How is it that so many countries are openly fighting wars and building bases in Syria AGAINST the wishes of the Syrian government?
MANBIJ, Syria – French troops are currently deploying five military bases in northern Syria in the area controlled by the forces of Washington-backed and Kurdish-led SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces) as reported by Turkish state news agency Anadolu.
According to Turkish media, more than 70 members of the French Special Forces are at the Lafarge cement factory near Mistanur Hill and Harab-Isk.
In fact, they say that even 30 executives are working from Raqqa. The 1st Marine Parachutist Constitution and the 10th Parachutist Unit are also operating in the area.
Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) are the core of the SDF. Ankara describes YPG as a terrorist group and as the Syrian arm of the Turkey-based Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).
Turkey recently launched a large-scale military operation against the YPG in the north of Syria and captured the YPG-held Afrin region.
