YPG reaches militery agreement with Syrian rejime

Date: 2018/02/19 – 1:12 PM – WAAR MEDIA – WAAR-DUHO:Forces loyal to the regime are amassing near Afrin on Monday.A build-up of pro-regime forces to the east of Afrin was broadcast by Al Mayadeen TV.The forces were shown on the road between Aleppo and Afrin cities.“Popular forces will arrive in Afrin in the next few hours to support the steadfastness of its people in confronting the aggression which Turkish regime forces have launched on the region,” state news agency SANA reported, citing its correspondent in Aleppo.

A Kurdish politician from Syria told Rudaw on Sunday that Syrian Arab Army Forces would come to Afrin on Monday.“The agreement is to protect borders,” explained Sheikho Bilo, an official from the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Unity Party (PYDKS), adding that “the agreement is only militarily.”

Afrin has been controlled by the mostly-Kurdish YPG forces, who have withstood a month-long assault at the hands of the Turkish military and their ‘Free Syrian Army’ proxies, who are opposed to the regime of Bashar al-Assad.

Kurdish and pro-regime forces have largely avoided direct and large-scale confrontations in the seven-year conflict.  More via
