#Turkey knows that #Damascus is not acting alone and that #Russia is not far from seeing the Central government regain control of the Kurdish #Afrin enclave when #Kurds accepted all the Syrian gov conditions +
In the coming weeks, #Russia and #Ankara will have to find a way out to save #Turkey's face and present a scenario where everybody is a winner, including the #Kurds who have managed to save the destruction of the enclave.+

#Russia is discussing/finalising with #Turkey the cease-fire in #Afrin to allow 4000 #SAA men to take control of the entire city, surrounding villages, establish 52 positions in the enclave and deploy forces on the borders with #Turkey.
Thos who believe the deployment of the Syrian army will only be on the 160 km along the borders with #Turkey are mistaken because that was the initial request of the Afrin administration from day one, rejected by the government of #Damascus.
#Few minutes ago, #Damascus was informed that #Turkey is still rejecting few articles in the deal regarding #Afrin. Negotiators are still positive and hope to undo the problem in the next hours.

NEW - #Ahrar al-Sham & Nour al-Din al-Zinki have merged, creating Jabhat Tahrir Souriya, branded with โ€œgreenโ€ revolutionary flag.

- Ahrar leader Hassan Soufan = leader
- #Zinki leader Tawfiq Shahbuddin = deputy

โ€œJTSโ€ calls on other groups to join for greater unity.
#pt: What does โ€œJTSโ€™sโ€ formation mean?

- Unlikely to be a full merger, but closer Ahrar-Zinki coordinating ties have been clear for months.

- Northern #Syriaโ€™s two biggest non-#HTS factions are compiling (with Syrian Islamic Council backing) pressure on #Jolani & HTS.
Iโ€™m told that x4 sub-factions of #HTS have agreed to join the newly formed Jabhat Tahrir Souriya (#JTS) and at least x5 others are negotiating possible terms.

No, as #Astana agreement now in place and regime respecting it : when railway was under control, regime stopped all operations west : #Turkey, #Russia and #Iran already decided about all : regime has no words to say.
This is when you're too weak in your own land to decide. Regime opened the gate for this in september 2015 when, about to face more defeats, decided to give its soverignity to #Russia and #Iran. Note the same happened for rebels in 2016 when they decided to follow #Turkey.
#Syria'ns, from regime side or rebellion side, have no more words about what #Syria to become and what to happen : they're applying what the Troรฏka (#Moscow, #Tehran and #Ankara) is deciding. Those who don't understand that won't understand events ongoing and coming...
