UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — US-backed Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) will pull out of a 5 to 14 km (6 to 10 mile) wide border on the border with Turkey, a spokesman for the Syrian Democratic Forces said on Tuesday.
Pali told Reuters that according to the US-Turkish talks, the width of the border line on the Syrian side would vary and would include rural areas or military sites, not cities or towns.
The SDF, led by the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), controls most of northern and eastern Syria after seizing territory from the Islamic State.
