BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) will enter several areas in northern Syria in the coming days as part of a cooperation agreement with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to protect the region from a Turkish military expansion.

According to a military source from the Syrian Army, the military is sending reinforcements to the cities of Manbij, Kobani, and Al-Tabaqa, along with several towns in their surroundings.

Furthermore, the Syrian Army will be allowed access to several sites across the Al-Hasakah Governorate, including much of the provincial capital, which will be duly patrolled by their troops and the People’s Protection Units (YPG).

The source told Al-Masdar News that both sides agreed to discuss the future governance of the territories in northern Syria in the near future; however, the important thing now is to prevent the Turkish Army and their allies from taking control of the territories east of the Euphrates.

While this agreement will not be favorable for the U.S., it does provide much relief for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), who have no air defense weapons to prevent Turkish warplanes from bombarding their territories.

The Turkish-backed militants have already vowed to continue their attacks in northern Syria, despite the fact the Syrian Army moved in to these areas.

The White House already stated they expected the SDF to join up with the SAA and with Russian backing confront Turkey. . with the US watching from the sidelines . All the benefits without any risks of getting caught up in a war with a NATO partner.
