The Turkish Defense Ministry has confirmed the arrival of six US military personnel who will be involved in the work of the coordination centre for joint operations and the planned security zone in northern Syria.

Washington and Ankara announced a deal last week on a buffer zone between Turkey and US-backed Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria. Turkish authorities consider them to be an offshoot of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which is banned in the country.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had previously threatened to invade the territory east of the Euphrates River to secure the border from Kurdish forces.

The Syrian government has objected to the US-Turkish deal as an attack on its sovereignty because both countries’ militaries are operating in Syria without permission from Damascus.

And Kurds being passed about like a w***e. They are traitors to their Syrian homeland. Once Idlib is cleared, the Al Tanf area should be cleared of the #YanquiAsesino and then the Kurds with their lovers.

Urgente apresurar la ofensiva en Idlib y norte de Alepo para liberar Siria de los terroristas y luego a recuperar zonas petroleras de los traidores Kurdos que sirven al imperio. El patriotismo pesa mucho mas, por tanto muchos ciudadanos optarán por ayudar a la liberación de la opresión Turca y los Kurdos serán abandonados.
