The US says it is stepping aside for an imminent Turkish operation against Kurdish-led forces within Syria that have until now been a key US ally. 

Kurdish militias played a major role in defeating the Islamic State (IS) group, but Turkey regards them as terrorists.

The US – which has hundreds of troops near the Turkey-Syria border – has reportedly begun to withdraw them.

The main Kurdish-led force has condemned the pullout and accused the US of abandoning its fighters.
