Footage of a 'burning tanker' which may corroborate #SDF claims of targeting #IslamicState spokesman Abu Al-Hassan al-Muhajiir.
@AleppoAMC confirmed a 'rocket attack' against Ain al-Bayda, same village mentioned in Mazloum's most recent tweet.
#Syria journo @AbdullahAlmu7md with local contacts in the immediate vicinity of the strike can confirm 'at least 3 airstrikes' against an oil tanker. Villagers discovered 3 charred bodies inside one of the tanker's empty fuel cells.
Close up footage of the tanker from @AbdullahAlmu7md shows still burning truck/tanker with #TFSA from a nearby checkpoint coming to inspect wreckage. 3 charred bodies believed to have been found. #SDF leader says #IslamicState spox was target in @CJTFOIR strike.

AGGIORNAMENTI DAL #ROJAVA – SIRIA DEL NORD

GIORNO 7 (15/10/2019) – Ore 10:30

#Serekaniye totalmente sotto contro SDF, scontri ad ovest di #Kobane, vittime civili a #Manbij, la mezzaluna rossa curda lancia un appello: "disastro umanitario".

#Thread #Rojava #Siria
E’ stata una nottata di resistenza quella appena trascorsa nella Siria del Nord. La città di Serekaniye, assediata da giorni da migliaia di forze dell’esercito turco e delle brigate jhiadiste sostenute da Erdogan, è totalmente sotto il controllo delle SDF.
Dopo continui attacchi supportati da raid aerei, diversi report parlano di un attacco da parte delle SDF che ha colto di sorpresa il nemico: alcune brigate jhiadiste si sarebbero addirittura ritirate in Turchia lasciando il posto alle forze speciali turche, che tuttavia ->

#Russia took over a fully intact @USArmy base west of #Manbij.
#TrumpRussia
@USArmy Gosh oh gosh oh gosh ...
The Americans left the base so quickly (and didn't burn it down afterwards), the Russians are now gathering intelligence inside the facility ...
"Stable genius as work" is all I can think of ...
@USArmy According to Kremlin-loyal news, #American soldiers not only left Coke for the #Russians in their abandoned base.
"педик" means "fag".

Important updates from Syria today:
The SDF's @Xelilaldar suggests the deal with the Syrian regime and Russia is limited to the border areas.

From Derek to Sere Kaniye (Ras al-Ayn), and from Tal Abyad to Manbij.

Sere Kaniye and Tal Abyad are not included in the agreement.
@Xelilaldar The SDF is hoping to create a buffer to "concentrate fighting in Sere Kaniye, Tal Abyad. In Raqqa, we have the upper hand."

Thread/ These are the main points in the agreement between the #SDF and the Syrian government. #Syria
1/ The abolishment of the #SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces), with all the current Kurdish forces and military groups joining the 5th Corps (Assault Legion) under Russian control
2/ A solid guarantee of full Kurdish rights in the new Syrian constitution with autonomy which will be agreed upon by Kurdish leadership & Syrian state.

My two cents on #Kurds-Assad deal:
1) on paper, it aims to push #Turkey back from #Syria border but in reality #Russia is signalling to TR that t/ road to neutralizing YPG/PKK passes thru Damascus &thru talks w/ Kurds. So, Russians are providing TR w/ a taste of 1998 Adana pact?!
2) Russia is seeking to convince #Turkey that Moscow can fruitfully mediate btw Ankara & YPG/PKK to a) prevent war in N Syria by creating TR's buffer zones & b) help dampen TR's security concerns by deploying Syrian army in #Manbij, #Kobani & possibly elsewhere. TR's reaction..👇
3) Unless there is a bigger deal btw US-#Turkey, Ankara would prefer to have Syrian troops in the border than YPG/PKK. This depends on effectively reviving/modifying the Adana pact. If implemented swiftly & safely,the deal might (long-term) drag TR into rapprochement w/ Damascus.

