The US military reportedly deployed about 1,000 fighters loyal to the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) in the Syrian Tel-Abyad area on the Syrian-Turkish border.

According to Anadolu Agency, the US military carried out reconnaissance operations in the Syrian Tel-Abyad area on the Syrian-Turkish border prior to deployment.

Previously, the US-led coalition reportedly announced that it would establish a 30,000-strong new border security force with People’s Protection Units (YPG)-led Syrian Democratic Forced in Syria, which has already outraged Turkey. However later US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson claimed that the United States was not creating a border security force, saying that the issue was “misportrayed.”

Turkey has been threatening with an operation against the Syrian Kurdish fighters.

“The United States is now creating a terrorist army near our borders that threatens the security of Turkey. Our task is to strangle this army until it is born. If the United States wants to establish cooperation with these savage creatures, it is their business. But we will not allow this,” Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said earlier this week.

=> Dream on! You’ve been enough warned!
Recep, you should consider packing your bags and learn to speak Dutch! A cell is waiting for you at the Hague’s ICC prison!

This guy, Tillerson said the other guy (official, uniformed, military spokesman did not use exact word. Pentagon guy said 30000 border guards. The officer should have said 30000 border safety scouts. Nothing important. The US rips apart internationally signed and sealed and in force for over a year. Turkey thinks a verbal he said, she said bumbling suppose to mean a thing. Wishful thinking.
