Kurdish fighters pull from Syrian border City while Erdogan expects US to’keep Claims’

The Kurdish-led Syrian Army (SDF) said on Sunday it had pulled all of its fighters out of the border city of Ras al-Ain, while Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey hopes the US to maintain its claims to a five-day truce.

The SDF’s escape a part of a US-brokered bargain to draw from a”secure zone” that Turkey intends to set near its boundary.

“We do not have some fighters from town,” Kino Gabriel that the SDF spokesman said in a statement.

Before, Turkey-backed rebels who had taken charge of the majority of the city last week had stated that the Syrian civic YPG militia were still entrenched in almost 30 percent of their town.

Ankara and Washington agreed on Thursday to some five-day truce in northeastern Syria to permit the Allied Kurdish YPG militia to draw from a”secure zone” that Turkey intends to establish.

Erdogan has stated the offensive will restart if the withdrawal isn’t finished within five days.

Speaking at an event in Istanbul, Erdogan stated he’d informed the European Union nations and the U.S. delegation by which he struck the bargain that Turkey would restart the performance in the event the deal.
