BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – The US-backed Syrian Democratic Council has refused to participate in the municipal elections taking place across Syria.

The Syrian Democratic Council said it would not participate in an election under the rule of the Arab nationalist Ba’ath Party.

“The regime wants us to remain under its rule and under the rule of the Baath,” the spokesperson for the Syrian Democratic Council, Ibrahim Ibrahim, said on Sunday.

Prior to election day, several Syrian candidates in the northwestern province of Al-Hasakah were detained by the Kurdish-led Asayish forces, causing outrage among many locals.

While Damascus and the SDC are currently engaged in peace talks, both sides have yet to reach any agreement on the fate of the areas controlled by the latter.

Treasonous Kurds

Actually it’s the Syrian state that abandoned them since it’s the DUTY of any state to evacuate its under threat population into safe areas…
SAA simply flee combats and let them behind…
It’s one of the main differences between a state and a regime :
A state has duties onto its citizens and serves them… In a regime, the population has to serve the regime while the regime’s #1 concern is its own survival… End enrichment of its elites too 🙂

The Kurds in Hasakah were part of the Syrian state until they betrayed the Syrian state and invited the US/Zio/Nazi tyranny to invade Syria and together they inavaded Arab land which was never theirs including al-Raqqa. The foreign Kurds in Syria are ungrateful for the refuge and sanctuary given to them by the Syrian government and have betrayed their Syrian saviours from Turkish oppression by becoming prostitutes of the US tyranny and stealing Syrian Arab sovereign land.

Right… How dare they set up a genuine Syrian democracy beyond the control of the unelected sectarian dictator and war criminal Assad?

Bashar is not sectarian, he’s secular. Syria has freedom of religion… I wouldn’t say the same with some of his allies who have grim projects at this level, so is it for most of Bashar’s foes. As a war criminal, well, he’s not worst than what of some of our NATO allies, especially the most powerful one, have done. He’s not an angel for sure but we’re poorly placed to lecture him, especially with the mess we did in Libya or Yugo and moreover, the number of coups our powerful ally did, the last one being removing democratically elected Yanukovich… Read more »

Except that SAA will endure too much troubles in Idlib to still be able to fück with the Kurds later… Especially since Erdolf is arming Idlib’s rebels to the teeth… And I doubt SyAAF beng able to gain air superiority while facing Rafale, F-22, Typhoon, F-15, etc… In fact, Bashar commits an error at being thickheaded… What Kurds want is not abusive, look, Switzerland and Germany are doing really great at being federal countries… And keepng useless Iranians and their proxies make matters more complicated, moreover, they’re counterproductive. Bashar could easily secure CJTF/OIR air support and Kurdish help to cleanse… Read more »

Kurds think by taking guns in their hand and help from US Zionist they will do whatever they want in Syria . then they are the biggest traitor not only in Syria also in Iraq iran and turkey. but they are forgetting US stays far Away and they are surrounded by neighbours with not sea border or Air route if this 4 country put no fly zone. Kurds should understand without neigbours their people will suffer more. then US thugs.

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
You have really poor understanding of what’s going on…
Newt step will be Russia backing the Kurds at creating a Kurdish buffer zone between Iran and Turkey…
If you think Putin will allow a Rafidah regime+Muslim Broterhood Qatar-Iran-Turkey=>EU gas pipeline, you’re totally deluded!
Nonetheless it’d drive Russia into bankruptcy but they’d use the money to fund global jihad and end blackmailing everybody with nukes…
Won’t be tolerated.

It’s complete nonsense of course. The DFNS is a direct democracy, and not a party political system – political parties play no part in local elections. Added to which, elections have already been held, months ago. None of it has anything to do with the Assad Baathist dictatorship.

Exact! Rojava’s constitution is patterned on the Swiss one.

Se ve con evidencia que EEUU domina la voluntad de los caudillos adoctrinados para impedir un arreglo político en Siria, y buscan desmembrar el territorio. La unidad de toda Siria es necesaria para la paz de toda la región.
