Istanbul (AP) - In northern Syria runs out today about a six-day truce. Turkey and Russia had reached an agreement about two weeks after the start of a Turkish offensive against the Kurdish YPG militia in northeastern Syria. Turkey regards the YPG, which has long controlled a large area along the Syrian-Turkish border, as a terrorist organization. The agreement should give the YPG 150 hours of time to withdraw from border areas. Turkey threatened to continue the offensive if the withdrawal was not completed on time.
