Abdalaziz Alhamza “RBSS”

A year since suluk’s people has been displaced.
It has been a year since Suluk’s people has been displaced from their town; Suluk is in the northern suburbs of Raqqa and has a population of 24 thousands. People have tried several times to come back but The Syrian Democratic Forces prevented them and in the last time they shot who tried to come back.
This shows us the situation in most towns controlled by SDF, where ethnic cleansing actions is taking place in an attempt to change the region’s demography which satisfies YPG which has the majority in SDF.
When ISIS was kicked out of Ein Arab, Kurdish forces prevented people of more than seventy Arab villages from coming back. The exact same thing happened in Serrien. Not only that, they have deported the people of a 100% Arab towns, such as Tell Rifaat.
It seems clear now that they want to establish a Kurdish canton without taking into consideration the indigenous people or even the Kurds themselves who know very well that they cannot live isolated from Arabs, and they realize that these stupid actions will end with hate between Arabs and Kurds.

(Syria) Campaign accuses the UN of being bias for regime and the lack of integrity, independence and impartiality.
Syria campaign –which includes 55 nongovernmental organizations-, criticized the shameful practices of The UN in Syria. The statement of the campaign was diplomatic, they pointed out that relief operations run by the UN violate humanitarian standards of the international organization and may put UN as a party in the conflict.
We have to say that The UN is not only rubbing Syrians but it is also involved in killing them. A huge part of the funds goes to salaries and expenses of UN staff which exceeds 25% of the funds. The killing of the Syrians on the other hand, is presented by giving the funds for Assad regime that sends these funds for his army.
The United Nation through its organizations is supporting health and education sectors among other services only in the regime controlled area while the other cities and towns are facing hunger and siege. All of that confirms that The UN is supporting the murderer, because aids should reach all Syrian citizens not only those who support Assad.

Syrian opposition factions control strategic and important sites in the southern suburbs of Aleppo.
Opposition forces launched a month ago a strong attack against regime forces, which enabled them to regain important areas such as Khan-Touman, Humaira, Kala’je, Al-qarrasi and large parts of Khalsa.
In the analysis, from a military point, the weakness of the regime’s army and supportive militias is obvious. The regime forces supported by Russian warplanes controlled these towns after months of fighting while it took the rebels only a few days to regain them. These battles showed a total absence of the Syrian army, as the Shiite militias was in a complete control over these towns.
Rebels advance secured Damascus – Aleppo Highway and prevented any threats over Idlib. Controlling Khalsa well lead to regain Al-Hadir and Zietan, the remarkable point is to have a new path towards the liberated parts of Aleppo which will turn the situation completely from being under regime siege into surrounding it.
The battles in southern suburbs showed the lack of coordination between regime supporters, Russian warplanes bombed Hezbollah sites and fighters from Hezbollah took revenge and killed Syrian soldiers. Moreover, the Syrian army bombed his supportive militias’ sites. Things could get worse than that n the future; the sectarian militias have lost dozens of fighters in southern suburbs battles with no real benefit.

Unsuccessful attempts of the regime to reach Raqqa.
Syrian regime is trying to advance towards Tabqa just before SDF to prove that he can fight terror. It seems like a remarkable statement, the one which SDF spokesperson Colonel Talal Sello has said in Ronahi Kurdish TV channel when he was asked of regime’s advance toward Tabqa. He said” The regime wants to liberate Raqqa and we want to fight terror and liberate our people, if the regime forces can do that so they are welcome”.
He ignored the sacrifices of more than half a million Syrian martyrs and more than ten million people who have been displaced just because the demanded freedom and dignity.
There is no doubt now that Kurdish Protection Units do not choose a third path, as they claim. The coordination between them and regime proves their bias and standing beside the tyranny.
Regime’s security sites in Qamishli are under PYD protection, regime’s army is supplying these forces with weapons in Afrin and Sheikh Maksoud. The alliance between the regime and PYD shows their bad intentions, the regime created ISIS the terrorist group to face Syrians revolution, and PYD instead of standing beside Syrian people demands, it stood besides Assad.

Assassination attempt on Hadi Al Abdullah, Khalid Essa and Ahmed Abdulkader.
ISIS tried to assassinate Ahmed Abdulkader the director of Ein AL-Madina journal in Urfa, Ahmed is in the hospital now. It is worth noted that Ahmed’s brother is Ibrahim Abdulkader one of RBSS staff, who was slaughtered by ISIS last year.
Hadi Al Abdullah and Khalid Essa were targeted by an explosive device in Al – Sha’ar neighborhood in Aleppo and they are in a Turkish hospital.
These two incidents show that terrorism and tyranny are just the same; both of them cannot stand for criticism. The regime since the beginning of the revolution has arrested and killed thousands of oppositions; this is exactly what ISIS is doing in all the cities and towns under their control. Since its first day ISIS has fought media before the rebels because they knew that media was their most powerful enemies, and this explains why they banned Internet and satellite receivers.

An alarm or is it just a new lie?
On the side lines of his visit for Norway John Kerry, US Secretary of state, showed unusual tune toward Russia, he said:” Our patience on Assad is limited”. These words are very deep, while it seems that Americans and Russians have agreed on Syria’s future, where Assad has no place in it. But Americans feel that Russians marched in a completely different trend. They found out that Russia was trying to keep Assad and his regime, and this was not what they had agreed on before.
The democratic administration does not want to leave a heavy burden for Clinton if she wins the elections and they want to keep good relations with strategic aliens in the region (Arab gulf and Turkey) which will not happen if Assad stays in Syria.
Assad knows very well that his survival is associated with the Russian-American agreement, even the Iranian role is not that important when Russia decides to give upon Assad.

Manbij is suffering from siege.
Syrian Democratic Forces has completely surrounded Manbij; this siege comes after SDF raped advance – supported by the International Coalition warplanes- towards the Manbij, and ISIS retreated to the city which is an unusual thing because ISIS used to fight fiercely against its enemies.
The duration of Manbij battle cannot be predicted, ISIS has settled in the city which has a population of 200 thousands which means that there will be several massacres if warplanes are used in this battle. If this situation continues the city will face a humanitarian crisis, because of the lack of food and medical care.
What comes after ISIS is not promising, people fear PYD as a result of their violations in several Arab villages and their attempt to separate from Syria. What confirms that is the unlimited international support for these forces while the rebels in northern suburbs of Aleppo are prevented from support despite their fierce battles with ISIS. All of that means that the international community has special agendas besides fighting terror.
