Haid Haid from the Atlantic Council didn't need a crystal ball to know there was going to be an attempt to take back that which was stolen by the US backed PKK/YPG
From yesterday's post: YPG/PKK to Move on Raqqa- Tribulation for Civilians to Follow
regarding Manbij "efforts to include Arabs - have been superficial and do not amount to a meaningful share in governance having no real authority, while the ultimate power of decision rests with the Qandil-trained PKK cadres.”
Haid Haid states plainly this will be the outcome of the move backed by the US to annex Raqqa
It won't be blowback- that claim is bogus, completely bogus.
Haid Haid: The official clearly hinted that the SDF plan to include both Manbij and Raqqa in the Kurdish-led federal government in northern Syria.
A recent study by The Washington Institute for Near East Policy showed that all four major tribes of Raqqa are hostile to the Kurdish YPG and skeptical of the SDF which is likely to hinder the implementation of the SDF model in Raqqa. The study mentions locals’ concerns about a Kurdish territorial expansion at the expense of Arab tribes, mandatory conscription, arbitrary arrests, and retribution for associating with ISIS.The Arabs are hostile to Kurdish tyranny- Big surprise, right? Only if you've been eating up the msm/ alt msm slop
I've covered repeatedly the ethnic cleansing by the PKK/YPG against the residents of the region"A supreme council consisting of Arab tribes from different regions of Syria has decided to start a fight against the PYD, accusing the terrorist group of destroying Arabic heritage and forcing local populations to migrate in order to shift demographics in northern Syria.
Arab tribe leaders from northern Syria, whose lands were invaded by the PKK's Syrian offshoot the Democratic Union Party (PYD), said that they will launch military resistance against the PYD to take back their occupied lands and to end oppression against the Arab population in northern Syria. The deputy head of the Syrian Tribes and Clans Supreme Council, Sheikh Rafi er-Raco Ukla, spoke yesterday to Anadolu Agency (AA) saying that the PKK and its extensions have been trying to destroy Arabic identity on Syrian soil. In March, 50 Arab tribe leaders coming from Syria's Raqqa and the al-Hasakah and Deir Ezzor regions gathered in Turkey's southeastern province of Şanlıurfa to discuss military and political cooperation between the tribes. After the meeting, the tribes agreed to form the "Army of Al-Jazeera and Euphrates Tribes" to put an end to the invasion of their lands by Daesh and the PYD. "We are representing all Arab tribes of the country [Syria]," said er-Raco, adding that an extensive congress that also includes Iraqi tribes is planned to be held in Ankara"
Can Acun, a researcher in Middle Eastern politics at the SETA Foundation for Political, Social and Economic Research told Daily Sabah that even though the Arab tribes are not likely to get quick results militarily against the PYD, supported as it is by the U.S., their initiative corresponds with the people in region, and this situation favors them in terms of long-term politics.
"I believe that democracy and demographics will prevail in the long-term, especially if we talking about the post-Daesh era," he said.The sheik also called on the international community to cease their support of the PYD and its armed wing the People's Protection Units (YPG) due to human right abuses committed against Arabs in northern Syria.
"The PYD and the PKK are terror organizations just like Daesh. They razed the homes of the Arab population in Ras al-Ain, Suluq and Tel-Abyad," he said.
El-Raco also emphasized the fact that Kurds are not the majority among city populaces such as al-Hasakah, which was invaded by the PYD. "In al-Hasakah, 65 percent of the population is Arabic. Likewise, in Raqqa, Kurds only represent 5 percent of the population. If the PYD tries to establish control over Raqqa after take it back from Daesh, we will take action. They are trying to destroy our civilization, history and culture," he said.
Israel 2.0 will turn these Arabs into the new Palestinians- Surprised that history repeats?
Turkey will be more then happy to assist these persons- Since they share a common enemy.
How well does this bode for Syria's sovereignty? For the future of a unified Syria?
The sheik also said that those Arab groups fighting in the ranks of the PYD "pursue their own interests" and "only represent themselves, not Arab society."
The PYD terrorist organization's forced migration of Arabs and Turkmens, as well as arbitrary arrests targeting critical voices and the recruitment of child soldiers, have been covered by international human rights groups, including Human Rights Watch (HRW), Amnesty International and Kurdish Watch.
The PYD's acts of oppression are not confined to Arab and Turkmen populations but also target rival political voices with retaliation being taken in the form of arson, arrests and kidnappings and has been voiced as concern by Kurds in northern Syria. The Kurdish National Council (KNC) in Syria has been a critical voice against arrests and abductions carried out by the PYD.
