The closer the date of the announced referendum on independence in Iraqi Kurdistan – September 25, 2017, the more difficult the situation becomes in the Kurdish regions of Iraq and Syria. The forces of democratic Syria “(SDF) tried to counterattack twice the Syrian army and the Russian military police. And, as reported, for this reason, the Americans and the SDF units even stopped fighting for Raqqa the Syrian “capital” of terrorists from the “Islamic State”. It alleged that this offensive of Islamist militants was initiated by US special services.
In these foul-smelling attempts by the Americans and their allies to actually unite their efforts against Syria, as well as against Russia and Iran, as per Russain Experts. SDF is a very colourful “coalition”, there are detachments of Christian, some Bedouin tribes, and various assailants of the “new Syrian opposition”.
How did the US manage to Attract the Syrian Kurds
How did the US manage to draw the Syrian Kurds into provocations against Syria and Russia, considering, let us remind you again, the fact that the core of the SDF’s strike force is made up of Syrian Kurds from the YPG squads? After all, the same Syrian Kurds, even in winter, provided Russia with a kind of base – a “military camp” in the controlled by YPG Africa on the border with Turkey. Now it turns out that Kurdish forces are being used by the US special forces in Syria in parallel with their “cadets” of terrorist groups precisely to at least significantly hamper the advance of Syria, Russia and the Shiites in the east to the borders of Iraq, to slow the withdrawal of these allies to south to the borders with Israel and Jordan, as well as to keep from liberation against Raqqa and the province of Idlib.
As per Russian Experts, the Kurdish forces are being used by the US special forces in Syria in parallel with their “cadets” of terrorist groups precisely to at least significantly hamper the advance of Syria, Russia and the Shiites in the east to the borders of Iraq, to slow the withdrawal of these allies to south to the borders with Israel and Jordan, as well as to keep from liberation against Raqqa and the province of Idlib.
The statement was adopted following the results of the meeting of representatives of Iran, Iraq and Turkey on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York and distributed on behalf of the Turkish Foreign Ministry. Tehran, Baghdad and Ankara confirm their commitment to the territorial integrity of Iraq and express their “unequivocal opposition to the referendum.” They also point to plans to resist the separatism of Iraqi Kurds as “countermeasures”, the essence of which is not disclosed in the document.
It is clear that not all “countermeasures” that Iran, the Shiites of Iraq and Turkey can resort to in response to the Kurdish referendum are considered. And it is clear that much will depend on the real attitude to the regional processes of Russia and the US, as well as on the degree of involvement of Israel in “Kurdish independence”. As we all know, Tel Aviv does not hide that “blatant” support to Barzani and Kurdistan referendum.
