ANKARA – Turkish and US troops began on Sunday the first joint ground patrol of the planned security zone in northeastern Syria. Anadolu Agency reported.

According to the TV channel TRT, a military convoy moved from the Turkish Akcakale County, which is located on the border with Syria.

The Turkish and US military agreed on August 7 to establish a joint operations center in Syria. August 12 in the Turkish city of Sanliurfa 50 km from the border with Syria arrived the first group of US troops who will work in this structure. The center is organized by the two countries to implement a plan to create a buffer zone in the North of Syria, where Syrian refugees can return from Turkey and which would become a protective belt for the Turkish border. Ankara insists that control over the planned security zone is provided exclusively by the armed forces of the Republic.
