKK/ YPG have ALREADY been clients of the Assad regime for 40 years. Bahoz Erdal, former YPG head, was a classmate of Assad's, a PKK veteran and also said to be former head of TAK(suicide bombers). Same with "General Mazloum", Sahin Cilo, except the class mate part, but his adopted father Ocalan was a guest of the Assads, gifted with everything a terrorist could want. It goes on like that. Pkk-Syrian and Turkish Alawi connections are even deeper.

  10. Kurds are Directly Descented from INDIA Panjabi-HINDU they carried of her Actual Origin and Used by Different Minoritys as Slaves and after that they Changed her Heritage into a Unknown Identity in fact is that Kurds are from INDIA-Punjabi Region Nothing to do with Caucasus and Turkey its a Big Bluff from the ELITES!!!
