Aleppo, Syria (3:25 P.M.) – A Kurdish official from the Democratic Union Party (PYD) told Al-Mayadeen News Agency on Monday that they have refused the U.S.’ demands to withdraw east of the Euphrates River towards the Al-Raqqa Governorate.

The U.S. is attempting to mediate between Turkey and the Kurdish forces; however, they have repeatedly demanded the latter adhere to Ankara’s guidelines regarding the YPG’s presence in the Aleppo Governorate.

Earlier today, local activists reported that the Turkish Army penetrated almost 20km deep into the Kobane countryside, causing several Kurdish civilians to protest their illegal presence near this strategic border-city.

Err, NOT20 km but 20m into Kobane in order to begin building a wall! Couldn’t they just do it into Turkey? Nope! They are turks!
Nevertheless, SDF refused US demand to attack Raqqah too…

The only thing Turks are good at is going backwards. Right now they’re in the 6th century, like slime oozing out of the swamp…

The kurds can rot for all I care. Zio puppets and notorious backstabbers. Let kurds and turks and FSA and ISIS all kill each other, half the work done for the SAA. They have other things on their mind atm.

The sad thing is they represent the best chance for peace and democracy in the entire middle east, and you’re so twisted up that you haven’t the clarity to see it. It’s your loss.

Lol thats your opinion. Stinks, but still your opinion. Peace and democracy like their backstabbing fiasco in hasakah last week? Nice one. People in the middle east just dont get along jn general, thats why the zionist exploit it and cause conflicts so easily. There will never be total peace, and syria under assad was secular and democratic as it gets.

ISIS se retiró para dar pase a los terroristas de Erdogan, Los Kurdos tienen que buscar alianza con los Rusos y abandonar a los EE.UU.
