BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has officially entered the city of Kobani (var. ‘Ayn Al-‘Arab) this evening after securing a deal with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) earlier in the week.

According to a report from northern Syria, the Syrian Arab Army troops outside of Kobani were permitted to enter the city after the full withdrawal of the U.S. troops from the area.

Following the U.S. withdrawal, the Syrian Army swiftly move in and began deploying their troops across the city, as several residents took to the streets to witness this historic moment.

Kobani played an important role in the victory against the Islamic State, as the city itself was the scene of the terrorist group’s first major defeat during their reign of terror inside Syria.

When Kobani was besieged by the hordes of ISIS in 2014-5, Turkish artillery occasionally came to the aid of ISIS from across the border, shelling the defenders of the city.

Of course my friend, everybody knows that USA-Israel-NATO planned and has been supporting terrorists (together with the help of Qatar, Saudis, Jordan, Turkey) to destroy Syria, that is all of this is about. Russia has helped a lot to almost avoided the total destruction of Syria by terrorists. However, now is supporting a lot Turkey (NATO member) at Idlib and its invasion to north Syria, due to Russia economical and commercial ties with Turkey ($$$).
