BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:50 A.M.) – The U.S. Coalition and Turkish regime are currently working to ease tensions in northern Syria after the recent hostilities between Ankara and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the Al-Raqqa, Al-Hasakah, and Aleppo provinces.

According to the Pentagon spokesperson Sean Robertson, “the sides specified the list of equipment that refugee centers need in order to prepare for the winter period,” he said.

The United States continues to try to de-escalate the situation between the Kurds and Turkey in Syria, US Department of Defense spokesperson Sean Robertson told Sputnik.

“We continue to engage the leadership on all sides in order to deescalate the situation,” Robertson said on Monday. “The idea is to keep fight focus on ISIS [Daesh].”

The Syrian Democratic Forces have long been the point of disagreements between Turkey and the United States.

Ankara has condemned Washington for sending arms and providing other support to the group while Washington has been calling on Ankara for restraint in its conflict with the Kurds.

There is an easy way to ease the tensions in NW Syria. Just remove the uninvited and unwanted US and Turkish military from the region. Simples.

USA and Turkey are friends (NATO members), despite the Turkey theater in Syria war, and their motions in Syria are in mutual agreement and coordination (it seams to me).
