BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have sent reinforcements to a border-city in the northwestern part of the Al-Hasakah province.
According to local reports, the Syrian Democratic Forces sent reinforcements to the city of Ras Al-Ayn in response to the Turkish military buildup along the border.
The U.S. Coalition has also setup a new observation post near Ras Al-Ayn, which should force the Turkish military to concentrate on another front.
While the Syrian Democratic Forces strengthen their lines in northern Syria, the Turkish military and their rebel allies have begun mobilizing their troops in the Kilis province.
It appears that their first target for the Turkish Armed Forces will be the northeastern cities of the Aleppo province.
In particular, the Turkish military will likely target the Manbij and Kobane countrysides; they currently have a large presence of SDF and YPG fighters.
