The cease fire hasn’t occurred…..
Did President Trump get duped into believing Turkey would stop it’s going after more land in Northern Syria?
With American troops withdrawn and Russian and Syrian Troop’s in the region with Kurds?
America has NO influence or control on the military operations of the parties involved…
Russian President Putin (Trump’s friend) is flying into to see The Turkish President , whose military is a member of NATO?
Trump should be happy?
Shelling and gunfire continued in northern Syria on Friday morning, casting further doubt on the feasibility of a cease-fire announced a day before by Vice President Mike Pence between Turkish and Kurdish forces and raising questions about whether the Americans can even enforce it.
The Kurdish leadership in northern Syria accused the Turkish military and its proxies of violating the terms of the truce. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan denied that any fighting was continuing.
But shelling raged on in the Syrian border town of Ras al-Ain, and gunfire could be heard by journalists just across the border in Turkey. The continuation of the deadly conflict provided further evidence of the United States’ diminished influence, showing that the American military, having evacuated its troops from northern Syria, had no practical ability to enforce the cease-fire.
The truce deal had already amounted to a near victory for Mr. Erdogan, who appears to have outmaneuvered President Trump, since it gave the assent of the United States to a Turkish sphere of influence in northern Syria.
