Head of the Joint Council of Raqqa announced on Thursday that the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) will continue its negotiations with the Syrian government on the SDF-controlled areas irrespective of the absence or presence of the US troops in Syria.
“The SDF does not pay heed to the US presence or absence in Syria,” the Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper quoted Leila Mostafa as saying, referring to the ongoing talks between SDF and the Damascus government on SDF-controlled al-Jazira region in eastern and northeastern Syria.
She noted that the representatives of the Syrian government and the SDF have held talks in the town of Ain Issa in Northern Raqqa, and said, “the two sides will hold similar meetings in the near future.”
In a relevant development on Sunday, the predominately-Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces surrendered control of the strategic Tishrin Dam in Northern Syria to the Damascus troops a day after it retreated from the key town of Manbij to be replaced by the Syrian Army.
The Arabic-language website of Sputnik reported that the army took control of the Tishrin Dam in Eastern Aleppo on Saturday afternoon after the SDF forces retreated from the region.

Fake reporting as YPG left Manbij months ago. The video was a fake replay of last year and there are NO SAA in Manbij city. MMC reports they are in full controlmof the city.

Tel abyad will remain under SDF and YPG control, though there might be a border guard by SAA.

Syria land belong to Syria people, if kurds want to become part of Syria people, that is ok. However, if SDF-kurds (USAIsrael-puppets) want to be independent withing Syria land, this is not admissible.
