Written by thereachfm on October 24, 2019
Russian forces have begun to deploy towards the Turkey-Syria border, as part of deal to remove Kurdish troops.
Under the deal agreed by Russia and Turkey, Russian and Syrian forces will remove Kurdish fighters from a large stretch of the border.
Turkish troops will continue to control an area they took during a recent offensive against the Kurdish fighters, whom Turkey regards as terrorists.
Part of Turkey’s plan is also to create a “safe zone” along the border that will house some two million of the Syrian refugees it hosts.
