YPG/PKK is preparing for a possible operation by the Turkish Armed Forces.

The terrorist organization PKK has created tunnel networks at many points in the Ayn El Arab (Kobani) line for possible Turkish Armed Forces operations. The tunnel work on Mishtenur Hill, located in the south of the city is seen on the satellite images. They reinforce the 6 km long tunnel network with concrete blocks against artillery fire and air operations.

One of the targets of the last series of airstrikes was the Mishtenur Hill. The location carries a great importance for the YPG/PKK terrorist organization.

I'm aware of that, but it's ridiculous if Russia actually allows such to move forward, once the Americans are completely out of NES, I could see Assad demanding full control of the areas now currently under the YPG and abandonment of their Kurdish state aspirations, in turn, the Kurds will likely either:

1. Reject and fight (and get annihilated)
2. cower down and accept full Damascus sovereignty

My pick is option 1, because there's no way they just accepted the end of their aspirations to create Rojava after many years of fighting, cheating and forcing such ideas.
I am quoting you here so we don't derail the other thread.

Not long ago I talked in another thread about the current structure of PKK and their relationship with Iran.

If I need to explain it in a simple way, there are two branches within PKK. One is the traditionalist for which priority one is the armed struggle and the other is the reformist branch that wants to concentrate harder on the political part of things.

Currently PKK's main branch is led by a representative of the traditionalists and the traditionalists have a very deep relationship with Iran. This is one of the main reasons why the US is trying to limit the influence of the Iraqi branch of PKK and Syrianize the organization. The leadership of YPG in Syria represented by Mazlum Kobani is from the US supported reformist branch.

If a possible US withdrawal happens I expect that the YPG will be torn into two. The traditionalists will not have a problem with a further integration of the organization into the Iranian militia system. In a matter of fact there are many points at which YPG/HRE are deployed together with Iranian militias, but I am not so sure about the reformists. I suspect that big part may not accept Assad/Russian/Iranian domination over Rojava and may decide to start a rebellion against them possibly under Mazlum Kobani's leadership and get annihilated as you suggested.

I talked about the issue of Iranian domination of the region and the consequences for Turkiye both here and also in the thread regarding the Turkish military operations in the north of Iraq. If you are interested and decide to dig more you can check our discussions from a couple of days before.

The situation in Gaza is directly impacting the processes and dynamics of the north of Iraq and Syria which are of critical and even existential importance for Turkiye.

This can't happend fast enough imo. But it would have been good to have a good news network to spread news more and wider. Especially if YPG has signed an agreement with Russia as the tweet mentioned.

PKK terrorists are fired with artillery at Afrin and Azez. The surroundings of Turkish Armed Forces bases in the region were also targeted. Terrorists are also trying to infiltrate the village of Kimar in the south of Afrin, and SNA forces responded.

At least 7 terrorists were killed in our retaliation and 1 was captured alive.

Did we locate and obliterate HQ compound responsible for these actions ?

Mmm, nah, I don't think so. Metin Temel pasa was going to do it, but... You know the story.

The terrorists were killed in our area so their bodies and weapons were collected.

I really do hope they kill each other off.

Iranian backed militias are a threat to Turkish soldiers while Iranian backed militias targeting US soldiers means outrage and a withdrawal which means the USA can no longer be safe in Syria and Iraq protecting the pkk/ypg.

Let them fight.
