Russia warned of an explosion of the ‘Kurdish Problem’ in the east of Euphrates, in the north of Syria, due to the US continuous meddling from far away, while Erdogan, NATO’s 2nd top leader, takes advantage of the current stalemate to beef up his forces of the Turkish army and al Qaeda affiliates, Trump forces increasing presence in the far east of Syria, amidst clashes between the US-sponsored armed militias in the region.
During the past 24 hours, about 200 Turkish vehicles and trucks entered Syrian territory, in 9 batches, through the Kafrlossin crossing in the northern countryside of Idlib, and headed towards the Turkish points in the region (another article soon to show the Turkish deployment with a map)
Simultaneously, a new convoy of trucks loaded with armored vehicles, logistical materials, and equipment entered through the illegal “Al-Walid” crossing from Iraqi territory to the city of Rumailan – 70 kilometers to the east of Qamishli city in the countryside of Hasaka – in a continuous violation of the sovereignty of the Syrian territories by the US occupation.
It has become very clear that this illegal military expansion by the American and Turkish occupations is only spreading chaos, which appears in the escalation of clashes and the anonymous assassinations in the eastern Euphrates area.
Yesterday at dawn, violent clashes erupted – which is not the first of its kind – between the “Manbij Military Council of Qasd” (SDF) forces and the so-called “Free Army” factions loyal to Turkey, after an infiltration attempt carried out by the Turkish backed terrorists in the axes of Arab Hassan and Al-Jat, at the Sajour River in the northern countryside of Manbij, in Aleppo’s northeastern countryside, causing civilian casualties due to the exchange of shells between the two sides.
During the past months, several anonymous attacks against the US occupation bases with Katyusha rockets and mortar shells were reported. Activists also reported that at least two American soldiers lost contact with their base when their Humvee was found empty alongside the road nearly three months ago, in addition to a recently circulated news of sniping one of the American soldiers near an oil field in Deir Ezzor, which indicates to the increase of resistance operations in the region and its development to take a direct direction.
On October 5, the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, warned of the “explosion” of the Kurdish issue due to the American actions in Syria, stressing the need to prevent the violation of its territorial integrity.
Lavrov said, in a press conference, that “the Americans are trying to establish a Kurdish autonomy” in northern Syria “that will have powers similar to state authorities,” adding: “We also know that they [Americans] seek to convince the Turks not to object to this.”
He continued, “It is always a blatant violation of international law to play with territorial integrity of any country. In this specific case, it is not about Syria alone, but also about the Kurdish issue that may explode in a way that will make the current situation appear, well, far less serious,”
The Russian Foreign Minister explained that the ‘Kurdish issue’ concerns a large number of countries in the Middle East, warning: “Invitation to separatism – and not just an invitation, but active promotion of separatism – may end very badly. Once again, this is done by a country from far beyond the ocean, while the consequences will be dealt with by the countries of the region, as well as Europe – and we [Russia] are not too far away ourselves”
