Syrian tribes pledge support for Turkey, vow to liberate PKK/PYD-occupied regions
The Supreme Council of Syrian Tribes and Clans has vowed to fight against terror organizations and liberate regions under the terrorist Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK)’s Syrian affiliate, the PYD, pledging Arab tribes’ support for Turkey in any upcoming operation inside the country. Speaking exclusively to Yeni Şafak, the head of Syria’s Supreme Tribal Council and leader of the Shuayitat tribe Rafea Oqla al-Rajw said that the union formed during the group’s last meeting in Turkey’s Şanlıurfa back in March included 60 clans and 20 tribes, encompassing over 80 percent of those found in Syria. Elected as head of the council at a meeting that took place during Dec. 10 -13 last year and attended by 354 tribal leaders, al-Rajw noted that the symposium was also attended by tribal heads from Saudi Arabia and Qatar, and it aimed at protecting Syria’s territorial integrity and fighting against all terror organizations, including the PKK/PYD.US to recognize terrorist PKK ‘state’ in SyriaCountry will not be abandoned to occupying forces“The PKK/PYD are our most dangerous enemy. We will not abandon our country to any occupying forces such as the PKK/PYD, Daesh, Russia and the regime and its affiliates, the U.S. or Iranian militias. Even if the PKK says it fights against Daesh, they’re two terror organizations that are one and the same,” said al-Rajw. Al-Rajw pointed that former regime official General Sukkar al-Moussa al-Hayyal, who was one of Daesh’s emirs, currently lives in a palace in PKK-occupied regions, pointing that PKK terrorists seized the deeds, IDs and properties of those fleeing Syria.“We will regain control over our lands even if we have to fight with forks and spoons. In order to begin work on restoring the infrastructure in these areas, we first have to eradicate the PYD occupation,” stressed al-Rajw.The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the European Union and the United States. The PKK has been conducting armed violence in the southeastern part of Turkey since 1984. More than 40,000 people, mostly civilians, have been killed in the three-decade long conflict.U.S. behind terror organizations“We set off as tribes in coordination with Turkey. However, we don’t receive funding from Turkey, we get that from the tribes in Kuwait and Qatar. Our blood and our path is the same as Turkey’s. We can only play a role with Turkey by our side,” said al-Rajw. “We definitely have no contact or links on this issue with either the U.S. or the West. This is a completely false accusation. We’re against the American project. They’re behind terrorism. They summoned their gangs and terrorists from Mount Qandil. The U.S. is actually the party that creates and spreads terror,” continued al-Rajw. “We know very well that Europe is just like the U.S., they don’t look out for the Syrian people’s interests. The only fraternal and friendly country who has Syrians’ best interest is Turkey,” al-Rajw stressed.Turkish FM warns against giving free hand to terroristsUS attempts to incite Syria’s Arab tribes against Turkish ArmyWe stand united with Turkey“We back all operations carried out by Turkey in Syria. We stand united with Turkey. We’ll even be at the forefront so that no harm will come to Turkey. We spoke before with the tribes located in Idlib and they expressed their desire for Turkey to intervene, noting that they are ready to put an end together to the PKK and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham terror, pledging all kinds of support. We also supported the Idlib and Euphrates Shield operations. Today there are a few problems in the Euphrates Shield regions. Some groups have different agendas,” said al-Rajw in reference to any possible cross-border operation by Turkey. “If it weren’t for Turkey, there wouldn’t be such a region and people wouldn’t have been able to come back. We know that we’re forever indebted to the Turkish people and we want to do whatever is necessary in this regard,” concluded al-Rajw.In the wide-ranging Euphrates Shield Operation launched in August 2016, the Free Syrian Army -- with the support of the Turkish army -- had cleared 2,000 square kilometers (772 square miles) of land along the Turkish-Syrian border of terrorist elements.Ankara summons US charge d’affaires over Syria issueUS backs terrorist PKK/PYD's 'regular army' projectUS to build airport for PKK terrorists in Syria’s Raqqa
US attempts to incite Syria’s Arab tribes against Turkish Army
