Map: Turkish-proposed Safe Zone East Of Euphrates In Northern Syria

Support SouthFront

On January 16, Turkey’s Anadolu Agency released a map of the alleged safe zone in the area east of the Euphrates in northern Syria, which had been recently discussed between the US and Turkey. According to the Turkish side, this zone would include the entire area from  the town of Jarabulus to the town of al-Malikiyah.

Ankara has been for a long time demanding to force Kurdish armed groups [YPG and Kurdish SDF units] out of the border area with Turkey. However, Washington, which uses these groups as its main proxy force, has been against this plan.

It seems that this situation may have changed.

The YPG and its political leadership are deeply concerned over the possible US-Turkish agreement on the establishing of this zone because this would mean the dramatic decrease of its influence in the area and the loss of several key towns.
