Defense Secretary Mark Esper says the United States will be withdrawing all troops from northeastern Syria and that he expects Syrian Kurds to seek aid from Russia and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
The Free Syrian Police (FSP) has been key to the establishment of law and order in Syria's north over the past six years. As the Assad regime readies for an offensive on Idlib province, the Free Syrian Police say they will continue to protect civilians.
Clashes broke out on Sunday between the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the Syrian Regime in Deir Ezzor. The regime took four villages that the SDF was able to regain it with support from Coalition air forces.