The U.S. is attempting to incite Syria’s Arab tribes in Euphrates Shield areas against the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) in a bid to create an anti-Turkey bloc through efforts by American and European representatives who are in contact tribal leaders in the region. The bloc is being established through an EU project based in the Hama city of Sawran, which was cleared of Daesh by the Turkish Army, and carried out under the pretext of establishing ‘dialogue between tribes and local formations.’ Monitoring tribal leaders closelyWestern organizations are closely monitoring tribal leaders in the regions cleared of Daesh and Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) terrorists by the TAF and Free Syrian Army partnership, under the cover of building infrastructure in the area. American and European representatives have met with several prominent names in Turkey’s Şanlıurfa, Kilis and Gaziantep and got in touch with tribal leaders inside Syria through intermediaries. Based in the Hama town of Sawran and led by the U.S., efforts are underway to incite the largest tribes across Syria, such as the Baggara, Joumeili, Baddoush, Ageydat and Jeiss, who have millions among their members.Euphrates Shield targetedU.S. effort to incite the tribes are supported by former opposition coalition leader Ahmad Jarba through operations carried out in Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.The U.S.-sponsored project aims to portray Turkey as an ‘occupying force’ to tribal leaders through agents in areas outside of Sawran, such as Kafra and Dabiq, where operations are being actively carried out.The three regions targeted by the U.S. project are unique in that they all host a Turkish military base. The U.S. has promised tribal leaders to supply them with weapons to ‘rescue their regions from the TAF’ in return for reaching out to sufficient numbers of their followers.US establishes new terror organization in SyriaUS attempts to encircle Turkey by increasing troop numbers in the regionUS sends anti-tank TOW missiles to PKK terrorists in Afrin

US backs terrorist PKK/PYD's 'regular army' project
The PKK/PYD terrorist organization is allegedly getting prepared to establish a regular army, local sources told Anadolu Agency.The so-called "border guards", trained by the U.S. through the Pentagon and the CIA, have formed what they call "The North Army", said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to security concerns.According to the sources, this new structure is to be composed mainly of the terrorist PKK/PYD, which is accused of having invaded Syrian territory on the pretext of fighting Daesh.Turkey has repeatedly said it would not tolerate such terror organizations to form a corridor in northern Syria along Turkey’s borders.The latest news comes after the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) Commander Gen. Joseph Votel announced on Dec. 22, 2017 that they would establish border forces in Syria, which he said would help prevent resurgence of Daesh.US to build airport for PKK terrorists in Syria’s RaqqaEight PKK suspects arrested in southern TurkeyAlso previously, the U.S. said they would continue to support the PKK/PYD in Syria's eastern Deir ez-Zor province, home to some of the country's most productive oilfields.A group of around 400 terrorists were reportedly trained near eastern Aleppo's Tishrin Dam on the Euphrates River and in southern Hasakah province.They were provided with both theoretical and technical information as well as military training and high-tech equipment.These trainings are seen as the last step of creating a regular army from the terror groups, the so-called "The North Army".The army is expected to be deployed first in Kobani, or Ayn al-Arab, Tel Abyad, Ras al-Ayn, and al-Malikiyah -- all in Aleppo province and near Turkish border.Despite Turkey’s objections, the U.S. has continuously provided the PKK/PYD terror groups with arms, calling it an ally in the fight against Daesh, but ignoring its internationally recognized status as a terrorist group.The PKK/PYD is currently occupying more than a fourth of Syrian territory. The expansion strategy of the organization has grown as it advanced its area of dominance, starting from the Iraqi border in eastern Syria, then west through the Turkish borderline.Turkey warned the U.S. of the goals of the organization, however, the U.S. government says the developments are only linked to the fight against Daesh.US attempts to incite Syria’s Arab tribes against Turkish ArmyTurkish jets hit PKK targets in northern Iraq
