Veterans Today in Damascus has been informed by its sources in Europe that Erdogan is planning a large scale operation in the East of the Euphrates against the US backed Kurdish groups, noting that could happen in September. 

Our sources also say that Erdogan who is playing like a clown by shuffling between the US and Russia must pay a heavy price, and his unstable position inside his Party will make out himself in jeopardy, and dragged into a trap framed by the Americans.
Erdogan is spreading now rumors that he has concluded a deal with the US on a safe zone, but our Moscow sources say this is untrue.
Tom Duggan, British journalist and strategists told VT that People in the YPG have told me the following that Turkey offensive stopped during the deal with Russia for s 400s for almost 6 month .but they are expecting a new offensive anytime now .
Ex British Ambassador to Syria Peter Ford said “it looks like ISIS
and its cubs taking advantage of the situation in Idlib to attack Syrian army units stationed in Deir-Ezzor “
“SAA forces elsewhere must have been thinned out to provide reinforcements for Idlib, “he added
Andrew Ashdown from the Church of England says“No surprise here. And no concern for the interests of people and nations.   Deeply worrying developments in Syria with two major attacks by ISIS on the Syrian army in Deir Ezzor in the last 24 hours, and reports of attacks in Quneitra province in the south today.  Meanwhile, the jihadists in Idleb are constantly being resupplied from Turkey, while US supports Kurdish separatists, and controls an area of SE Syria close to an area where there is an ISIS resurgence. (Strange that!)  Add to that the brutal application of sanctions which causes suffering to millions. To what extent is the international community colluding with these multiple factors to force the further weakening of the Syrian State?  Were they to succeed, we would see yet another failed State, extremist ideologues in power, and the destruction of the country’s cultural and religious plurality. What a wonderful achievement!  But that is precisely what our government’s policies could lead to.  The faith leaders in Syria are voices of wisdom and moderation.  But no-one is listening, not even our own faith leaders.  Just another day in a cruel, twisted world.  Lord, have mercy.”

Khalil: General alarm must be announced in N,E against Turkish threats

 Eldar Khalil stressed that Erdogan is serious about his threats in the north and east of Syria, and stressed the need for the public to recognize the seriousness of these threats, he said: “General alarm must be announced at various levels of media and organizational, protection, diplomatic and economic in the face of threats launched by Erdogan.

A member of the Executive Body of the Democratic Society Movement (TEV_DEM), Eldar explained in an interview with our agency, Hawar news agency (ANHA) that the Turkish President Erdogan launched direct threats against the children of north and east of Syria, and said through the media that he will put the children of the north and east under the soil, Khalil said: “These threats are a crime under the laws and international norms “.

During his meeting with the heads of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) branches on July 26, Turkish President Erdogan launched threats in north and east of Syria, saying: “They will either be buried under soil or accept humiliation.”

Eldar Khalil pointed out that Erdogan’s actions in Afrin were clear, Erdogan’s threats were illegitimate and Erdogan did not want to create a democratic regime in north and east of Syria, nor a democratic one. He said: “Turkey has worked in all areas to hit the democratic project in the region, and fought the people of the region in various ways since the beginning of the revolution, from the diplomatic, organizational, economic, media, military … etc.”

Khalil pointed out that after defeating Daesh mercenaries in the north and east of Syria, geographically, the regions of north and east of Syria have become reality and the international community sees for AA positively and is headed towards recognition. The file of prosecuting Daesh mercenaries is increasingly being discussed in the region and the world. There is connection and diplomatic relations between AA and the international community. “These facts do not admire Turkey and they do not bear them, so Erdogan launches his threats,” he said.

Khalil said that Erdogan is serious in his threats, and when he says I will bury you under the soil, it is not unlikely to agree with the regime and Russia so that Idlib handed over to the regime provided that allowed to launch attacks on areas of north and east of Syria, He said: “Everyone knows that the regime and Russia did not make any advance in Idlib as a result of Turkey’s support for mercenaries there.”

Khalil said that even if there was an agreement between the regime and Russia on the one hand and Turkey on the one hand in the area of attacks on areas in northeastern Syria, nothing will change and said: “Because our regions are not under the tutelage of the regime and Russia.”

“The people must be aware of the seriousness of the threats that Erdogan is launching against north and east parts of Syria, which had been liberated by bloods of martyrs’ thousands,” he said. “General alarm must be announced at various levels of information and organizational, protection, diplomatic and economic in the face of threats launched by Erdogan.”

  1. Can the SDF fight the TAF, and the SAA with Russian help mop up the loser?

    Were not Chinese forces supposed to show up in Syria a long time ago – what happened there? Seems it would be in China’s interest to fight the central Asian/middle eastern mercenaries in Syria instead of in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.
