"According to the plot of the US, these forces should assist in the implementation of their plan on the setup of the so-called safe of buffer territories, which should cut Syria off from its neighbors," he elaborated.
The expert, however, said that he hopes that with the help of Russia and Iran, the Syrian Army will be able to block these efforts.
Meanwhile, he said, the SDF have been coordinating their assault on the Syrian city of Raqqa with both the US and Daesh.
The SDF is mostly comprised of the Kurdish YPG militia which unanimously declared the “federalization” of what they call “Rojava”, or so-called Western Kurdistan, back in March 2016.
The leaders of the SDF announced that they’ll try to annex the majority-Arab city of Raqqa if they manage to liberate it.
Technically, the Kurds, backed by the US and allies, and Damascus, backed by Russia and Iran, aren’t at war with one another. On several occasions, the official Syrian government forces and the Kurdish fighters cooperated. However, the two sides' hold contradictory visions for the country's future, which could become an issue.
The liberation of Raqqa is so important for Syria’s future because whichever force frees the city will be in a stronger position to determine post-war political events in northeastern Syria, or in other words, either making the Kurds’ “federation” a fait accompli or not, which is why the SDF and the Syrian Arab Army had been racing towards Daesh’s self-styled “capital.”
