“The U.S. is preparing to legitimize the Peshmerga and Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK) by declaring several small countries in Iraq and Syria”, a Turkish daily reported on Saturday.

Yeni Safak newspaper quoted a commander who held a senior position in the Syrian army for an extended period of time and shifted to opposition ranks in 2013 as saying, “I was told that in the second half of 2018, a total of seven boutique states would be declared in Syria and Iraq”.

(FNA) ~ The opposition commander added that officials from the U.S. State Department and Pentagon had held meetings with them in Turkey’s Hatay province’s Reyhanlı district.

He said that the U.S. officials underlined that “Sunnis should be more active, otherwise they will suffer more victimization”.

“The Americans who met with us told us that they were our allies and that if we followed their conditions the opposition would be more strongly supported in line with the 2012 vision. America’s aim is to enable Israel to gain more of the Lebanon-Syria border and block Hezbollah’s passageway”, said the opposition commander, who highlighted that federal status would be granted along the Golan and as-Sweida line for Israel’s security and the security of the Druze community was a guise.

“Of the active petrol regions in Syria, 65 percent has been delivered to the PKK. The area that the U.S. reserved for the Sunnis is narrow and does not take into account the population”, the commander said.

The Syrian commander, who said that the U.S. would resort to various provocations along the border, stressed that Washington was also trying to aggravate civilians against Turkey.

According to Yeni Safak, the U.S. included:

  • the Latakia-Tartus-Damascus line in the Nusayri federal region
  • the Sweida-Golan-Quneitra line for the Druze community
  • Aleppo, Idlib and Hama were allocated to the Sunnis
    (in the divisive map plotted by the US)
  • al-Hasakah, Northern Deir Ezzur, Raqqa, Manbij
    and Qamishli to the PKK
  • Iraq’s Tikrit-Salah ad Din-Anbar-Falluja for the Sunnis
  • Erbil-Duhok-Halabja-Sulaymaniya for the Peshmerga
  • Baghdad-Nassriya- Kadisiyye-Najaf corridor for the Shiites
