Notable flare-up of strikes & counter-strikes at #Syria/#Iraq border; between #US & #Iran proxies.

(? Timing ?
in the wake of #Saudi-Iranian rapprochement; & few days after serious steps of Saudi-#Assad normalization).…
#US airstrikes on facilities used by #Iran’s proxies came in retaliation to a drone strike in north-east #Syria that killed a US contractor & injured five American troops.
Strikes killed six fighters at an arms depot in the Harabesh neighbourhood in the city of #Deir_Ezzor.

“Diplomacy to de-escalate the crisis appeared immediately around the strikes. #Qatar reported a call between its foreign minister & Jake Sullivan, the #US national security adviser. Qatar’s foreign minister then spoke with the #Iranian FM Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.”

A serious and basic point to keep in mind:

Turkey's priority is to dismantle the YPG statelet, so it's not a horrible idea for it if the Assad regime takes over Kurdish areas.

So if Russia and the regime take areas, that still works for Turkey. But Turkey has conditions.
Turkey had that talk with Russia before it fought in Afrin last year, the YPG pleaded with Russia to save them from the imminent Turkish incursion & even asked Assad to fight with it. But the two sides didn't agree on specifics. Turkey wasn't convinced Russia would do the trick.
This time might be different. Turkey will be happy to have Russia and the regime take over Kurdish areas, as long as they ensure the YPG won't find safe havens.

That's another part where short-termist & de-contextualized thinking about the battles in Raqqa etc failed.
