#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.
Talks on Afrin and #Kurds may take few more weeks (yes weeks) to be concluded unless...... Read more about Afrin, the US/Russian struggle in Syria, the Turkish essential role in the deal and more on the topic tomorrow via @AlraiMediaGroup
#Damascus is sending initial 500 local fighters in support of the #Kurds to Afrin today and in the following days.
This initial force is not part of the deal with #Turkey (still contesting the details of the agreement) but a local support from nearby villages and cities, pushed by #Damascus, to stand with the #YPG in #Afrin.
#BreakingNews: Hundreds of Syrian Popular Forces just enter #Afrin NOW
These popular armed forces pushed in support of Kurds in #Afrin advance into the enclave while #Turkey is still bombing Afrin. This is a clear lock of coordination with Turkey and a clear confrontation with Turkish and allies forces in the Kurdish enclave.
First engagement between #Damascus and #Ankara
#Turkey targeted Syrian popular forces while entering #Afrin. These forces continued deep in the enclave and their artillery unit responded to the Turkish shelling.
#Damascus decided to confront #Ankara:
From today onward, #Syrian popular forces ordered by #Damascus to access #Afrin will increase in number on daily basis and will take position opposite the Turkish forces and their allies on all fronts in the enclave.
Unlike what #Turkey P. Erdogan said, Hundreds of Syrian Popular forces from the cities of NUb'bul and Zahraa and other units took position in #Afrin , did not withdraw, and more are forces are expected tomorrow.
