Sergei Rudskoi, Head of the Russian General Staff’s Main Operations Department, has said that the Syrian Army have deployed in areas controlled by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

It was reported by Al-Masdar’s Yusha Yousef that the Syrian Army may start using SDF-held areas as staging grounds to launch offensives against ISIS, if it is deemed necessary to use these areas.

This statement by Rudskoi is a confirmation that the Syrian Army have begun using SDF-held areas in the Aleppo countryside.

“In accordance with the agreements reached with the participation of the Russian air group command in Syria, Syrian armed forces units have been deployed to the territory held by the Kurdish self-defense forces on March 3,” Rudskoi said.

The Manbij Military Council earlier announced an agreement had been reached with the Russian side on transferring villages west of that city located along the line of contact with Operation Euphrates Shield that involves the Turkish armed forces and Syrian opposition units to the Syrian government border troops, TASS reported.
