    Russia to set up military base in Kurdish-controlled area in northern Syria [+ photos]

    DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6:50 P.M.) – Russian military will set up a new base in the Kurdish-held district of Afrin in northern Syria as per an agreement held earlier with People’s Protection Units (YPG)

    A source from the YPG – who spoke on the condition of anonymity – said an agreement was concluded last yesterday between the Kurdish forces and Russian military to establish a base in the village of Kafr Jannah.

    The base in intended to protect the district of Afrin, added the same source without mentioning further details.

    Local activists confirmed that a Russian military convoy – comprising of 2 tanks, 4 armored vehicles, a pickup truck and a van – has entered the city of Afrin.

    Last week, Russian military vehicles carrying Russian and Syrian Army officers were seen roaming the city of Afrin.

    The agreement comes days after the Kurdish forces agreed on handing over several villages to the west of Manbij to the Syrian government forces.

    Russia denies reports it plans to establish military base in Kurdish-controlled region of Syria

    “There are no plans to establish new Russian bases on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic,” said a statement from the Russian Defense Ministry.

    Instead, Moscow says it will use the location to monitor ceasefire compliance.

    “In accordance with the Russian-Turkish agreement signed on December 30, 2016, the Russian Center of Reconciliation carries out round-the-clock ceasefire monitoring. To prevent the violation of the ceasefire, one of the branches of the Center has been set up near Afrin, in a spot bordering the territory held by the Kurdish militias, and that under the command of the Turkish-controlled Free Syrian Army.”

    Russians are playing it dirty like the Yankees. Turkey should step up her effort to produce weapons of every kind locally. Turkey is surrounded by hyenas so she has to be very careful and patient. Forget everything else for the time being and just focus on indigenous production of weapons in mass scale. If Turkey succeeds in this she'll get plenty of opportunity in future to pay back in the same way.
