BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:40 P.M.) – Chief of the Asayish security forces in northern Syria, Ciwan Ibrahim, believes that the control of key oil infrastructures and the al-Bukamal Iraqi border crossing area in Deir Ezzor Governorate by Kurdish-led forces is more important than the battle for Raqqa city.

Ciwan Ibrahim cited the ‘Iranian project’ conspiracy theory as the pretext for his proposed reconsideration of Kurdish geopolitical priorities in Syria.

In a statement virtually identical to official line of the Israeli government, the security chief said that the “Iranian project” in Syria and the rest of the Middle East was more dangerous than the “ISIS project,” going on to claim that Iran was the mastermind behind aggravations  between the Syrian government and the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

With this understanding expressed, Ciwan Ibrahim indirectly proposed that the seizing of energy resources and strategic boundaries still currently under ISIS occupation in Syria’s Deir Ezzor province (i.e. preventing them from being secured by eastward-driving pro-government forces) as a possible solution to the supposed Iranian threat and that such an objective should be given priority over the current Raqqa engagement.

In presenting this view, the security chief basically suggested that the Kurdish-led SDF’s war against ISIS should only currently be waged insofar as preventing the restoration of Syrian sovereignty by forces aligned to the internationally-recognized government in Damascus on the assumption that Iran (one of those allies) has sinister intentions for the entire Middle East which are apparently worse than what ISIS has so far done.

The Asayish is the policing apparatus of the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) throughout YPG-held northern Syria. In August 2016, the units of Asayish attacked pro-government forces without provocation in the city of al-Hasakah, ejecting them from all but a small portion of the northern Levantine settlement.

he is a Zionist puppet, a boot licker of the ghetto state, I posted here many times that the T urds and their Biji Turdistan project is an Israhell 2.0 project, a fail safe plan from part of the ghetto state in order to delay the unavoidable, namely the strengthening of the Syria, Lebanon Iran axis of resistance who would eventually catapult the Eretz Israhell project into the sewers of history. only known Zionist trolls like Daeshbag or the complete naïve would refute this

Between Islamists, even Shias, and Jews, any normal brain will prefer to deal with the Jews… BTW, do you know that the creatot of .338 Lapua calibre is actually a Jew? ROFL. There is no Eretz Israel project, it’s your bin-Laden that understood nothing when a rabbi was asked “what is the promised land in the Hebrew Bible”. Eretz Israel is ALREADY here for centuries! Learn to read what I actually try to explain to you! Just take a map about Aramaic spoken language in history : all Lebanon, Syria and Iraq, even parts of Jordan, NW Arabia, SE Turkey… Read more »

Aramaic rose to be what is usually called a lingua franca thanks to the Neo Assyrian empire ( 911- 650 bc ) and Neo Babylonian empire ( 605-539 bc ) and was used by the Persian empire as administration language It supplanted the Hebrew spoken by the jews in Palestine around ( 721 – 509 bc ) So never was Aramaic the language of the Jews, they used a vulgar form of it and it’s called the Talmudic Aramaic or the syro-chaldaic : “The Talmudic or Syro-Chaldaic Aramaic, the common language which was formed among the Jews as a result… Read more »

It has become evident since August 2016 that the ”training” of the Assayish by foreign ”specialists” in the arts of ”war intelligence” involved more than simple weapons handling. An anti-Syrian agenda was promulgated in the leadership circle , with this man being the top example. He is obviously under foreign control . In due time he is going to stage a coup against the YPG leaders , claiming for himself the ultimate power within the Kurds. Any other moderate voice in the PYD will be silenced , so that the Kurdish militias become foreign instruments for the achievement of geopolitical… Read more »

Gimme you L/P to your CIA account : I want to read about their dirty little secrets… ROFL! Seriously, Asayish is POLICE… Good luck with the way Rojava is organised to do a coup : it’s NOT centralised! Same pattern Swiss is build, even muchh pushed formard as any one can be removed from office any time and everybody has weapons. Total hell to build a dictatorship! It makes absolutely no sense! What we have here is the chief of police advancing geopolitical considerations, which are not his job, and also considers foreign politics fact, which are not his job… Read more »

L’Iran et le Hezbollah réparent le mal que font les US, l’UE et Israël à la Syrie et le reste n’est que littérature. Vive le croissant Iran – Irak – Syrie – Liban qui met l’impérialisme israélien sur le reculoir. On vous sent un peu crispé et nerveux pour le coup !!

Never ever in history there was a state named “Palestine”, Palestine is the way Romans renamed Israel from the name of their 600 years disappeared at the time arch-enemies, the Philistines who were actually Greeks from Crete and also named “people from the sea” by Egyptians which were also their arch-enemies (same for the Hittites, BTW). Palestine or Philistine come from the Hebrew word “Peleshet” which means “INVADER”. Note you can’t even pronounce “P” in Arab, so they all say “Falestine”, in fact, this is more “Fakestine” 😀 Syrians are not even Arabs, they’re Semites! Same for Iraqis or Lebanese!… Read more »

who cares? no one denied the semitic origin of Arab people, the trouble is a land thieve is a land thieve, and your Zionist vermin is responsible for the current state of affairs, Jews , Muslims and Christians lived next to each other before the creation of the Zionist abomination, and the invasion of the British mandate for Palestine by Zionist terrorist who pioneered bombing like the King David hotel your Zionist fairy tales don’t work here

Herodotus was mentioning Palestine in his “Historiae” and the name Palestine was mentioned already in the 8th century BC. The “Israel was renamed into Palestine” argument is weak and makes no sense because it’s historically inaccurate. Also, Semites are Arabs. “Syrians are not Arabs, they are Semites” ? You are a Zionist shill. What are you doing here? A zionist supporting Syria against the Zio-Wahhabi alliance? Something is not right here.

And Herodotus mentions that in Ashkalon , a port-city in Palestine , he saw the temple of Skyborne Aphrodite , as opposed to the Seaborne Aphrodite of Cyprus. The Cypriots admitted to him , that the former was the initial form of the Goddess , and her temple in Ashkalon was the oldest. The Cypriot Greeks took over her worship from the Syropalestinians of the coast opposite. This Goddess was the ”Syrian Goddess” mentioned by Robert Graves in his book ”The White Goddess”. Her big oracle temple was located in Hierapolis (Vambyki) , today’s Manbij. This all goes to show… Read more »

The MIT kangaroo again at spinning the Barzani propaganda. Quite obviously, as the “Kurdish-led” forces are allegedly supposed to liberate Al-Bukamal (after marching more then 1,000 km on bare foot or so) it must be so that they go on straight to Baghdad after that and from there to Tehran, Kabul and Islamabad to build the great Kurdish/Ezidi empire of some maniacs dreams. So, even as I am tired of that delusional nonsense of “indirectly” interviews with a crystal ball here are some excerpts of what matters as the boundaries of the Northern Syria Federation (formerly “Rojava”) inside a UNITED… Read more »

There is something more here than meets the eye. Why would a policeman make such wildly encompassing statements about the Middle East to a Saudi website? We must see what occurs in days to come.
