Turkey and U.S. hold 2nd safe zone patrols in Syria
U.S. and Turkish troops conducted their second joint ground patrol today within a planned safe zone in northern Syria, along the Syrian-Turkish border, according to the Turkish Defense Ministry.
A convoy of four armored Turkish Armed Forces vehicles in the southeastern Sanliurfa province crossed the border and met with a U.S. military convoy to join the joint land patrol.
The Turkish and U.S. forces are set to conduct a land patrol in the Syrian town of Tal Abyad.
U.S. and Turkish troops conducted their joint ground patrol for the zone on September 8.
