Pro-govt Syrian fighters begin entering Kurdish Afrin despite Turkish threats – Syrian TV

Pro-govt Syrian fighters begin entering Kurdish Afrin
A convoy of fighters waving Syrian flags has apparently entered the northern Kurdish-held region of Afrin, which Turkey is targeting in a cross-border operation, footage on Syrian state TV shows.

The pro-government fighters were filmed entering the village of Nubul in some 20 pickup trucks. An RT source on the ground has confirmed the movement of troops to Afrin.

The deployment comes after a reported deal between Damascus and Kurdish authorities, which sought the involvement of the central government amid a continued fight against Turkey and the militias supported by Ankara.

Turkish officials earlier warned that their forces would lay siege to the city of Afrin if pro-Damascus fighters show up there.

  1. Membri delle milizie fedeli al regime siriano sono entrate nell’enclave curda di Afrin per opporsi all’avanzata turca, nonostante le minacce di Ankara di reagire ad un tale intervento.

    La Turchia bombarda
    La risposta non si è fatta attendere. L’artiglieria turca ha bombardato le aree dove era in transito il convoglio di «forze popolari» filo-siriane dirette verso Afrin, secondo quanto riferisce la tv di Stato siriana. La fonte afferma che i bombardamenti si concentrano vicino al valico di Ziyara, a sud-est di Afrin, dove stanno passando i mezzi delle milizie filo-siriane. Le notizie non sono verificabili in maniera indipendente sul terreno. In precedenza, l’esercito turco e le milizie locali sue alleate avevano preso il controllo di un collegamento stradale strategico tra Afrin, che assediano da oltre un mese, e l’area di Azaz, già sotto il controllo delle forze filo-Ankara, assumendo di fatto il controllo di una nuova fascia di territorio al confine e bloccando una via di accesso diretto dei curdi dell’Ypg alla provincia frontaliera turca di Kilis. Lo riporta Anadolu.

  3. De nouvelles forces pro-régime sont entrées mercredi dans l'enclave kurde d'Afrine pour soutenir les milices locales face à l'offensive turque contre cette région du nord-ouest de la Syrie, selon l'Observatoire syrien des droits de l'homme (OSDH) et des médias officiels.

    Ce nouveau déploiement intervient au lendemain de l'arrivée de plusieurs convois des "forces populaires" à Afrine, dans le cadre d'un accord avec les Unités de protection du peuple (YPG), principale milice kurde, visant à "protéger" cette enclave, selon l'OSDH et des responsables kurdes.
