Abu Arraj: Turkey between a rock, a hard place

Deputy Commander-in-Chief of Jaish al-Thewar(al-Thewar Army), Ahmad al-Sultan, known as Abu Arraj described the Turkish position as "difficult and shameful" in Syria. Turkey is now between a rock and a hard place regarding the Russian S-400 system and the US F-35 fighters.

The city of Idlib is in turmoil and fighting among the mercenaries present in it. It is in a new incubation stage of new terrorism under national names, accompanied by bombing by the Syrian regime and Russia, despite the presence of Turkish observation posts deployed in Idlib. All the above remain in agreements and meetings under the pretext of reducing escalation.

In order to highlight the situation in Idlib and its countryside in the light of international and regional conflicts, our agency (ANHA) conducted an interview with the Deputy Commander-in-Chief of Jaish al-Thewar, Ahmad al-Sultan (Abu Arraj), who noted at the beginning of his speech that Turkey is in an unenviable position, it is between  a rock and hard place regarding the Russian S-400 system and the American F-35 fighter jets.

He pointed out that if Turkey got the Russian "S-400" system, it will produce conflicts between the superpowers, and it will not be different if it gets the US F-35 fighters, and Abu Arraj said that Turkey likely will not get both deals.

He pointed out that Idlib is the concern of the whole world, and touched on the agreements between Russia and Turkey, and pointed out that the agreements failed, and that the position of Turkey is difficult and shameful in light of what is witnessed by Idlib, " Idlib's southern countryside destroyed by aircraft and the Syrian regime And the modern weapons that Russia is testing in that region. "

Abu Arraj expressed his concern about the fate of the southern countryside of Idlib, south-east, south-west and northern Hama. He pointed out that most of the people of these areas have been displaced to different areas, some of them to the north of Syria, which they consider less dangerous, Idlib cannot be a safe area.

He warned of a humanitarian disaster may occur in the city of Idlib if attacked by the Syrian regime and he estimated the population in Idlib by more than one million people.

The solution is to return to Geneva 1

Speaking about the first and subsequent Astana, Abu Arraj stressed that its results reflected negatively on the Syrian people, and denied the existence of any decision resulting from Astana is in the interest of the Syrian people and pointed out that the next Astana will not be different, and could be more negative. He called for a return to international resolution 2254, which is the solution to the Syrian people in creating security and stability.

He stressed that the presence of the Turkish control points deployed in Idlib is limited to prevent the factions in Idlib from confronting the regime, claiming to reduce the escalation.

He explained the attempt by Turkey to merge the mercenaries of Jabhat al-Nusra with the mercenaries of the so-called National Army, is to find a structure that could thwart SDF and stressed that SDF after the elimination of Daesh mercenaries are stronger than before.

Abu Arraj stressed that all these failed attempts would increase SDF's determination to follow the path towards progress and to liberate more areas. Abu Arraj talked about the city of Afrin and said that it is the destination of SDF in the future.

Abu Arraj renewed his pledge to the martyrs "to walk on their approach until the liberation of the city of Afrin from the Turkish occupation and to go to the province of Idlib," and stressed that Idlib appeals to SDF and the entire world to save its people.

Abu Arraj addressed his speech to the General Command of the Syrian Democratic Forces asking them to move towards embracing and opening doors "to the people of the Idlib to join the ranks of the SDF to achieve cooperation in extending security in every inch of Syria and thwarting all the schemes of the guarantor states which are providing everything negative for the Syrian people. "

The United Nations Security Council Resolution 2254, adopted at its 7588th meeting on 18 December 2015, this resolution concerns the cease-fire in Syria and a political settlement and demands an immediate cease-fire against any civilian targets.

It also calls on the member states of the Council to support the ceasefire and calls on the United Nations to bring together the parties to the conflict and to open formal negotiations. The resolution excluded both Daesh mercenaries, and Jabhat al-Nusra from the cease-fire, and approved free and fair elections under the auspices of the United Nations led by Syria.
