Syria, nervousness is growing among pro-Turkey militias

Nervousness is growing among pro-Turkish militias in Syria. The cause is the uncertainty linked to the new Ankara offensive in Kurdistan. The factions fear being squeezed between the TAF and the SDF, who also have the SAA on their side

The uncertainty on the Turkey’s new offensive in Syria, which should take on similar characteristics to Operation Peace Spring, is upsetting the pro-Ankara militias. In recent days, internal clashes between factions have been increasing throughout the quadrant: from Aleppo to Idlib, passing through Afrin. The latest episode was recorded on July 7 and involved the “Sultan Murad”, “Liwaa Al-Shamal” Division and the Ninth Division. Previously, there was a shooting between “Al-Jabha Al-Shamiyyah” and another group. The militiamen were sent to the front line to attack the Kurds in order to test their defenses and to press them, without however receiving new resources, weapons or equipment. As a result, the pro-Turkey factions fear being squeezed between the TAF and the SDF, to which the Syrian army (SAA) has also joined as an ally.
