Situation in northern Aleppo province as of March 23, 2018.
Rate Article (5 / 1)

BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – Reports have emerged stating that Moscow and Ankara are in talks about the future of the Kurdish-held town of Tal Riffat in northern Aleppo province which still hosts a Russian military base.

Sources say that Turkey is demanding that all elements of Kurdish paramilitary forces be removed from the highly-strategic town as well as other areas still under Kurdish control in Aleppo province’s northern countryside.

Ankara apparently also wishes to see long since displaced Arab residents from Tal Riffat be allowed to return to their hometown.

Some reports (unconfirmed) suggest that a small number of Russian military personnel are still present in and around Tal Riffat despite claims of a full Russian withdrawal from the town and its surrounding area just prior to Turkey’s Olive Branch operation.

More details to come.

Why should Russia withdraw?
They’re there at the invitation of Syria.
This is a Syrian town, not a Turkish one.

It’s neither Turkish or Russian for them two to be “negotiating” on it!
Enough of destroying Syrian sovereignty, Syria can’t allow more towns to be occupied by Turk-FSA terrorists and mercenaries… I mean they can, but then it’s just more work to be done later.

JmNZ : because Putin has contracted the building of a gas pipeline to Turkey and the sale of S-400 at $200M per battery…

Rusia se me cayó, debe darle verguenza permitir que el terrorista Erdogan se salga con la suya, no debió permitir que los mercenarios Turcos invadan territorio Sirio.

There are also reports of putin sending a big number of virgin russian girls to turkey to work as sexual slaves in the sultan’s harem palace. He is a russian legend.
