Turkey deploys troops near Kurdish stronghold in Syria

(Worthy News) - Turkey deployed hundreds of troops near a Kurdish stronghold in Syria Sunday, in the wake of the United States announcing plans to withdraw from the country.

A Turkish military column including trucks and armored personnel carriers as well as other carriers with armored vehicles, other material and ammunition entered the countryside of the Manbij area, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Trump wrote on Twitter Sunday that he had a "long and productive" call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan regarding military deployment in Syria. [ Source: UPI (Read More...) ]
