With Trump’s decision to disengage in Syria (for the most part) and leave the Kurdish-led administration in northern Syria to their own devices, Turkey has moved in quickly to clear Kurdish forces from the border area. Areas under the control of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), have come under heavy bombardment, with Turkey making gains in key border towns.
Syrian state media has reported that government forces had been deployed to the north to assist the SDF who have now decided to work with the Assad-led legitimate government in Syria.
The Syrian troop deployment would assist the SDF in countering “aggression and liberating the areas that the Turkish army and mercenaries had entered”, according to a Syrian government statement.
With the US out fo Syria, the world now awaits to see what Russia, and Vladimir Putin, will do, in what will be an intense diplomatic push to bring all sides to a final peace agreement in Syria. Also: (The Duran) – Ukraine MP claims to have documents linking Joe Biden to $900K payoff
