Turkish-US land patrols in Syria to start on September 8

Ankara-Joint military land patrols by Turkish and US forces in northeast Syria are planned to start on September 8, state-owned Anadolu news agency quoted Defense Minister Hulusi Akar as saying on Friday.

The two NATO allies are working to establish what Turkey says will be a “safe zone” along the border in northeast Syria – a region mainly controlled by Kurdish YPG forces – and have conducted multiple joint helicopter patrols over the area.
