Syria’s Assad to deploy troops to help Kurdish fighters battling Turkish forces in Afrin

''The conflict in Syria may escalate significantly after the Assad regime declared that it will send troops to help Kurdish fighters defending the town of Afrin against Turkish forces.

The deployment, which may also include Iranian-controlled militiamen, will take place, said Damascus, after an agreement was reached with the People’s Protection Units (YPG) group, which has set up a Kurdish enclave across the Turkish border.

“Popular forces will arrive in Afrin within a few hours to support its people’s stand against the Turkish regime’s attack on the area and its people,” announced Sana, the Syrian state news agency. The forces, continued Sana, will position themselves at the frontier – a move that opens up the possibility of direct clashes with the Turks and allied Syrian Arab militias. ''

I'm getting two things outta this article...

One, that all the major protagonists are taking turns at being Turkey's bane and Two, that with so many protagonists gathered in one insignificant little ****ty desert, the chances of WW3 are looking more likely.

Right move, I believe. It's about time Syria starts pushing back foreign invaders. They need to protect their airspace and borders against further agression. In this case, the Kurds are still part of the Syrian state and should receive assistance. Erdogan might not like it though.

Turks have no problem with Damascus providing security but they do not want independent Kurdish militias on their border. Official statements from Turkish spokespersons confirms this.

Assad, on the other hand, offered Kurds to be mobilized and incorporated in SAA ( or more likely in NDF ) or to leave their weapons and became civilians. ( edit ) It seems that Kurds have accepted it because Damascus would not intervene otherwise.

Negotiations ( regarding whole Kurdish held areas in Syria ) are lasting for months and Turkish offensive fastened things.

We shall see, personally i suspect this to be some deal between Russia, Iran and Turkey, deal with which Syria will be free from western backed separatists very soon. Both Syria and Turkey will profit maybe not only in security aspect, and Russia, well... They have their reasons.

Unlike the Kurds in Iraq, Syrian Kurds don't seek to form an independant country.
