Several sub-groups (in the Badiya section) within the al-Qaeda-loyal Hurras al-Din return back to HTS command. This comes after pressure to unite under one command fearing a Syrian regime attack along with a fatwa by Jihadi ideologue Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi calling for unity between HTS & HaD.
It seems like the rumors about an Assad-DFNS deal were right and it will be fullfilled step by step.
There's always been cooperation and co-ownership of oilfields between the DFNS and Damascus
Rather counters the theory that the US wanted to grab the oil...I think it wants a deal for the SDF that will stick and allow a degree of autonomy for the Kurds but they are maybe ready to accept that Syria remains intact as a nation. A sensible policy if its true
US doesn't want the oil, they want Assad from not keeping his hands on it
Yes, but this would disprove that claim as well, if it is true. In fact Assad ceded about 50% of Syrian oil to PYD in July 2012 and is well aware that there is no issue about it at all. The deal PYD formulated with Assad in mid 2017 for Rmeilan oil - before Putin-Erdogan began the SDF=ISIS campaign - had better terms than he will get with direct SAA control, since Putin's cronies get a huge cut. This was presumably the basis for the bizarre Wagner adventure in February. SDF control is certainly better, not worse, for Damascus.
Yeah but better current deals are being formulated
Not with Wagner, lol. Only Putin's buddies gain from direct control, not Assad or Damascus or Syria.
I doubt vagner will be there after A deal between SDF and damascus is made and ISIS is defeated
Just pay attention to the tag on the title and the probability of this being true becomes more clear...
heard they also give free gold nuggets to everybody.
It is extremely unlikely. If Assad could, he would just take it. He cant, because the US are there. The SDF handing over oil fields changes basically nothing about the likelihood of an Assad invasion which would still be only thwarted by western presence. So why give up their oil for no reason at all?
The SDF has been in favor of a deal to get the wells working since day one. There was already a deal in place to get Hasaka wells working in mid 2017.
If they get tangible returns for it, sure why not. It just seems more profitable to sell it to Turkey, or even Iraq, who have to deal with much less international blockade.
To Turkey you say...
Turkey isn't going to buy oil from the YPG. They only buy from Daesh ;p. Iraq also doesn't buy their oil.
They do, and always have, sell the oil to the regime.
