Syrian Army Enters Tabka-Controlled Kurds, Media Reported

The Syrian army entered the city of Tabka in the province of Raqqa, which was previously controlled by the Kurds, and moves further north, the Lebanese television station al-Mayadeen reports. There have not yet been official statements from Damascus about this.

 


In addition, Syria’s state television reports that Assad’s army also reached Tell Tamr in the northwestern province of Hasek.

 

On October 9, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan announced the launch of Operation Source of Peace in northern Syria against the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) banned in Turkey.

This was followed by a ground attack. On Saturday, Ankara reported that the Turkish military and the Syrian armed opposition took control of Ras al-Ain, and Anadolu agency spread information about the seizure of Tell Abyad.

On Sunday, Damascus decided to deploy an army on the entire border with Turkey to help the Kurds. Government forces have already begun the transfer of forces to the north of the country.

Earlier, the Kurds supported Washington, but after the start of the Turkish operation, they announced the withdrawal of troops. The Pentagon emphasized that they “did not sign up” to fight with Ankara in order to protect the Kurds. In the PKK, this was perceived as a violation of the agreements.