1. MANBIJ REPORT: There are false reports that US forces have blocked the Syrian convoy including elements of the Russian army reaching Manbij. Repeat, those reports are false. US, Regime and Russia are in contact for operational security and the transfer of control.
2. Confirming that the Turkish Army and its Jihadist FSA are moving north from Jarabulus and may contact the Syrian, SDF and Russian force in the morning. IMO not confirming from any source, just my view, we may see air combat. Can't recall the last time I saw a dog fight.
3. The hand over to Syrian Army at Manbij has been delayed due to US @USSOCOM equipment problems that are supposed to be remedied tomorrow. IMO not confirming from any source, just my view, we may see US forces attacked by Turkey in the morning.

#BREAKING: I just received confirmation that #US Army Special Forces are forced by #US Government to block the roads to #Manbij on #Syria Arab Army. Possibly that #Trump has already made a deal with #Erdogan! But things might change tonight!
It is also possible that #USArmy SOF has temporarily blocked the roads in-order to evacuate heavy equipment it had in its observation posts around #Manbij. Or perhaps they still try to convince #SDF to take-over remaining important #ISIL commanders imprisoned in #Manbij prison?!
#BREAKING: #VOA's journalist who is on the ground in NE #Syria is now witnessing that how #US has stopped #Syria Arab Army from preventing massacre of the Kurds in #Manbij by #Turkish Army & its terrorists. #US Special Forces have stopped #Syrian Army!

Great News!

The Kurdish SDF has agreed to cede control of Manbij and Kobane to Syrian Government control to prevent the invading Turkish Army from attacking and taking these towns
southfront.org/syrian-army-ma…
The Syrian Army is advancing into key towns in Northern Syria with the agreement of the Kurds as the U.S. withdraws, in a deal brokered by Russia.

Manbij
Kobani
Qamishli
and others
This is GREAT news for anyone who wants Peace and an end to the horrific War in Syria, which was started in 2011 by the U.S. and UK arming al-Qaeda and other terrorist proxies.

Meanwhile back in Washington DC, Neocon heads have started exploding!

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.

Sad to say it, but it’s over.
#Qamishli
The Internet has been cut off from the whole of Qamishli, only Syriatel 3G still work. Something wrong is happening.
After the news about the deal between #SDF and #Damascus, I saw families start leaving #Qamishli, they are scared that the city is part of the deal not just #Manbij and #Kobane

Reports that #Russia & #Damascus will take #Manbij

Almost certainly confirmed & is easy enough, Russian-trained & equipped #SAA units have been stations just outside Manbij for almost a year now
#1st_Division also sent some reinforcements to #Qamishlo airport yesterday. Not originally planning for today's events but they're there now.
It's important to recognize that #Assad does not have the resources to govern the territory of #Rojava on his own. The #SAA is stretched thin enough dealing with an insurgency in #Daraa & keeping pressure on #Idlib & there are near daily #ISIS attacks in central #Syria...

That “1000” is, roughly, the entire US presence in #Syria.

What does “northern #Syria” mean? Are they being drawn down to Deir ez Zour? Are we seeing an Arab-focused last chance strategy in slow formation?
The U.S. withdrawal from #Syria is underway, as directed overnight by #Trump & supported by @DeptofDefense.

As I wrote a few days ago, opening the doors to #Turkey put the writing on the wall.

- "Making America Great Again” has never sounded so vapid."

@DeptofDefense HUGE developments in north #Syria, as the #SDF agrees a de facto surrender deal w. the #Assad regime, in return for a #Russia-backed #SAA move to block #Turkey's advances.

Looks like #Manbij, #Kobani, #Qamishli & possibly #Raqqa are all included in this agreement.

#SAA moving.

I am so glad you finally came out and said it: The #Syria Mess is #Obama’s fault as “one man” who implemented it. And “One Woman’s” fault who was “his” architect in “his” #StateDepartment: @HillaryClinton. Bravo 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
After all, in November 2011, I blew the whistle on “Both of You” And was the first to Expose your #ISIS Camp In #Turkey & Your Preparations for #Syria Operations right after #Libya @HillaryClinton #Obama. Here it is on dated & on Record: newsbud.com/2011/11/21/bfp…
Nothing like a good public confession for the soul. A few more and you may start seeing some soul cleansing.

If people read US Defense Secretacy @EsperDoD speech, it is clear that USArmy is not between Turkish Army and PKK Terrorists,the later one (PKK) is called as ally by USA

Already Turkey continues to operation according to the talk between Mr. Trump and President of Turkey, Mr. @RTErdogan.
