US Forces Patrol Towns in Northeastern Syria

A convoy of U.S. armored vehicles patrols border towns in northeastern Syria, Saturday, November 9, a day after Kurdish protesters hurled rocks at Turkish military vehicles. During the incident, one civilian died when he was run over by a personnel carrier.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is accusing Moscow and Washington of reneging on commitments to enforce the withdrawal of a Syrian Kurdish militia from Turkey's border, and he is warning of a resumption of military operations in Syria.
Erdogan struck two separate deals in October, with Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, with both agreeing the YPG would withdraw at least 30 kilometers from the Turkish border.
In return, Ankara agreed to pause its military offensive into Syria against the YPG, which displaced more than 100,000 people, mainly Kurds.
