Aleppo, SMART

Loyalist forces prepared popular militias to enter Afrin,43 kilometers north of Aleppo, Northern Syria, as a part of an agreement with the Kurdish Democratic Union Party(PYD).

Formal loyalist media outlets said that what they called "popular militias" would arrive in Afrin within the upcoming hours, adding that those militias are meant to boost Afrin’s residents’ resistance against the Turkish aggression.

The media outlets added that loyalist forces would not enter Afrin to avoid confrontation with the Turkish Army, but instead would send “popular militias” from Nubul and al -Zahraa, 15 kilometers from Afrin, as well as al-Safira District.

On Sunday, Badran Jia Kurd, the consultant of the Kurdish Self Autonomous Administration in Northern Syria, revealed that the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) held an agreement with loyalist forces about SDF- controlled Afrin. Jia Kurd expressed concerns about the probability of agreement's collapse.

Earlier, the Kurdish Autonomy in Afrin called upon the Syrian government to intervene to stop the Turkish attacks on the area.The Syrian government threatened to target the Turkish warplanes in case Turkey decided to launch a military campaign in the area.

On Dec.20, 2017, factions of the Free Syrian Army(FSA) supported by Turkish Army launched the first ground attack as a part of the Olive Branch Battle in Afrin, which controlled by SDF. The FSA factions seized strategic villages and hills amidst constant battles.
