Turkey Sends Special Forces to Aleppo City to Help Al-Nusra Terrorists Fight Kurds

Kurdish sources disclosed that the Turkish army’s special forces have arrived in the city of Aleppo in Northern Syria after the al-Nusra Front and its allies asked for reinforcement troops to escape a crushing defeat from the Kurdish forces.

The Turkish special forces have now gathered near Sheikh Maqsoud district of Aleppo city, Kurdish-language news agencies reported on Saturday.

Turkey’s government troops have been dispatched to Aleppo city’s Sheikh Maqsoud to support Al-Etelaf battalion (Kataeb al-Etelaf) terrorists who are supported by Ankara and Riyadh governments, a Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) commander said this afternoon.

Al-Etelaf Battalion has carried out several attacks on Sheikh Maqsoud region over the past several months, but all of them have failed.

Also, a commander of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said two troopers from the Turkish army special forces named Dougan and Aslan have been killed in their failed attacks in the last few days.

Informed sources in Aleppo city said that the Turkish forces were members of Turkey’s intelligence apparatus (MIT) and have arrived in Aleppo city after passing Bab al-Hawa border crossing near the city of Idlib.

The Arabic service of the Russian Sputnik news agency also reported on Thursday that 100 Turkish special forces have arrived in Aleppo city.

The Arabic-language al-Ahd news website also quoted Kurdish sources as saying that the Turkish special forces are now in Aleppo city as the Kurdish forces are engaged in fierce clashes with the Takfiri terrorists.

Earlier on Saturday, the YPG foiled an attempt by the Takfiri terrorists to capture Sheikh Maqsoud district in Aleppo city.

The Al-Nusra Front and their allies tried to take control of Sheikh Maqsoud area, but they were forced to retreat by the YPG fighters.

The Takfiri terrorists sustained heavy casualties and losses in fierce clashes with the Kurdish forces.

On Friday, a 100-member group of the Turkish Army troops crossed the border from Turkey to Syria’s Northwestern province of Idlib.

The Turkish soldiers crossed into the Syrian terrorist-held province of Idlib form the Bab al-Hawa border crossing.

A report said on Wednesday that the winning back of the strategic town of al-Eis and its adjacent hill in Southern Aleppo was a crucially important step paving the way for the Syrian army to move to Idlib province.

The Syrian army and their allies managed to recapture the strategic town of al-Eis and Tal al-Eis during an intense night operation, military sources said.

Winning back of Tal al-Eis gave the pro-government forces the high ground in Southern Aleppo, which allows them fire control over the strategic Aleppo-Damascus Highway (M-5 Highway) that flows into the provincial capital.

With thousands of soldiers in the strategic towns of Al-Hadher, Al-Safira, and Al-Eis, the pro-government forces shifted their attention to the key village of Al-Zorba and the nearby ICARDA Farms that provide the government forces a gateway to regions Northeast of Idlib province.

The Syrian army and popular forces pushed their way to the outskirts of the ICARDA Farms, where they are currently engaged in a fierce battle with Al-Nusra Front, Jund Al-Aqsa, Ahrar Al-Sham Movement, Ajnad Al-Sham, and the Free Syrian Army’s “Division 13”.

EXCLUSIVE: Israel, Terrorists Closely Cooperating in Quneitra

A glance at the developments in Quneitra, Syria’s smallest province, shows the depth of cooperation between Israel and the terrorist groups to overthrow the Damascus government.

Israel occupied over 80 percent of Quneitra province in the six-day war in 1967; after this war about 1,000 UN peace-keeping troops were stationed in the Golan Heights to oversee truce between Syria and Israel.

The Syrian government was only given a small part of the province and the city of Quneitra.

After the start of the Syrian crisis in 2011, the terrorist groups backed by Israel tried several times to take control of Quneitra city, but to no avail.

In 2015, the western countries supporting the terrorist groups in Syria set up an operations room in the Jordanian capital, Amman, to hatch plots to occupy Quneitra city.

At last, the terrorist groups backed by Israel managed to enter the Quneitra province and occupy Quneitra city and a border crossing there by penetrating through the occupied Golan Heights.

The terrorists abducted several UN peace-keeping forces after taking control of Quneitra border crossing last year.

