Russian Forces Drive Through Syrian Streets
Russian troop convoys drive through the border town of Al-Dirbasiyah, Friday, October 25, in footage shared by VOA’s Kurdish Service.
Russian military police forces have begun patrolling Kurdish-majority cities and towns in the Syria-Turkey border, local sources said Thursday.
Russian military vehicles were seen driving along local Kurdish forces through several cities in northeastern Syria, a local reporter told VOA.
This comes days after Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan reached a deal to end Turkey’s military offensive against the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a Kurdish-led alliance that has played a major role in the U.S.-led fight against the Islamic State (IS) terror group in Syria.
