Turkey's Syria offensive: Russia steps into void left by US | DW News 4.5

Syrian Kurds have formed a partnership with government troops and Syria's Russian allies. They have now moved into previously Kurdish-held areas, including the city of Manbij. Meanwhile, Turkish forces are continuing to shell positions in northern Syria. Turkey is rejecting calls for a ceasefire in the offensive it launched in northern Syria against Kurdish militias. US Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are on their way to Turkey to try to persuade Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to end the fighting. This comes after US President Donald Trump imposed economic sanctions on Ankara for targeting the Kurds inside Syria.

Has anyone noticed the amazing coordination? Notice how Assad and the Russians let Turkey finish attacking the targets they want and how more land is recovered by Assad’s military! It’s all a game played by the major players and it’s working externally well! 🇨🇦🙂

It's evil when Russia does it with their main Allies but when its the United States doing it, it's all good and for the right reasons.