The Qatar-based Al-Jazeera television also directly covered the terrorists’ control over Quneitra province which showed the close relation between West and its Arab allies to disrupt Syria’s stability.

Meantime, international organization kept silent on Israel’s blatant violation of international law while Israel voiced its satisfaction over Syrian government troops’ withdrawal from Quneitra which clearly showed close relations between Israel and the terrorist groups.

After the fall of Quneitra, the Syrian army foiled the terrorists’ plots to take full control of the strategic town of al-Ba’ath and the Hamidiyeh military base.

However, the villages bordering the Golan Heights and Hamidiyeh military base fell as a result of Israel’s continued support for the terrorists and the terrorists established a supply route between Quneitra and Dara’a province.

The fall of Hamidiyeh military base and the villages bordering occupied Golan Heights helped the terrorists to take control of the town of al-Harreh and a strategic hill with the same name.

Meantime, the terrorists tried to break the Syrian army’s siege of Beit Jen and Sasa towns and their surrounding villages, but they failed due to the vigilance of the resistance and popular forces.

If the terrorists had managed to break the siege of Beit Jen and Sasa towns, they could have paved their way to Damascus.

The terrorists have tried to break the Syrian army’s siege of the towns controlled by the terrorists and attack Damascus by occupying al-Ba’ath and Khan Arnaba towns in Quneitra countryside, but each time they have failed to achieve their goal.

In a relevant development in late January, Charge d’affaires of the Syrian delegation to the UN Munzer Munzer denounced the deliberate inaction to compel Israel to end its occupation of the Arab territories and its flagrant violations of the international norms.

Addressing the Security Council session on “The Situation in the Middle East”, Munzer said no slight progress has been made to the effect of ending the Israeli occupation despite the hundreds of resolutions endorsed by the UN demanding Israel’s withdrawal from all the occupied Arab territories to the line of June 4, 1967.

The situation has deteriorated due to Israel’s suppressive and hostile practices against the Palestinian people and its continued settlement activities and systematic violations of the international humanitarian law, human rights laws and the international law, practices that have amounted to war crimes and crimes against humanity.

The Syrian diplomat stressed that the UN should bear its responsibilities to deal seriously with the bitter situation resulting from the similar Israeli barbaric practices imposed in the occupied Syrian Golan since 1967, in implementation of its relevant resolutions, particularly the UNSC resolution no. 497 for 1981.

Israel, Munzer said, must be pressured to stop its settlement policy, confiscation of lands, terrorism, racial discrimination and theft of the natural resources in Golan, including water, oil and gas.

He also demanded that Israel be compelled to end its arbitrary arrest policy against the Syrian people in the Golan and immediately release all the Syrian prisoners in its jails without any conditions, on top of them prisoner Sudqi al-Maqt, who was rearrested in February 2015 for his work on verifying the Israeli occupation forces’ connection with and support to the armed terrorist groups in the disengagement zone after he had already spent over 27 years in the Israeli jails.

Syria: Terrorist Groups Continue to Advance against ISIL Rivals North of Aleppo

Terrorists of Ahrar al-Sham, Free Syrian Army and al-Nusra Front continue to push back their rival group of ISIL in the Northern part of Aleppo province near the border with Turkey.

The terrorist groups, who captured the small town of al-Rai from the ISIL yesterday, continued to push the ISIL back from its positions in the villages of Wuquf, Hadabat, Mull Yaakoob and Tjaljah Sharqiyah located in the Northern and Eastern parts of al-Rai.

Soon, the ISIL may lose its final logistical gateway through Turkey – this would remove an important source of new recruits, weapons and oil export, informed sources said.

On Friday, at least two field commanders of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) were killed in intense infighting between the rival terrorist groups in the Northern part of Aleppo province near the border with Turkey.

Yaser Osman, a notorious commander of Liwa al-Hamzah group affiliated to the FSA and known as Abu Sheikh, was killed in clashes with the ISIL terrorists in al-Rai.

The clashes ended in the FSA’s control over the town.

In the meantime, one of the commanders of Sultan Murad terrorist group affiliated to the FSA was killed in another fighting with the ISIL near al-Rai.
