Turkey and Russia to begin joint patrols in Syria on November 1

Russia and Turkey will start joint patrols of a 7 km-wide area around a safe-zone in northern Syria on November 1, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.

He also said that the safe-zone, previously negotiated with the U.S., could be widened, if Kurdish attacks on Turkey continue, Sputnik reported.

The Turkish leader said  his country sees that the withdrawal of the Kurdish militia from the Syrian border under the agreement with Russia has not been completed and warned that a new military operation against the YPG forces could be launched by Ankara if the situation doesn't change.
