The Syrian Elite Forces will be restructured under a deal and sponsored by Turkey, France, and USA to maintain security over the border region. The SEF is mostly Syrian Arab group, which is why Turkey is ok with it.
At least thats the allegations as of recently.

Exclusive - The General Commander of the Syrian Elite Forces tells HJN: the SEF will be restructured under a French/U.S./Turkish sponsorship, the SEF will be an agreed alternative forces to deploy on the borders NE of Syria.

I guess we just move on to the next letter of the alphabet?

Video of what appears to be US Army Helicopter patrols. Are those AH-64's or AH-60's ?? Its hard to tell, looks more like Apache than a Hawk.

this chapter of WW3

Glad this turned out to be not much of a world war.

As far back as the 1990's, the Congo collapsed into a series of wars that would rival any other in terms of their death toll since WWII, and this was directly following the French-led Rwandan Genocide resulting in 1 million dead Tutsis at the hands of the Hutu regime in Rwanda, and directly preceding and running concurrent to the Yugoslav Wars, the British–American invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq in 2001 and 2003 respectively, and the current crises involving ISIL, Syria, Ukraine, and others which have been directly related to these conflicts. It should also be pointed out that France and China have led the international resistance against NATO and America, particularly since 2003. All-in-all, an estimate 8-million-something have died if one tallies up all of these interrelated conflicts.

It should also be noted that even George W. Bush had no choice but to acknowledge his conflict was a Global War on Terror.


A Third World War on Terror.

But it is in all actuality a result of Bush's imperialist foreign policy.

It is reassuring to know that we will continue to support our staunch friends fighting terrorism from the lands of the Middle East, of which who the Kurds are one of the most effective and professional.

The President will make sure any withdrawal from Syria will be done in a fashion to ensure:

1) ISIS is permanently destroyed.

2) Iran doesn’t fill in the back end, and

3) our Kurdish allies are protected.

Somebody is delivering something . Or I guess they could also be picking up.

Looks like a truck broke down. Or they could simply be delivering it to a new post fresh?

The Kurdish National Congress has established a committee to communicate with all the Kurdish parties in Rojava with the aim of creating a uniting big alliance and developing a Kurdish strategy to confront Kurdish and self-governing dangers of northern and eastern Syria.

International Forces continue to maintain established ties with our friendly forces in Kobane.

There are too many flags flying within firing range by rival multinational modern forces in the Manbij area. I hope 2019 sees some reason prevail, but if it all blows up to # at least we will see it happen right here.

This report from 24 news has an in depth analysis, debate, and updates on the military and political situation.

Coalition Troops check in at a Syrian Army checkpoint in the area. They are adamant about not taking pictures.

The Russian Military Police are now patrolling neighborhoods and villages within minutes from US forces location west of Manbij.

Also, the YPG shot down a Turkish commercial hobby drone trying to monitor across the border. I guess they use these because they are cheap, somewhat discreet, and offer fairly high quality resolution. Footage was recovered from the memory card which shows they launched from a nearby base. They all posed for the departing flight apparently.

as has already been covered in these two threads, we lost 4 of our brothers yesterday in a suicide car bomb attack inside of Manbij. ISIS claims responsibility and Southfront found the background on the attacker as well. I just wanted to add that Turkey is the only actor claiming there is still ISIS along the border zone. They always point to the Kurds in the north and call them ISIS. Many of the interviews on the local media such as Orient News and Step News with the residents on the ground are always complaining that ISIS always came from the direction of Turkey, it continues, they are terrible and the Turks are giving them the fullest support.

I still see comparison photos as I read updates on twitter of fighters and commanders wearing ISIS flags and colors, and then recently have been spotted in the FSA ranks waving new flags and colors. I will start adding those the moment I see the next one.

As far as I am concerned Erdogan was behind this attack through his countries intelligence apparatus.
