Hours away to end 2019, the new stage of Syrian war has officially settled down, where politics decisions have replaced in an important way the military campaigns, mostly focused on the last terrorist reducts: (1)
2019 started as 2018 ended, #SDF continued #CizireStorm operation against last #ISIS stronghold, battle proved difficult & took 3 month to liberate the last 70 Km^2 under #ISIS control. On March 23 2019 #ISIS finally lost the last urban territories & became an insurgent group (2)
Turkish pressure had delayed any military operations in "Greater #Idlib" during 9 months since Sochi agreement. However, the continue violations of this agreement force #SAA to launch the first stage of #IdlibDawn. Between (6/5/2019-6/6/2019) #SAA liberated 134 Km^2 (3)

That #Baghdadi was killed in #Idlib will come as no surprise to Damascus who were long aware of much more extensive relations between #AlQaeda #Nusra and #ISIS . The reconciliation between the two groups started after ISIS suffered significant losses in Mosul.

Thread —>
2-To suggest that #Baghdadi was in #Idlib without the knowledge, Patronage and protection of #AlQaeda ‘s Golani who controls the province is naive.

Indeed, the groups have worked together since 2017 and this cooperation has gone unreported by many #Syria experts
3-Cooperation started in earnest as #ISIS was desperately trying to have its fighters leave #Raqqa which was under heavy coalition strikes. The deal with #AlQaeda involved moving first ISIS ‘s #Uyghur fighters since those fighters had left their families in #Idlib before joining

Thoughts on the option to retain a few hundred US troops in Deir ez Zour

Mission is still counter-#ISIS but the policy concerns include preventing #Iran, #Assad, & #Russia from seizing the oil fields. Our presence has (so far) had that secondary effect

So what can ~200 guys do?
~200 guys at best gives us a foothold & preserves:

-intel --> high value strikes on #ISIS & #AlQaeda
-some tribal support. At minimum ability to compete 4 it
-some kinetic ability to defend vs #Assad,#Iran,#Russia expansion
-option 2 surge forces again

NOT a long term solution
A small presence of ~200 guys essentially means a single US base in Deir ez Zour. It does not enable us to secure all of the oil fields. The #SDF would be responsible for securing that infrastructure, with - in theory - air and artillery support from our limited residual force

1. Ongoing thread covering #IS’s response to and comms around recent developments in northern #Syria. Focus will be on camps, prisons and tactics.
2. 9 Oct: Something weird going on in #Raqqa, which was, per #SDF reports last night, subject to a “large-scale assault” by #IS. Meanwhile, total radio silence from #IS.
3. This is strange. When #IS has mounted flash urban assaults in years gone by, it has intensively reported on them, often as the attacks were ongoing. Think #Palmyra, Dec 16; Kirkuk, Oct 16, #Rutbah, May 16, #Kobane, Jun 15.

Following the launch of #Turkish military operations and the extremely volatile situation in northeast #Syria @MSF has taken the difficult decision to suspend the majority of its activities and #evacuate all its international staff from northeast Syria. #OperationPeaceSpring
@MSF Since Wednesday 9 October, the extreme volatile situation in northeast Syria has forced MSF international staff to evacuate from MSF’s projects in Ain Issa, Al Hol, Tal Abyad, Tal Tamer, Tal Kocher/ Yaroubiyah, #Kobane/ Ain Al Arab and #Raqqa city. #OperationPeaceSpring
@MSF These have been extremely difficult decisions, as @MSF
is very aware of the needs of fleeing and vulnerable people in the region. #OperationPeaceSpring

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.

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.

Avant même le début de l'opération anti terroriste de la #Turquie au nord de la #Syrie contre la milice marxiste kurde #PKK classée terroriste, une grande opération de propagande a été lancée dans tous les médias occidentaux!

Voici un thread sur les éléments de cette propagande
1. Dans tous les articles ou émissions sur cette opération, on annonce que la cible est bien "LES KURDES"

L'objectif est de diaboliser l'opération et la #Turquie en la montrant contre un groupe ethnique, longtemps persécuté et non contre un groupe classé terroriste, le #PKK...
Hors la #Turquie est le pays non seulement qui a le plus de citoyens kurdes mais qui accueille 300 000 réfugiés syriens kurdes!!

Rien que le parti de #Erdogan a 40 députés kurdes et bcp de kurdes votent AKP

Pourquoi donc la Turquie attaquerait "les kurdes"? Quel intérêt ?

Some general observations about #IS’s response to #Turkey's incursion into #Syria:
1. ON TACTICS: #IS appears to have reactivated its covert cells in NE #Syria, having put them (mostly) on a back-burner since the second “raid of attrition” in early August.
2. Since #Trump’s volte face, #IS cells have been engaging in unusually impactful, costly & daring ops. An inghimasi op in #Raqqa; a major car bombing in #Qamishli; accelerated assassinations throughout the northeast—this is *not* business as usual.

@EsperDoD @Newsweek @Independent @ragipsoylu @OmerOzkizilcik @malikejder_ @haskologlu After @EsperDoD speech, according to agreement between Turkish Army & US Army, (all US ground troops GPS coordinates have aldreay given), Turkish AirForce and other forces started to bomb some locations in west part of Ayn El Arab (PKK renamed it as Kobani)
@EsperDoD @Newsweek @Independent @ragipsoylu @OmerOzkizilcik @malikejder_ @haskologlu That is clear that Western Media are trying to spread "fake news" against US President @realDonaldTrump to be able to create an pressure in public. Already Turkey continues to operation according to the talk between Mr. Trump and President of Turkey, Mr. @RTErdogan.

- Pulling the #US troops out from #Syria will great a gap might be filled by #ISIS or #Iran #Russia & the #syrian regime & it will be a mistake @realDonaldTrump’s administration will regret for ever

- #ISIS is not fully defeatedin #Syria

cbsnews.com/news/turkey-mo…
- #Turkey won’t be interesting in going all the way deeper to #Raqqa city which is about 150 km from the borders

- #SDF will ally probably with #Russia or the #Syrian regime to protect itself

- the Syrian regime entering #Raqqa = new massacre and 1000s of people will be killed
- I ve always mentioned that the #US is using #SDF as a tool & they’d throw it as soon as they are done with them

- leaving #IS prisoners in #Syria will be a card #SDF will use to threaten the world

- #Iran being in #Raqqa will be a threat not only to #Syria but to the region
