EZEKIEL 39: Turkey And Russia Join Forces To Divide Up Northern Syria Between Themselves As Putin And Erdogan Become New Middle East Power Players

The deal came as the five-day pause in fighting brokered by the United States expired — but Turkey now says the deal means hostilities need not resume. The Russia-Turkey 10-point plan was succinct but will have wide-reaching ramifications for the region, as well as those embroiled in this latest Syrian drama. Syrian Kurds, America’s erstwhile allies, were left waiting to hear the news of their fate from the meeting. The deal means that from midday Wednesday, Kurdish fighters will have just over six days to withdraw to no more than 20 miles from almost the entire northeastern border.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan spent hours poring over maps of Syria in the Black Sea resort of Sochi on Tuesday, carving up Syrian territory into different geopolitical spheres of influence.

After President Trump so quickly pulled out troops from Northern Syria, Turkey jumped in faster than a squirrel in a bounce house filled with nuts. Within days, Turkey had launched a blistering campaign of attack that freed ISIS and decimated our former and never again allies the Kurd. When the smoke cleared from all that, what do we see but a grinning Erdogan and Putin putting their signatures on a deal giving Turkey and Russia joint control over Northern Syria. As Forrest Gump would say, it happened ‘just like that’. Indeed.

“And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:” Ezekiel 39:2 (KJV)

Of course, we are only interested in this because of the incredible ramifications it will have for Israel as they attempt to keep defending the Golan Heights that Trump said America recognized Israeli sovereignty over. Not any more. That proclamation has now become null and void because the United States is no longer there to enforce it. Now Russia and Turkey have both moved a giant step closer to their real target in the Middle East, Jerusalem!

This is how Putin and Erdogan have redrawn northeastern Syria

FROM NBC NEWS: The pair agreed to a deal designed to keep Kurdish forces away from the Syria-Turkey border, enforced by joint Russian and Turkish patrols starting next week. U.S. troops are continuing their journey out of Syria, headed for western Iraq.

The deal came as the five-day pause in fighting brokered by the United States expired — but Turkey now says the deal means hostilities need not resume. The Russia-Turkey 10-point plan was succinct but will have wide-reaching ramifications for the region, as well as those embroiled in this latest Syrian drama.

Syrian Kurds, America’s erstwhile allies, were left waiting to hear the news of their fate from the meeting. The deal means that from midday Wednesday, Kurdish fighters will have just over six days to withdraw to no more than 20 miles from almost the entire northeastern border.

Ankara will keep sole control of the central section of the border, between the Syrian border towns of Tal Abyad and Ras al-Ayn, the area from which Kurdish fighters were forced to withdraw over the past five days under the U.S.-Turkey deal.

When the new deadline elapses Oct. 29, joint Russian-Turkish troops will patrol a 6-mile-deep area to the west and east of the section of the border captured by Turkey during its invasion.

It’s another blow for Syrian Kurds who want greater self-rule and who had largely managed to achieve this during Syria’s eight-year civil war. Before the Oct. 9 invasion, the Kurds controlled about a quarter of the country — an area rich in oil, water and agriculture. It represented the largest chunk of Syria not controlled by the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

But under Moscow’s and Ankara’s plan, the Kurdish fighters will have to withdraw even further out of the territory that they previously held, dealing a heavy blow to their dreams of regional autonomy and independence.
