BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – The flag of the Syrian Arab Republican has been raised over several buildings inside the Kurdish-held districts in Aleppo city, Syrian government sources reported this afternoon.

According to the government sources, an agreement was put in place between the Syrian government and Kurdish PYD to allow the former to raise their flag over their buildings in the Sheikh Maqsoud, Al-Halek, Baydin, and Al-Sheikh Khadr districts of Aleppo.

In addition to raising their flag over these areas, the Syrian government is allowed to operate inside these districts.

This agreement is expected to also be implemented in the Afrin Canton in the coming weeks as the government and PYD attempt to normalize relations in the Aleppo Governorate.
