Syria Сonflict: Battle Continues, Peace Talks Stalled

The UN envoy for Syria has announced a «temporary pause» in peace talks in Geneva saying that the process will resume later this month. Speaking to reporters after a meeting with opposition leaders, Staffan de Mistura, UN special envoy for Syria, insisted «this is not the end, and it is not the failure of the talks». De Mistura said both sides were «interested in having the political process started», and that he had set a new date of February 25 for the resumption of the talks...

Turkey Poised to Invade Syria

Turkey has made public the plans to deploy some 10,700 military personnel to Syria in mid-December to fight Islamic State, the pro-government Yeni Safak daily reported. According to the newspaper’s report, Turkish forces will advance up to 46 kilometers inside the Syrian territory to create a safe zone for up to 5 million displaced people to solve the refugee crisis hitting Turkey and the EU...

The War in Rojava: Kobani’s Fall is a Prerequisite to an Invasion of Syria (II)

...The war on the ISIL has been presented by the US and its allies as a new war against a new enemy, but it is in fact a continuation of the war against Syria and all of Syria’s people, including the Syrian Kurds. For decades many of the Kurds wrongly thought that the US supports them. Instead Washington and players like Israel have geopolitically manipulated them time and time again. While Kurds have hoped for help from US military jets, even if they are illegally bombing Syria, they have instead found themselves being killed by US tanks and arms in the hands of the ISIL. Among many of the Syrian Kurds it is an open secret that the battle for Ayn Al-Arab or Kobani has really been about controlling the Syrian-Turkish border and forcing the Syrian Kurds to fall into line with the objectives of Ankara and Washington...

Kurdish Factor to Change Middle East Dynamics

A new front is emerging in Syria’s devastating civil war as Kurds and al-Qaeda-inspired Jihadist fighters fight a stiff battle for control of northern populated areas. The Democratic Union Party (PYD), a pro-government Kurdish group in Syria, has taken control of two major towns on Syria's northern border with Turkey and is definitely gaining ground... The ongoing struggle with al-Qaeda-linked fighters is achieving what many Kurdish leaders in northern Syria have long been unable to do, unifying under the PYD banner an ethnic group long divided about its future between at least 16 parties. On July 25 all the Kurdish parties gathered in Arbil, the capital of the semi-autonomous Kurdish territory in northern Iraq under President Masoud Barzani... A planned Kurdish National Conference that will gather Kurds from Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria is likely to take place between Aug. 20 and 30...

Kurds – Factor to Tilt Balance in Syrian Conflict

There are important changes affecting the complex correlation of forces in the Syrian war. Kurds had been by and large on the fence till recently. Now they are joining the fray on the side of government forces... At present the Peshmerga units are concentrating efforts on capturing the town of Ya'arubiya at the Iraqi border. It opens the way to Mosul, the traditional trade route between Syria and Iraq... The Syria army is moving in the same direction at Tel Hamis supporting the Kurdish forces and clearing the Ya'arubiya area from militants...

The Kurdish Spring in Turkey’s backyard (II)

The Kurdish surge comes at a time when Turkey’s ties with Europe and the United States are under strain. Indeed, Turkish commentators speculate that there could even be a congruence of interests between the western powers and the Syrian Kurds over the latter’s military potential to counter and weaken the extremist Al-Nusra Front affiliated to the al-Qaeda. Historically, the Kurds have acted as pawns in the US’ regional policies... Washington’s support has been extremely vital for Ankara to cope with the Kurdish problem...

The Kurdish Spring in Turkey’s backyard (I)

The blowback of Turkey’s covert operations aimed at destabilizing the Syrian regime has begun surging. The spectre of an independent Kurdish entity on its Syrian border has come to haunt Turkey. The challenge posed by the «Kurdish Spring» in northern Syria is of an existential character, but, ironically, the powers from far and near who encouraged Turkey to destabilize Syria are nowhere to be seen – incapable or unwilling to get involved in what could turn out to be a regional maelstrom... Kurds’ longstanding search for national identity will have taken a big step forward and Turkey would come under pressure to match the appreciable level of autonomy for Kurds that exists in Iraq and Syria...
