BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 A.M.) – On Wednesday, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) officially took control of its first Kurdish-held villages in the western Manbij countryside following a Russian-brokered deal extensively covered by Al-Masdar News over the past week.

While Kurdish militants loyal to the Manbij Military Council departed and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) departed to Manbij, a SAA convoy entered Kurdish-held territory accommodated by Russian special forces.

Effectively, the SAA imposed full control over the villages of Kur Huyuk, Kurt Wayran, Al-Bughaz, Abu Hayj, and Jubb Al-Hamra.

The Manbij Military Council confirmed the development in a statement on Wednesday evening.

This region, bordering territory held by the Turkish-backed Euphrates Shield Forces, will be manned exclusively by Syrian border guards and the National Defense Forces (NDF).

More villages will be handed over if the deal proves a success for both parties.

Great news, hopefully the barbaric turks will stop their attacks on these ceasefire villages. Even after the plan was announced Erdogans thugs kept fighting the Kurds. Hopefully when ISIL is cleaned from Eastern Aleppo (Which I believe will be done in a few weeks) something is done about the Roaches and their Islamist friends
